Free Peoples are the armies of humans that are reconquering the Mortal Realms.
After losing their kingdoms, continents and lands during the Age of Chaos, the Free People took refuge in Azyr, gathering in Azyrheim and Sigmaron. There they made a new home, uniting in Sigmar's name to preserve their heraldry and cultural traditions, awaiting for the time when they can return to the Mortal Realms as conquerors and enact bloody revenge upon the forces of Chaos.
After the Stormcast Eternals have retaken the lands and the Devoted of Sigmar have purged it from the taint of chaos, the Free People follow after them raising fortresses and settlements in the Realms once more. In these new lands they quickly learn the ways of war.
They are led by martial city lords and the ranks are filled out by the Freeguilds. Each Freeguild is the remnant of an ancient tribe, proudly bearing their heraldry into battle.
