Hey,

fluffy or unfluffy for a pure deathguard army

- Daemon princes
- lords
- sorcerers
- chosen
- terminators
- possessed
- dreadnoughts
- normal marines
- death guard
These all have, or can get, Marks/ Icons of Nurgle. All good.

- transports
- bikers
- raptors
Fast DG Units were traditionally limited to Rhino-mounted DG squads.
Unfortunately, in the Gavdex, DG Rhinos are not a Fast option any more.
DG mobility now depends on Transports and Special Movement Modes (DS, Inf, etc).

- havocs
- oblits
- vindicator
- defiler
- land raider
-daemons
DG Havoks used only 'Special' or Assault Weapons, not heavies.
Preds and Land Raiders largely helped to make up for this fact.
The Vin's not fluffy, per se, but Mortarion would have loved them.
The Defiler is more rightly a Black Legion than a Death Guard toy.
And Plaguebearers are naturally right at home in Papa's Playhouse.

- chosen(I they used to be... but infiltrating DG....:X)
- terminators

- normal marines (If i remember right all the DG became Plague marines...)
- death guard:p
- transports
- bikers (about as fluffy as Abaddon's undies)
- raptors
- havocs (Only if you use special weapons)
- oblits
- vindicator
- defiler
- land raider
-daemons(lesser/ greater.)

Ok the red is unfluffy, the green is fluffy, and the blue is impartial.

In addition i think they used preds.... but i cant remember.

@Archnomad,

your incorrect about the terminators, according to their IA article the DG legion made heavy use of the terminator suits.
Also we have Typhus, captain of the first company of the DG clad in terminator armour.

- Daemon princes
Yes, of course. There is a model specifically for it. Seems fine to me.

- lords

Hmm. I would say less than usual. Nurgle seems more of a Sorcerer type of guy.

- sorcerers
Yup. Typhus is a psycher, besides disease seems to be quite magic.

- chosen
No reason not to... I think Nurgle would have special followers... The thing is, perhaps they would be more terminatory. Instead of chosen, I would go for termies or deathguard.

- terminators
Yes, very. They have the whole toughness thing. Seems logical. Also each one of them could have a bit of the destroyer hive.

- possessed
As always, yes. Perhaps not very nurgly, but a person can be possessed by nurgle daemons.

- dreadnoughts

Same logic as all vehicles. Slap tentacles onto it and it counts as a nurgle thing.

- normal marines

No; all deathguard are plague.

- death guard
No, Nurgle would never use marines specifically dedicated to him.;)

- transports
Slap a slimy thing onto it and sure.

- bikers
As cool at T6 is, I do not think it would be allowed. Deathguard and Nurgle are generally slow.

- raptors
No. Raptors are certainly not nurgle.

- havocs
Nah. Heavy weapons are not deathguard.

- oblits

Yes. Marine-warp mix is very nurgle. Heavy weapons certainly, but it seems fair enough.

- vindicator
If you slap slimy stuff onto it...

- defiler
Same as above, although it seems to go against the Death guard type, close combat machine I mean.

- land raider
Some Nurglings on it and sure. I can see a deathguard using this vehicle.

-daemons(lesser/ greater.)
Yes. -_-
