War of Karak Ankor

Last Stand of Karak Eight Peaks by Gregorius Volff of Erengrad


The battle for the survival of the dwarven realms has turned to a new bloody chapter. The night goblins across the World’s Edge Mountains have been rallied by Gazbag to march with the Bloody Sun Boyz. From the north the Redeyes emerge from the fallen hold of Karag Ungor; from the east the Moonfangs of Mount Gunbad and Mount Silverspear head west towards Karaz-a-Karak; and from the far south the Crooked Moon goblins head due north. While the dwarves and their human allies have mustered their forces to attack the night goblins before they can emerge from their subterranean lairs, little can be done to counter the largest tribe which posses the greatest threat – the Crooked Moon tribe.

The Crooked Moon night goblins bring forth a foul breed of goblins, fed on the fungal brews of Karak Eight Peaks. Gazbag, a goblin himself, seeks to aggrandize the role of his race in the Bloody Sun Boyz WAAAAGH! It was through his hand that the alliance with the night goblins was forged, and it will be through his hand that they will rise to prominence among the greenskins. With the power of Mork and the blessing of Gork, Gazbag has created a special brew of fungal brew to give great strength to his goblin kin. Empowered by this fungal brew are the newest threat to Karak Ankor – the Night Goblin Fanatics, goblins fueled by a supernatural strength who recklessly charge into battle leaving a path of carnage in their wake. 

Marshaled form the halls of Karaz-a-Karak and the holds of the Black Mountains, relatively unscathed by the recent greenskin aggressions, are the legendary Hammerers. The gravest threat to the dwarven capital lays to the east – the fallen hold of Mount Silverspear, now known as Mount Grimfang. Within its once grand halls the night goblins have been allowed to grow unchecked for decades, and now they have answered the summons to march on Karaz-a-Karak. High King Thorgrim Grudgebearer sensed the coming struggle from the east however; forewarned by the ranger squads he proactively has used the information sent to him to preemptively strike Mount Silverspear. As the Hammerers march east down the Silver Road to deal a deadly blow upon the night goblins of Mount Grimfang and settle the great grudge of the fall of the hold, other elements of the forces of the Empire and the Dwarven kingdom act in unison to suppress the Redeyes of Mount Gunbad and Karak Ungor. The Oathbearers have been left with the most dangerous task – confronting the Crooked Moon tribe as it marches forth. Forming defensive positions south of Karaz-a-Karak, the Oathbearers prepare for the onslaught which is sure to shake the World’s Edge Mountains.

The Crooked Moon tribe is marching north with all haste, driven by a rabid frenzy caused by Gazbag’s fungal brew. Preparing to meet the sickly green deluge are the Oathbearers and the Hammerers. The unprecedented unity of the greenskins has turned a new page in the history of the dwarves, the War for Karak Ankor has begun.

Order players who obtained the High King’s Doomstriker in the Night of the Crooked Moon Live Event have two weeks early access to the Hammerer. Destruction players who obtained the Redeye Mushrooms in the Night of the Crooked Moon Live Event have two weeks early access to the Night Goblin Fanatic.
