GW released their first iteration of plaguebearers in 1991 (Wow! Thirty years ago). In typical oldhammer fashion, all these minis had individual names – Snotsprayer and Woundlicker are standouts for me.
However my favourite plaguebearers are the ones that were released with Mordheim’s carnival of chaos. They have a Shakesperian vibe that is quite wonderful.
There is no official plaguebearer model for inquisitor. Tin’s Bits released an unofficial plaguebearer (called Pestcyclops), which needs only some minor work to extend the height. But the figure is still very slim and lanky.
If making your own plaguebearer, thankfully nurgle is forgiving for the more adventurous kitbasher. Smooth greenstuff work is not so important and imperfections can be hidden by adding cuts/sores/boils, etc.
Semi-relevant is the Forgeworld plague hulk. In 28mm scalle, this demon engine is a huge and bloated plaguebearer fused to a chassis. So the hulk is a little more to scale in the inquisitor setting.
This is my second post on the lesser daemons – see here for daemonettes of Slaanesh https://faffinginquisitor.home.blog/2020/01/04/lesser-daemons-of-the-warp-daemonettes-of-slaanesh/
Next on the to-do list, and i’ve been faffing about this for years now, are Khorne bloodletters.
