I've decided to take what's left of my Chaos forces (after I hacked into a lot of it to make my World Eaters) and build them into Death Guard. They won't be pre-heresy, as I wish to use them as CSM codex rules. However, I intend to build them at the stage of transition between Imperial and Nurgle. This means Heresy-era colours, gear, armour and so on, but showing early signs of mutation and taint.
Additionally, I'm not taking the traditional Nurgle route with them.
I am heavily inspired by this style. I want to do whole-hoc gothic adornments:http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd245/W...deathshroud.jpg
And will be taking this 'perspective' of Nurgle - see Mortarian:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v181/elf...EMONPRINCES.jpg
This will turn into a blog once I get some models started, but for now I have some questions.
When were the Death Guard referred to as Dusk Raiders? Does this hold any sway after the Siege of Terra?
Did the DG perform any drastic structure changes (such as the World Eaters slaying all their Librarians)?
How soon after the siege of Terra were the likes of Defilers, Soul Grinders, Death dealers appearing? I know the latter is most-commonly a Khorne engine, but I'd like to do a Death Guard version.
