Here at last is the complete collection of my Death Guard army lists to date; much like the Black Legion Compendium, this features Father Nurgle's finest in some straightforward general-purpose lists and then some more specialised 'theme' lists. Not all of these are necessarily the last word in min-maxed optimisation, but aimed more at fluff and thematic fun; but as I said with the BL lists - "hey, it’s just a game after all".

So let's get the bilious ball rolling with some general-purpose Death Guard lists...
