The Second Day of Nurgle: Great Unclean One

Did you spot our special reveal yesterday? If you didn’t get a chance to watch Warhammer Community’s very special Christmas carol, you may have missed some exciting news.

Next year, the forces of Nurgle will rise in the Mortal Realms, and the 41st Millennium, with a virulent host of new models, a new codex for the Chaos Daemons and 2018’s first battletome for Warhammer Age of Sigmar – Maggotkin of Nurgle.

We’ll be looking at some of the awesome new miniatures over the next 7 days, as well as giving away some free wallpapers (we are good to you!). Naturally, we’re starting with Nurgle’s mightiest Daemons – the Great Unclean Ones:

Very soon, the Great Unclean One will be reborn, combining the classic aesthetic you love with the very latest miniatures design technology. This gargantuan beast now lives up to its size in the lore of Warhammer, a living mountain of rotting flesh that’ll tower above the rest of your collection.

Of course, if the Great Unclean one looks familiar, there’s good reason for it – while the design might be modern, it hearkens back to some classic art from Warhammer’s history – most notably, Wayne England’s iconic depiction of Nurgle’s favourite servants:

Of course, good things come in threes, and you’ll be able to use this kit to build one of three variant Great Unclean Ones, each carrying a different set of equipment. The third is a new special character known as Rotigus:

Rotigus is worshipped in the far corners of the Mortal Realms and the 41st Millennium as a generous, life-giving deity of prosperity and fecundity. While Rotigus certainly is generous (as all servants of Nurgle are!), the gifts he gives are foul in nature, and any who pray for his patronage soon see the error of their ways…

You’ll find datasheets and warscrolls for these guys in Codex: Chaos Daemons and Battletome: Maggotkin of Nurgle, updated to properly reflect the expanded weapon options (not to mention bulk!) now available in the kit.

That’s not all – here’s a free wallpaper for you to download and celebrate your love of Nurgle:

There are more gifts on the way, so tune in tomorrow for another look at a new Nurgle kit…
