After some time going through the Chaos Space Marine codex, I keep going back to Death Guard as an army list that looks very enjoyable. So with that in mind here is a repost (with a few new pics added in) of Death Guard.

Pics of the Week happen every Tuesday where I share from my Warhammer pic library. I collect these all the time from all over, and sharing them is just fun.

Death Guard
The Death Guard, formerly known as the Dusk Raiders, were Legion XIV of the original twenty Space Marine Legions. Their Primarch is Mortarion, who relocated their base to his homeworld of Barbarus after his discovery by the Emperor. During the Horus Heresy, Mortarion and the majority of the Legion swore allegiance to Horus, becoming one of the nine Traitor Legions who betrayed the Emperor. After Barbarus was destroyed during the Heresy, they relocated to the Plague Planet inside the Eye of Terror.

Because of Barbarus's toxic environment, the Death Guard took great pride in their resistance to poisons, disease, and mortality in general. This fascination led them to worship the Chaos god Nurgle and in return he infests their armour with pestilence and disease, and elevated Mortarion to a Daemon Prince.

After Horus' defeat, Mortarion led his Death Guard in a campaign of destruction over a score of planets, until finally retreating into the Eye of Terror. Here he received Nurgle's ultimate reward and became a full-fledged Daemon Prince, ruling over one of Nurgle's greatest Plague Worlds in the Eye of Terror. Mortarion sends out fleets of Plague Ships into the Warp to carry their contagions throughout the galaxy.


  1. Nurgel will be the goto IMO too

    Prob smth like this
    3x Neurgling bases
    Sources on Bike lvl 3
    Big Unit spawns
    3x 10 man nurgel Marine Plas
    3x3 oblits
    And more nurgel Fun if points are left :D

    1. Nurgel oblits Ofc ;)

    2. You know when the new daemons codex comes out (if rumors are true, not long now either), its gonna nerf the tally to make it less compatible with DG and that is even if they decided to include Epi in it all together. It's GW after all. ;)

    3. You can't unlock plauge marines with a sorce

    4. They could be filling the elite slots but you need troops also then.

    5. Maybe demon dex will come Out
      Maybe it will buff demons more?
      Maybe Not... Then drop 1 Model and Take smth els!

      I'm just Saying we will prob See nurgel SPAM
      Ofc Lord on Bike with pf in there aswell

  2. I am loving the Horus Hersey Vol. 1 book. Really fine work by Forge World, the Death Guard got a lot of love.

  3. Terrifying images!


  4. I'm currently reading a book called The Death Guard that was reprinted in the early 90's and a lot of stuff in the book does show through into 40k- the Death Guard are a geneticly engineered fungas for one. There are more, but I'm waiting till I've finished before I post a blog about it

  5. The third from the bottom has always been my favourite, but I'm not really sure why...

    1. The bloated termy in the BG? I'm a sucker for the sumo, rotten termies! Typhus I think is still one of the best ever looking models in 40k. They have captured exactly how a Nurgle terminator should look in that model!

  6. Hehe I ordered a full Death Guard army a week ago + the Death Guard terminator upgrade kit from forgeworld.. But I must say that the UK-sites are among the slowest to send the ordered stuff.. -.-

  7. I've had the gift of Father Nurgle since the Chaos Codex released. I've had a Death Guard army for years now, but I've literally been sick. Kinda funny ;)
