actually with this type of army, they are just as vulnerable to instant death as their less rotten brethren, it is in the small arms arena that their survivability comes into its own. T4(5) granted by the mark of nurgle makes it that bit harder for a bolter to kill a follower of papa nurgle whilst with true Plague Marines, Feel No Pain means that it's 'second chance sunday' against kills by small arms!Das Boogie Man said:Next goes to Plague Marine themed armies, the high toughness means that only a handful of weapons in the game can actually Insta-kill them while ordinary weapons have a real tough time punching through his Toughness+his armour save
the new rules for chaos have kind of dumbed down nurgle, they still get some good things though like blight grenades and the added toughness but they still get squashed by strength 8 weapons.connerz said:i was actually hoping someone would say the plauge marines. i like the fluff ive read about them. nurgle is fun for me i guess.
anyone know someplace i can go for tips and more fluff on building a nurgle force?
or just general tips. im still really new to all of this i dont even know the basic rules of the game yet.
