1. army book 2. bloodletters/horrors for core(wait a month till the plastic horros come out) 3. hero choices 4. special/rare choices 6. Bloodthirster for 2k+ games. Thats som,e basic advice I always make up a list wether it 1k 1500 or 2k then buy from that.

First of all, after getting the Daemons of Chaos Army Book, it would be a good idea to decide if you are going to do an army belonging to only one of the four Chaos Gods (otherwise known as a mono-god army).

Secondly, take a look at the Core choices: http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/armySubUnitCats.jsp?catId=cat1300229&rootCatGameStyle=

Since those are the building blocks of your army, these are the most important guys. I would advice against getting Furies though...

After you have a couple of those units, you'll want a Character: http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/armySubUnitCats.jsp?catId=cat1300228&rootCatGameStyle=

Depending on whether it is supposed to be fluffy or not, Special Characters might be a good idea or not. Fluffwise, it is normally best to have them in mono-god army, but if you just want to get models you like in the army or are a competitive player, it doesn't matter so much.

There are some new Daemons arriving next month too:

Plastic Daemon Prince.
Plastic Seekers of Slaanesh.
More metal heralds.

However, none of these are going to affect your Core choices, which is good.

Oh, and lastly - it's Daemons, not Demons. :p
