Until those maggots began to fall
I gaped at God to receive my gift
Bathed in maggots 'til the planet sh*t

Nurgle is the Chaos God of disease, contagion and decay. His followers wallow in a lethal miasma of filth and infection, spreading death and hideous plagues everywhere they go. Over them all, Lord Nurgle gazes lovingly, bestowing his vile "gifts" upon his favoured Champions.
