Nurgle Pusgoyle Blightlords Fly High

The Rotbringers are getting some new Flying Cavalry with the Pusgoyle Blightlords!

Forget using a fly-swatter on these new Pusgoyle Blightlords, you’re going to need to bring out the big guns to deal with these new Nurgle units.

Pusgoyle Blightlords are the shock cavalry of the Rotbringers army, combining the speed of a unit of Plague Drones with the durability and martial prowess of the Putrid Blightkings. These are the elite of the Rotbringers, and they allow you to flank enemies, control space and dash onto objectives at the last minute, giving you a much wider tactical toolbox when using the Nurgle army!

Within the new Pusgoyle Blightlords kit you’re also going to have the option to construct a Lord of Affliction. Similar to the new Lord of Blights this is another leader you can add to your Nurgle Army. Now that we’ve gotten a look at the new Nurgle Great Unclean Ones and the new Heralds we’re getting a better picture of what to expect in the upcoming Maggotkin Battletome. And it’s looking pretty pus-filled and mean!

What do you think of these new Pusgoyle Blightlords? Anyone else considering a Rotbringer Army for AoS besides me?

  • BaronSnakPak

    I was wondering if I was seeing things in the Glottkin video when they show drawings of Blightlords riding on flies.

  • marxlives

    Pretty cool, looks like this year is the year of Nurgle.

    • Sonic tooth

      So was last year

      • EnTyme

        Not exactly. It started with Tzeentch getting Thousand Sons and Disciples of Tzeentch. Nurgle got Death Guard and the Blight War bundle later. Now, Nurgle’s getting his AoS battletome. Later this year, we’re supposedly getting some World Eaters models, then Emperor’s Children. Presumably, Slaanesh will get an AoS tome early next year.

        • Sonic tooth

          True, I’m only kidding around. I think it will be a long wait for slaanesh tho. Personally I’m waiting for elves

      • euansmith

        Once you’ve got Nurgle, it is difficult to shake him.

  • Fergie0044

    I can’t un-see that the legs of these guys are the exact same as the Maggoth lords legs.

  • Apocryphus

    Pus…goyle…ugh. GW, it’s great that you want a Disney level iron grip on your IP that you have to find every possible way to make everything you produce protected under copyright, but please think about these over the top naming conventions before subjecting your customers to them.

    Cool models though, seeing them proper I like them more than initial impressions from the preview video.

    • Kreoss4u

      How and why do the names inconvenience anybody? Seems like a silly complaint.

      • Apocryphus

        They don’t really, I just find them way too over the top. Plus, names like Sloppity Bilepiper are clumsy enough to read, much less say, I prefer quick and descriptive names over needlessly embellished pre-existing words. It’s just opinion in the end.

    • CloakingDonkey

      Eh I actually really like that they embraced the silly jolly side of Nurgle with these new releases. There’s enough edgelord names in both IPs as it is. It’s refreshing to see some names that don’t sound like a 12 year old’s first online handle.

      • Apocryphus

        Lol I love that description! My thing is I’d be happy with something like Drone Lords (which sounds like an atmospheric Black Metal band now that I think of it) or something along that ilk. It gets tedious saying these long and oft times awkward names.

        • euansmith

          I guess that, in truth, people won’t be calling things by their official names on the table top except in Twitch videos. I like the Drone Lords name.

  • Drew

    First Sloppity Bilepiper and now Pusgoyle Blightlords.

    Could have just been “the Bilepiper” and “Blightlords” and would have been fine, but nope, we needed that “extra Nurgle-y touch” to take it over the top to total absurdity…

    • Apocryphus

      Horticulus Slimux!

    • dave long island

      They take their Nurgle-names to 11…. lol

  • Only 2 per box is a bit disappointing, I guess I’ll get one kit for the character, but really I don’t think this unit is gonna add much to the mortal nurgle lineup. Would’ve been nice to get a lighter infantry unit instead

    • euansmith

      Lighter Infantry? Something like “Emetic Colon Vacuators”?

      • I think they have a standing trademark on “pestigor” but I’d compromise on “kroopish fevergors”

        • Andrew B

          Or festering blightgors to go with the rest of ‘blight’ themed stuff of late.

    • EnTyme

      I don’t see much in the way of mobility other than these guys. Most Nurgle models have a movement of about 5″, and very little range. I imagine these will end up being a necessity.

      • I’ve got like 20 chaos knights, 12 plague drones, I don’t think these guys will be mandatory unless they’re in a really good battalion

        • EnTyme

          Yeah, you get a lot more options if you’re building a mixed Nurgle list, but if you like themed armies like me, a Nurgle Rotbringers list is going to be more limited in mobility.

  • euansmith

    Oh, wow! I thought that these were conversions. I didn’t realise they were an actual kit. The Putrid Blightkings are some of my favourite GW minis.

    • EnTyme

      That kit is just absolutely amazing! So many options and opportunities for conversions! If we’re lucky, this kit will be even half as good.

  • Zack Seiders

    Someone make these flies into a mount for a chaos lord or sorcerer, those Palaquin’s stink!

  • Jose Luis Camarasa

    An army 100% based on obesse knights is something that is beggining to get less and less appeling to me

    • euansmith

      I’m the other way. I think it is a nice change from all the ripped guys in the other factions.
