So, I'm starting a Daemons army and it looks like the Slaaneshi powers could work well with a Freakshow list.
Has anyone tried this out before, or have any thoughts on it?

Dunno about powers, but Slaaneshi daemons are my favorite of the daemons for their mobility. That alone would work well with DE even if they are come the apocalypse.

Strangely enough, they're only Desperate Allies

Oh, definitely. They're on the table for my own Freakshows! Once my TGG2 minis come in, I'll have some Slaanesh demons to add to the mix.

You have to keep a close eye on your One Eye Open bubbles, but it can definitely be an awesome combo.

There's actually considerable fluff where dark eldar cults to slaanesh appear, including an entire black library book revolving around one.  I can't remember the name but I doubt you'd want to read it anyway as the dark eldar of course end up being painfully easy to defeat.

That said, I end up going through the same sad process when trying to ally deamons to dark eldar as I do with when allying the dark kin to most anything:

I start looking at other units to mix in and overcome the shared weaknesses of dark eldar and slaaneshi units, and find the daemon units fill these gaps much better.  By the time I plug these holes, I realize that I'm close to an incursion anyway, so I include more daemons to take advantage of the pretty solid formation bonuses... After I finish comparing Soul grinders vs Ravagers or taloi and reavers vs seekers or flesh hounds, there just aren't many (if any) dark eldar units left.

And this is why I stopped checking this board - for months I had only been fielding a grotesquerie anyway.  After adding quite a few units to my collection that fill the same role or better (18 chaos spawn, 9 plague drones, 6 beasts of nurgle) I literally don't field any dark kin anymore.

I don't even really play my corsairs at this point either, but that's mainly because they're brutal and no one wants to line up against them.

Daemons let you bring some cheaper troops and much less tax/restrictions when taking them, plus more reliable in getting their freakshow powers

Yup, I'm very familiar with this phenomenon. I rarely field many DE units any more. There are a few that are unique enough to be worthy of mention(reavers, khymera, grotesquerie), but are often not worth fielding what you need to purchase to unlock them, at the loss of another Eldar/Daemon/Whatever detachment due to the current meta limiting number of detachments in tournaments.

I really hope to see tournaments get rid of the detachment limits in the near future.

I played a game with a freakshow list against some Space Wolves.
My army was about this
Succubus. glaive/AoM
2X warriors in venoms
2X heatlance scourges

Grotesquerie in raiders, abby's with scissorhands

Keeper of Secrets w/2 greater 1 lesser reward ML3
2X10 daemonettes

I ended up winning pretty handily due to some truly horrible rolls on his part, but the list did well in basically all regards.
