Sorry to make two separate threads for my armies, but as the two lists are different(for the most part...), I thought it was called for. If it isn't, however, I have no problem closing one or the other, and combining the two.

That said, here is my current take on a Khorne/Nurgle combo army at 1500 points. Please let me know what you think. Thanks again.

Herald of Nurgle-
Level 1
Palanquin
Noxious Vapours
Slime Trail

Herald of Nurgle-
Level 1
Staff of Nurgle

Herald of Khorne-
Juggernaut
Firestorm Blade
Armour of Khorne

20 Plaguebearers-
Musician
Plagueridden
Standard Bearer
Standard of Seeping Decay

15 Bloodletters-
Musician
Bloodreaper
Standard Bearer
Icon of Endless War

5 Flesh Hounds

2 Bloodcrushers

TOTAL-1500pts.

Hey, nice list but I have one main issue with it. You have two Nurgle Heralds, but only one unit to put them. I think the points spent of the second herald could be more valuable elsewhere i.e. another unit.

Hmm, that's a really good point, Nightsword, and I was/am a little concerned as to where said Herald is actually going to go. On the one hand I see him as necessary for added spell power, both offensively and defensively, but on the other I see him as a little lonely on the tabletop. I suppose I could chuck him in the same Plaguebearer unit as my Palanquin mounted one....

I would like to add some more troops though, but removing the second Nurgle Herald with the Staff of Nurgle leaves me a little light on magic and all the other strengths a nasty character like that adds. Hmmm, I guess it's something I'll have to think about.

If I DID remove him, any suggestions as to what I could replace him with?

No other thoughts at this point? Fair enough, as I'm sure by this point most folks are burnt out on looking at the endless amount of Daemon lists coming out.

I do wish I could at least squeeze a couple of bases of Nurglings in this list...it would just make it seem more right to me. Oh well, perhaps it's back to the drawing board time? I must say I do like the possibilities this list presents, and it could be a good staging point for me.

Good choice!

Herald of Nurgle-
Level 1
Staff of Nurgle

He'd probably be the Herald to drop, like you suggested.

Herald of Khorne-
Juggernaut
Firestorm Blade
Armour of Khorne

I would say go for Obsidian Armour only - the other things are unnecessary if you ask me :-) Besides, the Bloodletters benefit really well from the Hatred from Locus of Khorne.

20 Plaguebearers-
Musician
Plagueridden
Standard Bearer
Standard of Seeping Decay

I would suggest the other banner, as you add a Herald (with three attacks) on a palanquin (six attacks), so there should be a slight chance.

15 Bloodletters-
Musician
Bloodreaper
Standard Bearer
Icon of Endless War

I think you should drop the banner, as I think the two banners available to the 'Letters are a points sink...

5 Flesh Hounds

Nice. Too BAD they aren't fast cavalry anymore!!!!! Grrr..... :mad::mad::mad:

2 Bloodcrushers

I'm not hooked on these guys - haven't done well for me. I would only keep them if you keep your Herald on a Juggernaut!

TOTAL-1500pts.

At least 10 characters...

Excellent, thanks for the well thought-out and invaluable advice, StefDa. I'll take your comments into consideration and see what I can come up with.

One point, however, is the matter of dropping my second Nurgle Herald. I feel that it leaves me rather...vulnerable and weak in terms of magic, so I'm not sure what to do with that.

However, the thought occurs to me that maybe I could remove the Bloodcrushers and a few other things, and replace them with something a little cheaper. Then, I could possibly have two slightly smaller units of Plaguebearers, and manage to keep both Heralds...hmmm...I'll work on this one.
