    Nurgle Daemons 1500 - First Try

    Hi, I'm just starting trying a Daemon force to play when people get narky about my DE and was wondering if this was any good I think its probably a a pretty standard list, but just let me know what I've messed up .

    HQ

    Epidemius 110

    Ku'Gath 300

    Troops

    14 Plaguebearers, Icon 235

    14 Plaguebearers, Icon 235

    7 Nurglings 91

    7 Nurglings 91

    7 Nurglings 91

    Heavy Support

    Daemon Prince
    Iron Hide, Flying, Breath of Chaos
    Mark of Nurgle, Cloud of Flies
    (i've forgotten how much this costs, not got my codex to hand, but am fairly sure this leaves me ~10-20 points under).

    Think you need at least 3 units of Plaguebearers. Also think at 1500 a regular GUO over kugath might be better option. Also consider getting more Demonprinces as they are the fastest reliable way of getting tally kills. Here are some reasons.

    Not sure I would put flying on them but your dp is 235 with kugath 1/3 of your army.
    Need more scoring units.

    This is my suggestion for demon princes of nurgle:
    Demon Prince:Ironhide-MoN-AoD-BoC-CoF-190 or
    Demon Prince:Ironhide-MoN-AoD-DG-CoF-185
    Great Unclean One:CoF-AoD-BoC-215

    GUO-CoF-AoD-BoC-215
    Epidemius-110
    14 Plaguebearers, Icon 235
    7 Plaguebearers, Icon 130
    7 Plaguebearers 105
    Nurglingsx5 65
    Nurglingsx5 65
    Demon Prince-Ironhide-MoN-AoD-BoC-CoF-190
    Demon Prince-Ironhide-MoN-AoD-BoC-CoF-190
    Demon Prince-Ironhide-MoN-AoD-BoC-CoF-190
    1495

    Some people are not a fan of the AoD but i like anything that can give me more kills. If you don't like it then I would put the 80+5 points into bulking up epidemius unit of PBs and if you switched all the BoC to DG you would have enough for 7 more plaguebearers.

    GUO-CoF-DG-190
    Epidemius-110
    21 Plaguebearers, Icon 340
    7 Plaguebearers, Icon 130
    7 Plaguebearers 105
    Nurglingsx5 65
    Nurglingsx5 65
    Demon Prince-Ironhide-MoN-DG-CoF-165
    Demon Prince-Ironhide-MoN-DG-CoF-165
    Demon Prince-Ironhide-MoN-DG-CoF-165
    1500

    This is what I would look to do, I seen you were trying to keep to the number 7. If you go to higher points would then add in more nurglings. Until you get the tally they are just fodder/tarpits. Also beasts of nurgle get pretty sweet when the tally goes up.

    Well I don't want any extra demon princes (only got the 1 model), but I take your point about more scoring units, so will drop 1 unit of Nurglings and replace them with a unit of Plague bearers. Will think about swapping Kugath for a Guc, but the Necrotic missiles just seem so good. I also can't drop the wings on the DP as I only have 1.

    So new list

    HQ

    Epidemius 110

    Ku'Gath 300

    Troops

    14 Plaguebearers, Icon 235

    14 Plaguebearers, Icon 235

    7 Plaguebearers 105

    7 Nurglings 91

    7 Nurglings 91

    7 Nurglings 91

    Heavy Support

    Daemon Prince 235
    Iron Hide, Flying, Breath of Chaos
    Mark of Nurgle, Cloud of Flies

    1493

    7 points left over.

    The plan with this list is to use Kugath and the DP to get the tally up whilst using hte Nurglings as tarpits that become deadly when the tally rises. The Plaguebearers are to hold objectives and protect Epidemius.

    An epidemius list with only 1 DP will never work.

    I'd drop Ku'Gath, Epidemius, DP, a squad of nurglings, and put in some units that can actually cause some damage.

    This statement is true. If money is tight I would suggest doing some converting or finding a cheaper alternative to a demon prince there are several companies that produce models on scale with 40k. Though I find it funner to model my own demons when it comes to the biggies. In casual games should be more then acceptable and if you convert your demons using majority of GW and self sculpt it will be legal in tournies as well.

    It is very much needed to have the demon princes of nurgle to get your tally up fast. My first statement remains the same. I am just tryin to be more constructive then telling you to wipe your list and make a new one. I like seeing people taking this hobby to another level and converting/sculpting their own models(as long as they look somewhat good) I don't expect they are gonna be professionally done but as long as they don't look like some gradeschool kids playdoh creations.
