    home depot actually has INCREDIBLE deal on magnets. These are the ones I use for almost everything. You have to order online.. but they ship to store for free. the price is well worth the couple days it takes to get there. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Magcraft-Rare-Earth-1-4-in-x-1-16-in-Disc-Magnet-80-Pack-NSN0657/204721317?cm_mmc=hd_email-_-Pickup_Reminder-_-20180628_PP_ET_Merch_Pickup_Reminder_3129959-_-product_desc__W928746812 The ONLY thing I dont like about using sheet metal is there is no "lip" to grab it out of the crate. But you can cut it to exact size of the crate so it works out MORe times then not. It just so happens this cookie sheet I used is a PERFECT match for this one particular crate I got. But it sounds like you got everything under control! I will make a small suggestion to wrap the edges of the sheet metal in a layer of duct tape. Edges Are SHARP after cutting. I know from experience >_<

    I put magnets at the bottom of glotkin and stuck him to a cookie tray from target. I took that cookie try to "the container store" and found this "milk crate" style container with handles and an open top. I magnetized all my clunky models and stuck them on the same tray. GUO, plague drones, horticulous.....

    Did you see my set-up I posted about a few pages back? Tossed this together. A list for Horticulous: Allegiance: NurgleMortal Realm: GhyranLeadersHorticulous Slimux (220)Poxbringer Herald of Nurgle (120)- General- Trait: Grandfather's Blessing - Artefact: The Witherstave - Lore of Virulence: Favoured PoxesBattleline30 x Plaguebearers (320)10 x Plaguebearers (120)Units3 x Plague Drones (200)Endless SpellsSoulsnare Shackles (20)Total: 1000 / 2000Extra Command Points: 20Allies: 0 / 400Wounds: 68 Here is one for Morbidex. One interesting note.. I THINK his ability to add a model to a unit of nurglings would have no limit.. as in if you start with three. you could go above its starting cost. Someone want to point me to something that would prevent that???

    I think this would be a mistake. Blessed sons and harby makes those kings an immovable brick that can also dish out a butt load of mortal wounds and regular wounds. Most objectives are tap and go. if you need to leave 5 behind to guard an important one then you still have 10 with lop, sorc and harby. He is squishy if he is run into the heart of the enemy like a beatstick. I wouldnt treat him the same I would Prince Vordraior say a war mammoth. He is a support character who is also really good in combat. He makes marauders potentially one of the most devastating units in our army and also one of the best tarpits in the game. Plus I spent WEEKS painting him and he single handedly won me runner up best painted at NOVA last year. So Its VERY VERY hard for me to not take him. I like your list a LOT. Especially with plague cyst and blessed sons in there. Im clouded with "model bias". I spent a LOT of time converting horticulous and painting him to a high standard (for me) and since my army is HEAVILY converted to be in the middle of a garden it is hard to not include the Grandfather's head gardener! And now I am getting that same attachment to the CLoDM! I need tos top converveting before I run out of lists!! haha. Let me know how the game went PLEASE!

    Why would you give cogs and favored poxes to the GUO? If it went off he cant move and then you would be wasting 3 casts next turn! Also GUO with cogs, endless gift would be straight up unkillable. LOL

    That is the old warscroll. I know this for a fact because that is the wording for the old "In death there is life" rule. Here is the current warscroll: https://www.games-workshop.com/resources/PDF/Downloads//ENG-Horticulous-slimux.pdf

    Tell him tough ******. Its not a cheeky gotcha-hammer move.. its a warscroll ability combined with a command ability.

    @wayniac I will listen to video and maybe give plague cyst some more testing. Thanks for the link. Agreed on horticulous. He just does everything well except move fast. But he is a snail so.. lol Do they talk about blessed sons at all? It’s a big battalion cost but for 100 points it’s good. Mystic shield on all units, artifact and cp for 100... Also while the harbinger is nice, the blightkings got so much tougher with the extra wounds. 25% -30% tougher actually. Which is the similar to a 5+ fnp. So for a 160 points for him to twiddle thumbs, soak command points and not add a whole lot in combat...meh. I think an extra unit of blightkings would be a better use of 160 points. They are just so good.

