The Nurgle Rotbringers are the mortal worshippers of Papa Nurgle in Age of Sigmar. They are, expectedly, a load of fat bastards that take way too much joy in spreading Nurgle's diseases. They tend to come in the form of Putrid Blightkings, though other assorted Nurglites tend to get mixed up in their Warbands too.
Rotbringers first started to pop up just before the Age of Chaos, when Nurgle forced himself onto the Mortal Realms, particularly Ghyran and Shyish (since his thing is life and death, and since Isha is gone Alarielle is the next best thing). Whilst they did OK in Shyish, they did disturbingly well in Ghyran, as they nearly managed to take over the entire realm (with some help from Clan Pestilens) before Siggy-Diggy unleashed the Stormcast Eternals, who promptly teamed up with the Sylvaneth to beat them both back like an overly belligerent germaphobe. Since then, Papa Nurgz had decided to distribute his forces more equally across the realms deciding they all deserve his love equally.
