Once the Dwarfs were rulers of the mightiest empire in the Old World. Now, after four thousand years of war, their great underground fortresses are under attack or have fallen to Orcs, Goblins, Skaven and the hordes of Chaos.
But with their advanced weapons and steam-technology, their knowledge of runic magic and their love of a good fight, the Dwarfs are striking back. They will free their homes from the greenskins, rescue the great weapons of legend, and make the Ancestor-Gods proud – or they will die trying. Because for the Dwarfs, a life without honour and glory is not a life worth living.
