This comes in just under 2k points. My thoughts are that while the enemy will be focusing on Morty the other heavy hitters in the list will be able to shoot and advance freely. The two bloat drones have enough ranged punch to be more than an irritant, the two helbrutes will be free to shoot anything and Typhus with the poxwalkers/PM just slowly march up the board. The Nurgle DP has the plate and will be side by side with Morty to help demolish whatever they can reach. I gave the DP wings to keep up with Morty.

 

Thoughts? I wanted to make a more all around list that lets you adapt to either hordes or high toughness lists.

I think it's about as solid as pure Death Guard can be. I think for competitive play you really need a CSM sorcerer for warp time though. I also like the power scourge over the Helbrute fist for the increased number of attacks.

Yes, I'd have to drop probably one helbrute to fit in CSM sorc for warp time for a tourney but I feel like this is still a good all around pure DG list.

I have been working on a very similar list to this:

 

HQs

 

Daemon Prince (same load out and powers)

Typhus (I added in Putrescent Vitality here to try S5 T5 poxwalker squad)

 

Troops

 

5 x PMs, Plasma on champ and 2 x Plasma

5 x PMs, Plasma on champ and 2 Blight Launchers

2 x 20 Poxwalkers

 

Elite

2 x standard Hellbrute with M.Melta and Fist (I only have these models, although I am converting a third with TL and Missile)

Noxious Blightbringer (to ensure everything gets extra movement)

 

Fast Attack

2 x Bloat drone with Plaguespitters

 

LOW

 

Mortarian

 

I believe this comes in at 1999.

Im still kind of new to the game. To get access to warptime..do you need the sorc in an separate Detachment? How would that look?
