The Maggotkin of Nurgle are the followers of the Plague God. Generous in their distribution of epidemics and loving in the care they have for the foul creations of the Grandfather, the Maggotkin of Nurgle seek to bloat the Mortal Realms with rot and contagion.[1b][1a]

By allowing diseases to spread far and wide, they herald the coming of life in its most vivid and natural expression. Indeed, if one is to value and cheer at the birth of every maggot and parasites allowed to thrive in raddled corpses, then disease and rot become not the faltering of life towards death, but the overabundance of life.[1a] In this, the Maggotkin are the enforcers of the natural cycle, their ever-loving actions ultimately making the circle of life so vividly round that its curves can be seen by mortal eyes, to their greatest displeasure.

History

Since time immemorial, Nurgle has competed against his siblings in their great game. While typically rated third of their number, this is a consequence of the cyclical nature of his might being tied to the spread of plague and pestilence.[1a]

Age of Chaos

At the dawn of the coming of Chaos to the Mortal Realms, Nurgle set his eyes upon the inexhaustible cornucopia of Ghyran, the Realm of Life.[1a] The forces of the Everqueen were broken and forced into hiding.[1a]

Age of Sigmar

When the Realmgate Wars broke out, the shock troops of the God King were able to ally with the surviving Sylvaneth present in Ghyran and seal the Genesis Gate.[1a] In this action, they cut Ghyran from the Allpoints, precenting Archaon from easily sending reinforcements to that realm.[1a]
