Nurgle month- week one: Stagrot Gladiators (BlightKings), and the Stagrot warband

The first week of Nurgle month will start with my newly painted Blightkings to mark the preorder release of the Maggotkin of Nurgle. Since this is my only AoS themed Nurgle force for this month, I thought I’d finish the unit off as soon as possible (the bases were left plain as I need more static grass).

My regular readers and followers may have remembered the Stagrot Gladiators way back last year, when I did my short backstory for my Blighting Skirmish warband (Part one Here and part two Here). This unit of Blightkings are the remnants of the surviving Gladiators who were blessed by Nurgle millennia ago. Led by their champion Alexandros, they raid villages and towns for treasure and sow a garden fit for the god of decay and rebirth.

Sadly, that’s I’ll I have that are new additions for my AoS Nurgle Collection, as part of Nurgle month. But check back for week four, as I’ll be presenting my own combined Maggotkin of Nurgle with all sorts of bizarre units.

Next week, we head to the far flung future of the 41st millennium, where even the plague god is still causing misery for the universe. The living are threatened every day with plight from the legion of Nurgle, as well as the machines that serve the Imperium. Just like this Stormtalons demise…..


Thank you for reading this post. If you have any questions, post a comment below and I’ll reply back as soon as I can. Thanks!

    1. Thank you! 🙂
      I’ll be basing it on the Heldrake datasheet, since that’s the only flyer Chaos Space Marines have. You’ll notice the corrupted Stormtalon has two flamers on the sides, which represent it’s weapons for flame attacks.

      I thought I’d make good use on my unused Stormtalon for my Chaos Faction, at least I won’t have to buy a Heldrake, not a fan of that kit.

      1. Oh yeah, I didn’t think about the Forge world Flyers tbh. However I don’t have the rules for their Chaos flyers, so I’m not sure on what equipment the flyer has.

        Haha that’s a good name twist for the flyer! 🙂

  1. Hehe, I’m glad you liked the name. 🙂

    Yeah, the Forgeworld stuff can be hard if you don’t already have the rules for it since a lot of it is in hardcover books they want you to buy. I’d probably run it as a heldrake too.
