The Chaos Spawn created thanks to Nurgle’s ‘blessings’ are hideously tough.
As the foe press forward they are engulfed in a whirling storm of fleshrust flakes that clog lungs and eyes.
Like a sickness flaring back to life, these stolid warriors erupt from their dug-in positions to counter attack.
Assault force troops arrive on the battlefield amid billowing clouds of pestilence, diseased Drop Pod exhaust fumes, the leaking effluence of landing crafts and rot blooms expelled directly from their foetid teleportation chambers.
Utilising far away artillery, the Death Guard pound an area of the battlefield with flesh-starved blight spores that rampantly spread over any unfortunate enough to be nearby.
On occasion a contagion of Nurgle will flare up brilliantly in an all-consuming wave of infection.

Those favoured by Nurgle are inured to pain, their rotting bodies shrugging off all but the most traumatic damage with ease.Each time an attack is allocated to a model in this unit, subtract 1 from the Damage characteristic of that attack (to a minimum of 1).
The Death Guard are carriers of countless infections and contagions, each a gift from Nurgle. Whenever they march to war, these diseases spread, contaminating all around, sapping the strength of its victims, draining them of energy, withering their muscles and overwhelming their immune system. Such is its malefic nature, they can even undo metallic bonds, alien psychic materials and all manner of other elements and components, rendering even armoured vehicles vulnerable.If every unit from your army has the DEATH GUARD keyword (excluding UNALIGNED units), this unit gains the following ability:
