Epidemius, Tallyman of Nurgle

Epidemius, Tallyman of Nurgle, The Plagued Panjandrum, Reckoner of Mortality[2a] is a Daemonic Herald of Nurgle who is the cataloguer of all the Plaguelord's diseases.

Epidemius is one of the seven (seven being the sacred number of Nurgle) Proctors of Pestilence and and the chosen Tallyman of Nurgle, whose work is to record all the diseases of father Nurgle. Epidemius' task is an unending one, which generates a large amount of scripture, so he rides a Palanquin of Nurgle to share the burden - and to more easily force a path through Nurgle's hordes and enemies alike. [1a]

He travels through both the mortal world and the Realm of Chaos, studying plagues and the ebb and flow of disease. Whenever a soul he is observing dies, ushering it into the paternal and welcoming embrace of Nurgle, his entourage strike gongs and bells. [1a] He is attended by two dozen Nurglings who excrete the ink, operate the Death's Head abacus and provde the parchment as well as defending their master from harm. [4a]


His work was disturbed by news that Lord Bileflood, a Great Unclean One had been summoned and imprisoned - honouring an old debt he mustered an army to free his fellow daemon. He and his Daemons arrived in Middenland via a toppled waystone where they were confronted by a High Elf force from a nearby colony led by Lord Sirion. [3a]

Fighting through the elves, the Daemons then breeched the Skaven lair, disrupting the priests ritual of Pestilent Distillation and freeing the Greater Daemon. They then marched on the town of Elsterweld. [3b]


He is a potent spellcaster using Nurgle's lore and is able to increase the power of himself and other Nurgle Daemons when his patron gods enemies fall in battle.[1a][2a]
