Hey guys, I just finished my Tyranids army and I am now looking onward to making an army of plague marines. I am looking for a good list that is very nurgley, and I am also wondering how you guys go about to making your chaos models to look like.. nurgle! If you have any tutorials/models of your own somewhere I would really like to see them. Also how exactly do you go about having nurgle-like rules? I've seen that plague marines have feel no pain, so how would this affect other types of units?

Hail,

For modelling tips and pointers regarding Plague Marines, you should make that post in the modelling section. For army lists, here we go:

HQ1- Daemon Prince, Mark of Nurgle, wings, Nurgle's rot(165)

HQ2- Daemon Prince, Mark of Nurgle, wings, Nurgle's rot(165)

Troop1- 7 Plague marines, Plague Champ, powerfist, 2x meltaguns, rhino(256)

Troop2- same as Troop1 (256)

Troop3- same as Troop1 (256)

Troop4- 7 Plague marines, Plague Champ, powerfist, 2x flamers, rhino(246)

HeavySupport1- 2 Obliterators (150)
1494 points.
The Obliterators are the only non-pure-Nurgle unit, but they do give great firepower.
If you are unable to make a 1500 point army, and would start at say 1000, just drop troops 3&4.

Good Luck and hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, what exactly do marks of .. do? I'm not asking for the rules or anything, but do they grant anything useful to someone who has it?

daemon prince mon wings warptime 175
7 plague marines 2 meltaguns champion power fist rhino 256
7 plague marines 2 meltaguns champion power fist rhino 256
7 plague marines 2 flamers champion power fist rhino 246
2 obliteraters 150

2 obliteraters 150

plague marines are some of the best troops in the game T5 feel no pain and blight grenades make them very hard to shift.

Hail,

Indeed they do grant useful things. Mark of Nurgle gives +1 toughness. There are other applications to certain units, but again, this is the army lists, ask that question regarding marks in the 'General 40k' section, for full debrief on what the various 'Icons & Marks' do...

Hail,

Actually, warptime isn't god specific(except can't work with Khorne), so maintain the MoN and warptime is still good. Four out of five Daemon Princes are considered psychers once a psychic power is purchased for the DP. On my previous list, just remove both Nurgle's Rot and give 1 DP warptime if that floats your boat. Many people on this Forum agree that warptime for a DP is very effective.

It'd be worth waiting for Svart to share his List with you, but otherwise Both the lists work fine!! :)

Marks of ... Do;

Mark Of Khorne - +1 Attack
Mark Of Nurgle - +1 Toughness
Mark Of Tzeentch - Invulnerable Save 5+ (And allows 2 Powers to be taken if your a pysker)
Mark Of Slaanesh - +1 Initiative

They also affect What Daemon Weapons are available to a Unit Equipped with one.

NOTE: I hope im not breaking rules posting that. No point costs, so i assume im ok!

You can really tell where you come into your own Svart... From a Khorne Thread where your abit shakey, to this full outburst of wretched Nurgle ^.^

Admirable, and Entertaining, Amazing Collection of Lists.

Tho, i don't like the Terminator Lord on the 3,000 point list. I think it'd be better with another Daemon Prince, or Maybe typhus in there somewhere.

Thanks for the lists Svart, I mostly play 1500 - 2000 so I might use those!

Question, why do plague marines always go in groups of 7?

You get 8 Noise Marines and 12 Khorne Berserkers in a box.

;) But yeah, you are right about the numbers.

Still awesome lists!
