here are four great Chaos Gods - four brothers in darkness - who rule
the infernal region known as the Realm of Chaos. This is not a
material realm but a place without physical or temporal boundaries, a
vast formless limbo that exists beyond the light of sun or star. From
their vantage point beyond space and time the Chaos Gods ponder the
feeble antics of mortals much as a man might study a nest of ants.

I w.llked across the plain of bone beneath the bnzen sky, All
about wert: the skulls of the sbin and amons them srew black
flowers. each twisted bloom a soul in thralL Crimson-flttked
flies sucked at the red nectu in that field and the air usted
bloody in my mouth, The black flowers nodded their heads as
I passed and whispered in the bitter-scented breeze, A distant
daemon's shriek reached my ears ilIId the sound of tormented
laughter drifted past and was swallowed by silence,
And then I came to the T rte of Damned Shades,
Living souls had huns upon its branches and living souls had
fed its roots in ases past, Twisted with the pain of their
missuided loyalty the shades had made their pact and now had
their reward, Those same shades mOillled their rtgret and agony.
pbding for pity from every branch and twig. save one whose:
deviant eye I met. I paused in the sbre of that eye, The Tree of
Damned Shades spoke in a splintering voice. crying out as if a
thousand axes were tearins at its hartwood.
-By broken faith and bitter promise a man walks in the sardens
of blood, Once my roots taste of his momI body he is mine
and I am he, A man .., a man ... I will be free in the flesh and
bone, I will sby for you my master, Blood beyond measure I
will spill upon the battldidds of the world, Dh... free:dom
from this wooden frame that I could once asain march to the
beat of my heart:
The tree: writhed ilIId shook its dark branches and I fled. for my
fate lay not with those: trapped and hideous souls...

Kh o rn e is th e m os t powe rf ul o f all th e Chaos God s. His
chief ri va l is Tzeentch. the Great Sorce rer Tzeentch is the
patron o f w iz<lI'ds just as K ho rn e is the patro n o f warri o rs.
Of co urse , this ri va lry d oes nOl prevent Khorne makin g
co millo n ca use with Tzeenlch wh en it is conH 'n ienl to do
so . Combin ed. the t\VO god s are always m o re po w erful

Even so . Kh o rne makes use of the Prin ce o f Chaos \"hen
necessa ry. as mu ch as it ma y ga ll hilll lO do so.

T zeenlch is th e G reat Sorce rer. th e god of mag iC

mock those wh o look upo n him. As Tzeelllch speaks thes
faces repea t his words, o ft en w it h subll e but impo rtant
diffe rences o f meaning. The gael's pucke red face is fo rm ed
upon his up per to rs , so h is head and body are o ne. Fro m
above his eyes spring two swee ping ho rn s o f great length .
H e appears suspended ahove a sea of swirlin g multi colo ured mist. Tn this fo rm he speaks w ith his fo ll owe rs
and in such shape he is depicted in his temples .
Tzeenlc h is almost as pOII'erful as Khorn e but his po\'\'er
takes a very different fo rm. Tzeenlch is th e mas ter o f magic
and subtlety. It is Tzeentch \" ho holds the R e~ dm o f Chaos
beyond time and space and it is he who watch es over lhe
destin y of the material universe. His p lOls are complex and
inre rw oven . and he is th e [)rin c i p~tI arc hitect of secre t

The god 's giga nric bod y is b loa ted with co rrupti o n and

A lth o ugh Nurgle is ranked hehind Kh o rne and Tzeentch
Lhe trulh is that his pO\\'er is nOl necessaril y wea ker. but

Here the Chaos Gods vie with each other to win the loyalty of Chaos
cre atur es and the souls of men.

special feature of the Chaos army is the Chaos Gifts cards, a deck
representing mutations, special powers, and uniquely chaotic
occurrences. Most of these take the form of simple bonuses to a
model's characteristics. However, there are some quite unusual powers
as you w ill realise w hen you read through the cards.

The ca rd deck is used to determ ine rand o m bo nuses fo r

your arm y d uring th e ga me . fowe \'e r. th e gods are no t
co mplete ly o n yo ur side as YO LI \yill disC() \er. Th ere are
also rand om occu rre n ces in th e G ift d eck Wlli c h w or k
agains t you. Suc h is the nature of th e \yhim siGi I Gods o f
Chaos - the re is an up sicle and a dO\\'n side.

