That would be quite a tall nardole... I'd use the churchill as a base if it was me, like I know he's a bit too fat, but not by all that much really.
A really thin coat wrap could make some of that look like coat bulk. Like if they do the red winter coat he turned up in initially.

And honestly, if it gets us a Nardole, I'm 100% in favour. It's like this incoming wave, I will deal with some outfit inaccuracy, height/dimension fudging if we get companions and great head sculpts. Keep on doing, Character/Al/everyone.
I honestly think it would work; he wears a waistcoat on multiple occasions in S10, so that fits with the Churchill figure and the coat could pass as Nardole's toggled coat if painted up. It's a bit too bulky but not by all that much and it'd certainly be about as close as Romana I accuracy wise.

Just for reference, I'm posting some images together: Nardole's various outfits, the Harry figure, and the Churchill figure.

You definitely just sold me on the Churchill body reuse. But yeah, that is a WIDE Harry coat.

(Side note - I know some people are bothered by that Harry figure. I'm not. Yeah, it's a stretch to represent Sontaran Experiment; he always had the blazer buttoned, etc. But if you google an image of before he gets shot in "Terror of the Zygons", that figure is spot on - including the dramatically wide open coat.)

Also saw a brilliant Dogbolter, using Churchill.

I love a lot of these, but after this year I feel like you're almost being conservative. (Not unfair, it's better to appreciate what Character can and can't do before criticizing, say, Romana's coat length.)

Things I'd ambitiously but realistically change (mostly with new heads):

*Make a new Second Doctor head with THAT hat. Do that instead (Still relevant to Power of the Daleks)
*Ditch Jo Grant, use her body for Liz Shaw
*Ditch the Axon, Make a Primord head and put it on Benton's body.
*Ditch Scarman, use a Delgado Master body for Nyder or Solon (If the latter, swap Morbius Monster in for Voc/Capel.)
*Ditch Sil, use the Primeval black pantsuit to approximate The Rani.

Your Romana 2 paint variant for Nimon would be an essential purchase for me. Great call there.

Said it elsewhere, but more in B&W, if not just the 1st Dr's TARDIS. Also Greel & Sin (in color) of course (an early favorite that really ought to have been reissued already).
Formerly Thete, and Theta Sigma of DWT fora past...

I'm sure it was down to figure production costs, but not doing Greel and Sin with the Talons 4th Doctor was a missed opportunity. But the (large cloaked) limbs and multiple wraps for both kinda hint why they may have to (still) wait. Plus, with this year's releases I get any rerelease being put on hold.

Could a Bracewell body feasibly be used to approximate a Stahlman Primord to go with a Liz Shaw and Season 7 Pertwee in an Inferno set?
