Servants of Decay: 2K Renegade List

So recently I have been giving the Renegade and Heretics forge world army list a look over. When the first list came out in Imperial Armour 5 I was not impressed with it, and that list used the older edition of IG for its parent list. While I liked the idea of a renegade list, I chose to build mine based on the IG Codex, which leads to my current Legion of the Dragon, Alpha Legion themed infantry army. This new look into the R&H list is with the most current version "Servants of Decay" a nurgle themed list. Even though it still has that nasty leadership handicap, I like this list and the options it comes with. It's another cross between the Lost and the Damned and IG armylist with a bit of a twist. This list gives me an excuse to play with another FW armylist and also to theme an infantry force for my current Death Guard army to join forces with. So I drew up a 2K list using the R&H: Servants of Decay list found in IAV8.

The combination of Plague Marines and Infantry should prove to be a fun army to try and master. 30 PMs is no laughing matter, and the heavy weapon heavy infantry should provide me with support to push the marines closer to any enemy for an assault. The theme of the army will be mercenary troops. I still don't have a name for the army. So any thoughts?

Nice list. I bet it would be pretty nasty to play against. When we gonna get our game in, sir? I would love to play something a little "untraditional" like you've got here.

I think we should try and get a game in this month if possible. It's going to take me a while to assemble this force, but I'm sure I can cook up a proper chaos welcome for your Tau, with the rest of my forces ;)
