Chaos Furies

Furies are yowling and vicious gargoyle-like daemonic beasts of Chaos Undivided. A Chaos Fury has large, vicious, hooked claws and leathery, bat-like wings. A short mane of rough fur runs from the Fury's vestigial horns to the base of its spine. Furies are commonly black; however, as beings of unrefined chaotic power, they can appear in all manner of hues, depending on which of the Dark Gods is in ascendance.

Chaos Furies are quite cowardly by daemonic standards and always attack in large packs and from the air to gain any advantage they can over their target. Furies are common place in most Daemon armies as they are easily swayed to support alligned Daemons as they have no patron deity of their own to decide their intentions.

Usually, these winged and clawed creatures can be summoned in the same nature as other Chaos daemons. But it is said that Furies are created from the souls of those humans and other sentient beings who selfishly served Chaos for their own personal gain, rather than devoting themselves heart and soul to a single Chaos God. So when they finally fall or die in battle, no Chaos God will claim them -- and their tragic fate means they can never enter any of the Ruinous Powers' personal kingdoms within the Realm of Chaos. They are doomed to spend eternity in a grotesque, gargoyle-like state, drifting like a leaf through the chaotic eddies of the Immaterium, forever exposed to its unpredictable nature. Such is the punishment for indecisiveness and selfishness amongst the Dark Gods. The only respite from this fate for a Fury are the rare daemonic incursions into realspace which allows them to vent their impotent wrath upon unfortunate mortals.

Because they serve no patron Chaos God, Furies rank very low in the daemonic hierarchy of Chaos. However, their leathery, bat-like wings allow them to strike swiftly and from above, which gives them an advantage over many more powerful Lesser Daemons and Daemonic Beasts and makes them an asset for a daemonic force.

When a harpy engages in battle, it prefers to use Flyby Attack and strike with its vicious claws.

Chaos Furies have no aptitude for using ranged weapons, their demonic nature and over-sized hands make them incapable of using them anyway.

I think these are a bit bland and you should edit out your reference to harpies.
