This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Lord of Blights. Bloated and bursting, like most of the Rotbringers, his silhouette is noticeably dominated by the makeshift gallow rack nailed to his back, from which 3 ripening heads dangle. He wields an enormous, dented bubotic hammer along with a vermid shield – these are both covered in the appropriate Nurgle icons, with the shield being especially spiked and disease-ridden.
His belt, over which his unpleasantly distended and torn belly flops, features a plague knife. The aforementioned belly is disgorging maggots at an alarming rate – it’s difficult to tell how the Lord of Blights feels about this, as his face is covered almost entirely by his helmet, through which one eye socket peers curiously.
The Lord of Blights comes as 7 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base.
This multi-part plastic kit contains everything you need to assemble the Glottkin, wielding Flailing Tentacles, Poison-Slick Scythe and able to launch horrifying, corrosive Pestilent Torrents. It includes a Citadel 130mm Round base.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 2 Pusgoyle Blightlords. Each is mounted on an enormous Rot Fly, a revolting insect with 4 brittle wings that drips and drizzles foul fluids onto the battlefield as they drone through the skies. These flies are bloated and spindly at the same time, with numerous beady eyes and horrible fangs.
The Blightlords themselves are particularly grim – 1 features a toothed maw in his distended belly, the other a series of veins, tentacles and Nurgle icons. Both models have large poles attached to their backs – you have the option of modelling them with either a cloth banner, a metal icon of Nurgle or (and this is really something) an impaled, rotting cadaver with an expression of sheer agony.
They wield massive blighted weapons, with choices of scythes or a trident, and come with choices of covered or bare heads, equally grisly in detail. 3 Nurglings accompany them – 1 with a censer, 1 riding a tiny drone and 1 chewing gleefully on his own intestines… The Pusgoyle Blightlords come as 76 components, and are supplied with 2 Citadel 60mm Round bases. This kit can be optionally used to assemble a Lord of Afflictions.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Beast of Nurgle. He doesn’t carry weapons, rather smothering the enemy with his claws, tentacles and slobbering tongue. there are 3 options for his impressive belly, which attach to the single body assembly – 1 with a toothed maw, 1 with a few deep cuts and 1 with a large gaping wound showing a variety of internal organs. There are 2 sets of hands supplied, each featuring 1 hand reaching out with the other steadying the Beast – 1 set is webbed, and the other is clawed, with 2 similar sets of feet. 3 different faces are available, each more manic than the last – 1 featuring a single eye, 1 featuring an icon of Nurgle where the eye should be and 1 with a pair of eyes practically bursting out of the Beast’s skull. There are 2 crests of tentacles, and 2 tongues.
This kit comes as 48 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 60mm Round base. Beasts of Nurgle can be added to Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar armies.
