Grandpapa nurgle has lured me in again... here goes:

GUO, ML3, exalted reward (eternal blade) 270
3x Beasts of Nurgle 156
3x Nurglings 45
3x Nurglings 45
3x Plague Drones, Icon, plaguebringer w greater etherblade 166
3x Plague Drones, Icon, plaguebringer w greater etherblade 166
Daemon Prince of Nurgle, wings, 3+, ML2, balesword 290
Soul Grinder of Nurgle, Phlegm 180
Soul Grinder of Nurgle, Phlegm 180
Total: 1498

The idea for this list is nurglings infiltrate onto objectives and just chill. If my opponent shoots them they're wasting their firepower by not killing the scary things. Beasts and Plague Drones zoom up turn 1 and bring in the GUO t2. I'm tempted to give the drones death heads, but the shooting seems kind of lackluster. The Daemon prince gets rid of giant enemy crabs for me, soul grinders grind souls. Fairly straight forward. I'm a little hesitant running the GUO without any greater rewards, but i'm not sure where I'd drop points to pay for that, or even if I want to consolidate even more points onto him. Obviously psychers just roll on biomancy.

Things I have to keep in mind for lists:
Anti high AV: Touch of rust, soul grinders CC, Iron arm
Anti low AV: Touch of rust, soul grinders CC + shooting, MCs
Anti horde: Soul grinders shooting, nurgle psychics
Anti teq: Plaguedrones, biomancy MCs (unless they're GK...), beasts as tarpit
Anti flyer: Daemon prince, soul grinders
Anti MC: Daemon prince, plague drones if not s10, GUO
Taking Objectives: Nurglings, GUO, basically most things... Drones for maelstrom missions as well
Removing 2+ cover campers: idk, hit them in CC with basically anything? that and stream of corruption if need be

Hopefully this has made some sense. Tell me what you think!

So I've made some changes....

* GUO, ML3, 2x greater 280
* 10x Plaguebearers, icon, instrument, plagueridden 115
* 10x Plaguebearers, icon, instrument, plagueridden 115
* 3x Nurglings 45
* 3x Plague Drones, Icon, plaguebringer w lesser etherblade 156
* 3x Plague Drones, Icon, plaguebringer w lesser etherblade 156
* Daemon Prince of Nurgle, wings, 3+, ML2, balesword 290
* Soul Grinder of Nurgle, Baleful Torrent 170
* Soul Grinder of Nurgle, Phlegm 180
* Total: 1497

The idea is I'll have the drones, Daemon Prince and phlegm grinder on the field, and everything else in reserve. T1 I zoom up with drones and prince, chill out of LoS, and prep for a turn 2 charge. Turn 2, the plaguebearers come in and instrument the GUO and Baleful torrent grinder. Drones will tie up anything that might be able to hurt the GUO (kroot snipers for instance) or other priority targets. This turn I'll drop down a bunch of temples via nurgle primaris and the soul grinder to try to get rid of any markerlights and snipers. I face tau on a regular enough basis that I need to be able to get rid of those, as my army relies on cover and high toughness to survive. T3 everything else joins the fun. I'd like to try to get a nurgling squad in here to camp a backfield objective out of LoS, but I'm not sure where I'd drop the points.

Any thoughts?
