AoS Models: Neave & Horticulous Are Awesomely Insane

Today, we shall take a detailed look at two of the craziest minis GW has produced of late – the stars of Blightwar.

 

Everyone says GW makes some of the best minis around. Today I want to take a look at two of the newest and see what makes them tick.

Neave Blacktalon – Female Stormcasts

Neave Blacktalon – from the Knights-Zephyros. She is armed with Whirlwind Axes, and a Boltstorm Pistol. While the Stormcast look is now quite expected, here we see GW pushing it in a new direction. A female direction.  We’ve already seen another female Stormcast mini, Angharad Brightshield from Shadespire who is incidentally armed completely differently as a Liberator.  We see the same Stormcast themes of large curving armor shapes, lightning and animal motifs, and weapon designs taken from other minis. The mini has a fast action packed pose, and in a rarity, a helmetless option. Looking over the contents of the Stormcast Eternals battletome – there is no mention of any “Knight Zephyros” order or unit. However Neave is armed and equiped quite closely to the Vanguard Hunters. What I most like about Neave is the no-nonsense vibe the model gives off. She’s there to do a job and she’s gonna get it done. There’s no cheesecake, uber-boobs, string bikini nonsense or knock-knee posing.  I like what I see and hope GW gives us not a cliche all-female unit, but instead just add a female model here and there to all future Stormcast units. An integrated Stormcast Eternal force with both genders mixed in makes a greater reflection of mankind’s eternal champions, than having the ladies off the side on a pedestal.

Horticulous Slimux, Nurgle’s Gardener

Welcome to the insane Garden of Nurgle. I’ve seen a lot of funky Nurgle minis over the years from the Beasts of Nurgle to the awesomely odd Glottkin, but this guy here is the cutest.  Just look at some of these details:

He’s chewing on a bone

He’s got a little metal kettle with a “Feed me Seymour” plant in it.

He’s riding a Garden Snail of Nurgle (kind of)

He’s using it to pull a plow.

He’s got a skull growing a bunch of mushrooms back there.

He’s got a giant pair of garden clippers.

He steers the snail with a dangling Nurgling who seems kind of cool with it.

Heck, the snail seems kind of cool with the whole thing too.

This miniature is just utter hilarious insanity.  I love that you can get variety in tone from the “ultra serious scary” Skarbrand all the way over to this guy.  It shows not only the breadth of what Chaos can be, but a confident GW design department who can put out something like this.  Nurgle from his earliest days has always had a contradictory circus ringleader-crazy family-grandfatherly love and affection vibe totally at odds with the corruption and grossness. It’s one of that aspects that makes the entire Nurgle concept and visual range so fun.

I was really hoping to get a massive Nurgle Siege Tower and instead I got a daemonic gardener riding a snail.  Yet somehow I’m even happier.

~What do you think of the mini designs and where GW is going?

  • Rita-Audrey Jones

    Yeah, seeing this model makes me SO happy! We know that stormcasts can be any gender for some time. But it was so great to see actual named women! Makes THIS fan SO happy!

    • SacTownBrian

      How do you know that the existing SE aren’t female. The boob armor on Neave is a bit rediculous and very unrealistic. Look at female body builders, no need for extreme armor, just needs to be fitted.

      • Schnauzer

        Female body builders are wrongly labeled as female.

        Half-men, Half-Ogres, Uruk-Hai, and those dudes in Baldur’s Gate telling you how they are going to smash your head in, are much better names for them.

        • Tzfyr

          You know, you *can* keep your backwards opinion to yourself.

          • Schnauzer

            I am just keeping it natural.

            Unlike female body builders.

          • Tzfyr

            Ugh. Okay, you think you’re funny – I get it. Kinda torturing the definition of ‘a joke’ in order to put out your sexism.

          • Schnauzer

            Hate being male much?

