I'm gonna start a plague marine army. For plague marines I was wondering, how many prefer buying a plague marine set or a normal csm set and modelling them. I just want some opinions so i could decide which to do.
A little math will show that you get about 24 plastic chaos marines for the price of 14 plague marines and a packet of greenstuff isnt expensive enough to shift the balance.
I convert the plastic marined with greenstuff, and while I'm no talented sculptor, I get pretty decent results with a little patience, and so can you.
Speaking of plastics, I highly recommend the space marine plastic dreadnought, its easy to convert and with a fair paintjob it looks really good.
I'd just go with whichever models you like more. You will get more regular CSM for the same price as DG marines, but I'd still go with whichever you like.
Also, the new plastic SM terminators are great to abuse into creating plague terminators, basicly you can't go wrong, it's Nurgle afterall.
I decided to go with a regular csm squad and modelling it. I was a bit reluctant at first with sculpting but im gonna go for it. I'd save a bunch of money too
Just found this this morning and got a couple ideas of what to do:
Thanks for the replies
I used the normal death guard models for my troops, but with minor conversions (some green stuff on the backpack, head swaps etc.) and i used the CSM boxes for my Chosen, which i converted using Green Stuff.
and yeah, im gonna be getting the new Termies to convert into Death Guard ones. cant go wrong with DG termies.
My army already used the older "gas mask" plague marines, who don't have banding on their armour, because of this I don't like to use either the normal CSM or the newer Plague Marines as the banding doesn't really work with my colour scheme. Now I use normal imperial marines, with their armour cut into with a knife and some greenstuff for kneepads, chests and nurgley tubes and symbols. I also have a large and rather odd box of bits to use though, and this approach is very time-consuming... but fun! :lol:

i much prefer the old models- there so much cooler! specially the one wih the rib cage shoulder pad and gas mask.

Well, I for one, bought two boxes of the "new" plague marines, and a box of plastic CSM and a box of CSMs with a rhino, and two blisters of death guard havocs, for more meltas and plasmas. then I interchanged the arms, some metal, some plastics, and loads of green stuff, to blend them all into a unified look & feel. I think it worked out great, and it's a cheaper, and more fun way to do Nurgles biddings...
On a side note, I really...no, I mean really don't like the new plastic teminators. They look far too agile, I'm from the old period, when terminators were hulking big one piece models from space hulk(the first edition), and thats how they should look, cumbersome and heavy set, not circus acrobats
