Herald of Nurgle

Herald of Nurgle[3]

Heralds of Nurgle, the most common of which are known as Poxbringers, are mortals who resisted Nurgle's Rot for a lengthy period. Though the disease inevitably claims them, their resistance to the ravages of the disease created a longer incubation period, spawning a more powerful Daemon. These larger, more powerful Plaguebearers often lead armies of their kind and sometimes mount Rot Flies to form squadrons of Plague Drones.[1]

Several types of Heralds of Nurgle exist, such as the Sloppity Bilepiper and Spoilpox Scrivener.[9]
