Pestilent Throng

The Nurgle-worshipping beasts of a Pestilent Throng see their god as the rotter of civilisations and the eroder of realms. They are the bearers of his disease, and the agents of his entropy. As they continue to worship him, their bodies become host to plagues and parasites, growing ever more bloated and corpulent. Their skin erupts in multitudinous pustules and their sagging flesh rots away to leave weeping open sores. To simply look at these creatures induces vomiting in many hardened warriors, and the stench of decay that hangs in thick clouds around them can take the breath out of their enemy’s lungs. Rotfrays are made entirely of Pestilent Throngs. Though riddled with poxes, the Nurglesque beasts lose none of their strength, and their warpaths through the civilised lands are devastating, and leave naught but rot and decomposing bodies in their wake. Where they are met with resistance, the warriors of a Pestilent Throng charge heedlessly into battle, determined to either hack apart the enemy or to die as martyrs. Those beasts who are cut down explode in showers of rancid flesh foetid pus, imparting their infections to their foes as a final dying gift.
A Pestilent Throng consists of the following units:
 • 1-4 HEROES chosen in any combination from the following list: Beastlord, Dragon Ogor Shaggoth, Doombull, Great Bray-Shaman
 • 3-7 units chosen in any combination from the following list: Bestigors, Gors, Ungors, Ungor Raiders
 • 0-7 following list: Centigors, Bullgors, Dragon Ogors, Tuskgor Chariots
 • 0-2 Cygors or Ghorgons in any combination

Mortal Wounds
Some attacks, spells and abilities inflict mortal wounds. Do not make hit, wound or save rolls for mortal wounds. Instead, the damage inflicted on the target is equal to the number of mortal wounds that were suffered. Allocate any mortal wounds that are caused while a unit is attacking at the same time as any other wounds caused by the unit’s attacks, after all of the unit’s attacks have been completed. Mortal wounds caused at other times are allocated to models in the target unit as soon as they occur, in the same manner as wounds caused by damage from an attack.

After they have been allocated, a mortal wound is treated in the same manner as any other wound for all rules purposes.
