    wow this is a horde of marching decay!

    the problem here is the total lack of flexibility and the slow movement...you could easily be gunned off before you come close to the enemy, or just overwhelmed in cc by numbers;
    remember you are fielding 3000 points and 97 models!

    the nurglings and spawns should prevent flanking well, but the main concern is that your units do not have a competitive cc resolution, and also are not meant for massive cc usage: i mean, in a 3000 point game i'd expect to face many enemy units of 30-40 models with a hero and full command, and i don't know if the plaguebearers can stand up to it.

    also, i would add some flyers (20-30) to prevent the "firefield syndrome" from cannons, gunners etc and to provide some flanking to give you some better cc resolution

    cheers!

    -p.s.
    did you consider using a daemonic legion?
    it could give you a good ward save, command groups for units, and some nice new units to use, to break the monotony! bye!

    OK I changed the list around some.

    Lords:

    Great Unclean One (In a unit of Plaquebearers)

    Daemon Prince (In a unit of Plaquebearers)
    Mark of Nurgle
    Cloud of Flies
    Stream of Corruption
    Plague Flail
    Diabolic Splendor

    Heroes:

    Sorcerer of Chaos
    Level 2
    Mark of Nurgle
    2x Dispel Scroll

    Core
    :

    5 Nurglings

    40 Plaquebearers (Great Unclean One)

    30 Plaquebearers (Daemon Prince)

    17 Chaos Furies

    Rare:

    Spawn of Chaos
    Beast of Nurgle

    Spawn of Chaos
    Beast of Nurgle

    Total: 2990

    I wasn't thinking about shooting because of the Swarm of Flies ability, but maybe I was putting to much faith in it.

    I removed a unit of Plaquebearers and added 17 flyers.

    Also should I drop the Sorcerer and use those points to make my Daemon Prince a mage and add more Chaos Furies?

    I wanted to make a Nurgle army because I tend towards to the more 'sickening' type things in any game I play. So I like the monotony of this army lol.

    hmmm i see forgot some things...

    first of all - the daemonic gifts of the prince exceed 100 points, to be exact you are giving him 105 points of gifts

    second - the prince is a flying model and flying models cannot join any unit

    third - i miss the meaning of the sorcerer...you're right, you could give two magic levels to the prince, three are better for the extra dispel dice.

    provided these suggestions, i think this list is going to have some big trouble because two large blocks of infantry against a whole army -sorry to say that- have already lost before the game begins

    you should try to split up the models as much as you can; you should use the superiority of daemons to your full advantage : many small units that force the enemy to take MANY fear tests and that surround him.

    and again i suggest to switch to a daemonic legion - that way you could add plagueriders and chariots

    bye!

    Opppsssssss I missed those things as well. >.< My downloaded Hordes of Chaos book has small text hence why I missed the flyer rule on the Prince. Math has never been my strong suit.


    Lords:

    Great Unclean One (In a unit of Plaquebearers)

    Daemon Prince
    Level 3
    Mark of Nurgle
    Cloud of Flies
    Stream of Corruption
    Diabolic Splendor

    Core
    :

    5 Nurglings

    25 Plaquebearers (Great Unclean One)

    15 Plaquebearers

    15 Plaquebearers

    15 Plaquebearers

    10 Chaos Furies

    10 Chaos Furies

    Rare:

    Spawn of Chaos
    Beast of Nurgle

    Spawn of Chaos
    Beast of Nurgle

    Total: 2930

    I think I may have lost count doing the math.
