While I love the beasts of nurgle models, I do not love their price. Does any one have some interesting ideas for conversions? I also have 6 plague drones waiting to be built( already have 5 built so don’t think I need 11 of them) could the bodies be good bases for a conversions? Thanks for any ideas!

There are a few interesting examples if you google "plage drone beast conversion". It looks like people generally flip the body around (so that it's in a S shape rather than a C shape), remove the legs and wings, and add tentacles with greenstuff.

 

But there are nice examples in "C shape" such as this one: http://convertorum.b...trollaloll.html

 

This one without legs (not a huge fan): https://bloodybeast....f-nurgle-squad/

 

I would probably try to reposition the legs instead and turn them into ~termites rather than ~flies, and I'd try to add greenstuff tentacles coming out of their mouths (lovecraftian). It bugs me a little than big slugs have a 6" move characteristic; legs would help!

I essentially planned to do the "S shaped body from plague drone with lots of tentacles" version because i love beast of nurgle and dont like plague drones :D

I converted some plague drones into beasts of nurgle wallowing in the muck.

All great ideas! I love the look of the beasts of nurgle just not their price to point ratio. I’ll have to play around with these ideas and try that google search you recommended Miek. When I tried all I found where daemon prince conversions.

Each beast of nurgle kit contains enough for 2 of you go heavy on the conversion for the second.
