Once you're up and running I'd be surprised if dead glow plugs would cause an issue, that said before I replaced my glow plugs starting took a few cranks and a lot of white smoke from unburnt diesel.  I was only 2 glow plugs down, if you've got more than 2 glow plugs down I'd expect the symptoms to be even worse that I experienced.
