I think that plaguebearers are the best option for icons. I recently found a box of 10 for $34 while most stores have the new reboxed ones for 5 models at $22. I was lookin through some of my old models and found that I had 9 of these left over
They are scrap thralls from warmachine. I have lots of bits so thinking I might add some swords possibly extra arms to make them have the "plaguesword". Looking for opinions or possibly shine some light to others on a potentially good model for representing plaguebearers.
Here is my Work in Progress. A plaguebearer with daemonic instrument, one with icon, and a normal one.

Bravo great idea!
Im not a fan of the plague bearer models, I think these are a great alternative.
What once was courage has now cursed in the wars we've made.
We are the sinners, before our graves.
For friendly games and non-RTT stuff this is a good choice. I think the bloated look is a little much too. (Sick people get emaciated too, dammit!)
The arms look ok, definitely add some green stuff here and there. You may even want to consider snapping off an arm or leg and just replacing it with some green stuff to make it look like goo. Also, the fluff says plaguebears have only one eye, so you may want to keep that in mind.
Thanks for the feedback. The rogue trader tournaments I have played in didnt enforce GWs 70% rule 1 for instance used the balroq with a hive tyrant head for a hive tyrant and 1 of the rules is strictly no LOTR models and the head is nowhere near 70%. So outside of any grand tournament I will be fine. I have considered greenstuffing a tentacle from their head with a single eye for fluff or just covering up one of thier eyes now. Also tested out the green stuff for making blobby looking legs its just not one i have pictured.
Keep the ideas rolling.
You shouldn't make duplicate threads of the same topic. You already have a post in the Modeling forum about this; since that is where a thread like this should go, I am going to go ahead and close this thread. If you have any questions regarding this, please send me a PM.
For those of you wanting to see more pictures of this cool conversion, check out Tyrius' WIP thread in the Modeling forum (here).
