This is a first attempt at a nurgle demon list and what I would potentially buy for the army. I don't have any of the models yet.

Herald of Nurgle-240
Lvl 1 upgrade
Noxious Vapours

21 Plaguebearers-295
Icon of Eternal Virulence

20 Plaguebearers-258

3 Nurglings- 105

Beast of Nurgle-100

total points= 998

Well, I'm hoping I can grind down the foe long enough with 2 blocks of plaugue bearers and hunt warmachines with nurglings. Beasts of nurgle can do their thing... I'm thinking about switching the lvl 1 wizard upgrade for noxious vapor and nurgles rot or something, but id like to have a little bit of magic... Also if someone could suggest some ideas for plaguebearers and a palanquin conversions it'd be very much appreciated =)

Unless you really love nurlge and simply NEED a mono god army dedicated to that god, I would urge you to reconsider. Nurgle was badly nerfed in 8th and there are much much better choices in the DoC army book... in fact i would say that anything but nurlge is a better choice.

Other then that i think the list looks pretty good. And even though nurgle may be worse now than they used to be, they still arent all bad.

if buy better options in 8th you mean mono tzeentch than yes. your army has no general good sir. bsb=no general

i would try to go with some bloodletters a fairly large unit with a herald will bash through alot. 1 rank with support attack and the front rank with hatred and killing blow will hurt alot
and they got 4+ward against magic

I would recommend thinking about 'what' you are going to win combat with.

Beasts of Nurgle in the flanks do that well with the core battle line (plaguebeaerers) holding up the centre.

Nurgle doesn't 'suck' now but they lost the stacked saves.