          • Tzfyr

            Nope. But I do find your comments here pathetic. There are people out in this world making life choices that are positive for them, and then there’s people like you who judge and jeer and fling insults even though it has no bearing on your own life. At best your comments are worthless and unproductive, at worst they’re going to make someone feel worse about themselves for no good reason. And I mean, do you really look at yourself in the mirror and say, ‘Yes, this is who I want to be’?

            You don’t need to answer that – another smarmy retort I’ll put down to wounded pride, and I’m not looking for you to break down and beg redemption. But I hope that at some point you’ll have a quiet think about this.

          • Schnauzer

            Long reply of defeat.

            Well done!

        • Kyle Johnstone

          why everyone feed da troll??

          • Schnauzer

            Because sexless onliners can’t leave me be.

        • Talos2

          I think someone needs the birds and the bees talk. They seem to be under the impression that muscle mass is some way connected to gender. Poor parenting if you ask me

          • Schnauzer

            It is, and if they can’t see that, they will be gambling each time they take off a pair of pants from their next sexual encounter.

          • GrenAcid

            Dont wanna burst your bubble but after high school biology class you should know that muscule mass is conected to testosterone levels meaning that MAN have it more.
            Science is against you gender-cultists.

      • Shenordak

        Just this once, for the eternals, I would say that “boobplates” are warranted, unlike virtually every other instance. The male stormcast are wearing fitted, very masculine, muscle cuirasses, reminiscent of classical greek bronze sculptures. It is very appropriate then for the female stormcast to wear feminine muscle cuirasses. In all honesty though, they could have made a better design than the uni-breast used here…

        • Munn

          Personally I agree with point A, if any armor ever SHOULD have booblate it’s the army that model their armor after magic mike. Second point: I disagree, boobcups are silly and almost always look terrible and pointy. This is what an averagely endowed woman looks like wearing a shirt with a collar, more or less, so makes sense.

      • rudugugu

        The armours were supposed to be containers for the souls of the dead after the end times. All races of the old world, not just humans.

        • I_am_Alpharius

          Erm not quiet. There not just “souls” they are physical beings and they don’t come from warriors of the “End Times”.

          They are heroic members of the mortal races which Sigmar plucked from the realms before their death in battle, the reason of his choosing can be varied (valour in battle, faith, pure hearted goodness etc…). He then remoulds them completely into mighty warriors, much larger than normal humanoids and immensely powerful. The first bunch of warriors were taken in the last years of the Age of Myth as Sigmar knew he’d lost the war against Chaos. More warriors are then taken throughout the Age of Chaos from the remnant of Mortals left behind/not-retreated to the Celestial Realm.

          Additionally while these warriors can come from any of the mortal races the vast majority are picked from the races of men throughout the realms. Hence why we don’t see other races in any overt manner.

      • kevinharoun

        Yeah, glad they are including women, but the boob armor just looks absurd.

      • Alastair Meek

        Realism doesn’t come into it. Most of the armour design GW does is appalling – they’ve got many, many blade catching surfaces that channel weapons the wrong way, for example. So it’s about “Does it look good”. Now, you certainly CAN have a model that looks good without it being obviously female, but then you run into the problem that it won’t be interpreted that way. The Western world has a tendency to look at something, and unless it’s obviously female, will assume it’s male. So yes, existing Stormcast can certainly be declared to be female. But unless you keep telling people that ad nauseam, they’ll go “him”. People looking at the models on the shelf will go “him”. This means that SOMETHING about the model has to ‘sell’ the fact that it’s female. Faces can do it, but GW’s not all that good at doing female faces, and even then, it’s a tiny detail. It doesn’t need to be string bikinis – that’s ridiculous, for the most part, but there needs to be SOMETHING there to show it – and at a 32mm scale, that’s gonna need to be a bit exagerated.

    • Aaditya Rangan

      I too am eager for more named female characters! The village elder “Katiya” in “Warbeast” by Gav Thorpe was very cool. One of the stormcast (a judicator I believe) even mentions that her spirit was exceptionally strong, and that sigmar should look forward to her reforging.

