Hulking warriors of Nurgle, the Putrid Blightkings carve their way through the enemy with slime-encrusted axes, hammers and flails. Their rotting bodies can absorb tremendous amounts of punishment, allowing the Blightkings to drive relentlessly through the foe’s battle line and shatter it apart, before hacking down the survivors with contemptuous ease.
