Im building a slaanesh army for my wife, they've always been her favourite, and now i'm in need of expansion advice.
So far the units she has are:
20 daemonettes
10 seekers
Masque
Herald on seeker chariot
2 hellflayers
And one lord of change (it looked to cool not to have)

As i have never played chaos in any fashion i am at a loss for which units would be good additions so any advice would be great.

I think more Daemonettes is a good idea, they're the bread and butter being quite cheap (and dying easily enough...) so a solid number can't be a bad idea - a Herald to support them is an idea also. Seekers are pretty nifty so another squad supplemented with a mounted Herald would yield results, giving you a very fast moving assault force to start things off. Not terribly exciting to say "add more basic troops" I know, but I think you really need a good number of them to do the bulk of the work.

You also really want that +1 A for 20+ daemonettes, so another 10 stops you from losing it 

Unless you plan on summoning them, since 20 is the max you can reasonably expect to summon at once.


There may not be Deamons in 40k, but there are certainly Deacons.
I'm also pretty confidant that make up exists in 40k, so there have got to be Rouge Traders out there as well.

I play Necrons, Dark Eldar, and Chaos Space Marines.  I have a big pile of Orks as well, but haven't gotten around to doing anything with them yet.

   Will agree that bulking out the daemonettes and seekers is a good idea, and at some point you may want to buy a couple of fiends of Slaanesh for added punch. Also, concerning the LoC, I would suggest getting at least a unit of Horrors of your choice (Pinks for "shooting", Blues for more close combat, and you have the Brimstone Horrors in the same box so that you can use the "Split" ability) to go along with the big guy and form a Patrol detachment to support your Slaanesh daemons.

You are in luck. The new Getting Started box for Slaanesh went on pre-order yesterday.  Including two Seeker Chariots or  two Heralds on chariots, 5 Seekers, and 10 Daemonettes for just $85.  So, you won't even have to choose as all the boxes contents are useful.
