Death Guard Army?

Recently I have been thinking about building a Death Guard CSM army mainly because the rules for the Nurgle Blight Drone and Plague Hulk allow them to be used in a Chaos Space Marine army that contains at least one unit of Plague Marines. Dual army models like this are great and it would be great to get more use out of them. Since I am a big fan of Papa Nurgle, it would make sense to build a Death Guard list. I also have the following that I could use:
  • HQ
    • Nurgle Daemon Prince (from my Chaos Daemons army)
    • Typhus
    • Forgeworld Nurgle Sorcerer
  • Troop
    • 7 Plague Marines painted
    • 10-15 Plague Marines that need assembling
This seems like it would be a good start to a Death Guard list but I am not sure where to go from here. What else would I need to build a decent list? If anyone would like to offer up some advice, it would be appreciated.

Hi Slipwing -- looks like the start of a great army.

In terms of what to add next, I think it depends on which route you want to head down. If mechanised, then a rhino or two would probably be good for the troops coupled with a predator perhaps (or obliterators). Plaguebearers might be cool if you want to have a few icons present and go for a `plaguespear'? Lots of choice...!
