Default Greater Daemon VS Daemon Prince VS Soul Grinder

With the 5th Edition rule change, the tourny players of my local community had started embracing super extreme lists, some people had more land raiders/monolith than there is star in the sky, and the hoardy armies are just a huge pain in the back side with their cover save.

I have a Tzeentch and Slaanesh daemon force, and i've been pondering what is the best way to field a Daemonkong list while retaining the ability to win games.

I have a KoS and LoC for HQ, and 3 DPs. through experiment, I duely noted that Soul Grinders dont ever survive any intense shooting because of its size and DS restrictions. Keeper of Secret is bloody fantastic , she fleets and comes with O/D grenades, with some upgrade, she has str7 and HnR. Oh the joy of hitting a squad after a squad while moving further down enemy formation.

However, the LoC is definately a better shooter, but much of his abilities can be replaced by a winged DP with Tzeench Mark, Gaze and breath. This falls just short of 250pts. Flying MCs with 4+invul that tears up MEQs and glances vehicles, is a pretty attractive alternative. If ever called for, these babies can even go up against termies in h2h no problems.

So, which do you guys think will work better:
2xKoS + 3xTzeentch DPs or
2xLoC + 3xSlaanesh DPs or
1xKoS, 1xLoC, 2xTzeentch DP and 1xSlaanesh DP?

2 Lords of Change with 3 Daemon Princes, I think. Further, I think you might want to drop the wings on the Daemon Princes.

I think the problem would be getting the walking slaaneshi DPs into combat as they dont have fleet....

This is how i decked out my Slaaneshi DP
Mark of Slaanesh
Iron Hide
Unholy Strength
Pavane
- 170pt

She is competent and is usually fairly decent against MEQs. I've also tried
Mark of Slaanesh
Iron Hide
Unholy Strength
Daemonic Gaze
Transfixing Gaze
- 170pt

This makes a shooty prince that is a bit more survivable against Tactical Squads because i can take away 1 of those PF attacks.

On the other hand...if i was to have a Tzeentch DP
Mark of Tzeentch
Bolt of Change
Breath of Chaos
-170pt

If i was to make him more durable against small arms fire, I'd put on Iron Hide, which would boost him to 200pt.