    • rudugugu

      Did you just assume xe’s gender? Digusting. Educate yourself.

      • Grasshopper

        Phew, buddy, I’m not sure if you wanted to be funny. I know, it’s the internet, you want to make a joke, be edgy and all that stuff. It’s okay, I get it. I have been there too. But, come on, we can be better then that. You can voice your opinion (whatever it may be) in a manner where we can all discuss that – and not in a manner where you sound like a buffoon that seems to have a problem with all the gender discussion nowadays. Please, just say clearly what your opinion is and don’t hide behind ill suited jokes. Really, I’m interested and listening.

        • Andy Wise

          I think Rudugugu may have been joking…

    • Sonic tooth

      Are you assuming her gender?

  • OrksIsMadeFerRockin

    Fivehead

  • Son_of_Corax_XIX

    Wow it must be a slow news day basically describing what we can see in the pics. GWs community site is definitely doing its job going off the articles lately.

    • kevinharoun

      First timer, eh?

      • Son_of_Corax_XIX

        Not at all just surprised it’s got this bad

  • benn grimm

    I love it how you equate the existence of a female sigmarine model with craziness. Wow guys, they’re letting girls in, that’s some crazy shiznit right there, I’m literally losing my mind about how insane that is…

    • BaronSnakPak

      Plenty of people use “insane” as a kicker adjective, not as an indicator of genuine madness.

      ie: This mini looks cool; This mini looks insanely cool.

      • benn grimm

        Sick blud, I guess it’s all about the wicked context. Raw.

        • euansmith

          Standard.

          • Andy Wise

            obvs

          • Frank Krifka

            so basic

    • Schnauzer

      Girls have germs. Known fact.

      Been sticking with it since I was 5. That was 43 years ago…

      • benn grimm

        Aka cooties. Stick with it bro, not long now…

      • dave long island

        You were MGTOW when MGTOW wasn’t cool… lol… 🙂

      • Dave Satterthwaite

        ‘The 48 year old virgin, sequel to the hit movie, starring Schnauzer’

        • Schnauzer

          The amount of sexless gamers on this site is impressive.

          Pink or purple hairs, which color do you prefer?

          • Dave Satterthwaite

            Neither, as I have a hot blonde girl here at home. Not a 2D one like yours mate, but an actual female.

          • Schnauzer

            No you have not.

          • Dave Satterthwaite

            Oh yes I do matey 😉

          • Schnauzer

            Clocking in at 300 lbs?

    • Razerfree

      I’m happy about female models but at the same time it’s a shame they went with the “classic” boob armour instead of something more realistic.

      • Alastair Meek

        Out of curiosity, do you look at all of the AoS models and say “Oh, that armour’s not realistic”? Because it isn’t. Or is it just the female armour?

        • Razerfree

          Obviously I don’t because after all it’s a fantasy setting and even though it’s based on medieval times there’s a lot of room for creativity in the design and such. I’m just tired of seeing these kinds of sexualised armour sets in games where the design has no other purpose than to say “here are my boobs”.

          • Alastair Meek

            She’s really not all that sexualised (which is a completely different complaint to ‘it’s not realistic’). She’s just got a boobshelf. IF you think “HAs chest bumps” is sexualised, then there’s a problem in what you think sexualisation is. (Do you think women going around in t shirts is sexualised? BEcause that’s what she looks like. Yes, that’s not realistic for plate armour, but we’ve covered that). The problem is that our perception is biased. IF you show a 32mm model that doesn’t have obvious femininity, it WILL be assumed to be male. Boobplate is the easiest option for that. Yes, it makes no sense (although note that she at least has the slightly less problematic boob shelf rather than cups) to have that on plate armour. But if you don’t have it, the model is going to be assumed to be a guy. So if the designers want to go “Yeah, these are female”, they cannot just do the sensible thing of having it being the same s the male armour.

          • Razerfree

            It is different but in this case it belongs together. Due to its oversexualisation it has become unrealistic. And I have no issue with them having boobs per se, it’s just that no one would make that kind of armour.

            It’s not that big of an issue making a 32mm model look feminine. There are a lot of other features that show it in this Sigmarite like the slim body armour compared to the male counterpart, the hips, the face, the boots etc.

          • Alastair Meek

            No one would make ANY of the armour worn by ANY of the Stormcast. It’s all terrible. No, seriously, it is.

            Slim body armour only looks female if you already ‘see’ the model as female. NArrow waist CAN work, but then you start getting into significantly deformed figures, which is a bigger problem. The face…yeah, that doesn’t say “female” to me. Neither do the boots.

            It’s not impossible to do, by any means. But it IS difficult. And there’s a significant difference between a boobshelf that just makes her look like she’s wearing cloth rather than metal, and actual sexualisation. Essentially, by saying this model is sexualised, you are saying the average shirt is sexualised. Yes, it’s not realistic, and yes, it makes no sense as armour, but neither does any of the other armour (The Stormcast armour would be a heavy, immovible deathtrap, realistically. Good thing this is a high fantasy game, and cool imagry and cues take precedence!).

          • Razerfree

            Bro you’re making a huge fuss about a comment someone made on the internet on a plastic miniature. There are enough examples of cool looking realistic female models both in GWs and other companies repertoire. A shirt is obviously not sexualised. The shirt automatically adapts to the body. There’s no shirt with extra boob space. Here the armor was “crafted” to adapt to (supposed) huge breasts. But hey, this is just my opinion.

          • Alastair Meek

            Ok, “Bro”. This isn’t a ‘huge fuss’. You declared that your problem was with realism. That’s fine, but none of the armour is realistic. It’s about a model that really isn’t all that sexualised. Yes, it’s got unrealistic boob plate. Just like the Male stormcast have unrealistic Pech Plates. You don’t like the miniature? Cool, fine. But it’s not a “shame” that they’ve not gone for realism, because if they HAD gone for realism, it wouldn’t have fit with the stormcast at all. Potenitally, it’s a “shame” that they went with boobplate, but that’s not a realism issue. Not going to continue posting, “bro”, so feel free to have to the last word.

          • Razerfree

            Seems someone got offended by the bro… If it isn’t a huge fuss why are you 4 comments in saying the same thing over and over again? The pech plates aren’t unrealistic, since they are based on roman armour. And it’s not the lack of realism that bothered me, since you’re gonna have lots of it anyway in a fantasy setting. It’s the lack of creativity involved in putting giant boob plates on a model, I’m tired of seeing this oversexualised trend in the games industry.

            To top it off, you’re giving me the last word as if I was the one trying to change YOUR mind? Nice reversal try there “bro”. Better wash off that sweaty keyboard of yours from all that online warrior work.

          • Severius_Tolluck

            Aside from the feminine hips and smaller frame…

          • Ghachii

            There’s also the fact that the existing Stormcast armour deliberately accentuates the masculine features and proportions. It’s not geneder-neutral by any stretch of the imagination. So unless they were going to redesign the default Stormcast armour to be completely androgynous, a feminine equivalent was needed.

      • Jabberwokk

        Ah man I knew that complaint was coming and you did not disappoint.

        Can we, in the spirit of fairness, complain about ‘pec plate and ‘ab plate too?

        • Razerfree

          Yes you can.

      • benn grimm

        Cool. I guess though, looking at the rest of the range that ‘realistic’ wasn’t high on the list of priorities.

        • Razerfree

          Well it’s mostly realistic in a fantasy setting. Just the one or two things that look out of place (like the entire sigmarines thing).

      • Spacefrisian

        Like they did with sisters of averlorn?

