Plague Bearer with a Plague Sword

Plague Swords are a type of Daemonic weapon used by followers of Nurgle such as Plague Bearers and Plague Marines.[2] These weapons are infused with foul infections and toxins that can make the merest scratch fatal.[1]

A variant exists known as the Father of Blades. These are rumoured to be the original Plague Swords created not long after Nurgle came into being, the ancient Fathers of Blades have spent millennia spreading corruption. Their cracked and rusted lengths deaden the senses of those nearby, and any who mistime their swings find their attacks deflected off its corroded edge.[3]
