Nurgle is the Chaos God of plagues, whose power waxes strong when disease and despair ravage the Mortal Realms. Though he is a source of fear and revulsion to his enemies, Nurgle is a perversely paternal god, generous with his foul gifts and proud of his worshippers’ every disgusting achievement.This page contains all of the rules you need to field your Nurgle miniatures on the battlefields of the Mortal Realms, from a host of exciting allegiance abilities to a range of warscrolls and warscroll battalions. The rules are split into the following sections.

|Q:||What happens if the Putrid Blightkings’s Blighted Weapons ability is combined with the Blades of Putrefaction spell? Do I inflict D6 mortal wounds on a hit roll of 6+?|
No. The 6+ roll simply triggers both effects – therefore you inflict D6 hits (roll to wound and save normally), and 1 mortal wound in addition to any other damage.
|Q:||Can a Lord of Blights shoot with the Munificent Bounty Death’s Head?|
Nurgle’s power and blessings follow a never-ending cycle of fecundity and decay.

Areas of the Mortal Realms that are overrun by Nurgle’s minions become weak points in reality through which his daemons can be drawn from the Realm of Chaos.

Seeds of Corruption
Nurgle wishes to see rot and contagion bloom across the Mortal Realms, drowning the bastions of his enemies in a tide of putrid filth. Summoning forth the festering vegetation of the Plague God’s garden, his ebullient disciples spread his generous blessings far and wide.HOW TO USE BATTLEPLANS
The following battleplan enables you to fight a battle that epitomises the way the Maggotkin wage war. It should be fought using all of the Warhammer Age of Sigmar rules unless specifically indicated otherwise. The battleplan includes a map reflecting the landscape on which the battle is fought. The map is for a battlefield that is 6 feet by 4 feet in size, but you can use a smaller or larger area if you wish.
One player commands a Maggotkin army and their opponent commands the defenders of the realm the Maggotkin are invading. In addition to the armies, you will need at least three Feculent Gnarlmaws.
MAGGOTKIN PLAYER’S OBJECTIVES
Grandfather Nurgle has sent you to these lands, for he wishes to add them to the domains that thrive under his munificent rule. Subdue any defenders, using their corpses as the mulch that will bring forth the Garden of Nurgle.
One of Nurgle’s armies is approaching the land you hold dear, intent on turning it into a vile, disease-ridden parody of its current form. They must be stopped and driven back at all costs, before the rot that they bring can take hold.
The battlefield represents a fertile hinterland that Nurgle has demanded be brought under his control so that it can be blessed with the many gifts he can bestow. Players can choose to set up scenery as described on the Warhammer Age of Sigmar rules sheet. Any terrain features should be set up more than 6" from any cessnodes (see below). Do not set up any Feculent Gnarlmaws on the battlefield before the battle begins (they may appear during the battle, as described below).
Located in the defender’s territory are three cessnodes: locations that are ripe to be corrupted by Nurgle’s blessings, and from which can spring forth the first Feculent Gnarlmaws that will form the basis of a new patch of Nurgle’s garden. The position of each of the three cessnodes is shown on the deployment map with a fly symbol; you may wish to note their location with suitable marker.
The defender sets up all their units first, anywhere wholly within their territory that is more than 9" from the Maggotkin player’s territory (see map). The Maggotkin player sets up second, anywhere wholly within their territory. Do not set up any Feculent Gnarlmaws on the battlefield before the battle begins (they may appear during the battle, as described below).
The Maggotkin player takes the first turn in the first battle round.
BRINGING ON THE ROT
The Maggotkin player can change a cessnode into rotnode by summoning a Feculent Gnarlmaw and setting it up on the cessnode’s location.
Do not use any of the victory conditions from the Warhammer Age of Sigmar rules sheet. Instead, the Maggotkin player immediately wins a major victory if all three cessnodes are converted into rotnodes. Otherwise the battle lasts for five battle rounds.
If, at the end of the fifth battle round, the Maggotkin player has only converted up to one cessnode into a rotnode, the defender wins a major victory. In any other circumstances, each player calculates a victory score by adding up the Wounds characteristics of all the models that have been slain in the opposing army. The player with the higher score can claim a minor victory.
Path to Glory campaigns centre around collecting and fighting battles with a warband in the Age of Sigmar. Champions fight each other and gather followers to join them in their quest for glory, taking advantage of this age of unending battle to win glory and renown.In order to play Path to Glory campaigns you have to follow rules described here.
