In under two weeks' time I will be heading to the North West Gaming Centre in Stockport (UK) for a 30k Horus Heresy campaign weekend. A campaign weekend is sort of the opposite of a tournament - gamers are encouraged to be fluffy, and it's definitely a fun game you are aiming to create for your opponent, not a crushing defeat of your opponent!
As I am very poor, I have decided to build my Death Guard force for the smallest cost possible! I have previously bought about 100 'Space Crusade' Marines for about a tenner(!), so of course they have become the core of this army. I also won a decent amount of second hand Chaos Marines (40 CSM's and 4 Dreadnoughts) for about £30, so the Death Guard veterans will use CSM models, as I figure the veterans would be more likely to convert to Nurgle before the rank and file might do.
Here are the models I have painted so far:
