View Full Version : Nurgle Imperial Guard, ideas?

I thought i'd put this in here and not spam general up with anymore IG threads :).

I am thinking of doing a 1500pt IG army with a nurgle traitor theme to complement my deathguard. Not too fussy about how competative it will be (well a bit) but more after some cool ideas.

So far I have:
Obvious Bane Wolf Spam, A cannon firing poisoned chemicals!? yes very nurgly

Colonel Straken, He more or less has the stats and more importantly the save of a space marine. So I was gonna use him as like a chaos space marine exalted champion leading the army.

Other than this I am a little stuck as to make it fluffy using the new IG codex. I was thinking of the FW plague ogryns, but I really cba to convert ripper guns on those models (I guess you could argue it's vomit :) ).

Any ideas?

Definitely vomit. No-one will mind, probably the opposite.

It shouldnt be too hard to make your infantry nurgly, either forgeworlds renegade militia or just a mix of Ig and zombie bitz should do the trick. If you want to stick with the chemicals idea you could convert some kind of chemical spraygun for flamers.

Penal legion might make good mutants, posessed or drugged up shock troops, psyker battle squads become rogue psykers, commissars are just bullies etc, counts as is your friend.

For a Nurgle Guard I've always thought that XVI-century anti-plague "gasmasks" are very, very evocative: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Doktorschnabel_430px.jpg
I was even pondering on making such a force, thinking myself very original when I stumbled upon this: http://www.keiththompsonart.com/pages/viraemia.html
Hell, most of Keith Thompson's artwork is very, very 40k. Browse through his site for inspiration.
Hope that it helps.

Wow! Thanks! I'm feeling a conversion for my renegade militia command squad coming on.

you should get a plague reaper for apoc. and i always thaught thunder fire cannons like shooting pus or something would be cool for the whole infantry based death guard (i know chaos cant have them dont nag at me later for it)

Convert your troops to look like they have been cobbled together from a few different bodies.You could acheive this with the standard cadian kit.
