So, I’m new to Death Guard, but I wanted to make an army after I got the Dark Imperium box. So I made this 1750 list based around Typhus & Poxwalker hordes.

Battalion Detachment:
HQ:
Typhus - Warlord
w/Miasma of Pestilence & Blades of Putrefaction

Malignant Plague Caster w/The Suppurating Plate
w/Miasma of Pestilence & Putrescent Vitality

TROOPS:
7 Plague Marines w/2 plasma guns & power fist
7 Plague Marines w/plasma gun, plasma pistol, & power fist

20 poxwalkers
20 poxwalkers

ELITES:
Noxious Blightbringer

Outrider Detachment:
HQ:
Malignant Plaguecaster
w/Miasma of Pestilence & Putrescent Vitality

FAST ATTACK:
Foetid Bloat-drone w/2 plaguespitters
Feotid Bloat-drone w/2 plaguespitters

3 Myphitic Blight-haulers

The Plaguecasters, Typhus, & the Noxious Blightbringer help the core of the army weather shooting and Advanvancing faster to make their way up the table and into the opposing force. The Plague Marines march up to take objectives and protect the core army’s flanks, while the Drones harasses enemy infantry and the Blight-haulers deal with armor.

I want to expand this force to 2000 points, but I’m not sure what to add. One option I’ve considered is dropping a few things and adding a Supreme Command Detachment with 3 Plaguecasters for throwing Mortal Wounds left and right, but I’m not sure if that’s viable. Any help would be appreciated :)

Added a unit of Blightlord Terminators with 3 bubonic axes, 1 balesword, 1 flail of corruption, 3 combi-bolters, 1 blight launcher, & 1 combi-plasma for 250 points.

If I ever expand out to 2500 points of Death Guard, I’ll add a Renegade Knight equipped with the Gatling cannon, the thermal cannon, & a heavy stubber. Make all Nurgly to fit the army despite it being an allied SHA detachment.

3 more plaguecasters is a realy bad idea... You allready have 2 plaguecasters + Typhus wich is far enough psykers.
I believe it would be better to replace one of your Plaguecaster with a Nurgle Daemon Prince, and btw give him the Suppurating Plate ! It's a waste to give it to a Plaguecaster wich isn't tanky enough to go fight in melee.
If your army is based around Pox, you may want to add (or replace one of your plaguecaster for) "Necrosius the Undying". Just for fun your futur Knight may be from "The Tainted" chapter to have reroll 1 in melee if he is 6" around Necrosius. :P
Adding somes Cultists to convert them into Poxwalkers with "The Deads Walk Again" could be a good idea too.

Thanks! Wasn’t sure if I should add a Daemon Prince at some point or replace a Plaguecaster with one. What book is Necrosius the Undying in? Can’t find him in the codex. Yeah, I was planning on adding Cultists to this army eventually.

A Chaos Lord is a good choice too, keep him near your haulers/PM's for the rerolls. And with the new beta rules for smite (adding +1 for each subsequent cast), you might grab the Pandemic Staff relic also.
Foul Blightspawn is a beast, I'm going to pick up a second for my list.

Necrosius is a Forge World HQ, he is in the «Imperial Armour: Chaos» book.
(But you can find his datasheet on the net easy. Just google it at check pictures)

Should I always take the Daemon Prince with Wings if I take a Daemon Prince?

So this is my 2000 point list so far (based off what I own right now):

Battalion Detachment:
HQ:
Typhus - Warlord
w/Miasma of Pestilence & Blades of Putrefaction

Malignant Plague Caster w/The Suppurating Plate
w/Miasma of Pestilence & Putrescent Vitality

TROOPS:
7 Plague Marines w/2 plasma guns & power fist
7 Plague Marines w/plasma gun, plasma pistol, & power fist

20 poxwalkers

ELITES:
Noxious Blightbringer

5 Blightlord Terminators w/1 Balesword, 3 Bubotic Axes, 1 Flail of Corruption, 2 Combi-bolters, 1 Combi-plasma, & 1 Blight Launcher

Outrider Detachment:
HQ:
Malignant Plaguecaster
w/Miasma of Pestilence & Putrescent Vitality

FAST ATTACK:
Foetid Bloat-drone w/2 plaguespitters
Feotid Bloat-drone w/2 plaguespitters

3 Myphitic Blight-haulers

Played a game with this list, and crushed my opponent (wasn’t using Strategems because my opponent’s army was Index Drukhari). Also most of my friends I play against don’t have Codex armies, so I never use my Strategems against them. Although after hearing feedback about this list, here’s the Altered version I’m gonna aim for, eventually:

Battalion Detachment:
HQ:
Typhus - Warlord
w/Miasma of Pestilence & Blades of Putrefaction

Malignant Plague Caster w/The Suppurating Plate
w/Miasma of Pestilence & Putrescent Vitality

TROOPS:
7 Plague Marines w/2 plasma guns, plague sword, & power fist
7 Plague Marines w/plasma gun, plasma pistol, plague sword, & power fist

20 poxwalkers
20 Chaos Cultists w/Autoguns

ELITES:
Noxious Blightbringer
Foul Blightspawn

HEAVY SUPPORT:
Plagueburst Crawler w/Plagueburst Mortar, 2 Plaguespitters, & a Heavy Slugger

Outrider Detachment:
HQ:
Daemon Prince of Nurgle w/Wings, 2 Malefic Talons, & the Suppurating Plate
w/Miasma of Pestilence

FAST ATTACK:
Foetid Bloat-drone w/2 plaguespitters
Feotid Bloat-drone w/2 plaguespitters

3 Myphitic Blight-haulers
