[2000] Heretic Astartes - Death Guard
« on: October 13, 2017, 06:43:49 PM »
By Design: Wanted to make a list that benefits from the Tide of Traitors CSM Stratagem while also throwing down 3 lords of contagion and basically go for a walking dead theme of play aiming to turn as many poor souls into poxwalkers.

Stratagems: Tide of Traitors (CSM), The Dead Walk Again (DG), Vetrans of the Long War (Either), Cloud of Flies (DG)

Combos: Typhus + Poxwalkers + Cultists move in one giant blob making use of TDWA + CoF stratagems to boost zombie horde when cultists get killed.

Mortarion rushes up backed by Bloat Drones aided by the sorcerer and lords of contagion deep striking in. Noxious blight bringer follow each of these comboed units boosting everyone's mobility. The dolourous Knell aids mortarion's squad to get within range quicker.

I think you need some backline in your list here. If you relly souly on Mortarion to do all the damage, he'll get focused down. you need something to keep dishing out damage after Mortarion is gone and if he's not gone then more power to you. And having a strong or even medium backline can help you get rid off some key units in your opponents list.  get some helbrutes or something like that. I think 2 brutes with missile and las just shooting away in the backline would do just fine and they might even take some pressure off Mortarion. Other than that I would personally drop the cultists and add more poxwalkers but thats just my pref. (and I hate cultists)
For the Dark Gods!

Theme: Zombies! Halloween cometh! The walking dead is back on. Let's spread the plague!

Strategy: Use of stratagems to hide the zombies behind cultists and force the opponent to either shoot at the cultist thus creating more zombies or shoot at Mortarion and the plague drones that will be the vanguard of the list rushing forward. All characters hide within the Horde (like the Whisperers) Blightbringer makes everyone move faster, Abaddon ensures the cultists dont flee, buffs from psykers and very powerful melee rushign the opponent.
