Interesting list, we dont see list like that often.

You do not have a Daemon Prince, they are the allstar of chaos, your list would benefit greatly from one.
With that quantity of poxwalkers, switching a plaguecaster for Typhus could be interesting.
There is lots of upgrade for the marine and the blightlords. I personally would go with the minimum upgrade route, and invest in more body.
A single rhino would be a big help for protecting and deployment of all those characters.
Bloat drones are also a staple of death guard, I never leave home withouth a few.

I like these lists. 

The rhino in the first list is nice to get these Plague caster in Fallout range, otherwise they probably wont get to use it.

The second list is essentially the same with less poxwalkers for a drone, I would take it, Poxwalkers are not that great.

 

Its very close to the generic idea of a good DeathGuard list. Play with it a bit and you will see what you like and what works for you.

If you find the BlightBringer does not perform as expected, try the Biologus or the Blightspawn.

If you go with +/- 40 Poxwalker, try to include Typhus instead of a PlagueCaster.

 

 

If you want some flavor (but maybe not the most competitive of choices), I am personally a big fan of the 7- melee plague marine + biologus + rhino combo, add in a Plague caster and blight-spawn for extra punch. 

I also use bare 5 man Plague marine as objective holders when I can afford the point. it has worked well for me so far, but the price is really steep. 

 

 

Dont forget to tell us what you choose and how it performed!
