1500pts The Darkmakers


For over a year now I’ve planned on doing an undead army for 40k using the Nurgle rules originally to have ‘Nurgle’s Rot’ count for them sucking the life out of everything close by. But after hearing about the new even more zombie like ‘feel no pain’ rule in the more recent edition, I’ve decided to return to the idea so have a look at this list and tell me what you think?


HQ
165 - Deamon Prince: Wings, Mark of Nurgle and Nurgle’s Rot

165 - Deamon Prince: Wings, Mark of Nurgle and Nurgle’s Rot
(These guys purpose is to one: scare my opponent and seek out stuff my troops are unable to handle themselves that and they draw fire away from the Rhinos, I’m still thinking about conversions)

TROOPS
295 - Darkmaker Raban: Champion with Powerfist, 9 Undead (Death Guard) Marines 1 Plasma Gun, 1 Melta Gun 7 with Boltguns all with close combat weapon, bolt pistol, Krak and Frag Grenades, Fearless and Feel No Pain!
50 - Raban’s Deathwagon (Rhino): Extra Armour.

295 - Darkmaker Zaceria: Champion with Powerfist, 9 Undead (Death Guard) Marines 1 Plasma Gun, 1 Melta Gun 7 with Boltguns all with close combat weapon, bolt pistol, Krak and Frag Grenades, Fearless and Feel No Pain!
50 - Zaceria’s Deathwagon (Rhino): Extra Armour.
(These guys drive forward as much as possible using available cover and my deamon princes as a distraction before opening up on the enemy they have two different weapons because I needed to free up points for my defiler, they are basically Undead Ultramarines and most of you will agree that feel no pain suits them)

277 - Darkmaker Tru’kai: Champion Sorcerer with Power Weapon and Bolt Pistol, 9 Death Spirits (Thousand Sons) all with Mark Of Tzeentch, Inferno Bolts, Sorcerer Commands, Slow and Purposeful and Fearless!
50 - Tru’kai’s Deathwagon (Rhino): Extra Armour.
(A recent edition to my idea is using dark angel miniatures to create pre heresy marines or something similar looking and paint them up like the army of the dead from Lord Of The Rings the 4+ Invulnerable and 3AP representing the fact they are… well ghostly, Of course they’ll support the death guard units but at the same time stay at a save distance)

HEAVY SUPPORT
150 - The Collector (Defiler): Battle Cannon, Reaper Auto Cannon, Heavy Flamer, Deamonic Possession, Smoke Launchers, Fleet Of Foot.
(Support fire, I plan to convert it so it is like a massive Pentient Engine but with a coffin instead of a person on the front and a large container on its back to collect dead bodies for use later it’s basic fluff for the army's background)

Total: 1497
Numbers: 32(4)

I hope when the new Deamon codex comes out I can break out my masses of plague zombies from eye of terror and use them as plague bearers.

You have the coolest army ideas.

I would say that this list looks pretty good, however, you are low on anti-tank.

I would say switch one of the daemon princes for a predator.

Otherwise it looks good.

I wouldn't suggest mixxing Plasma guns and melta's. Pick one and stick with it for the squad. I like the melta's better myself, but with Rhino's it's kinda a toss up.

I've redone the list tell me what you think and what unit i should choose out the three at the bottom?


----------

HQ
160 - Deamon Prince Sharazad: Wings, Mark of Nurgle and Doombolt.
(Basic Prince tactics use cover to hide him from heavy weapons and close in for the kill and likely draw fire away from the rhinos)

TROOPS
290 - Darkmaker Rokhan: Champion with Powerfist, 9 Undead (Death Guard) Marines, 2 Melta Guns, 7 with Boltguns all with close combat weapon, bolt pistol, Krak and Frag Grenades, Fearless and Feel No Pain!
50 - Raban’s Deathwagon (Rhino): Extra Armour.

300 - Darkmaker Zaceria: Champion with Powerfist, 9 Undead (Death Guard) Marines, 2 Plasma Guns, 7 with Boltguns all with close combat weapon, bolt pistol, Krak and Frag Grenades, Fearless and Feel No Pain!
50 - Zaceria’s Deathwagon (Rhino): Extra Armour.
(These guys drive forward as much as possible using available cover and my deamon prince as a distraction before opening up on the enemy

219 - Darkmaker Tru’kai: Champion Sorcerer with Power Weapon and Bolt Pistol, 9 Death Spirits (Thousand Sons) all with Mark Of Tzeentch, Inferno Bolts, Sorcerer Commands, Slow and Purposeful and Fearless!
50 - Tru’kai’s Deathwagon (Rhino): Extra Armour.
(This unit’s role is to support the two Death Guard units)

HEAVY SUPPORT
150 - Defiler: Battle Cannon, Reaper Auto Cannon, Heavy Flamer, Deamonic Possession, Smoke Launchers, Fleet Of Foot.
(Support fire while advancing)

And which of the following?
230 - Terminator Squad: 4 Terminators, 2 with Powerfists 2 with Power Weapons all with combi bolters, Icon of Nurgle and Champion with Powerfist.
(Deep strike where needed and cause havoc)
-- or --
240 - Chaos Land Raider: Deamonic Possession
Replacing one of the rhinos and giving me some long range firepower but leaving me with 40pts to spend elsewhere, suggestions?
-- or --
230 - Raptor Squad: 7 Raptors with Icon Of Nurgle and 1 Champion with Powerfist.
(Support the Deamon Prince’s advance or the other units)

So what do you think?
