[2000] - Death Guard: Competitive List

Post by XShadow » Sun Oct 15, 2017 3:19 am

Hello fellow miniwargamers! After lots if testing and list building I've come up with this list for competitive settings. I'll be using this next month at my local ITC. The basis of the list is my love for the new blightlord models. They are gorgeous. The plan is to have both squads drop in on each flank with the termie lord to harass backfield units or maybe a bit of AT with supercharged plasmas. They coukd also just be hopeful distraction "carnifexs" and take the heat off of Morty. The bloat drones are fast enough to keep up with Morty and greatly benefit from his warlord trait. The putrifier, foot lord, and PMs ride in the rhino as act as my "grenade" squad. What do you guys think? The list so far has yielded positive results.

Outrider detachment: 

Chaos lord - Bolt Pistol, Balesword 
Foetid Bloat Drone - 2 Plague Spitters and Plague Probe 
Foetid Bloat Drone - 2 Plague Spitters and Plague Probe 
Foetid Bloat Drone - 2 Plague Spitters and Plague Probe 

Vanguard Detachment: 
Chaos Lord in terminator armor - Bale Sword, Combi-Plasma 
5 Blightlord Terminators - 1 with Flail of Corruption, 1 with Reaper Autocannon and Bubonic Axe, Champion and the other two with Bubonic Axe and Combi-Plasma. 
5 Blightlord Terminators - 1 with Flail of Corruption, 1 with Reaper Autocannon and Bubonic Axe, Champion and the other two with Bubonic Axe and Combi-Plasma. 
Biologus Putrifier - Plague Bringer (to give him a bit more oomph in combat) 
Chaos Rhino 
7 Plague Marines - Bolters and Plague Knives, 1 Plasma Gun 

Auxiliary Super Heavy: 
Mortarion 

An alternitive list to this would be cutting Morty and adding in 3 Plagueburst Crawlers and babysitting them with the footlord and the helm relic.

Why not use the Lord of Contagion? He is just better.

Pretty sure the lord is there to reroll the ones on the plasmas.

As for the list, i like it.
Very offensive

Not sure about the foot slogger char. With the plague marines, and their rhino.
They have rapid fire on 18” after all.

Not sure what i would replce it with....

A terminator sorcerer if i could find the points. Or thypus

There are some really nice buffs, and morty wont hog them all

Ahh Sorry about that.

I just started using the forum, and all the posts are new to me.

I didnt notice the timestamp.

I might have ressurected a few others.

Ill pay more attention to that going onwards

Not sure about this list, I havent played the Blightlord Terminators but terms dont seem to do very well in competitive play in most scenarios. However the rest of your army looks really solid so I assume that the terminators will get to do their Lord's work without being targeted much which is precisely the kind of thing that maximizes their effectiveness.

I think it's a good list, let us know how it turns out.