        • Razerfree

          Yes those models look more like something you’d expect from female elves.

    • Jabberwokk

      I play an entire faction led predominantly by women in Hordes for 4 years. So Meh?

      Neat model though.

      • benn grimm

        It’s alright, I guess, if you like that sort of thing. I take an equal opportunities stance on Sigmarines; doesn’t matter the gender, skin color, species, etc, I dislike them all the same. Cept that bird they have working for them. That’s a cool looking bird.

        • Jabberwokk

          I bought in for the Dragonspawn. ‘Cause nids. The ladies were a happy bonus. Though Abyslonia won me over.

          Moreover at least I can respect you for applying your dislike equally. And I agree it is a helluva bird.

          I wonder if it tastes like chicken?

          • benn grimm

            The Abyslonia in flight is pretty awesome, the other one I’m not so sure about. Think Archangel is probably my fave LoE ‘mini’, Thagrosh is pretty nice too.

            I had ostrich a while ago, strangely enough was a bit like beef. I’d imagine this bird would be more like that. Chicken or beef or chickeny beef, all sound pretty feasible. As long as it’s grilled and well seasoned I’m not too bothered. Actually kinda feeling a bit hungry now…

          • Jabberwokk

            ya me too. i want something that’s chickeny beef. That’s my new favorite flavor now.

    • Spacefrisian

      All i think is female Primaris Spacemarines, make it happen GW, would make Cawl an even bigger miracle genius for stabilising that process.

      • benn grimm

        It’s kinda sad in this day n age that we still don’t have female space marines, hell, we don’t even have a current SoB range. It’s almost as if the mostly male staff catering to a mostly male fan base doesn’t really care much for gender equality in their creative output…

  • The Lost One

    I clicked the article expecting rules. What I got was an article telling me what the pictures show me. Great article bell, keep up the great work

    • Graymantle

      The title of the article literally tells you it’s about the models…

  • Gustav

    That Slimux is fantastic. I’ll happily pay top dollar to model and paint that critter. But one question — if you attack it, are you a-salting it? I’ll show myself out.

    • dave long island

      “I’m here all week folks. Try the veal”… lol

    • Andy Wise

      Beautiful. I wish more comments were peppered with great puns like that.

      • Gustav

        Well, comments on BOLS are often sluggish in coming.

        • Andy Wise

          I’ve been wracking my brains to think of a pun involving the word condiment. Any takers?

          • Gustav

            They’ll ketchup soon.

          • Andy Wise

            awesome sauce.

          • Gustav

            I’ll relish that the pun passed the mustard. 😉

          • Andy Wise

            If we don’t pack this in soon we’re going to get ourselves in a right pickle.

    • Well done, well done indeed.

  • ZeeLobby

    I like the female model, though she is rocking a massive forehead. The slug. I dunno. I mean it’s reminiscent of GW’s oldest lines as far as goofiness goes, but it kind of seems all over the place. Maybe a better paint job. Their in-house studio is all about rainbows.

    • Yea, I dunno, but for a few years ‘EavyMetal has some kind of ‘oversmooth’ paintjobs I can’t really explain. But they make the models look too cartoony for my taste, although the models themselves are awesome.

      I know right, who am I, the rainbow-painter, to talk about cartoony-ness? 😀

      • Jabberwokk

        Can you provide an example of a more realistic paint job on a similar model for context? I’d kill to paint that well.

    • dave long island

      The mini is too busy.

      • Schnauzer

        Actually, it looks like he is chillin’ on that slug.

    • benn grimm

      Spam head encourages spam buying. Didn’t you know?

  • Schnauzer

    The male pig in me wishes for stoves chained to their backs…

    • Munn

      And here we have an example of a comment just creepy enough to not know if he’s joking. If this was a social gathering we would have all laughed awkwardly and dispersed by now.

      • Schnauzer

        So many sore toes.
        Males in the western world should wear dresses.
        Mandatory dresses.

