    Nurgling bases as Chaos Spawns?

    So, as a Death guard player, I got a bit anoyed by the "loss" of Nurglings. However, I found another use for it.

    Use them as Chaos spawns. Saves you money and makes us of older models.

    DOes anyone think it's a bad idea to use them for spawns? I mean 3 wounds can easily be justified by 3 nurglings a base, no save could also be justified. Just S5... hmhm. Besides, Nurglings are nonexistant in 40k now and the models still do fit Nurgle pretty well.

    But gamewise, would you tell your opponent you're not accepting Nurglingbases as spawns? How would tournies go about it? I hope they're not like "Well, you have to buy the new models, because those you have there are NOT spawns but obsolete nurglings".

    well im sure that if you pay the points for em, the ends would justify the means. The only rule i know of is that no more than 25% of the model can not be GW bits, thats the only limitation i know of

    i thought it was 50% by weight had to be GW. oh well.....

    i wouldn't mind. seems fair. you did buy the models, and for them to tell you that they can't be used.........stupid.

    i love the nurglings, there is one problem i have however if someone used them against me: they're hardly the same height! so i would object against it!

    i would accept you using plaguebearers more easily than you using nurglings
    Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

    I wouldn't mind at all, as long as the size of the Nurglings was not used in your favour -like hding them behind terrain that wouldn't hide a Spawn and such.
    If you make clear they are indeed Size 2 models and treat them as such during the game I'd have no problem whatever.
    You could of course build up their bases a fair bit with ruins and such...

    I think it's better idea to use the Nurglings as lesser deamons. I do.

    Lesser deamons are also better in all aspects than spawns. Deep striking assault marines (minus the +3 save) should not be frowned upon.
