Hello everyone !!

Gw spoiled some info on the rogue trader codex for 40k.

Each of the mini-codexes in the set contains a specialised Detachment for that faction, representing the forces in the Rogue Trader boxed set, complete with characters, Detachment rules and a set of Stratagems for you to use. You’ll also find points for using them in matched play.

Rather than being codexes for Rogue Traders in general or Nurgle mutants, these books have been designed to provide you with two focused, thematic allies for a larger force. Got some Death Guard? You can never have too many horrific Nurgle mutants! Need to add some aristocratic flair to your Astra Militarum? Hire the Elucidian Starstriders!

No stats on the Gpox but a description :

Having looked at the superhuman shock troops of the Plague God with the Death Guard, and the Grandfather’s supernatural servants with this year’s deluge of new Daemons, the Gellerpox Infected are your chance to build the third piece of the tri-lobe – the serried hordes of mutated mortals and swollen vermin who fight for Nurgle.

As you’d expect, the Gellerpox Infected serve Chaos, and are great allies for any Nurgle army, looking just as magnificently malignant as any Death Guard or Nurgle Daemon as well as sharing the Nurgle keyword, making them immune to any Nurgle’s Rot-related friendly fire.

In-game, the Gellerpox Infected are great at tearing apart heavy infantry with Vulgrar Thrice-Cursed and the Hullbreakers, who boast a deluge of armour-shredding, high-damage attacks. Meanwhile, your various mites, grubs, Nurglings and mutants cost a pittance in points and are great for bogging down pesky opponents or holding objectives while more valuable units get stuck in with some good old-fashioned murder.
