Yes deep strike can be good and bad depending on the match up. I was talking about doing it to a static gun line army. Against a very mobile army Nurgle will just struggle no matter what. They are mostly all slow and purposeful so no very fast.

And yes I am so sick of seize the initiative. I lost a game at the ambassador just because he rolled a 6 before the game started. So stupid.


Seriously considering dropping it next time. It's kinda like: "lets get on with it already".

Another day and another list idea. This time all chaos marines and a little more competitive without being over the top.

Death Guard Vectorium (Super Formation)

Core
Chaos Warband
HQ
Lord, Terminator armor, chain fist, gift of mutation, combi melta, sigil of corruption, mark of nurgle

Elites
4 Terminators, 4 power axes, 2 combi meltas, Mark of Nurgle
Land Raider, dozer blade, dirge caster

Troops
10 Chaos Marines, Mark of Nurgle, 2 meltas, combi melta, rhino
10 Chaos Marines, Mark of Nurgle, 2 meltas, combi melta, rhino
10 Chaos Marines, Mark of Nurgle, 2 plasma, combi plasma, rhino

Fast Attack
5 Bikers, Mark of Nurgle, 2 meltas, power axe

Heavy Support
10 Havocs, Mark of Nurgle, 4 autocannons, Rhino
10 Havocs, Mark of Nurgle, 4 autocannons, Rhino

Auxiliary
1 Chaos Spawn, Mark of Nurgle


So this is almost an old school mech list. 5 rhinos and a land raider. I got the idea to build this army out of the betrayal of Calth box. I could use all 30k marines and paint it up pre heresy. I would need a few forge world bits like the bikes and the autocannons or I could just go 3rd party and buy some Kromlech bits.

I think your description of that new list is perfect - more competitive without being over the top.

I think it looks great and I'd be happy to be across the table from it at OFCC!

Seems fine to me. Very pedestrian. Mobile, tough and packs some punch. I feel like a Heldrake might be a good addition in place of the second Autocannon Havocs just so you have some presence in the skies and can reach out and touch someone. A little Ignores Cover never sucks no matter how you slice it. Aaron Bang rocks three Lamenter StormRavens so having nada to touch any of them but some auto cannons could be a bummer.

Not if I want to take super detachment. I have to take an auxiliary and its the cheapest one. The big detachment gives me reroll FnP rolls of 1 and stealth if I am more the 18" from the enemy. All for the cheap cost of a 36 point spawn. The warband gives me obsec and better rolls on the boon table.

Can't take a helldrake unless I take another formation. The warband doesn't have the option for one. Just lots of infantry.
