The Death Guard are a Traitor Legion entirely steeped in the power of Nurgle, the god of death and plagues, their very essence the epitome of all that vile Chaos God stands for. Their bodies are hives of filth and decay, their ﬂesh eternally rotting away even as it is renewed by the ceaseless process of death and rebirth.
The Death Guard are one of the Traitor Legions of Chaos Space Marines. They worship and devote themselves exclusively to the Chaos God Nurgle and as a result of his mutational "gifts" they have become Plague Marines; Astartes who are eternally rotting away within their power armour and infected with every known form of disease and decay but who are immune to all pain or minor injury.
Inside this book, you'll find:
• Background on the reunification of Mortarion with the Death Guard during the Great Crusade, his eventual fall into heresy, and the process inflicted upon the Death Guard as Nurgle's Destroyer Plague took them. • Information on the organisational structure of the Death Guard following the Horus Heresy and how their cohesion meant they were better able to enact war upon the galaxy. • Incredible photography of units, single miniatures, and armies on terrain, both on their own and as part of battle scenes. • Datasheets that cover every unit fieldable by a Death Guard army. • Death Guard-specific Stratagems, Warlord Traits, Relics, and psychic powers. • In-depth Crusade rules that let you grow your force as it spreads diseases and plague across the galaxy. • And more!
