About Me

  1. Hi everyone! Just stopping in to make a short intro. I've been collecting and building since early 2000's(?) started with Space Wolves and Empire but then moved on to build a 2000+ High Elves army while continuing my Empire army for several years. Took a long break and am now back with a hunger to start building my first Non-Order army. With some minor prods and allout demands from my 4 year old daughter and some personal researching, I'm thinking of going with Maggotkin of Nurgle. So, for those of you here who play or have played them, would anyone be able to help me out with figuring out how to start out or what some of the best/ most fun lists are to build for? Super excited to get started and get some models rolling. Thanks for having me!
  2. Hi everyone, Does the Maggotkin Witherstave artefact effect enemy mounts? The Forces of Nurgle rules on page 58 say "Some heroes have a mount that they can ride. In such cases, any command traits or artefacts can only be used to affect attacks made by the hero, and have no effect on attacks made by their mount unless specifically stated otherwise". The Witherstave on page 64 says "Re-roll hit rolls of 6 for enemy units within 12" of the bearer". I understand the mount rule prevents you from getting a bonus from artefacts you take for the character, for instance the Rune Blade from Chamon wouldn't make your mount have rend, but it would be silly if the penalty from Witherstave effected a Zombie Dragon's attacks but not the dragon attacks from a Vampire Lord on Zombie Dragon.
  3. Hey so I'm looking at starting a 2000 mortal nurgle list after I finish painting up my nighthaunt and this is what I came up with: 1 x Glotkin 1 x Lord of Aflictions 1 x Lord of Plagues 3 x 5 Putrid Blightkings 4 x Pusgoyle Blightlords 3 x Nurglings The plan is for the pusgoyle and LoA to fly up and take key back line units, the Glotkin and 2 PBL works a block just slowly marching through mid and then the other PBL, along with the LoP, to act as more utility, going where need be. Lastly the nurglings wUlf be used to take objectives or harass the enemy back line while the core units move up. Any thoughts on the list? I want to keep it primarily mortal and it is not intended to be ultra tournament competitive. Any input would be great, thanks! :)
  4. Hi I’m new to the hobby, and I fell in love with the Maggotkin models. I’m in process of building an army, a big chunk of it arrives tomorrow. I’m thinking of a blightcyst battalion as the bulk. Here is my 2000pt list so far- -glotkin (general) -gutrot spume -Lord of blights -Harbinger of decay -chaos sorcerer lord on horse -blightking unit x3 -15 marauder horsemen unit with javelins My idea is that I have glotkin with two units of blightkings as a big block, slowly going forward. Gutrot spume deepstrikes with a unit of BLKs. Then I have a unit of marauder horsemen supported by a mounted chaos sorcerer lord; giving them re-rolls of 1s. Then I have a harbinger of decay to buff either the BLKs with glotkin or screened by the marauders can run forward to buff gutrot spume’s deepstrike. Which is a great distraction while glotkin, lord of blights and BLKs get in position. I wanted a mobile unit, so I thought the marauders would be super fast and can retreat, shoot and charge. They can catch objectives or screen harbinger while he plants a Feculent Gnarlmaw. Is my list any good? Are my ideas realistic? Would you replace any units? Should I drop chaos sorcerer for lord of plagues? What artifacts or spells etc? Are the marauders in insufficient numbers and just a gimmick that’s not worth it? -stay tuned for ton loads of conversion- I’m doing a sea theme with rotting flesh looking like blue cheese. And the BLKs are going to be a proper ship’s motley crew
  5. I am about to play in a local tournament, and I was wondering if my army was any good. I am a long time Nurgle player, but I am trying a new playstyle. Tell me what yall think... I call it Swift Contagion, it is a 2500pt Nurgle Rotbringers and Maggotkin army... Leaders: The Glottkin Lord of Afflictions Lord of Plagues Lord of Blights Harbringer of Decay Gutrot Spume Units: 2 units of 3 nurglings 4 units of 5 PBK's 2 units of 2 Pusgoyle Blight Lords I am a bit confused on how contagion points work! How many points is a feculent gnarlmaw or plague bearers? Do I have to spend points to summon them? What is the new contagion cycle? If y'all could answer these that would be great! Thank you so much! Please tell me how my army is!

