Death Guard get Plague Marines and a slew of new character models!

via Games Workshop

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.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a 7-man squad of Plague Marines. Each is posed dynamically, with the usual Death Guard accoutrements – cracked, rotting armour revealing grasping tentacles, severed heads displayed proudly on belts, backpacks sloshing with unnatural diseases and pipework leading from rebreathers to Nurgle knows what foul concoctions. There’s an Icon of Despair included, so your unit can feature an icon bearer.

These models feature a wide range of weapons and heads, many of which are designed to fit a specific model – there are 8 boltguns, 4 plague knives, 3 bubotic axes, a blight launcher, a plasma gun, a meltagun, a plaguebelcher, a heavy plaguespewer (with backpack), a mace of contagion, a great plague cleaver, a plague flail, a plasma pistol and a bolt pistol. There are 2 weapon options available for the unit Champion: a specific plaguesword and power fist, and there are a total of 16 bare and helmeted heads. 2 specific arms are included for a model holding a blight grenade, with one hand pulling the pin.

This kit comes as 146 components, and is supplied with 7 Citadel 32mm Round bases.

Biologus Putrifier $25

The great labour of the Death Guard is to spread Nurgle’s bounteous gift to every corner of realspace. The Biologus Putrifiers have a vital role to play in this process, for it is they who refine the batches of diseased slurry brewed by the Foul Blightspawn, and distil them to the utmost potency. From their backs dangle racks of blight grenades, churning with the latest strains of noxious plagues. With each volley of hurled ordnance, their epidemic spreads; injector pistols unleashing concentrated doses of foulness into their targets.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Biologus Putrifier. He’s clad in the usual corrupted, rusting armour of the Death Guard, with plenty of the Nurgle symbolism and sinister emerging tentacles you’d expect (as well as burn marks and melting panels, possibly due to the caustic potions he experiments with) – but the standout feature is the enormous rack of blight grenades that hangs from his back, covered in a dozen or more plague-filled explosive containers ripe for the picking. He wields an injector pistol, which he is posed in the act of reloading with a vial of some unpleasant concoction; a tentacle also grips a plague knife. Even the breathing apparatus on his helmet features a proboscis-like extrusion – all the better for sensing the results of his experiments.

This kit comes as 10 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base.

Plague Marine Icon Bearer $25

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 and boils away skin, yet despite their horrific disfigurements they are fearsome warriors indeed. Their rotting brains are inured to the agony of bodily corruption, making them all but immune to the pain or debilitation caused by battle wounds.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Plague Marine Icon Bearer. Armed with a boltgun, and carrying a plague knife strapped to his backpack, he is dragging an Icon of Despair into the fray, one shaped to resemble the symbol of Nurgle (parts of this symbol being delightfully picked out with a skull and a helmet.) His armour is cracking and rusting due to the sheer force of corruption, and horrible tentacles are oozing from gaps in his right leg. 4 krak grenades are strapped to the front of his armour and, in a lovely touch, he carries a rotting severed head attached to his belt.

This kit comes as 5 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base.

Plague Marine Champion $25

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 and boils away skin, yet despite their horrific disfigurements they are fearsome warriors indeed. Their rotting brains are inured to the agony of bodily corruption, making them all but immune to the pain or debilitation caused by battle wounds.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Plague Marine Champion, who can be added to a unit of Plague Marines. Clad in bulging, rusted power armour, he comes with a choice of two variant heads – one helmeted, and one bare (with an unsettlingly large horn growing out of his face…). Befitting his Champion status, he is decked out in chainmail, with a cloak prominently featuring the symbol of Nurgle. He is armed with a plaguesword and power fist, and includes a boltgun which hangs from his backpack. 2 Nurglings are included – one atop his shoulder, clutching a smoking censer, and one optional Nurgling for his base, comically clad in a Death Guard helmet.
