The Death Guard

The Death Guard fight their way through a virtually endless sea of fangs and talons as they make their way through the city streets. The presence of the Tyranid Tervigon proved troubling for the Death Lord’s kin, for with every pack of Termagants or Hormagaunts slain, another was spawned in rapid succession to take its place. Whilst Typhus raised Poxwalkers from the corpses of the slain imperial citizens to break the tide of the xenos swarm, Mortarion and a retinue of Blightlord Terminators faced off against the greater horrors of the Great Devourer.
