870 point Death Guard list

Postby QUAD_DAMAGE » Mon Dec 31, 2018 9:48 am

Hello,

I've built out a 865 point Death Guard list for a game with Tyranids next Sunday. It was certainly challenging making a list this small but it forced me to experiment.

Thoughts and suggestions are always welcome!

As the tyranid player you are facing, word of advice. Need more bodies. If you can, switch the terminators and/or swap the DP for cheaper options. I say you need more bodies, because I will be showing up with 52 infantry models that are fast. You will need blockers to protect the important stuff. The drones however, if they have the flamer option, then they will be really scary against my infantry.

Much better. This will give me more walls for me to chew through to get to the tasty scary things.
