    That's not really Nurgles style. The entire faction is centered around the idea that the cycle of life and death brings some happiness and joy to those who embrace it. It's weirdly positive for a Chaos God, but most of these creatures are blissfully unaware of the havoc theyre wreaking, or how their blight-ridden appearance and pestilence affects others. They wanna play and frolick with you, and if you drop dead theyll quickly find a new plaything to have fun with, while your body becomes the nurturing ground for other forms of life. Maggots, insects, and even bacteria are all alive, after all, and from death sprouts new life.

    So basically they're having a lot of fun while murdering the shit out of you, and not because of the pain they're causing.

    So Slaanesh gets the shitty DE Murderous Prowess mechanic?
    It's so bad in WH2 because the time it procs, in most cases, the battle is already decided.

    Man, they really are scraping the bottom of the barrel with factions by now. China and Russia are about as boring as it can get.

    What is missing?

    - Dogs of War
    - Ogre Kingdoms
    - Chaos Dwarfs

    After that, they have to start making up army books. Nippon? *vomits*

    And the fact that they said no to Araby because it was too stereotypical... r00fles!

    Yea, they would offend Blacks and Muslims. They can't do that.

    Jokes aside, I think they will break down Dogs of War into a proper mercenary faction + regional powers. Tilea region and the Border Princes are just Empire-lite, nothing stops them from drawing inspiration from past Total Wars, I'd love to field some Genoese-style crossbowmen with pavise shields. I mean, once the world is completely filled up, there's only fleshing out the less important regions. I'm not an expert in WH lore but iirc those areas have distinct cultures and their own armies. Maybe a proper inquisition DLC within the Empire? Dunno how feasible that would be but the Empire itself could def use a bit more love.

    Saying no to Araby is definitely moronic tho.

    Could do Ind too. Also there are mention of chaos-worshipping snakemen near Cathay in Kuresh, so that could be the basis of a faction, like they did with Vampire Coast

    CA just showed Skarbrand's faction effects:

    Some kind of nagash faction that's a mix of tomb kings and vc?
    Amazons, nippon and ind would also not be that surprising.

    Nippon was the most boring thing ever, there literally is nothing that is even mildly interesting. Temple dogs are probably the most "unique" unit they have.

    Not to mention the fact that it doesn't fit the setting either:

    Doesn't Arkhan has like only 3 or 4 vampire units?
    Nagash's supposed to be a big deal (both in the lore and on the tabletop), commanding both vampires and tomb kings, so CA could give him a little more than that

    For Nippon, the CA would have to re write most of the existing lore, but doing FANTASY! Japan (just like the Empire is Fantasy HRE) could be interesting if it's distinct enough from existing factions

    Nagash is a big deal but only because Games Workshop say that. He's indescribably boring in the book trilogy (he's ok in the first one while learning necromancy, but goes downhill from there very fast). Neferata and Arkhan are better characters than he ever was.

    That's par for the course for hybrid factions, unfortunately. Aranessa's living pirate units aren't very good, Alarielle's tree-man units aren't very well supported and, yeah, Nagash's vampire units aren't very comprehensive. They could all do with a facelift.

    Nagash himself could be a legendary hero like Ariel but then again so could Orion and a bunch of other Actual Gods that are mere Legendary Lords.

    Those are great. And their Persian/Mesopotamian/whatever aesthetic sets them apart from other evil dwarf races in other fantasy settings.
