Hail warmasters

I wondering if this list is competitive.
Basically poxwalkers spam swarms the board, taking objectives, screening Hqs and tarpit them with rezilebt and re spawning walkers.
Typhus buffs their str and toughness while being killy.
Deamon prince's to give reroll hits of 1 deal with fliers and/or tanks also buff or smite.

Is this army competive?
Thoughts and comments welcome

Sounds like a totally fun and cool list. It will surprise people and will wear tour opponent down in true Nurgle fashion. WHowever your pox walkers are a bit too slow to keep up and screen the Princes, you have zero shooting, and the Princes seem to be your only offensive unit.

I really want to bring pox walkers back onto the tables too, but it's all about Plaguebearers now. If you have this many pox walkers, then stay committed, but be aware of the limitations this playstyle has.

Thank you for the response
Yeah I know they are really slow I was hoping their resilience abs numbers would make up for it as I contest every objective. The prince's have smite as a kinda ranged attack would hope.
I only need 162 more poxwalkers for this list lol but wanted to see if it was truely competitive before committing

Try and see if you can fit in a noxious blightbringer into your list - advantage on advance rolls makes for speedy I am Legend zombies.

A bit of shooting wouldn't go amiss - you could swap out some poxwalkers for autogunner cultists - and they can charge your poxwalker battery with more bodies in time.

Do you know what your sin is, Malcolm Reynolds?

Some good ideas, I could add in a max unit of cultists with stubbers and spam cloud of flies while they keep firing. Also love the analogy, of I am Legend zombies. Will need to look into it.
Another idea, is a unit of the purge obliterators to fire into melee with a damaged unit of poxwalkers with the dead walk again statagem to recover their losses.

Edit: autoguns cultists are also zombies, spend 3 cp and they even come back from the grave.
