Anathrax is a Daemon World in the Eye of Terror devoted to Nurgle.


A lush but pestilent planet, Anathrax is full of giant bulbous fungi, made up of puffy-eyed heads that cough and sneeze a grey mucous which corrupts those who touch it.[1]


During the Abyssal Crusade, the Iron Drakes chapter was ambushed on the planet by its vile vegetation and Plague Marines, resulting in their eventual corruption into the Grey Death. Another chapter on the crusade — the Argent Hammers - became corrupted on Anathrax, renaming themselves the Talons of Anathrax.[1]


Anathrax's name is derived from anthrax, a notorious disease.
