The members of this unit are Chaos Beastman followers of Nurgle,
the God of Decay. They were based on a unit I saw in White Dwarf,
which I liked the look of so much that I made a replica - same figures,
same colour scheme (no originality involved whatsoever). I completed
them in late '94.
Although the miniatures vary wildly, the use of the same skin tone
for all of them and a restricted palette of greens and brown, except
for the red symbols, ties them all together for a very strong 'unit
The fly-headed leader is a Chaos Champion and the rest are beastmen.
All the figures are from Citadel, two from Bob Olley's Nurgle Beastman
range, a couple of Khornate Beastmen, and several Slaaneshi beastmen
such as the hooded one on the end and the one with the spear.
A little light conversion was used, such as the removal of Slaaneshi
symbols from horns and armour. The red Nurgle symbols were made
simply from semi-flattened balls of putty. The shields were Marauder
plastic shields. I removed the emblem from the front of the shield
with a scalpel and then glued them on back to front. The putty covers
the hole where they would normally be glued onto the figure.
