The Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge

H/T Games Workshop

Last week I signed up for a one day 1,750 point 40K tournament that’s being held on Saturday 22 September* (if you’re reading this Adam you’ll get my entry fee today, promise). I’ve decided to use this impending glorious defeat to really push myself to paint up a brand new army for it.

Therefore, I’m going to build and paint a brand new Death Guard and Daemons of Nurgle army by Friday 21 September.

Fortunately I already have a painted squad of Plague Bearers, some Nurglings, a Herald plus the easy build Death Guard and Poxwalkers so I don’t have that much to do…

Plus I have already purchased the rest of the stuff I need (mainly thanks to the Dark Imperium box) so here’s what I have to build and paint.

40 Poxwalkers

7 Death Guard inc Icon Bearer

1 Lord of Contagion

1 Malignant Plaguecaster

1 FW CSM Nurgle Sorcerer

1 Plague Surgeon

1 Foul Blightspawn

2 Foetid Bloat Drones

1 Myphitic Blight-Hauler

1 Sloppity Bilepiper

1 Spoilpox Scriviner

3 Plague Drones

3 Nurgling Swarms

1 Beast of Nurgle

Now, the observant among you will know that the list above contains somewhat more than 1,750 points. That’s because I still don’t know exactly what I’ll be taking and I like inflicting pain on myself.

Can I do it? We’ll see.

*The extra observant among you will have noticed that there are in fact fifty one days, but that doesn’t sound nearly as good, does it? Shut up!
