3 beast of nurgle 300 pts

2000pt
6 pd
4 dispel
now i know alot of you are gonna say "take a GD" & i'll admit that i was tempted. yet in a 2000 pt game i find using 4 heralds more point friendly & making 1 of them a bsb even better. My idea was to put the beast in front of my bsb / plaguebearers ,with the letters to each side,my general will follow behind(waiting for a nice charge),the flamers will take a far flank(& do what they do best) ,while my flying chariots will just harass with shooting & magic(also looking for a good flank charge on engaged units).
Will i think its a balanced fun looking army what say you all???????

its a bit low on troops, even for a daemon army.

im going to field my core in large, healthy units of 15 to 20. also you cpuld make the herald of nurgle into a wizard so that you get that extra dd

I agree with isidril. My mate who uses a deamon army uses around 60 core deamons. (bloodletters, horrors) my opinion is that you need a solid amount of core to win any game. Unless your gonna go down the beardy road (But thats lame!) a deamon army doesnt really need 4 heros i mean that takes up nearly half your army, and 4 heros in the army arnt going to take half your opponents army out (unless theres a decent lord in there. Cough, Bloodthirster, cough)

Alright, I kinda liked your first list a bit more actually. Here are some changes I would suggest, your heroes are more in the magic department, but all you have are 6 PD. Also, you don't have Flames of Tzeentch on either hero, which is a very fun gift. Make the unit of plague bearers FC, while giving them the banner of Seeping Decay, combined with a Herald with Lvl 1 and Staff of Nurgle,that would be fun. I would also make the units of bloodletters units 12 of with no command options, ranked 6x2. Also. try to get 6 flamers if you can, they rock.

These lists are very similar to my last one (http://warseer.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2745775&postcount=4) excluding the beasts.
your second list is a bit better except that you can't really depend on your tzeentch heralds for the flank/rear charges, with that in mind you seem to lack a bit of speed for out maneuvering your opponents which is paramount for an army which doesn't rely on numbers, Maybe a swap of the beasts for some seekers/fiends + some furies for wizard/artillery hunting?

wow that sounds good!!!

hroes are there to help the units not win the battle for you. unless its a monster. remember that the only true rank and file units that the daeoms have are the core as all the others are monsters or cavalary type or flyers.
