    After thinking a bit about that little army CSM I got going, I came up with the idea of adding some Plague Marines.

    Now, the fluff for this army is that they're Night Lords gone mad because of the visions they have. However, I thought I could use the Black Legion rules instead, so that I can add a few Nurgloid units. Now, why Nurgle? Because he's not really about disease, but about despair, which is exactly what drives the Haunted.

    Thoughts, things?

    Thing no 682 reporting in.

    I say go for it. I could easily see such depressed individuals taking a "gift" from an unknown shady character who promises them that they will be freed from the visions. Enter Nurgle&#39;s Rot and a whole different kettle of fish, marines with visions that see the worst and who have terrible BO. :lol:

    Thing 682, over and out

    Thing #42 reporting for duty.

    If they&#39;re going to be haunted rather than really plagued per se... how would that effect their special rules and such? Unless you&#39;re thinking the Mark of Nurgle will make them so haunted by things that they&#39;ll just not notice minor wounds?

    Thing #42, dismissed.

    Yeah, the idea is that they&#39;ve become so insane and suicidal that they&#39;d not notice the minor wounds and just tear through the enemy looking for something suitably deadly to throw themselves at. Think Death Company with a twist. I&#39;ve no idea how to represent that though, they&#39;re not going to be diseased as that&#39;s not their thing. Maybe I&#39;ll model faces on their armour like I did with my Lord, to represent the Chaos Gods imbuing their armour with power to keep them alive in torment.

    why don&#39;t you convert an imperial sanctioned psyker, they look like their having a vision/ a lot of pain and torment *clutches head*

    Are you going to do a daemon Prince model?

    or perhaps look at Lucius the Eternal in the codex, his armour looks pretty wrought in pain.

    Well I&#39;m not about to buy a bunch of sanctioned psykers just for their heads...

    And no I&#39;m not making a Daemon Prince model, it&#39;ll most likely be one or two squads dedicated to Nurgle, and some Daemons.

    what colour scheme are you gonna do your guys?

    nurgle marked squads sound good, just add extra horns and bitz but no disease stuff and they&#39;ll look cool.

    just a suggestion why not have a unit that has completely psychotic and does not care for their own lives and rushes blindly into danger(MoK) and then others with the mark of nurgle for some/ rest of the army. the marks arent meant to show any particular favour just the flaw that is in them all.

    oh and im sure depressed people would summon daemonettes, it does get lonely in the warp...

    The normal guys are codex grey drybrushed over a coat of Chaos black, with boltgun metal trims. I&#39;m not sure how to paint those Cult squads yet though.



    Hmm, the idea of using one completely psychotic Khornate unit and some more Nurgloids is cool, it deserves serious consideration. It would eat up my elites choices though, as I feel the army would move too much in the direction of what I despise most if I&#39;d use the BL list with a Marked Lord.

    Use the archive shoulderpads with the haunted looking faces moaning in them. I think they&#39;re called chaos nurgle on the GW website.
