Got my copy of Throne of Chaos today at Gamesday UK. Won't give too much away but I will give you this little snippet
15 point upgrade for Knights with Mark of Nurgle: Rot Beast
Replaces Chaos Steed with Rot Beast to become monstrous cavalry. Rot Beast has the following profile:
M7 WS2 BS0 S4 T4 W2 I2 A2 Ld8
The unit gains regenerate 5+
This is awesome!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't mounted guys get the higher of the two wound stats when mounted on monstrous beasts? That would be... monstrous

Ws2? Not that great

Are the Rot Beast the Frog things FW did? Eh, they're ok models but they won't fit into any army have at the moment......... at the moment. Not many people are fond of FW rules though.
The rules look good however, giving a Knight +1 Wounds and a 5+ Regen is pretty sweet! Although I'm guessing you have to take the MoN first right?.....
Yes MoN first!
No, the things you're thinking of are the plague toads. The rot beast is what the hero "Kayzk the Befouled" rides - basically gross looking monster steeds.
WS isn't great I grant you but that's not the beauty of it. The amazing thing is doubling the knight's wounds and granting regenerate.
So essentially the upgrade is:
1 point of armour (no barding), WS from mount (although with fear WS2 isn't necessarily terrible)
1 wound, regen 5+, extra mount attack, stomp, monstrous ranks
Imagine a unit of these with banner of rage - that's six attack plus a stomp per model for only 55 points.

sounds great! finally characters on juggernauts can get a "lookout sir" as there are currently no "MC" units in the WoC armies except the juggernaut mount, meaning no khorne heroes/lord on a juggernaut get a "lookout sir" when the enemy decies to throw a cannonball at him ><
