For ten thousand years Mortarion, Daemon Primarch of Nurgle and father of the Death Guard has crushed his enemies upon countless battle fields across the galaxy. He is surrounded by chittering Daemon mites, droning flies and noxious plague vapours. On the battlefield Mortarion swoops into battle on huge, creaking wings. The drowning beat of these foul pinions fills the enemy with skin crawling dread, as they waft the reek of death across their lines. To even stand in the presence of the Death Lord is lethal, as foes choke and collapse as they succumb to the myriad plagues that churn the air around him.
The Mortarion, Daemon Primarch of Nurgle multi-part plastic kit allows you to assemble Mortarion, Daemon Primarch of Nurgle. A towering model that looms over the rest of the Death Guard and gives even a Bloodthirster something to look up at! He is encased in baroque power armour that he has worn since the heresy known as the Barbaran Plate. This is covered in rust, corrosion and rot, with skulls, spikes and Nurgle symbolism on each of the chunky components. Mouldering robes, chains and a rotten cowl hang from this armour, partially covering the system of pipes that feed his breathing apparatus.
He carries into battle 2 foul weapons: a massive scythe named Silence, a rusting yet razor-sharp blade featuring brutal chain-teeth, stained with the blood of worlds and capable even of hacking a Warlord Titan to pieces; and The Lantern, an ancient energy pistol. There are two modelling options for these weapons – one option features the weapons down by Mortarion’s side, the other features a much more aggressive pose.
Mortarion features huge, decaying wings modelled with pockmarks, holes and tears, representing the horror and decay of Nurgle’s hordes. There are plenty of extras with this kit – 2 Nurgling Drones carrying phosphex bombs hang from the chains on Mortarion’s armour, with a further 3 on the base: 1 carries a Chaos icon, one waves a censer and one carries a tank of unmentionably horrid substances. The base itself is detailed with rocks which themselves are being corrupted by the foul presence of the Daemon Primarch.
Supplied unpainted and requires assembly with a Citadel 100mm Round base.
