Nurgle and Orks would make a nice blend I think, but I don't really want to tear my beloved deffskullz to bits, but I was wondering of starting a second army, do you like Orks allying themselves with one of the Chaos Gods would be a fun thing to do? Fluff-wise I don't see an Ork turning down an extra arm to clobber people with...
Of all the chaos gods Khorne or Nurgle seem to fit the bill the most. Khorne for the fighting and bloodshed and nurgle for the green, smell, and generally quirkiness that both sides share.
Were you thinking of creating rules to use in casual games or just conversions? If it's rules and the people you play with are cool with it then go for it. If it's conversions it'll look, if nothing else, hilarious.
..Nurgling bikers much?
"Orks have to be followers of Nurgle! They're green, smell bad, and just want to spread the fun!"
It's not illogical fluff-wise and so I say go for it. You'd have to add quite a bit of armour if you'd want to play them as CSM, but as Orks a few mutations here and there will be fine. That, and a sloppy, dirty paint job.
Good idea IMO.
Well I was thinking of jsut converting the models into Nurgle orks and using Ork rules, but, if my opponent allows, the occasional Nurgle Daemons (WeirdBoyz coming in here). I'll always make two army lists though, one with daaemons adn one without.
Fluff wise youre completly justified, there's a blurb about Orks worshiping Nurgle in the Daemonhunters codex (actually out of ignorance thinking the Plague Father to be Gork or Mork.) I remember a big debate on the fluff forum on this topic (chaos orks i think it was called.) So get konvertin'!
My award winning Orky tale
*sniffs* My Poor Deffskullz... lol.
Hope I don't mess it up
After some thought - I'm not experienced enough, or rich enough, to create a nurgle ork force!
I will carry on with my Deffskullz and do a cool convereted Land Raider as a Battle Wagon xD
very cool idea, since your not going to do it. do you mind if i give it a shot?
Thanks! I just hope i don;t "butcher" it.
