Im starting a Chaos Marines army with an emphasis on Nurgle and I am having trouble finding what i need to buy to complete these two squads. Seeing as only a plasma gun comes in the plague marines box, that leaves me without 2 meltas, 2 combi, and 2 power fists. As I plan on having more squads then this, I have thought about buying a box of regular chaos and a box of possessed and just mix and match to make a couple squads. I would greatly appreciate some ideas on what would be cheaper solution to getting the missing parts than just buying lots of boxes of plague marines and such.

I don't recall how much plague marines are for a box, but you could very very easily convert normal CSMs to Nurgle with a few minor modeling choices (Small amounts of greenstuff for pustuls, the right paint colors, ect. Also, if your not going for a Tourny army, you don't have to worry TOO much about modeling all your weapons. I would recommend playing a few games with a friend, subbing in weapons to see what fits best for you and your style of play.
Thanks. I have been testing out the army for awhile now and it is for competitive play, thats why im so concerned about using the right weapons.
if you got extra money, I'd recommend getting 2 sets of the CSM boxes off ebay and then getting 2 sets of the death guard conversion packs from forgeworld (Death Guard Conversion Kit). it gives you enough to convert 10 death guard. and if you use the legs/arms/weapons from the CSM boxes, you'll get 2 meltas, 3-4 plamas I believe, and 2 powerfists
not to mention the death guard conversion pack looks amazing. thats what I have for my plagues.
those conversion kits are nice, however, I made this post to try and save money, rather than buying a bunch of boxes/kits.
Bitz and conversions for you then!
well hello fellow nurgal player. i have about 4000 points worth of the plague infested fun boys, and i love them. i run 4, 7 man squads thats are mostly all meltas or flamers and they are great. i never use plasma guns...they cost too much and they stop you from being ..well... flexible. Do not fall under the impression that we simply sit on an objective and take shots, we cost to much. I use them for all things, holding, assulting, killing tanks..( last night i killed a landraider redeamer with two melta guns...hehehehe...i cryed i was so happy) Plauge marines are tough as nails but we are good at almost all things. use them with lots of tanks and give them rhinos so they can get stuff done. make each squad effective in a spacific use...or keep them flexible to make up for lack of numbers. take one squad with two meltas, and give the champ a combi melta( although i love combi flamers) and pop a rhino or a tank with it. Always give your champ a power fist to keep dreads at bay.
i run lots of tanks in my armies and they seem to help keep my plauge marines alive and kicking to bring a smack down on most other units.If you have a ork army running at you....use flamers, vidicators, and defilers. If you have to kill marines...use preditors with lasscannons.....whatever you do, lay your army out on a table and stare at it and make adjustments. This will make you see what you have and what you need. Enjoy
