So I'm just now getting into Warhammer 40k, bought 2 squads of plague marines and can't wait to paint them. Still having alot of trouble though. I am trying to come up with effective lists for 500,750, and 1000 point armies. Right now as I read a squad of 7 PM costs 205 points without any additions. And i will soon buy a daemon prince of Nurlge for my HQ, so that should net me around 500. Where do I go from there? Some rhino's? A defiler?
Feel free to post any and all ideas.

well rhinos are good to add mobilty to your army but PM can take alot of damage.

also don't forget about the basic pred, also maybe a unit of termies and/or chosen.

also depends on if you wish to play "pure deathguard" or make up your own nurgle army.

um... isnt 7 PM without anything only 161 pts?

make sure you give the PM champs power fist (now this is more personal prefernce)

thats all for now if i think or more etc ill edit

Well i got 2 packs of plague marines and built them straight with what they came with (since it worked out right, didnt come with extra hands/swords/etc...) and if i look at what weapons they came with thats how i got to 205.

i suggest to include some serious long range tank killing power cause str8+ ap3- pie plates (leman russ, vvindicator, defiler...) will really annihilate plaque marines, so cconsider some oblits or some preds with lascannons
