Before he became the God-King of Azyr and saviour of the Mortal Realms, before the Old World perished in the fires of the End Times, before even the rise of the Empire, Sigmar was a mortal man. As the young chieftain of the Unberogen tribe, he saved the high king of the dwarfs, earning the eternal friendship of the mountain folk. When a mightly horde of orcs threatened his lands, he united the tribes of men to stand against them at Black Fire Pass. He broke the siege of Middenheim and pushed back the forces of Chaos. And in defeating the great necromancer Nagash, he saved mankind, securing the future of the Empire and taking his first steps on the road to godhood. His deeds are legend. This is his story.
