Plaguebearers are shambling, pustulent creatures with gangling, bony limbs. Their bodies are swollen with decay, so much so that glistening innards are exposed through rents in their skin. They possess a single, cyclopean eye and a single horn rising above their haggard, drawn faces. Their bodies are covered in filth and parasites. Plaguebearers are constantly surrounded by clouds of droning flies and chant monotonous hymns, their gait a staggering lope. They attempt to keep count of the number of noxious plagues unleashed by Nurgle; an impossible task, for the Grandfather of Plagues constantly invents new strains of viruses.
Plagueridden are unit commanders, akin to a human sergeant. The greatest amongst them may join the ranks of the Plague Drones, assuming they have the skill to ride the Rot Flies into battle.
Heralds of NurgleEdit
Some mortals are more resistant to the ravages of Nurgle's Rot than others. These people create an unusually long incubation periods, resulting in larger, tougher Plaguebearers. These are the Heralds of Nurgle, commanders of the daemon hordes of Nurgle when a Great Unclean One isn't around to lead himself.
Plague Drones are the equivalent of cavalry in a daemon host of Nurgle. Mounted on Rot Flies, these warriors are truly feared by Nurgle's enemies, and for good reason. Should someone be unlucky enough to be attacked by a Rot Fly, the beast will rip his head from his shoulders with it's collossal maw, before spitting the skinned skull into the waiting hands of it's riders, where it'll then be tossed into the enemy's ranks. The greatest riders are elevated to the position of Plaguebringer, leading their own horrific squadron into the enemies of Papa Nurgle.
