Lord of Nurgle
Lord of Afflictions
Lords of Afflictions are Rotbringer lords mounted atop Rot Flies that spearhead the attacks of Nurgle's armies. They can command Pusgoyle Blightlords to move faster.[1c] They are grotesquely swollen and almost entirely encased in thick armour. They are plague vectors supreme, their principal duty to Nurgle being to spread as much plague as physically possible. Contagion from those wounded by the Lord of Afflictions spreads out at a frightening speed, leaving a blossoming epidemic in the Lord's wake.
Lord of Blights
In battle, the Lord remains vigilant for hardy enemies so their bodies can be added to his orchards after the battle. They plant corpse orchards from the meat-mulch from battles and various plagues. From these orchards arise twisted gallows trees that blight the land and bear aloft the bodies of the Lord's chosen victims. The head of each cadaver is carefully filled with pus drawn from a Great Unclean One and sealed with a mixture of blood and wax. When they are ready the withered bodies drop from the trees. Then the Lord of Blights collects his harvest and distributes them to his followers so that they will fling them at the enemy to explode in a blast of noxious effluvia.
The finest specimens of their Thrice-rippened Death's Heads harvest are kept by the Lord which he carries into battle hung from his Gallowrack, which they hurl at their foes as diseased projectiles. The Lord of Blights is swollen with muscle and carry an enormous, dented Bubotic Hammer which is used to shatter bone and rupture organs while his Vermin Shield, spiked and disease-ridden, can be used to both block incoming attacks as well as to smash enemies from their feet. Both of these are covered in Nurgle icons.[1b]
On their belts they carry a Plague Knife.
Lord of Plagues
Lords of Plagues are blessed mortal followers of Nurgle, poisoning anyone that get's close enough to him with Nurgle's Rot. Their repulsive body is infested with a myriad of diseases and bloated with rancid boils, open sore and cankerous bulges, and, like all Nurgle's servants, have the ability to regenerate.[1a][1d] They are typically the most directly belligerent of Nurgle's champions, charging into where the fighting is thickest and leaving the battlefield ready for colonisation by Nurgle's diseases in their wake, by reducing their foes into filth-ridden rotten corpse mulch.[1d]
