40K Surprise: New Great Unclean One, Beasts of Nurgle, Plaguebearers Minis!

Just in the time for the new year – Nurgle gets an all new plastic range of demons – including “THE BIG GUY”. Come see!

We know that January will hold both Codex Chaos Daemons for Warhammer 40,000 and Malign Portents for Age of Sigmar. Either of these could use the all new plastic kits for Nurgle.

Take a look.


Mini Closeups

Behold the “Blight Tree”.  Nurgle Terrain perhaps?


They got the excited puppy dog vibe of these – PERFECTLY. Love those expressions.

4 New Plaguebearers. These look to be either a command group, or characters.

Rumors had said that the new plastic Great Unclean One was in the same vein as the Forgeworld giant model.  He’s certainly giant and superfat.

Just for good measure take a look at these Age of Sigmar guys.  Mortal champions on drones, very cool!

~What do you think?

    only the two plaguebearers on the front are new models. The other two arent. they put them there just to keep the numbers constant for the song

      The other two in the video look there’re new too, but just meant to look like the “old” (current) ones .

      • ohhpoong

        i highly doubt it…Those two look extremely similar to the models from the plaguebearers box set as seen in this photo (one on the far left and far right), from the poses to nurglings etc…. http://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/90f9016112756737e8b04e04911794632401dce5d97b66969cdfa784488c863c.jpg

        • Emperorofsarcasm

          Looking closely, the front two are new, the other two not. The front right guy appears to be a musician of sorts and the other is some form of Tallyman.

          • EnTyme

            I’m expecting them to be new Heralds of Nurgle. Khorne and Tzeentch both have heralds based on their lesser daemons, so maybe Nurgle’s getting some, too. I’m also hoping we’ll see a named GUO so Nurgle also has a named Greater Daemon.

          • WHC announced it properly, and features Rotigus the GUO. Nifty alternative parts for him, if you ask me.

          • EnTyme

            Yep. Saw that today. I love the little Nurgling on his base!

  • Stephen Henry IV

    Hopefully most of this stuff is for 40k as well. While it’s safe to assume the GUO and beasts are for 40k too, I have my doubts about the tree and the new herald like characters. The BlightKing riders are most certainly for AoS only which is sad as I would’ve loved to see a heavier harder hitting cavalry rider than the Plague-Drones as they don’t do a whole lot of anything. Hopefully Horticulous will be getting 40k rules as well. I love his model but don’t play AoS.

    • EnTyme

      Not a Daemon player, but are Skullmaster and Bloodmaster useable in 40k? If so, I’d imagine the new Plaguebearer heralds (assuming that’s what they are) will be, too.

      • Stephen Henry IV

        I’m not sure what those are, Skulltaker is a named character for both 40k and AoS so maybe. :/

      • Mathew G. Smith

        Skullmaster and Bloodmaster aren’t named characters, they’re titles meaning “Herald with Juggernaut” and “Herald on foot”. In 40k they just call them heralds, although I wouldn’t be suprised if the new codex changes the names.

  • dark-tadpole

    Loving the look of these new models, unfortunately will be a bit skint in Jan and probably Feb. Need to get selling stuff I suppose. Anyone want a kidney or a lung, slight wear and tear,hardly been used and obviously pro painted.

  • ieyke

    These aren’t remotely as awful as the Death Guard stuff.
    These are mostly good.
    The DG release infantry stuff was mostly a flaming pile of garbage, aside from Mortarion.
    How can the same types of stuff in the same theme be coming from the same company so close together with such a vast disparity in quality?

    • Sybarite

      I think most people liked the DG.

    • Lion El’ Jonson

      Your opinion m8. I’m not 100% happy with some of the overdone models, but they still blow the old GW ones out the water imo.

    • Solvagon

      I think the Terminator kits are awesome (as in “the best non-FW Terminators ever done”), just like the Daemon Engines. The characters and Plague Marines are certainly silly, but work if you convert them a bit (and just use the Plague Marines as a base for character conversions)

    • memitchell

      I could not disagree with you more, if I tried. I very much like the new DG marines (bordering on loving them). That does not mean I don’t respect your right to express your absurdly wrong opinion. I don’t care for 40k so much (it’s a Primarus Marine thing), so I look for excuses to buy DG anyway. Right now, regular DG marines as the Chaos guys in Assassinorum. Next, DG terminators in Space Hulk.

    • Shadowstrife

      Nah mate. I see where you’re coming from, but the only problem with the new DG is how the Primaris scale-creep affects every Marine, Chaos and otherwise.

  • Sonic tooth

    If I collected Nurgle I think I’d spray all my minis with fart spray for authenticity

  • Crevab

    Looking forward to seeing more. I’ve got to know how easy it will be to remove those nests(?) from the tree.

  • Fergie0044

    All looks awesome – and what a fun way to reveal them all too. Good job warhammer tv!

  • Luca Lacchini

    I still have a number of Rogue Trader era horseback riding Chaos Marines. I kid you not.
    Maybe I can upgrade them to Bloat Drones riders. That’d be awesome.

  • I_am_Alpharius

    All looking pretty awesome. Evidently GW are opting to round out the Nurgle theme that has been going on for the last half of the year – not a problem in my book. Korne and Tzeentch both had the same treatment (albeit less 40K Khorne) across both systems over the last two years.

    It would seem obvious, that alongside, or soon after, the 40K Daemon Codex, AoS will be getting a Nurgle centric Battle Tome; ala Blades of Khorne and Disciples of Tzeentch. If GW continue this patter, that would imply that towards the end of 2018 Slaanesh may well be making a forthright return to both systems.

  • Is this all AoS? I could get excited about that!

    • EmperorOfMankind

      This is the beauty of daemons, they exist in both 40k and Age of Sigmar.

      • Shadowstrife

        They exist in our world too, if you practice the rituals correctly… I’ve said too much. They might be listening.

    • EnTyme

      Presumably, only the Blight Kings on Blight Drones will be AoS-specific. The daemons should be usable in both.

  • KonstantinG

    This is the beauty of daemons, they exist in both 40k and Age of Sigmar.

  • Argh arcturus

    I’m glad we’re finally getting decent Beasts. I just wish the Nurgle daemons were better sculpts. the worst are the nurglings.

  • Simon Miller

    the beasts look soooo cute
