HQ 110
Epidemius

TROOPS 105
7 Plague Bearers

1748pts

Lord joins Bikes and set to rack up kills.

Epidemius slacks in the "home objective" along with his bodyguard.

The plaguemarines go to cap a forward objective.

Sorcerer joins footslogger Plaguemarines and sits in the midfield, casting.

The Havocs have been outfitted to respond to any threat, and even have a chance against heavier vehicles.

It's a straightforward list, designed to try and get as many kills as possible from early on. I didn't waste any points on power weapons and the like, once Tally hits max, they are a waste of points.

PS: Being an oldschool sacred number freak, I felt being struck with OCD and so the Biker unit seems too large. But Papa Nurgle made me do it.

Yeh it's the killer not the killee that needs to be Nurgle to count for the tally.

Timing the arrival of Epidimius and Typhus' assault and the cultists being nearby is going to be a bit tricky. You've basically got to take your top guy and his band out of play. Add to that a 1 third chance that Epidimus won't turn up turn one and if he does his body guard won't be with him.

I'd also caution having only one "active" troop choice. With the Cultists being marked for extermination and the plague bearers baby sitting the fat bastard you only have one troop choice left.

I'll camp fatty and his gang near a "home" objective, making it 2 scoring units.

I thought about removing Typhus, and instead, in under 2000-pts games use a level 3 Sorcerer and an escort of 7 Plaguemarines instead, but I will have to remove upgrades from the other squads to make it all fit.

It would be like this:

HQ 155
Chaos Lord
Bike
Mark of Nurgle
Burning Brand
Sigil of Corruption

HQ 150
Chaos Sorcerer
Mark of Nurgle
Sigil of Corruption
Level 3

TROOPS 216
7 Plague Marines
2 Flamers
Rhino

TROOPS 178
7 Plague Marines
2 Flamers

FAST ATTACK 202
7 Bikes 150
Mark of Nurgle
2 Flamers

HEAVY SUPPORT 202
7 Havocs
Mark of Nurgle
1 Lascannon
1 Autocannon
2 Missle Launchers (2 flakk)

HEAVY SUPPORT 202
7 Havocs
Mark of Nurgle
1 Lascannon
1 Autocannon
2 Missle Launchers (2 flakk)

HEAVY SUPPORT 228
3 Obliterators
Mark of Nurgle

*ALLIES*

HQ 110
Epidemius

TROOPS 105
7 Plague Bearers

1748pts

I replaced the original list with this at the top of the post, so that people dont get confused


I don't know if it's worth, however.

Cultist-bomb-tally lists are so hit or miss. If epi doesnt show you're a sitting duck. As mentioned you're a tad light on troops. I'm also not wild about the mis-match of havoc weapons. 2 flak missiles/1 AC/1LC per squad is a little funky to work with as far as target priority as all 3 of those weapons generally have different targets. I'd recommend putting the flak ML's together and either go x4 LC or x4 AC not 2/2, that way you're not wasting shots per turn.

Also be wary of lists that have ways to get into your backfield with something nasty, epi with only 7 bodies to soak wounds won't last to torrent fire.

That makes it doubly bad for you tho'. Now instead of having to split the effort between gaining objectives and taking down the puss ball your opponent can afford to focus their schwerpunkt on Epidemius and if they take it down (and once you get to him Epidemius ain't that hard to take down), not only have you lost the major investment that puts your guys to a higher plane but you've lost an objective as well.

What I thought about the havocs, was the following:

1. Be able to threat AV 14s (2x krak, 1x las)

2. Add 2 Autocannon shots, and it's also good anti-transport (no need for 4xAC)

3. After tally hits the top, Frag Missles allow no armour saves. So we got 2 frag missles, plus 2 autocannon shots which allow no armour saves (the lascannon would allow no saves anyway due to AP2). This is respectable amount of anti-infantry firepower as well.

4. The flakk shots are mostly "complementary", in the sense that fliers are not the top priority of a tally list, at least for the first few turns. In synergy, however (ie an enemy flier that HAS to be destroyed), those 2 squads will shoot 4 flakk shots, and 6 autocannon/las shots, making 2.6 flakk hits, and 1 more hit from the autocannons/lascannons, 3-4 hits total.

Even a single unit will score 1.3 flakk hits, and 0.5 auto/las hits, roughly 2 hits, better than nothing.

So, the way they are kitted, they can deal with a variety of ground targets (good vs light vehicles, rudimentary vs fliers & heavy vehicles, good vs infantry after tally hits the top).

Everything in this list is designed to rack up kills, how is that a sitting duck? O.o

I replaced Typhus & the cultists with a Sorcerer and a Plaguemarine squad, comments on that please?

PS: I am going to edit the original post with the updated list

Typhus is a fair enough unit to include, as are the cultists.

I'd just not go down the road of doing anything other than hiding Epidemius and getting Typhus to kill things, rather than looking to pull off a bit of cheese.

Can you elaborate more on this? I am interested in your thinking.
