You cannnot have both an enchanted shield and dragonhelm on the same character as only one piece of magic armour is allowed.
Nurgle is one of the least points efficiency marks after Tzeentch and Khorne for characters and units but, if the rumors are true, that may change when the new book comes out in October most likely. Nurgle is best when facing a lot of BS shooting (hellblaster volley gun, repeater crossbows, crossbows, archers, blowpipes, slings, javelins, throwing weapons, and leadbelchers) and when the WS levles of the opposing units you are likely to face are either +1 greater than you units or when your WS is sufficiently greater than their units that lowering their WS by 1 causes them to suffer an effective -1 penalty to hit (for example, you WS 5 units against a WS 3 unit with MoN will cause the WS 3 unit to hit on 5+ instead of 4+). Otherwise, Nurgle can often be worthless. Note that it does not lower the WS of the opposing model when a Nurgle model is targetting the opposing model, so it can only potentially lower the possiblity of being hit but cannot improve your ability to hit in close combat with a Nurgle model. It is also best if you want to play Festus and the festering banner.
With nurgle, the banner of rage for unbreakable frenzy one unit and festering banner for another are good choices.
