fuck, I'm autistic
Best god of chaos thread
Probably by the time their flesh starts rotting off the skin's been distented long enough it retains the shape, plus their insides have filled up with pus, nurglings and other filth.
there is something that bothers me though
I don't know much about warhammer fluff. The only thing I know comes from playing DH and having read the book of the Heresy Abridged (that awful one that replaces ollanius pius with a custodes) and I don't really understand what does Nurgle has to offer to the marines that decide to follow him
Khorne gives super strength and physical power
Tzneetch offers knowledge
Slaneesh offers pleasure
Nurgle gives eternal life with devastating side effect?
I know, it's just my autism
still, the organs are seem to be teared apart as well
Everyone is welcome in the arms of father Nurgle. The world may hate you, turn on you, insult you, hurt you, but Nurgle is there to give you a pat on the back and share his gifts with you.
Yes. It's kind of ironic: Tzeetch is the god of hope, yet uses his followers as his pawns and loves building their hopes up only to bring them crashing down. Nurgle is the god of despair but is kind and caring to his followers, even if he largely expresses that by gifting them with new and exiting diseases (although those given to his service do tend to apreciate that).
The thing is that while Tzeetch wants his followers to work and scheme to reach a goal, even if they inevitably fall, Nurgle is all about stagnation and decay. There's no point in trying to better your lot in life; just wallow in apathy and despair and let Papa Nurge take care of everything.
Khorne is the guy who invites you over to watch sports, and you go so you don't piss him off, and he gives you surprisingly sound advice for exercise.
Nurgle is the guy who invites you to everything, but doesn't expect you to show up, but whether you do or don't he smiles and takes it anyway. He's also a great cook, and knows way more about medicine than he should.
Tzeench is that guy who doesn't invite you, but he already knew you were coming anyway. He's also that asshole who can tell you any trivial fact about anything, literally anything, but he also has plenty of books, manuals, and guides in case you need them for anything, and he's perfectly willing to let you borrow them.
Slaanesh is that guy who never grew out of the partying stage of college and invites you over but is too shitfaced and high to remember. He's also a she, so there's that. Free drugs and sex, smells like the seventies in his apartment yet is always blasting rave music.
Malal is that fuck who is watching you right now, hoping you'll kill yourself. He also has been sending you spam email for the last decade and keeps hurting himself.
I study forensic medicine, just this morning I witnessed an autopsy
the putrefaction process has four phases: cromatic (gets the distinctive color) emphysematose (gets bloted with gas, stomach is like a drum) liquify (tissues break, gas scape, starts to turn into shit) and skeletal reduction
Fuck, none of that translates properly into english...
>not knowing of grandfather nurgle's love and compassion.
Khorne's too one dimensional. Every other Chaos God has deeper options. Khorne meanwhile is just a mindless god of slaughter. There's not even a point in worshiping him unless you're retarded.
In the case of the Death Guard I believe the choice was made for them when Typhus fucked them over by giving them wrong directions.
Not only that, you usually fall to Nurgle worship after you've been afflicted with something and you're crying out for relief.
Didn't Khorne have some minute amount of depth in the past and disapprove of killing the weak and the defenseless because you weren't truly testing yourself in battle by doing so?
so I was reading the imperial armour book The lost and the damned, it says that I can field plague zombies, max unit size is 50 for 150 points all with it will not die 4+. I do like the idea of making an nurgle swarm army with the walking dead/it will not die feel but I'm worried fielding these zombies will just piss people as I slow the game down. tell me /tg/ is it a good idea or am I just a dick?
>Nurgle is the god of despair but is kind and caring to his followers
No he isn't. That's a facade.
He takes particular delight in forcing his gifts on followers even when they don't want them. Revelling in their continued suffering, rather than doing anything to truly help them. The familial love the followers of nurgle show is a hollow one, as a result of their shared ailments. Misery loves company, as the saying goes.
>Nurgle daemonettes, man.
>And take your deamonette with you. She ain't nice at all.
>Khorne's too one dimensional. Every other Chaos God has deeper options. Khorne meanwhile is just a mindless god of slaughter. There's not even a point in worshiping him unless you're retarded.
Well you could go with them being the God of Merit/Honor, but most of the time you're going to get yelled at for fanon misinterpretation.
>shes all that and a can of pringles!!
Pringles, FUCK YEAH!
I wonder if that Anon is still having nightmares.
Not quite. Nurgle is an abusive relationship, moreso than other Chaos Gods.
You don't want your head to spout fungal growths that cover your eyes and blind you forever? Tough shit, guess who will never see the sunrise again? When you wake up in the morning, Nurgle will have a lovely little sadistic Nurgling sat on your shoulder, he'll shout out when you're about to bump into something. Your only hope of ever living some semblance of a normal life. You're stuck with Nurgle now, at least most other gods will kill you when they're done with you.
>somebody's fetish too
I'm the personification of my fetishes...
...Hence why pic related freaked even me out; All that flesh chewing...
Why would the Norse worship the god of entropy? Seems to conflict with their entire lifestyle.
Nurgle's love is an abusive parent who thinks it's "doing what's best" when it's really just destroying your life. You're too fucked up by the abuse to realize it either. At least Khorne is going to be forward when he's fucking your life up. Also, all his "gifts" are actual gifts.
The way I see it, people who willingly embrace nurgle are what you would call "fun police on steroids". They think that the world sucks, everything's slowly turning to shit, and everyone who doesn't realise it are dumb ingrates. So they go nurgle to hasten the process, and show up to those chucklefucks the truth about despair, hurr durr.
Others don't try to get into serving plague god intently, but some events in their life bring them into the mindset, and when they stumble upon opportunity to join the plague club, they just go with the flow without resisting, they just don't care.
And others, like original Death Guard, have basically went through mindbreak - they caught Space AIDS, and now spread the love.
>crossover between Nurgle and Slaanesh
Pleasure and Life. I suppose you could make an argument that the spreading of disease, parasites, impregnation.
Wouldn't be surprised if there was a cult to it.
Or the dualism of pleasure and suffering.
An extremely hedonistic self-destructive cult, that revels in both their excesses and the suffering that comes when they destroy themselves.
They could view it as a model of the life as a whole. A creature's life cycle consists of two phases:
- "Growth" - epitomed in joy, revel and pleasure , as much as possible and as strong as possible, here and now.
- "Decay" - after the creature reaches the climax of it's life, it can only go downhill, wither and die.
So this is what they do - revel in endless orgy and bring others into it specifically to destroy themselves and others in the process.
