I'm new to 40k (I've yet to play even a demo of 5th edition), but have been a long time fan of Nurgle.
I'm not going Deathguard simply because I want the greatest range of models/vehicles to convert.
The Host of Worms
(aka The Host).
Complete with my own insignia:
Chaos Lord: Mathas Skolik, the Infested
Daemon Prince: Lumbricus, The Bloated
Daemon Prince: Omunyongororwa, Sower of Maggots
Great Unclean One: Uod, the Grubfather
Patron God (unmodelled of course): Shallagia, Goat Mother of a Thousand Worms, Bride of Nurgle, Nursemaiden of Woe
First up, WIP shots for my Lord of Pestilence model from Ultraforge.
I asked previously about giving him a jump pack instead of typical daemon wings, simply because his model screams "I'm a giant bloated space marine".
I started with two caps from superglue bottles, which I might add actually looks great as the basis for a jump pack ...
... but it doesn't fit his style.
Onward, I've had this Tyranid something-or-other carapace for a long time. I kept it because it looks pretty Nurgly to me. So, why not use it as the housing for the jet pack. And just so happens, some plastic tubing I have fits perfectly.
Looks great from the back, but I'm not so sure I like how it affects his silhouette from the side and front. I think I may scrap the carapace, but keep the "organic jump pack" idea. Or maybe I'll just grind on the carapace for a while to reduce the turtle-effect:
