Cleance and purify and trust in your battle brothers would be more of pre heresy death guard though, eh?

Just my thoughts, other than that, it looks good.

Plus, I love how you quoted me, I thought wow, thats funny, and I realized I said that.

While it is true that from general fluff these traits are mroe death guardy, my army is entirely built around the horus heresy series. I know as it is books it is pretty generic but they do seem to use their bolters in combat a lot more.

Cleanse and purify is to counter the lack of lascannons, and demonstrate the large amounts of flamers/plasma around.
