Flying Daemon Prince of Nurgle

It's time for another Daemon Prince! Since I am still out of greenstuff I grabbed my next open project and attached some wings to my Nurgle daemon prince.




Rules:
The new codex Chaos Space Marines comes with a new Daemon Prince. It has a close combat weapon for equipment and has the option to buy a Daemon Weapon- I went for the Black Mace. Rulewise this gives him another D6+1 Attacks and raises his strength to 8- that puts this guy on par with a Bloodthrister (also point wise).

The conversion:
So I sat down and googled some warmaces to get an idea how to approach it. It should not look like an axe and not like a hammer and I think I pulled of a reasonable job. I used the heads of two undead grave guards as the top of the mace and a mace of beastmen ungor for the end. The rest is a brass rod and plastic tubing to give it increase the diameter.
I had the choice between several wings and decided to use the old bloodthirster variant. I bent it to fit and pinned it on the back of the model. The base of the model is an Ultraforge Lord of Pestilence and I even used the base it is delivered with to give him some extra height. I took the liberty to model a bunch of nurglings on it- one of them even sits on the prince's shoulder!
