Ok well it was great to meet you then! You referencing the insane game of blightkings, makes me think I can put a face with the avatar! I’m like a puppy dog at these events. So excuse me if you tried to make conversation and I was distracted. If I had realized it was you I would have definitely remembered!

Good points on the list there. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t distracted with a KO side project. I haven’t even got a chance to try this list out! It’s been all commissions, KO. But it’s nice to have a fully painted competetive army to just pack up and go so I’m sure once the current quarantine measures are eased I will hit some more events later this year. Looking at some regional GTs (the forge, grudgehammer, da boys, summer slaughter??) ATC then NOVA.

I intentionally didn't say anything, to be completely honest I was worn the hell out anyways and wasn't in a position to really talk so I figured I'd rather save an 'actual' meeting for another tourney.

I have been kind of distracted with my Kharadron overlords project lately. But Nurgle got QUITE the boost with this GHB. 140 point blightkings is just absurd. With them being 25ppm in a max unit of 20. Here is a template I have been using as my baseline:

Allegiance: Nurgle
- Host of Chaos: Blessed Sons

Leaders
Lord of Blights (140)
- Artefact: Blotshell Bileplate

Gutrot Spume (140)

Great Unclean One (320)
- General
- Bile Blade & Doomsday Bell
- Artefact: The Witherstave
- Lore of Virulence: Glorious Afflictions

Battleline
20 x Putrid Blightkings (500)
10 x Putrid Blightkings (280)
5 x Putrid Blightkings (140)
5 x Putrid Blightkings (140)

Battalions
Blight Cyst (140)

Total: 1800 / 2000
Extra Command Points: 1
Allies: 0 / 400
Wounds: 190

With 200 points to spare you can go in a variety of ways. A Lord of Afflictions might not be a terrible idea. Give him the witherstave or the blotshell bileplate to be honest. Either would be awesome on him and give RR1s to the big unit. Could go with a harbinger, although with kings being as cheap as they are.. why spend the points? He sucks up command points for sure! Could gov with festus on a balewind. His native spell and gift of contagion could make for a nasty synergy with blight cyst.

With stage one of the cycle, those 20 kings are moving 16"+2d6+1 charging. They are at -1 to hit in melee and -2 to shoot.

Blightkings have been carrying the allegiance for some time. It is everything else that needs a buff, not them. Once again flabbergasted by GW's 'balancing' but hey that comes with the territory. Nurgle listbuilding advice is just down to what characters to take since the troops proper will just be filled with blight cyst blightkings and maybe some marauders on the side.

In other news, the Warhammer sky has NOT fallen by making glottkin sub 400 and able to be allies. Report coming in from all over the world this should have happened a LONG ASS FRICKIN' TIME AGO

Power creep left a lot of the Nurgle lineup behind a long time ago.
