Herald preview is up.

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/12/27/the-third-day-of-nurgle-heraldsgw-homepage-post-3/

It’s the third day of Nurgle – a very special day indeed, given the significance of the number 3 to the God of Plagues! Today, we’re checking out a couple of the new Heralds available to Nurgle armies:

Previously, Nurgle only had one kind of Herald available, known appropriately as a Herald. However, these guys only represented some of the myriad servants available to the God of Plagues, and with the new Codex: Chaos Daemons and Battletome: Maggotkin of Nurgle, Heralds are getting more diverse than ever.

Our favourite has to be the Sloppity Bilepiper, a miniature that sums up the repugnant jollity of Nurgle perfectly. Armed with a set of jolly gutpipes and a marotter (crafted from the remains of the previous Sloppity Bilepiper), these Heralds are the victims and carriers of the Chortling Murrain, a disease that causes its victims to laugh themselves to death. Sloppity Bilepipers cavort and joke with Nurglings, Great Unclean Ones and Beasts of Nurgle (but not Plaguebearers, who lack a sense of humour) and strike horror into the hearts of their mortal foes.



Meanwhile, the Spoilpox Scrivener is a downright dour creature by comparison… It’s the job of the Spoilpox Scriveners to ensure that Plaguebearers meet their tallies, a job they accomplish by relentlessly browbeating and bullying their counterparts with a barrage of insults and commands. On the tabletop, the Spoilpox Scrivener will ensure that your Plaguebearers fight harder, making them a handy strategic lynchpin for the rest of your army.



Make sure to come back tomorrow, when we’ll be taking a look at some of Nurgle’s more mortal (but no less deadly!) servants.

The Second Day of Nurgle: Great Unclean One

Did you spot our special reveal yesterday? If you didn’t get a chance to watch Warhammer Community’s very special Christmas carol, you may have missed some exciting news.

Next year, the forces of Nurgle will rise in the Mortal Realms, and the 41st Millennium, with a virulent host of new models, a new codex for the Chaos Daemons and 2018’s first battletome for Warhammer Age of Sigmar – Maggotkin of Nurgle.

We’ll be looking at some of the awesome new miniatures over the next 7 days, as well as giving away some free wallpapers (we are good to you!). Naturally, we’re starting with Nurgle’s mightiest Daemons – the Great Unclean Ones:


Very soon, the Great Unclean One will be reborn, combining the classic aesthetic you love with the very latest miniatures design technology. This gargantuan beast now lives up to its size in the lore of Warhammer, a living mountain of rotting flesh that’ll tower above the rest of your collection.


Of course, if the Great Unclean one looks familiar, there’s good reason for it – while the design might be modern, it hearkens back to some classic art from Warhammer’s history – most notably, Wayne England’s iconic depiction of Nurgle’s favourite servants:


Of course, good things come in threes, and you’ll be able to use this kit to build one of three variant Great Unclean Ones, each carrying a different set of equipment. The third is a new special character known as Rotigus:


Rotigus is worshipped in the far corners of the Mortal Realms and the 41st Millennium as a generous, life-giving deity of prosperity and fecundity. While Rotigus certainly is generous (as all servants of Nurgle are!), the gifts he gives are foul in nature, and any who pray for his patronage soon see the error of their ways…

You’ll find datasheets and warscrolls for these guys in Codex: Chaos Daemons and Battletome: Maggotkin of Nurgle, updated to properly reflect the expanded weapon options (not to mention bulk!) now available in the kit.

That’s not all – here’s a free wallpaper for you to download and celebrate your love of Nurgle:


There are more gifts on the way, so tune in tomorrow for another look at a new Nurgle kit…

Plague Marines, three sprues

https://www.games-workshop.com/en-NZ/Death-Guard-Plague-Marines-2017

Bloated with festering corruption, Plague Marines form the mainstay of the Death Guard, and unlike many Traitor Legions their numbers have only swollen as the millennia have passed. Sworn to Nurgle’s service, Plague Marines have disgusting, rotted bodies that stink of decay. The putrescent slime that oozes from their sores corrodes armour boils away skin, yet despite their horrific disfigurements they are fearsome warriors indeed.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a 7-man squad of Plague Marines. Each is posed dynamically, with the usual Death Guard accoutrements – cracked, rotting armour revealing grasping tentacles, severed heads displayed proudly on belts, backpacks sloshing with unnatural diseases and pipework leading from rebreathers to Nurgle knows what foul concoctions. There’s an Icon of Despair included, so your unit can feature an icon bearer.

