A Nurgle List for 6th Edition


With all the recent rumours about allies, I thought one of the obvious starting points for chaos players to consider is an "Armoured Epidemius" list.  Mixing the advantages of chaos space marines and other chaos essentials to maximize the count, this is the first list that I've been tempted to put in to play and experiment with once the new rules hit.
1500 points of Nurgle Allies:

Daemons:
HQ: Epidemius (110 points)
Troops: 10 Plaguebearers with an instrument of chaos (155 points)

Chaos Space Marines:
HQ: Daemon Prince, Mark of Nurgle, Wings, Doombolt (160 points)
Troops: 5 plague marines, 1 plague champion, 1 melta gun, 1 flamer (170 points)

Troops: 5 plague marines, 1 plague champion, 1 melta gun, 1 flamer (170 points)


Troops: 5 plague marines, 1 plague champion, 2 plasma guns (185 points)
Dedicated Transport: Rhino with havoc launcher (50 points)
Dedicated Transport: Rhino with havoc launcher (50 points)
Dedicated Transport: Rhino with havoc launcher (50 points)

Fast Attack: Blight Drone (125 points)
Fast Attack: Blight Drone (125 points)
Heavy Support: Vindicator with Daemonic Possession (a Nurgle Possessing daemon, of course! hehehe...) (145 points)

Whilst the vindicator might be disallowed (replace with 2 obliterators instead!), the list is gunning to get the count of Epidemus up as fast as possible (assuming that he comes in in the "first wave" ... but that's going to be an interesting interplay between chaos marines and daemons in itself: can marine icons be used by chaos daemons for instance?).  The blight drones provide a much needed fast attack slot option for this army and the daemon prince is there to both distract and get rid of enemy vehicles.  The load out of the plague marines is one of my preferred options, providing them with tactical flexibility, backed up with mobility in the rhinos.

If I recall correctly, Daemons can use CSM icons for Deep Striking in Apocalypse games currently, so that might work.

I would say this list would work well, assuming blight drones are now legal via FW inclusion, which I'm not sure about. If that is the case, the 2 I have in the mail will get use right away!

If this is the case that my deamons & chaos marines can finally stand side by side on the table its gonna be off the wall!!!!

Ian -- at the moment, FW can be used by consent of both players involved. I can see that changing though.

lil will and Anton -- your sentiments are shared!