The Ch a s p b ye r can pla y an y ca rd o r ca rd s at an y

appro priate time. M st Girds defin e exa ctl y when they can
be used . although t his is fairl y o b vio us in most cases. Fo r
exa mpl e. a g ift th at co n fers an ext ra Attack is pla y ed
duri ng the hand-to -hand comh:)( phase. a gi ft rha t confers
an ex tr a sav in g thro \-v is pla ye d wh e n a wo und is
sustained . etc.


Once a card h:Js been p layed it is pla ced o n a d iscard pile

and cannOt be used again.

The Ch aos G i ft s are u sed duri n g th e ga m e to gi v e the

Ch aos pla ye r r and o m ho nu ses and to ini tia te some
ra ndo m chaotic e\ents. The bonuses re pre~e nt mutations

yo u revea l that o ne of yo ur m o dels has huge rang~ \yith

(ga ining + 1 llack).

A card can he played on beha l f of any m odel in th e Cha os

arm y \\'ith th e excep ti o n of daemo ns and Chaos Sp:l\\'n.

Th e g ifts are used as fo ll ows. A t th e start f th e game

shuffle the G ift deck and p lace it bce down at the side o f
th e table or som e o th er co n ve nient pos itio n. The cleck is
p r inted o n thick qua l ity ca rd ( the s:lIne as th e spe lls an d

deck up into se \'c ral smaller pi les . Thi s makes it eas ier to

t the stalt of his first turn the Ch aos pl;ryer takes tv-'o ca rds

At th e start o f each of his r 1l0\\'ing tUI'll S. the C h ~IOS p layer

Drag o n Og res are the mos t ancient of all the

world's living creatures. Aeons ago their race made
a sinister pact with the forces of Chaos. embracing
damnation rather than accepting a slow decline into
extinction. Unless they die in battle Dragon Ogres
live practically forever. spending most of their time
asleep. Only mighty thunder storms stir Dragon
Ogres from their sleep. When the lightning cracks
across the darkened skies they battle for supremacy
on the highest mountain peaks.



Collecting a Chaos army for Warhammer presents many opportunities for all manner of
conversion and modelling work. Individualised Chaos Champions, mutants and Spawn
can be created using a few well-established techniques. This short section demonstrates
a few of the limitless possibilities modelling provides and includes an extract from the
Citadel Miniatures Modelling Guide detailing an ambitious project - a splendid
Sorcerer of Slaanesh mounted on a Chaos Dragon.

Chaos Spall'lI

Chaos Spaw/l ofNllrgle


T he scope for conve rting mini at ure. into he lli shly mu ta ted C haos Spawn is
in fini te. T he model show n above left ill ustrate the pote ntial that C itadel' s
plas tic min iatures have for th is type of project. The addi tion of a barbarian' s uppe r torso to a wol f body create.
a con vincing centaur effect. A litt le re modell ing of the face using epo xy putty : horns and spi kes from plastic
sprue odd ment s and a pai r of metal ca. ti ngs for the te ntac le arms complete the gruesome picture. The Spawn of
Nurgle, by contrast, is an entire ly metal and modell ing putty piece. The techniques used to create this montrosity
are ex pl ai ned in deta il in the Modelli ng Guide .




This model illustate'i how to get the most out of your

modelling hobby. The raised ~word arm is in fact the original
arm of the barbarian used to create the Spawn model above.
The extra arm is taken from a Citadel plastic Skaven. Because
both s\\on..l arms and the Beastman arc all plastic components
this ~ort of complex effect is achieved easily. Once the various
components ha\e cut and
fillet! to fit. the polystyrene
glue used to stick them
togeather not only forms a
permanent and very strong
bond but it actually "welds"
the piece .. together. This
results in a really smooth fit
\\hich requires little or no
filling .


Thi conve rsion is

Chaos Sorcerer ofT=:.eenlch

One of the simplest and yet most effective cOll\'ersions that you can
app ly to a Chao, Champion is to add a tail. The champion of Nurgle
\hown here has been tran,formed by the addition of a scorpion tail
taken from a Chaos Hound.
The tail \\.as carefully
removed with a razor saw to
ensure that the cut \\as flat
and would lit neatly onto the
back of the Champion.
Remcmber to put the rest of
the Chaos Hound into your
bits box. so it can be used on a

future modelling project. Attaching the tail

\\ as very straightforward. the back of
Champion was filed down flat and the tail was
pinned into placc and glued.