  8. Twentysomethingth time's a charm... I'm now in my third decade in this hobby, and as far back as I can remember my New Year's resolution has always been "paint what you've got before you buy any more!" Nevertheless, like the mound of skulls at the foot of Khorne's throne, my plastic mountain of shame continued to grow. The point of this blog is to keep me honest and make 2018 the year I break the back of my backlog. I'm focusing on one faction a month, starting with Nurgle in January. I'll be setting mini goals each week and doing my best to keep things updated. As it stands my plan is: January: Nurgle February: Bloodbound March: Tzeentch April: Slaanesh May: Slaves to Darkness June: Seraphon July: Stormcast and Free Peoples August: Aelves September: Brayherds October: Destruction November: 40K (shh!) December: Inevitable impulse purchases.
  9. Hey fellow Maggotkin! I (almost entirely) finished painting my first model! This Putrid Blightking is lacking a base banner color and a satin varnish, but beyond that he's basically done! I think I'll go back and touch up his apron when I paint the other PBKs, though. Feel free to ask any questions about the paint job or basing. I learned a great technique from my local GW manager: to get cork board edges to firm up and look less jagged, apply PVA glue to the edges. For the list, this one utilizes a Beastmen battalion: Leaders: Great Unclean One: General, Tome of a Thousand Poxes, Grandfather's Blessing, Favoured Poxes, Blade and Bell configuration Lord of Blights: Rustfang Festus the Leechlord: Blades of Putrefaction Great Bray-Shaman Battlelines: Ungors x10 Ungors x10 Ungors x10 Putrid Blightkings x10 Other Units: Centigors x20 5x Tuskgor Chariots x1 Endless Spells: Soulsnare Shackles Battalions: Pestilent Throng The strategy this list employs involves sending the Centigors and chariots flying across the battlefield on turn 1, pinning the opponent in his or her deployment zone while your army takes up advantageous positions. When near the GUO and GB-S, the beastmen units get +6" to their movement, meaning the chariots will move 16" and the Centigors will move 20". The latter can run and charge natively, and the former can use the Feculent Gnarlmaw, since the battalion gives them the Nurgle keyword. The other gift it provides is that, upon death, all the beastmen in this list will "explode" on a 2+, dealing one mortal wound to all enemy units within 7". So after pinning the opponent in place early, the chariots will splatter a MW over hopefully a few units. The Centigors have an ability that gives them +1 to hit in exchange for being +1 to hit for opponents. The downside of that can be addressed by the Lord of Blight's command ability. If BoP goes off, they do MWs on 5+ with 4 attacks each, for a total of 81 attacks that reroll wounds on a turn in which they charged, likely wiping out whatever they hit. The Ungors are 60 pts for a unit of 10 and are needed for the battalion; they just try to screen and be annoying.  The GB-S can use his Devolve spell to move enemy units out of cover and into combat, if desired. The Blight Kings and LoB move into the thick of things and contest for central objectives. Let me know what you think of the list and the painted up PBK! Next time I'll offer up another competitive list and hopefully some more pictures of the rest of the unit.
