"You've heard the phrase 'cream of the crop'? Well this here's the Curd."

Death Guard with Daemon detachment for semi-comp play.
The idea is Cultists are the first horde then DP's summon in the Daemon detachment for a second wave. Tallyman's in with the Cultists for some extra oomph
C&C wanted. I'm not really happy with the Nurglings so if anyone's got a better idea I'll take it

Daemon side looks good. 2 PBCs are good, could save points and keep the heavy slugger. 2 drones good. Tally man is there for the melee support units on the PM but I think the Plague Cleaver and Flail is wasted on models with just 1 base attack. If you want melee Plague Marines, take 2 plague knives and use the Grenade Staratagem if and when you can. I'd also take more Nurglings over Cultists.

I play pure DG with Nurgle Daemons and AT is always our big weakness. Spitters are decent for Infantry, but it takes average 2 turns just to get to Spitter range. Eventually I just dropped Troops from my DG detachment and Instead, take a Spearhead detachment of PBCs, MBHs, and FBDs with some other heavy element. Lately I've been trying out Predators and Deredeos. Still working it out.

Good advice you got. I've dropped a cultist, added 2 more Nurgle swarms, given the FBT Heavy Blight Launchers and the PBCs bolters & Entropy for some heavier dakka. 2 Plagie knives is a good idea but I still like the flail cause of higher chance to hit. Donyou think I should keep the Plaguespitters on the PBCs? I was gonna stick them with the PMs or generally keep them midfield

Ive been heavily considering Twin Lascannon Contemptors for the AT death guard is lacking. Especially hiding out of LoS and then moving with no problems and shooting.

Consider also a Leviathan Dread or a Deredeo. They've been FAQ'd to get Inexorable Advance, so they can all move and shoot with out penalty, and though minor, the contemptor gets double shots on the combi-bolters, Put a bunch of MSU plague marine units around a Deredeo with a Hellfire Veil, and cast Miasma on the Deredeo.