Dragons are the most powerful monsters in Warh ammer and some of the most
spectacular miniatures. Their huge size and ferocious appearance m akes them
tower above even the largest units or war machines. They also make
impressive mounts for a character or an army general. In this section I'll be
looking at a conversion of a Ch aos General mounted on a dragon. This is a
large, complex conve rsion, and the most ambitious of those covered in this

Most of the conversio ns covered so far have been
q uite small, w hich makes the m easy to work with.
Prog ress ing fro m co nve rting s ma ll fi g ures to a
dragon may seem like a huge leap, but there is really
ve ry little d iffere nce. Th e tec hniqu es app lied a re
exactly the same, just o n a larger sca le. In fac t the
ride r is , if an yt hing, a s lig htl y mo re co mpl ex
conversio n than the dragon itself.
This modelling project differs fro m the other special
conversio ns in the guide in that it is no t based o n
anything specific, such as a piece of artwork. so I had
total freedom to do what I wanted.
The initial inspiratio n came fro m the model itself - it
is witho ut doubt the most spectacular mo nster in the
entire ra nge and just cries o ut fo r a b it of spec ial
atte ntion. The obvio us thing to do was to mount a
ride r on it a nd turn it into the centre-p iece fo r a n
army. You couldn't wa nt a more spectac ula r a rmy

Choosing the com ponents

The first step was to decide which parts I was going
to use fo r the diffe rent ele ments of the conversio n.
This was no problem for the dragon itself. as I didn't
wa nt to ma ke any majo r compo nent changes , just
some alteratio ns in the pose. I used a couple of extra
pieces: an additio nal tail section and a left am1.
The rider uses parts from two basic miniatu res, with
detail added from others. The legs were the first part
I chose. They were take n fro m the High Elf Griffo n
ride r a nd came complete w ith a saddle back. The
upper body was cut from a Cha mpio n of Slaanesh,
which has a snake tail instead of legs. The whip is
from another Chaos Champio n and I also used the
back banner from an Eldar Dark Rea per Exa rch.
The photograph at the to p of the page shows all of
the ma in compone nts used in this conversion. There
were also some othe r mino r pieces and materials that
I found in my bits box. 111e only othe r things I used
were modelling putty, plasticard and scenic material
for the base.


As I me ntio ned ea rlie r, the d rago n itse lf has no t
actually been converted that much, o nly the positio n
and so me of the deta ils have been changed. Altering
the pose of such a large mode l ca n be tricky a nd
req ui res th e use of a little fo rce. The photograph
below shows how the neck was bent. The end of the
neck was w rapped in paper and clamped in the jaws
o f a bench vice, ma king it far eas ie r and sa fe r to
manipulate. You need to be velY ca reful not to snap
[he metal, so apply the fo rce smoothly. Any sudden
movements will stress the metal.

The tail
To give the dragon more of an unusual look
consistent with Chaos, I decided to give the tail two
tips. This was quite easy: I simply cut off the tips of
two tails about two inches from the end and glued
them both back onto the stump of one of the lower
body sections. I had to taper the inner edges of the
ends of the tails to get them to fit neatl y togetller. I
cut the sides down with a hea vy craft knife , and
smoothed the joining surfaces with an emery boa rd. I
glued the two tail sections together first and then
smoothed down the combined end of the join and
attached them to the body with a strengthening pin.
nJe arms lI. 'ere pillned ;11/0 place so ,balthere was a gap be/ween tbe
sholiider and fh e body. They were thell bellt i1ll0 fb e desired position
and the gap hetween tbell1 !/las filled ,/'ith modelling pully .

Positioning the arms

When fh e two fa ils bad beell joined I smootbed down their combined
end and allaciJed fhem to the body.

The anns o n the original model are positioned quite

high, ma king it difficult to add a rider. To make it
easier to place the rider, I altered the position of the
arms . A ho le was drilled in the end of each of the
anns and in the centre of tile sockets. The arms were
then pinned into place, but with a length of wire that
was s lightl y too lo ng , so the re was a small gap
between the components. This allowed the arms to
be bent into tile right positions. Then all I had to do
was fill tile gaps with modelling putty and model on
some scales.

One of the interesting features of this conversion
are tlle reins. These are different from the paper
reins covered earlier in the guide. requiring a
slightly higher level of modelling skill to create.
Fine chain is available from modelling shops or
jewellers. It isn't particularly cheap, but I only
use it occasionally, in short lengths, so it lasts for
quite some tin1e. The best sort of wire to use is
either fine fuse wire or florists ' wire. The best
quality of this sort of wire is tllat it is easy [0 bend
and fonn into different shapes.
On the Chaos Dragon I attached the lengths of
chain to the hands and the horns using loops of
wire . This was made by wrapping the wire
round a narrow length of tube as shown in tile
photographs. The easiest way to attach the chain
to tile wire is to thread the end link of chain onto
tile wire and then glue this closed into a loop .
Alternatively, you can split one of the links in tile
chain, hook it over an already fornled wire loop
and re-glue it. I keep a pa ir of tweezers and a
needle handy for opening and closing links.

The legs

Adding detail to the body

The origina l dragon is positioned standing on both

hind legs, giving it a stable base, I wanted to create as
much movement as possible in the miniature , so I
decided to alter the positio n of the right leg. This was
not d iffic ult, I juSt pinned it on in a ra i. ed position
and filled the gap around the join using putty. The
o rigina l foot has a fl atte ned underside to make a
stable join with the base. To get rid of this I removed
the foot at the ankle and replaced it with a casting
of one of the hands. I also removed the lhu mb and
re-attac hed it to the ins ide of the leg just be low
the knee.

The two main fea tur s [ added to the body were th e

w hip and the ha ndl e for th e re ins. The whip wa s
easy to add : the sword was removed Wit1l a pa ir of
clippers a nd the w hip was pin ned on in its place.
Before it was glued on to the hand I bent it into a
shape to suit the shape of the miniature .
The ha nd le for the re ins was a more delicate
ope ration, req ui ring lhe removal of the scro ll from
the right hand . This was mostly sni pped awa with a
pa ir of lippe rs a nd the n cleaned up wit h a craft
knife . Th handle itself was made from the hilts of
Chaos swords that [ fo und in my bits box. J drilled a
hole right throug h dle hand and pinn d one hilt to
each side. The wire loops for the reins were glued on
under dle tongue on each side.

The back o f the sad d le is top ped ,V ilh a standard

pole bea ring me Slaanesh Chaos rune. This replaces
the High Elf design that was Originally on the top of
the sadd le , and wh ich was removed directly below
the hea rt ready [ 0 take d1e new piece. The pole is d1e
back ba nne r from an Eldar Dark Rea pe r Phoenix
Lord, with the rLine on the top altered. This did not
e ntail a great dea l o f wo rk. The o rig inal fLine was
sni pped off the pole and the triang ular se lion was
removed . The circu lar piece was made from a short
length of plastic LUbing which was pinned o nto the
upper part of the rune. The whole t1ling was attached
to the to p of the pole.

Removing components
The first ta sk was to re move the separate
components from thei r origina l miniatures. The most
difficult part to re move wa s the up per bod y. This
req uired ~o me carefu l cutting widl a fret saw. I had to
cut up behind the lowest right hand and the n across
the body, keeping d1e cut as flat a~ possible. The cut
needed to cross dle body just below the ri bbon at the
waist and come out at the back of the left gauntlet.
Cutting with a fret saw is not v ry neat. so d1e surface
needed to be filed flat a fter~varcL.,.

When [he whole conversio n was finished it had to be

th e d ragon is a la rge a nd hea y mode l, on ly

base lI s ing a fa r heavie r gau ge of w ire than I
nonna ll use. approximately 2mm in diameter rather
than Imm. I used this ga uge of wire to pin the left leg
to the body, as this join also ta kes a grea t dea l of
strain . When the model was pinned and glued to the
base, I dri lled another hole between the claws. down
into the base and glued in a pin at a different angle to
the fi r t. 'J11is made the join even stronger.

ver the ages the Old World has known many wars and endured
innumerable perils. The fragile kingdoms of humanity have met
and defeated each threat, yet every new danger emerges greater
than the last, and every battle is won at an ever increasing cost.
Of all these w ars o ne alone is known as the Great War - the Great
War Against Chaos.

Sigmar to avenge th e horrors done th at day.
Afte r the fall of Praag the Chaos horde moved

As the Ch aos Lords prepared to lead th e second

assa ult upon the city Magnus' army reached the
outskirts of the Chaos enGlmpment. The Em pire
troops immediately set about the fe\y Chaos
fo llowers there, and the main Chaos fo rce quickl
learned of this n e ~v threat to its rear. With great ha ste
the Chaos arm )' divicled int o tw o. one part o f th e
ho rcle continuing to assault th e city \yhilst the o th er
turn ed to attack Magnus.

Magnus and his main army had drawn LIp o nto a low
hill where it end ured th e co nstant attack o f Beastm en
and Chaos Warriors. Fro m his pos itio n he saw the
sudden co nfusion in th e rea r r;.lnks of the Chaos
horde, and realised that his own cava lry had relllrned
fro m th e no rth. Th e Chaos troops heard the
confusion hehind them and hegan to \vaver.
Summo ning the last of his strength Magnus spurred
his tmops to th e att ack.

Magnus' bl ow fe ll like ~ I rig hteous hammer. Befo re

the Chaos arm y co uld pro perl y regroup he attacked.
ro uting a large co ntingent o f I\e:lstmen w ho had o nly
JUSl retired fro m the fro m . The creatures despaired
when th ey sa w th e human army, and put up littl e
res istance before th ey turn ed and fl ed. Magnus'
advan ce look him deep int o the haas army.
T ho usands o f Chaos tTOOpS were slaughtereel and the
Chaos fo rce co uld do nothing to h ~ t1t th e pace o f
Magnus' furiOU S advance .

Mea nwhile in the city the defenders witnessed th e

cavahy attack upon the asscmbling ho rdes o f Cha os ,
~ll1d saw the dark fo rces begin to turn . Th e city gates
\\'ere flung open and th e Kbl e\'ites ru shed o ut and
attacked th eir besiegers. Th e Dwarfs swore a great
oa th of vengeance and launched th emselves u pon
the Chaos army. hC\\'ing with their great axes as they
yelled Khazalid battle-cries.

But th e forces o f Chaos w ere still grea t. Though

i'vl:tgnus may have driven o ff many th o usa nds of
troop s, man y more tho us:lIlds remained. Caug ht off
guard by the sudden altack fro m its rea r. the Chaos
arm y too k time to redeploy. but e\'ellluall y its greater

With tremendous ferocity th e cava lty plunged into

Th e alliancc or rh e Cha os Gods ended too. Their

Dark Gods were co ntent to rest the defences of
mankind for their tru e plans are hard LO fathom . For
two hundred demo n years the fo rces o f Chaos

secret \\'ork of infiltratio n and destruction.
Everywhere Chaos prepared fo r th e next attempt to
wrest control of the Old World from its mo rtal lords.




haos Gods are generous but irresponsible with their favours. Gods
cannot distinguish the differe nce in value of their gifts, or they simply
have no interest in investigating the matter. When blessing one of his
fo llowers a Chaos God might inadvertently m ake him stronger,
tougher, faster, astonishingly attractive, intellige nt, or o the rwise
improve his lot. But the gift might equally well disadvantage the
follower, making him weak, feeble-minded, or turning his body into a
sluggish mound of flesh . The Gods of Chaos are also the gods of chance, and
courting their favour is nothing if not ris ky.

aemons inhabit the shadowy Realm of Chao s w here they draw

succour from its endless sea of life-giving magical energy. They can
only exist in the real world if m agically sustained, an d even then their
existence is vulnerable. When the power of Chaos grows strong
magical power builds up in the Warhammer World allowing daemons
to manifest themselves. Close to the Chaos gateway in the far north
this power is strongest, and daemons are able to take on material
form and walk the earth. Only when Chaos is at its most potent are daemons able
to accompany Chaos armies as they march south to war.

h e clatter of soldiers in the alleyway alerted Marius to his

peril. Hurriedly he gathered four black candles and bundled
them into his voluminous robes. With his heart racing he
fumbled for the secret catch by the rtreplace. Long rtngers
quickly found the mechanism and a wooden panel snapped
open with a muted click.
"Open up in the name of the Emperor," roared a voice which
he knew to be that of Falconius Captain of the Theogonist's Guard.

Without wailing for a re pl y the ~oldi e rs hegan to

Slow and wa,y footstep mounted rhe sreep stai rway.

