That scythe is awesome... if the beast he is on leans forward enough for him to be able to hit anyone with it, he will tumble off and then get crushed by yhe beasty he was previously riding.

Ah that's why then.

Also, note you don't have to run them 5 wide. That's just so you can get rank bonus. Not being Monstrous Infantry means however that they don't overly benefit from Monstrous Support or rank bonus. At 40ppm, combined with M4, and without monstrous infantry special rules, it's a reasonable trade off, but cannot be stacked with characters (pretty much no other character is infantry with a 40mm base).

You can run either 6 wide (assuming you take Spume for a 240mm wide unit), or you can run 3x2 with a 120mm wide unit, and have an attack routine that looks something like 9 WS6 S6 attacks+5-8 WS8 S7 attacks. If you don't take Spume, it's 12 WS6 S6 attacks, and only costs 240pts.

Compare that to a unit of Chosen (125mm wide), and you've got 15 WS6 S6 attacks. However, chosen are cheaper, (20pts?), so you get a rank bonus of +3 for the same price, if my rudimentary maths are correct - but that's not including command, nor is it including Marks of Chaos which are only going to add to a units cost.

They're not exactly a fast flanking unit like a unit of Chaos Ogres (and being fair, spending points on a Standard + Banner of Swiftness isn't really that much difference), nor are they Skullcrushers, Minotaurs, Bloodletters or Chaos Knights.

>>I'm just gonna run them 5x2 with full command. Works out at 430, getting 21 attacks strength dependant on weapon choice. Fuk it, I'll give them a shot. Nice minis, and that my main reason for buying/using them. Too many folk are quick to say that stuff shit before using them.(dinnae mean you). :)

I think there's a good Great Unclean One to be found in this miniature as well - simply don't attach the smaller brothers.

Never been a collector of anything Nurgle, just never been of interest to me - but, whoever sculpted this should be proud. GW have really made a jump with their Nurgle units (thinking 2nd/3rd Ed Plague marines...).

Would @Svartmetall have had anything to do with this model, I wonder?

Nope. The people in charge of hiring for the Studio absolutely screwed me over in my attempts to get them to hire me, and they made me redundant from Production in March; I am no longer anything to do with that company, and right now I refuse to give them another penny of my money - it's Ebay for me for the foreseeable future. My experience of working for GW was pretty much characterised by unprofessional behaviour, lies, incompetence, negligence, arrogance, bias and bullying at a managerial level every step of the way.

Am I yet another in the long, long line of bitter ex-GW employees? You're damn fucking right I am.

There are some great people working there, but as far as I'm concerned GW management can most accurately be summed up by a well-known phrase that rhymes with 'crunch of runts'.

Well, shit - I am incredibly sorry to hear about that, and and further apologise for both being in the dark about it and for resurfacing it. It's their loss - myself and everyone on this forum, any other forum for that matter, would agree.

Hey, no problem mate - it was a perfectly valid question. I just wish I could've given you a positive answer :(


(although if I'd sculpted it, it would've been a lot better)
