View Full Version : 1000 Nurgle Daemons army: Over the top?

Hey all,

Just picked up the daemons book today and am thinking up some lists. I'm by no means a powergamer, and I do not want to be fielding an army that is point and click, and can't be beaten. I've been told that playing a one god Daemon army is a significant consession(depending on the god in question), and wanted to know what people thought of this little starter list:


Herald of Nurgle: lv.1 wizard, staff of nurgle, palanquin. (265)

Core Units:

15 Plaguebearers: Musician, Standard bearer. (198)
15 Plaguebearers: Musician, Standard bearer. (198)
5 Furies: (60)
5 Furies: (60)

Special Units:

3 Nurglings: (105)
3 Nurglings: (105)

Problems I can see with this army is a distinct lack of magic defence, as I have 3 DD, and no scrolls, and it is rather slow and plodding list, aside from the furies that is!:D

Seems fair enough, though I voted total cheese because I just felt like it.
It could potentially be a hard list, what with all of those high(er) toughness models. Perhaps make the herald a lvl 2 wizard? Are you ever planning on using Epidemus as you progress your army?

thanks for the reply Keetoowah, though it kind of defeats the purpose of the pole if you don't vote for what you think the list is right?:eyebrows:

Sorry if I missed it, but I only see the option for lv.1 wizard upgrade in the herald of nurgle entry, so do you think 2 cheap Lv.1 heralds would be a better option?

I don't take special characters as a rule, so no, I will not be taking Epidimius.

yep you can only have level 1 on a nurgle herald
doing a small nurgle daemons is quite hard as plaugebeares arn't realy worth it with out the herald, there for I'd drop the paladin and maybe a unit of furys and get a herald for each unit, even if its just a bacic one

and 3DD at 1000 points should be fine with high T and regenrate, just rember to consentrate on stoping flaming spells
