Games Workshop continue down the path of Chaos with Age of Sigmar as their latest list of releases feeds both the hordes of Khorne and Nurgle. The big release is the Exalted Deathbringer which has garnered a lot of praise and a whole bunch of repackaged Nurgle models…
Blood For The Blood God
The Exalted Deathbringer is a murderous individual with some pretty nasty rules. He is, of course, a daemon in combat and even has rules for punishing you on the defensive with the Skullgouger. I think the model is great too and really captures this new vision of Khorne, giving all of the army this heavily daemonic feel.
Some of his rules include the chance to give him a Runemarked Shield (lose the fighting claw) which allows you to ignore wounds on a 2+ – pretty crazy. He is also a brutal commander, using blood and gore to cement his command. Khorne units can use his Bravery within 12″ and if you murder some models you can raise that to 24″.

Nurgle get a whole bunch of repackaged miniatures for the new era of Warhammer including the Blightkings and the Glottkin from The End Times. Gutrot Spume, Lord Of Plagues, Sorcerer, Festus Leechlord and a Lord have all been drafted in for service by the bloated God of decay…
The models have always been impressive for Nurgle so it’s good to see them getting a bit of love in the story even if we have no new models. It will be interesting to see how the other Chaos Gods get in on the action too down the line.
What will you be picking up this week?
