Look, when you get sick, the virus or bacteria or whatever is causing it doesn't really care how much it's hurting you. It's just going about its thing. Such is the case with the Death Guard, Nurgle's soldiers against anything not contaminated with pathogen. They also don't care about one-another so much. They each have their own job to do. In this preview of their upcoming codex, we get a look at just how this ability works in 40k.
From the article:
The Death Guard codex is on its way early next year, and it features five key changes to their rules which will have an enormous impact on how these putrid servants of Nurgle operate on the battlefield. Over the course of the week, we’re looking at each of these new rules in greater detail – so far we’ve covered Inexorable Advance and Deadly Pathogens – and discussing why Mortarion’s Traitor Legion is set to become more disgusting in battle than ever before!
Next up this week is the Death Guard’s Remorseless ability, which offers protection against the effects of Combat Attrition.
