    Really interesting army, I really like the fact you are taking a Great Unclean One and an Havoc squad with 4 meltaguns.

    The only change I would do is to drop the Nurglings. Since everything Infiltrate, there is no point in taking them as they will deploy after everything else. Since they are used primarly to tie up nasty units in CC there are chances you won't use them at all because all your Plague Marines squads will get in close combat before they do. Alone they can't really kill anything (unless you are really lucky), anyway, not much more than a Tau Firewarrior

    The Plaguebearers are situational, I personally don't like them, a squad of Plague Marines can do everything they can do and a lot more for just a little more points. Their armour save is not good enought to make them stand their ground in close combat more than 2 rounds and their weapons are good if you are lucky with the dice. Of course they have Plague Swords but it's not enougth to make them even remotly good. If you take them it's because you want to follow the Deathguard army fluff. Your AC's with their power fists will do much more damage than a full squad of those.

    If you drop the Plague Bearers yo have 140 pts. With that you can have a fully equipped Dreadnought with twin-linked lascannons, a missile launcher, a smoke launcher and extra armour. This will support your Plague Marines squad with some more fire power. If you decide to drop the Nurglings too you can spend your remaining points on gifts for your Aspiring Champions, like Daemonic Mutation, Daemonic Strength (for the AC's with a power weapon) and Daemonic Visage, that will make them even more deadly.

    That's my 2 cents, hope it helps.

    I would drop the squad of plauge Bearers, nurglings and great unclean one. In their place, I would put 2 more Squads of Plauge marines, or a squad of Plauge marines and a havoc squad.

    Oh yeah, Thyr, Nurgle can't have lascannons :'(

    I like the list though, I love nurgle armies, just the way they look, there is just so much infantry, so much T5... mmmm...............

    But yeah, thats all

    Doesn't the Great Unclean One get a free major psychic power. I read somewhere that it's power is free.

    From looking in the chaos marines book, it appears that you can only upgrade one warrior from each squad to have a plasma gun or melta gun. Now, maybe i missed a special rule, and maybe you can choose to not upgrade one of the warriors to have a lascannon, missle launcher, autocannon, or heavy bolter, and make it eligible to carry the meltagun that you gave them, but i haven't found a rule that says you can. As far as I can tell, you should only be able to take one meltagun per squad.

    Now, if i am wrong, it would be great to learn this, and please tell me if i am.

    You are wrong mate - read the entry more closely and you will find provided he doesnt take a heavy weapon in the squad, he can take a second special weapon

    well i dont see why you would want ot give your havocs nurgles rot, as there whole point is to stay far away from the enemy and hit with there heavy weapons and if theve gotten within 6" of your havocs then your alrdy in trouble, im not sure what to do to get other points back, mayb drop nurgles rots on the infantry? or switch one squad out and replace it for nurglings or some cheap squad of demons, tho im not really sure. The idea behind the list seems very solid tho (Y)
