A Noxious Blightbringer

Noxious Blightbringers are a type of Chaos Space Marine warrior. These Plague Marines wield gigantic bells of Nurgle on their armour.[1] The bells are capable of generating sonic waves that bring pain and disorientation to the enemy.[2]

Overview

Heralds of pestilence, Noxious Blightbringers move before the main Death Guard advance. The primary role of Noxious Blightbringers is to sow dismay and weakness amidst the enemy ranks. The dissonance of their chiming bells sends waves of entropy rolling across the battlefield to batter not only the enemy’s physical senses, but their souls. The blessings of Nurgle manifest wherever the toxic waves hit home, each thunderous toll wearing the foe down a little more and spreading sickness and corruption further. The enemy’s will to fight erodes and faith and conviction fails in the face of this onslaught. In close proximity, the toll from the Blightbringers torment enemy Psykers. Not only must these unfortunates deal with the violent waves that threaten to overwhelm their tightly controlled abilities, but they must also face the corruption of their psyche.[3]

Every Plague Company counts Noxious Blightbringers amongst its ranks, but they are especially prevalent in the vectoriums of the 3rd. Such warbands as the Putrid Choir or the Dolorous Gnaw rarely take to the battlefield without two or three Noxious Blightbringers to herald them into battle, while Lord Gothax always has seven Blightbringers accompanying him.[3]
