Maggotkin of Nurgle: A closer look

Hi all. 

Next we will be looking at the newest Chaos faction, the Maggotkin of Nurgle,

Who are the Maggotkin of Nurgle

Not surprising, the Maggotkin of Nurgle are the daemon and mortal followers of the chaos god Nurgle. They are very resilient and often attack with poison coated weapons.

Why play Maggotkin of Nurgle

As I mentioned before, the followers of Nurgle are very resilient and hard to kill. If you like disgusting puss covered models then this one is defiantly the one for you. They have also been quite heavily involved in resent Black Library releases. 

How will they do in 2nd Edition

The recent Battletome release for Maggotkin of Nurgle was designed to work with 2nd Edition. Check out our review of the Battletome here

Here are a few examples of command abilities that will be available for Nurgle players.

All 3 of these are pretty powerful, if combined, then they are far too over powered. I just hope they take a lot of command points to do. 

There is also a new endless spell for Nurgle called the Emerald Lifeswarm. This will heal nearby Nurgle units, making an already resilient army, even harder to kill. 

I only really like the dark grim side of Nurgle. The rest I just find a bit silly. One thing that I do wish they done with Nurgle was release some cultists, like the ones described in the Order of the Fly. If they did, I would be extremely tempted. 

Let me know what you think in the comments down below. 

Take care :-)