  10. Hello fellow Maggotkin! It's New Year's Day, so ... new year, new army. Nurgle caught my eye largely due to its fantastic models and its strategic diversity. I started painting my first Warhammer miniature in years yesterday, a Putrid Blight King that has been a blast so far, despite that I forgot how to set up my wet palette properly and struggled to keep the right amount of paint on my brush. Regarding Putrid Blight Kings: in reading the Nurgle battletome, it struck me, as it seems to have struck most, that PBKs are key units for the army. It was the first unit I reached for at the store, with a Lord of Blights coming soon after for support. From there, I picked up a Start Collecting! box and Horticulous Slimux, with the aim of putting together a list like this: Leaders: Poxbringer: Favoured Poxes Festus the Leechlord: Blades of Putrefaction Horticulous Slimux Lord of Blights: General, Rustfang Battlelines: Plaguebearers x30 Putrid Blight Kings x10 Chaos Warriors x5 Other Units: Nurglings x3 Plague Drones x6 Hellstriders of Slaanesh x5 This is not the most competitive list, but it allows me to paint different miniatures and get a feel for how different units function before taking more advantage of the synergies and combos in the army. The strategy for this list will be for the Plaguebearers to advance and take on the bulk of the opponent's main force, with the LoB using his command ability on them to make them -4 to hit in shooting and -2 to hit in combat and the Poxbringer activating their daemon focus and attempting to cast Favoured Poxes on the unit that most needs to be killed. The PBKs follow and try to set up on a central objective or line up an advantageous charge, with Festus keeping them healthy and casting Blades of Putrefaction on them while the LoB gives them a shooting attack and uses Rustfang on their target. Meanwhile, the Plague Drones and Horticulous head off to a far objective, with the latter dropping a Feculent Gnarlmaw to ensure they can run and charge, along with turning on the Plague Drones' daemon focus. The Nurglings deep strike (if possible) and either go for an enemy ranged or support unit or head for the least threatening objective. The Hellstriders of Slaanesh, with their banner that provides -1 to hit in an area around them, look to support either the main force or the mobile wing of Horticulous and the drones. The Chaos Warriors sit at home on an objective or screen for a more important unit. Next time I'll post an image of what I've managed to paint and take a stab at some more competitive lists for the future. But until then, any ideas on tweaking my starting list, or tips for a starting Nurgle/AoS player?
  11. Here, I plan to write about my involvement with Age of Sigmar. I am getting into AoS for the first time, after having played Warhammer 40,000 off and on every few years since the early 2000s. Currently I am just beginning to collect a Maggotkin of Nurgle army and learn the lore of AoS. In this blog, I will detail my thoughts related to both the hobby and strategic sides of the army, sharing my progress with pictures and, eventually, battle reports and more! I typically go deep into the hobby, and I attempt to paint amazing miniatures. I may also decide to write some fiction about the army as I develop its backstory, especially if there is demand. Tournaments may be in the future, so some posts will explore current Nurgle tournament lists and ways to iterate on them or theorycraft completely new lists. I plan to check the blog regularly for comments and feedback. If anyone has any questions or comments, I'll try to address them, so feel free to ask anything. About me: My name is Hitch, and I am 30 years old and live near Chicago. I have a passion for gaming and worldbuilding, among other things (Go Bears!). One of my dreams is to write a worldbuilding sci fi/fantasy series in the line of Dune/the Malazan Book of the Fallen. I have two great cats with opposite personalities and a wonderful fiancee.
  12. Here are some wips that I have on the table that I'm hoping to have done before the end of the year. Teaching seven classes this semester has really knocked out my hobby time! I've got a ton of work left to do on these guys, plus the numerous other Nurgle warriors and demons.
  13. +++ Updated 1k List, Below +++ Hello everyone, This is my first post on TGA! I've chosen Maggotkin of Nurgle for my first AoS army. I would like some veterans to give me advice as I plan on having my first game soon. I currently own all the models for the 1,000 point list: HQ: Lord of Blights - 140 HQ: Poxbringer - 120 Battleline: 5x Blightkings - 160 Battleline: 5x Blightkings - 160 Battleline: 10x Plaguebarers - 120 Plague Drones: 3x - 200 Nurglings 3x - 100 Thank you in advance ? ++ I removed the 2k list as I'd like to build a 1k list first ++
  14. Might be a silly question but couldn’t figure out while I was playing last night, but does the Doomsday Bell affect the Great Unclean One himself or just units around him? Thanks in advance

