Fyreslayers

From Warhammer - Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search
Fyreslayer warriors charging into battle against daemons of Khorne.

The Fyreslayers are flame-bearded Duardin mercenaries that worshipped Grimnir. They were one of the forces that rose up to battle after the first strikes of the Stormcast Eternals in Realm of Fire. They fought against Chaos but only if paid in Ur-Gold, however if a generous enough counter-offer was made they would willingly fight alongside the forces of chaos.[1] All Fyreslayers can sense the presence of this metal to some degree, but only the Auric Runesmasters can trial it across the Mortal Realms.[5] When a Fyreslayer swears an oath it is an unbreakable bond and will fight as if they were part of the payer's army, but they except the same level of commitment from those that retain their services. Those that break such promises are not expected to live long enough to regret it.[3a]

These fierce warriors are the scions of the fallen duardin god Grimnir. They style themselves in his image in devotion and deference to him, going to battle wearing almost nothing, their hair waxed and dyed into elaborate mohawks and wielding magma-forged blades. Other races think that they only fight to hoard gold in their vast volcanic lairs, a rumour that they are happy to have disseminated. What they truly seek is Ur-Gold the remains of their god.[4]

The rune of fire is one of the most sacred runes of the Fyreslayers.[5]

Magmadroths are fire-belching salamanders with scorching talons are the mounts of the Auric Runesons, Runefathers and Runesmiters.[2e][2f][2g]
