RUN RUN RUN!!!  Glotkin’s first snapshot just broke all over the net!  Behold “Nurgle’s Earthly Emmisaries”.  It’s small and grainy, but it’s still hard to make out the exact form of the model.  It looks to be bigger than a Giant, but smaller than a Stompa.  Something in the same family as a large Great Unclean One.   The asymetrical “arms” and the vagueness of it’s belly/head area is difficult to understand.  Maybe there are riders up top?

Here’ they come in all of Nurgle’s putrid glory. The Lords of Icehorn Peak are ready for your credit card!

Bloab Rotspawn
Morbidex Twiceborn
Orghotts Daemonspew $76

Lord of the Icehorn Peak tribes and master of the pox maggoths, Orghotts Daemonspew was born of an unholy union between a Great Unclean One and a human witch. His one and only wish is to claim what he perceives to be his birthright by becoming a true daemon.
This 73-piece plastic kit makes one Orhotts Daemonspew riding the pox maggoth, Whippermaw. A mighty Chaos Warrior, Orghotts is clad in corroded Chaos armour and armed with the Rotaxes, a pair of long-handled weapons which are infused with poison.


Morbidex Twiceborn is a powerful, vengeful warrior of Chaos. As a baby he was born into flames and hideously scarred only to be reborn in the image of Nurgle many years later beneath an avalanche of suppurating, Nurgling flesh.
This 73-piece plastic kit makes one Morbidex Twiceborn riding the pox maggoth, Tripletongue. Clad in corroded Chaos armour and armed with a great weapon, Morbidex’s face is squat and horned and boasts a toothy, leering smile that resembles the grin found on the faces of the legions of Nurglings that follow him.

From afar, the chaos sorcerer Bloab Rotspawned appears to be constantly surrounded by swarms of unnatural insects. Only his fellow warriors in the Icehorn tribe know that Bloab is in fact the swarm, and the swarm is Bloab.
This 73-piece plastic kit makes one Bloab Rotspawned riding the pox maggoth, Bilespurter. Clad in corroded Chaos armour and armed with a great weapon, Bloab’s status as living vessel of Father Nurgle is depicted in every part of the miniature. His face is bloated and swollen by fat, wriggling maggots and daemonflies billow about him like a cloak.

Daemonspew’s Bundle $334

This bundle contains 52 plastic Citadel miniatures, including: 1 Gutrot Spume, 20 Warriors of Chaos, 20 Marauders of Chaos, 10 Putrid Blightkings and 1 Chaos Warshine.

Twiceborn’s Bundle $282 
This bundle contains 43 plastic Citadel miniatures, including: 1 Herald of Nurgle, 30 Plaguebearers of Nurgle, 6 Plague Drones of Nurgle and 6 bases of Nurglings.

Rotspawned’s Bundle $272.25 
This bundle contains 55 plastic Citadel miniatures, including: 1 Great Bray Shaman, 20 Bestigors, 30 Gors, 3 Minotaurs and 1 Cygor.

WOW, you really need to check out the 360’s of these.  Extra points to the sculptors for the oozing butt-stinger…eeeww!

Things are starting to gel as we head into November.  Here’s the latest on the weeks ahead:


End Times: Chaos (3 weeks)
Week 1: BlightKings / Gutrot Spume
Week 2: Maggot Lords
Week 3: Glotkin / End Times:Chaos Book

40k: Blood Angels (1 week)
There is still some chatter out there regarding Necrons, but Blood Angels talk is in the majority. In any case this looks like a quick 1 week release slot stuffed into the schedule like Grey Knights was.  So for the fans, whoever gets the spot will be coming first, but don’t look for too many miniatures to be released alongside it.

Chaos Part 2 (2 weeks)
Week 1: Unknown
Week 2: Unknown

This Chaos wave is not believed to be linked to the End Times series, so is expected to have dual use models for both WFB and 40K.  Usual suspects listed in rumor chatter are the Greater Deamons, but there is talk of Nurgle getting much more love from the studio this time around than the other 3 powers.  GUO chatter is higher than the others suspects.

This takes us into mid November with the usual:
– GW holiday bundles,
– Terrain special deals,
– and last (because there aren’t any more movies) The Hobbit releases.

End Times 3 (January 2015)
Book 3 featuring the Skaven and some “additional Chaos” picks up the trail and kicks off a very big eventful year for Warhammer Fantasy.

Necrons (Early-mid Q1)
The last of the hardcover 40K codices arrives.  If the order was reversed, this could be Blood Angels. Look for this release to be longer with more kits released than the 40K Codex in late October.


Much more on 2015 in a bit…

Q4 Rumor Roundup Full Thread

Rumor Oddball: There is isolated talk of a pair of Tyranid kits before the new year, but no corroborating sources.

40K News


Solar Auxilia Lasrifle Section
Lasrifle section is the first release £68.00 for 20

Quote Originally Posted by Forgeworld
The image of Solar Auxilia Lasrifle Sections arrayed in multiple, disciplined ranks standing firm against hordes of alien foes is a celebrated one, but it is far from the only way in which they are deployed. Infantry Tercios are adept at fighting in loose order or launching massed assaults across the most hostile of the galaxy’s battlefields.
The Solar Auxilia Lasrifle Section is a complete multi-part resin kit containing twenty models. Designed by Edgar Skomorowski, each model comes numbered with a corresponding lasrifle, as well as optional Sergeant, Vexilla and Vox Operator components. These models are available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Thursday 30th October.

That’s all this week.  
Good hunting!
