We've just seen the breadth of the GW Nurgle release. I think this is on par with the Typhus coming from GW and seems a bit more aligned with the old sculpt. More menacing.

A bit better than their abaddon, but pretty much everything on it just looks too big and chunky, much like their other models.

While a bit better than their Abaddon, to me anyways, it still has this odd, warcraft II-esque chunkiness to it...

Yep. It looks like what Typhus would be if he'd been added to Heroes of the Storm by Blizzard.

So by "more menacing" you mean 'that cliche made up scythe pose that makes no sense'?

 

The old official one had almost the same pose but at least implied he was readied for movement. This guy is doing the stepping forwards cliche commander pose and just kind of holding his scythe in front of him in order to fend off wandering pugilists. New official plastic Typhus has the same leg forwards commander cliche but is at least doing something with his scythe that's fitting for that pose.

 

I think my main problem with new plastic Typhus is he looks like he's in a wizard pose not a warrior one. Which is only a problem because I'm used to the old one which kept confusing me every time I got reminded Typhus was a psyker.

 

Now all I want is a pox walker doing the one leg forwards commander pose with a stupid grin.

Not often a fan of these guys but that is above and beyond.

 

Will need to see the new GW Typhus in a high res before we have a winner though.

Funny you should say that, considering a lot of the recent model design language screams World of Warcraft to me, particularly with the new bright and tentically Nurgle marines. This seems to bridge nicely between the new GW and the old school FW approach of rust and broken hoses.

No. Helmet, details, general menacing Nurglishness.

This guy was not readied for movement, he was in a "Huh? What's that noise?" pose. And holds the scythe exactly the same.

Am I right in thinking that the render tends to be chunkier than the actual model?

That actually doesn't look bad at all tho I always get the feeling that the proportions of Wargame Exclusive models are a little bit off.

Disclaimer:

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.

 

So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

Yeah, the pose is nice in theory, but there's a fundamental wrongness throughout it. I can't imagine putting this on the table next to proper Nurgle models and people not immediately noticing that it's from a completely different place.

He was stepping back in a way that implies he's ready to strike forwards.

 

Yes the scythe is held the same way except for a slightly different incline. While the rest of the body is posed completely different. That's a clear demonstration that the designer is awful at poses and or lazy.

 

Classic metal Typhus is in a pose that would actually be a okay 'come at me'/ready to strike pose if only he had an axe like a proper soldier. Third party Typhus is hold his scythe defensively in front of himself while he has a look around from the top of this rubble pile, showing that he has no confidence what so ever. Its the "as long as it looks cool who cares if it wouldn't impress anyone who knows how to fight" school of fantasy art poses.

*looks and the new DG models* too "chunky" ... what huh.png not "hiting" when he is clearly doing it with the end part of his pole weapon. Are we all looking at the same art?

"Felix wondered how Calgar might feel about the primach's unilateral altering of the Codex Astartes. The captain could not help but feel that, in his drive for victory and efficiency, Guilliman had been careless with the feelings of his existing sons. Increasingly, Guilliman looked to the Primaris Space Marines as his first solution. He made no attempt to hide the fact that the days of the older space marines were numbered."

I think it feels a little too busy to me. The old Typhus model was detailed but they were a bit more subtle. This looks like detail for the hell of it, without necessarily adding to the effect of the mini.

Would that 'know how to fight' school be the ones pointing out the rediculousness of trying to use a scythes as a weapon of war? ;-)

Cool look but not practical

The scythe is oversized like Warcraft weapons, especially the parts wrapped around the wooden haft, which are ludicrously thick.
