The Fall of Heldenhame was a battle during the End Times. [1a]

Arkhan the Black and Mannfred von Carstein advanced on the fortress seeking to retrieve the armour of Nagash, Morikhane from its vaults. Neither had the time for a long siege and so despite the formidable defences they determined to assault the castle immediately. [1a]

The ancient servant of Nagash summoned a battery of catapults and unleashed them on the weakened west wall, drawing the attention of the defenders. The cannons of the Rostmeyer bastion returned fire and although they began destroying the enemy siege engines, Arkhan quickly restored them, again and again. As they exchanged fire, Regiments of skeleton warriors advanced into handgun range. [1a]

The Knights of Sigmar's Blood rode out through the south gate, determined to bring their lances to bear on the besiegers. The dead, despite the constant fire of the defenders, began to climb the walls of the Rostmeyer and Sigmundas bastions. Helblasters let fly and shattered the attack on the Rotmeyer bastion but the Sigmundas bastion began to be overwhelmed. [1a]

Father Odkrier came to the aid of the beleagured bastion, a beacon of faith and fury which roused the men of Talabecland until he was in turn plucked from its walls and torn apart. [1a]

Reiforcements led by Captain Volker were too late and a wave of magical missiles now struck the wall, shattering it finally and making a breach that the hordes of the dead could enter through. [1a]

Led by Hans Leitdorf, the vast majority of the Knights of Sigmar's Blood had ridden forth, nearly twelve hundred cavalry and these now charged into the legions of skeletons. Skilfully Leitdorf charged and reformed again and again, whislt sending two brotherhoods to finally silence the catapults. [1a]

However, even as they were shattering the risen dead, Vargheists attacked the fortress from the air, tearing at the garrison until they were hunted down and overwhelmed with weight of numbers and steel. They were followed by the ghosts of ancient warlocks and witches, but they were countered by the blessed weapons. [1a]

Finally Mannfred arrived flanked by a pair of Terrorgheists and dropped into the castle courtyard. The Seneschal of the castle went to meet hm with a handful of knights, driving back and then destroying one great monster. Rudolph Weskar charged the Vampire Lord but he was proved to be no threat, Mannfred taking off his head with his first swing and cleaving two knights with his second. [1a]

Nothing now stood between the vampire and the vaults. [1a]
