So I've had this large grim reaper model(non GW) sitting unpained on my shelf for some time, and last week I proceeded to hack bits off him and add GW parts to him, put him on a large base with a number of regular GW skeletons holding scythes as well on the same base. Not something I could take to many tournaments since its not all GW parts, but good enough for a gaming store I go to regularly.
After a quick and dirty paint job (which I plan to improve upon if the model performs well) I'm thinking of trying it out. Originally I was hoping to include Nurgling infestation on model(meaning actually skeleton infestation), but the point cost for it versus the effectiveness of it meant that I dumped it in favour of Daemonic Mutation and Spiky Bits representing the same thing. Here's the stats I've come up with.
Upgrades that don't count towards his wargear limit
Mark of Nurgle
Gear that count towards his 150 point total I think, but not his daemonic gift limit.
Comes out to 196 points total I think, with exactly 100 points spent on gifts and only spiky bits and frag grenades counting against his wargear total.
My questions are:
1. Have I already put too many eggs in one basket and should I drop some gear?
2. Should I go even more whole hog and slap on things like Wind of Chaos or a personal icon?
3. Will the Manreaper double his mutation gained attack as well?

I have only just started nurgle but ill give you my thoughts to get you started
Mark of nurgle
fine, you usually find furious charge on khorne but it should work well with nurgle
Frags fine, there's bound to be somone lurking behind a bush. Spiky bits are to exspensive imo, not even an extra attack just re-roll
D stature unusual but ok manreaper is excellent,
d strength always worth it,
d aura you definately should keep invakluable on d prince,
d mutation id leave out, imo 10 attacks on the charge at str 6 ignoring saves is enough, nurgles rot is always worth it,
hmm. d speed, well on this type of lord its a pretty good idea, hes going to have the lascannon shots flying at him from everywhere, so getting into cc faster is always a good thing.
Overall hes a pretty good lord, quite unusual for nurgle but should work fine, I personally use the standar luitenant with manreaper and a few other upgrades.
Just to summarise i'd just drop d mutation and spiky bits, (sometimes its a good idea to have less kills). The lord will cost 171 pts if im right.
Oh and as for your last questions, i think ive answered 1 and 2 fairly clearly, and question 3 the answer is no, firstly i dont know where you got doubling from (of course I may have overlooked something) but more importantly the extra attack is added afterwards,

I think Spikey Bits are a good buy. Its basically one attack for 10 pts which is pretty good IMHO, compared to some other wargear for example D. Mutation. You will almost always miss at least once with the amount of attacks the prince has, so almost every assault he'll be getting that attack.Frags fine, there's bound to be somone lurking behind a bush.

If your looking to skim your lord down however, then you could take it off if you wanted.
Stature and D. Mutation isn't neccesary either, but it can still benefit your lord.
Overall it looks pretty good.
I think its fine in games of 1000 to 1250pts or higher, but in smaller games then I'd slim it down.
