    The new DG units look way, way too cartoonish. The Nurglings, Plague Walkers, GUCO and nearly every other model looks more at home in a cartoonish land than in Warhammer 40,000.

    I don't know if it's just me, but the older sculpts look so much better. If GW had crossed 1st/2nd/3rd editions and injected some FW into them I could get behind that, but they didn't.

    Where are the respirators? They used to be the mainstay of the Plague Marines back in the day. There are less pustules, organs and bits that look rotten on the Plague Marines now.

    And if anyone wants to argue with me about the new Death Guard and Nurgle units being the Cartoon army of Warhammer 40,000 I will refer you to the 'Sloppity Bilepiper' and the equally dreadful (not in a good way) 'Beast of Nurgle' and the Ultra Silly looking Typhus. The Deathguard Champion has a Nurgling with his helmet on his base.

    The last holdout is the Nurgle Daemon Prince. They threw way too much flashy bits and nurglings on them to make them any bit as disgusting as the old Death Guard Units. I can't take them seriously at all. I know they are supposed to be 'fun loving' but come one guys.

    Im really sorry but you don't seem to appreciate Death Guard as they are… you seem to know very little about nurgle and are mostly drawn to nostalgia from older model looks. That's just not what nurgle is anymore and as a commentator on the subject you should be objective about it and read a few books about the death guard.

    I laughed as you extolled the virtues of subtlety as I remembered the video of your dreadnaught army! No disrespect – totally get what you're saying. I think we all love the subtle realism mixed with the insanely overblown that is GW at the end of the day though.

    I like it. But I also like the stuff they've already done. I disagree with your comment that they've listened to feedback and made things more subtle for these ones, because it seems more likely to me that they were sculpted at the same time as the rest of the range and held back for collectable series of models.

    my nurglings collection just keeps growing and i love it.

  • Reply Foul Mood Central July 29, 2019 at 7:02 am

    Now this is the kind of model i'd buy instantly if GW had the sense of just putting these on their store and not in some weird asian market gimmick. sigh.

    I'd rather have someone other than Death Guard.

    The Head without Helmet is extremly nice.
    I got a mate who collects DG and I'll force him to use this head for some HQ conversion šŸ˜€

    I want him in my killteam. He reminds me of the old deathguard models which I much prefer.

    Kirioth logic, if he cant handle the truth he blocks you from Twitter……how sad, dont be fooled people this guy is not what he seems.

  • Reply Carsten Rasmussen July 29, 2019 at 7:02 am

    Would definately go without helmet. Because with a helmet he looks like a retarded but happy marine smiling a the rotfly booping his nose šŸ˜Š

    I think this model is the tits. Awesome.

  • Reply NurgleIsLove July 29, 2019 at 7:02 am

    Also….if you think your current models are time consuming to paint to excellence….stay away from Deathguard. I find they take a bit more time due to the depths and detail levels. But, worth it.

  • Reply NurgleIsLove July 29, 2019 at 7:02 am

    Yeah Iā€™m getting two. Love the head, the pose, the nurglets. Especially the head…..wow.

  • Reply ubiquitous panda July 29, 2019 at 7:02 am

    Many of the death guard models looked to important table top wise. Every model had so much detail I couldn't tell they were just normal marines. I like the way they're going with the heroes

    Nurgle has had way too much representation, Iā€™d rather see some other Chaos group get some love.

    It looks good. Really like the 3d skull kneecap. Ditto the skull shoulder pad. Still think the nurglings are a bit much though.

    I guess the monopose debate is over. Everybody loves monopose.

    the new heroes season is nice but not really necessary. we have loads of deathguard. im hoping season 4 will be thousand sons so we will have a HQ that isnt the "chapter master", from a box of three or requires converting from a model from codex chaos marines in an age where most occurrances of that have been purged. after we get some new TKsons models, i want ork heroes and i dare anyone to disagree with me on that being a great idea

    I see a future of much cleansing and punishment… but I NEED to paint these…

  • Reply TheOrkboyz July 29, 2019 at 7:02 am

    i must agree it does look faffing great

  • Reply savagepatty July 29, 2019 at 7:02 am

    I like the bear head better than the helmet version, it's very rotted and screams decay to me.
    The one with the helmet looks abit like a random plague marines.

    I believe GW realised they went too far with over-designing their models around the time just after 8th edition 40K dropped. The death guard were the last army to be overly detailed for the sake of it (though I maybe wrong). between Aos 1st edition and 40K 8th edition a lot of models were designed with a lot of intricate do-dads all over the models making painting them a chore for everyone save for the most enthusiastic of painters.

    Xeno Hero's when?

  • Reply Slender Man July 29, 2019 at 7:02 am

    If the entire range looked like this I would actually like the new DG

  • Reply Meta_Melcan July 29, 2019 at 7:02 am

    seeing how its Death Guard I'm sure they ment to say Space Marine Villians

    I left the hobby just after the return of Guilliman, and they started releasing Death Guard. That was two years ago, and they're still making more.

    Can we get something different, like the new Obliterators and Havoks and stuff? New multi-part Cultists would be nice, maybe a new Warsmith for the Iron Warriors?
