What we have here is my Head Honcho, the General who leads the traitors into battle time and time again. On the tabletop he is following:
- Chaos Lord
- Mark of Nurgle
- Daemonic Speed
- Daemonic Mutation
- Daemonic Strength
- Nurgle’s Rot
- Teleport Homer
- Frag Grenades
This is the guy who gives the bad guys nightmares. He reliably can make a turn 1 assault, then pulls down terminators right next to him and keeps chewing through infantry squads like there is no tomorrow.
Modelwise, This guy was a hoot to make. I had an extra Death Guard Champion mini, and a WFB Beastmen Chaos Boar, tons of IG bits and some time. I always liked using chaos boars to represent Daemonic Speed for Nurgle as they had a certain tough stubbiness to them that felt good with the army, and the traditional ways of representing speed such as long legs, or a serpents body, or a flying base, just don’t go well with Nurgle. Is it technically a Deamonic Mount; yes… Do I care; No.
I often load up my HQs with a variety of minor wargear, so lots of saddlebags, and bling were a must. I assume he keeps the Teleport Homer in that big rucksack behind him. Finally the Manreaper was made using parts from a Carnifex Scything Talon, and a Power Axe.
