So nurgle is finally getting his due with his own book up next per Warhammer Community. Some sweet new models. The new great unclean ones all look very nice and on par in size it appears with the forgeworld GUO. The drone riding mortals also look very nice.

Just in time for Azyr Empires campaign for my group this spring!

Will you be embracing or facing the new rot at all in the mortal realms?

Super excited. I already have death guard in 40k. And some daemons too. I have really thought about doing a nurgle themed Army probably a mix of Mortals and demons and this might be the catalyst. Also I really enjoy painting nurgle models because I can be messy and the effect still looks good so it is good for someone like me who does not have the patience or the pure skill to do a lot of detail

Really excited about the new stuff. What are the odds those blight drone things will allow for both mortal and demon riders?

Well the blight drones already have demonic riders. This just gives them mortal riders as well IMO.

Completely forgot about those...at any rate, it's nice to see nurgle being made out into a full faction.

Its funny how Nurgle was my least favourite Chaos God, aesthetically (Behind Greek-Slaanesh and over BDSM-Slaanesh)... but that has changed after all this releases. It all started with Blightkings

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

I started a Primaris Marines army with the release of 40k 8th edition, but now I really need to finish painting it all, before this deluge of Nurgle washes over us!

Here's a thread about a new/updated faction, better bring up Sisters of Battle... uhh, Slaanesh.

On topic: I really love the new GUO, I already bought cheap Nurgle units in anticipation for this release over the last few months. Very cool that Blightkings can now be on drones.

New stuff looks amazing. However, the name "Sloppity Bilepiper" has to be the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

The new spells they teased are nice.

They specificially mentioned blight kings getting a points drop AND there's a spell that every 6 you roll to hit is an additional mortal wound caused. And with blight kings... well thats D6 mortal wounds it was hinted at.

Oh my. Thats just foul.

Well, Blightkings now have it IIRC a roll of 6+ to hit does d6 wounds. So this sounds like it would be a mortal wound, then d6 regular wounds since you rolled a 6+.

It would be one mortal + d6 wound rolls, thankfully. But I'm sure you know as well as I that blightkings need a small points increase, not a reduction.

Still super excited for the battletome and having tons of options! I'll certainly be frantically updating my nurgle army thread for a couple months.

Pffft, if a chaos army isn't top tier, then they are obviously doing something wrong. Every new chaos book has to make their faction at least as broken as a murderhost, if not as busted as the disciples.

Khorne was pretty good when it came out, minus a few battalions. Then with GHB2 they reduced the cost on thirsters and the bloodletters got the massive unit imbalance, and ham-fistedly nerfed battalions across the board wether they needed it or not. As for Tzeentch... I don't know wtf they were thinking when they priced some of that stuff out. GHB2 helped but not enough.

For blight kings a roll of 6 to hit = D6 hits. You still have to roll to wound with them all.

t would be one mortal + d6 wound rolls, thankfully. But I'm sure you know as well as I that blightkings need a small points increase, not a reduction.


Probably. But at this point they've already let loose the broken underpointed units run rampant, so I'm not going to complain that one of my prime armies is finally viable again because we have some underpointed units too.

At the time I was far more interested in 40K. But assuming I can go with a Nurgle daemon army under Rotbringers the I can use the daemons I have for both games.

40K:
Death Guard - 6450 points.

I'm betting Horty will have rules in Codex Daemons and get a rebox on his own.

I am VERY excited the more previews I see. I was really hoping for Pestigor though but GW Facebook replied to me asking about it with their typical marketing BS response (e.g. "We haven't heard anything, stay tuned for more info!"), which means no Pestigors, so either Maggotkin isn't meant to have a chaff troop like Bloodreavers or Acolytes (which, as someone who likes more elite armies I'd have no problem with this), or Plaguebearers are meant to be that, or they'll just be lazy and include taking Marauders/Chaos Warriors in the army list.

Or they could announce another unit we haven't seen yet. I'm honestly glad we haven't seen Khorngors, Slaangors, or Pestigors yet as it keep the Tzeentch-aligned army feeling a little more unique. I focuses on Tzeentch's aspect of change (though I would just as soon see the aspect of mutation shown through armored humans with extra heads, tentacles, claws, etc.). To be clear, I hope and assume the other three god-specific Gors will come at a later date (maybe with a Brayherds book), but I like how thus far, each god's mortal army feels unique. Giving everyone some form of Gor would lessen that uniqueness.
