A pedantic scholar has done what centuries of work by the Ruinous Powers could not – completely undermined trust in Sigmar’s Stormcast Eternals. They have demonstrated that, by most measures, the Stormcast Eternals actually represent a form of undead necromancy. In the spirit of honest journalism, we have reprinted the accusation below.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that the living dead possess the following qualities:
- They were at one point living beings
- They at some point suffered a death to their mortal bodies
- A portion of their self has been shackled for use by a powerful wizard or magical energy beyond their natural lifespan
It pains me to my core to say this, but Sigmar Heldenhammer, blessed be his name, has been tricked by the wicked necromancer Nagash and employed these dark magicks in the defence of Azyr! We can demonstrate this as follows:
- All Stormcast Eternals profess to have begun their existence as living beings
- If the heralds are to be believed, all Stormcast Eternals had their souls snatched away at the moment of their slaying by the foes of Sigmar
- This soul has been reforged by Sigmar into a form utterly in thrall to his wishes
We beseech all true believers to strike back against these ghoulish horrors, and stop the pollution of the sacred ground of Azyr. Pray that Sigmar sees the error of his ways before it is too late!
