Default Nurgle-themed LATD, 2000 pts

ok i've been playing alpha legion and (swapping cultists for mutants) LATD for a while.Now I'm working my way towards a nurgle csm force, and what better way to start that than with LATD.

On to the list!

HQ
Aspiring champion
Mark of Nurgle
Power fist
Bolt Pistol
-52
Aspiring champion
Mark of Nurgle
Power fist
Bolt Pistol
-52
Aspiring champion
Mark of Nurgle
Power fist
Bolt Pistol

Arch Heretic
Mark of Nurgle
Daemonic Speed
Manreaper
Frag Grenades
-96
Troops
28 Mutants
Nurgle Mutation
Boss with power fist and close combat weapon
-285
28 Mutants
Nurgle Mutation
Boss with power fist and close combat weapon
-285
28 Mutants
Nurgle Mutation
Boss with power fist and close combat weapon
-285
7 traitors
lascannon
sniper
-72
7 traitors

7 traitors
lascannon
sniper
-72
Fast Attack
7 rough riders
melta bombs
2 melta guns
-110
7 rough riders
veteran sergeant
5 hunting lances
2 melta guns
-103

Allies
Daemon Prince
Daemonic Speed
Daemonic Stature
Daemonic Aura
Mark of Nurgle
-111

7 plague marines
infiltrate
aspiring champion with power sword
2 plasma guns
-174

7 plague marines
infiltrate
aspiring champion with power sword
2 plasma guns
-174

This list may or may not be legal... they weren't very clear. If the marines have a mark of chaos they count as elites, but if I take legion specific troops I have to follow all the rules for that legion, and they are death guard. If this is illegal, I'll probably add a unit of nurgle possessed.

Razorpowell,

While I like the list in principal, it is sadly illegal in two ways. :'(

1) You have 3 HQ choices: 3 ACs, Arch Heretic, and Allied DP. You have 8 "Troops Choices": 3 Mutant Mobs, 3 Traitor Teams, and 2 Squads of Plague Marines. The Ally rules don't provide you with extra slots, they just use the ones that you have.

2) PLague Marines, as you suspected, become Elite Choices in the LatD. You may want to consider that unit of Nurgle Possessed; OR you can get around the problem by counting them as chosen: One unit as stand alone, and the second as a retinue for the Arch Heretic.

Other than that, the list is fluffy, fun, and balanced.

Rock On,
Ged

are you sure? the way I read the rules was that the allies essentially had their own force organization chart, especially since allies don't count as compulsory units. other than that, I'll take the second plague marine squad and make it into a squad of seven posessed with bp and ccw, and an aspiring champion with power weapon. I wouldn't have points for the mark of nurgle, but they'd be modeled in a nurgle way and I figure daemonic aura sort of represents their toughness.
the chosen are another option. I could drop the lieutenant to pay for the extra cost of turning one unit into chosen, and then buff up the daemon prince. However, if the alllies use my FOC I could redo my list like this:
HQ
Aspiring champion
Mark of Nurgle
Power fist
Bolt Pistol
-52
Aspiring champion
Mark of Nurgle
Power fist
Bolt Pistol
-52
Aspiring champion
Mark of Nurgle
Power fist
Bolt Pistol
-52
Elites:
7 possessed
Aspiring Champion
Daemonic Talons
Mark of Nurgle
-224
Rhino
Smoke Launchers
Extra Armor
-58
Troops
28 Mutants
Nurgle Mutation
Boss with power fist and close combat weapon
-285
28 Mutants
Nurgle Mutation
Boss with power fist and close combat weapon
-285
28 Mutants
Nurgle Mutation
Boss with power fist and close combat weapon
-285
7 traitors
lascannon
sniper
-72
7 traitors
lascannon
sniper
-72
Fast Attack
7 rough riders
melta bombs
2 melta guns
-110
7 rough riders
veteran sergeant
5 hunting lances
2 melta guns
-103

Allies
Daemon Prince
Daemonic Speed
Daemonic Stature
Daemonic Aura
Daemonic Essence
Mark of Nurgle
Daemonic Mutation
Daemonic Armor
-150

7 plague marines
infiltrate
aspiring champion with power sword
2 plasma guns
-174

a little more cc power, a little better daemon prince. I lose some guns and that nasty first turn shot but I get a nasty, powerful, and resilient squad of possessed.

Razorpowell,

I am sure unfortunately, otherwise I'd use more Noise Marines in my own army. The new list looks viable, I say run with it.

Drop mutation or essence on the DP, and lose those god awful possessed, they are a points sink and are sooooooo expensive for what they do. Lose them for a bassie or some spawns or somthing more useful.


And I havent seen you around. Supz im Sitarangi, your friendly neighborhood Nurgle Lord. Its good to see another Nurgle LatD fan out there, I personally invite you to join the nurgle cult (click on the giant pic in my sig). Also, if you want to help with some Nurgle LatD tacticas, just PM me or feel free to post in the Nurgle DG tactica thread (its a a page or two back). Its a great way to earn some karma cookies.

Cheers,

Sitarangi (pronounced sit-a-rawn-ji, from the wild boyz)
