im personally a huge fan of w40k. I watch lore videos on youtube, read the books, played most of the PC
games, etc. so a friend of mine hooked me up with his Death Guard part of the Dark Imperium box. So I bouhgt some more models, essambled all the stuff and started painting. In the meantime my friend and I went our seperate ways. So now I have no partner to play and by the way Im pretty noob
in playing w40k
- So whats the deal?
I would like to have some closure and so I want to have a counterpart to my "Army" to get them out if other friends want to play with me. Sure Im into the painting and want to expand my collection a bit more but priority is to have a casual game with a good amount of challange
- What do you aiming for?
Im looking for a Loyalist Army in adition to my Traitor Death Guard Legion. Best would be Space Marines Primaris or Sisters and like 1000 - 1500pts. I would like to have a Army which contains some fluff and maybe some badass models. But the Units should be balancable with my already existing.
I will post my Death Guard Units below to show you what I already have and like to add. I dont want to get too pricy but I should have enough money to get the needed stuff.
- What I already have
1 Squad of 7 Plague Marines with Bolters and Plague Knifes; 1 Champion with Plasma Pistol and Power Fist; 1 Plague Marine with Plasma Rifle and 1 Plague Marine with Blight Launcher
1 Squad of 7 Plague Marines with Bolters and Plague Knifes; 1 Champion with Plague Knife and Power Fist; 1 Plague Marine with Plasma Rifle
1 Squad of 5 Plague Marines with Bolters and Plague Knifes; 1 Plague Marine with Icon of Despair and Bolter; 1 Plague Marine with Plasma Rifle
1 Noxious Blightbringer
1 Malignant Plaguecaster
1 Biologus Putrifier
2 Lords of Contagion
2 Foetid Bloat-Drones
3 Myphitic Blight-Hauler
- What I intended to add
1 Squad of Plaguelord Terminators
1 Chaos Lord ( was thinking of buying Deathshroud Bodyguards and take one of them as Chaos Lord)
1 - 2 Foul Blightspawns
maybe 1 Chaos Rhino?!
- Strategy I first had in mind
I thought about building the squad around my Biologus Putrifier. I read about that granade combo with the Overwhelming Generosity and Blight Bombardment. So I trying to get to the oppoment using Psychic Powers / Poxwalkers. In the meantime my demon engines will keep the opposing forces occupied. But I know that I merely thought this through. Also I want to have some options for other strategies.
I know already that any opposing army must be hard hitting one with many shots because of Disgustingly Resilient and Psychic Tantrums the Plaguecaster could throw.
Im open to your ideas
and changes which you suggest. Maybe you would be so kind to give me a working List with models I should add instead of the mentioned above.
Thank you all for your help in advance I hope I could give you enough information to work with.
