First we have Mortarion in all his gory-glory!

Mortarion, Primarch of the Death Guard and  Daemon Prince of Nurgle. His model is oozing…with details! I’m digging all the pox-marks and “battle” damage on the model.

Mortarion’s weapons are also a thing of beauty. The Scythe has been taunting us for a while – it’ looks amazing!

Here’s a big group shot of some of the new miniatures. How about that awesome new Death Guard Mortar? And who’s that guy front and center? So much awesome in one shot!

Here’s a good look at some of the new Death Guard “Plague Brethren” miniatures. These definitely have a 30k feel to them. The model on the left has a very similar pose as the Betrayal at Calth “Hero” model. The model int he middle is using a Meltagun from the Heresy era as well.

These miniatures also have a ton of details going on and they look pretty Nurgly to me! Anyone else excited form the release of these new Death Guard miniatures?


September looks to be the month when the Death Guard arrive. The gifts of the plaguefather are almost here!

  • Ravingbantha

    “Plague Brethren”?

    • Special overpriced box of 3 plague marines that comes with art post cards and a booklet about the design of the pm

  • Moke

    I’d be 50/50 between this and the Forgeworld model… but the Forgeworld model won’t be INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT TO TRANSPORT.

    Looks like I’m getting the Forgeworld one.

    • chris harrison

      Not that difficult, just use some pluck-foam. That stuff is the best for odd shaped miniatures.

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      Just magnetize the wings.

      • Moke

        I tried that with the Fateweaver model. I might be terrible at magnetising (which is very possible) or it might be that it’s really hard to magnetise that sort of really long feature 🙁

        • I’ve found that a combination of magnets and pin right next to the magnet keeps the longer/heavier pieces in place better 🙂

          • Moke

            Oo I haven’t experimented with pinning. Will look into it. thanks for the tip 🙂

  • DoctorBored

    It’s interesting. We’ve got Magnus and Mortarion and Guilliman.

    I wonder if we’ll see Russ, Johnson, Fulgrim, Angron, and Sanguinius? The 4 big Chaos Primarchs and the 4 Space Marine chapters that have their own Codexes.

    • Moke

      Well Sanguinius is dead but his mini would be amaaaaazing. They could make Primaris Sanguinius?

      • DoctorBored

        I could see them making some ridiculous fluff to resurrect him. “He was in stasis all along!” and whatnot. I mean, nobody thought they’d actually bring back any primarchs, and yet here we are.

        Honestly, I think this gives a point against people thinking we’ll see Space Wolves, Blood Angels, and Dark Angels any time soon. I really don’t see GW stopping at 1 Primarch.

        • Graham Roden

          There’s so much fun to be had with all of the primarchs. If nothing else Gulliman needs someone other than his mad chaos brothers to talk to.

          • Patrick John Magee

            I’ve had this theory about the black rage for some time now. We know that the Blood Angels have a higher amount of Librarians and psychic potential when compared to other chapters. We also know that Sanguinius was very psychically attuned to all his sons. What if, one of Sanguinius’ unknown powers was that he could astral project? Further to that, for the past 10k years, his disembodied spirit has been wandering from son to son, trying to find a habitable body, the ones that fail as a host end up being victims of the Black Rage. Maybe the Sanguinor is the physical manifestation of the latent want for his return, and a possible answer of a body for him to return to?

          • stinkoman

            Sanguinor is Sanguinius reborn. what else is he actually?

          • Patrick John Magee

            Potentially just a sanguinary guard member sealed in armour like what was done in unremembered empire.

        • Jared van Kell

          Read the end of Red Fury and you will see why they can bring him back. Also look on the inside cover of the rule book and you will see a winged angel in flight wearing a loin cloth and holding a sword whilst a Primaris marine in the bottom left fires his bolt rifle.
          Just so you know, I can confirm that it is Sanguinius.

          • ZeeLobby

            I mean they could bring in James Swallow’s stuff, but it’s been consistently referred to as his personal head cannon. I’m not sure how much GW really bought into anything he wrote. So while I’m sure he left the door open, they probably wouldn’t even use that one, and instead come up with some bizarre insane solution.

          • Jared van Kell

            It will happen when Ka’Bandha attacks Ba’al with overwhelming force. If anyone is going to cause Sanguinius to return from death it will be his mortal enemy.

