GW: Next Week – Blightlords and Rot Flys and Pipes, Oh My

3 Minute Read
Jan 7 2018

Take a look at what’s coming next week for Nurgle.

It’s Nurgle, Nurgle, and more Nurgle this next week from GW. Whether the AoS or 40K version, fans of everyone’s favorite fetid feculent friendly fellow will have something to both rejoice over and get grossed out by as they discover the minute, disgusting details that are packed into every new Nurglite model these days. From ruptured intestines, fanged maws where they shouldn’t be, to fleshy flaps, boils, and pustules, there’s something for everyone.

First up, there are the Age of Sigmar releases, which feature the Pusgoyle Blightlords and the Rot Flies that bear them.

If you’ve got a Rotbringers army, or if you’re looking for some new tactical options for your Nurgle force, both the Lord of Blights and Pusgoyle Blightlords are excellent options. The former helps add ranged attacks to nearby Putrid Blightkings, while the latter are amongst the fastest units in the entire Nurgle army. Meanwhile, if you’re looking for another Hero for your army, the Pusgoyle Blightlords kit also builds the Rot Fly mounted Lord of Afflictions, a terrifying overlord who brings Nurgle’s plagues to bear from above.

Then on the 40K side of things, we have the new friends from the Chaos Daemon Codex:


For the Daemons of Nurgle, meanwhile, the Beast of Nurgle will be available next week for your Warhammer 40,000 or Warhammer Age of Sigmar army, as well as the Sloppity Bilepiper. These jovial servants of Nurgle are a great addition to any army, with the former acting as deadly shock units (as they bound up the battlefield to “befriend” your foes) while the latter provides handy bonuses for most units in your army (bar Plaguebearers, who are far too dour to enjoy the capering of these corrupt comedians).

So there you have it. What’s new in the world of Nurgle. There’s still plenty more coming out for the diseased denizens of Nurgle’s domain, so stay tuned.

Still not convinced these aren’t just alternate names for Benedict Cumberbatch or Englebert Humperdink.
