Festus the leechlord 185 points
15 Warriors of chaos with mark of nurgle with shields full command 300 points. (Festus will join this unit.)
4 Chaos trolls 180 points
4 Chaos Ogres with mark of nurgle chaos Armour Great weapons Full command 280 points
Chaos spawn 55 points
And that ladies and gentlemen comes to grand total of 1000 points spent exactly =3 Now i do love having Festus with chaos warriors just because they are immune to poison thanks to Festus and they regenerate. I had to down grade the trolls as my friend said i could use bile trolls from throne of chaos because not everyone has book which yeah is fair enough. And four chaos trolls with mutant regeneration should be fine. But what i like with this new list is i have really like buffed it up with monsters and and end of day this was my aim i wanted a list which combined my love of nurgle and monster creatures from darkest corners of world. Hence why i didn't take a load of marauders. They look to squishy for my liking. Soo other than that what do people think it? =D

theres a discussion heavily about this character in the main forum (its thread title is about marauders with GW) some like him some are less keen due to his weaknesses. its a personal choice really. he will make that warrior unit very good while hes alive.Heroes
Festus the leechlord 185 pointsas your rolling with a theme, i wont launch into the usual mark debate, MoN will work well against other core trash and with festus a great unit at the points level.15 Warriors of chaos with mark of nurgle with shields full command 300 points. (Festus will join this unit.)great stuff, but beware their stupidity problems obviously.4 Chaos trolls 180 pointsworse than trolls in nearly every way, this unit could well be replaced by another unit of trolls. 280 points for what your getting just feels like a rip off to me. points saved could invest in more trolls and some hounds to help you with match ups.4 Chaos Ogres with mark of nurgle chaos Armour Great weapons Full command 280 pointsbasic spawn arnt great, they can be great as hold ups and distractions but beware their randomness.Chaos spawn 55 points
your quite low on models, 25 total for 1k is asking for trouble and you general is fragile. id lose the ogres as said and spawn and try to work in some more meat.
OMG Restrain yourself and that Submit Button! sweet jesus!
Ahaha I have to agree with talismanic on that one! It does bug out from time to time though...anyways, on to the list. If I'm to make one important suggestion, it will be this, drop the ogres and get dragon ogres, or even knights, anything other than ogres. They're just not all that great sadly, it's a really large investment into something that isn't going to even break even in most cases.
drop the ogres also drop the spawn. hes not gonna do much alone. idk what id suggest be done with the points, but the army definitely needs bulk. and not ogre bulk
Shields + anythingbuttzeench = not so hot.
AhW + Poison is awesome
Drop the ogres for more warriors and maybe a magic banner (rage+AHW = 4 attacks each, poison making 1/6 wound automatically).
I would also bring some dogs, just for the dummy drops.
Plus your opponent will crap their pants when they see the mountain of dice the unit generates. That in itself makes them worth bringing.
I would bulk them up to 17 and give them additional hand weapons and +1ld banner15 Warriors of chaos with mark of nurgle with shields full command 300 points. (Festus will join this unit.)They are ok, I think they are abit risky without a BSB4 Chaos trolls 180 pointsI would actually swap these for a unit of Marauders with great weapons or flails (flails being slightly more fluffy)4 Chaos Ogres with mark of nurgle chaos Armour Great weapons Full command 280 pointsThey are pretty bad, if you want it because its cool fun thing then fine, if not invest the points in something else like some chaos hounds.Chaos spawn 55 points
