Harald Hammerstorm.

Harald Hammerstorm is a Chaos Champion who spent years roaming the Chaos Wastes slaughtering any enemies he could find.

History

He is a legend among the Norse and Kurgan, known as one of the greatest fighters in the northern lands , he became famous when he killed the demon Mathrag Hirnquetscher, in the battle of Khorsvold , striking its head from its shoulders with a single blow of his war hammer . He is known also as the eternal nemesis of the undead. Tales are told of how he arrived on a freezing Midwinter day, with his tribe of warriors in the middle of the chaos waste ruins of Vorshgar, and slew every undead being within single-handedly. Since that day, he has had a particular hatred for the living dead. Harald is absolutely fearless, and his hammer is a powerful artifact that can kill supernatural opponents with a single blow. The aura of chaos that surrounds him is so strong that his usually fearless undead opponents are known to flee and suffer the mortal emotion of fear.

During the End Times, Harald finally met an undead enemy he could not best. The Vampire Lord Vlad von Carstein was able to slay the warrior after a fearsome duel.

Notes

Harald has gained the nickname "Harry the Hammer" amongst many Warhammer players and Games Workshop.
