Lo guys, im looking to start a nurgle army since I think they are very cool, and should be alot of fun to paint.
Now, im VERY new to WHFB and I honestly dont know where to start.
I would love some help building a list for 1000pts games.
PS. Units I would love to include.
Those are the coolest units imo, and I would love to build a list around them that would work atleast OK against most armys...
Btw, nurgle a good choice?
Edit: Friendly list
Thanks for your help. BYE!

Welcome Gammal. I myself am a nurgle player and play generally mono-nurgle, sometimes ill put khorne on marauder horsemen or slaanesh on a chariot, stuff like that. So yes nurgle is a fine choice. It sounds like you kind of want an infantry army with knight support on the flank? I know you said youre new to WHFB, but its really not that hard to figure out the basics.
Here an example of a 1000 pt army that would be good
1 Wizard lvl 2 w/ MoN(Mark of Nurgle), dispel scroll, and book of secrets. (he will have 5 dice to use, so use 2 dice to cast buboes and 3 on another spell) 190
Exalted Hero w/MoN,BSB, shield, flail, helm of many eyes 164
19 Marauders w/ MoN,shield,LA,FC 164
11 Chosen w/FC,banner of rage,great weapons?,favour of the gods 340
5 M.Horsemen w/flails 75
So I would put the wizard in with the marauders as kind of his bunker for a while, and put the bsb with the chosen. The chosen are killing machines with banner of rage and great weapons, and with your hero in there he has attacks strike first, he will hit them with 5 str 7 attacks being able to wipe out a good chunk of the front ranks, allowing your warriors to then follow with several str 6 attacks. As of right now you have 67 pts remaining. If you wanted to fit in knights, you could downgrade the chosen to warriors, remove the M. Horsemen and put in knights. Or you could put in some warhounds or something. This is a more infantry character heavy force but it should do well for you, something to build for. Cheers man, glad to have another Chaos Mortal Nurgle player.
Thanks alot m8! The list looks cool, the only problem I have are really with the M.horsemen.
ANd the marauder in general.
The foot troops are OK I guess, but I dont like the look of the horsemen at all!
Im looking for something as usefull to swap with them... The knight idea is cool, but I feel like the chosen unit is one of my favorites and would love to keep those.
So maybe I will try and fit some hounds in there, even thought I would like to just add another group of warriors AND knights . But that wont fit in a 1000pts army. At all ^^
You just have to make sure to have 2 core choices to have a legal list. Warhounds don't count as the minimum core choice, Marauder horsemen really are good support for your warriors, protecting their flanks or flanking a unit engaged with the warriors. It can be trouble filling all your core choices, especially if you just want to play with warriors!
By the way. Any chance of getting some help with a list without the marauders?
M. horsemen are ok I guess, since its only 1kpts
