DESCRIPTION
The heroes and legends of the World That Was underpin the myths of the Age of Sigmar. Now you can experience many of those legends and read the tales of some of those heroes in a phenomenal bundle. Their deeds are legend. These are their stories.

The Legend of Sigmar by Graham McNeill
Sigmar is the greatest leader of men the world has ever known. By saving the high king of the dwarfs, he earned the eternal friendship of the mountain folk. When a mighty horde of orcs threatened his lands, he united the tribes of men to stand against them at Black Fire Pass. He broke the siege of Middenheim and pushed back the forces of Chaos. In defeating the great necromancer Nagash, he saved mankind and secured the future of his empire.

The Rise of Nagash by Mike Lee
Nagash was the first necromancer and the supreme lord of undeath. He wrested the secrets of dark magic from the elves and perverted them to suit his ends. When the priest-kings of Nehekhara stood united against him, he broke their armies and sacked their cities. He raised the largest army of the dead the world has ever known and became an immortal dark god.

The Sundering by Gav Thorpe
Malekith, betrayer and usurper, architect of the great war that will divide the race of elves. Alith Anar, wrathful avenger whose spirit will forever haunt the traitorous druchii. Caledor, reluctant leader, the one elf who can hold back the darkness and restore peace to Ulthuan. Witch King, Shadow King and Phoenix King.

The Black Plague by C L Werner
The Empire conceived by Sigmar has stood for more than a thousand years, but now it rests on the edge of destruction. As war and disease sweep across Sigmar’s realm, a hero rises in the north and begins to embrace his destiny as the future leader of a united Empire – if he can survive the trials to come.

War of Vengeance by Nick Kyme, Chris Wraight & C L Werner
The War of Vengeance, or War of the Beard, was a great and terrible conflict between the elves and dwarfs for the domination of the Old World. This bitter struggle left both races forever diminished and forged an enmity that would endure until the world’s ending…

 

The Old World may be gone but the legends live on!

      Would you believe me if I told you I actually have nightmares about the doom of the Old World?

      • euansmith

        Don’t fret, “Age of Sigmar” is actually just a morality tale acted out by the Guilds of Middenheim.

        It started out as a scary tale about Nagash ending the world, designed to loosen folks’ purse strings to raise funds for the orphanage.

        However, after a few years, people started getting bored with that tale, and so the director started mixing things up to keep the donations rolling in.

        So now it startes…

        “Now this is a saga, all about how,
        The Olde Worlde got flipped, turned upside down,
        And I’d like to take a minute just sit right there,
        I’ll tell you how I became an Eternal in a town called Azyr.

        In West Middenland, born and raised,
        In the Guildhall where I spent most of my days,
        Wheeling and dealing and setting out my stall,
        And all shooting some cultists outside of the wall,

        When a guy called Nagash, who was up to no good,
        Started making trouble in my neighborhood
        I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
        And said you’re moving with your Uncle Sigmar in Azyr.”

        • D. B.

          You should write background for WHFB. This historical silliness is just what I miss about AoS. I’d probably be a lot more comfortable with the game if it took itself less seriously. I very much like it, but it’s a tougher sell than WHFB was.

          • euansmith

            It seems to be a common trend with popular culture; that eventually the young fans grow up and replace the old authors writing the stories. The youngsters might not have caught on to the irony and humour originally written in to the setting and, instead, take the setting at face value. I suspect that there are people at GW who don’t realise that the Space Marines are the villains and who failed to realise that what made WFB cool was the very fact that is wasn’t really very heroic. Or maybe it is just that I am old and like to shake my fist and bloody kids!

          • D. B.

            With characters like Garro and Tu’Shan, I don’t really see all Space Marines as baddies – but 40k has IMO stayed truer to its old self, insofar as there are very few truly “good” characters.

          • Dennis J. Pechavar

            I’ve caught myself saying, “back in my day”. I’m not worried yet as I have yet to say the dreaded, “get off my yard”.

            “Ah ‘member when this wuz all random D100 charts as far as th’ eye could see.”

            “And Zoats! Dem Zoats! Those now, those were proper aliens… not those squishy blue weeaboo wannabe commies”

    these stories in this world/fantasy setting appeal to me, cant say the same for…eh…age of…..feck it, whats the point.
