Hope they keep the Nurgle keyword… I bought last week Maggotkin of Nurgle units for 260$

then you shall be punished for your perfidy, the only allies skaven can trust are other skaven. And even then its pushing it.

Well loosing a attack-after-death is lost, but still what is mathematically best? Re-roll of wounds or +1 attack. And yeah, +1 to hit and +1 to wound is seem absurdly strong for monks

Has anyone got a list of what was lost/gained compared to before?

Well, something that significantly changed with the foetid blades of the plague monks, is that that you now can reroll any hitrolls you want, instead of failed hit rolls, which is big when this fellow plagued rats get a debuff on their hit role.

Lots of changes. Also rumored to get our plaguemonks as battleline you have to be pure pestilens (not counting allies). So no other rats

Do we know what the monk leaders’ plague scroll does yet? It’s missing off the warscroll and it’s really bugging me 😅

More changes than I expected.  It appears that the there is only the book of woes now.  Are the great plagues gone too?  Seems that way.

It's mentioned on the warscroll on the app, but I don't remember seeing it mentioned on the warscroll download on the website.  I'm still unsure about it.

I imagine the Plague Scroll will just be very similar to before, a once-per-game activation. I like that they're keeping those to the unit leader only to be honest, the banner providing double damage on 6s makes me so hard i can hear the Dark Souls soundtrack coming from my pants.

Um, they still have the Nurgle keyword, and you can put as many Pestilens models as you want in your nurgle army (You still need Nurgle Battleline)

You can not include non-Pestilens Nurgle units into a Skaven army, though. But I don't think anyone was really trying to do that.

I know, that comment predates the release of the new warscrolls, which I have by the way reviewed in their entirety over on AOS Shorts if you're interested.

The book doesn't seem to be single use, huge potential for MW spamming there imo

No problem man, i have a mega pestilens primer in the pipeline covering every model from how best to equip them, how to paint them easily, a review of their rules, how they work in  a larger army, the works. This thing is a monster and my goal is to drop it on Saturday when the book releases.

The scroll does appear to be missing from the pdf in the store page as well as the app, unfortunately. The pdf warscroll card doesn't even mention it, whereas the app mentions it but doesn't provide details. I'm afraid I think the book is the only option now. That said, plague monks getting access to the clanrats old +1/+1 size rule more than makes up for it.

Is the furnace 12 or 13 wounds in the new book? Facehammer podcast say 13 twice but app says 12. Really important for the skitter leap!

Never been so sad to receive an extra wound on an already good unit before :/
