A Lord of Blights is a brutish figure who creates and destroys in equal measure. Swollen with muscle, he lumbers into the midst of the foe swinging his bubotic hammer in thunderous arcs. Every impact shatters bone and ruptures organs, leaving his victims lying like bruised and rotten fruit on the ground. Yet this brutality has a purpose beyond simple murder – the Lord of Blights cultivates fine crops of death’s heads that he hands out to his warriors, enabling them to fling volleys of diseased projectiles. The Lord of Blights keeps the finest specimens for himself, hanging them from his gallowrack to hurl during battle.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Lord of Blights. Bloated and bursting, like most of the Rotbringers, his silhouette is noticeably dominated by the makeshift gallowrack nailed to his back, from which 3 ripening heads dangle. He wields an enormous, dented bubotic hammer along with a vermid shield – these are both covered in the appropriate Nurgle icons, with the shield being especially spiked and disease-ridden. His belt, overwhich his unpleasantly distended and torn belly flops, features a plague knife. The aforementioned belly is disgorging maggots at an alarming rate – it’s difficult to tell how the Lord of Blights feels about this, as his face is covered almost entirely by his helmet, through which one eye socket peers curiously.
The Lord of Blights comes as 7 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base.
Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly may be required.
