Wow, 20 man Plaguebearers Squads!! I think thats a little over the top, maybe knock them down a little and add another squad cos as it is you havent got a lot of scoring units (despite them being hard as rock). I havent playtested yet but i think Breath of Chaos is more useful than iron hide on the princes, and im not too sure about both gun upgrades on the grinder, buti ts 2k, so u got the pts to play with. I havent played my Nurgle 5th ed yet so im only speakin from 4th ed experience, though.

Kugath + Nurglings

well at least 1 squad has to be 20 there hiding epidemius. I was trying to keep the squads big so they would give up less kill points. ill have to see how they do on objective mission and maybe break them down a bit. Probably going to need to considering all my scoring units are S&P.I have been trying to work breath in there some how but i really don't want to drop iron hide.I might end up dropping phlegm to give one prince breath. Unfortunately the herald was just not pulling his wight so he became more nurglings. What do you think runtherd ?

Yeah im all up for more nurglings, theyre great especially when the tallys high, i know what u mean about iron hide though, maybe lose the phlegm for breath as you said. You may want to keep your squads big, and thats up to you, but plaguebearers are only 15pts so you could drop say a couple in favour of upgrades, like the breath.

yah thanks i dropped 2 plaguebearers from each. to give both DPs breath. Sure now almost 1/4 of my army's points is in them but lol i think it evens out that they enable the nurglings to become as scary as they do. thanks for the idea not sure why i did not think of it and if epidemius cant hide in 18 plaguebearers he is just not worth having i guess. well thanks and unless someone has something else to say it looks like this will end up as my army.

I think that looks pretty solid, at this point I would play that a bit to see how it works and if you wanna change it up at all.

Awesome. ;) Just be careful around lascannons, smart players will aim them at Ku'gath because they know it won't allow him Feel No Pain. Also, use Ku'gath's Nurgling throw as often as you can to help the tally on its way.

Not much to say here.

These units look nice. Maybe a bit big, though. Perhaps drop the two 18 man units to 16 and add the extras to the unit of 10.

Nurglings are awesome. Use them to tie up big nasties like Terminators and such until the Tally powers them up to the point where they can shred anything in seconds.

I think Daemonic Flight might be overkill. Think about dropping that and picking up Daemonic Gaze instead so you can get some kills on the turn that they enter the game.

ditch this guy. He isn't a Nurgle aligned model so he won't help the tally. Maybe look into another Prince?


Best of luck!

I have been considering dropping the soulgrinder and I am not a fan of the wings ,but until the tally is going this list will have a big problem with and armor and even more so with tanks. FNP is awesome, but it also comes with S&P so the wings are nice to have some mobility. Do you see away to deal with the armor problem I think i might end up dropping the iron hide and just count on the T6 to keep him alive anything that is heavy enough to hurt him dose not give a armor save any way.This would give me enouf points to get another DP and add a few gazes.

i would keep the soulgrinder, you cant go wrong there, i know is doesn't help your tally but who cares, every other unit does and just use the grinder to blow up tanks

Daemons
W:9 D:0 L:0

Chaos Marines
W:21 D:2 L:3

If you want peace.....prepare for war!

i tooled the DP for specific jobs the first one is to get to those annoying ranged units. the second to sit back and fire of shots till he is ready to handle the charge. Geting ride of the wings gives me 41 points to work with and i am not sure where to add them could add another 3 man unit of nurglings as a tar pit , i could give a ranged attack to the already pricey DP , or could just add 2 more pleguebearers to shore up them a bit. any suggestions ?
