The combination is also strongly supported by the fluff for good measure. This also goes very well with the Stratagem that lets you throw an ass-load of blight grenades in one shooting attack. Each unit can throw one grenade and the dozens of HQ characters and mini Elite slot characters that DG armies will no doubt end up running, can each throw a blight grenade. So the bulk of your army may well be able to throw half a dozen grenades in a single shooting phase without even using a stratagem. Plague Surgeon - Dr.

The scythes are interesting: the deathshroud may replace their natural number of attacks for a number equal to the number of enemy models in base contact with them and perform a sweep attack. Lots of S5 AP2 attacks are deadly to most units in 40k and can certainly bust light transport tanks. I see them in two roles: a as shock troops, and an escort for a terminator praetor, even Mortarion himself; b a deep-striking nuisance unit that can disrupt back lines and claim objectives with near impunity.
Attach the Death Guard praetor or Mortarion himself and go forth and assault the heart of the enemy, especially large hordes of elites and opposing terminators. Not invincible, but opponents will think twice before charging them. Run a couple of these squads via deep strike and disrupt the enemy.
Charge any objective holders as Mortarion commands. Take, control and hold said objectives in the late game. All 20 wounds of it. To be used when deep striking is permitted, or if you have a crazily big points limit. Their major problem is being in the right place at the right time, but otherwise this is a very scary unit on the board! Posted by.

Even whilst we kill, we judge. Midst all your guards, still we strike. And we are his reaping blade. Every one of these plague-ridden Heretic Astartes are redolent with a miasma of fear and menace. Such a reputation is richly deserved. Swollen with unnatural power, the Deathshroud tower over their enemies.
