Tabletop Spotlight: Plague Marines

The Plague Marines have invaded stores everywhere – come take a quick look inside the box!

It’s official – the Plague Marines are in stores now. Our friends at Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy brought over a box to check them out in all their plague-filled glory!

In the box you can expect to find 3 sprues for the 7 miniatures you can create inside. You can also build them as different options, but for the most part we considered them dual pose models. They might not have as many different positioning options as a Space Marine kit, but what they lacked in poses they more than made up for in character. These models are full of details and each one tells a story and has a unique look about them. So while you might only have 7 Plague Marines they are going to look vastly different from each other.

We were pretty impressed with them the first time we got a box. They come with a ton of options in their rules section and are going to be a pretty versatile unit on the tabletop. They are tough and be loaded out to handle most combat roles. Plus their armor has mouths with really sharp teeth on them – so you know they are hungry for pain! The Plague Marines are out now so pop in to your FLGS and pick up box for all your Nurgly Needs.

Plague Marines $50

Bloated with festering corruption, Plague Marines form the mainstay of the Death Guard, and unlike many Traitor Legions their numbers have only swollen as the millennia have passed. Sworn to Nurgle’s service, Plague Marines have disgusting, rotted bodies that stink of decay. The putrescent slime that oozes from their sores corrodes armour boils away skin, yet despite their horrific disfigurements they are fearsome warriors indeed.

    About time. Maybe we’ll finally start seeing some variety from all the Dark Imperium boxes…

  • Monty Ithes

    the problem is all these new “multipart” boxes are single pose also.

    • Ravingbantha

      to be fair, most multi-pose models don’t exactly have a ton of variety in torso and leg combinations. The only real variances come from heads and arms, with a few chest plate options. Which is basicly what you get with the new Death Guard stuff. U was a bit disappointed at first, but when you consider the various option you do have, it’s enough to give your army a good look.

  • Why do we have to buy the Aspiring Champion and the Icon Bearer separately? It’s not a proper unit if there’s no Aspiring Champion…
