Free Peoples

From Warhammer - Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Free Peoples are the armies of humans, duardin aelves and other races 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.[1][2][3]


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.[1]

The Freeguilds

The Cities of Sigmar are defended by many different forces such as the Stormcast Eternals, the Ironweld Arsenal and the Collegiate Arcane but much fighting and sacrifice falls to the mere mortals of the many Freeguild Regiments. All such regiments were originally created from twelve tribes that fought alongside Sigmar in the Age of Chaos and followed him when he retreated to the Realm of Azyr where they retained their training, skills and discipline.[5e]

However as the reclamation of the Mortal Realms progressed more and more regiments were created from those cultures that had survived the onslaught of Chaos - although tensions often run high between the original Azyrites and the Reclaimed. All free cities have several Freeguilds, organised into regiments for battle and acting as city watchmen in times of peace. Each are different and have their own customs, cultures, colours and traditions differing greatly from Realm to Realm and city to city. [5e]

Known Regiments


Some of the Freeguild heraldry known are:

  • Crowned Skull of Penumbra[1]
  • Sanguine Lady of Flames[1]
  • Stonehearted Blood Bull[1]