These models feature a wide range of weapons and heads, many of which are designed to fit a specific model – there are 8 boltguns, 4 plague knives, 3 bubotic axes, a blight launcher, a plasma gun, a meltagun, a plaguebelcher, a heavy plaguespewer (with backpack), a mace of contagion, a great plague cleaver, a plague flail, a plasma pistol and a bolt pistol. There are 2 weapon options available for the unit Champion: a specific plaguesword and power fist, and there are a total of 16 bare and helmeted heads. 2 specific arms are included for a model holding a blight grenade, with one hand pulling the pin.

This kit comes as 146 components, and is supplied with 7 Citadel 32mm Round bases.

Death Guard Codex Fluff


Howdy Guys and Girls

Little fluff summary for the DG Codex - enjoy



Legion Organisation

The Death Guard are still a coherent and organised Legion as opposed to most other - in fact, they are now even more than they were at the outbreak of the Heresy, thanks to their resilience and harvesting of loyalist geneseed.

The Legion is divided into seven Plague Companies, who numbers thousands of warriors - utterly dwarfing loyalist Chapters. Each Plague Company has seven Sepsis Cohorts with roughly 700 Plague Marines each, and these Sepsis Cohorts are divided further into two Maledictums with seven companies each.

1st Plague Company are called the Harbingers and are led by Typhus himself. They love their Plague Zombies.
4th Plague Company is ruled by the Eater of Lives, aka Grulgor - cool, although it's weird he isn't leading the 2nd anymore.
6th Plague Company are called "The Ferrymen" or "The Brethren of the Fly", and they garrisons the Plague Fleets.
The 7th are Mortarion's Chosen Sons.

The Death Guard still uses super heavy tanks, drop- and gunships, drop pods aswell as Destroyer Colonies (Marines using alchemical weapons), although they have no rules for them - very cool, and far better than the old "GW Codex ignores fluff without models or FW stuff in their background section".



Timeline

- Starts with the Siege of Terra, although not much info is given about that. Death Guard are the only legion that manages to retreat in good order - for this they are gifted the Plague Planet, aka Barbarus 2.0

- Legion Wars are mentioned, taking some time and thousands of years shall pass where the Dg are rarely seen outside of the Eye of Terror.
- Morty and the 7th use Nurgle Orks (called the Green Death) to attack an Ecclesiarchy world. Yep, Nurgle Orks are a thing again!!
- Black Crusades are mentioned as plan to trigger the Great Rift. Morty sends his warbands to support Abaddon, Typhus fights alongside the Warmaster more than once.
- Battle of Kornovin aka Draigo vs Mortarion - only a pyrrhic victory for the Grey Knights, Morty uses the time to gather fresh forces and plots his next invasion.
- Siege of Vraks is in the timeline!
- Typhus infests Hive Pandorial on Necromunda with the Zombie Plague ...
- Plague in Commoragh

- Great Rift opens - Plague Fleets strike all across the Imperium.
- Plague Wars in Ultramar
- Waaaagh! Badsmak attacks the Scourge Stars - Morty defends them.
- Typhus duels and humbles Huron Blackheart, leaves him alive as a lesson in Nurgle's might and generosity.

- Saim-Hann gets attacked by the 5th and 6th Plague Company. Part of the Craftworld gets infected and cut off by ghost warriors. Nurgle Daemons posses the surviving clan members of that part and turn them into insectile half-breeds. Nurgle-tainted Aeldari Corsairs are a thing now!

- Morty banishes Ka'Bandha using seven corrupted skulls turned into grenades.
- The Eisenstein is sighted beyond the third moon of Lorn's Landing (what!?) and later Morty and his Legion invade the planet. Looks like this was the sixth time the frigatte was seen ...

- Typhus attacks Medusa and turns regions of the planet into cursed quarantine zones.
- 7th Plague Company attacks the fortress monastery of the Minotaurs and taints the gene-seed stocks beyond redemption. They are now on a desperate quest for survival, a crusade across the stars to reach Terra and access purified gene-seed reserves before the Chapter wastes away ...
- Morty and his Deathshroud survive alone against a whole legion of Necrons.
- Oh, and infected Necrons are a thing too ...
- Death Guard plagues are so toxic, not even a Tyranid would want to drink it ...

