I am caught between choosing a Cult Army that I will be playing for fun.
This is the way I see it.
Plague Carrier Vehicles
6 Wound Greater Daemon
Transports are FA
No heavy weapons
Nurg gifts get expensive
Psykers, and auto pass tests
One of the Coolest Special Characters ever
Closest thing to Deathwing in the Game (expensive though)
Great Greater Daemon( :wacko
Incredibly Expensive, even more so when adding powers
Few heavy Weapons
No specialisation in CSM squads
Daemons tend to suck.
Is their anything you guys can add? Maybe it'll help make my decision. Right now I'm leaning towards Death Guard.
I will not chose for you,only adjust a little detail.It might seem like it, but then again you do have some Heavy Weapon equivalents: Bolt of Change and Doombolt.Few heavy Weapons
Bolt of Change is an assault krack-missile launcher, and Doombolt is an assault Heavy Bolter. This is good but combined with Thralls they turn even better. Put a HQ in the unit and you are fielding some serious firepower.There is no problem to have your units specialized. You can make some truely awsome CC-units by giving the right stuff to your Champion and if you want fire-power...se above.No specialisation in CSM squadsI must disagree on this too. Apart from the...longlived, yet rather useless horrors, the Tzeentchian daemons (Screamers and Flamers) are fantabulous.Daemons tend to suck.
The screamers are great at chasing down Independent characters or just adding some serious CC-punch to your Sons. The flamers...wow. If you get a sacred unit of these make sure you have dice enough. Ever seen the face of an opponent when he realises that the new unit just poped up can move, fire 27 Heavy Bolter shots and then assault at S4? If the unit happends to have a 4+ save or worse it's even greater.
The only downside playing the sons is...Psychic Hood. You'll learn to hate them.
I would like to have magic with a similar effect on the opponents army.
"Before you fire any heavy or special weapons you must roll against my Ld..."
well i agree with what andy said but i will add another pro to nurgle... true grit remember you got a t5 model that rocks at both shooting and cc who needs an extra wound?
"take my love, take my land, take me to where i cannot stand, i don't care i'm still free you can't take the sky from meee" ;- firefly
"i'm gonna grant you your greatest wish i'm gonna show you a world without sin" ;- serentiy
"I am a leaf on the wind, watch how i soar" ;- serenity
I agree with this, wholeheartedly, but as someone much smarter than me pointed out earlier...there are ways around that damnable piece of wargear.Originally Posted by Andusciassus
The easiest one is to simply kill the wearer
The smart player also pointed out that the psychic hood also cannot affect the doombolts that your demons cast, so you always can rely on those if nothing else.
For added irony, use those unimpeded doombolts to kill the Psychic Hood wearer.
Flamers (that the daemons not the Karmoon is great gun) are not affected by the hood.

DG march no more slowly than any other Marine.With the unlamented demise of the Rush, how many players take more than two anyway?Transports are FA
If, say, yours does, the DG option lets you take up to 9 squads of Plaguemarines!
WB players, eat your hearts out! X- D
So, DG may take 5 out of a possible 6 (non-W Troop Transports.
Not a deal-breaker for me. YMMV.Well, except for the Termi Reaper Autocannon and Heavy Flamers. And also -No heavy weapons
Preddy Ans, Preddy Ds, Dreads, Defilers, Rhino Havok Missile Upgrades and Landraiders.
You *could* decide to take a fluffy 77 Assault and Heavy Weapons in a largish DG list. :- )
Finally, the DG 4x Assault Weapon Havok squads are just unusual, not unusable.The MoT is twice the cost of the MoN *on every Marine in your force*!Nurg gifts get expensiveIf Chaos Deathwing is what you want, TS are really all Chaos can offer.TS...Cons: Incredibly Expensive}- ]Right now I'm leaning towards Death Guard.
