Nurgle Battle Standard Bearer

I now have a copy of the Warhammer Fantasy Battle rules as well as the Chaos Daemons army book. Looking at my models I realized that I'll need a battle standard bearer so this weekend I chose to convert my Herald of Nurgle to a Herald of Nurgle with a battle standard. It was pretty easy. I drilled a hole in the top of the skull on the staff. Then I took a beastmen standard and made it... Nurgly. Finally I put the two together.

I like the results. Khorne is jealous of the skulls this guy has. Slaanesh gets STDs just looking at him. An Tzeentch... well the Changer of Ways is now the Changer of his Drawers.

Next step, finish up my Fiends of Slaanesh and add a command to my Plaguebearers.


  1. Nice! I'm jealous of your conversion skilz. His collar and head seem silvery...or is that camera flash glare from his Nurgly ooze?

    Also, do you get 2 Heralds per Hero slot like 40K?

  2. Just that healthy Nurgle glow. I'm using a matte finish that isn't as matte as the other stuff I had. For Nurgle it's appropriate though.

    In WHFB, a Herald = a Hero so no :( A herald can run you over 200 points with a standard though so I'm not so sure how many I could pack in even if I had the models!

  3. Are Heralds your only heroes (I guess all the Greater Daemons are Lords)? My general weighs in at a svelte 140 points at the moment.

  4. Yep - Heralds are heroes and clock in around 160 points reasonably loaded. GDs are lords and start at 450.

  5. This is a really good idea that you have going on.
