The air fills with the thunderous drone of membranous wings as the warriors of the Affliction Cyst ride their bloated Rot Flies into battle. Enemies scatter in panic as Pusgoyle Blightlords plunge down from on high, their dark shadows heralding disease and death.
The Droning Sky: Instead of setting up a unit from this battalion on the battlefield, you can place it to one side and say that it is set up hovering in the skies. You can do this with as many units from the battalion as you wish. At the end of your first movement phase, set up each of these units more than 9" from any enemy models.
Diseased Onslaught: If the Lord of Afflictions from this battalion uses his Spearhead of Contagion command ability, it affects all units from this battalion that are within 14" of him, instead of only one unit.
