Hello People,

Relatively New DG Player here.

I m building a humble army of Death Guard. Ill be playing 1500pts against Nids soon and Opponent love Monsters Creatures...

So im probably going against Carnifexes. Toxicrines,  Trygons, Mawloc and maybe some Tyrant Variants and filled with Genestealer Cult.

 

I've seen those Bugs shred many armies and the Trifecta of Carnifexes are terrifying.

 

So any help to deal with such  army is appreciated.

 

I have these units ATM.

 

1     Chaos Lord

1     Daemon Prince

2    Lord of Contagion

2    Malignant Plague Casters

2    Noxius Blightbringers

5    Blightlord Terminators 

20 Plague Marines (2 Plasmas and 2 Blight Launchers)

20 Chaos Cultist

40 Pox Walkers

5    Possessed

3    Foetid Bloat Drones

1     Chaos Land Rider

2    Plagueburst Crawlers

2    Rhinos

 

Thank you in advance, Nurgle Bless thee.

If you’re tailoring a list for Nids I really think an often overlooked choice is the Foul Blightspawn.

I know you don’t have one but he’s easy to proxy.

To me he’s ideal in most situations. His mega flamer is ideal for ripping Carnies and the the like of. Also he’ll only allow them to activate one charge if you use his ability right.

Anyway without knowing the opponent’s list I’d first make sure you have deep strikers or those Plagueburst Crawlers in the list to take care of Hive Guard which are incredibly good. Bloat Drones seem like a natural for this and The Dead Walk strat could be amazing against certain Nid armies.

I played against nids this weekend and I had 3 psychers, I really wish I had a 4th. The amount of smite he put out was ridiculous and ultimately decided the game.
