    1500 points Nurgle

    I have just recently converted into 1500, so im just givin this a test run:

    HQ

    Ku'gath - 300

    Epidemius - 110

    Elites

    5 x Beasts of Nurgle - 175

    Troops

    10 x Plaguebearers - 150
    10 x Plaguebearers - 150
    10 x Plaguebearers - 150

    Heavy Support

    Daemon Prince of Nurgle with Iron Hide, MoN, Cloud of Flies and Noxious Touch-155
    Daemon Prince of Nurgle with Iron Hide, MoN, Cloud of Flies and Noxious Touch-155
    Daemon Prince of Nurgle with Iron Hide, MoN, Cloud of Flies and Noxious Touch-155

    Total - 1500

    Im thinkin first batch of people should be :
    Ku'gath
    Epidemius
    Daemon Prince
    Daemon Prince
    Daemon Prince

    Then second batch to be:
    10 x Plaguebearers
    10 x Plaguebearers

    Ku'Gath is too expensive. His pie plate looks nice on paper, but it only wounds on a 4+ and most enemies will have cover too, so you'll be killing 25% of what you hit. Not worth twice the cost of a GUO. Grab a normal GUO w/ Breath and give your DPs wings. Nurglings wouldn't hurt either.

    Wings are too expensive, if you ask me. I'd run epidemius w/ a unit of 20 plaguebearers. with ku'gath out throw in 3 suicide breath nurgle heralds. If you drop those with breath princes, 1st turn tally baby! If points becom an issue drop a beast or two, beasts are only good once the tally is up. Just a thought.

    Nurgle Heralds are garbage, and breath is too short ranged to guarantee it. Scatter a few inches and you're done.

    I don't normally advocate wings on a DP, but Nurgle lists need them to get stuck in quick and get killing. You would be ok with 2 winged DPs, maybe drop 3 PBs if you want the other one.

    I have been running a mono-nurgle demon list since release of demons and the suggestions I would make would be:

    I would disagree, Ku'gath has +1 attack +1 wound necrotic missile and nurgling infestation is worth the 105 more points you will pay,which isn't double the cost of a normal GUO after you buy the abilities you would for a GUO. The necrotic missile may only wound on 4+ but its still another shooting attack he can use and take advantage of being a MC and shooting two weapons. I had kugath take down 2 dakka tyrants and 6 tyrant guards w/lash whips and a dakkafex over 3 turns, my opponent underestimated his survivability when he assaulted him in some trees. Outside of KP missions the infestation is good especially when tally starts wracking up. Though you could get a normal GUO and a Herald w/palanquin,boc,cof for ku'gath. Also the necrotic missile is the good for its range.

    I run aura of decay on my dps and unless there are t3 models its nearly worthless, though very good against hordes.
    I would consider dropping the beasts and getting 2x6 units of nurglings and put instruments on your plaguebearers, though instruments not needed they are pretty decent upgrade for the unit.

    I have found the wings work pretty well with the DPs and when I don't use them wish I had even at how costly they are, they are the fastest unit Nurgle can get.

    Like alot of demon lists but even more so mono nurgle lacks anti tank so I have recently considered putting in a unit of 3xscreamers of T for the ability to handle LRs.

    These are just a few considerations to think about.
