Games Workshop is teasing a pair of new Heralds for Nurgle that are coming in the new year!

Sloppity Bilepiper and Spoilpox Scrivener – those are the names of the new Nurgle Heralds that are coming to the tabletop for both 40k and AoS.

“…Sloppity Bilepiper, a miniature that sums up the repugnant jollity of Nurgle perfectly. Armed with a set of jolly gutpipes and a marotter (crafted from the remains of the previous Sloppity Bilepiper), these Heralds are the victims and carriers of the Chortling Murrain, a disease that causes its victims to laugh themselves to death. Sloppity Bilepipers cavort and joke with Nurglings, Great Unclean Ones and Beasts of Nurgle (but not Plaguebearers, who lack a sense of humour) and strike horror into the hearts of their mortal foes.”

“…Spoilpox Scrivener is a downright dour creature by comparison… It’s the job of the Spoilpox Scriveners to ensure that Plaguebearers meet their tallies, a job they accomplish by relentlessly browbeating and bullying their counterparts with a barrage of insults and commands. On the tabletop, the Spoilpox Scrivener will ensure that your Plaguebearers fight harder, making them a handy strategic lynchpin for the rest of your army.”

Jovial and pustulant – that pretty much sums up the these two Nurgle miniatures. You’ll be able to find their rules in the upcoming Codex: Chaos Daemons and Battletome: Maggotkin of Nurgle. Also be sure to hop over to Warhammer Community to get a free Nurgle-Themed Wallpaper as well!
