Cover Description

It is a time of legends. The lands of the old World are wild and untamed, where the primitive tribes of men struggle for survival. In this time of peril, by virtue of his valorous deeds, a young man claims leadership of the Unberogen tribe. His name is Sigmar Heldenhammer, and his actions will change history forever. This is the story of how Sigmar rose to power, culminating in the Battle of Black Fire Pass, where men and dwarfs fought against the vast hordes of orcs in their quest to safeguard the future of the Empire.


When the sun rests. And the world is dark. And the great fires are lit. And the ale is poured into flagons. Then is the time to sing sagas as dwarfs do. And the greatest of sagas. Is the saga of Sigmar, mighiest warrior. Harken now, hear these words. And live in hope
