Greetings, worshippers of Sigmar!
I got inspired by the recent "Slaanesh LLs"
thread made by @Timpeyo
...and then i told to myself~ "ya sloppy mortal! Move dat asinine human brain of yours and praise the Great Rotten God of Decay"
and...well, that's it~ Enough chit-chat! Let's start:
The Glottikin ~ when the Holy Trinity's gone not-so-well...
The first thing that comes to my mind when i think about Nurgle is surely the disgusting
Glottkin-Bros~ The Mind, The Face and The Fist of Nurgle
...or at least they reminds me something like that
A Trio of Nurgle Champions who led the Followers of Nurgle in their horrific Plague War upon the Empire of Man during the apocalyptic age known simply as The End Times
Mutated beyond their mortal forms, the Glottkins rank as the mightiest champions Nurgle has ever chosen, laying a virulent wake of destruction in their paths as they seek to corrupt the very heart of the Empire of Man, and turn its lands into a garden paradise of pus and disease.
They combine the darkest sorcery
, the most virulent plagues
and the most monstrous strength
to butcher any opponent that stand against the terrible might of their master Papa Nurgle! OTTO GLOTT
Otto is a formidable warrior and Chaos champion, equipped with his father's former farming scythe, and the leader of the Glottkin brothers.
His scabrous body bloated and became as tough as bark. Though the wounds he suffered on his steady rise to glory often did not heal completely, the contagions that drizzled from his opened guts grew so virulent they were soon weapons in their own right.
Otto took to coating the blade of his scythe with his own poisonous juices whenever he went into battle
, cementing his reputation as a harbinger of plague. Of all the brothers, Otto is the most driven. His taste for carnage has seen the roaming Glottkin triumph against the worshipping warbands of Slaanesh, Tzeentch, even of mighty Khorne.ETHRAC GLOTT
Ethrac is a highly schooled and powerful Sorcerer of Nurgle, radiating with the power and knowledge of Nurgle's many poxes and diseases.
A cunning and mean spirited man he enjoys devious schemes and complicated plots and could be described as a manic depressive - sometimes full of energy and fever dreams, at other times, full of melancholy and paranoia.
Ethrac's magics are insanely destructive, able to reduce men to pools of black slime and causing writhing maggots of dark energy to gnaw his foes apart from inside out.GHURK GLOTT
The most "blessed"
(well damn...nice catch, Ghurk...) of the Glott-Bros.
Once Ghurk was a tall fair man, even slight of build but he has been blessed by Nurgle to become a hulking monster and his mind shrunk even as his body grew. His hunger can not be satisfied but he usually follows his brothers commands.
A colossus of mutated muscle and decaying flesh, so large that Ghurek carries his brothers around his back and lay waste to any that seeks to harm them.
Oh yes, Ghurk could slay giants. Every day is a school day~
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------What we have here is, basically, the most interesting and unique LL CA can make~
The Glottkin incarnates 3 different types of Lords:- Sorcerer
Jeez, the ultimate hothouse and the perfect mashup of the LLs in the WH Trilogy~
And since there are several hints about a very possible "The End Times" future scenario, having The Glottkin as the 1st LL of Nurgle should be a must IMO
find out a nice way to implement this Terrible Trio in the game:
" There are a couple different ways CA could do it. The simplest way would be to just have all three brothers start as one model. Another way would be to make him be like Luthor Harkon. Start off with Otto Glot (footlord scythe wielding mele badass) Then he would get his mount next Ghurek Glott. Then last towards mid-end game he would get his sorcery. His brother Ethrac Glott. If CA wanted to get really crazy they could be their own Nurgle faction and have a special fusion mechanic where they would be 3 separate lords but you could fuse their armies and legendary lords together starting with Otto and Ghurek then Ethrac and you would replace their old armies with new recruitable lords."
Gutrot Spume ~ Lord of Tentacles (and no, there's not a single Hentai about him...)
If the Glott-Bros are the first thing that comes to my mind...Gutrot is surely the 2nd one
Warlord of the Dragonbone tribe and the commander of the greatest plague fleet in the north. A proud warrior whose towering arrogance often leads him into battles against overwhelming odds, Spume has risen from the ashes of former failure to reclaim his position as one of the pre-eminent warlords of his age.
An impressive warrior, enough brave to hunt down spawn, trolls and slaughterbrutes on the tundra of his homeland...and then sunk his knife into kharibdyss, sea serpent and merwyrm alike.
Though it took Spume several months of battling not only the deadly beasts of the Sea of Claws but also the elf fleets that sought to stop him and his followers.Gutrot's body is..."art"
. His left side had merged with the kraken-spawn that had taken his arm, and his entire side bristled with tentacles that writhed with a mind of their own. His gut had swollen to twice its original bulk, and his skin was the ghostly white of an undersea beast.
