Anyone know of an easy way to kitbash or convert plaguebearers? Cuz those GW ones are ugly as poo. Only way I can think is kitbashing falgellants with someting. Any other Ideas?

Oops should have specified. I want them cheaper then GW plaguebearers. Those look nice but are a little pricy.

Bloodletters with Zombie heads and a horn look quite good. Simple to convert as well as all you do is cut one of the horns off the bloodletter heads and stick it on a zombie one and then place the head on the body :)

Are zombie heads hard to get my hands on. No VC player around us but my cousin has about 1250 pts but he lives far away... But that sounds good.

ebay would most likely be the best place to look tho i would just buy a box of zombies ( tho i am a VC player :p) But if you do have another family member who plays with VC them you could always sell the rest of the box to him for a reduced price. I'm sure he would have a few heads laying around he could use eg empire, bret, skellies to finish off the zombies.

What's wrong about plaguebearers looking like poo? ;)

Didn't someone use VC ghouls as plaguebearers? The added a horn, and made a cyclop eye out greenstuff.

I saw it. Seems like a lot pf greenstuff. How much would it take for a unit of twenty?

Usually it is more expensive to do a cheap conversion than to buy the original (1-2 plastic boxes, expensive green stuff). And you need skill or it looks worse. I used Rackham Incubi, but they are OOP and usually not cheap.

I can't remember where I saw it but someone made some good looking ones out of ghouls.

For zombie bits there is a seller "Hoard o Bits" or something similar on Ebay. Basically just re-sells bits, would be a quick, easy way to get your hands on anything you need for converting.

I use the Tunnel Guard from Heresy Minis, seem to fit what you want as they are more human looking too [as you were considering using Flaggelant parts].

I have seen Plaguebearers converted from Bloodletters, Kroot and Ghouls. My favourites are probably these (http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/259298.page) and these (http://warhammer.org.uk/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=43965).

Do you need 10 or 20 Plague Bearers?
If you need 10, your cheaper alternative costs exactly the same as the original (including command!, otherwise the cheaper alternative is more expensive).

a good mix if you want a lot of plague bearers is to get a box of vampire ghouls and zombies, and mix this in with some wood elves dryads. not sure how many this will mae you but gives a differnt enough loo. not going to be dirt cheap but def cheaper than metal plague bearers.

mmm those ghoul ones are delicious! That looks better than the bloodletters except for the problem of buying 75 25mm bases because they come with 20mm.

I think I will use the bloodletters afterall. Just seems like less work for a similar result.