- Big battle between Iron Warriors and Death Guard, including Perturabo vs Mortarion. Morty wins, Perturabo is grumpy.

Regards,
Lady Atia

Got my hands on the limited edition - far too expensive, but I'm really pleased with it. Feels far better designed than the others I've purchased, really meaty. Nice little touch having the symbol on the cardboard box it comes in.

Read most of the fluff already and I have to say, I'm really impressed. They've done a great job. Some really, really cool bits that I'd love to see expanded upon. This release is impressive beyond my wildest expectations, and as a DG fan I sincerely hope other Traitor Legions (and sub-factions of other races too, not just marines) get this kind of detail. Hopefully it shows GW that if they invest time and money in renewing (or creating) a range, it is going to convince even cynics like me to part with their cash.

I think all of the info is out there now, but in case there are any questions ask away

What is going on with Typhus and the other Death Guard captains?

Typhus is still formally the First Captain of the Death Guard. He and Mortarion have basically reached an arrangement where Typhus does his own thing (they still hate each other) but joins the Death Guard for major campaigns. Mortarion, in a rare moment of patience, allowed him to ragequit the plague planet, because he did not want to repeat the mistakes of his own father. In the timeline, he essentially does his own thing all the time, often at the head of a coalition of other traitor forces (allied warbands of the Purge and the Cleaved for example).

At one point, he duels and humbles (their words) Huron Blackheart, only leaving him alive to show him that Nurgle is both 1) the best and 2) a generally swell guy.

There are other high-ranking captains named and some pop up throughout the book, but none are really expanded upon much other than little nuggets in the timeline. One company is actually ruled over by a gestalt daemon named the 'Eater of Lives' (Grulgor from the HH), which is a really nice touch. Various Vectoriums get some attention showing their specialties, and even Mortarion's defeat at the hands of Draigo is written in a more appropriate fashion (no mention of the heart).

In terms of their organisation, they avoid saying that the Death Guard are flat out the 'only organised Traitor Legion,' so there is definitely room for them to bring back others (WB, IW etc) with significant cohesion also. In the current timeline, Mortarion has only recently duelled and defeated Perturabo and his Iron Warriors Legion.

The duel is (like all Primarch duels basically) a standstill and goes for seven hours, but the Death Guard's resilience and plagues grind down the Iron Warriors, destroying masses of vehicles to the point that Perturabo is forced to call a retreat under the cover of a bunch of detonating trenches. Both sides take massive casualties, it's fought over some the heathen 'Temple of Ascension'. It's very recent in the timeline too, sounds cool, would like a DG vs Iron Warriors novel (nudge nudge Black Library) based around this. 
 
So yeah it's not like Morty smacks down Perturabo, but despite his losses it's a pretty emphatic victory for the DG in a really large-scale conflict against a powerful foe, so I'd chalk it up as a meaningful victory. We know from experience that Perturabo is not exactly fond of calling retreats when he really wants something.
 
Another cool nugget: Mortarion and his Deathshroud hold the breach in a wall against an entire Legion of Necrons (anybody know how many this is? it sounds impressive), and by the time his Legion frantically rush to save him, Mortarion and his boys are standing surrounded by an entire dead Legion of Necrons. Heh.

 Horus Luperkermit wrote:
I took some notes in the Miniwargaming Vid about Mortarion. I will only go into new stuff and not the statline and abilities we've already seen.
The Lantern is 18" Pistol 1 with S8 AP-3 and 3 Damage. It also draws an 18" ''line'' between Morty and the unit he's shooting at, additionally hitting all other units that stand in this line.
Phosphex Bombs are 6" Grenade 2D6 S5 AP-1 D1
Lastly the Lantern has 2 attack modes. The first is called ''Eviscerating Blow" and is Strenght 2x AP-4 and D6 Damage. The second mode is called "Reaping Scythe" and is Strenght User AP-2 and 1 damage but each attack counts as 3. Both modes also count as plague weapons. Lastly he is the Primarch of the DG rerolling Hitroles of 1 for all DG units including himself in 7" and if he dies he explodes on a 4+ dealing D3 Mortal wounds in 7" around him to all Non-Deathguard Units. The rest is as we know it. Please correct me if I heard something wrong

 rvd1ofakind wrote:

