Hey,

I am hoping for advice on the following list:

 

 

HQ

Daemon Prince

  - Wings

  - 2x Malefic Talons

 

Plague Caster

  - Corrupted Staff

 

 

Troops

7 Plague Marines

 - 3 Plasma Guns

 - Plague Sword

 

7 Plague Marines

  - 3 Plasma Guns

  - Plague Sword

 

16 Poxwalkers

 

 

Elites

Hellbrute

  - Twin Heavy Bolter

  - Power Scourge

 

 

Transports

Rhino

  - Combi Bolter

  - Havok Launcher

 

Rhino

  - Combi Bolter

  - Havok Launcher

 

Fast Attack

Blight Drone

  - 2x Spitters

  - Plague Probe

 

Blight Drone

  - 2x Spitters

  - Plague Probe

 

 

Heavy Support

Plague Hulk of Nurgle

  - Warpsword

 

Plagueburster

  - 2 x Entropy Cannons

  - Heavy Slugger

 

Plagueburster

  - 2x Entropy Cannons

  - Heavy Slugger

 

 

Daemon price will be the warlord and take arch contaminator

This will give the plaguebursters re-roll to wound in the early game, and then with the DPs mobility he will move to help the drones

 

I took plague marines because they are cool, however I am tempted to drop the plasma guns on them and give them double knifes, and take the better grenade dude for each unit.

 

Poxwalkers are just bodies to protect the characters.

 

 

With the Plaguebursters, Plague Hulk and Blight Drones, there is just so much toughness, invuns, and DG that they will be hard to take down

Even the plague marines in rhinos will be hard to shift

My 2 cents:
To me, 2 blight launchers are better then plasma (& cheaper). Assault 2 lets you advance and get 4 shots off. Bonus - if your DP is near, you're rerolling all wounds instead of just 1's.
Suppurating Plate instead of Corrupted Staff. Well, unless you are going to be spamming smite.

Agree. Plate is the best and only Relic choice for Nurgle in competitive stage.

Plague hulk doesn’t have legion keyword so you’d lose Inexorbial advance sadly unless you take it in a different detachment

It’s actually oddly inconvenient in that front having just Chaos and Nurgle faction keywords, ruling it out from daemons as well (think you needs the daemons faction keyword for loci and the army wide trait)
