Ok, as it stands, asking what is good in a death guard list is like asking what is good in a waste heap...its all pretty much trash
Mortarion sucks, he is actually terrible
He is not great a combat, pretty terrible at shooting, and meah at psychic.
He also dies...alot, usually in 1 turn.
And he requires so many things to keep him alive (deathshroud etc). But he sucks even when he is alive
Land Raiders and Rhinos suuuuuuuck.
You are paying points to have your guys not shoot.
And when they die, which they will, they end up killing your own guys.
Land Raiders are stupidly easy to kill.
A nurgle land raider from alpha legion with a chaplin giving -1 to hit is the only way to run it.
Take 3 with lascannons and fist if you do take them.
Typhus/Lord Contagion/Any DG Terminator
You want to know what is terrible? A unit designed for CC with a movment of 4"
Yay, finaly a half decent DG unit
Nurgle Daemon Prince
Probably Best Daemon Prince in the game.
These are again garbage.
For screens they are ok i guess. Nurglings do it just as good, if not better, for cheaper.
Very funny watching your opponent try to kill them.
Its not very funny when you watch them try to kill something.
Stupid weapon load out, all models have to be with 7" to recieve cover....next
Just compare these to plaguebearers. Its not even funny out crap we are. For more than half the points they get, -1 to hit, 5++, re-roll all fail to wound, double damage on 6s, regain models on a Ld roll of 1. We get a 3+ save (vs 5++), 3+WS/BS (vs 4+WS), T5 (vs T4), and re-roll 1s to wound.
Again, they are more than half the points.
Yea, just play those instead.
GW seems to have forgotten about DG. We were supposed to be the poster child of evil 40k. Since out release CSM have a 2 codexs, 2 suppliments and now F&F...And they are considered bad.
