Return from a Hobby Hiatus; Heresy Era Death Guard Army List

I'm back from an unscheduled break in the hobby. Usual reasons apply but I was also incapacitated in hospital with a spinal problem, which for now, is thankfully resolved.

This of course has meant no painting and no gaming over the last 5 weeks! I haven't even spent a single penny on Forgeworld for 2 months either! might have to check myself into rehab soon...

Recently FW released an awesome model of Calas Typon of the Death Guard. This immediately triggered an army list re-write to try and fit him into my 2000pts. He's a pretty mid-range character, and for those unfamiliar with him, his stats are below:

Calas Typon - 200pts

WS     BS     S     T     W     I     A     Ld     Sv
 6         5       4     4       3      5     4      10       2+

Cataphractii Terminator Armour
Master Crafted Deathshroud Power Scythe
Hand Flamer with Chem Munitions
Grenade Harness
Nuncio Vox
Rad Grenades

He also has a One Use Chem Bomardment, a Lv1 Psyker, and counts as a Denial Unit.

He is a bit of a point sink for a mid-range character, but he will suit my needs well as a clearance unit attached to my Deathshroud Terminators. Being a Denial Unit is also a billy bonus (and its a kick ass model) So this is how the list is shaping up now:
