Goatboy here and today let’s talk about Don’s Daemon Engine list from the Dallas Open. It’s a lean, mean Nurgle killy machine!

I got back from my first big event (about 200 attendees) of 2021 – The Dallas Open. I learned a lot about playing in 9th Edition, and you can check out the winning list here. But today I want to take some time to talk about a list that caught my Nurgley heart. I love the list as it is small, compact, and looks easy to play.  These are all the things that make Goatboy happy as having an overcomplicated combo list is just too hard for me to keep up with.  With that in mind – let’s throw it out here so you can check it out. Take it away mighty champion of Nurgle – Don:

The Little Daemon Engines That Could!

As you can tell it is a bunch of floating plague dudes, then a ton of the small little guys.  This army pumps out a ton of mortal wounds with the Plagueburster Crawler, explosions, and casting from the Plaguecasters.  It moves up, throws out damage, and can pop things as needed.  It really seems to suffer more from terrain being hard to see around with the small little Blight Haulers getting blocked from the game I watched at the end.  Overall it seems pretty simple and fun enough to try and get together – as anything with this low model count pleases the great mind of the Goatboy.

Do you have any ultra-simple army lists that you love to play?
