Pretty typical:

Epidemius
Ku' Gath

10 plague bearers
7 plague bearers - icon
7 plague bearers

Prince - MoN, iron hide, mon, flight, breath, aura of decay
Prince - MoN, iron hide, mon, flight, breath, cloud of flies
Prince - MoN, iron hide, mon, flight, gaze
1500

Wave 1: Epidemius w/ 10 plaguebearers
Ku' Gath
Prince w/ breath
Prince w/ breath

Wave 2: 7 plaguebearers w/ icon
7 plaguebearers
Prince w/ gaze

How do I make this competitive?

Gaze seems like a much better Tally collector then Breath to me, simply because you can use it turn 1.
Naturally you can use breath turn 1 too, but it will require suicidal Deep Striking positions which sounds expensive with those DPs...

Another question is if its really worth having Flight on all 3 DPs. Its expensive as fuck, so maybe drop it from 1-2 of them and get something juicier for the points?

*edit: you have MoN stated twice on each DP, is that supposed to be something else?*

wouldn't he struggle against skimmers/tanks otherwise? particualrly given the rest of the list is S&P.

my question is if there is enough AT (eg. AV 14). if you cant stop the LR from moving (which you probly won't as you can't shoot much) then hitting on a 4+ and rolling 9 or 10 or 2D6 is still quite hard at S5.

Am I wrong in saying that B.o.C is the only thing in a nurgle army that can damage a monolith?

Point here is that one can run 2 DPs with Flight and 1 without. Or one could skip 1 DP and put in a tongue SG instead which also solves (in theory) the Monolith/Land Raider detail.


If you run pure (pun intended) Nurgle then yea only Breath can damage the Monolith. Aka its not worth trying to kill it. Breath the Necrons instead :p

I'm gad someone posted my list above so I didn't need to once again dig out out myself ;)

The above is the most effective Tally list by far. Gaze gives you turn 1 ability to cause wounds and combined with Ku'Gath's pie-plate you can quickly rack the tally up. Flying Prince also means you can engage the enemy turn 2 and that way ensure that by the time the rest of your army arrives you are beyond 10 kills (giving the other 2 princes Noxious touch).
