Default Nurgle Lord Build

Well, I've started up Death Guard again.... mostly because my best friend was selling his for a very low price. So, he included a Chaos Lord made from a Fantasy lord (and boy is it nice!). It came to me when he handed me his army list as:

Chaos Lord:
-Dark Blade
-Demonic Speed
-Demonic Strength
-Demonic Aura
-Demonic Essence
-Demonic Armor
-Plasma Pistol
-Furious Charge
-Spikey Bits
-MoN

Which I have simplified to:

Chaos Lord
-Dark Blade
-Bolt Pistol
-Demonic Speed
-Demonic Aura
-Infiltration
-Nurgle's Rot
-MoN

My problem with it is that it kinda feels like... sacrilege you know? Not the ripping off of the unneeded stuff- though I might tack essence back on, but because there is no Manreaper. However, I have used my build in several games and I must say it is GREAT for eliminating Las/plas!

Too true... what I do like about him is that I've found by picking the edge of a squad, so only 2 or 3 models are in the kill zone, including their power fist sergeant if possible, and then killing them on turn one is that it lets me hide in the unit before finishing them off during their assault phase.

IMO, hes just a point sink and not used to his potential. Lords w/ manreapers play a key role in any DG army. They are the perfect troop/elite killer. I honestly believe that the MR lord is the best termie killer in the game. If you are using a mortal non-statured lord I can't stress enough the Manreaper- D strength combo. Enemies will be dropping like flies. The manreaper isn't a fluff thing, its just a great weapon.
