While the smell in the studio is somewhat under control now, this week we talk about the big stink: Plaguebearers! ‘Plaguebearers’ refers to the Chaos Soup list featuring two maximum (or nearly) size units of <Plaguebearers> to protect a <Character> castle of <Thousand Sons> psykers and <Nurgle> daemons. This list is then seasoned with 800-900ish points of <Chaos> to taste.
Here we dive into the complex synergies of this list archetype and why it has been so successful for so long. And, as always, we also delve into weakness and how-to-bear-it strategies. Josh Death personally took a version of this list to the top 8 of LVO 2019- and he provides some excellent insight into this list that are not obvious.
