The End Times Collection (Warhammer Fantasy)
About this deal
From the north, the Winds of Magic blew like a torrent down towards the south, and the whispers of the Dark Gods fell into many mortal ears. Many could not resist the malign will of the Chaos Gods, and thousands across the Empire and beyond committed unspeakable atrocities upon their neighbours, or followed the whispers north to where a great gathering was taking place, seduced by dark promises. Within the walls of the Inevitable City, Archaon sat upon a throne of brass and bone and saw the chieftains and warlords of uncountable tribes lend their allegiance to the new Everchosen. Though these tribes craved bloodshed, Archaon was patient and bid his time. [1b] Some tribes left for the south or fought against each other to quench their battle-lust, but Archaon did not intervene, for he knew that those that stayed their hands were the strongest of will and strength, and would follow the Everchosen to the very end. He had waited and searched and fought for centuries; those who could not match his will, or bow to it, were unworthy to follow him. The End Times were upon the world, and Archaon's hour of triumph was nigh. [1b] The Wars of Reclamation (Late 2520) Darkblade: Reign of Blood by Dan Abnett and Kev Hopgood (2005, ISBN 1844162060), reissued with an additional story as Darkblade, The graphic novel (2011, ISBN 9781844168347)
