Hi all,

 

With the impending release of my favourite Death Guard model, the Blight Hauler, I've whipped together a bit of a mixed list trying to make the most of the Daemon keyword on some of our units. The general idea is to use Nurglings as shields against alpha strike deployment shenanigans, Heralds & casters to buff the Daemon engines and for the Drones and Haulers to do the heavy lifting. The Palanquin Sorcerer is there purely to get access to Heretic Astartes powers.

 

Batallion (Chaos Daemons)

HQ Epidemius 100

HQ Herald of Nurgle 70

My main concern is that I might be lacking punch. Plagueburst Crawler or Predator are obvious candidates to fill this gap, but I don't own either and would rather not spend $100+ on something I need multiples of.

I'd try and get the Plaguebearers up to max size of 30. The -1 to hit above 20 models really helps their survivability. And put an Icon and Instrument on them!


(they only have leadership 7 but the icon means on a roll of a 1 for morale you get d6 back).

Which powers are you planning to take from Dark Hereticus?

It looks good to me anyway. Tough infantry, tough, fast and plentiful vehicles to split the enemy fire.

Few thoughts. With so many pox walkers you are shooting yourself in the foot by not taking Typhus. Switch the sorcerer for him. Next, the heavy blight launcher is statistically inferior in any shooting scenario to the plaugespitters. Or you can go full CC with the fleahmower but the heavy blight launcher is just bad.

I feel you are lacking heavy hitters. You have bodies galore, which is great, but you need some stuff to actually kill things either in shooting or CC. Demon princes, Morty, properly supported and kitted plauge Marines could all help.

It's disappointing but at the moment (pre-codex) the only good demon choices are heralds and nurglings. Death guard do everything else better so I'd swap the demons for more DG stuff.
