I found this awsomeness on spikeybits.com and you won't beleave what these Plaguebearers were converted from.

I saw these guys the other day, along with the Ku'Gath model I posted earlier, and was really really impressed with them. The are brought to us by the same Nuglely genius; isotope99. This is his walk through of how to make plastic plague bearers (which if you are chaotic at heart like me, this is just what the doctor ordered).

You will need:

•One box bloodletters
•Some green stuff (or your preferred equivalent)
•(Optional) some leftover spawn bits, particularly the eyes, spare genestealer heads

Head
1) Take the bloodletter head and glue the pieces together then cut off the horns and the back part of the head so it's not so long (or use a genestealer head).

2) Drill a hole and hollow it out with a knife where the main eye is going to be. Cover the bloodletter's eyes with green stuff if you can still see them and put one eye in the middle. If you've got some spawn eyes, these fit nicely. Otherwise, just use a blob of green stuff and (optional but looks better) when it is dry add two thin slivers to be the eyelids.

3) Finally, put one of the bloodletter horns (or something similar from the spawn kit) on top of the head.

Body
1) A big blob of green stuff will serve as a rotting belly, then smooth it out at the edges so that it joins to the body. (optional) thin sausages of green stuff work as exposed entrails.

2) Fill the gap on the back where the bloodletter's spines go either with green stuff or just cut down some of the spines so that it looks less uniform.

Sword

1) Make the edges of the sword more jagged and uneven so that it looks older and more corroded.

2) Three tiny blobs of green stuff on each side of the sword handle cover up the khorne symbols (with a nurgle symbol).

Extras (see the Ku'gath pics)

1) Pustules are blobs of green stuff with the edges smoothed out to meet the skin.

2) Sores can be made by flattening out a blob of green stuff and then gouging holes in it with the sculpting tool.

3) Rough skin can be made the same way but use a pin to poke smaller holes in the GS.

4) Sinews are the same again but this time scoring in lines with the tool/knife

Finally cut/file off any remaining khorne symbols.

I love when you can find a way to make a pewter kit, out of plastic! -MBG

Hey Judas, I got your message but I can't respond. It says you either are not receiving PMs or are unable to receive them.

yeah, I got the message. I was trying to respond to you and that was when I got the message that you couldn't/wouldn't recieve the pm. In response to your PM I'm in stafford. Since most maps of Virginia don't list Stafford it'll be easier to tell you an hour south of DC and an hour north of Richmond

Will do. You're about an hour and a half away from me so it wouldn't be a trip I make just for a casual game. Though if you have any plans for a really big Apoc battle I can be convinced to make a week end trip out of it.

that is some good stuff but recently i discovered an awesome tecnique to make massive numbers of blaguebearers.You could buy a box of horde of zombies( vamp conts) and with some greenstuff cover one eye and make some bellys.(it would be a good idea to use some chaos bitz for hornes)
