AoS: New Nurgle Goodies Inbound

Nurgle is getting even MORE goodies! Check out what else is coming down the pipe!

The gifts of Nurgle aren’t stopping. Looks like even more Nurgle boxes are invading your FLGS:

The Top row has two of the new kits we’ve seen so far – the Pusgolye Blightlords and the Great Unclean One. The middle row looks like it’s got a new unit/tree on the far right. And the bottom row has a look at the new Beast of Nurgle Box as well as Nurglings, and 3 of the new characters.

 

Anyone else wondering what the heck that Tree-thing is? It’s clearly Nurgley-themed with the 3 bulbous growths and the bell. It’s time to get excite Nurgle-fans! January is just days away and it’s looking like Nurgle is going to make a BIG impact early next year.

 

What do you make of the nurgle releases so far? Any guesses as to what the heck that tree thing is?

  • SacTownBrian

    I am far more excited about what is coming for Death then to see more creative ways to expose entrails and model slime and pus.

    • Laurence J Sinclair

      I’m sure that plenty of Death dudes will have new ways to expose entrails as well!

    • Sonic tooth

      More stormcast

    • Shadowstrife

      Vampires have the potential to be the most badass new AOS faction.
      But knowing GW, Malign Portents will probably focus on spectral or skeleton units only.

      • SacTownBrian

        Yes to this!

  • AEZ

    Love those new models.. just wish my Sylvaneth had gotten a ton of releases like that.

    • dark-tadpole

      Can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic or not, Sylvaneth did get loads of realeases when they were done.

      • AEZ

        Not sarcastic.. how many releases did we get? And how many do we see here for another one of the chaos releases?
        We got Alarielle, Drycha, branchwych, Revenants and hunters unless I’m mistaken. That is 5 releases 2 of which are special characters. I can nearly count double that for nurgle the upcoming weeks.

        • dark-tadpole

          I count 8 new releases for nurgle, this includes 1 special character that has already been released and they are now releasing it sepately, Horticulous, so 7 brand new releases. I don’t think that’s a ton more than Sylvaneth.

          I would of liked more for sylvaneth as this is my other army but saying this release is a ton more is a stretch.

          It is another chaos release, and they have had a lot released recently, but for people like me who collect one god, Nurgle, the tzeentch and Khorne releases didn’t mean much to me.

          • AEZ

            It’s still quite a bit more %-tage wise.. on a line up that had more to start with (only 3 for sylvaneth and several more for Nurgle). Total boxes must be nearly 2x the number sylvaneth has…

  • Huntard

    That terrain looking bloated Nurgle symbol tree has my attention

  • 3dken

    It’s a Blight Tree, it was in the carol video.

  • Killer Bee

    isn’t the tree a Blight tree as seen in the Nurgle xmas video?

  • disqus_HUXMdKxsPG

    No not two pusgoyle blightkimgs to a box!

    • dark-tadpole

      I’ll be buying two boxes anyway, one to make the two guys and one to make a third guy and the Lord character that is the alternative build.

  • Marco

    Long live Warhammer Fantasy and the Old World!

    • wibbling

      Oh give over and grow up. Warhammer isn’t coming back. 5 times share value and £12m in profits proves the decision was right to bin it.

      • Oggthrok

        ..and, you can even play in The Old World using Age of Sigmar rules, and it’s apparently very fun.

        • Hagwert

          That is actually a very popular option at the FLGS I go to …loose order battles but in the old setting seems to hit the spot for lots of people.

          • Oggthrok

            I almost hope in the future this becomes a semi-official alternate setting, much like how Flames of War can accommodate both WWII and 1980s-hypothetical combat.

            If it doesn’t, well, the AOS universe is so vast, you could honestly have the Empire just as it was in any given realm. I can just now have my all Steam Tank and Handgunner army of my dreams, without ruining the established fluff for just how many of those the Emperor has. 😀

          • Apocryphus

            Yeah, you got me there

          • Lyca Atteneder

            At least you can still play those factions in AoS. Allthough I’m sad as well that Tomb Kings and Bretonnians aren’t produced anymore :/
            But maybe… just maybe we’ll see something at least resembling TK when this Malign Portents thingy is revealed

          • Apocryphus

            Yeah, the primary issue is that the models are no longer available. I have probably a 3rd (or less) of a Tomb Kings army and their removal blindsided me. I’m hoping Malign Portents will bring some unique Death stuff too, as I’m just not a fan of the Transylvanian undead motif.

          • Lyca Atteneder

            Ouch… that’s really bad. I personally never played them but just when I was thinking I wanted to start them… well… no more minis.

            Hoping so myself. I’m also not the greatest fan of the whole ‘big bad vampire and his minions’ theme but I have to admit that I pretty much liked the stuff they got during the End Times. Maybe they’ll go with this design a little more?

          • Apocryphus

            The End Times models were great, I’d definately get excited for more of that.

          • Lyca Atteneder

            You’re not alone.

      Derp.

    • Lyca Atteneder

      Oh please stop whining allready and get over it.
      Times change, things change… and so do fictional scenarios.

  • memitchell

    Dammit, Nurgle! I can’t quitcha.

  • Zamerion

    The pic is from AzarFreymann, in warhammer french forum.

    But thank you for naming me

  • Andrew B

    I love how most of the models have a Nurgling counterpart mimicking them.

  • Marco

    Long live Mordheim!

  • piglette

    The Death Guard release was okay, some hits some misses, but this Nurgle Daemon release is fantastic. It’s a good day to be a follower of Grandfather.

  • Lyca Atteneder

    Nurgle getting his own scenery… NICE

  • Youme

    Getting way too cartoony and goofy looking. Everything should be modeled after the Great Unclean one. If it doesn’t make you want to retch, it shouldn’t be Nurgle!
