The goblin chieftain Skarsnik’s name is known and feared throughout the Old World. When a greenskin horde threatens the borders of the Empire, the greatest military minds in Altdorf seek assistance from a most unlikely source – the disgraced poet Jeremiah Bickenstadt. Though long since consumed by madness, he claims to have spent a great deal of time in the company of the feared Warlord of the Eight Peaks, and can offer a unique insight into what it is that drives and motivates him. From humble beginnings, a monstrous legend is born.

Grimnar Halfhand, survivor of a massacre at the dwarf watchpost of Karag Durak, wants revenge on the fiend who killed his warriors and took his hand.
In the depths of the Drakwald forest, a group of mercenaries gather around the fire, drinking to ward off the chill of the night, but more than cold is waiting for them in the darkness.
Warlord Queek Headtaker is unlike other skaven, a fearless warrior, a general who leads from the front and the grim victor of many great battles.
