  • I_am_Alpharius

    Liking the Plague Crawler, even more than I already did, now we’ve got the 360 degree images. Cool kit.

    • Navaren

      Absolutely. Loving the detail on the cannon adjustment gearing.

  • Rafał Pytlak

    Scribbus Wretch? Nauseous Rotbone? What is this, a pair of Scooby Doo saturday morning cartoon villains?

    I swear Gee Dub, your naming is over 9000…

    • I_am_Alpharius

      Yes indeed because GW character names have been so serious and never on the nose in the past….

      – Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka = Margaret Thatcher
      – Sly Marbo = Sylvester Rambo
      – Sanguinius = blood-cautious
      – Abaddon = A-bad-don = a bad teacher
      – Lucius the Eternal = Luscious forever
      – Erebus = Greek deity of darkness
      – Venerable Lord Kroak = errm Ribbit Ribbit
      – Kroq-Gar rides Grymloq = Crocodile riding a Transformer
      – Tiktaq’to = Tic-tac-toe
      – Archaon = Arch Chaos = Chief Chaos
      – Egrimm von Horstmann = He’s Grim of Heap-man
      – Warlord Queek = Warlord Squeek
      – Greasus Goldtooth = Greasey Goldtooth

      I can go on if you like….

      (Lizardmen are goldmine)

      • Rafał Pytlak

        I still find them not as childish and crude as the new DG ones, some are even cute/clever…

        And i never got the Ghazghkull/Thatcher one. Shouldn’t it be Ghazghkull Mar Ghar Ett Thach’a or something?

        • I_am_Alpharius

          You’ve just got to look at the Orks, in either game, across the years to see nothing really changed. There all just as “childish” and “Crude” as the are now.
          – Gorbad Ironclaw = Gore, as in violent/stab/blood so it becomes Stab-bad
          – Gorfang Rotgut = Stab-tooth Rot-gut
          – Arbuttz = Hard buts
          – Orkamungus = play on humungus
          – Orkimedes = play on Archimedes

          Difference now is perhaps because you’ve grown up, likely far more well read than when you were younger, and so notice it more.

      • Chris Koster

        Abandon is actually a biblical name for angle of death.

        • I_am_Alpharius

          Yeah I forgot to add that whilst type about him, yet then I clicked “post”. I’ve edited it in straight away, when I realised. It should show if you refresh.

        • Carlill

          Kurt Angle of death? Oh it’s true, it’s damn true.

      • Rob brown

        Greasus is also a variation on Croeses – the ancient king. Where the phrase “rich as Croeses” comes from.

        • I_am_Alpharius

          Ooo nice – I did not know that. GW doubling down on the punage.

      • luke-vdv

        I don’t find those names cringe-worthy like the two he mentioned apart from the last one. Also, we’re talking about Space Marines here not an Ogre.

  • James Tompsett

    Scribbly Wretch and Blotus Scrotus

    • LankTank

      Don’t you mean Blotus Scrotus and Fectum Rectum?

  • Dennis J. Pechavar

    The Tallyman (the Tallyman)
    Oh, the Tallyman can (the Tallyman can)
    The Tallyman can
    ‘Cause he mixes it with love
    And makes the world taste pestilential
    (Makes the world taste pestilential )

    Come on everyone join in!

  • DoctorBored

    Man, still another week before we see the Plague Marine kit go up for preorder. Between hype and the releases themselves, Death Guard has been a very long, drawn-out release. If you count any of the ‘easy to build’ or Dark Imperium stuff, they’ve practically been coming out for as long as 8th edition has been out!

    Let’s MOVE ON ALREADY. I’m ready for some new models that aren’t Imperium or Chaos!

    Unless of course you do Sisters of Battle or Emperor’s Children. In which case, carry on.

    • LankTank

      The 2 units I am itching to get have been new plague marine kit and Biologis Putrifier. It’s killing me.
      Unfortunately I may have to put them off to buy a Flesh mower Bloat drone as the pieces on the sprue are going to work wonders for a Hellforged predator I’m working on.
