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

The Lantic Empire was once a technologically advanced empire, but Archaon made sure that in over a century they were reduced to a handful of scattered primitive tribes, something he took great joy in seeing.[1] Following its demise, Hundreds of Abhorrant Ghoul Kings bring their courts to feed on the dead in the ruins and many former warriors of the empire become mordants themselves. [2]

History

The Eshunnaic Legion defects to Chaos after the destruction of the Gilded Steamgird by the Fyreslayers of the Lofnir Lodge, the defence barrier that had guarded the Empire for ages which they had originally helped build. The fyreslayers had even abandoned their lodge, said to be due to their lust for ur-gold.[3]
