Hi all - as the headline indicates, came an idea out of the blue
And I was thinking about converting Epidemius into a Skaven Warlord on a Warlitter, for my return to my Skaven Army (After so many years )
But as allways, I thought of putting my idea up here for a debate - just to hear some suggestions on who to do it....

Ideas so far:

1). Remove hourglass, maybe replace it with a ball (to repecent the magic item: Death Globe).
- Also remove his other hand weapon, and give him a more Skaven-ish weapon (maybe from the Stormvermin sprue).

2). Cut of his head, and find a fitting replacement (again maybe from the Stormvermin sprue).
- Another alternative for his head, could be a Rat Ogre head (But its size maybe a bit too much).

3). Green Stuff, and lot of it - he and his Nurglings might gonna need some fur.
- sounds simple enough.

4). Remove all kinds of chaos marks/icons, and replace them with Skaven marks/icons.
- sounds simple enough.



Let me hear from you, all kinds of feedback is welcome
Cheers mate - Merchant

I like the idea, it sounds like some hard work though. Keep us posted.

I agree with 2 and 3, but 1-Keep the hourglass and have it filled with Warpstone Dust and 4-Keep at least a few Nurgle symbols in there; it's who the Skaven are praying to, essentially. Other than that, I'd love to see the conversion when it's done.

The Horned Rat is a separate entity from the chaos gods. Plus, the only clan that really worships his plague aspect are Clan Pestilens.



Merchant: It sounds like it should be a lot of work, but it'll look awesome when it's done.

Eh, that's a fluff debate, but the impression I got was that he was essentially part of Nurgle like the Lady of the Lake is an aspect of Isha.
