That and the standard in the Blightkings would make an exceptionally awesome Icon of Nurgle.
I'm heavily considering magnetizing the bases for mine to that i can have round bases. I doubt anyone will give me grief for using them as termies and a sorc lord.

I'm reserving judgment on the size until i have some in hand.


But seriously, 11 torsos and 5 heads per box of 5?!?!?! That's what sold me. So many nurgley bits left over. And we all know what Papa Nurgle does with leftovers.

Can't bring myself to use them as Maulerfiends since they can't be marked.

But as a GUO? For sure.

I got my hands in the Blightkings and Gutrot last night. Amazing kit.

They're not as large as I was assuming but still great. SO MANY BITS.

Yeah, if you swap the heads, the Blight Kings are perfect "true scale" Plague Marines. Looking great mixed-in with my FW Plague Marines. Lots of great Nurgley bits.
Too small for Oblits though.

Yeah they look good on a 25mm base, perfect for nurgle heralds basically 5 for the price of not even 2.

They come on a 40mm square base. They look like they are going to be beefy enough to roll as spawn, mutilators or oblits. I am going to make them in to minders for my Nurgle Spawn.

I keep going back and forth between terminators, plague marines or maybe nurgle chosen. I have only started putting one together but he has a wide stance and maybe should go on a terminator base.

I LOVE the Blightkings models! I've been chopping them up for my 40k Chaos SM army for a couple of months now.

The Blightkings' bodies are a bit smaller than Oblits but if you just hack up some of those unused bitz box Terminator weapons (fists, assault cannons, heavy flamers) and plasma pistols you can bulk out their size to look pretty similar to the original Oblits.

I also used the spare body bits from the sprues to make Chaos Spawn. I'm pretty happy with their twisted forms (although one uses an old Terminator torso).
