Thoughts on Pox Walkers vs Plague Bearers?
Plague Bearers got cheaper, but I do expect Pox Walkers to follow. So lets just assume that Plagues are a bit more expensive. What do they get for it?
Can be summoned and are faster by 1". Killier in melee due to higher potential str and rerolling all wounds. Can get stuff like instruments to be chargier. Can be much tankier with 20+ models getting -1 to hit and having a 5++ on top of their 5+++.
Pox Walkers though, they can 'heal' by killing stuff. They are fearless, which is a big weakness of the daemons and they do have the Death Guard keyword.
To me, it seems like Plague Bearers win out to be honest.
