This is were I am at a stand still. As much as I like my Nurgle Daemon Princes, I of course like many others like lots of plague marines too. Now I am putting this out there to get some opinions of others on what they think of this one. For Chaos I see that most armies (on average) field 4 squads of troops. Now is it worth a 5th squad of Plague Marines instead of a 2nd Daemon Prince? or has the 2nd Nurgle Prince or any 2nd hq choice for that matter done it's job on a regular basis and validate the 2nd hq choice instead of more troops?
It depends on a lot of factors, how many points is this army, how much CC do you have already, what does your army try to do. More info would be helpful. Generally I encourage more Troops, especially in any type of Marines or elite army.

For me, I try to follow the rule of 50% troops - so for 2,000 points, I have around four troop squads worth about 250 points each.
Basically, for every 500 points we escalate, I add another troop squad.
If you only have 2 troops choices I say that the extra troop choice is the better idea. 3 or more troops choices go with the DP. I assume this is based on you have enough points to field either, but are trying to decide which is better.
