2016 Top Five – Warhammer Age of Sigmar
Your Mortal Realms Roundup
The last 12 months have been busy in the Mortal Realms; we’ve seen the climax of the Realmgate Wars, the rise of new races and the timeline move forward as we enter a new era in the Age of Sigmar….
Here’s a top 5 (because we love top 5’s)
5) The Fyreslayers Arrive
The children of Grimnir emerged in the Mortal Realms – a race of Duardin from the Realm of Fire who fight with the fury of their fiery ancestral deity. These warriors made their mark in the Realmgate Wars, joining the forces of Sigmar to help drive back the dominion of Chaos.
4) The Extremis Chamber Opens
Sigmar unleashed the Dracoths and Stardrakes of the Extremis Chamber upon the Realms.
Great warriors atop celestial behemoths led the attack on the forces of Chaos and claimed many victories, even battling the Everchosen himself – though against the Herald of the Apocalypse, even these heroes were not enough.
3) The Waaagh! Descends
Gordrakk, the Fist of Gork made his debut in the Mortal Realms at the head of an army of the biggest orruks anyone had ever seen.
The rest of the forces of Destruction were far from content to sit on the sidelines while Order and Chaos duked it out, and we saw the Bonseplitterz and Beastclaw Raiders arrive later in the year to join the Waaagh! as well.
2) The Season of Life
A goddess was reborn in the Realm of Life this year, as Alarielle took on her war aspect and drove the forces of Nurgle from great swathes of the Jade Kingdoms from the head of a vengeful army of Sylvaneth.
1) The Chaos Pantheon in flux…
So, as we approach the end of the year, the forces of Nurgle have been beaten back in Ghyran, and many of Khorne’s great armies have been routed in the Realm of Fire. It is only a matter of time before a new contender makes a play for dominance of the Mortal and Chaos realms…
Silver Towers rise across the lands, dark cults flourish in the newly founded cities of Order and plans laid centuries past come to fruition.
