Debating between two lists
« on: February 15, 2020, 09:35:36 AM »
So I'm beginning to collect my death guard army.  I've settled on two choices of 2k lists.  My army goal is to have a low model count and target saturation. Which is split between flying in your DPs and a strong backline with heavy firepower. One list is more heavily themed in this way with mortarion, the other has more dreads and stronger troop choices.

I'll likely collect the models to field both lists and more eventually but need to pick one to focus on for now. So here are the lists..


++ Super-Heavy Auxiliary Detachment (Chaos - Death Guard) [24 PL, 470pts] ++

+ Lord of War +

Mortarion [24 PL, 470pts]

++ Battalion Detachment +5CP (Chaos - Death Guard) [64 PL, 1,035pts] ++

+ HQ +

Daemon Prince of Nurgle [9 PL, 180pts]: 1. Revoltingly Resilient, 4. Blades of Putrefaction, Malefic talon, The Suppurating Plate, Warlord, Wings

Daemon Prince of Nurgle [9 PL, 180pts]: Daemonic axe, Wings

Daemon Prince of Nurgle [9 PL, 180pts]: Malefic talon, Wings

Hellforged Contemptor Dreadnought [10 PL, 141pts]: Butcher cannon, Combi-bolter, Havoc launcher, Hellforged deathclaw

++ Total: [117 PL, -1CP, 1,999pts] ++


And the second


++ Battalion Detachment +5CP (Chaos - Death Guard) [68 PL, 1,023pts] ++

+ HQ +

Daemon Prince of Nurgle [9 PL, 180pts]: 1. Revoltingly Resilient, 6. Curse of the Leper, Malefic talon, The Suppurating Plate, Warlord, Wings

+ Elites +

Hellforged Contemptor Dreadnought [10 PL, 144pts]: 2x Butcher cannon, Havoc launcher

++ Spearhead Detachment +1CP (Chaos - Death Guard) [60 PL, 972pts] ++

++ Total: [128 PL, 1,995pts] ++


Psychic powers are something I'm still deciding for who gets what, the idea is basically though keep a guy in the back for the re rolls while the DPs rush up and do damage.

4ish weeks with no reply,

Damn this forum is either dead or dieing. :'(

Both are fine, but i'd probably go for the one with the three DPs, just for rule of cool. - But it won't make you any friends.

I'd be more than happy to give feedback, but I really don't know anything about chaos. So I cannot really comment unless you wanted some uninformed advice ;D.
