This is what i have so far

HQ
Typhus
Daemon Prince, mark of Tzeetch, winged (not sure what powers to give)

Troops
7 plague marines w/ champion pw
10 csm w/ champion pw, heavy bolter (probably going to end up removing whole squad when i get more plague marines)
12 zeerkers w champion pw

my overall plan for the army is to use the plague marines to absorb the hits till my HQ and zeerkers can get in there and stop some face.

Taking too 2000 points, I'd drop 4 zerkers and give them a rhino with EA!
If you're intent on keeping typhus you would prob be wise to invest in some bodyguard for him!Instant death is not in the least bit amusing! (forgeworld do some awesome termie conv kits) Either pop them in a land raider or deep strike them, you wont want to foot slog them!
PM's could do with a couple of plasma weapons in there and the champ would be better suited with a PF again a rhino wouldn't go amiss
HB in the vanilla squad should go, again double special weapon would be best here and again PF for champ would again be useful!
You could do with some heavy support, Oblts, vindies or defilers are your shout there! If your gonna take vindies take two, I have never used defilers myself so I wouuldn't know but the word on the street is run more than one, dccw it up and drop some pie plates! Happy days! Again oblits I run in squads of no more than two buts thats my preference some people prefer 3! Finally you will might want to squeeze another troops choice in there but it depends if you have the points spare!
Hope that is of some help!

Thanks, yeah i was planning on picking up some termies to keep typhus alive longer. The rhino idea with the zekers is a good idea, probably going to run 3 10 man squads of PM with fists. What are your opinions on a small nurgle marked bikers as a tank hunter squad or would the oblits do the same?

if you're going to go Nurgle and Khorne the fluffiest HQ options you could take are Typhus and Kharne, but IMO, at 2K that may be too many points in HQs where you would need things like retinues (termies for Typhus, for example) and Troop choices.

i'd develop an idea on your Troops first after you figure out how you want to focus.

good hunting.
