MoN winged warptime princes are much better than lords IMHO.

Another one to visit our fair city in a month, yayz!

I would agree that Nurgle Lords are meh compared to DPs (most Lords are pretty meh).

Your army is very short-ranged, so you may need something to operate outside of 24". The FAQ they're using at the GT really screws over Chaos Dreads, so I wouldn't bother with them really. A Defiler would work quite well as a beater unit or just mobile battle cannon. I may even suggest fielding 2 with 1 Vindicator, trading 1 S10 pie for a S8 pie and combat abilities.

yea i noticed my list has a very ineffective range that is the real concern i do have. Dropping a vindy you say you do have a valid point about the defilers and i do like them i will look into that. As for the DP's heres my thing 1. I cant squish them into a rhino lol second im kinda going with the models i have right now im kind of partial to the lords just to the fact i can put them in units and wreak havoc on troops but thanks for the input guys keep it coming ill post more thoughts of mine, and yes im new around here my buddy rocketrollrebel sent me over here to get your guys input ohhh and chum do you have that FAQ handy by any chance im not familiar with it

Well, on the plus side noone will think your list is cheesy if you're taking two lords. The princes have wings and don't need no steenking rhinos. They get into assault on turn 2 at the latest, and start chewing through 4-5 models a turn almost guaranteed if warptime is up. The lords can't match that output vs. infantry (even with a daemon weapon) and are useless against vehicles. Princes can rip vehicles to shreds and with T6 and an invulnerable save are very resilient to shooting. They have been game changers for me every time I use them. They either draw an inordinate amount of fire or walk through several units, or both.

thats true about the princes. Im thinking of changeing my list i want it to be as competitive as possiable and i think that with the two DP it would be crazy competitive but thanks for the input guys. Keep the info coming your giving me some good ideas

Here's the website, with FAQ and comp rules (more reason not to take 2 Lords).

2 DPs and 2 stompy Defilers running around would be quite the frightening prospect.

Huh thats a different tourny than the one I was thinking of lol. We were looking at one the week after at Millennium games. But this one sounds cooler and doesn't conflict with my work schedule... Thanks for the linky btw!

Keeping with the Nurgle theme as a HQ i'd use

Daemon Prince, Mark of Nurgle, Wings and Warptime which comes to 175 points.

Probably 2 if i had the points;)
