Plaguebearers trudge to battle amidst the drone of flies’ wings and endless counting. These corpse-like daemons tally the diseases unleashed by Nurgle upon the Mortal Realms, and as they do so they stab and hack at their enemies with filth-ridden plagueswords. Relentless and resilient in equal measure, Plaguebearers overwhelm their victims as surely as a terminal sickness.
