The devils in the detail..

Oh I forgot, Grimspew carries the Staff of Nurgle, which I am told reliably by my copy of The Lost and the Damned, can turn an enemy of his into a pile of squirming maggots. Here I used a Wormpile from the Helldorado range:

 
Also the Nurglings who carry the Palanquin of Nurgle can leave sticky pools of goo behind them as they move. On a roll of a 6 each turn, a pool will be deposited in the Palanquin's wake and any model passing over them will contract Nurgle's rot!
 
 These are simply made from milliput with bits of rice and some silica gel balls squished in. Lots of glazes of greens, blacks and purples to get the required colour and then loads of layers of gloss varnish to make them look oozy. 
 
This is what I love about Oldhammer and the Realms of Chaos in particular , so much detail in the background and so many rules that can inspire some new models to be made to add to the flavour of a warband - even though it is very unlikely that the maggotpile or the sticky pools will ever see the battlefield....
