How do you deal with nurgle marked armies or plague marines? T5 is hard to bust with boyz since the turn after charge your only wounding on 6s, then they have both their power armor and feel no pain roll. On top of that the blight grenades cuts down on those crucial charging attacks by a lot. A hidden Nob/power klaw doesnt seem very efficient. Lets hear your tactics and comments/experience.

I always like this (which I stole from the GW site)
shoot the fighty stuff and fight the shooty stuff
Send in your Nobs unit...they should make short work of em. Or shoot em, I know we dont shoot too well but we do shoot a lot! They are certainly one of the toughest units in game. But nobs with a painboy and cybork bodies are no joke either.
Never let anybody tell you that Orks are bad at shooting. Hell, before the 5e Codex came out, Orks played "Guard" better than Guard did.
Shoota Boyz and Lootas, staples in any Dakka list, and both will make quick(er) work of T3-5 infantry. Concentrated high volume dakka will force enough saves that some are bound to fail.
Every mob that can have one, MUST have a Nob with PK and Bosspole, it's da law! PK Nobz don't care about T5, 3+ saves, or FNP.
If you fancy vehicles, Deff Rollas are Str10, also ignoring FNP. And Boomgun Wagons are just plain fun. And never underestimate Killa Kanz in CC. WS 2 still hits on a 4+ against most foes, and anything Str4 or under can't hurt them.
Just remember, Nurgle Marines cost more than their vanilla counterparts, which means there'll be fewer of them.
I've recently become a fan of this thing called Dubstep. And you should too.

Da Moo Kowz is da drinkinest Orks of dem all!
Powerfist is about the only thing that cuts through them with ease. Being double the strength and a power weapon it turns them to mush fairly quickly as they get neither armour save nor feel-no-pain. If you're having trouble maybe you're rolling badly, Don't have PK's or the squads you are attacking are too huge to make a discernable difference.
Deal with them in the same way I deal with any unit that's hard to kill like that. Make them roll save they will fail them eventually just keep making them roll saves. Like said above lootas would be a great way to do so.
i versed a nurgle army the other day even though i lost i know how to get them next time, shoot them a lot then mob them with plenty of boyz- but try and use killa kanz/ dreadnoughts as well if you have some, they really struggle to deal with them.
Mob them with PKs or shoot 'em, regular boyz just bounce off.

You really don't want to try and spam them to death with basic weaponry. That's absolutely catering to Plague Marine strong points. As others have cited, power weapons & combined attacks is one of the most popular ways for dealing with Plague Marines. It's also one of the most effective.
Spambot kill tally. . .337
Let's say you have a good squad of 10 lootas.
You roll a 3, meaning 2 shots each
20 shots, 6.66(I'll even round to 7 hitsfor ya), 7 hits, which means 6 of them wound.
6 wounds, nurgles have a 2/3 chance to save off their armor, meaning 2 wounds get through.
THEN FEEL NO PAIN, and look at that. Your 10 man squad of lootas just killed ONE man.
You, MUST MUST MUST use something that cuts their armor out of it. That'll not only deny them the armor save, but prevent them from using feel no pain.
