i know this is pretty vague but i am asking the community of what things i should look out for and how best to play my evil stunties vs this nurgle army in the watchtower scenario. any advice will be gratefully appreciated!


If playing the watch tower by the book, it is really a weird/crappie scenario. Anyway tho, use rockets to clear out his fast calv. Send the destroyer with fireborn together into his blocks. Ignore his hellcannon for the most part and focus on clearing his calv and weakening his blocks. I highly doubt your infernal guard will see combat.

Well i managed to win the game for those who are interested. His sorcerer lord and BSB went into one unit with the aim of claiming the tower. Doom and darkness and deathshrieker rockets managed to panic them off the board before they got into it. His combat lord and festus joined the other block to to come fight me. Both fireborn and destroyer combo charged them and wiped out all warriors in 2 rounds of combat. Leaving both characters to flee. My infernal guard marched up and claimed the tower. Not bad for only my 2nd game with them.


Very nice win and thanks for the quick recap. Congratulations.


We love it when a plan comes together.
