Is there any rumors or anything going around that fiends/flamers/plaguebearers are getting plastic models in the near future or should i start buying them now?
cheers in advance guys
Nope, we just got our 2nd wave of models last August so we won't be getting anything new for a while.
I use Chaos Spawn for fiends, and no one's ever complained. Also: virutally any infantry model + greenstuff = plaguebearer.
I am using Seekers without the rider as Fiends. You get 5 for the price of one metal Fiend or two plastic Spawns (Canadian dollars). I will be buying some Pink Horror bits and putting their arms on the mount. Horror arms fit and look about right. CrownAxe is right, unless wishes come true, we won't be getting any more plastic models for a while.
here's link to how i made my fiends...
there ain't really much to do about the plaguebearers or flamers as far as i've seen. Were i starting now i might use plastic ghouls/zombies from mantic games and give them one eye and horns, might work, but haven't really gone further than thought about it since i started of with buying 30 paguebearers when i started...
I'm just about to do 40 plaguebearers from GW zombies + Heresy miniatures horned cyclops heads. still debating whether they "need"the GS belly though...
I have too many armies to list in my signature!
You're already ahead of the game with the cyclopian heads. Most people just use zombies without any conversion.
The answer to your question is no.
There are actually some suitable conversions IMO.
Fiends= make them like a centar thing, thread on it here in this forum.
Plague bearers= I originally used Ghouls from vampire counts. They didn't have swords, 1 eye, fat bellies. but I saved enough money to fill my gas tank twice.
Flamers= you dont actually use many of these so a box of 3 is fine.
Good luck man.
