Did you choose that particular weapons load out for the first plague marines squad because that was the models you had?

No particular criticisms.

As a sucker for the underdog I often choose non-standard weapons but the dual knives in a squad that mostly shoots seems an odd choice.

I personally would either invest in bolters OR dual knives - not mix it up too much. Flail is good for 'just in case'

Thanks for the feedback, I just thought of the extra combat punch over shooting for free. Now you have pointed it out I get what you are saying.

Model wise I have more marines with various loadout, another bloat drone more poxwalkers and Typhus another DP and another PBC.

Did also look at this list but thought it might be a bit thin on the ground troops wise.

Are the points wrong for the Daemon Prince? Battlescribe says it costs 195. Or am I doing something wrong?

Disregard. I had the box for Blight Spewer checked. Oops.
