Hello all

 

I'm trying to put together a 500pts starter list for Death Guard I came up with the idea of Plagueburst Crawler chundering up the middle of the board with the Plaguecaster and Plaguemarines close behind followed by a swarm of Poxwalkers. The idea being that the Plaguemarines and Plagueburst Crawler provide the punch and if anyone gets to close buff the Poxwalkers with Blades of Putrefaction and swarm them?

 

I'm open to suggestions on improving this?

Poxwalkers will have hard time keeping up with the PBC.

PBC is brutal in durance and those spitters are great. Your list also feels fluffy.

I've had only couple games at 500 point death guard.

I like to spam stratagems.. My list was less fluffy.. But I ran:

Batallion (+3cp)

Chaos Lord > suppurating plate > balesword > revolting resiliency
Malignant plaguecaster > miasma of pestilence > putrescent vitality

10x poxwalkers
10x poxwalkers
5x plague marines > 2x blight launcher > 1x plasma gun

FWIW,  I like it.  Well balanced and fluffy as Fobzter says.

Here's another idea I had...

Poxwalkers act as a moving screen buffed with Miasma of Pestilence, followed by plague marines who advance up behind them with the DP in middle, they take shots at what they can - the noxious blightbringer helps them all move a little faster and once they get within striking distance the DP launches out and starts eating puny mortal souls.

I think that looks pretty flexible for 500 points.

After my initial post I was about to share my new idea too, so it's here:

DP of Nurgle, wings, suppurating plate, 4+ DR

10x poxwalker (deployment phase screen for DP)

PBC, plaguespitters

5man PM, 2x BL, plasma & plaguesword on champ

499p

But, yeah. Keep it fluffy 😀
