Warhammer Forge Newsletter #5

Hi there,
We have two new releases to announce this week for Chaos players: Tamurkhan the Maggot Lord himself, mounted upon the horrific Toad Dragon Bubebolos, and the nefarious Sorcerer Sayl the Faithless.

Tamurkhan the Maggot Lord on Bubebolos the Toad Dragon

TamurkhanThe fell legend of Tamurkhan has been whispered for many centuries amongst the tribes of the Chaos Wastes. Some tales speak of him as a scion of the Great Kurgan, one of four sons each cast to the four winds to conquer and enslave. Others claim that he was once no more than vermin – a corpse-canker grown fat and clever on the spoils of the battlefield, swelled and transformed by the light of the Ruinous Powers.

Whatever the truth, the Maggot Lord sits at the head of a great horde of decaying and bloated monstrosities, his mortal form cloaked in the flesh of an Ogre Tyrant, leading his warriors south to seek the fulfilment of an ancient prophecy.

Perhaps the most fell creature under his command is the mighty Toad Dragon Bubebolos, a huge, reeking, primeval horror and greatest of all its bloated kind. Blessedly few in number, the Toad Dragons are lumbering horrors from a forgotten age whose flesh festers with unwholesome rot and whose black blood is clotted with maggots and carrion worms.

Tamurkhan the Maggot Lord on Bubebolos the Toad Dragon is the largest model Warhammer Forge has so far released. This truly enormous full resin kit, sculpted by Mark Bedford, is packed with revolting detail and makes a perfect centrepiece for any Warriors of Chaos army. This immense kit is available to pre-order now for despatch in the week commencing 26th April, and writer Alan Bligh has supplied these experimental rules to allow you to field this powerful warlord and his horrific mount. Full background and details of Tamurkhan’s Chaos host will be published in Tamurkhan: The Throne of Chaos, which will be released later this year.

Sayl the Faithless and Nightmaw

His name synonymous with treachery and betrayal amongst the warriors of the Ruinous Powers, Sayl the Faithless is an infamous arch-sorcerer. Too proud and too paranoid to swear fealty to any single god amongst the Chaos pantheon, he has pursued pacts and bargains with innumerable petty godlings and daemons, betraying each in turn.

Sayl is pre-eminent among the Dolgan tribe, and his rise to ascendancy began with his allegiance to Schalkain the Vile, as one of his seven seer-apprentices. Sayl’s honeyed lies turned each acolyte against the others, and fanned the flames of suspicion into murderous strife. Eventually Schalkain was manipulated into conducting a dark rite involving Sayl and three fellow ‘loyal’ apprentices which resulted in his horrific death at the hands of a daemon beholden only to Sayl, while the three surviving acolytes were twisted into a terrible beast known as Nightmaw. Hated and feared, Sayl the Faithless and Nightmaw now march alongside Tamurkhan the Maggot Lord.

This full resin set, sculpted by Mark Bedford and Dan Cockersell, contains two incredibly detailed models that are available to pre-order now for despatch in the week commencing 29th April. Experimental rules taken from the forthcoming Warhammer Forge expansion book Tamurkhan: The Throne of Chaos are now available to download courtesy of Forge World writer Alan Bligh.
