Carrying on with the Daemon lores, next up is the Lore of Nurgle.
Lore Attribute – Children of Nurgle – We will see this across all 3 lores just with different names. Basically for each wound caused by a spell a unit within 12″ of the caster gets to roll a D6 to see if they get some wounds back. For Nurgle it is Plaguebearers and Nurglings..
Signature spell: Stream of Corruption – Flamer/breath template direct damage spell that causes a wound with no armour saves if Tough test is failed. There is a lot of T3 stuff in WFB 😀
Miasma of Pestilence – Great augment spell that helps protect your units as it lowers WS & I by one or D3 if boosted extremely handy against those elite units like Elves and Warriors of Chaos.
Blades of Putrefaction – Augment spell that grants poison to attacks or boosts it if unit already have it!
Curse of the Leper – A hex spell that reduces target toughness by D3, This will hurt nearly everything in the game a spell your opponent will not want you to get!
Rancid Visitations – A magic missile that does random number of high strength hits, if they then fail a toughness test then they take another set of hits and you keep going till it is passed. Very nice spell that can hurt low toughness armies a lot!
Fleshy Abundance – Another augment spell that grants regeneration (can boost units that have it already). Handy to have around unless you are dealing with fire..
Plague wind – Vortex (remains in play) spell. So the small template moves artillery dice x casters magic level. (misfire centre on caster and moves random direction number of inches of magic level)
Anything that it passes over needs to pass a toughness test or take a wound with no armour save. It continues to move artillery dice a turn untill recast or misfire rolled. You can boost it to use the large template if you want. Continues the theme of Nurgle spells and is not to bad if you misfire as your Nurgle guys have decent Toughness.
So the Lore of Nurgle, like the other Daemon lores I like it the amount of T3 armies that are around in WFB means that you have some decent chance to hurt many things with this lore 🙂 I honestly cannot see a bad spell in there, maybe Plague Wind but I am not a fan of Vortices..
