GW said at the Nova in talks with gamers that Morghasts would feature and we've seen Arkhan the Black in the book itself. Thus far that's all we know for certain. We've no idea if GW will release new Morghasts or if they will change them from their current form in some way (like there's technically two forms of zombiedragon with the regular and the "royal" versions). We also don't know if any of the other Mortarchs will appear in the army either, it could just be Arkhan who appears.



I can actually see a time where the Legions of Nagash could fragment into nothing or evolve into just the Grand Army Death. Right now Flesh Eaters, Nighthaunt and soon Bonereapers will all have taken a chunk out of the Legion. Give GW time and I'm sure we'll see them do a new vampire themed release (new zombies!) which will likely be a nice update to the old vampire models as well as the overall theme of blood drinkers (esp since at present the most bloody faction are Daughters of Khaine)

Vampires do need some non lord vampire models besides Blood Knights......

The new Mortarch and legion does seem to fit more Arkhan's theme - hopefully we will get soem fluff how the older Mortarchs are reacting to the two new ones.

So am I seeing correctly those 4 armed construct guys have a shield option? Is that what the decked out guy on the bottom left of that color scheme page is?

Liking the more heavily armored version if that's what he is, as opposed to the man-e-faces version.

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

The Harvester's legs are longer then it first appears. But the half skeleton cod piece does mask its upper legs from some photo angles.

Those wall sections are way too uniform to be scratch builds, even for the GW studio. If they are not in this book, then there is probably another stand alone expansion like Forbidden power on its way.

Ah man, I really liked these dudes before but jeez, all these new models are even cooler! The alternate build for the 4 limbed guys having helmets instead of the 4 heads and a shield and halberd loadlout looks super cool. And that harvester looks super boss. The other heroes too, the dude on the thrown! My poor wallet...

That doesn’t surprise me, in that it’s a character name as opposed to just a unit of things etc (though yeah they could have easily changed the ‘black’ part if nothing else).
I’ve seen it in a lot of things.

Morghasts certainly pads the book with choice too..

The new morghast can be seen on the right, and I think the walker dude on the right hasn't been leaked before.

It's a monster!



A freaking walking monster of little arms everywhere (there's more on the back). Picking the bones clean and building new warriors!

Then there's that dracoline style mount on the left of that photo with the 3 tails - pure awesome!


Also seeing more of that terrain wall I'm weakening my "do not get hopes up" resolve to the view that it could well be an upcoming terrain pack.


Overall I'm very hyped for this release now! Even more so than at the start of the day! GAH its a whole month until October and could be that GW doesn't release them till the end of that month so even longer to wait!

Wow, each new thing looks dumber than the last. Those halberd guys with the pelvis helmets just look dumb. What benefit would there be to holding the halberd in two hands on the same side? You'd have to let go with one of them in order to swing it anyway. Is that so their arms don't get as tired from carrying them while they're marching? Well, I'm glad I won't be tempted by this army.

The spear tips to the halberds actually makes twin arms make a bit more sense; giving them extra firmness and support at the rear of the weapon arm so that they can likely charge or receive a charge far more effectively. I'd agree that once in actual combat chances are one arm has to let go during the fight to get the full range of motions.

That said perhaps we aren't thinking fantasy enough. Not only does two main arms mean that it can swap between them, it might grip in the main upper arm, but then let go with that arm and let the lower carry a swing or deflect; whilst the other arm grasps at the opponent or blocks a further attack. Then perhaps the lower arm can dislocate itself from the socket. So instead of letting go it just releases that part of itself to let the upper arm carry the motions.
