no problem with the Dread, but good question on the flamers.

are you fighting Nids?

TBH i wouldn't take the biker if you're no going to combine them. i'd take more Oblits.

good hunting.

Bikers don't seem very fluffy to me, but i may be wrong. If i were to change anything, i'd drop the bikers, maybe for a daemon prince of nurgle. MoN DP's are good, and would be quite fluffy, as you can get the nurgle model from GW.

i like the bike squad a lot better than before. I would suggest replacing the first squads Plasma guns with flamers or meltas.

i have to disagree
Plague marines get both an armor save and a FNP save against plasma shots, plus plasma guns can pop light vehicals and "Gib" anything that isnt another marine or an ork

its all about personal preference and if you were to use Plasma guns then PM would be the perfect cantadates but in my experence Melta and Flamer work well

ok first, to the Original list, i would have to combin the bike units into 1. use the points from the 2 extra melta's o upgrade the plague marines to melta units. or mix and match and make a plasma unit, a flamer unit and 2 melta units. keep the sorcerer and the oblits. change the defiler to have all the DCCW's it can take. then do the same with the Dreadnoughts.

as for svartmetalls list, i like it a bit better but 3 troops at 2k gets me a bit antsy. i'd have to drop the termies, and all icons to add in the fourth squad of plagues.

currently my 2k list looks something like this

Nurgle prince- rot, wings, mon

10 plagues- 2 melta, fist

10 plagues- 2 melta, fist

7 plagues- 2 melta, fist
rhino

7 plagues- 2 melta, fist
rhino

7 plagues- 2 melta, fist
rhino

Landraider

Landraider

but thats due to having to play agenst a ton of static gunline armies.... soon i'll be bringing typhus to the for front instead of the prince, as he'll wreak more havok vs those dastartly tau and guard armies.

7 PMs, 2x meltagun, and fist/power wep is one of the best troops choices in 40k!:biggrin:
