Goatboy’s 40K: List Armageddon – Nurgle & the Magic Princes

5 Minute Read

Goatboy here again with more Friday lists.  This time I have two for you to choose from – that both worship the powers of CHAOS!

Sorry folks for the lack of article on Monday.  I was getting back from the LVO that day so it was a bit hard to write something up while getting home and helping with the two kiddos.  Still there was no way I was going to leave you hanging without a Friday list post.  Last week I posted my LVO list and overall I did not do too bad.

Canada – kicking my LVO butt – with a pleasant smile!

I went 4-2 with a loss to a normal Ynarri/Eldar build and a cool AM build.  Both were piloted by Canadians who were rather pleasant to play with.  Joe and Shayne were their names and both of those guys gave me a hell of a good game as well as a beating.  Still I was looking at a “win” in my blackest of hearts with a 3-3 record – so going 4-2 means I did not do too bad.  Overall the army did alright – but it sure didn’t feel very insano Goatboy like.  Thus the following two lists I want to present to you.

List 1 – Nurgly Knights

First – let’s go with a small RTT/Do Dumb stuff style list.  I really like the idea of a small, manageable list that can put out enough damage to cause opponents to question my commitment to FW models.  I like not having to worry about bad psychic phases (let me tell you how many times Ahriman dropped the ball this weekend) plus hitting on 2’s with most things seems pretty good.  The list is also very Assault Heavy and shooting heavy at the same time.  Enough chatter – let’s throw it out there.

(I plan on having all my lists built like the new ITC format – its easy and allows events to actually generate good data for things like – hey is this model too good and maybe this unit sucks?)

Super Heavy Detachment – 5CP –  [75pl, 1104pts]

Faction: Renegade Knights

-LoW-
Renegade Knight [25pl, 368pts] Reaper Chainsword, Thunderstrike Gauntlet, Heavy Stubbier, Ironstorm Missile Pod
Renegade Knight [25pl, 368pts] Reaper Chainsword, Thunderstrike Gauntlet, Heavy Stubbier, Ironstorm Missile Pod
Renegade Knight [25pl, 368pts] Reaper Chainsword, Thunderstrike Gauntlet, Heavy Stubbier, Ironstorm Missile Pod

Vanguard Detachment – 1CP – [64pl, 884pts]

Faction: Death Guard

-HQ-
Chaos Lord [5pl, 82pts] Combi-Bolter, Balesword, Warlord – Rotten Constitution, Relic – The Plate

-Elites-
Helforged Contemptor Dreadnought [10pl, 138pts] Butcher Cannons X 2, MoN
Helforged Contemptor Dreadnought [10pl, 138pts] Butcher Cannons X 2, MoN
Helforged Contemptor Dreadnought [10pl, 138pts] Butcher Cannons X 2, MoN

-Heavy-
Helforged Deredeo Dreadnought [14pl, 198pts] Butcher Cannon Array, Greater Havoc Launcher, Twin Heavy Bolter, MoN
Helforged Deredeo Dreadnought [14pl, 198pts] Butcher Cannon Array, Greater Havoc Launcher, Twin Heavy Bolter, MoN

1996pts – 9CP – 138PL

This is just a big pile of dumb as it has the Renegade Knights push forward, charge, and get into trouble.  The longer ranged Firepower is there to knock anything down and hopefully keep everyone playing honest.  It also has 5 Mortar like effects with the Greater Havoc Launcher and the Ironstorm Missile Pod.  This is especially needed for this pesky things hiding from your damaging touch.  This will definitely do ok locally but will drop a game or two in a big GT.  But maybe you will get lucky pushing your giant Robots around.

List 2 – Daemon Prince Pajama Party

Finally we have a rework on a list I’ve theory hammered a bit.  I am a huge fan of Daemon Princes so finding a way to get a lot of them to work well together might be a powerful thing.  Especially before some kind of weird Character ban shows up at some point (look at GSC and Tau).  I liked Kenny’s original list but thought with the upcoming Adepticon showing up in my sites it might be worthwhile to throw something like this out there.  Plus I would only need to paint more Plague Bearers to get this thing ready for the table top.  I call this lists – Dangit Thomas – Quit Making more Daemon Princes!

Battalion Detachment – 5 CP – [43pl, 817pts]

Faction: Chaos Daemons Undivided

-HQ-
Daemon Prince of Chaos [9pl, 180pts] Wings, Mark of Nurgle, Malefic Talon X 2
Daemon Prince of Chaos [9pl, 180pts] Wings, Mark of Khorne, Malefic Talon, Daemonic Axe
Sloppity Bilepiper [4pl, 60pts]

-Troops-
Nurglings X 3 [3pl, 54pts]
Nurglings X 3 [3pl, 54pts]
Nurglings X 3 [3pl, 54pts]
Plaguebearers X 20 [12pl, 235pts] Daemonic Icon, Instrument of Chaos

Supreme Command Detachment – 1 CP – [36pl, 706pts]

Faction: Thousand Sons

-HQ-
Ahriman on Disc [9pl, 166pts]
Daemon Prince of Tzeentch [9pl, 180pts] Wings, Malefic Talon X 2
Daemon Prince of Tzeentch [9pl, 180pts] Wings, Malefic Talon X 2
Daemon Prince of Tzeentch [9pl, 180pts] Wings, Malefic Talon X 2

Supreme Command Detachment – 1 CP – [24pl, 459pts]

Faction: Death Guard

-HQ-
Chaos Lord with Jump Pack [6pl, 99pts] – Balesword, Chainsword – Warlord – Arch Contaminator – Relic – Plaguebringer
Daemon Prince of Nurgle [9pl, 180pts] Wings, Malefic Talon X 2
Daemon Prince of Nurgle [9pl, 180pts] Wings, Malefic Talon X 2

1982 Pts – 102 PL – 10 CP

Most likely this list will burn through some CP to give the Plate to another Character, give the cool Axe to the Khorne Daemon Prince, and maybe even Corruption to the other Prince.  I went with the Bilepiper as it will allow me to roll 2 dice for Morale and let me get a chance to regrow my Nurgle bubble.  Most of the time the Bubble will push forward, be -2 to shoot/hit, and hopefully be a pain in the butt.  Plus I could grab some models, smite the crap out of them, and then profit.

Overall both lists have give me some thoughts especially with another event coming up.  I get the feeling the Knight one might be more fun but it means I need to find some Dedereo Dreads.  Or Dorrido Dreas as I call them.  Its fun to run around with Knights and punch bad guys.  Alright that is it for now next Monday it is back to normal as I bring some random 40k thoughts to the table top discussion.

~Which list do you like more?
