He just started out with Chaos a month or two ago after switching from Tyranids, and now he settled on Death Guard. Any good criticism of the following list would be appreciated:

Elites - 388 pts.

1 x 3 Terminators w/ Mark of Nurgle, frag and krak grenades, power weapons, combi-bolters. One has a reaper autocannon. One is an aspiring champion.

1 x 7 Possessed, w/ Mark of Nurgle, daemonic talons, w/ aspiring champion

Troops - 308

1 x 7 Plague Marines w/ Mark of Nurgle, frag grenades, counter-attack, w/ aspiring champion.

1 x 7 Plague Marines w/ Mark of Nurgle, frag grenades, counter-attack, w/ aspiring champion.

Heavy Support - 161

1 x Dreadnought, w/ lascannon, missile launcher, searchlight, havoc launchers.

Personally, I would use an Lt. in such low point values to compensate for the rest of your army. However, that is only my preferance, as something this big is hard to take out in 1000 points. It should do a lot of damage, but a single Railgun can take it out in one hit. Otherwise, it is pretty good for a decent amount of points.

I'm not a fan of Termies in this low points. One Demolisher Cannon will wipe out the squad in a hit. I would drop these. Points spent better elsewhere.

These are pretty good. Pricey though. I'm in the grey on these guys.

I would DEFINITELY get some more. I would replace the counter-attack with infiltrate, as Death Guard are slow, and perhaps the frag grenades. The good thing about Death Guard is having a LOT of T5 models. Fourteen isn't really enough. You might want to add a Meltagun or two, as you lack many anti-tank weapons.

I, personally, do not like Dreadnoughts. If the enemy plans right, they could have it start to move into a position where they can kill it off easily, or even force it to fire at your own men. I would replace it with a Predator w/ an autocannon and two lascannons and a Mutated Hull. Pretty cheap, and can take out tanks very well.

It is ok, but needs a bit of work. You have very few models in the list you have now. Being outnumbered can be your undoing.
