Found this in YTTH. Would it be worth it to try this army out?

Killy and Resilience. What's not to like?

Total Roster Cost: 2000

You are a bit on the slow side, and against fast armies you'll have problems--that's just the way it is. You have a handful of faster units, those units goals is to push forward and lock units in position for your other units to arrive and slaughter them.

Note that the 4 Heralds of Khorne, the 9 Bloodcrushers, and the 3 Soulgrinders are quite similar to a Demonzilla list. This one is slow, but has more wounds to go around and more units to split the enemies fire.

Wave 1:

4xHeralds, 3xBloodcrushers, 3xSoulgrinder.

Wave 2:

5xPlaguebearers, 3xFlesh Hounds.

Simple enough really, put the scary stuff down and if you fail...you get resilient stuff and some fast cavalry and you have 10 units to roll for on turn 2. Half should come in, which should make things easier as all of them are quite dangerous. :)

Khorne heralds on chariots are a waste of points and walking targets they lose the Independent character special rule and the only bonus they get is one extra wound in the end you will want 4 heralds of tzeentch on a chariot or 2 with fateweaver

if you throw in fateweaver this group will be almost invincible

Im not a fan of these at all. If they had rending or power weapons it would be worth the points i would add a unit of screamers and put the rest of the points elsewhere like elites

Over all i think the list needs reworked allot to work well. I would start by combining some of those bloodcrusher squads and adding some fiends or flamers. The hq section needs to be completely redone and the flesh hounds imo are ineffective.

soulgrinders are pretty useless without the Phlegm upgrade.
~2kish pts Necrons!
~2k Daemons

If you're worrying about phase out, then buy the new codex!

Warrior Spam? it may be acceptable come Nov 5th. A second chance to not be terrible!

i think either tzeentch heralds on chariots insted with bolt for some ranged ant tank. or if you insist on khorne heralds. id still say 1 tzeentch chariot, and 3 khorne heralds on juggernauts for the squads. it would make them so much more scary than they alrady are. as for sould grinders. phlegm. flesh hounds, no. just no. they are crazy killing monsters in fantasy for only 35pts, but 40k, there arent even worth their 15 points each, even with karanak espescially. i think just adding more plaguebearer to the existing unit just because, with bearers, you have to be risky, dropping them right on terrain where the objective is, so you need to make sure, if you roll poorly for dangerous, you still have enogh to last the game on the objective. if i think anything else would work better, ill post it but so far i just took a quick look.
