Thanks for the info. Any idea what is so special about thee Plague Brethren that they would be online exclusive? Are they resin or something?

Mortarion and the Codex? That's it? C'mon GW.

(I'm not counting a $40, 3-figure webstore set as a 'release' of any kind.)

Very grateful Warhams, thank you.

Bit miffed though that once the book and Mort are released there will be a week of no Death Guard releases... Need those new Terminators!

Warhams, any chance of telling us whether there is a collectors and an equivalent to the Primaris edition DG codex, or the collectors is just the one with a different cover?

Well Magnus is £80, so around the same ball park for Daemon Primarch price.

The question would be though: does the +£5 mean that Morty is predicted to be better than Magnus or are they just trying to squeeze as much money as they can out of this release?

I made photos and will scan the foldout page asap. DG models in it but smallish. I love the terminators. There is also a power-armoured chem tank with spray gun wielding guy among other nice stuff. Cannot guarantee that imgur wont mess with the quality. Uploading now, give me ~30-60 min. Will post link to album

He probably will be better than Magnus. Because otherwise everyone who already owns Magnus wouldn't bother buying Mortarion if he was worse.

GW brilliance, they know Morty+Codex costs a half army and will take a month to paint. Then release the other models in time for the next paycheck.

Based on previous releases the other DG models will be in the weeks after. WD does not show all releases anymore. Im sure 16th and maybe even 26th will bring the other kits. Dont worry

I can also confirm that the Mortarion leak is from the back cover of WD

Right then, here's a guess at Morty's rules since we're all just hanging about:

M*
WS 2+
BS 2+
S 8
T 8
W 20
A *
Ld 10
Sv 3+

Remaining wounds:
10-20+ 12" 5A
5-9 10" 4A
1-4 8" 3A

Melee Sx2 AP-4 D3 plague weapon

Range 18" S8 AP-4 Dd6 when in half range roll two dice for damage and pick the highest

DttFE

5+ invul, 5+ DR

Re-roll hit rolls of a 1 for friendly DeathGuard units and friendly Death Guard units gain +1 to their DR rolls (or maybe just re-roll failed DR rolls?) within 7"

Psyker, can manifest 2 powers from Dark hereticus, Death Guard and Smite.


Does that seem like a good prediction to anyone?

I'm expecting massive damage per hit from Silence. It's too powerful a weapon to be that underwhelming, reapers should one hit kill wherever possible

I was basing it off of Magnus' staff since that thing is more powerful than Morty's scythe.

Based off what exactly? Magnus may indeed be more powerful than Mortarion, but I would not bet against Silence.

Besides, this guy is an Angel of Death. A Grim Reaper. He should be doing massive amounts of damage per hit when it makes contact. You'll be wrong on this one.

Magnus is primarily a psychic power house. I'd bet Mortarion is far superior in close combat.

Based off the fact that Magnus can hit harder than Morty given the fact that he is the most powerful psyker in the galaxy, he's a god damn giant and he's a primarch. I believed it was widely accepted that, with Magnus' power, he could take on absolutely anyone in the galaxy and win, maybe even Emps himself.

Yeah, he's a powerful psyker. That does not mean that his weapon is more powerful than Silence.

The power of a weapon is dictated by 1. How hard the user can swing the weapon and 2. The power within the weapon itself.

1. Magnus is far stronger than any of the Primarchs and him becoming a DP made him even stronger still.
2. Magnus' blade is imbued with the power of the second most powerful psyker in the galaxy (1st if we don't count the 'dead') whilst Morty's is imbued with his minor psychic might and some of Nurgles power.

I don't see how Silence could be as powerful.

Maaan those Plague Brethren are lame. $40 for mirrored and slightly tweaked starter set models. I get that digital design makes production easier, but they're barely modified from the previous versions of the same sculpts. Why is the rest of the DG stuff not coming until October?

You're right, I don't see how a xenotech scythe mutated into a daemon weapon over 10,000 years, held by a Primarch that is the incarnation of death and looks like a literal grim reaper, being more of a martial character than Magnus, could possibly compare. Found the Magnus fan.

I'll happily wager that you're wrong - even if the damage is random, I expect it to be at least D6 minimum, with a higher threshold. We'll see.
