Well, I probably should have included this guy in last week’s blog post about my new Death Guard Plague Marines, but I forgot, so here he is.
The Lord of Contagion figure is certainly one of the centerpiece models from the new Warhammer 40,000: Dark Imperium box set. In fact, you could easily argue that Chaos got the best figures in this set — all the Imperium got were larger-than-averaged Space Marines. Ha!
Anyway, I’ve been looking for a decent Nurgle-themed Chaos lord for quite some time. I don’t have the critical mass of bits required to kitbash something suitably gruesome, so I was glad when this guy arrived in the new box set.
In my games, he will be known as Brasque Krakmarrow, Lord of Contagion, variously styled as the Grave Wurm of Endymion-Delta and the Gift-Giver of Vortulai Hive. He has already taken to the battlefield during the brutal battle for Teknolog Pass last month on Caluphel. Who can say how many souls he will reap before Grandfather Nurgle’s appetite is sated?
