hey im thinking of starting a lost and the damned army and i was curious if there is a "undivded mutant" or how would i go about making a undivded army and what plastics are best to buy to make mutants i dnt like using the orc parts (i want to make mine look like they they are human not space marines gone wrong.) any ideas would be great.

You can use the Chaos Mutation sprue form Chaos Marines Box, also fantasy mutation sprues and parts from fantasy Warriors can be great. Beast of Chaos plastic also add a very Chaotic and twisted feeling in the minis, great bits for use in the LatD army.
MEAT IS MURDER
The undivided mutant is just the basic mutant with none of the upgrades that are specific to the certain gods. So just your 6 point mutant. For a more undivided feel take a few ACs with MoCU.
For my mutants, I really liked Catachans with a Zombie sprue from Fantasy. Though they might look a bit nurgley, I think that's the best effect. They don't look "Bloated", which is the Nurgle upgrade, so I think you'll be ok.
Beasts of Chaos (4000)
Chaos Marines (3000)
yea i was definetly thinking zombies... so are like all the mutant "upgrades" gods specific? i was thinking of having them led by word bearers the fanatical preachers leading hordes of traitors and mutants :yes: and with trators do u guys find it is best to cadians models? paint their imperial stuff ova with chaos?
Cadian model are perfect for converting into traitor, they have nice uniforms that can be corrupted in so many easy ways.
I'd reserve the Cadian models for traitors (if you wanted them) and use a different set of sprues for mutants, like the Catachan box combined with the mutation sprue. And for nurgle zombies, why not use......zombies funny enough. With minor additions from your bitz sprue (laspistols etc....for conversion coolness) all you would need to do is figure out your gibbering hordes and you have all your troops choices covered.
The gods mentioned at the "gifts" for the mutants are but suggestions. They are nothing like marks in that sense.
You could perfectly well use the bloated or goatheaded for undivided mutants or for mutants in a LatD allied with Tzeentch or Slaanesh.
As someone wise once said "It's your hobby".
Marauder sprues, the obvious chaos mutation sprue (although not too crazy, we're only undivided here) and even warrior sprues can work wonders. Of course green stuff will help too, but i find with undivided mutations, they seem to look better if they're...let's say not subtle, but not overexcessive. I'm ramping up my thousand sons to a lost and the damned force along with them, and of course with tzeentch the mutants are horrifically mutated, but i'd say with undivided, go for small things - a tentacle on a squad member for every eight men, troopers with no eyes or twin mouths, or claws, or something like that. Something that, while when the mob is put together you can see the odd few mutations, but when you truly look at the models you can see clearly whats wrong with him. I'm trying with my LatD to put my mutants into a kind of organised fashion, with entire squads with the same mutation - so mutants with no faces in an entire squad, and entire hooded squad of traitors with random tentacles - basically the arch-heretic at the head of it all has taught his mutant followers that their mutations are unique, and that they must rise above the others to become the most powerful, causing groups to form, and the entire army to become secular and cliquey, so only the strong survive (i'm still working out some kinks in this, it could change entirely) - but you could work on that - maybe have a mutant boss with no eyes leading a squad that he's blinded to mark them out as the same as him. Hopefully that's given you some ideas.
The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.
"War does not determine who is right - only who is left."
cool so you can still "upgrade" your mutants without making them specific allegiances?
ok i thnk im preety set now cadiands 4 tritors. marauders, zombies and catachans 4 mutants.
thnks 4 all the help guys! wot r gibbering hordes?
Gibbering Hordes are just like Nurglings, use the nurgling models. Nurglings are so cool:yes:
"I'm gonna stomp 'em to dust. I'm gonna grind their bones. I'm gonna burn down dere towns and cities. I'm gonna pile 'em up inna big fire and roast 'em. I'm gonna bash 'eads, break faces and jump up and down on da bits dat are left. An' den I'm gonna get really mean."
