So how big is the new Great Unclean One? Come take a look at some pictures from New Year’s Open Day that show off the size of the new model.

Games Workshop was happy to show off the new Great Unclean One minis during New Year’s Open Day this past weekend. Let’s take a look at some pictures that were spotted on La Voz De Horus of the new GUO’s. First, let’s start with him next to Forge World resin one (previously known as Lord Scabeiathrax) that was actually dropped in the comments on the same page.

So from the looks of the picture it seems the new Great Unclean One is about the same size, minus the hand in the air making it a tad bit taller.

Games Workshop also showed off a couple different builds of the new model, which were sculpted by Steve Buddle.

They showed off four different way to build the new GUO. But, from the looks of the different builds it seems there’s a lot of different combinations you can choose from. With what looks to be two different stomachs, three different heads, three different right hand options, and three different left hand options, it seems like you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.

But is the price tag of $140 worth the value? Let’s take a look at the sprues.

Great Unclean One Sprues

The new kit comes with two full size sprues and a half a sprue. Similar kits like the Bloodthirster and Fateweaver have two full size sprues each and come in at $115 each. However, there’s three sprues for the Bloodthirster and the only way to get the third sprue is by buying Skarbrand at $130, which is also a two sprue kit. The only difference between Skarbrand and the Bloodthirster is the one single sprue needed to make the Skarbrand model, the second sprue in the kit can be found in the Bloodthirster box.

This brings us back to our original question, is the half sprue worth the extra $25 compared to similar sized models? We’ll leave that one up to you to decide!

What do you think about the new Great Unclean One? Are you going to be picking one up for yourself? Do you think it’s priced appropriately?
