Welcome to Librarium Online!
My friend plays nurgle quite often and that toughness 5 means that my regular slugga boys are quite useless. Is there any way to design an army to counter his Nurgle terror?
Thanks for any help in advance
Power Claws work just as well... outfit the nob w/ a power claw and that should insure victory. Plague Marine squads are at max usually 14 (but more likely 7 strong). Also try burnas but the 6 to wound required hampers their effectiveness somewhat. Sure you need a 6 to wound vs. them but they are much less numerous than you are used to.
What's worse are the Nurgle cultist armies with the plague zombies. They are like orks, but no choppas, ws 3, and one less attack. However, they have a 4+ save and are fearless. Then when you charge them the basilisks and defilers guess right on top of you and annihilate your squads. And you still cant leave combat because of the f&*(&^()ing plague zombies.
Another good unit is Skarboyz, the extra strength is a big help.
Kans and dreads also add an excellent choice when facing the rotten minions of Nurgle.
