Blightwar (2017), p29 — Nurgle Battle Traits

Armies with the Nurgle allegiance have the following ability:

Cycle of Corruption: When Nurgle's armies march across the realms, they bring with them a cycle of decay and fecundity. At the start of any battle that includes a Nurgle army, a dice must be rolled. Refer to the table opposite to see which stage of the Cycle of Corruption is currently taking place - this applies to all Nurgle armies. The Cycle of Corruption moves clockwise one step at the start of each new battle round. For example, if the roll on the Cycle of Corruption table was a 5, then Nauseous Revulsion would apply in the first battle round, Rampant Disease in the second, Corruption Regrowth in the third, and so on. The rule for the current stage applies for the duration of the battle round.
