MikeH,

OK, lets see what we have. Nurgle isn't my strongest suit, but I'll see if anything just begs a question.

-This guy looks decent, I'm suprised that you're not using a man-reaper, but this is a good, strong, reletively cheap beatstick.

-Wow, you don't often see termies in a 1k list. Seeing that you need reliable anti-tank I don't blame you though. These seem OK.

-Good old fashioned buried powerfists, backed with plasma and bolters. I personally dislike the Plasmagun for nurgle, because you are more likely to wound yourself than the enemy is. I'd reccomend meltas since infiltrate will get you close anyway. Further, to bulk up your forces and give you some counterassault, I'd drop 1 Squad of Plague Marines and swap for 2 7-base Nurgling Swarms; this also frees up some points to deck out your Pred; as the only tank on the board, it's going to need help.

-With the points saved from the swap above, you can put Mutated Hull and Daemonic Possession on your pred, making it far more survivable. (Especially if you drop it into cover) As your only armor, it needs to be tough enough to withstand the punishment that will be thrown it's way!

-I really don't lie this unit. As it is it has no ranged attack, and it too slow to reach the enemy. You really need ninja-like rhino movement for these guys to be effective. I'm not sure what you'd rather do with the points, but consider something else, as the only way these will make it into CC is by use as a countercharge unit.

-This unit will die before it reaches CC. It's a high priority target, that can be shattered by lascannon-fire. I suppose that you could have the Possessed follow in it's shadow, using it to block LOS to it. Then again I may just be being a pessemist... :

Total:1850pts

-Sounds good.

All in all, you just need to make your 1000p list more like your 1850 (tournament?) list.
Thoughts?

Default Re: 1000 & 1850 Death Guard Lists

Well, the Dread nought I chose because I have the model and it attracts fire away from other units and vehicles...

The Possessed were entirely experimental. I have this really, really cool conversion in mind, clipping off the hands of plastic Chaos Marines and replacing them with Tyranid Scything talons. Add green stuff, keep moving... however, I might play a few games and if it doesn't work... Maybe replace it with a Chaos Ly.

Chaos Lt
-Twin Lightning Claws
-Demonic Speed
-Demonic Aura
-Demonic Str
-Mark of Nurgle
-Infiltrate
135pts

and replace the Dreadnought with another Predator, this time an Annhilator with Heavy bolts, or perhaps a Havok Squad with 4 meltas?

-I like that LT+Tank idea much better, but definitely proxy the Possessed and try them out before you take my word for it.

Let me know how it goes,
Ged

Something didn't look right about your points listed here. I've never been able to squeeze termies in a 1k point list let alone with a predator. When I added it all up I came up with Total of 1187. Better double check your math. Maybe you only ment to have two squads of Plague Marines?

146+349+189+189+189+125=1187
