Games Workshop is looking to be all-inclusive with this week’s set of releases. There’s new Nurgle releases for 40k. There’s a bunch of new box sets for Age of Sigmar, as well as a campaign system. There’s even a pair of Hobbit releases. Let’s take a look.

A quick and easy way to get started with a Death Guard collection, this bundle gives you everything you need to field a Patrol Detachment, as outlined in the Warhammer 40,000 book. When using this Detachment, the nearby presence of Typhus enhances the abilities of the Poxwalkers, making them far more resilient and likely to overwhelm your opponents on the gaming table. You’ll receive:

– Typhus, Herald of Nurgle, wielding a master-crafted manreaper;
– a 5-man set of Blightlord Terminators, armed with combi-bolters, baleswords and bubotic axes, with plasma, flamer and melta combi-bolters available to the Champion;
– 3 sets of 6 Easy To Build Poxwalkers, armed with hammers, chains, planks of wood and metal pipes with nails in, made more powerful by Typhus’ presence.

A revolting stench wafts around the Foul Blightspawn, his corruption clotting the air itself. Breath rattles through pus-slick tubes as he cranks the rusted handle of his malignant churn, bellows wheezing and plague slop roiling in the incubatum upon his back. Some foes stare in bewilderment at this strange performance. Some direct their fire at the Blightspawn, shots rebounding from his armour ot thumping harmlessly through rotten flesh in sprays of effluence. The wise, however, flee for their lives.

Blightlord Terminators are relentless and unstoppable, elite Death Guard warriors forever bound to Cataphractii armour. They stalk forward with guns blazing, mercilessly mowing down rank after rank of enemy. Combi-weapons, plague spewers and blight launchers add to the fusilade, reducing infantry and vehicles to slop.

Typhus, Lord of Mortarion’s First Plague Company and Host of the Destroyer Hive, is the most feared of all Plague Fleet commanders. From his ancient ship, the Terminus Est, Typhus spreads contagion and misery across the galaxy. That Typhus has been truly blessed by Nurgle is indisputable. For ten thousand years he has been a blight on Imperial worlds; in the wake of Typhus’ fleet a virulent plague spreads, creating plague zombies whose bites carry the disease to new victims. Billions have died and been returned to undeath, as the proliferating energies of Chaos distort and mutate this disease to ever-more terrifying vectors.

This box contains everything you need to run a multiplayer campaign of Warhammer Age of Sigmar in the war-torn lands of the Flamescar Plateau. Whether you want to play Skirmish games, or massive, epic battles with thousands of points, this set makes it easy to organise, set up and play. It includes a large map of the Flamescar Plateau, divided into 23 regions for your campaign players to fight over – there are 256 map markers in the box, which are reusable stickers that can be peeled off and attached elsewhere as needed. Emphasis has been placed on speed when designing this box – we want your admin to be as minimal and fast as possible, so you can get on with actually playing through your campaign!
