Hey Team, Love the deathguard, and love the plague marines. I have actually won a few local tournaments with them. If you’re open to a different view I propose this idea. 2 full units of poxwalkers, 1 20 man unit of plague marines with bubotic axes and plague knives. Take 2 princes and typhus as well as the plague surgeon for reroll ones on the marines. Then run your blight haulers. Arch contaminater on your prince with fugaris helmet. And his power being blades of putrification. The other prince give miasma to, and typhus takes putrecent vitality and blades as… Read more »

Unfortunately I don’t think Spiders list uses Fulgrim helm correctly. It only extends data sheet auras and doesn’t apply to Warlord trains I believe

When you compared plague marines to other armies based troops (aeldari, rubric marines/tzangors, plaguebearers) they aren’t cost effective with 0 invuln. Blightlaunchers are wonderful, coated correctly though. This cost problem seems to carry over to blightlords and deayhshroud, who get the invuln but lose on movement when compared to many other elite units. I was running myphitic blight haulers but since the plague marines are not efficient for cost and poxwalkers were over nerfed the cover save is useless.

Still not sure about MBH’s, I think I just prefer the Fetid Bloat-Drones to compliment the PBC’s if your not taking Morty that is. I think cover is pretty easy to find for the Marines anyway, and those 3 mortal wounds over several units add up to a very un-sexy tally in my experience over a game. I also personally quite like the Entropy cannon loadout, but then you want 3 of the PBC’s with a dedicated re-roll tower, and then I think the Chaos Lord with fugaris and Arch-Contaminator becomes interesting.

Such a shame terminators aren’t better. Deathshrouds are great models. I try to bring them, and sometimes they make it in and tear stuff up, but deepstriking in and not making that 9″ charge is really tough when you “only” have T5 and W2. As you guys have said, they should really get to ignore -1 AP shots for instance. And be W3?
