At the heart of Warhammer Age of Sigmar is an ongoing epic narrative about armies vying for conquest of the Mortal Realms. Here, you’ll find out about the factions, realms, and key events from the Age of Sigmar that will catch you up on the story so far.
The forces of Order are the Mortal Realms’ shield against Chaos. Alongside defenders of law like Sigmar’s Stormcast Eternals, exotic factions such as the mysterious Seraphon and the aelven Lumineth Realm-lords form powerful alliances, often for their own mysterious reasons.
Lightning-forged Heroes of the Heavens
Mighty warriors with celestial power crackling in their veins, Stormcast Eternals are forged from the souls of heroes plucked from the realms at their time of death and reforged by arcane magic. They couple hard-hitting weaponry with near-impenetrable defences, and are a fantastic all-round force.
The Mortal Warriors Who Defend the Realms
The Cities of Sigmar are populated by humans, duardin, and aelves who band together against the many threats that plague the Mortal Realms. Their massive array of heroes, units, war machines and monsters can be customised to suit any play style.
Wise Aelves Who Embrace the Elements
Aelves who glow with the light of Hysh, the Lumineth Realm-lords are masters of art, magic, philosophy, and war. On the battlefield, they harness the power of the elements and the magic of the realms to devastate their enemies with swift, overwhelming assaults.
Mysterious Forest-spirits Who Strike Without Mercy
Sprouted from soulpods planted in places rich with life magic, the Sylvaneth take up sword and bow to defend the Jade Kingdoms. An army of Sylvaneth consists of hordes of forest spirits, from Dryads to towering Treekin, which overwhelm their enemies with magic and blade.
Ferocious Lizards Who Seek to Destroy Chaos
Creatures of celestial energy given reptilian form, the Seraphon are devoted to the obliteration of Chaos. Masters of magic, they combine legions of cold-blooded killers, rampaging monsters, and mystic arts into deadly armies that can appear as if from from nowhere to suddenly overwhelm foes.
High-flying Duardin in Search of Aether-gold
The Kharadron Overlords strike from the air in swift skyvessels bedecked with deadly weapons. The armoured duardin devastate their enemies with gun and blade alike. Between the technological marvels of their skyvessels and heavily armoured troops, Kharadron Overlords suit a long-ranged, fast-paced play style.
Blood-soaked Zealots Who Live For Battle
The Daughters of Khaine are a religious order of aelves from the Realm of Shadow. They live for the thrill of war and spilt blood. Led by the goddess Morathi-Khaine, their cults revel in slaughter. The more blood they spill, the more dangerous they become.
Flame-wreathed Duardin Mercenaries
Fyreslayers are duardin sellswords who go to war clad in magical runes and fiery conviction. Known for their incandescent temper, they make valuable allies – for the right price. With a mixture of powerful heroes, durable units and mighty monsters, Fyreslayers are formidable foes.
Soul-hunting Aelves From Beneath the Waves
When need arises, the three castes of the Idoneth Deepkin unite to capture the souls they need to survive, striking their prey quickly with agile footsoldiers and fierce oceanic beasts. They attack with the force of an unstoppable tide before suddenly receding into the mists.
