The Scythes of Nurgle
Field Mortarion, the Daemon Primarch of Nurgle and terrifying spreader of foul disease, and his personal bodyguard – the Deathshroud – with this bundle. You’ll receive 2 sets of Deathshroud Bodyguard and Mortarion – 7 models in total:
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a set of 6 Deathshroud Bodyguard. Impressively large and dense, covered in rot, decay, tentacles and horror, these models exemplify the corrupting gift that Nurgle imparts. Each is armed with a manreaper – a large scythe, pitted and pockmarked with rust and disease, it stands even taller than the Deathshround who brandish it – and a plaguespurter gauntlet, used to squirt unpleasant maladies at the unfortunate. Each of the three is bedecked with Nurgle symbolism, found in the rust, boils and chips in their armour, through which vile tentacled and bloated flesh poke, barely covered by ragged cloaks. there are 14 variant heads included, a mix of helmeted and bare, and 2 extra plaguespurter gauntlets – this is for an optional unit leader, who has the option of wielding two of these.
The Deathshroud Bodyguard come as 102 components, and are supplied with 6 Citadel 40mm Round bases.
Mortarion, Daemon Primarch of Nurgle
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Mortarion, Daemon Primarch of Nurgle. This is a towering model – the word ‘miniature’ barely does it justice, as he looms over the rest of the Death Guard and gives even Bloodthirsters something to look up to! He is clad in baroque power armour known as the Barbaran Plate – this is covered in rust and rot, with skulls, spikes and Nurgle symbolism on each of the chunky components. Mouldering robes, chains and a rotten cowl hang from this armour, partially covering the system of pipes that feed his breathing apparatus – it is safe to assume that this ventilator isn’t delivering fresh and clean air to Mortarion, rather vile spores and disease. He is armed with 2 foul weapons: a massive scythe named Silence, a rusting yet razor-sharp blade featuring brutal chain-teeth, stained with the blood of worlds and capable even of hacking a Reaver Titan to pieces; and The Lantern, an ancient energy pistol. There are two modelling options for these weapons – one option features the weapons down by Mortarion’s side, the other features a much more aggressive pose.
Mortarion features huge, decaying wings – these are modelled with pockmarks, holes and tears, representing the horror and decay of Nurgle’s hordes. Speaking of Nurgle’s hordes, there are plenty of extras with this kit – 2 Nurgling Drones carrying phosphex bombs hang from the chains on Mortarion’s armour, with a further 3 on the base: 1 carries a Chaos icon, one waves a censer and one carries a tank of unmentionably horrid substances. The base itself is detailed with rocks which themselves are being corrupted by the foul presence of the Daemon Primarch.
Mortarion comes as 78 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 100mm Round base.
