Mortarion Returns Plus New Death Guard Codex For Warhammer 40,000

September 9, 2017 by brennon

Games Workshop has now made the Daemonic Primarch available for you to pre-order for Warhammer 40,000. Welcome, Mortarion who, while marmite as a model, is certainly looking as imposing as his statistics would signify.

The model stands head and wings above most other models and even dwarfs Roboute Guilliman who still rocks in as an impressive warrior on the tabletop. You can see the size difference in more detail here below…

The real question is whether or not you’re going to pick one up for your own force on the tabletop. He certainly has the ability to control the battlefield quite effectively with some of his zoning powers and the enemy will pay a heavy toll if they don’t find a way to destroy him.

Of course, there is also the new Codex for the Death Guard giving them more themes to draw on for their force. You can also pick up accessories like the Dice and the Data Cards too which no doubt will sell like hot cakes.

You can also expect to pick up the Limited Edition version of the Codex too if that is what appeals to you. While they are proper works of art and a lot of effort has gone into them I still don’t think I’d be able to stretch to them regardless of how much I liked an army.

In addition, talking about special releases, there is also The Plague Brethren set which comes with three special miniatures.

This set comes with these three models, artwork and concept designs about how they came to life and much more about the design process. You of course also get the rules to play games with them too.

Once again, while this isn’t going to be for everyone, this is a nice extra thing to throw into the mix for really big fans of the game world of Warhammer 40,000 that want to find out more about the process behind the models. The characters do actually look pretty ace too.

What do you think about the new Nurgle selection?
