With the new edition of Warhammer, I have decided to start a new pure Nurgle WoC army. I figured I'd get an opinion on the list as I've never made a Chaos army before. here we go:

Chaos Lord
Mark of Nurgle
Chaos Runesword
Ironcurse Icon
Shield
Daemonic Mount
Talisman of Preservation
390

Chaos Sorcerer, Level 2
Mark of Nurgle
Infernal Puppet
Talisman of Protection
190

30 Chaos Marauders
Mark of Nurgle
Shields
Full Command
190

15 Chaos Warriors
Nurgle
Shields
Full Command
Festering Shroud
325

15 Chaos Warriors
Nurgle
Shields
Full Command
Banner of Eternal Flame
310

6 Chaos Trolls
270

5 Chaos Knights
Nurgle
Command
Blasted Standard
320

Army Total 1995

The idea is to put the Chaos Lord into the Troll unit for a fearsome monstrous unit. This is the only unit I can really see as being substandard, but I think it should be fun and do some damage if I can keep them away from fire. :(

chaos lord can't join a troll unit, you should put him in the knight unit.

He can join the trolls, why should he not be able to do so?

On the list: The Ironcurse Icon seems to be redudant. The lord has a better ward save and the trolls regenerate. Of course, if you often play against dwarfs with flaming cannons / boltthrowers, the icon could be useful.
The marauders IMO need light armour when you want to field them for SCR purposes.

I like it. Nurgle is awesome. One thing I think would compliment an all nurgle force is the new shadow spell miasma to manipulate WS when it's advantageous to your marked units. If you want to keep everyone marked Nurgle I think you can do it with a BoS on someone, an exalted or a chosen champion maybe? I am trying to figure it out myself for a list currently.

I like the army, very fluffy but it has some minor issues. Here are the changes I would suggest. My reasoning is that if your going to use the Mark of Nurgle use it in the most effective means possible, remember if they fail their Fear or Terror test, against a unit with the Mark of Nurgle they can't make attacks back at the model or unit with the Mark of Nurgle.

This modified list has only two units that don't cause fear, but you can adjust that with the following stuff.

I would suggest that you try to find some way to get a BSB, I would suggest dropping the Marauders for it, or changing the lord down to a hero, and making the Sorcerer a Sorcerer Lord since that will help with your magic defense as well.

Chaos Lord
Mark of Nurgle
Chaos Runesword
Shield
Daemonic Mount
Talisman of Preservation

30 Chaos Marauders (6 x 5, I am assuming?)

12 Chaos Warriors (6 wide of 25mm, is better due to extra attacks.)

14 Chaos Warriors (Set this way for point reasons.)
Mark of Nurgle
Shields + Halberds

6 Chaos Ogres (3 x 2, Fear + the mark of Nurgle and has plenty of attacks.)
Mark of Nurgle
Chaos Armor
Banner + Musician
300

5 Chaos Knights
Mark of Nurgle
Banner & Musician

295

Army Total: 1997

The new Charmed shield I see as kind of a no-brainer in the list, since it is cheaper than a normal shield :wtf:
