The Chaos attack or “Storm of Chaos” was a devastating invasion of the Empire led by Archaon, Lord of the End Times (see front pic on the home page). Archaon’s forces were defeated but only after destroying most of Kislev and Middenland ending in a seven day siege on Middenheim that nearly extinguished the city. During this attack Graf Boris Todbringer, Emperor Karl Franz, and many other luminaries were slain defending the empire. It has been a year since the incursion and the power struggle among the elector counts continues. The Theocrat of Sigmar is the next likely replacement for the emperor – though an official coronation is far from secured. The empire is still in recovery from this disaster and many beastmen and mutants from the invading Chaos force still lurk about the fringes of urban settlements.
