Nurgle has struck at the established wisdom of the Realms’ strategists this past week as it becomes clear that his armies will be significantly reduced in size, alongside a general reorganisation of his forces.
Commentators have proposed that Nurgle is working towards a more focused and elite composition in his warbands, a sharp move away from the hordes of Blightkings seen in previous battles. This has surprised some, particularly those who predicted that arms manufacturers would push for larger army sizes to increase their profits.
Not all are happy with the changes. The Glottkin in particular have vented their concerns, reflecting a fear that their sheer size will prevent their deployment in future battles regardless of their battlefield expertise. Calls for the guidelines to be revised are already being heard in Nurgle’s Garden, despite the fact that they have yet to be released.
