Hello all! I am new to Age of Sigmar and would love it if I could get some help. I was debating between Nurgle and Clan Pestilence, then realized I could do them together.

So, I have come up with three lists I would like help deciding between. I am also open to other suggestions, but would really like to include both Maggotkin and Clan Pestilens.

I have already purchased the Plague Monks, Deamons of Nurgle Start Collecting box, and a Great Unclean One. I am trying to decide on my list before I buy the rest.

Here are the lists i have come up with:

LIST A

GUO - w Bileblade & Doomsday Bell, Favored Poxes, Tomb of a Thousand Poxes

Batallion Blight Cyst -
Sorcerer - Blades of Putrefaction
Lord of Blights (General) - Rustfang, Avalanche of Rotten flesh
3 Units of five Blightkings

Endless Spell - Chronomatic Cogs

40 Plague Monks - Foetid Blade & Woe-Stave

30 Plague Monks - Foetid Blade & Woe-Stave

1980 Points

LIST B

GUO (General) - w Bileblade & Doomsday Bell, Favored Poxes, Tomb of a Thousand Poxes

3 units of 10 Plaguebearers

Rotbringer Sorcerer with Blades of Putrefaction

Lord of Blights (General) with Rustfang and Avalanche of Rotten Flesh

Endless Spells - Chronomatic Cogs
Umbral Spellportal

Batallion: Congregation of Filth -
Plague Priest on Plague Furnace
40 Plague Monks
30 Plague Monks

1990 Points

LIST C

GUO (General) - w Bileblade & Doomsday Bell, Favored Poxes, Tomb of a Thousand Poxes

3 units of 10 Plaguebearers

1 unit of 3 Nurglings

1 unit of 3 Plague Drones

Endless Spells - Chronomatic Cogs
Umbral Spellportal

Batallion: Congregation of Filth -
Plague Priest on Plague Furnace
2 units of 30 Plague Monks

1990 Points

Thank you all for whatever advice you can give me. I can't wait to get my first game in.

Go with list A. You have a lot of things right here, bell with the GUO to boost speed (movement 9 monks with run & charge are dangerous as hell), blight cyst (awesome battalion), rustfang (awesome artifact), sorcerer w/blades (awesome spell).

Favored poxes is not a perfect spell for a GUO as he will generally want to move and will definitely want to cast again in subsequent turns. Even so much as a pile-in will end the spell. On the other hand, it is an extremely powerful debuff so it can be worth keeping despite the above. Something to think about.

Take the witherstave instead of the tome. Witherstave is among the best artifacts in the game, it is ridiculous.

Get yourself the wrath of the everchosen supplement, as it contains sub-factions which amount to free upgrades for Nurgle to boost the allegiance (it was getting left behind by power creep).

Good luck!

Consider; Games Workshop rules not so much games but as toolboxes for players to craft an experience from, and open/narrative/matched play just examples of how things can be put together.

Awesome! Thank you so much for the reply. I've been reading quite a bit, but all these rules and units can be a little overwhelming for a new player. I truly appreciate the help. I will go with your suggestions, and I will get Wrath of the Everchosen.

Thanks Again!
