I have recently converted to nurgle and want to make a fluffy 1500pt list of death guard. Any ideas on what to get? I want it to be a list that I can use to face any army with decent effectivness so it needs a balance of anti tank anti MC and anti infantry.

Ermmmm, Annoyingly if your going mad-fluffy, it kind of restricts mech... and alot of HS.

Mortarion is a bit of a sore-loser when it comes to anything but infantry.
- But i'm sure you'll get away with some transports :p

Try making a list like;

Typhus and 4 Terminators in a Land Raider
Lots of Plague Marines
Obliterators - Needed anti-tank
Chosen - with meltas for the NEEDED anti-tank
Havocs - can take meltas/lascannons/missile-launchers

But your best bet is Svartmetall!! He's a #1 Nurgler!!! Check him out:)

Hope this helps!

"I have recently converted to Nurgle..."
Welcome aboard :)
Here's a nice 1,500-pointer; I've won with this list myself and I suck, so if I can win with it anyone can:

HQ
• Daemon Prince of Nurgle
- Mark of Nurgle, Wings, Warptime
175 points

ELITES
• 7 Plague Terminators
- heavy flamer and chainfist; 4 combi-meltas
250 points

TROOPS
• 7 Plague Marines
- Champion with power fist & Personal Icon, 2 plasma guns, Rhino
271 points
• 7 Plague Marines - Champion with power fist, 2 meltas, Rhino
256 points
• 7 Plague Marines - Champion with power fist, 2 flamers, Rhino
246 points

HEAVY SUPPORT
• 2 Obliterators

150 points
• 2 Obliterators
150 points

TOTAL:
1,498 points



I'm currently working on a Nurgle Obliterator conversion and will be producing a tutorial on how to make your own in the process, so watch this space on the heavy-support front. And - just for shits and giggles - here's a truly fluffy 3000-point infantry-centred list:

HQ
• Daemon Prince of Nurgl
e - Mark of Nurgle, Wings, Warptime
175 points
• Terminator Lord - Terminator armour, Mark of Nurgle, paired lightning claws
150 points

ELITES
• 7 Plague Terminators
- Reaper autocannon and chainfist; 4 combi-meltas
270 points
• 7 Plague Terminators - heavy flamer and powerfist; 4 combi-meltas
245 points
• 7 Plague Terminators - heavy flamer and powerfist; 4 combi-meltas
245 points

TROOPS
• 7 Plague Marines
- Champion with power fist, 2 meltas, Rhino
256 points
• 7 Plague Marines - Champion with power fist, 2 meltas, Rhino
256 points
• 7 Plague Marines - Champion with power fist, 2 meltas, Rhino
256 points
• 7 Plague Marines - Champion with power fist, 2 flamers, Rhino
246 points
• 7 Plague Marines - Champion with power fist, 2 flamers, Rhino
246 points

HEAVY SUPPORT
• 3 Obliterators

225 points
• 3 Obliterators
225 points
• 7 Havocs - 4 missile launchers
185 Points

TOTAL:
3,000 points

You could probably re-jig this to include Typhus if you're dead set on having him in your army, but either way it's perfect for that 'horde of Nurgle' look :biggrin:

This is why i reccommended him :D I hope to be aswell known-and-read for khorne as you are nurgle sir. +rep for being an inspiration :)

Inquisitor got it bang on the head, you are loveable, yet despicable.

BTW: In the 3,000: Can you have the 5 troops? I'm really un-read about apocalypse ^.^

I literally am sat here like, :|

Your lists are just perfect... The use of numbers (7), the Tactics.. Only thing your missing is some Plasma!! But i'm sure nurgle will let you off, you are pretty loyal ^^

EDIT: Sorry svart, i apparently need to stop giving you rep, and spread it around some-more before i can +rep you again! lmao :)

Awesome list Svartmetall!!!:grin: (+rep)
As for boosting it to apoc size, I am currently building a Nurgle Plague Tower for my csm and that would make an awesome centre piece for a death guard army.:so_happy:

I wasn't saying don't use the list :) This list is just as un-fluffy :p Death guard don't really use Mech.
SO out of the 2 recent ones, i'd use the vinidcator list, But i still think Svart's is best! :p

decent list, and i'd still consider it fluffy. use of Dreadnoughts doesn't make the list unfluffy, IMO.

though i would recommend dropping one Dread and changing two LC's to ML in the Havok squads to get rhinos.

Svart's list is pretty mean, but this isn't shabby either.

good hunting.

Have you even read the Death Guard fluff?! they love dreads:crazy:! So apart from that i didn't put any other vehicles in. Do you think i'd ask for a fluffy fun list and then don't put one up?:laugh:
