The Taleutens were a barbarian tribe of humans that lived in what is now the Empire. [1a]


The first king of the Taleutens was Talenbor who forged what would become the tribes ancestoral blade, Utensjarl - a cavalry sabre. [2b]

After the Norsii invaded with a large army, King Krugar dispatched Notker as his emmisary to King Björn seeking his warriors to join with his own and those of King Aloysis of the Cherusens against the northerners. [1a]

The combined army of about 7000 warriors met the 6000 of the Norse in battle in the foothills east of the Middle Mountains and defeated them but the Warlord of the enemy managed to retreat with many of his warriors to a wooded ridgeline - giving them a good defensive position. [1b]

A great horde of Greenskins had invaded the lands of the Ostagoths, Merogens and Menogoths. The combined armies of the Cherusen, Endals, Taleutens and Unberogens faced them at the Battle of the Aver, defending the bridges over the river Aver. For several days and nights the battle raged until finally the humans were victorious but at great cost. [1d]

Following the Battle of Black Fire Pass, border disputes arose with the Cherusens, each claiming the other were rainding across the border. [2a] In the summer of 1 IC, Sigmar called for a great muster against Marius of the Jutones and with their allies, he marched on him with a combined force of around 10,000 warriors, Krugar sending a company of the Red Scythes, swordsmen and horse archers. [2c]

When Nagash invaded the newly created Empire in search of his crown, Count Krugar was besieged in Taalahim, destroying the undead with every brutal sweep of Ultensjarl. [3a]



They had a mixed cavalry force including Horse Archers who would taunt the enemy to get them to charge them. [1b] Unlike other tribes such as the Unberogens who rode bareback, they used saddles and stirrups which gave them more control over their steeds. [1c]

  • Red Scythes: Elite Cavalry lancers. [2b]



Before battle their warriors drank harsh spirits as they talked about the heads they would claim. [1b]
