Getting to 2500 points

After my game last Thursday night, I got to thinking how I could get my Nurgle Daemons up to a decent 2500 point list. I am about 100 pts short. Fortunately, I have had the following model in my bit box for a while now.

I got this model in a trade a while ago. The guy I was trading with just threw it in because he did not want it. I did not know what it was until just recently and it turns out it is the Warmaster Greater Daemon of Nurgle. I mounted him on a 40mm base and I plan to make him into a Herald of Nurgle, which could easily use up 100 points.

At first, I though the model might be a bit small, but I think it will work. Here is a size comparison with a regular Plaguebearer. As you can see, it is shorter than a Plaguebearer, but more than makes up for in in sheer mass.

My only problem now is to decide what to equip it with. At first I thought a Chaos Icon would be the way to go, but I am thinking that Breath of Chaos would be a better option. It would add some offense, as well as a template weapon, to any unit it joined. Unfortunately, the model is missing an arm, so I will have to model something for this.

On the Ork front, work continues on my Mega Dread. Here is the latest WIP picture.

wow good work so far on the dred. I look forward to the progress, I'm thinking of adding one of these to my army!

Thanks Mart. The model is fantastic and it can do well in battle. Your opponent will fear it, so it will most likely be destroyed, but you can use that to your advantage.

I really like the color on your dread... the metallics are very effective.

Thank you Loquacious. I am experimenting with different metallic colors in an attempt to make it look like a walking scrap pile. I think I am getting there.
