Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Blightwar
Blight War is a campaign supplement for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.
War rages across the Mortal Realms. The focal points of the first great battles were those magical portals known as Realmgates, doorways through reality with immense strategic importance. The wars over these were brutal and bloody, and while Sigmar's glorious Stormcast Eternals can lay claim to victory, it was not quite the all-conquering victory for which they might have hoped. It was not long before the Dark Gods marshalled their counterattack – and none were so febrile and repulsive as those of Grandfather Nurgle...
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Blightwar is a great-value boxed set, featuring 32 plastic Citadel miniatures split across the armies of Nurgle and the Stormcast Eternals. It focuses on the Blightwar – Nurgle’s dastardly plan to befoul the realm of Ghyran using his Grand Cultivator Horticulous Slimux, and the heroic attempts to stop him by Neave Blacktalon, deadly huntress and swift-footed assassin of the Stormcast Eternals.
A 40-page softback book featuring:
- A brief history of the Realmgate Wars and the events leading up to Blightwar; - An overview of Nurgle, the Chaos God of Pestilence who seeks to take over Ghyran with his own foul garden; - An overview of the Stormcast Eternals, living weapons who blaze with celestial light as they scour Chaos from the Realms; - Cycles of War – the Chaos invasion that became known as the War of Life, and the devastating impact of Nurgle’s malign influence; - The Season of Sowing – details of Nurgle’s numerous unpleasant attempts to dominate, waging war on countless fronts to weaken the resolve of the Stormcast Eternals; no matter how decisively they are held back the chaos continues, and the sowings go on… - An introduction to Horticulous Slimux and his dreadful mount Mulch – humorless genius and leader of the rotten assault on Ghyran; - An introduction to Neave Blacktalon, instrument of Sigmar’s will who will accept neither defeat nor death in her zealous pursuit and destruction of Nurgle’s hordes.
