Dark Imperium - Plague Marines - First Thoughts

I have assembled the Plague Marines (still in the raw plastic so no need to add pictures, there are lots on the web).

My initial thoughts so far.

The sculpts are really good and the level of detail is equally excellent but the question I have been asking myself is:

Are they better than the Dark Vengeance Chaos Marines box set?

My thoughts are that they are the same, the Marines are equally good sculpts with great detail. The Lord of Contagion, Malignant Plaguecaster and the Noxious Blighbringer are all very pretty awesome models, same goes for the Foetid Bloat Drone.

I am still in the camp of these are well worth the cash and will be great to paint when I manage to get some time, but the purchase seems to be 'shiney syndrome' more than anything else.

Not complaining though.

I am going to build the Primaris Marines next.

  1. I agree with you on the 'shiney syndrome' effect but for Nurgle fans like myself the pull is a little bit more. In fact, if I had the budget I would've gotten myself a set by now. The Nurgle army looks fantastic from the outside looking in.
