if you dedicate an army.... say to nurgle, is it possible for that army to be given units that would not usally be permited?
beacuase when i was reading the bo0ks of chaos i noticed that the way it has been writen is "if you want to feild an all death gaurd army you should follow the restrictions" but it does not say anything about just giving units the mark of nurgle but not dedicating them to being deathgaurd
and if you decide not to have them as deathgaurd do they still get true grit or does that just come with the mark anyway?
sorry if this has been posted before but i searched and i couldnt find anything that matched this post.
If you play a pure force, you can only take models that can be dedicated to nurgle. With tanks, they dont have to be dedicated but can be if you wish.
thanks hope it helpped.
What Danjones says is true, however you CAN take a mostly Nurgle Black legion force, then you can use anything that is allowed by black legion (Except those with Tzeentech marks if your lord/highest liuetenant/greater daemon's host has the mark of nurgle... read the ancient enemies rules.)

the restriction chart is for when you wanna use a pure Nurgle or any other God army. Pure mean that all your troops/hero have the mark you choosed, you got bonus like free asp champ.
It's better to not have a pure army because there is more cons then pros for it. you can mixt 2 army like Nurgle and Khorne if you want, so you got some shoot and some melee. You just can't go with a Tzeentch/Nurgle army or a Khorne/Slaneesh army because they are ancients enemies.
I hope this help you understand.
Firstly, read the codex.. read it hard, because it's stupidly complicated.
Everyone else already got it right, but to clarify. There are two seperate possible nurgle army lists:
Nurgle Black Legion - You still can paint them as death guard if you want. This way, you use the basic chaos army list in the codex, but give your leader the mark of Nurgle. Your basic plague marine units will then count as troops, allowing you to take lots of them, but you can still use undivided units like obliterators.
Death Guard - Again, you can paint them any way you want. If you play a death guard list, you must only take units with the mark of nurgle, and units which can't have the mark, like bikes or obliterators, are restricted. In return, you get a few small advantages based around Nurgle's sacred number.
Most people would agree that the black legion list is more competative. However, it's also about theme and style. If you want a really nurgley themed list and don't want to use undivided units anyway, then death guard only really gives you advantages, however small they are. It's totally possible to build a hard-as-nails death guard list.
You CANNNOT mix the two.. So no free champions in a black legion army.
thanks thats helped loads
