A look at the corpulescent and pox-riddled pre-orders that will kick off 2018 in a diseased slurry of releases.

Well the 7 Days of Nurgle are drawing to a close, just in time for a while Nurgle New Year. Yes, the most merry of monstrosities, the chortling Chaos god, the delightful daemon himself, Nurgle is celebrating a whole slew of new releases. Many of them have that Rankin and Bass or Bakshi feel to them–slimy and gross but charming and fill of vibrant personality. You can’t help but feel that the delight of Nurgle’s forces is infectious. And now that his demonic forces are getting a book, come see what’s new Nurgle’s next.

Next week, you’ll be able to pre-order the first wave of Nurgle-y goodness, kicking off with one of Warhammer’s most iconic Daemons – the Great Unclean One:

Beware fatty

And of course with the Great Unclean One you’ll also get the bits you need to make Rotigus, the fancy character equivalent of Kairos Fateweaver or Skarbrand. Just look at those fangly maws.


There are at least three. Speaking of things in threes:

Did you know that you’ll also be able to pick up Horticulous Slimux separately? As well as being a great option in the new Nurgle battletome (and even featuring some upgraded abilities), Horticulous will now be available in Warhammer 40,000 thanks to the new Chaos Daemons codex.

He is mentioned right alongside the Spoilpox Scrivener and Sloppily Bilepiper, so it seems he is indeed a Herald of sorts. And one that makes the Gnarlmaws grow.

The big pre-orders though, are of course the Chaos Daemons Codex and the Maggotkin of Nurgle Battletome.


Look for these books next week–we’ll be sure to bring you what news of them drops. In the meantime, have a happy new year!

Free coughing, wheezing breaths with every new Nurgle release.
