Checkout just how easy it is to build all versions of the Great Unclean one, and how he stacks up size wise to the other Greater Daemons of Chaos.
The new Great Unclean One kit is finally here from Games Workshop. This kit retails for $140 and comes with the components necessary to assemble a Great Unclean One or the newest addition to the Nugle family, Rotigus. Our very own Rob Baer has the new kit on his paint bench so let’s take a closer look at this diseased-ridden giant!
For our complete review, be sure to scroll down and press play on the full video below.
This multi-part kit comes with 2 and a half sprues that will allow you to assemble and customize a Great Unclean One or Rotigus. There are 59 components in total and a giant 130mm base. You are going to get multiple weapon options and 2 different head variants for the GUO.. Rotigus will have 2 weapon options and a fanged maw piece for his abdomen. The GUO will weigh in at around 320-325 depending on what you kit him with. Rotigus will weigh in at 330 and does not have as many abilities as the GUO.
This kit will be easy to assemble as the slices were well planned out and they do provide a great amount of hobby potential. Once the torso has been assembled, the weapon, head, and stomach options will socket into the hand areas and the torso. You could, in theory, create a superstructure of magnets inside the model to allow you to swap components and details on the fly. The model is hollow and easy to hobby on. For the head piece, a 3/8in. magnet is suggested.

Great Unclean One: $140
The Great Unclean Ones are Nurgle’s mightiest daemons. Towering over their enemies, these living hillocks of rotting flesh lumber across the battlefield swinging their rusted weapons, vomiting streams of filth and unleashing diseased magics upon the foe. Great Unclean Ones are terrifying when roused to wrath, wading through enemy ranks, crushing foes beneath their bulk and pulping survivors with their enormous swords and flails. Some toll rusted summoning bells to draw forth fresh daemons, while others unleash terrible outbreaks of magical plague.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Great Unclean One. This is a truly vile model (in the most positive sense of the word!) – it celebrates its corpulence, with rotten, torn flesh slipping aside on its enormous gut to reveal winding intestines within. 2 different heads are available – one with symmetrical antlers and a foul grin, and one cyclopæan, featuring a hideous daemon tongue which ends in a sinister head – itself featuring a sinister daemon tongue! It can be armed with a massive bilesword or doomsday bell in the right hand, and a large bileblade or plague flail (a remarkable object which is essentially 3 skulls attached to lengths of heavy chain) in its left hand. 6 Nurglings are included, clutching items such as censers, or just hanging about – these can be added to the kit in any way that you see fit.
This model comes as 59 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 130mm Round base. The Great Unclean One can be added to both Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar armies, and the kit can optionally be used to assemble the special character Rotigus.
There is one amongst Nurgle’s greater daemons who journeys further than any other. Where he goes, repugnant life spreads about him in waves. He is Rotigus, the Generous One, and he enjoys his work. Flora and fauna bloat and twist with grotesque fecundity in his presence – his gifts are such that he feels no need to carry weapons, instead bearing a gnarlrod, which constantly rots and regenerates from a seed to bring forth ever-more foul diseases. He manifests Nurgle’s Deluge – a rotten, diseased storm that eternally hovers over his mountainous form, a vile downpour that spreads the blessing of Nurgle to every far corner of the battlefield.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble Rotigus, a Great Unclean One. Sharing many aspects of his appearance with the standard Great Unclean One, he is a mountain of blubbery, rotten flesh – his girthsome stomach is torn open to reveal a selection of teeth both sharp and broken, surrounded by boils and pox. His head is partially covered with a ripped shroud, which does very little to conceal his distended jaw (and the countless maggots pouring forth from within.) His diseased right hand holds aloft his gnarlrod, covered in trophies and icons, while his tentacle (and fang!)-covered left hand is posed with an open palm, flinging magic at his enemies. 6 Nurglings are included, clutching items such as censers, or just hanging about – these can be added to the kit in any way that you see fit.
This model comes as 59 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 130mm Round base. Rotigus can be added to both Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar armies, and the kit can optionally be used to assemble a Great Unclean One.
