New Beasts of Nurgle Unleashed

The Beast of Nurgle are getting a new kit and a revamp. It’s more gifts from the Plaguefather!

It’s been a long time coming but the Beasts of Nurgle are finally getting a revamp. Say goodbye to this:

And hello to the new “hotness” that is the Beast of Nurgle.

The new Beast of Nurgle kit is absolutely packed with extras, meaning if you want to field a pack of them you’ll be able to ensure that each looks different. From a variety of exposed innards to flailing tentacles, they’ll be great for converting the rest of your Nurgle Daemons too!

That’s right Nurgle fans – this is just one way to build a Beast of Nurgle. From the sounds of things we’re going to be seeing quite a few variation on this kit. In a lot of ways, it’s sounding like the Chaos Spawn kit with all it’s different options.


Whatever happens, I’m sure the final product will exude an air of …nurgleness that will find it’s way to the tabletop.

Do you like the new Beast of Nurgle kit? Is it an improvement over the old one or do you prefer the previous model?

    I didn’t like the picture in the DG codex but I’m actually really happy with the sculpt now that I’ve seen it.
    Just hoping that the pricing will be ok as it’s only a single model box.

    • crandora

      £25 each 😀

      • Lyca Atteneder

        yeah… so much for hope X(

  • piglette

    Looks like a dinosaur who ate some Nurgle stew.

    • euansmith

      Poxosaurus Rex!

  • benn grimm

    Not sure about the tentacles/worm-pipes, could be the colour scheme, looking forward to getting ahold of the kit and seeing what can be done with it and a liberal application of green stuff.

  • chrach7

    It looks like one of the monsters from the movie Monsters Inc.
    Did Disney buy GW too?

    • Ebsolom

      I agree, it looks far too “family friendly” and cartoon like, lacking the disturbing menace of the previous incarnation.

      • Countdiscount

        I thought the previous incarnation missed the mark of how much these things are described as having the personalities of friendly happy puppies in the lore. This version nails it IMO.

      • euansmith

        As ever, I feel that the ‘Eavy Metal Studio paint job, while doing an excellent job of showing off the detail, doesn’t do much for the ambience of the figure. I’ll look forward to seeing community paint jobs that make this abomination look more abominable and less adorable.

  • Darkcat

    cute looking creature…

  • Spacefrisian

    Looks to clean to be Nurgle.

    • AmorousBadger

      I suspect a more sympathetic paint job would make this look far, far, far more disgusting. Some more muted and muddy colours, with a gloss finish would make this look much less cartoony, I suspect.

  • MightyOrang

    I like the old one better. The new gasbag motif doesn’t appeal to me…

  • MechBattler

    What IS this? The b@stard offspring of Jabba the Hutt and the Sarlacc?

    • euansmith

      How dare you! Jabba and Sarlacc have been in a long and loving relationship, and have got the appropriate documents to prove it from the Imperial Cohabitation Tribunal.

  • Fat Zombie

    a little too cartoony looking for me

  • Dhalgren Schroeder

    Not a fan. It just doesn’t seem to go with the new Nurgle range..from the almost scaley skin, to the head tentacle shapes and the teeth/claws in the tummy mouth. Just not a nice mini.
