Here is my army for the weekend:
Short Version of List:
Nurgle Herald [Palanquin, BSB, Regen]
Big horde of 42 plaguebearers
2 units of 5 Furies
3 Plague Drones
Units of 3, 2, and 1 Beasts of Nurgle
3 Units of 3 Nurglings
No magic was a risk IMHO, I wanted to give it a shot. [short rant... I loathe how powerful a couple of spells are in WHFB...]
I found this army was pretty tough, but not equipped to wipe somebody out in less than 6 turns. I built this list to maximize Epidemius' effects [everything aside from the Skillcannons is Nurgle marked.
Amazingly, I never lost Epidemius in the tournament [although he was down to one wound twice :) ]
Overall I finished in the 20's and 4 points (4!) from top daemon Army. It was a great weekend of gaming and Nerd Nirvana!
Game one vs. Khorne Daemons [Dan Ruud]:
Blood Thirster [General] + gifts
Herald BSB + gifts
Herald on Crusher + gifts
Huge Block of Bloodletters [50!]
2 single Beasts of Nurgle
I got to go first, managed to get the Thirster down to 2 wounds and Destroy the skull cannon in an incredible [for me] 1st round of shooting. I arranged my units in depth in order prevent the Thirster from swooping in and killing Epidemius :).
Dan's Thirster charged a single Beast of Nurgle that managed to hold the critter for 2 turns until I could bring in support and kill the monster:
... That sorta sums up the game, I managed to get an almost full Epidemius Tally and was poised to roll over the remaining Horde, but ran out of time.
15-5 win for Epidemius!
Round 2 vs. Warriors of Chaos [Chris Walker]
Sadly, pictures did not turn out. Chris is a very good player who I have seen for years at events but never played. It was a pleasure.
Chris ran combo of fast cav and heavy armored units, Deamon Prince of Slaanesh, 2 chariots and Hellcannon.
Predictably I had trouble with getting to grips with units I could defeat to get the Tally going and had nothing for the heavily armed units. Chris avoided my main horde and pretty much killed everything else. Well Played
13-7 Loss for Epidemius.
Games 3-5 in another post.
Thanks for looking!