    Age of Sigmar started out simple enough. But the first General's Handbook changed a lot of things. Suddenly you could personalise a few things for your army with command traits for your general and artefacts for your heroes. Then dropped the first battletomes which included allegiance abilities. And the amount grew rapidly. Because I don't like flipping back and forth in my books for every other ability, I created some cards to help keep the important rules right at the table, beside your models. All cards are available as print files with 3mm bleed and cutting marks, as a 'web' version (for viewing on smartphones/tablets), US letter and DIN A4 printing sheet. each set contains: cover / card backside, Battle Traits, Command Traits, Artefacts, cards for spell lores and faction specific skills card size is 63 x 88 mm (same as Pokemon, Magic, 40k Datacards, etc.) language: English I tried to keep the original wording, but sometimes I had to abbreviate it to fit on the card without scaling down the font size. The rule intentions should still be clear. 'Dice' was continuously replaced with D3 or D6, 'wound roll' with 'To-Wound roll' (same for hit), 'Mortal Wounds' sometimes with 'MW' each set can be stored in a faction specific card box, with contents listed on the back (instructions) If you find any errors or have suggestions, please let me know. I had fun creating these cards and hope people will find them useful and have fun using them in their games. All rules, artwork and the Age of Sigmar logo © Games Workshop PLC These cards are for personal use only and you should always keep your General's Handbook and/or Battletome nearby to solve any conflicts from bad wording on the cards. These cards are only a playing aid and never could nor should replace an official publication. Please let me know if I have used anything you would like to be removed. Overview and changes
  16. Looking for any advice or feedback on the following lists I've been toying with; Allegiance: Chaos Leaders The Glottkin (420) - Lore of Malignance: Blades of Putrefaction Great Unclean One (340) - General - Plaue Flail & Massive Bilesword - Trait: Pestilent Breath - Lore of Virulence: Glorious Afflictions Poxbringer Herald of Nurgle (120) - Artefact: The Witherstave - Lore of Virulence: Favoured Poxes Battleline 30 x Plaguebearers (320) Units 10 x Putrid Blightkings (320) 5 x Putrid Blightkings (160) 3 x Plague Drones (200) 3 x Nurglings (100) Total: 1980 / 2000 Extra Command Points: 0 Allies: 0 / 400 Wounds: 156 It's very character heavy points wise, my reasoning is to have the GuO help heal up the multi wound models. So was also thinking of the following list in its stead; Allegiance: NurgleLeadersThe Glottkin (420)- Lore of Malignance: Blades of PutrefactionPoxbringer Herald of Nurgle (120)- General- Trait: Pestilent Breath - Artefact: The Witherstave - Lore of Virulence: Glorious AfflictionsGutrot Spume (140)Poxbringer Herald of Nurgle (120)- Lore of Virulence: Favoured PoxesBattleline30 x Plaguebearers (320)10 x Putrid Blightkings (320)5 x Putrid Blightkings (160)Units3 x Nurglings (100)3 x Nurglings (100)3 x Plague Drones (200)Total: 2000 / 2000Extra Command Points: 0Allies: 0 / 400Wounds: 164 Idea is for nurglings to be a pain in the backside and help net extra contagion points to summon in extra help as and when needed. One of the poxbtinger will be up close supporting the drones. Also helping rebuff the enemy, may decided to make the other the general who will be hanging back and debuffing with favoured poxes. Would love some feedback ad I have only had 2 games in AoS2 and probably less than 20 in the previous edition. Very open to suggestions and changes Many thanks

  19. Hey all! I tend to wax poetic so TL;DR are Plague Drones and/or Beasts of Nurgle worth their points and why? So I've been working on expanding my pure Nurgle demons army and am trying to figure out which other Nurgle demons to add to my list. I have a solid core of plaguebearers to work with (60+ that I can use in any combination) every flavor of GUO and a Rottigus. So it comes down to either Plague Drones or Beasts of Nurgle for me. Plague Drones strike me as the more consistent of the two, they seem to be tanky statistic machines (tons of no rend attacks) and with the support of a Lord of Afflictions they might be able to get some work done though I don't see them doing any heavy lifting. I'd love to be wrong though and hear from someone who has used them. Beasts seem to have similar problems but are even MORE inconsistent with their single D6 of attacks (they get the tongue too but it's one attack) the additional damage for being near a hero is nice and I see the Slimux synergy. Their big gimmick seems to be retreating and charging and thereby fishing for mortal wounds procs, but again, to me this is a gimmick and difficult to build a list around with any sort of consistency. Thoughts? Anyone been able to make them work? Is there a Nurgle demon unit I'm forgetting?