Motarion has really good things going for him.
He seems to destroy hordes, killing about 30 horde units a turn not counting morale.
Also he can kill big stuff even easier than magnus.
AND he pulses mortal wounds every turn.
AND he removes toughness.
Bastard has 5 weapons to choose from:
Pistol with "beam"(can hit mutiple units) 1, S8, -3, 3
Grenade 2D6, S5, -1, 1
Nurglings like always D6, S2, 0, 1,
Silence has 2 modes:
anti big stuff: S user x2, -4, D6
anti horde 3x for every attack, S user, -2, 1
Re-roll 1s to hit for deathguard(like magnus but no fail save re-roll)
Psychic: knows 3 contagion, deny 3, casts 2. Can't take warp time :(

Mathammer wise he is a bit worse than Magnus on paper due to not casting warptime. His damage is better though and he can take on hordes as well as big dudes so he is waaaay more versatile.. Also the -1T aura and the pulsating 3 mortal wounds are hard to judge.

Eldenfirefly wrote:
Plague Surgeon has an aura that gives infantry units within 3 inches a reroll on a 1 for their DR save. And they are elite choice and quite cheap too.

And for those who were worried Mortarion might be singled out and gunned down by heavy weapons. Deathshroud Terminators have 4++ save, DR, 2 wounds, and they can take wounds for any character near to them. So, yeah, all those lascannon shots directed at Mortarion can be rediracted at the Deathshroud terminators first!

Blightlord Terminators are T5, DR, 2W terminators that kind take the regular combi weapons stuff as well as the plague marine weapons like blight launchers and such and they are only a few points more expensive than regular CSM termninators.

The bloat drone with fleshmower sounds so fun to use! It adds 6 attacks to the Bloat drones attacks ... 6 !!! And its str user+2, so that's str 8 attacks on an uninjured bloat drone. This fleshmower will literally mow down stuff. lol Bloat drone has 3 attacks base, so at full health, it will do 9 Str 8 attacks. lol

The blight Hauler is a really interesting unit too. fast attack choice, moves 10 inches. 8 wounds, does not degrade, has 5++ as well as DR, packs 3 ranged weapons and 1 melee. And it gives a special aura that is 7 inches radius. Infantry units wholly within its aura get cover save! So, your 5 man plague marine unit close to the Blight Hauler is now a 2+ armor save as it trudges up the board. Nice! Its really cheap too. Under 100 points base. @@

The Plague burst crawler is really cheap too (its only slightly over 100 points base!) and quite hitty! Firstly, its really resilient, becuase it has T8, 3+ save and DR and 12 wounds. And it has a fair amount of heavy weaponery. You can swop the side sponstones into basically the equivalent of 36 inch range lascannons. And the Plague burst mortar is the heavy duty weapon. It does d6 hits, Str 8, AP -2. d3 damage at range 12 to 48 inches and you don't need line of sight to fire it! lol. With this, a gun line deathguard army is a distinct possibility.

Also, confirmed on the twitter of Max (the eavy metal painter who did Mortarion), Morty does come with two heads - one aiming with his pistol, and one not. Torvak Kyre first noticed it on the Mortarion topic so credit to him for picking up on it first. A little disappointing they didn't do something more different - no rebreather, or a grim reaper style one - but still a nice touch.

Codex: Death Guard: First Look


The Death Guard are almost here, and with them, yet another new codex for Warhammer 40,000.



We know you’ve been asking to see more of the Death Guard ever since we teased them back in March, and today, your patience is rewarded:



This is one of the most exciting armies of the new edition, and you can expect to see loads of new and revamped units (you may be able to pick out a few of them from the picture, if you’re not too distracted by just how awesome Mortarion looks leading his Legion).



Codex: Death Guard will be out in September, with Codex: Adeptus Mechanicus not far behind. We’ll be previewing both books, in detail, in advance of their release, so make sure to keep coming back to Warhammer Community to make sure you don’t miss any of it.

