I think they changed some of his fluff, since Nagash is mentioned in the Skaven codex, and seems quite different. It's as in depth as what you're getting into, but they portrayed him almost like the "father" of the undead races.

I kind of like the model. Huge improvement over the original model but kept some of the aspects of the original. 1000 points though I was expecting him to be more. Sort of how sauron was for the lotr game.

He is the father of the undead races. He was the one to raise the Tomb Kings, before they were simply Pharaohs. When they forces Nagash out of the desert, he found the Sylvannian Counts of the Empire, and created the Vampire Counts. Remember, Sylvannia is an Empire province. It still is, and the Emperor considers it part of the Empire.

He enslaved the Vampire Counts, and forced them to fight for him, but when he was banished, they gained their freedom.

This is why all the Undead races hate Nagash. It's also why there used to be an Undead Army, and it was split into two books when they wrote Nagash out of the game.

I want to see the model closer up. A lot of the GW paint jobs are horrendous and ruin some of the models.

Nagash's keep, Nagashizzar, is sitting on a giant repository of warpstone. When he went to cast a dread spell to rule the world, the Council of Thirteen sent in a team with the Fellblade and gave it to King Alcadizaar, who was being held prisoner by Nagash. Alcadizaar used it to slay Nagash, but he went mad in the process and died out in the wilds. This spell, ironically, caused the ancient kings of Khemri to wake up, leading to the Tomb Kings.

Nagash returned eventually, and later slain once again by Sigmar. I'm unsure of how he has returned this time around, though some people are saying it was through some ritual involving an elven princess. Might be in one of the novels.

When they forces Nagash out of the desert, he found the Sylvannian Counts of the Empire, and created the Vampire Counts.


Not quite. Queen Neferata of Lamia found one of Nagash's books and made an elixir of immortality using his blood. She became the first vampire, and made six lieutenants. They were driven out of Khemri and into the arms of Nagash, though even then he was betrayed; they fled when Alcadizaar's forced proved too much for Nagash, and out of spite all vampires were cursed to die from sunlight.

Nagash can control any undead, this is true, but those of particularly strong will can resist him; this includes a lot of the Tomb King leaders and a fair number of vampires. Both have a right to hate him and most do not serve him willingly, and only the truly insane would want him back at full power.

Stupid retcons, i guess I got some reading to catch up on because i'm out of date.

Yeah Slim, that sounds right. I haven't read most of these books in 10 years, they are simply too expensive to buy all of them.

I don't know slim 105.00 for 1000 points of an army is making me feel like its 2004 again. Way over priced for a single model, but on par with other large kits.

Yeah but look at the book. $85, $165 for the limited edition. That is straight-up ridiculous.
