Of all the armies that seek to conquer the stars in the 41st Millennium, the Death Guard are truly the foulest and most corrupt. Made monstrous by their patron god Nurgle – lord of plagues and grandfather of disease – they are decay and entropy made manifest, living icons of hopelessness and despair.
This box set contains 3 plastic Plague Marines, which can be used as alternative models in any Plague marine squad, an exclusive 20-page booklet featuring an interview with designer Maxime Pastourel giving insight into the process behind the miniatures’ creation, along with an ‘Eavy Metal showcase, painting guide, and 3 art cards featuring concept art by John Blanche!
Blight Stalker – a trench warfare expert, resplendent in a sinister gasmask – he is armed with a bolter and blight grenade (featuring a skull), and is accompanied by a nurgling carrying a disease-coated stick – it’s probably best not to dwell on where that stick has been…
Dipteron – evoking the classic Death Guard motif of mutation and corruption, this model is covered in growths and tentacles, and wields a meltagun and blight grenade. He features extra meltagun nozzles on his back, showing his commitment to the long war.
Corpulux – bloated, diseased and in an advanced state of disrepair, his armour is bursting with decay, held together by patches of chain mail. He carries a plague knife and a blight bomb – again, this bomb is made out of an unfortunate victim’s head…
In the 20-page booklet included with the miniatures, you’ll find some incredibly interesting content – an interview with the designer, Maxime Pastourel, giving you an insight into the background of each miniature, its conception and the idea behind every little detail. There are a selection of concept sketches, helping you to understand the evolution of the models, along with some beautifully photographed examples painted by the ‘Eavy Metal team, with paint swatches showing you how to achieve a similar look.
As well as this, there are 3 art cards, featuring a Poxwalker, Plague Marine and Mortarion, rendered lovingly by John Blanche.
