Hi,
my list is ready and painted, 1250 Nurgle. Now i need some advices from more trained players than me :D

My list:

Battallion

Poxbringer
Prince Wings Talons

30 Plaguebearers
4x Nurglings
4x Nurglings

7 Drones

Battallion

Scrivener
Bilepiper

Nurglings
Nurglings (for the rest of the points)
Nurglings

Im not at home, so i cant remember exacly the list, but should be okay, maybe 1 more drone or something like that.

First: what do you think about the list? I played it 1 time against admech and the Nurglings were amazing. The bearers are to slow in my opinion...the prince + Drones were amazing too, combined with stratagems / psi.

Second: i need help to select the powers, which one on which character, then i struggle in deployment. Should i summon something or deepstrike? Prince with Drones oder alone? Bilepiper couldnt reach the nurglings cause of there special deployment etc.

Maybe someone can teach me the demon basics :D
Just 4 different type of units but so many possibilities...

i hope you can help me :)

(English isnt my first language, so dont judge me please :D)

I run huge blobs of Plaguebearers instead of Nurglings. The latter are good for objectives and tying up pathetic units in the enemy backfield but the Plaguebearers are incredibly dangerous with the right buffs applied. I run 90 with all the heralds. They're pretty fast with 7" movements, d6+1 advance and 2d6+1 charge. Use the Plague Banner and Virulent Blessing against big wound stuff. I also use the Feculent Gnarlmaw to try and get a turn one charge. The list excels against Imperial armies as it ties everything up in combat turn 1 or 2. It's not so great against armies with Fly though...

The list looks solid.

 

As Arufel said, PBs are amazing. I run 2x30 minimum most of the time. Nurglings, Drones and Prince keep the opponent busy until they reach target.

 

Regarding powers I would always go for Miasma and then maybe Fleshy Abundance or Virulent Blessing.

The scrivener helps with movement. He adds 2" to your plague bearers giving a total movement of 7 inches.

They can be surprisingly swift. Ironically plague bearers are with the correct support are as fast as daemonettes (scrivener), stronger and tougher and can advance AND charge (gnarlmaw)

They can even be 8" (faster than Daemonettes) with Epidemus.
