Hi guys - I could use some input on my list that I've been messing with: 

 

HQ:

Typhus: 175 pts

 

Daemon Prince w/ wings 170 pts
Malefic Talons set 10 pts

Elite:

 

5 x Blight Lord Terminators 38 x 5
Blightlauncher: 15 pts
3 x Combi Plas: 45 pts
4 x Balesword/Bubotic axe 20 pts
Flail of Corruption 10 pts
277 pts

 

Lobhor the Undying
Hellforged Contemptor 116 pts
Deathclaw 40 pts
Butcher Cannon 45 pts
Combibolter 2 pts
203 pts

 

Tugral the Unsane
Helbrute 72 pts
Power Scourge 43 pts
Power fist 40 pts
155 pts

Troops:

 

7 x Plague Marines  133 pts
3 x plasma gun  39 pts
1 x Power fist 12 pts
184 pts

 

7 x Plague Marines  133 pts
3 x plasma gun  39 pts
1 x Power fist 12 pts
184 pts

 

7 x Plague Marines  133 pts
2 x Blight Launcher  28 pts
1 x Power fist 12 pts
173 pts

 

Fast:

 

Foetid Bloat Drone 99 pts
Flesh Mower/Plague Probe: 12/25 pts
136 pts.

 

Foetid Bloat Drone 99 pts
Plaguespitters/Plague Probe: 34/25 pts
158 pts.

Heavy:

 

Defiler  152 pts
Defiler Scourge 12 pts
Reaper auto cannon  15 pts
179 pts

 

 

I already have some of the stuff - DP conversion, Defiler conversion, Plaguespitter Bloat Drone, the Contemptor conversion and a Helbrute conversion (I do love me some Daemon Engines smile.png ) I also have a Decimator Conversion with Soul Burner petards (150 pts), which I'm thinking I could switch out the Helbrute with, if I feel like it. 

 

 

I'm not particularly competitive-minded, but I'd like an army where I don't just remove my own models - a moderate amount of bite. Any and all suggestions are welcome, both regarding the load out and the units. I'm not hellbound on the units I already have, but I do like the models. smile.png

 

 

For those interested, my WIP thread is here: http://www.bolterand...t/#entry4818479

Typhus without Poxwalkers seems a waste to me. That's a big part of why you bring him over a (cheaper) Lord of Contagion. Speaking of which, I think your Plague Marines do need a screen of some sort; Cultists, Poxwalkers, even Blight-haulers. I feel like anti-armour is going to be the main problem here, as well as the lack of support your Plague Marines have.

I have to respectfully disagree with Lord Marshal in regards to Typhus,

 

Yes, he  is great with Pox Walkers, but I think he is still very much worth his points even by himself.

 

Besides buffing Pox Walkers, he's also a Phsycher and he has a pretty awesome pistol attack as well.   I am assuming GR is planning on Deep Striking Typhus with his Blightlords, not only does he give them the great CC backup a Lord of Contagion does, but he can also provide them Phsychic support (I immediately think of Dark Miasma)

Thanks for the replies. :) 

 

@ Checkmate - that was exactly my plan. Typhus seems like a great all-round-beatstick, and a psyker to boot, and he's supposed to be right in on the action. The two dreads are lumbering forward along with the plague marines, while the Bloat Drones make a flank attack. The Defiler is just cool, and can function either as a beatstick, firesupport or a distraction-carnifex, being annoyingly hard to kill. The DP is a multi-tool box. 

 

What do you suggest for anti armour, Lord Marshal?

I'd switch the contemptor for a hellbrute (las and missiles) and with the extra points give all your terminators combi plasma.

@GuitaRasmus.  Great minds think alike, I have a similar set up that I want to try out: 6xBlightLords (4xCombiPlasma, Reaper AC, and Flail / all with Bubonic Axes) + Typhus in support. 

 

Please post if you have a chance to use them, I'd love to see how this unit performs

I'm sorry to say but despite looking cool the reaper autocannon really blows. I would put another combi in instead.