The no ise o f steel aga inst steel ec ho d in its narrO\y

held something infinitely mo re terrifying. Until now

the fo rgi veness of igma r.
Had he but fo resee n this m o m ent. \\'o uld he have
made the pact that bound him so subtly to the Grea t
Sorcerer of Chaos'
A final step brought Falconius into the chamber. For
an instant th e Captain stood silhouened aga inst th e
shifting ca ndle-light, blinking uncertainly, barely able
to contain his own fear. He saw at o nce that Mariu s
\yas there. hunched over a small cas ket that glo \yed
with a radi ance o f its o\vn. Upon th e So rce rer' s
sho ulder there p erched a foul creature, a familiar o f
uncertain form but hai rl ess and vaguely bat-like. Th e
thin g sh ri eked and it s black eye s g lowe red
malevolentl y at th e soldier as he raised his sword .
"Hold there Sorcerer and be silent' " cried the Ca ptain
of the Th eog nist's Gua rd . " But a single \yord and you
die thi s day."
Falconius strode illlo the room h is sword held before
him lik e a ward to th e Sorcerer's p o \\e r . An o th er
s Icli er appea red b ehind him and o thers hes itallll y
crept up th e sta invay.
A sudden and powerful anger \vell ed within th e
Sor erer MJ riu s. Confro nted by his pursuers at last. all
fea r left him and he was O\'ercome with indigna tion.
How dare thi s feeble se ll-sw o rd challenge him . he
who had devoted his li fe to th e stud y of th e arca ne
a,1S. What power did steel ha\'e O\'er him wh en th e
p owe r o f T zee ntc h . th e G rea t So rce rer o f Ch:lOS,

and straighten in sta ture and the black ca ndles that lit
the room burst inro writhing flam es o f hlu e and pink.
"Fooi'" c ri ed Ma riu s, his o ice ec hoe d ro und the

as lightning th at sent Fa lco nius spr,l\ding upo n th e

so ldi er a. he lay tw istin g in agony. A smell o f hot
meta l fill ed th e small room and hlue smoke swi rled
about th e Sorcerer's head . Th e other soldiers gaped in
co nfu sio n. unsure whether to ru sh fo rwa rd o r turn
and flee .
Ma riu s hrea thed deep ly o f the magiC soa ked air. As his
lungs fill ed he fe lt a surge o f p owe r and an
ex hilaratio n that w as unlik e an ything he hac!
expe ri ence d before. Hi s mind seemed to ex p and
beyond the confines of the room. so that it was as if he
we re loo king d ow n up o n th e sce n e fro m a g rea t
height. He saw th shuddering hody or Falconius as if
it were a tiny shrunken thing and he heard his o~vn
laughter like the boom o f a distant drum .
"Oh Foul and Corrupted Fiend know ye not wh::n base

evil thou has t embraced and eve n now succour. "

Volkmar stepped past the trembling sold iers his gaze
fixed up o n th e So rce rer. Th e G rand T heogo nist
I etra yed no sign o f terror for he had confront ed and
defea ted the ev il o f Chao:; man y times and he had
lea rn ed I Hlg ago to trust in the righteous powe r of his
god. About hi;; n ec k hung a tin y go ld en hamm er
\\'hich he clasped in his right hand. holding it between
himself and Marius.

Kithelahar hissed evilly and th e daemon cringed as it

ca ught sight of th e po tent symbol of Sigm ar. IVlarius
felt his own pO'CI'er suddenly ebb. as if the ve,y fa ith of
th e Grand Th eogo ni st w ere a barrier to him . Sp ell
work woul d not sa \'e him now. H e had expended no
littl e energy already and Vo lkmar was an ad versa ry
too powerful for such as he. He felt paniC rise within
his breast.
"O h Grea t Master' " he cri ed o ut. turning his vo ice to
th e heave ns. ,, [ m ak e the Dark Promise at l as t. "
Benea th his feet th e :;igil of Tzeentch glowed hrightl y,
it s sha p e shiftin g faster and fas ter lik e a se rpe nt

ho re o f no key rose into the air and hovered befo re
him . The room fill ed slowly with a din like a daemon's
cr y so that th e m en \y ithin dro pped whatever

Sigmar. th ough it plainl y pained him to do so.
"S ig maI'. " 'ho ut ed th e Grand Th eogo nisr. "S igmar
have mercy on us all. "
"Tzeentch." bellowed Marius, "Cha nger of the Way '.
Great Sorcerer of Chaos . take your servant 's body and

"Oh damned fool! " cried Volkmar ahove th e turmo il o f
daemonic vo ices , " [n but a m o m ent th o u shalt be
b eyond redempti o n. Repent now and di e a mo rtal
death \vhile there is still time."
The casket o pened and Marius saw w hat was inside.
O f all those in that cursed room. only Volkmar himself
could see Ma riu s's fa ce for [hat brief second before the
end. Ever afte,warcls the Gra nd Theogonist would fall
silent if the fate o f Marius sho uld he mentio ned and
