For a little bit of background. I just started getting into the hobby again after a couple years away. I missed about 95% of 7th edition and started looking at gaming with friends again recently. I'm not a tournament level player, but I still want something that'll at least give a good show.

Primarily a slogging list, grab what you can and hold onto it is the plan. Maybe it's me, I just don't like how rhinos look now, being 2x as expensive as they were. Does the durability justify all that for them? This is what I have as an idea now at least.

Plague marines should take "shooty" special weapons(e.g. Plasmagun, Blightlauncher). They won't go into melee fight soon, and once they fight, a 5-men unit(or already lost 2-3 men in shooting phase) are not awesome.

You can drop the Tallyman for the same reason. Take a Dark Apostle and 9 Zerkers in a Rhino would be effective, because that is a very active strategy, hurrying to fight. Once contact with enemies, Dark Apostle could easily earn his cost back, for providing rerolls to 40-50 swings, per unit per turn. DG cannot copy that.

Thus save the points for upgrading your characters. Necrosius is far more better than a anoymous Sorcerer/Plaguecaster, for only 120pts. Typhus is solid and increase the efficiency of your 3 poxwalker units. After the patch version 1.3, taking poxwalkers alone(without Typhus) is not cost effective for 6pts each.

Such adjustment could improve your list, without significantly change the constitution of your army. I won't say "drop all your Plague marines, they are not competitive in 8th", maybe that is true, but not the suggestion you need.

Thanks for the thoughts, I'll consider this and re-tackle the idea. I would like to keep it semi-fluffy and pure DG where I can. I'll draft up something using both Typhus and Necrosius, simply because if I wanna run that many poxwalkers I may as well use something that buffs 70% of the models I am using. I'll do some more tinkering and fuss around until I find something I may like more. Thanks, again.