      • Fergie0044

        They can make up any fluff reason they want … but it will rob the horus heresy of its impact and ultimately (imo) cheapen the setting.

        Sang, ferrus, horus and curze should all stay dead. 14 Primarchs is plenty.

        • IronGryphon

          Nah, we need Ferrus Manus back.

          • Nah lol

          • Fergie0044

            I always saw Ferrus and Sang’s deaths as sort of book ending the war nicely. One at the start and one at the end.

    • Demonhunt

      Most likely next one is Lionel, followed by Fulgrim & then Russ (edit. though Khan may also be a likely bet)

      • Jared van Kell

        I would love to see the Khan return riding a gigantic jetbike. I would definitely get that model.

    • I_am_Alpharius

      Getting more Primarch’s was a given once GW fired the gun with Magnus. It’s really a matter of when and what order more than anything. My bets, on the remaining ones, would be in order would be as below; with “dead” primarchs being brought back/reincarnated in some subtable convoluted ways:

      Adeptus Astartes:
      – Leman Russ
      – Lion El’Jonson
      – Vulkan (maybe swapped with Sanguinus)
      – Sanguinius
      – Rogal Dorn
      – Jaghatai Khan
      – Corax
      – Ferrus Manus

      Heretic Astartes
      – Fulgrim (maybe swapped with Angron
      – Angron
      – Lorgar
      – Alpharius/Omegon (one or both)
      – Konrad Curze
      – Horus Lupercal*

      *Reckon he’ll be brought back, perhaps not even last, but after Angron.

      • Jani Jalassalo

        well Horus can’t be bringed back since got blasted into oblivion nor i think Manus could be bringed back. It would undermine the 1st death in begin of 30k.

        • I_am_Alpharius

          Say hello the ultimate deus ex machina plot device known as Chaos – literally anything goes. I can fathom scenarios were both a brought back.

      • Red_Five_Standing_By

        It is probably going to alternate between the two Loyal/Chaos.

        My guess is that the Lion is actually next, since he will complicate just about everything Guilliman is doing, thus creating for some fun stories and plot developments.

        Given that World Eaters and Emperor’s Children were included in the Chaos Codex, it is a fair bet that their new models, codexes and Primarchs will be saved for a later date.

        The dead Heretic Primarchs will also probably be saved until later.

        So that leaves, Perturabo, Lorgar and – maybe – Alpharius/Omegon.

        Both the Iron Warriors and the Word Bearers could be used as a vehicle to update several old kits, like the Obliterators, Havocs, Possessed, Mutilators and Spawn, as well as giving us a more varied Cultist kit. Beyond that, we could see new super possessed kits, as well as more Dino Bots.

        • I_am_Alpharius

          My impression from the various WH-Com/WD interviews with the designers is that Emperors Children and World Eaters won’t be getting solo codex’s. The premise/explanation being that those two legions are really legions any longer, in the same way Death Guard and Thousand Son are. The Emperors Children and World Eaters were shattered as fighting forces; EC by large down to their own internal excess and both after the Skalathrax incident, where Kharn first went off on one.

          • SYSTem050

            All it takes though is change in the development team and suddenly things can switch.

            Personally I would rather some updated generic kits first before going more legion focused. Even though I would like a fulgrim model

      • Jabberwokk

        I wonder if Xeno’s will be getting a primarchish equivalent like a full powered C’tan or fully revitilized Khaine.

        • I_am_Alpharius

          Can’t see why not. I suppose the Yncarne is essentially akin to a Primarch.

          • Jabberwokk

            I’m looking forward to seeing what GW is going to come up with…whoa haven’t said that in a while…

  • Tlhswallow RGN

    Is his gun the lantern?

  • I_am_Alpharius

    Mortarion looking nicer and nicer (or should that rotter and rotter) with each new picture. With a weeny bit of luck my WD should drop on the doormat tomorrow; hope the UK Bank Holiday weekend will not delay it.

  • Matt C

    that is one busy model. Also…he has a head, right?

    • Strategery.

      i think if the color scheme was simplified, it would help a LOT.

  • chris harrison

    Gaaah! Why did I have to sell of my chaos space marines! If I had the money, I would be camping out in front of my FLGS awaiting the arrival of a buttload of preorders. praise Nurgle…

  • OctopusVolcano

    Meh, show me some admech leaks and I’m interested 🙂
