“Pain is an illusion of the senses, fear an illusion of the mind, beyond these only death waits as silent judge o’er all.” – Mortarion
The embodiment of decay and death who has ruled the battlefield for ten thousand years. With his intimidating presence and a retinue of chittering Daemon mites, droning flies, and noxious plague vapors, Mortarion instills crawling dread in his enemies. His immense, creaking wings beat with a thudding rhythm, filling the air with the stench of death and leaving opponents gasping for breath as they succumb to the myriad plagues that surround him.
This multi-part plastic kit offers the components necessary to assemble this “miniature”. This model stands tall, overshadowing even the mighty Death Guard and leaving Bloodthirsters gazing up in awe.
Adorned in the rusted and rotting Barbaran Plate, Mortarion’s baroque power armor is covered in skulls, spikes, and symbols of Nurgle. Tattered robes, chains, and a decaying cowl hang from his armor, partially concealing the network of pipes that feed his respirator. It is safe to assume that the air Mortarion breathes is anything but fresh and clean, instead tainted with vile spores and disease.
Equipped with two abhorrent weapons, Mortarion is a fearsome adversary. His massive scythe, Silence, boasts a rusted yet razor-sharp blade adorned with brutal chain-teeth, stained with the blood of worlds. It is said to have the power to cleave even a Reaver Titan into pieces.
Additionally, he carries The Lantern, an ancient energy pistol. You have the option to pose Mortarion with the weapons lowered by his side for a more measured stance or in a more aggressive pose.
One cannot overlook Mortarion’s decaying wings, which represent the horror and decay of Nurgle’s hordes. Pockmarks, holes, and tears mar their surface, a testament to their vile nature. Alongside Mortarion, this kit includes additional features.
Two Nurgling Drones, bearing phosphex bombs, dangle from the chains on Mortarion’s armor, while three more Nurglings adorn the base. One carries a Chaos icon, another swings a censer, and the third transports a tank of unspeakably horrid substances. Even the rocks on the base are corrupted by the foul presence of the Daemon Primarch.
