I played a game on the weekend against a bug player.
I had a Nurgle sorcerer leading some Plague Marines and undivided troops. Looking across the board I felt horribly outnumbered and wondered whether I had enough marines to do the job. My Nurgle Sorcerer got into a fight with 20 odd gaunts and with Nurgle's rot managed to kill 11 of them. The next round he wiped out the rest and proceeded onto another unit of guants and wiped them out single handedly.
In the game he accounted for 40 gaunts personally and I was stunned with the sheer ability of those strength 3 attacks to kill horde troops.
I think that this Power gets overlooked a lot due to the attractiveness of Warptime but I have a new MVP.
Have any of you other nurgle players had any success with Nurgles Rot?

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.
As you said, Nurgle's Rot is unbelievable against swarm armies; not so good against MEQ's. However, against 10 marines, it should still yield a single kill, which isn't quite as good as 3rd edition, once you consider the cost hike. In my opinion, G.W. made Nurgle's Rot the way it should have been done in the first place.
