What Chaos Space Marine Chapter Name to use?

I have been pondering what chapter name to use for my new Chaos Space Marine army. Originally I wanted them to be Death Guard, but I got to thinking that I might like to play more than just a Nurgle-aligned CSM army. So I wanted to come up with some kind of splinter chapter that is mainly aligned to Nurgle, but can have some non-Nurgle aligned units if I want.

In trying to decide on a name for the chapter, I really want the name to include the word 'Blight', but from there I am not sure. There are a lot of good ways this can used.

My first instinct was to use Blightlords. I searched the internet to see if the name was already being used for a CSM chapter, and it isn't. But it is being used quite a bit in other games. Should this deter me from using it? It probably shouldn't.

Anyway, I came up with a couple of names and I have put a poll on the far right column. Please take a minute and vote for your favorite to help me decide. Thanks.

WIP - Winged Daemon Prince of Nurgle

I did not get as much hobby time this week, so I have not had time to post anything nor have I gotten much done. I have been spending time getting ready for my daughter's 5th Birthday party which is next weekend and doing all the fall chores that need to be done.

With the time I got, I got a bit of work done on my Winged Daemon Prince of Nurlge for the ToFGs. I think he is turning out good so far. Here are some pictures. What do you think?

I wish I had taken the time to take some pictures of it while I was working on it to show what I did. I always mean to but I just get so caught up in the modelling that I forget to do it. I need to get better at that.

The head is my favorite part. I was not sure how it was going to look as I was doing it as I only had a general idea of what I wanted to do, but I like the way it turned out. I am not sure the gut came out as well as I thought it would, but I am definately happy with the rest of it.

Tale of Five Gamers underway...

Yes, Five Gamers. We had a fifth player join us who is doing Tyranids. We also had one other player who switched to Chaos Daemons which is nice as no two players are doing the same army. Anyway, the ToFG started this last Friday and the final line up is:
  • slipwing - Chaos Space Marines
  • daskrusher - Dark Eldar
  • Deacon - White Scars
  • JFink85 - Tyranids
  • Fabricator-General - Chaos Daemons
I was able to get my seven Plague Marines and six Chaos Marines assembled this weekend. Everything is ready for priming except the Plague Marine Icon Bearer. This is an older model that I used one of the new Plague Marine arms on, but his shoulder needs to be built up using some green stuff to look right. I have also started on the Daemon Prince but I have not made it very far yet. Here are pictures of the Marines.
