    Newbie question about Chaos Icons

    I was talking to a GW staffer last week and found out the the Mark of Nurgle increases their toughness by 1, but I couldn't find where that specific information was located in the Chaos Codex. I wondering if someone could point to where in the codex I could find all the icon powers are located (page and paragraph) and how the powers translate into game mechanics?

    Thanks in advance.

    The nurgle one is expensive, but it makes a HUGE difference in terms of game mechanics.
    So many thing rely on rolling 3s or 4s to wound.

    When you push that up to 4s or 5s or even 6s it really helps protect your men.

    In short, apart from against specific weapons, they just don't die.

    You take a squad of chosen, give them the icon of nurgle, and infiltrate them into hard cover.. and that's one nasty squad to try and get out. The points needed and the amount of attention the needed to defeat that squad is probably many times the cost of the squad itself, and allows your other forces a bit of leway.
