|MidnightSun||Unless you play lots of Marines, I really don't think the Nurgle Prince is all he's cracked up to be - sure, Shrouded is probably the best bonus, but not being able to Sweeping Advance in combat is a huge deal. Princes are pretty tiny models, considering that you can't draw LoS to wings/horns/weapons, so you can usually slot a Prince in behind LoS blocking terrain without too much issue negating a lot of firepower - the rest they can tank on their reasonable if not fantastic T5 3+ W4 Jinking defences. In this list, it's theme, so keep it I guess but in general terms I find Slaanesh to be the far better Prince (especially for a CD DP - Lash of Slaanesh all day every day!)|

I may invest in some beast of nurgle and more drones. They're fast and tough. Maybe not as killy as others, but the speed and toughness should offset the crummy plaguebearers.

If I turn one of the DPs into a daemon list one, woint it lose its toughness 6? If not, then I'm cool moving it over no problem.
I like having the two drakes because with their lack of mobility now, the second one can hit what the first one misses.
I've been thinking of getting rid of that Burning brand too, mostly because I'm always Jinking anyways. Can really only use it for overwatch and 1st turn before jink. So mace it is
I have a really cool GUO I made and I've been looking for an excuse to bring it back.
I've had the drone star used on me before, and liked how resilient it was. I only have 3 drones right now, but I've been thinking of getting more

I can speak for the CSM part: nurgle to me is paramount to build melee tarpits and hihg priority target that CAN withstand lots of firepower.
Nurgle Spawns to kill and tarpit turn 2
FLying Nurgle DP for that sexy 2+ cover when jinking to help the spawns turn 2
Shooty death guard (min sized) in rhinos to support before spawn+prince charge and take objectives
So my suggestion is: drop the drakes and get spawns. Princes should be melee monsters never to zoom, just glide (unless useful, of course). drop the brand and take the black mace. death a palooza.
daemons part sounds fine to me.
a unit of plaguebearer is just, to me, a more resilient cultist unit. not really useful beside holding an objective.

Yeah, unless the enemy list has absolutely no templates or blasts, DSing plaguebearers is generally a poor idea. *sigh* There's S&P for you. I don't think Plaguebearers can cut it, as nice as touch of rust+poisoned 4+ sounds.
That list generally has some solid hitters, though I would try to bring the 2nd CSM DP over and turn it into a CD DP, for all that it loses out on defensive grenades between differences to "Daemon of Nurgle" between the books, to load up it and the other CD DP with Greater Rewards--those add a bunch to survivability, and are well worth taking two of each, I say. (perhaps leave the 2nd DP in CSM if you take the Nurgle Herald in my later suggestions)
Might drop a Heldrake, given the very tightly restricted firing arc it has these days.
One solid unit I'm not seeing here is the Dronestar: 9-odd Plague Drones who conga-line a Fertility Herald of Nurgle out behind themselves, and run the Instant Death stings. Able to take on just about everything barring heavy walkers and durable as all hell.
Honestly dunno how Beasts of Nurgle play--they look decent on paper, just fall behind the Plague Drone enough not to be worth taking.
If you want something more to DS in, I might consider a GUO. Sure, you already have 3 HS choices, so it would limit your winged DPs, but it would be a hard-hitter that doesn't need to spread out like Plaguebearers would.
