Amongst the swiftest and most dangerous of Nurgle’s followers, Plague Drones are high-ranking Plaguebearers who ride to war astride huge and malevolent Rot Flies. These daemonic airborne mounts attack the foe with stingers, proboscises, foul mouthparts and chitinous limbs, while their riders hurl death’s heads into the enemy lines that explode in showers of infectious filth.
