    Korgle word bearers

    Well after some thought I am making a word bearers army with nurgle and khorne troops to top it off.

    Well after more thought I don't know how to put this into fluff and I am wondering if this would be a good idea.

    I don't see why you couldn't do it. With the new dex you can pretty much do anything you want. THe word bearers are known for praising the gods as a whole so you could say that the berserkers and plague marines share that similar interest of praising their gods among the word bearers.

    Hear are some reasons Khorne or Nurgle marines might be following a Dark Apostle:

    1. They are seperated from their fleet and have dicided to continue spreading death and destruction through any means possible, even under a new commander

    2. They have become spellbound by the Dark Apostles preaching, and throwing off their previous alliances to their Dark God, they now follow the Word Bearers.

    3. Their patron god has come to the Aspiring Champion in a vision and told them that their will is that they go with the Word Bearers to complete some task.

    ... and so on and so forth.

    And if you are just using icons on troops, and not specifically Plague Marines or Berserkers, you can come up with a Word Bearers-ish reason the unit has the extra attack or toughness. Maybe the marines are particularly zealous or that Dark Apostle is praying really hard!

    The good thing about chaos fluff is that it's pretty much possible to justify whatever combinations of Marks, troops, hqs, etc you want.

    Heck, you can easily say that a chaos lord or prince subverts both the zerkers and the plague marines to his side by sheer force. That's believable.

    The old "join us or die" approach.

    The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
