The Death Guard is a bloated, corrupted force sworn to the service of Grandfather Nurgle, the god of pestilence and decay. Their rotted bodies emit a stench of death and filth, their armor oozing with putrescent slime that corrodes metal and burns flesh. These gruesome disfigurements, however, only serve to enhance their deadly skills. Each of Mortarion's sons is a fearsome warrior who spreads death and disease wherever they go. To encounter the Death Guard on a space hulk is a nightmare come to life.
The Boarding Patrol: Death Guard set provides a relentlessly tough force of Death Guard infantry, perfectly suited to destroying enemies in games of Warhammer 40,000. The models are especially useful in the dense and deadly Boarding Action missions featured in the Arks of Omen series. The kit is cost-effective, offering a great way to expand your army and save money on the individual models.
Lead your invasion with the Lord of Virulence, clad in his warped Terminator armor, 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 armor 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.
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.
- 1x Lord of Virulence
- 3x Deathshroud Bodyguard
- 10x Plague Marines
This set is versatile and can be used to assemble a variety of units. For Boarding Action games, we recommend building a Lord of Virulence, two units of five Plague Marines, and three Deathshroud. The models come with their appropriate bases and require assembly, which we recommend doing with Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Color paints.
