Default My Renegade Nurgle Guardsmen army

So, from the reactions to my teaser in the introduction thread, apparently peoplez are interested in seeing some more of my Traitor Guards, an army I started after Imperial Armour : Siege of Vraks I was released and that I was able to expand once Siege of Vraks III hit the shelves with a Nurgle-themed Traitor list.

So where to start?
I'll just follow the regular Codex-structure and start with...
HQ
A Plague Marine Commander (yes, I can let my Guards e led by a Chaos Space Marine!):


And a Plague Marine Psycher (not Codex-legal, but a cool add-on for Apocalypse games :



Also for those Apocalypse games, I included Deamons into my army... there's the Great Unclean One :


And I also painted up an Epidemius :


My Guardsmen HQ-choice :



Supported by an anti-tank squad :


In a supporting role, my Enforcers (the Renegades' answer to Commissars)


And a group of Apostate Preachers


And finally, some Unsanctioned Psykers that can either be seconded to Guard-units, or I could use 'em as per the Codex : IG with their minder :

What comes after HQ's again?

Oh right, it is time for
Elites
First off, a Plague Marine unit, and since I've got 20 of them, there's plenty of configuration-possibilities.



And I also pimped out an Old School Rhino for them to be transported in :


Renegade Ogryn Berserkers



Disciples of Xaphan :

Next up :
Troops
Now I won't bore you with individual piccies of all my units of Guardsmen, know simply that I have 2 times two Squads and 2 Command Squads, good for 50 footsloggers in total.
All are equipped with an autocannon, a PlasmaGun, a Sarge and a Vox Caster
Here's a sample :




Then I have loads of Mutants' Rabble, about 40 of them, here are 30 in one single piccie :


To represent Plague Zombies, I used the Fantasy Battle Crypt Ghouls, who strongly resemble the zombies from the movie I am legend


On the Deamon-side of things I have a small unit of Nurglings


And a small unit of Plague Bearers


And that's all the Troop-choices I have at the moment, good for a grand total of 120 bases…

Now there aren't many units of these, as Fast and Nurgle don't really match up well...
What am I talking about?

Fast Attack

2 Chaos Spawns


A unit of Sentinels :


A Vendetta :


And finally a Blight Drone :

This is a seriously cool collection. Your models are painted wonderfully! I'm not a fan of nurgle but you have done a sterling job. I really like the orgyns, the crypt ghouls and the sentinels. Lots of lovely touches in your army. These guys are better painted than my traitors. +rep

I like the inclusion of some old school CSMs and Rhino.

That is a fantastically paint army, made even more so by the fact that the models and the paint job itself is actually nice and clean. Too many people seem to think that because they are painting Nurgle that they can just be sloppy and it will still look good which is most certainly not the case. Very well done!

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

A good looking force. Most impressive. I like the old school splatta cannons as field pieces. I did that,but you did it better.