Alongside the Glottkin, Gutrot Spume led the Followers of Nurgle in their horrific Plague War upon the Empire of Man during the apocalyptic age known simply as the End Times~
I'm very interested to see Spume as the Nurgle's FLC LL
...even if, thanks to his lore, he could be one of the 2 starting LLs.
He can buff the Putrid Blightkings-unit and, hopefuly
, mount a Pox Maggot
Epidemus ~ The Maggot King...'cause having a magical fat toad is not enough
Let's talk about one of the greatest Daemons of Nurgle.
Epidemus, the Reckoner of Mortality, is Nurgle’s chosen Tallyman, one of the seven Proctors of Pestilence and the cataloguer of all the Plaguelord's diseases.
Like Papa Nurgle, Epidemius abhors anything that distracts from the serious matters of life and death. The only sounds that can be heard are the gooey shufflings as Nurglings heave the palanquin forwards, and the irritable scratching of the Tallyman's quill as he seeks to keep his records up to date. From his perch, Epidemius surveys the thrift and splendour of Nurgle's creations, making note of casualties and infection rates as well as secondary symptoms such as unusual colourations and odours.
Of greatest interest to Epidemius are infections and fevered behaviours afflicting determined or ambitious souls. Nurgle's cankerous plagues do not merely infest the physical form, they also run virulently rampant throughout a being's soul, destroying his sense of self and moral direction as thoroughly as they corrupt his fevered body.
... A skilled observer - and there are none more skilled than the vile Epidemius — can read this flaked and crumbled trail of soul-stuff as it departs the mortal coil, gleaning all manner of knowledge and adding a portion of the spirit’s strength to his. As an offer of thanks, Epidemius' entourage strike bells and gongs when such a soul finally succumbs, ushering the tainted spirit into Nurgle's paternal and welcoming embrace. What happens to it there, none can say — least of all Epidemius, whose interest in a subject dies along with its physical shell. Happily, there are always fresh victims to investigate...
So, bois~ what we have here is an OP version of Lord Skrolk
. A perfect candidate to be one of the 2 starter Nurgle's LLs
...even if Festus The Leechlord is a good candidate too.
Tamurkhan ~ The Maggot Lord! Jeez, is he one of the Freddy Krueger's Dream Demons?!
His real form: Sorry, not that one...this one:
Tamurkhan, known also as the Maggot Lord, the Son of the Great Kurgan, Master of Hosts, Bringer of Desolation and the Favored of Nurgle (Jeez, he pulled a Daenerys!)
, was once one of the greatest Champion of Nurgle in recent history. Numerous legends and lies have clustered about Tamurkhan long before he had gathered his great horde, and in his fulfillment of a prophecy, struck out like a poisoned talon at the wider world beyond the Chaos Wastes. Some tales speak of him to be the millennia-old scion of the Great Kurgan, one of four sons, mighty and terrible, who each set out to the four winds to conquer in the service of the four great powers of Chaos.
Others had it that he was no more than a vermin once — a corpse-canker grown fat and clever on the spoiled entrails of the battlefield, swelled up and tranfigured in the basking light of the Eternal Battle in the uttermost north. In either case he was an arrogant, savage and monstrous warlord, and a true reveler in decay and death, fated as one of Father Nurgle's most favored children for the carnage and suffering he had wreaked in his god's name. As the leader of a decaying warband of fanatical acolytes and twisted monstrosities and riding upon his mighty mount, Bubebolos the Toad Dragon
, Tamurkhan carved a bloody path for himself on the road to victory, amassing around him a great host in his master's name.
...And that's the hardest part~ 'cause Tamurkhan is one of the greatest Nurgle's Lords, with a very intersting lore and as strong as the Glottkin.
Perfect enemy for a possible future Cathay addition Should he be a Lord Pack-Lord? A starter Lord? An FLC Lord? @Pocman
did an intersting thread about him~ check it out:https://forums.totalwar.com/discussion/231877/champion-of-nurgle-tamurkhan#latest
Honorable Mention ~ The Maggot Riders
The Maggot Riders are a trio of Chaos Champions hailing from the frigid northlands of Icehorn Peak. They are so named because the three Champions are known to ride into battle ontop of three massive, maggot-like Daemon mounts called Pox Maggots. The three Champions are:
- Orghotts Daemonspew - Orghott is the Bastard King of Icehorn Peak and the leader of the Maggot Riders.
- Bloab Rotspawned - Bloab, Lord of the Daemonflies, is the emissary of Nurgle's presence within the world and the Sorcerer of the Maggot Riders.
- Morbedix is the third member of the Maggot Riders and the leader of his own horde of Nurgling followers.
I hope to see some generic Nurgle Champions7Sorcerer Lord like 'em in the game.
