Greetings fellow wargamers! When GW first released their Blight Drones at the release of the Chaos Daemons codex, I knew there was conversion gold potential in the product! My mind was swimming with visions of Fly Princes of Nurgle, Beasts of Nurgle, Spawn, and Drones! I was struck by how similar the basic shapes of the Plague Drone of Nurgle by GW and the Blight Drone of Nurgle by Forgeworld were, in fact. But how would they scale up? That was the question I set out to answer . .. .
Now, that being said, a model like this DOES have it's uses. It could make a great poor man's proxy until someone had enough money sit aside to buy a larger drone. You could build it on your own for less than $30 bucks! (or you can just buy it here and save yourself the labor and time!)
It could make an interesting 'stealth drone' maybe with a little less armor, a slightly weaker gun, few hull points, and maybe the stealth or shrouded special rule, or maybe even the scout rule! Something to sit it apart from it's bigger brother.
