What gets me more than just the sores is the other factors--it isn't sores or buboes by themselves but bloated bodies, horns of a distinctly Nurgle style, along side what look exactly like daemon flies. Not another sort of flying insect but very distinctly flies with a familiar paint scheme.

His arm is a squid. In one of the shots you can see the 'head' of it adjoined to his shoulder. It also only has 6 tentacles far as I can see. He as a whole looks very aquatic. Probably worked with seafood, or in the Rogue Trader's 'aquarium'.

-Edit- Upon closer inspection, it's 7 tentacles, and the boil/pustuales actually look like barnacles to me.

Any word on what rules system rogue trader will use??

I would love if it was Shadow Wars 2.0;

Little worried if they take the old route and just make it based off the main rules of 40k but just limit the units you take.

Also I remember seeing a reference to roleplay... Last time they mentioned something like that was the inquisitor game.

Maybe a tribute to Gollum?

You know how it is. Starboard tertiary gun battery's crew always playing pranks on port primary lance battery's crew and vice-versa, and there is no prank more venerable than leaving a dead fish behind your victim's irradiator. So, Bizzy here was scuttling through the service tunnels with that fish, warm and ripe after spending third shift squished between the two sweatiest serfs on elevation team six, when the gellar field collapsed; then Nurgle took one look, er sniff, and said, "That guy!"

Pretty sure it’s “Troute Gillmann”, one of the lost Primarchs.

Emperor exterminated his legion because Fishmen were a joke army at the time, but Troute escaped and established the Dark Hallibut Chapter in a secret floundering.

It could be that the mutants are generic, but they are accompanied by nurgle animals.
Or maybe the animals are just common vermin that's been mutated to become huge.
There are some flea looking things there. Are fleas a nurgle thing? That's a new one for me.

I dunno, but something looks off to me about them. Maybe its the paint scheme, but they don't really look Nurgle to me.


Fleas are a vector for disease, like flies are. So while they haven’t explicitly been used as a Nurgle thing in the past, that is where they would fall if anywhere.

I can see it being the crew that’s been mutated by the warp, but I still think there’s a definite Nurgle touch - if they’ve just turned that might explain why they look almost nurgle but not quite as overtly - not had time to develop that far yet.

The fishes represent the souls of all the people who were in the city when the comet fell, it's apparently a medieval art thing?

This may be related, it may be a throwaway line, from the footnotes of the latest Regimental Standard:

** Pursuant to the location of freight vessel Asinus Proeliax following signal loss during passage through the Nachmund Gauntlet.


It may be another one of those stealthy references to things to come, in this case the name of the vessel the Rogue Trader and company are boarding.

I'm inclined to go with the Geller field failure rather than Nurgle specifically. The big guys just look like crazy mutations rather than Nurgle and the flies/maggots mutated from poorly kept ship stores, blame the dog for the fleas!

Guess we won't know what the designers intentions were till closer to release though.

Fish were a running gag in Mordheim with people having fish on their belts, holding fish, fish in the artwork etc.

Might be the same people or a homage to the great games of 18 years ago.

There are more extensive posts about this in this thread, but if I recall correctly the gist of it is that the Chaos side isn't as heavily corrupted as the recent Nurgle release and therefore must be something else (including non-Chaos stuff).

I can see the argument to a degree, but I think we're just looking at general/undivided Chaos mutation with perhaps a little slant in Nurgle's direction, mostly because of the things you point out. Which I put down to other gods not really having any equivalent for small things in their portfolio. If Khorne had tiny rage-daemons or Slaanesh habitually corrupted house cats into something even more cuddly, yeah. But generally vermin is associated with Nurgle and I think what we're seeing here is the bigger stuff taking more visual cues from Nurgle to tie this side of the box together instead of presenting Chaos in all its variety.

But, we'll see (not) soon enough, I guess.

I really hope they aren't taking all generic chaos manifestations in this direction, because it looks boring. If Chaos undivided will from now on only appeal to fans of Nurgle's aesthetic, that's a tragic loss for the whole range.

Is there really much of a Chaos Undivided range though?

Because there certainly should be.

I miss the old chaos mutations sprue that use to be included with the older plastics, but that's not the way GW seems to want to operate any more.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

It's a shame they dropped the Forsaken kit. It wasn't much of a unit, but boy could you use those bits to mutate other models in new and exciting ways. Like that mutation sprue, but bigger and better in every way.

IIRC, The fish thing had to do with a local town thing, that the fish were a real life allegory to the town where Blance lived.

In addition to that, and that the fish had rained down when the meteor struck Mordheim and there were spontaneous rains of fish as to an environment roll....

If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck... it's a failed Geller field!


I mean sure, it could be, or it could even be both, but there are such Nurgly things in there that assuming otherwise requires more mental gymnastics than going "Probably Nurgle" and being done with it.
