Mortis Medium – The Greater Demon of Nurgle: Scraping the mould from White Dwarf 109

Tucked away in the time-stained pages of the White Dwarf that can't stop giving is a brief (and no doubt poisonous) taster from the second volume of Realm of Chaos: The Lost and The Damned, a much-sought after tome which concerned itself with the second pair of the great powers of Chaos: Tzeentch and Nurgle. …

The Bilious Vomitings of an Infectious Hobby – Now with added Vomit.

In an offshoot of the tunnels beneath the Lead Mountain, there is a place where the walls drip with mucus, flies buzz, and corpulent little daemons chitter and giggle in the darkness. Here, it is Grandfather Nurgle who holds court. Long days past, the suppurating hordes of the Plague God would shamble out across the …
