Glottkin at 1k? Dam you're mean

You still have room for 10x marauders though

It's nice, but really needs a marauder unit to bubble wrap it and prevent it from moving, or to camp a table edge for the same effect. Either way you end up paying a lot of points for something that may not really be worth it. I mean... You can get a GUO for much less that is likely to do more.

Looking for a balanced Age of Sigmar? Tired of your favorite unit gathering dust because it's bad in Matched Play? Want a discount for not bringing the best possible weapon option? Try Project Points Cost!

PPC points are easily swapped out with those of Matched Play and include all models, unit upgrades, battalions, and terrain warscrolls!

Yeah i know, Glottkin could be really good or really bad at 1k, depends at what i am fighting .

Hm Marauders would be good, but i don't have marauders. Any other good Units, that maybe put my model count up?

Beast of Nurgle is your only other option for 60 points.

And TBH Glottkin should really cost more; they are worth about 400 in raw beatstick capacity between their attack profile, magic, wounds count, and healing. Then there's that sweet sweet command ability worth 100-150 considering how strong it is. I think GW is going for a median price between what they are worth as the general and not as the general, which makes them a bit OP when serving as such.

Hey, I recently started a Mortal Nurgle army and got my butt kicked at a local tourney using Harbinger General with Glottkin, Bloab, Blightkings galore, and Plaguetouched Warband. I've been thinking about expanding into Nurgle Daemons and buying the Blightwar Box/Getting Started now that Blight Kings are "Nurgle Battleline" and the new Allegiance Abilities from Blightwar look pretty cool.

What do you think of this list and what else do you recommend for 2000 points? I was thinking of adding a Plagueclaw Catapult but I noticed you rated them poorly in your original post.

I'd throw in Bloab fot ranged/magic support then reserve 100 points for summoning plaguebearers onto an objective turn 1.

With the new horde meta that apparently is a thing, do you still rate plagueclaws poorly?

Yes, because the (now even cheaper) 30-man plaguebearer blobs will simply tarpit hordes for as long as needed. Foulrain isn't even good now because the point cost doubled without an equivalent drop in plagueclaw price. Now plagueclaws aren't terrible they are just out-performed by most other options. For 60 more points you can get a whole GUO, even...

Does anyone know if the Blightwars rules will be purchasable on the AoS app (and if so, when)?

I doubt it, its just one page for the allegiance ability; there no command traits/artifacts/etc.

Yeh tbh you're probably right there... So are you thinking two big blobs of Plaguebearers to start?

Edit: Or perhaps I spend the 360 points I was going to spend on Plagueclaws on Blightkings instead. Probably a more sound investment...

Had Great success at the NOVA open! I took Runner up best Army (painting and modelling competetion) and a top ten finish in battle points. I wont 4/5 matches.. with the loss being a total 20-0 blowout tabling from a double stonehorn/kunnin rukk list. My wins were solid.

12-8 win over fireslayers
0-20 loss to kunnin rukk/double stonehorn,
15-5 win over kurnoth hunter heavy sylvaneth
15-5 win over a tzeench list
20-0 win over fireslayers

blightkings dice were HOT both days. probably overachieved but that's the way it goes sometimes! Had a great time. Kaleb Walters won it all with 18 skyfires and double lord of change (think one was kairos). My buddy played him on the final table for the tournament and it came down to a single dice roll. Turn 3 priority roll. Kaleb rolled a 2 ...my buddy rolled a 1!!!!

VERY proud of my army. Check out some pictures here: https://imgur.com/a/HaC96
I added the creeping vines on glotkin at 3am the night before the tournament. Couple warhammer TV guys did a double take and took some pictures of him and some of the blightkings. Also, got to meet our lord of the two thin coats, Duncan himself!

On another note I'm very happy to see nurgle getting some love. Havenet had a chance to try the new allegiance ability but I cant wait!!

Congratz and great job! NOVA still used GHB1, right? If so, no shame in losing to the kunnin double stonehorn list--one of the most OP things and nerfed to the ground with GHB2.

Harbinger of Decay (General)
*Artifact: Chaos Talisman
*Command Trait: Lord of War

Bloab Rotspawned
The Glottkin [480pts]

28 Chaos Marauders
-Mark of Nurgle
-Darkwood Shields
-Barbarian Axes
-Icon Bearer – Tribal Banner

5 Putrid Blightkings
5 Putrid Blightkings
5 Putrid Blightkings
5 Putrid Blightkings
Plaguetouched Warband

Reinforcements [80pts] - (nurglings)

Total Points: [2000/2000]

Yeah it was using the generals handbook 1. Winner of best army/best painted was Oscar from Frontline gaming and a beautiful ironjawz army. So I didnt feel to bad

And by over acheived.. I'm talking 5 blightkings waddling up to a unit of 20 chaos warriors and wiping them out. Getting 7 or 8 5's (gave them lord of war instead of glotbum that turn) and causing like 35 wounds. But it was a lot of fun. Kunnin Rukk took out glotkin turn one. Stonehorns slammed the marauders, wiped them out and pinballed off the blightkings one by one. I had a chance to grab some objectives. The mission had 6 objectives with two objectives disappearing based on dice rolls on turn 2 and another 2 disappearing on turn 4. All four on his side and the middle disappeared. bloab was hiding behind terrain from rukk and had I got the priority roll I would have been able to capture one! Thats the way it goes!

Nice work indeed! You still running the list under ghb2? Must have saved a bunch of points on it right?

Same list is 120 points cheaper. Dropping the nurglings gives me 200 points to play with. I figure add 20 points for 7 more marauders..why not so 180. Toyed with idea of a warshrine or adding more blight kings. Or even just straight up adding horticulous to run with some blightkings for wound saturation...and he fits the theme of my army just TOO good.

I was also GIFTED an exalted great unclean one, came across 2 more of the smaller GW GUO for dirt cheap ($20 and the harbinger of decay model for both - I converted my own as you can see in the pictures) and 60 painted plaguebearers for $1 a piece. So a demon windfall. And with a NURGLE allegiance (as opposed to having to split mortals and demons) I think I will be playing with hybrid lists. Been running this list for a while with decent success. Will play with it again.. but going to have some fun with new toys >

I always figured plague drones worked better in larger groups because you will get more opportunities to bring them back with the banner before they get wiped..Also what do you plan on doing with the 350 points????

@Sal4: I would bump the marauder unit to 35-man too, for 20 points its an easy upgrade. Then just take Epidemius.

Great suggestion. I ever thought to much of Epi. Seems like a lot of points for buffs to wound rolls, and later on hit rolls. Seems to me it would be rare to get re roll saves. And that's only against armies with a decent model count. But he seems to be popular so I'm probably wrong

I think many people underestimate him at a glance, because they fail to account for the strength of the first tier of the tally. Seven models is really not hard to get even against armies like Stormcast, giving re-roll wounds of 1... In a faction almost exclusively wounding on 3+ or better. Blightkings in particular benefit a great deal from re-rolling hits of 1 for the second tier, and Rotbrigers as a whole become extremely durable with +1 to saves. If you can get the 21 kills you need, the final tier is essentially a mystic shield on every unit in your army. The trickiest part is keeping Epi alive, something that usually involves planting him in the backfield in cover. If he survives a whole game, chances are you won that game.
