hey everybody jus wondering that instead of buying plaguebearers as a box of 5. Do you think you could just convert them from the vampire counts zombie miniatures thanks for all help.
No reason why not. As long as they're obviously plaguebearers and not zombies I see no problem with it.

I just had visions of zombies wielding large greatswords, and my god that would look awesome. If you made the zombies more bloated, gave a few of them cyclops style faces, added a few horns and spikes and the like, and gave them swords then I'm pretty sure you could pass them off as respectable plaguebearers. The current plaguebearer mini's aren't exactly nice anyway (well, they are Nurgle so of course they don't look nice, but I mean the miniatures aren't very good).
Yeah, I was displeased with the need for nurgle in the new demons armies and them not being remade into plastics or cheaper options for fielding the almost neccessary 2 units of them. I am currently working on an entire army of nurlge that I am converting using tyranid heads and various other warhammer bits. My plaguebearers have skaven arms with swords and zombie left arms with genestealer heads the bodies are self sculpted to look like giant maggoty/wormlike. I think the zombies or ghouls from vampire counts would make a good base for plaguebearers.
That is agood idea to use Zombies as a basis for creating Plague bearers. I would suggest trying to do things such as adding on green stuff to thier backs to make them look more hunched and less human. Also you could add a few Nurglings on to thier bases here and there. Nurglings would help to make them look more like Daemons of Nurgle and not simply weird Zombies.
I found this a while ago and I thought they were awesomely done.

I think there a good start for you to work on your own for guidelines or whatever if you want to be different and giving them greatweapons would be a cool idea but shame they dont get the option for them.
good luck with conversions.
