Here you’ll find complete rules for warriors, heroes and monsters from the world-that-was, alongside a brief summary of their background and play style.

Every Citadel miniature is great, a unique piece of the ever-evolving narrative of Warhammer. It is, then, an unfortunate truth that we can’t continue to sell and support every model we’ve ever made, indefinitely. As we make new models, and new books to explore their background and rules, we have to stop producing and featuring some older models. But just like many of you, we still treasure our collections of older Citadel miniatures, and we still want to be able to use them in games and forge glorious narratives on the tabletop! This is where Warhammer Legends comes in. Warhammer Legends is a great home for these miniatures, giving us somewhere to publish rules to allow you to keep playing with your older miniatures.

The rules presented here are designed to be definitive, and will only be updated when we change the core mechanics of Warhammer Age of Sigmar. This means that Legends units are not designed for matched play (as they won’t, for example, have yearly points updates).

As Warhammer Age of Sigmar continues to grow and evolve, it will give rise to all-new heroes and factions. Others may be consumed by battle, slain and themselves be consigned to Legend. On these occasions, we’ll update this page to make sure that from here on out, all the models in your collection can always be used with the current ruleset.

    In the Background
    The Dark Elves ruled the cold lands of Naggaroth with arrogance and cruelty. If you got a kick out of collecting the most depraved army that the world-that-was had to offer, then you need look no further than the Daughters of Khaine, who now reign over the Realm of Shadow in the Age of Sigmar.

    In the Game
    The Dark Elf way of war was efficient and merciless, and defined by disciplined phalanxes of infantry, backed up by exotic and grotesque monsters and heavy shock-cavalry. This elite, flexible force was rewarding for a skilled and ruthless player. If you want to command a force like this in Warhammer Age of Sigmar then the Idoneth Deepkin, soul-bound descendants of the Druchii, are the army for you.