    I tried plague cyst and was underwhelmed. I think 10 chaos knights would be a better investment then 30 plaguebearers. They are super fast in a Nurgle army and hit like a truck on the charge. Chaos lord on demonic mount has an amazing command ability as well. Link to video..?

    So I am going to NOVA Open again this year. Last year I was 8th overall and Runner Up best painted army! Hoping to have similar success this year. They are sold out and wait listing with about 160 players I believe. Last year was 67 lol. This list I have been playing with lately. Not feeling to confident with it at the moment. But I like it..haha. I converted my own chaos lord on demonic mount so I REALLY want to bring him to nova. Sort of a beast to rot fly metamorphosis gone wrong (right?) with a Cell (Dragonball Z) style life/body draining appendage! I also am just so immensly proud of my work on the glotkin I cant bring myself to remove him... This is the list..please be brutally honest. Allegiance: Nurgle Mortal Realm: Ghyran The Glottkin (420) - Lore of Malignance: Blades of Putrefaction Gutrot Spume (140) Festus The Leechlord (140) - Lore of Foulness: Plague Squall Chaos Lord On Daemonic Mount (140) - General - Trait: Hideous Visage - Artefact: The Carrion Dirge - Mark of Chaos: Nurgle 40 x Chaos Marauders (200) - Axes & Shields - Mark of Chaos: Nurgle Units 10 x Putrid Blightkings (320) 5 x Putrid Blightkings (160) 5 x Putrid Blightkings (160) 10 x Chaos Knights (320) - Chaos Glaives - Mark of Chaos: Nurgle Total: 2000 / 2000 Wounds: 188 Strategy: -Gutrot takes ten kings with him. Ambushes an objective, backfield unit, sows chaos, spilts enemy forces. A solid fighting group. -Chaos Lord on Demonic Mount (CLoDM) and the knights roll together. At -5 bravery combined, they can do some serious damage on the charge and in battleshock. CLoDM command ability is superb and makes them a great target for blades (+1 and rr charges). Another solid independent fighting group. My thoughts were to have them charge in, retreat, have one of the 5 man units step up and plug the holes, hold then enemy in place while the knights prepare for another charge. -Glotkin and the marauders run together. He can double their attacks, wounds, cast blades on them...really whatever I need. They can be a tarpit or a mortal wound bomb. The second unit of blightkings runs behind them as backup. Please let know your thoughts. Dont hold back on criticism. Maybe I should ditch the bravery bomb and select different artifact and command trait?? Something I get for 200 points thats better than 40 marauders? Take out Glotty???

    On Soul Grinders

    I would consider him at 220. 280 points was lol inducing. 260 is still ridiculous for how random the damage output is.

    Just to clarify....the command trait MUST be the Tamurkhans but only the FIRST artefact you choose must be the Tamurkhans. Recently it was pointed out to me that the allegiance ability (-1 to enemy run and charge rolls) is VERY usefull for denying summoned charges as they would need a 10 on 2d6 without any buffs to their own rolls. Rolling a ten on 2d6 is 17% versus a nine on 2d6 which is a 28% chance. @Tasman I am assuming he means a monster mash army with multiple large models.
  15. So due to the great and encouraging people here, I pushed forward. I removed the beasts horns, and comically out of place monster arms, replaced them with the plague drone limbs in a stabby position instead of just ambiguous appendages like they are on the plague drone model. I used the lord from the manticore kit and a Nurgle shield. I replaced he mega stompy foot with a Cell (Dragonball Z) style appendage that drains the victim of of their yummy inards! 😈🤮 The biggest improvement and the lightbulb moment was the wings repositioned in an up and downward motion position as if landing or taking off.....as opposed to the original horizontal position, as if gliding or soaring through the air. The grounded position of the monster didn’t jive with the wing position and I think that’s what seemed off for me. Once I repositioned them it was instantly better for me. (One of the tiny wings under the shield broke off. I was anxious to take pictures and upload before work, but it has been repaired so all four wings are on there.) Thanks @Ragnar Alpaca I absolutley love this model now and can’t wait to feature him in my NOVA Open list leading a pack of chaos knights!! I will update when painted. Sorry for the long long winded update..I’m just very excited and proud 😊
