Blood Bowl 2 is the sequel to Blood Bowl, a game that combines the many races of the Warhammer universe with American football. Today, we get a new race on the field called the Nurgle Team.
The Nurgle Team will definitely be familiar to who have some insight into the lore of the Warhammer universe, but for those of you who don’t, the team will probably be a (un)pleasant surprise. They are mostly known for their brutal stench and the dumb, but incredibly strong Beast of Nurgle.
The Nurgle team is a class of a Chaos team, but these players worship the god known as Nurgle, the Chaos god of corruption and disease. His gift to his worshipers is a rather unpleasant disease known as “Nurgle’s Rot”, which should give you an idea why they smell so bad. If by some chance someone gets in range to take a proper sniff of the stench, they’ll catch one or two of Nurgle’s noxious diseases which usually end up killing the person in question before they can do much.
Taking on opponents directly is how all Chaos teams work, and the Nurgle team is no exception. But, what the Nurgle team has in monstrous strength toughness, they lack in quickness and coordination. Nurgle Warriors are strong and sturdy, but their Agility value and Move rate are horrendous, so they don’t really make for decent ball bearers at all. The main thing that needs to be utilized with the Nurgle team is their might and their fortitude, as they really aren’t the team if you’re looking for speed and agility!
