What about the risk of taking multiple rounds of shooting as opposed to just one?

That's perfectly fine, you are a Nurgle Herald in a unit of PB's your job is to get shot at and survive.

End of the day a single breathe shot is never going to compensate for loosing around 200pts of models (Breathe Palanquin herald and say 7 PB's). Even if you do hit it is only 4's to wound which is ok.

If you want to have a breathe bomb then you have to take Flamers, end of. You get 3 Breathe templates for 105pts, almost the same as the Palanquin, Breathe Herald on his own. That means you get 3 times as many hits and suddenly wounding on 4's is not so mediocre.

Dropping a single Breathe template in close is never going to do a lot of damage (exclude a lot of luck) and then your Herald is going to get counter charged and die like a chump to the first lot of power weapons/fists that swing his way as he will be in combat too early and the tally won't have kicked in.

This is a nice army list you have posted. In fact it has made me want to start the Mono Nurgle army and run the list as presented. Rep worthy for sure.

Mono Nurgle is terribly slow and suffers greatly against armor. The posted list doesn't have much mobility or anti-tank, so mech runs right over it. Kill the Princes and you lose.

It's not very competitive, unless you play a bunch of noobs with foot armies.
