Going to a 2000 pt doubles tournament this weekend. My partner will be playing Space Marines but I haven't talked to him too much since we decided to be partners. I know that he'll be using Tornadoes, Typhoons, and shooty dreadnoughts. All very high str and long range.

Since he's taking up most/all of the elite/fast attack I was going to do the HS. So far I've narrowed down what I want to use into basically two categories. Either load up on the points invested in MCs and tone down the troops or go easy with the MCs and get a more substantial troop force

HQ: GUO or KOS

HS: 3x Nurgle DP with or without wings

(Depending on what I take for the HQ and HS I'll have somewhere between 140 and 380 points left.)
Troops: Daemonettes (If more points are available) or Plaguebearers (If the opposite is true). I'm a bit against horrors atm since he's going to have so much shooting.

Any thoughts?

if you decide to be the objective holder then stick with the GUO, nurgle DPs with wings, and plaguebearers. nurgle units are a giant pain to take off objectives.

Luckily we got to test it yesterday before the tourny. I was using a KOS, 3 Nurgle winged DPs, and a unit of PBs. We got destroyed pretty bad vs two swarm armies. I need a higher model count :/
