The Great Unclean One is out and in stores – and he’s got some Maggotkin Friends with him!

Our friends from Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy are back with a new batch of Nurgley Gifts from Games Workshop:

Now, we’ve gotten a look at the Great Unclean One already and he’s an awesome kit. In fact, our own Aventine has already built and painted him up and he’s a BEAST on the tabletop:

So freakin’ cool! As a kit, it’s down right amazing – it comes in 3 sprues and you’ve got a ton of options for how you want to build this bloated bad-boy.

Now, aside from that awesome kit, we also take a quick look at the Feculent Gnarlmaw, which I must say, is another great kit. Not only that it’s also a lot of fun to use on the tabletop. A side note for the folks that just wanted to use the regular “GW Trees” instead of this new kit – you’re going to be missing out on quite a bit of a model foot print. The Gnarlmaw is larger in terms of the base and that is going to take up more space on the tabletop. That’s important for getting units within range of it’s abilities.

GW also released a few other items this past weekend as well – so watch the video to see those up close. All of the nurgle goodies are out and in stores now!

Great Unclean One $140

The Great Unclean Ones are Nurgle’s mightiest daemons. Towering over their enemies, these living hillocks of rotting flesh lumber across the battlefield swinging their rusted weapons, vomiting streams of filth and unleashing diseased magics upon the foe. Great Unclean Ones are terrifying when roused to wrath, wading through enemy ranks, crushing foes beneath their bulk and pulping survivors with their enormous swords and flails. Some toll rusted summoning bells to draw forth fresh daemons, while others unleash terrible outbreaks of magical plague.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Great Unclean One. This is a truly vile model (in the most positive sense of the word!) – it celebrates its corpulence, with rotten, torn flesh slipping aside on its enormous gut to reveal winding intestines within. 2 different heads are available – one with symmetrical antlers and a foul grin, and one cyclopæan, featuring a hideous daemon tongue which ends in a sinister head – itself featuring a sinister daemon tongue! It can be armed with a massive bilesword or doomsday bell in the right hand, and a large bileblade or plague flail (a remarkable object which is essentially 3 skulls attached to lengths of heavy chain) in its left hand. 6 Nurglings are included, clutching items such as censers, or just hanging about – these can be added to the kit in any way that you see fit.

This model comes as 59 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 130mm Round base. The Great Unclean One can be added to both Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar armies, and the kit can optionally be used to assemble the special character Rotigus.

Horticulous Slimux $55

Gnarled and leathery like a rotted apple left too long in the sun, Horticulous Slimux is a pragmatic and humourless being with a no-nonsense approach to battle and gardening alike. Sat astride his lumbering molluscoid steed – known affectionately to Horticulous as Mulch – the Gardener ploughs ever onward, tilling the foetid soil with his Gruntleplough and casting an experienced eye over the festering flora all around him. In battle, Horticulous conjures the power of Nurgle’s garden and ushers it into reality, overrunning sites of sorcerous power with its boundless fecundity.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Horticulous Slimux. Festooned with grimly jolly detail, this is a model with many, many points of interest – Horticulous himself is a manic-looking chap, spindly yet muscular, with an enormous eye in the centre of his head. He’s clutching his enormous lopping shears, which are used both to tend to his garden and execute enemies, and carries a host of plants, potions, fertilisers and mushrooms, all for later planting. Mulch, his massive snail-like steed, drags his Gruntleplough behind him, attached to his shell with 3 chains. A Nurgling is lashed to a rod, dangling in front of Mulch’s face, encouraging him to lurch ever forward in hope of a tasty snack – the Nurgling appears to find this hilarious!

This model comes as 32 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 105x70mm Round base. Horticulous Slimux can be added to both Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar armies.

Feculent Gnarlmaw $30

Wherever the servants of Nurgle gather in large numbers and the blessed rot begins to set in, Feculent Gnarlmaws push their way up through the blighted soil. These disgusting trees ring with the sorrowful tolling of entropic chimes, belch clouds of daemonic spores, and shed rot-wet blossom to carpet the maggot-churned earth beneath their boughs.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Feculent Gnarlmaw. Dominated by 3 large bulbs describing a Nurgle icon, covered in chitinous bumps and boils (this is not a model for the tryptophobic!), the Gnarlmaw looks almost like some struggling creature rather than the twisted tree it allegedly is. An enormous mouth runs up the centre of the trunk, with dozens of razor-sharp teeth lining it, while the few stunted branches that grow from it feature dismal bells, tentacles and more pustulent boils. A Nurgling is depicted emerging from the rear, and the base of the model is detailed with the skulls of those who have been foolish enough to venture near…

The Feculent Gnarlmaw comes as 6 components, and can be used in games of Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
