When I first decided to choose the ruinous powers over the guardsman, I considered a Nurgle army. There was a great appeal to force that would lumber forward under massive gunfire and could not be stopped. Plague marines are deathless, still rotting in their armour, shrug off the worst of wounds with ease. All are welcome to join the jovial ranks of Grandfather Nurgle. Perhaps I just wasn't ready for all the conversions.
