So I have a pretty large squad of Dark Angels that I am not using anymore. They are painted well, not great though. Any ideas on how to make them look more Nurgle-ish without taking the original paint off?

I would suggest using green stuff to model sores, and mark of Nurgle on all shoulder pads. I would give them a wash of brown and red ink, and then give them a drybrush with some goblin green. Any metal give it a dose of green and brown ink and then with some flesh wash to get that rusted look. Highlight with boltgun metal.

Hmmm, add some green stuff, and maybe a few spikes here and there. Try o make them look like buboes with the green stuff, then re-paint them with Rotting Flesh and Camo Green.
What are Nurgles? Sorry I'm only totally absorbed in my BA army. I really havn't broadened my horizons of other 40k armies yet.
Nurgle is a Chaos God. He is the Lord of Pestilence and Disease and bad stuff like that. The army itself is actually called Death Guard.
OOOOh! I know the Death Guard. Just didn't know what a Nurgle was. Who comes up with these names? Nurgle.... :blink:
I know a great way of painting rotten nurgle troops. First give them a nice and thick basecoat of a 50/50 mix of rotting flesh(offcourse) and vomitbrown. Before this layer has dried, paint some flesh wash or brown wash straight onto the still wet paint. The flesh wash will run freely around and make spirals and patterns, making the model look truly diseased. A bit hard to explain, the best thing would be if you tested it on an old model first, just to see the effect.
