Encrusted with filth, a Plaguebringer carries a deadly contagion that can fell even the toughest foe. A model with a Plaguebringer has Poisoned Attacks that wound on a 4+ (see the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook).

Plaguebringer — 35 Points

The hooked blade Plaguebringer once bore the souls of a trio of Beasts of Nurgle. Once the sword sprayed the virulent, infected spittle of these overexcitable Daemons with every swing. However, those entities were trapped so long in the rusted artefact's confines that their lethally potent enthusiasm has drained away, replaced with something even worse. After a long period of sulking, the blade's inhabitants became something else entirely; it now contains the malignant souls of three Rot Flies that take every chance to inflict a terrible wasting disease on those around them.