        The stormcast female is really cool though, in spite not having a stove…

        • rudugugu

          because dress wearing arabs are so far ahead when it comes to respecting wamen

          • Schnauzer

            And yet western “males” want more of them here…

          • rudugugu

            demand more men in dresses… complain about too many men in dresses… please do tell more

          • Schnauzer

            You need to learn the difference between western “males” insecure of their gender, and those who wears it for real.

        • nurglitch

          I’m not sure I’m masculine enough to dress as a True Scotsman.

          • Jabberwokk

            clever

          • Schnauzer

            Only if you wear pink panties.

          • Spacefrisian

            No worries than, that Scottish dress is a 19th century thing.

      • Krev_Grazl

        Agreed

    • Dave Satterthwaite

      I’m putting $100 on ‘forever alone’ for this creeper.

      • Schnauzer

        You just lost.

        Good news is that you can keep the hundred you didn’t own in the first place.

  • luke-vdv

    Looks like a Sister of Silence without a topknot. Now we have Sigmarines and Sisters of Sigmar.

    • euansmith

      I want them to have a Canoness armed with an actual cannon.

  • euansmith
  • Rafał Pytlak

    That Sigmarine looks like Angron on a diet. Same pose, same gorechild in hands…

    • Emprah

      Long lost sister! Angrenette.

  • rudugugu

    GW ruined the stormcast lore when they released the vanguard wing, making them actual humans inside those armours. It’s been going downhill ever since.

    • Emprah

      I doubt they had a thing beside being a GW version of non-GW cheap Space Marine knockoffs.

    • Graymantle

      They’ve always been humans inside. Have you ever read or listened to any of the fiction?

  • carl

    You were MGTOW when MGTOW wasn’t cool… lol… 🙂

  • Mike X (Official)

    +1 for boobplate. It’s a fantasy game, get over the armored breast cups. My girlfriend would be pissed if they un-sexied female models.

  • Son_of_Corax_XIX

    Half these comments make me laugh, what does it matter if the mini is male or female aslong as it looks cool?
    Why do we have to obsesses about its gender?

    • Emprah

      Because feeding the troll is their game. They virtue signal, even though no woman ever comes here to read it and the troll just gets fatter.

      • Son_of_Corax_XIX

        The attitude in these comments is what puts women off actively getting into the hobby as they get obsessed when its female model and reinforce the negative connotations of people who do it as sex crazed, never touched a woman, people.
        If you look at most armies in historical combat ie middle ages women were mostly limited to Archers at best but not really front line troops

    • m3g4tr0n

      Why does GW assume people want a female Stormcast?

      • Schnauzer

        While I am a pig, if women can fight, give them a sword.

        God knows, there are too many “men” here wishing they had the same courage and strength.

      • Graymantle

        Should they assume people DON’T want female Stormcast? Do you not think there would be female heroes worthy of reforging?

        • m3g4tr0n

          Honestly, I’m not sure. I play orks, so I don’t really care if there are female Stormcasts, or if the lore supports it. What I do care about is if they don’t sell well, it won’t be because the sculpts are poor (Sisters of Battle), or the rules bad. It’ll be because “men are misogynists and hate women.” I’d prefer to not have to listen to it, however entertaining it is.

  • Emprah

    The stormcast looks ok, but I’m not a fan of sigmarines.

    But that snail is adorable. It is propably the best GW mini I have seen in some time, capturing Papa Nurgle’s jolly essence in one big slimy slug of pus.

    If you are a fan of Nurgle, than you can’t like it. If you are not a fan of Nurgle, you won’t understand its greatness.

      I dunno. The old stuff always was a mix of goofy and serious. You’d have a silly looking mount ridden by a terrifying Chaos Warrior. Or a seriously sickening daemon with goofy nurglings doing summersaults. This one is just pure goofy. Maybe if they took off the bug-eyed rider smoking a bone-cigar.

