Nurgle Rotbringers: Pusgoyle Blightlords / Lord of Afflictions
Putrid Blightkings that succeed in infecting 77 foes with a vile curse according to the Feast of Maggots are rewarded by becoming Pusgoyle Blightlords. Symbiotically connected to the Rot Fly that he receives, the Blightlord rarely if ever leaves its saddle. Between the powerful blows of the Blightlords themselves and the lashing limbs and biting maws of their mounts, a band of Pusgoyle Blightlords can shatter an enemy battle line in a single charge. Like a wound that admits a lethal infection, they tear open a gap for the rest of the Rotbringers to flow into and destroy the foe from the inside out.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 2 Pusgoyle Blightlords. Each is mounted on an enormous Rot Fly, a revolting insect with 4 brittle wings that drips and drizzles foul fluids onto the battlefield as they drone through the skies. These flies are bloated and spindly at the same time, with numerous beady eyes and horrible fangs. The Blightlords themselves are particularly grim – 1 features a toothed maw in his distended belly, the other a series of veins, tentacles and Nurgle icons. Both models have large poles attached to their backs – you have the option of modelling them with either a cloth banner, a metal icon of Nurgle or (and this is really something) an impaled, rotting cadaver with an expression of sheer agony. They wield massive blighted weapons, with choices of scythes or a trident, and come with choices of covered or bare heads, equally grisly in detail. 3 Nurglings accompany them – 1 with a censer, 1 riding a tiny drone and 1 chewing gleefully on his own intestines…
The Pusgoyle Blightlords come as 76 components, and are supplied with 2 Citadel 60mm Round bases. This kit can be optionally used to assemble a Lord of Afflictions.
