Bloated with corruption and sworn to Grandfather Nurgle’s service, the disgusting, rotted bodies of the Death Guard stink of decay, the joints of their armour dribbling putrescent slime that corrodes metal and burns flesh. These horrific disfigurements only enhance their skill as killers – each of Mortarion's sons is a fearsome warrior who brings death and infection wherever they tread. To discover any foe lurking within a space hulk is a worrying thought, but the Death Guard's presence is the stuff of nightmares.
Boarding Patrol: Death Guard provides a relentlessly tough force of Death Guard infantry, perfectly suited to gunning down and cutting up foes in games of Warhammer 40,000 – especially in the dense and deadly Boarding Action missions detailed in the Arks of Omen series – and will save you money compared to buying the kits individually.
Lead your invasion with the Lord of Virulence, clad in his warped Terminator armour, as he reduces whole corridors of enemies to a foul sludge with his twin plague spewer and plague claw. As he advances, he's guarded by three silent Deathshroud Bodyguard – brutal elites wearing Terminator armour and armed with sweeping scythes and vile plaguespurt gauntlets. In their wake follow 10 Plague Marines, toughened and festering warriors with an array of contaminated wargear suited to both melee and close firefights.
This set includes the following:
- 1x Lord of Virulence
- 3x Deathshroud Bodyguard
- 10x Plague Marines
This box can be used to assemble a variety of units – the recommended build for Boarding Action games is a Lord of Virulence, two units of five Plague Marines, and three Deathshroud.
All models are supplied with their appropriate bases. These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
Rules for playing Boarding Action games of Warhammer 40,000 can be found in the Arks of Omen: Abaddon supplement. Additional rules for Death Guard Boarding Patrols can be found in Arks of Omen: Vashtorr.
