Ok, Lately i've been working on my new pet project, my nurgle army. Using forge world conversion kits, green stuffing obliterators and raptors, you know, the whole nine yards. Though i've hit a bump in the road that I need help with. I have a nurlge lord all done up and he looks awsome. I took the new terminator lord and typhus' weapon and did it up really nice, but i need ideas for my deamon prince. I want to use the nurgle deamon prince model. Thing is, he dosen't look like he belongs in the air, let alone with wings. Currently my idea is to take the fantasy "First dragon of chaos" wings and sculpt them to his back. The wings are about the right size and look dead and rotting. My friends around here though don't think that it would look right. What would you think? And if you have any other ideas of modeling "flying" onto the nurgle deamon prince model, i'd love to hear it, thanks!

Nurgle Chaos work in progress
well, you could take some clear plastic and make fly wings on his back, or if you want to keep the dragon-like wings, maybe use the lotr balrog wings or the WFB high elf dragon wings and tatter them a little, add in some rot... OR you can get the wings from a Tomb Kings Carrion bird, they're rotten (though feathered) and decaying, perfect for nurgle!
I'm not entirely sure about the galrauch wings on him... i'd think they'd make him kinda backheavy but it could work...
I agree with your friends that the GALRAUCH wings might not look quite right, mainly because the Nurgle Daemon Prince's pose (while great) is very static and 'grounded.' I would think folded or partially folded wings would work better for the model, maybe something like the zombie dragon wings in a 'down' position (much like they are in the linked picture).
Personally, I would probably go with scratch building a pair of decaying bio-mechanical conmstruct wings, sort of like these wings in appearance, but bigger and with some mechanical parts thrown in. It's a little more work then just attaching a ready-made pair, but I think it could end up looking fantastic and very nurgle. Remember, the wings don't need to necessarily look like they would 'work' in the real world, these are daemons after all!

Here's a great tutorial on how to sculpt wings:

Galrauch wings would actually look awesome in my opinion. it would ad height to the model, and if positioned right it cool look like he's flexing his wings, or if you position them leaning over his head, it could look like he just landed.
