Hi all, i'm starting a death duard army and dont know what to buy first of all.
I already have Typhus(love the model too much), and was thinking of a couple of squads of normal chaos marines.
Any suggestions will be welcome.
Welcome to the embrace of Father Nurgle! For a pure Deathguard army you'll need a couple of squads of Plague Marines, the regular Chaos Marine models will work but only really with a bit of conversion work. A better bet is to get some Plague Marine models (new or old, they're both quite nice) And some heavy support soon after to make up for your lack of heavy weapons, either a Defiler, Predator or Dreadnought, it's your call really. Remember to make everything really nurgley!

I would say
1 Thypus model ( if you want a lord intermie armour, other wise you can make one yourself )
1 boxed set of Plague marines ( if you have the money for it, otherwie convert from regular CSM )
1 boxed set of plaguebearers
1 Typhus (if/when I get the money, I want to make a full squad based on this model.. and half a ton of greenstuff)
2 - 4 Boxes of plastic chaos space marines
1 plastic space marine dreadnought
7 - 14 Plague bearers
Thats what I'd go for.
Instead of making a sqaud based on Thypus get yourself the new SM terminators1 Typhus (if/when I get the money, I want to make a full squad based on this model.. and half a ton of greenstuff)
Thats what will most likely happen, but I still think a squad based on Typhus would be cool, the model is pretty big and it'd look way intimidating
When i go into town tomorrow i think i'll get a couple of blisters of plague bearers and a box of CSM's (about Â£30 in total).
I'll paint them up and then get some firepower.
Don't forget to buy some greenstuff you'll need it to convert the normal CSM
I already have some. Thanks anyway though.Originally Posted by Dreachon