Yes, I think that this head is awful, too. But as long as there will be other helmets in the terminator kit I dont mind. Same with the plague marine models for which I prefer MK3 helmets. To each their own though, I can see people liking the mad grin heads and do appreciate there will be some different styles for the models

Codex SM will be released at the end of July followed by Codex GK and CSM according to GW. So it looks like end of August the earliest, maybe September for the book if the models come before it. I dont mind, they have been quite open with Primaris models info and I dont think this will be different with DG

The problem is that all they've done is tease Death Guard for months. It has long gotten boring, compared to Primaris who they just showed outright.

Working on it

Loving this thread so far, but some speculation abut the unit types from the table thing.

The Seercult sounds interesting, especially since several types of nurgle sorcerers were noted in the DG pamphlet in DI. Maybe we'll see something like the Crypteks of 5th and 6th?

Pestigors do seem possible, but I dont think we'll see a huge beast or fly swarms.

Claw corps just seems like nurgle aligned raptors, I wouldn't put money on anything, but the Chem Legions... those could be an alternative build to the plague terminator kit.

Just my 2 cents

Dahk'ash Dynasty ~4500pts
War Coven of the Coruscating Gaze ~2500pts
Vectorium of the Thrice-Plagued ~3000pts
Cult of the Stoneborn Serpent

We do already have a huge creature option via forgeworld, though it looks like we might get something similar going off the foot picture.

I kinda hope pestigors aren't a thing. We have poxwalkers and presumably will keep normal cultists as well. I don't really need a third non space marine troop choice with models. But that's just me.

I'm curious what options plague marines might end up with. A few shots indicate melee focused plague marines might be a potential option (the flail guys). Those could be chosen equivalents as well.

I really wish we could see more terminators. Or a better shot of morty. The vehicle is nice but not really what gets me excited for DG.

Interesting, i'll have to see how that pans out...I still haven't based my nurglings so if they move to 50mm there will be some more room on the bases to add the extra solo nurglings. I'm still puzzled by the poxwalker bases though, cause the easy to build kit is said to contain 6 32mm bases. And i've already done all my poxwalkers on 25mm...so I hope they don't pull some kind of switcheroo on us.

I hope so, whether its maggoths or a great unclean one. A GUO would be cool though cause its kind of overdue for AoS and 40k...and the forgeworld one is so cool I think a well done plastic version would be worthwhile. So long as it looks like a giant nurgling i'll be happy. But if it's something different/new then thats fine too.

I want to see what a Ku'gath model will look like.

Riding around of a giant Nurgling pulled mobile laboratory.
That would be a model to see.

He is featured in the Dark Imperium model too.
Along with Mortarion and Typhus.

I kinda expect all 3 to get models.

I'm very interested in the pestigors and non astartes cultists!

Chances are I won't pick up any of the the regular DG stuff (They aren't mubflavornof heresy, and I wouldn't bring the passion thatthose of you who have been chosen by nurgle so often possess) but those kits seem the mostly likely to have some fun kot bashy type options in them.

Im also just curious to see what from all of those transfers over to fantasy

Could those possibly be God-specific cultists in that listing? I'd be down for that, especially if they get some features or abilities to separate them from the Undivided cultists.

Interesting that in those lists it also refers to the Beasts of Nurgle units as Warherds. Would be interesting if the ret conned Beasts of Nurgle into Nurgle Minotaur type creatures, which would be cool alongside Pestigors.

I don't think they will, they aren't modeled with bolt pistols on them and GW tends to like having what you see is what you get with their models. And the new upcoming kit is already a done deal. But we know there are other options in the build because of the dude with the flail. So while they might not get their bolt pistols, maybe they will get some other powerful close range stuff. Or i'm wrong and the flail guy is not part of a different plague marine datasheet...which is very possible. Honestly I think they should somehow be tougher/harder to kill..and not get more attacks. The concept of plague marines strikes me as a slightly slower moving tank of a marine that can absorb tremendous punishment...moreso than they can now. But also are a bit more clumsy and do less damage...thus keeping their damage output where it is now. Even if they don't get their bolt pistols back they need some kind of slight buff...or another unit that can work in conjunction with them that makes them more viable as a choice.

Thanks for putting all information together. I am looking forward to Mortarion which looks more interesting to me than Magnus.

I also see much conversion potential for my 30k stuff ... I will try to put together a small band of DG MKIII Marines which only show early signs of corruption. Hopefully the Plague Marine plastic set will add some more useful material ...
