These are my Plagueletters (nothing to do with anthrax-laced correspondence).
They started life as my "Lesser Daemons" from the old Chaos Marine Codex but never saw the tabletop due to my complete loss of faith in the book. They were hiding amongst my un-finished resin Plague Marines, so when the Forgeworld stuff made a comeback these guys got resurrected too.
From a fluff perspective, I like the idea of Father Nurgle taunting the blood god by twisting some of his Bloodletters into a more diseased version. They may not look particularly "Slow and Purposeful" but they look suitably nurgly now.
I've repainted them in my English Uniform scheme used throughout this army. I have spent as little time as possible painting them which, for me, has been a nightmare. I really struggle to 'slap' paint on models (hence I have a horrendous backlog). I managed to get these guys sorted in an evening, including using a sponge to add colour to their rusty weapons – great fun!
In addition to my twisted version of Khorne's finest, I also have some of the more traditional lesser Nurgle Daemons. They're still looking for some paint but, with a bit of luck, they should be on a par with the rest of the troops by the weekend.
