Daemons of Chaos Nurgle 2250

I was bored, and flipping through the new Army Book, and decided to see how retarded a list (and by retarded, I mean broken) I could come up with. What do you think?

CHARACTERS
-Great Unclean One
--Level 4 Daemonic Lore of Nurgle, Trappings of Nurgle, Slime Trail

-Herald of Nurgle
--Slime Trail

-Herald of Nurgle
--Slime Trail

CORE
-14 Plaguebearers
--Full Command, Icon of Seeping Decay

-14 Plaguebearers
--Full Command, Icon of Seeping Decay

-14 Plaguebearers
--Full Command, Icon of Seeping Decay

-14 Plaguebearers
--Full Command, Icon of Seeping Decay

SPECIAL
-7 Nurgling Bases

RARE
No selections


Now, why, you ask, is this setup outrageously broken? It all comes down to the Daemonic Gift, Slime Trail. Models (and units of which the model is a part or leading) no longer have flanks or a rear if they have Slime Trail. Combine that with the generally decent statline of Plaguebearers, and the Icon of Seeping Decay that not only essentially makes them Hate everyone for all rounds of combat, but also lets them re-roll failed to-wound rolls. With that setup, you end up with units where it doesn't matter if they get outmaneuvered, and even if you do flank them or catch them in the rear somehow, they're probably still going to outfight you. And just as an added bit of flavor, the entire army causes Fear or Terror.

Sweet list, the only thing is I would have EPIDEMIUS because he is ace

The creatures of the Warp have but one trait with which you need concern yourself - their undying contempt for the Emperor. It is your task to quell the rebellion they preach, and the only sure way is to destroy them utterly.
