Welcome to Librarium Online!
So I've not started building my GUO yet.
The reason is that I dont like the current model... I did buy a classic GUO but then decided that it didnt like that one either.
The main reason is that they are too small.
I'm not yet ready to scrath build one.
So I started thinking about the Warhammer Giant... GW US did a nice nurgle giant for the release LINK
Have you got any pictures of other people building Nurgle giants or even used the giant as a base for a GUO?
I know many will think that the giant is too slender to represent a GUO but I think it could look nice...
Tips and comments appreciated!

There are a couple of Giants and GUOs for your delectation and inspiration.
Cervantes: In order to attain the impossible, one must attempt the absurd.
I think there's two looks that work well for Nurgled things.
One would be the traditional, overstuffed sausage look. The FW GUO would be an example of this; as would Plague Marines.
A lesser used option would be the scrawny, sickly look as is well featured with the Plague Bearers. Very thin arms, legs, and upper torso with that bulging diseased belly looks really good, and it makes a lot of sense. If you used a giant model as a base for something like this, I think it'd work out really well.
I'd just suggest changing the head, or heavily Nurglifying it. The giant belly is perfect for a little tearing with intestine and nurglings coming out, and such.
It wouldn't be a bad option with enough creativity.
