Plague Champion

“All life . . . is a lie.”

The Herald of Nurgle is a walking tribute to death and a versatile commander that makes up for its lack of mobility with potentially powerful offense and utility. The Plague Champion can both excel at close combat or hang back; supporting allies and debilitating enemies from the backline.
