It’s going to be interesting seeing how much of a place Nurgle takes in the story going forward for Age Of Sigmar. There is decidedly a focus towards the forces of Chaos and darkness in this new expansion to the game, and the new models are actually looking rather awesome…
Great Unclean One
Leading the way we’re going to see a new plastic model for the Great Unclean One. This Greater Daemon might look familiar, especially in one of his three guises, as he’s matched against some of the older artwork for this daemonic horde.
Much like as we’ve seen with the Bloodthirster there will be multiple options for your Great Unclean One allowing you to change up their weapons and abilities to suit the armies you are going up against.
This is possibly one of the models that I don’t quite like as much as the others. The bell just doesn’t seem as threatening as some of the other options.
This version of the model with the massive staff, however, is rather awesome. Oh, and it should be pointed out that this model does indeed tower over your other figures making for an imposing figure on the battlefield.
I think I also like the fact that this model offers up some interesting options when it comes to painting as well. You have the draped cloth over the face as a contrast plus the tendrils reaching out from its other grasping hand.
Heralds Of Nurgle
As well as the massive models we’re also seeing some smaller character choices for your army. For example, here we have the Sloppity Bilepipers.
These gibbering lunatics once again show off some of the inventive ways in which Games Workshop are trying to add character to the Nurgle force. I quite like his cobbled-together instrument made of the internal organs of some unfortunate foe.
You also have theSpoilpox Scrivener who has a very alien and Cthulhu look to him don’t you think?
You can find out more about these new characters and more over on the Warhammer Community website where they have been talking about the force in more detail.
Also, don’t forget to check out the trailer above too for some background to what’s happening in the Mortal Realms.
What do you think of these new Nurgle models?
