If anyone has some advice on how to deal with it i'll appreciate it!
ObjSecured Summons will be a pain for me since i'm running a BA-BaalStrikeForce and if things go very wrong there might be even a 4th Thirster  ;D

1x Bloodthirster of Unfettered Fury - Greater Demonic Reward
11x Pink Horrors of Tzeentch

I fight Bloodthirsters a lot.
1-shot high strength weapons like lascannons and meltaguns are good against them.
Worst case scenario just use suicide units to keep them stuck in assaults while you grab tactical objectives.

Well i can see how shooting them with the appropriate weapons could get me rid of one of them early enough.
However lists are locked in and i won't have enough bodies to throw at them to bog 2 of them down if i want to have any fight left in me for other units to deal with. 5man Marine units aren't much of a speedbump for a Thirster i fear. He got a good chance to wipe them in one round of combat.

I do have 2 razorbacks. I could force them to attack before they can get to the marines inside. would that make sense?
I could really get into trouble with grabbing objectives since as i mentioned, i lack Objective Secured.

Any tactical Advice to outplay these things? :)

I can't offer much, Khorne Daemons are a powerhouse right now.

Alright, thanks anyway ;)

With my locked in list i might even be fine, i was just wondering what to do if i had a more regular list!
Right now i have a vindicator to shoot at the chaos lord and leave it up to him if he wants to "look out sir" to the crushers or have the 3rd Thirster right away. Possibly shoot down one of them with all the firepower i have and maybe hold up #3 until i can drop my  FuriosoLibby onto him who hopefully doesn't get onehit by a smash-attack again... With any other list on my side i imagine i'd really be in trouble! Guess i'll try to spread out as much as possible!

AV13 Dreadnoughts or really big fearless units seem to be the only thing that can at least bog them down for a while :D
