Default Nurgle with Lord of Skulls 1,850 battle forged

So here's my attempt at a cheesy list with what I do have^^:

HQ:

GUO
ML3 (Biomancy)
2xExalted Reward (swapping one for Balesword)

Troops:

10 Plaguebearers

3 Nurgling Bases

Fast Attack:

3 Plague Drones
Plaguebringer
Lesser Reward (Etherblade)
Icon

Blight Drone

Heavy Support:

Soul Grinder
DoN
Phlegm

Lords of War:

Lord of Skulls
Skullhurler

It couldn't have fitted better at just 1,849 points.

The idea is to move the Drones and Lord of Skulls up the table as quickly as possible, then DS in the GUO and the Plaguebearers for a massive charge on the next turn (the Lord of Skulls makes for an excelent damage sponge since it's a huge model and damaging it will only make it more angry xD)

Alternatively the entire army can be deployed in cover with the GUO casting Endurance on everything around him to make an unkillable gunline. You might not get many shots but those templates will definetly lay down the hurt! (the Skullhurler alone should be able to rack up a pretty decent killcount)^^.

mmh, an extremely small body count...that means that every enemy gun will be pointed on the GUO and then on the Skullcrusher.
I'd rather field an horde of plaguebearers as MSU and deepstrike them amongst the enemy, then take a tzeentch herald with horrors & portaglyph for some more spam and support the big boy with a couple of winged DP's...
but this of course would break the "models I own" rule, i guess

I never said it was intended to win me alot of games (especially now that I don't have the time or the opponents to play with). I just really dislike having a lot of troops clogging the board. I have a couple of spare units to play around with (ie. Be'Lakor, Screamers and Cultists), but this was all I could cram into a 1,850pts list.

I'd rather have 2 squads of Nurglings, honestly. Easier to hide, more wounds, half as many points, still have Shrouded, and just as slow.

If you're bringing a Blight Drone, why not a Plague Hulk instead of a SGoN? Cheaper mini with essentially similar stats...

Sadly the Nurglings I own are the small metal ones, the new plastic ones look awesome but I'm afraid that using both in the same force would just look silly. If I happen upon a few more I wouldn't think twice about swapping them for the squad of plaguebearers.

I love the Plague Hulk but it's price tag is a little out of my reach atm. definetly a model I hope to add in the future though!^^

I find that the loose nurglings hanging around a Plaguebearer box and the like can make a good base and a half or so of Nurglings (assuming about 4 little minis per base) who aren't the new, highly-heaped swarm minis--you might have to cut some intestine ropes out of hands, but they don't look too different from the older ones...

If you have an even slightly Nurgle-converted+painted Soul Grinder, I can't imagine people kicking up a fuss about using the one as the other, given how similar the two are.

I'll probably get over my nitpicking in time since I really love the new Nurglings

The thought of just using my Soul Grinder as a Plague Hulk had crossed my mind, they are almost exactly the same in every possible way. I wouldn't have a problem if my opponent fielded one as such so I don't see why anyone else would. I'll definetly give it a try, thnx!

With the Plaguebearers swapped out for more Nurglings and the Soul Grinder counting as a Plague Hulk I might even have enough spare room to swap the GUO for Be'Lakor
