Bloodletters are good for taking out Marines, Necrons and SoB. Pretty much anything with a 3+ save or better. Their power weapons make them great against these armies where every squad counts.
Daemonettes are a bit more flash in pan type of daemons. They'll kill one squad then probably die. Because of this they are better suited to taking out more expensive, smaller groups of units. Terminators, HQs, Immortals and Tyranid Warriors are the things they're good against.
I really don't know what Plaguebearers are used for because I don't use Nurgle, nor have I seen it played. Though they look like good, tough reinforcements that can be summoned in.
Nurglings are not too bad. Would be better if they moved 12 inches a turn. But that'd be pretty cheesy
Flamers are great little daemons that can really massacre hoarde armies with bad saves, like Tyranids, Orks and Dark Eldar.
Flesh Hounds are my favourite of all the fast attack. They move incredilby quickly each turn and can deal out huge amounts of damage with Str 5 and I 5. They're useful against everything.
Furies are like slightly weaker assault marine. I personally don't like them that much.
Screamers are probably only suited for armies that don't have access to these other daemons, though hit and run is useful if you don't like using Raptors.
Mounted Daemonettes are a waste of points.
Ok a plaguebearer is this lesser daemon of nurgle. They are good at holding up low strength units, have the amazing ability of nurgles rot :wub: , and are best used against lightly armored low toughness troops, like guardians.

Theres just been a long discussion about this in another forum, and the general view their was that deamonettes are the best choice. They have statisticly better killing power/point against any target they could think of (yes marines too). They also have a good chance to damage high av vehichles, something bloodletters cant. You should however consider how you are going to bring your deamons in to battle. If you lack in fast moving icons (ie bikes), blood letters are probably a bit more survivable. I wouldn't want them to suffer too much small arms fire though, since every letter is friggin expensive!
Tony: You love flesh hounds, but despise furies? Furies have almost identical stats, and are 6 pts cheaper. The only thing you miss out on is a d6 shorter move on the turn you assault and one pip of leadership.
One thing to consider about plague bearers is that they could hurt your own guys, if you play undivided.
I'm not sure about the mounted deamonettes, they must be very deadly indead, especially if you lack in fast deamon delivery systems. Much greater killing power then any other fast deamon.
:closedeyes: plagubearers are great deamons to use against any target, especiallly marines. Marines will only hit them 50% of the time and will only wound them 33% of the time because of thier toughness.
Sure they lack the killing power of bloodletters but they make up for that in low points cost, high toughness, and nurgles rot! (Y)
Any player who allows them to hurt his own troops is just not that bright anyway. :blink:

Tony's quoteYes, nurglings are really good. Their W:point ratio is astounding! But I think that your leader must be allianed with Nurgle to take nurglings.Nurglings are not too bad. Would be better if they moved 12 inches a turn. But that'd be pretty cheesy
-Bloodletters are great elite/hq killiers.
-Daemonettes are great marine/tank killers.
-Horrors are great anti-horde killers (along with flamers).
-Plaugebearers are also good elite killers, but keep any non-deamon/deathguard models away from them (which is hard to do with CSM as they are the icon bearers!.
-Flesh hounds are good anti-psychic killers.
-Screamers are good cheap hit quick and avoid being hit.
-Furies have a good A:speed:attack ratio.
-Mounted daemonettes are high point high A speed daemons (Pun!
The type of daemons you choose should depend on what area you lack. If you lack on anti-stong unit killers, go bloodletters. If you want fast-low point models, go furies.

Well the demons that have proven most effective against me (playing black templars and orks) are fleash hounds. Since they assualt 12 inches you will almost always get the charge instead of your enemy. With the high leadership, and I/S-5 you will be killing quite a few models and they will def. make up thier points. So i would suggest them, and make a loud evil laugh in your oponent's face when you summon them and charge an unsuspecting squad. (Y) (Y)
FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!!
What is dis signature nonsence?! dem stupid human zoggers are always trien to confuze us.
ya plaguebearers are the way to go, just keep them more than 6 inches away from there friendlys that dont have the mark of nurgle for well obvious reasons (nurgle rot). i Suggest getting a squad for tying down troops.
