Nurgle teams are a form of Chaos team whose players worship the god Nurgle. Nurgle is the Chaos god of corruption and disease, and he rewards his players by granting them a rather unpleasant disease known as Nurgle’s Rot.The fact that Nurgle teams smell awful is assumed rather than proven. No one would deny that they are made up of semi decomposed flesh and are permanently surrounded by swarms of flies. But by the time anyone gets close enough to get a really decent sniff, they’ve contracted one of Nurgle’s nasty diseases and usually die before they can suggest a new personal hygiene regime.
As with most Chaos teams, the Nurgle team is at its best when it can get stuck in and directly take on opposing players. And if any do happen to get past them, then the Nurgle team’s Beast of Nurgle is there to immobilize them with its lashing tentacles.
What it has in strength and toughness, the Nurgle team lacks in agility. Nurgle Warriors have a lousy Agility value and Move rate, and do not make good ball bearers. Even if the team does get the ball, with such a terrible average Move rate, these worshippers of the Chaos god Nurgle, could find themselves being beaten not just by the opposing side but also by the clock!
Big Guy: The Beast of Nurgle
The Beast of Nurgle is without a doubt the worst abomination seen on a Blood Bowl field. It smells, it is ugly, slow and stupid. Yet, the Beast of Nurgle is incredibly strong. Thanks to its tentacles, it can grab other players, even the fastest, and not let them go. The Beast is catchers' and blitzers' worst nightmare while it is probably the sweetest dream for their coaches.KhemriNecromantic
