I wanted to use the Daemon prince as I havent tried him out yet, I have to admit Im a bit anxious of the treemen my enemy is likely to field, hence the decision to use fire magic. Slaanesh magic is intended to disrupt his movement phase.

I have gone cav heavy as well to counter his hit and run tactics.
the infantry blocks serve to mop up and take out bigger units.

I think the demon prince costs way to many points for him to be worth it. I would run a tzeentch sorcerer lord on a disc, obviously its not the same in combat but in reality the demon prince will need to dual charge to break something in combat most of the time. You can take a sorcerer lord with MoT, lvl 4, disc, golden eye of tzeentch, dispel scroll, infernal puppet, conjoined humunculus, and bloodcurdling roar (that's not too important how ever I just like it a lot) for 445 points in comparison to the demon prince for 510.

Demon Prince needs more gifts to be more effective. At this points level he's still kinda iffy. Field him at 3k more like.

Chaos Warshrine

The game went down on Sunday, and my opponent tried to match me in Close combat, needless to say he just bounced, he lost 6 challenges and was basically slaughtered outright.

A big mistake, he didn't bring much magic defence, and I got lucky, I managed to get at least 1 spell off each turn, and in 2 turns got 2 off which laid out nearly half his army.

just the treeman was left in T6, everything else was dead or running.
I was about 300pts shy of a massacre. I don't think my list was as great as his was bad.

Well i like the prince, may not be the most cost effective unit in the game but does work well with diabolic splendor and doom totem. I would suggest also giving him tendrils so he can saflty throw lots of power dice to cast gateway with little fear of getting a miscast. also id make one of your low level casters nurgle, as magnificent buboes is a great spell not to mention if your lucky you may get the regen spell which can help to keep your units and prince alive.
