I have been playing Death Guard for a while now, but only small battles, 400 - 750pts.
So far I've just used a lieutenant with mark of nurgle, daemonic strenght and either manreaper or a powerweapon.
But now that I'm looking at bigger games, 1000-1500, I've been thinking of either upgrading my lieutenant with terminator armour or some daemonic gifts, maybe even making him a chaos lord... but what should I get?
So basically, I'm asking you lot what you use, how do you kit out your Nurgle HQ's?
i kinda need to know your entire army so that way i can tell what your offence defence etc is like. if u tell me your whole army i can tell u what to do 4 your hq.

I have a Lieutenant with the sorcerer ability, and give him 2 minor powers, cos the Nurgle minor powers rock!
Im expanding to 2000, and im gonna have some chosen to accompany this guy.
Then i have a Deamon Prince as my lord. Ive given him daemonic speed, so he runs up the field, and hopefully distracts the big guns long enough for the rest of my force to get there.
I'd leave your Leiutenant as he is or (maybe) add daemonic aura. If you find you need more HQ than that, add a Great Unclean One with Wind of Chaos.
BTW, why chosen? They cost more than Chaos Space Marines and all you get extra is leadership 10 which you don't need because Mark of Nurgle makes you fearless. Use possessed instead.
that or plague terminators, they can carry heavy weapons like the reaperautocannon.
A lieutenant with terminator armour and 7 plague terminators would be costly pointswise (and a great modelling opertunity), but would they be worthwhile?
And thanks for the advice, I think I'll keep my lieutenant as he is, possibly with d. aura.
I like fielding a lone terminator lord with a manreaper, daemonic strength and essence. I deep strike him and he chews threw entire squads pretty easily. Just something to consider, although everything presented in this thread are viable options. As for the terminators, i'd only use a squad like that in big games. Remember the lord will count towards the total for favoured numbers, so he'd have a retinue of 6 instead of 7.
I've done an oblit convertion for my terminators, for the fig to start, but they kind help alot in taking charges and can deal plenty damage. the reaper autao cannons help when DSed bheinf enemy lines.Originally Posted by Gorbass
even at 2000 pts, I still use the Lt, but had the unclean one.
My Lt goes like this
you got yourself up to 12 attacks on the charge at S6

I do have possesed. But in my experience they got shot up before they reach anywhere.