      • Luca Lacchini

        Agreed. Lacks the scary-disturbing-demonic factor, to me.
        It’s a great sculpt for a wicked fairy creature. Not so much for a demon of bodily decay and corruption.

    • Grasshopper

      Nurgle is love! Nurgle is life (kind of)! <3

  • benvoliothefirst

    Regarding Slimux: It’s new! It’s different! It’s creative!

    It’s NOT a Stormcast!

    I LOVE it!

  • Malisteen

    I do love both of these a lot. I’m hopeful that the slug rider makes its way to 40k sooner rather than later. As for the stormcast, I might have to convert her for use in my Black Legion.

  • I_am_Alpharius

    Calling it now. Whenever another large Stormcast Eternal release happens and another Chamber is “opened”, that Chamber will be a entirely female centric themed one.

    • thereturnofsuppuppers

      I want to see a ‘transport’ chamber. With armoured rhino like creatures and things that act like tanks in 40k

      • I_am_Alpharius

        That would be cool – the transport idea. GW have open the door to the idea of transports with the Khardron’s stuff. So why not let other AoS armies have something akin to that.

  • Sonic tooth

    Think the snail is stupid looking but I was never into nurgle anyway

  • Jabberwokk

    I like…

    Big…

    AXES and I can not lie
    The other brothas can just die
    That when a girl charges in with a heavy duty brace
    Deliverin’ an axe blade to your face

  • Talos2

    Aren’t stormcasts meant to be heroes of old sealed into suits of armour with no clue as to who is inside that are saved from death time and again by sigmar. So how are we now getting ones with faces? Or has that fluff changed?

    • Severius_Tolluck

      Yeah I liked the idea that you couldn’t tell if it was a man or woman beneath the armor, that they in death were all reborn as equals. Oh well, didn’t last long as this is like the 5th type without a helmet now.

    • In all of the novels I’ve read they don’t always wear their armor. I’ve never read anywhere where they are sealed inside of their suit and cannot remove their helmets.

      • Talos2

        Fair enough. Im pretty sure that’s how they were described by the guys doing Warhammer tv when it was released, and I’m pretty sure some wd articles described them in that way too. But wd has a long history of not knowing the fluff. But I bow to those that have actually read the actual stories

    • I_am_Alpharius

      No – never were what you’ve described. I’ve commented above (below?) on a similar misunderstanding.

    • Graymantle

      They’re just resurrected dudes, not Rubric Marines.

  • Admiral Raptor

    I need this wonderful snail riding demon farmer! He is so gribbly and so happy and just the best! I was excited for Morty coming out, but honestly he just can’t compare.

  • Severius_Tolluck

    Then a million sister players cried out and were suddenly silenced.

  • MrLodgik

    Just like the new stuff from 40k, I think the design team as bias towards chaos. Don’t mistake me I love the new mini, she looks great but she is missing something to make her unique, just like the new primaris. Then you look at Horticulous and WOW this models looks amazing and filled with details that make him unique, just like the new plague marine…

    Somebody needs to step up their game and make the new unit unique and crazy come on G-DUB they are still your best sellers !

    • thereturnofsuppuppers

      I guess they are trying to design them to be easy to paint. Nurgle can be quite detailed and still easy to splodge inks on for beginners.

      It would be nice to have a bit more characters like the lord relictor.

  • I’m digging this set overall but I would have loved some sort of Pox-Walker type guys or Nurgle Chaos Warriors as opposed to more Plague Bearers. I hope they have some more stuff in the pipeline but I am pretty sure I will pick this up. Between the original Getting Started set and this one I hope to have a decent Stormcast force and then we’ll see about Nurgle. I really just want to paint them, not sure about fielding them at the moment.

  • Sean Sakamoto

    That snail reminds me of Tamatoa.

  • Livan

    people are demanding sisters yet they find unrealistic boob armor a turn down on other models. Never gonna get it.
