Idoneth Deepkin: Writer Insights – The Lore

The Idoneth Deepkin have some of the richest and most complex lore of any Warhammer Age of Sigmar faction. On the surface, these aelves fight for Order, like their predecessors – but dive deeper, and you’ll find a long and tragic history that gives them a unique identity of their own. The Idoneth Deepkin are more than just an army – they’re a culture with their own way of life beyond of the battlefield.

From insights into just what Teclis is up to, to plot threads that hint at what’s to come after Malign Portents, to the opportunity to explore a well-realised culture from the hidden places of the Mortal Realms, the new battletome is great for narrative fans – we caught up with the people that wrote it to find out more…

Cunning fans might have noticed one of the juiciest lore entries already – the coming of the Shyish Necroquake…


That’s right – whatever Nagash has planned, it’s happening, and the cities of Order are in trouble. Only time will tell exactly what the Necroquake means, but it doesn’t look like good news…

Read the lore of the Idoneth Deepkin for yourself – pre-order the new battletome here.
