if you don't want to be footslogging but look cool and arrive on the enemy, go terminator armour. Terminator lord, power sword/mace (depending on meta)+ power axe, meltabombs, 140 pts of nastyness, plus 3 terminators with combiplasma/melta/flamer depending on meta.
deepstrike and praise the dark gods.

|Mossy Toes||Palanquin is workable--but again, it leaves you as slow as as Infantry, and if you want to spend points on decent weapons and stacking other defensive buffs (like a Sigil or CS Daemonheart)... well, you're right up there in the "as expensive as Typhus" points bracket.|

I agree, Typhus is great, but way to expensive for a 1000pt army. I would take him in bigger games but not at this level.
I might play around with the spawn idea. How about a palanquin instead of a bike?

Save a few points and that's it, really--Manreaper is great, Typhus's statline is great, his psychic powers are great... you just have to beware S10 ID around him. I'd rather have Typhus than a fisticlaws Termi Lord then bring some zombies to boot.
If you don't like the thought of Nurgle Bikes, you can also go Nurgle Spawn led by only the Bikerlord--1 bike in the army (possibly converted nurgle-beasty instead of a bike, too) isn't too bad.

Thanks for the feedback.
Yea, its hard to resist the urge to field everything as sevens
I really hate the new (well not so new now) war machine things. They're just really ugly and i have no interest in buying them.
I am however thinking of getting rid of the bikes too, i know they are good but i just dont feel bikes would suit a nurgle army, i mean plague marines arnt really supposed to use rhinos.
Is there a way of running a foot slogging lord other then just keeping him cheap?
I was thinking of converting one of those big fly things from fantasy as a helldrake.

totally viable list, i'd just use 5 man strong plague marines units to field some spawns for the lulz. nothing to criticize much. the lone demolisher would be better at becoming a maulerfiend, but hey...
Also, powerlances are jut bad, better served with a power maul.

Just thought I would put up my attempt at a 1000pts Nurgle list.
Thanks for looking and i would appreciate any comments or criticisms.
