Welcome to Librarium Online!
How do you beat a Nurgle army with Imperial Guard? What are some of the special rules for nurgle? Thanks for any help you can give me.
I don't recommend posting what is basically the same topic, in two different places, my friend. The mods might frown upon it, as generally one topic is enough. Most players frequent the other armies' forums enough to see your topic and I'm sure that some Chaos players will be there to help you.Originally Posted by KickinK939
Also, you can't technically ask for any special rules, because it would be copyright infringement.
Just be patient and people will be along to help you out. ^_^
This should actually be a very easy matchup. IG is almost a perfect counter to Nurgle.
He'll have no anti-tank weapons save meltas on anything but his tanks. Kill his preadators asap, and then just watch his unsupported marines advance slowly into a withering hail of fire. Template weapons do not discriminate at all against T5 marines, and you should have no problem killing his troops before he gets to you.

98% of the population actually believes these stupid statistics. If you're part of the 2% of humanity with a brain, put this in your profile.
Nurgle is classicly infiltrated. There's little marching up the pitch getting the seven shades blown out of them.
What exact problems are you having with them?

what i usually run is 3 7 man squads infiltrating with plasma guns. they are backed up by at least 2 rhinos filled with more marines and at least 1 land raider filled with troops (all depends on the points)
what i would suggest you do is put the terrain you get to place on the edges (backs) of deployment zones to cut off his infiltration area. set up your troops in standard we have guns formation and do the artillery drill if neccisarry. basically just play it how you see it. Play some infiltrating storm troopers if hes an infiltrating kind of guy. you can drastically cut down on his deployment area with this.
kill the pred if he has one. dont try to get them to take %25 casualties, they dont make a save cause they are fearless. at 2000 pts you shouldnt face more than 60 marines. focus on one squad at a time and make it dissapear.
