Ard Boyz list?

Might just throw down with Daemons. I think I can borrow most of the bits and be ready for the coming week. I just need to take the day off from work damnit hehe. Damned working Saturdays... It is mucho poopie. But I get to work 4 10 hr days and have 3 days off to mess around. But hell, here is the list I am messing list.

HQ: Bloodthirster, Unholy Might
Pts: 270 X 2 = 540
Troops: Plaguebearers (10)
Pts: 150 X 2 = 300
Troops: Plaguebearers (10), Icon of Chaos
Pts: 175 X 2 = 350
Elites: Flamers of Tzeentch (6)
Pts: 210
Elites: Fiends of Slaanesh (5)
Pts: 150 X 2 = 300
Heavy: DP, Mark Nurgle, Noxious Touch, Unholy Str, Cloud of Flies, Breath of Chaos, Daemonic Flight, Iron Hide
Pts: 265 X 3 = 795
Total: 2495
Split I want to throw down first - Icon Plague Bearers x 2, 2 Bloodthirster, 2 DP's vs. 2 Plague Bearers, 1 DP, 2 Fiends, 1 Flamers

Killpoints: 12 Scoring Troops: 4

Method is Plague Bearers hit and go after objectives, hide out to keep from getting killed, and otherwise just be a nuisance. Might be worth it. I think Nurgle DP's last longer, just due to needing 6's to take wounds from Bolters/bolt stuff/etc. But yeah.

And here is an all Nurgle list.

HQ: Ku'Goth
Pts: 300
HQ: Epidemus
Pts: 110
Troops: Plague Bearers (15), Icon of Chaos
Pts: 250 X 4 = 1000
Elites: Beasts of Nurgle (4)
Pts: 140 X 2 = 280
Heavy: DP, Mark Nurgle, Noxious Touch, Unholy Str, Cloud of Flies, Breath of Chaos, Daemonic Flight, Iron Hide
Pts: 265 X 3 = 795

Pts: 2485

Kill Points: 11 Scoring: 4
Same list with upgrades that I normally play. They stick around and there are a ton of wounds on the table at any point. Ku'Goth seems like he should be fun and a huge fat annoyance. I almost have this list, just need to "create" beasts of Nurgle. Woot here come some green stuffed Spawns!!! Woot woot. I might play this, since I think it will just be more fun. A 7 LR list would suck, thus the upgrade to Str 6 on the DP's. I think this will put a hurt on any horde based army, but will see.

Oh check out the link to the right, Grey Death's Paint Corps. I just posted a how too for the new plastic Nob from the new WD. Check it out and tell me what you think.

So are there going to be any events down in Texas next year? I'm more and more disinterested in going to Adepticon lol.

I'm thinking the DP's are a bit expensive. In my use of all nurgle, i really haven't been able to justify the cost of the wings vs more bodies of PB's.

Most of the time I have found that there is really nothing else to help with the Daemons. You need wings to help get to vehicles that can cause you loses in fifth edition. I am writing up a review for the GT and you can see that the biggest issue is that vehicles were pushing me off objectives. 2 games I would have won if I could have had some way to take down vehicles. Also this is just a straight nurgle list, so I don't want to throw in any Tzeentch or Soul Grinders etc.

And we are hoping to get some kind of tournament going in Austin. It is a cool town, fairly easy to get too and the hotels and food are cheap. Plus we have 100+ people in town that throw down with 40k and fantasy, plus we have the surrounding areas in Texas that can easily get enough players to fulfill the minimum to have a successful tournament. I will be pushing for it and most likely helping heh.

Good list but Kugath is a bit expensive imho and a great unclean on costs half the price even if he does get pie plate.The main problem is you're missing the best unit for this type of army, NURGLINGS!With epidemus thats 3 attacks ws2 wounding on 2's and no saves!AWESOME!
