Devoted of Sigmar are the true believers of Sigmar - men and women willing to do anything for their divine lord.[1]


Sigmar often inspires fanaticism in his followers and the previously secluded peoples of Azyrheim are no exception and they are further inspired and encouraged by the many places of worship within that realm. The wayshrines are found throughout the Realm of Azyr bring him to the people as do the vast shinning Hallowhammer Cathedrals.[1]

The Devoted now flood across the Mortal Realms, bringing the word of Sigmar to the peoples of those land. Many are flagellants caring little for possessions or even their own health. Warrior Priests stride forth to smite the enemies of their master, singing his praises as they do so whilst Witch Hunters stalk the shadows looking for the hidden enemy - the cultist of the dark gods of Chaos.[1]


There are many sects and cults spread across the Mortal Realms that follow different stricture and dogma than that of the Azyrite Church, the largest organization of the Devoted.[5a]

The Azyrite Church is deeply and intrinsically intertwined with the culture of Azyr. The extensive, bureaucratic organization is led by the Arch War-Priestess, who rules from the city of Azyrheim. Though much of the day-to-day maintenance and running of the church is given over to lesser clergy.[5a]

The Order of Azyr, another off-shoot of the Devoted of Sigmar, is said to act directly under the authority of the God-King, placing them firmly outside the authority of the Azyrite Church or the Grand Conclaves of the Free Cities.[5a]

Many of Sigmar's faithful desire to preach and convert through peaceful means. But there are just as many or more who choose to convert people at the edge of a blade.[5a]

The membership of the devoted is as diverse and myriad as the number of denominations and cults found within Sigmarite religion. Their ranks are full of everything from elite, professional warriors and bombastic orators to the zealous fanatics of the flagellants and those masterful manipulators who revel in any such organization.[5a]


Many of the greatest heroes and martyrs of the Devoted of Sigmar are canonized as Celestial Saints, their deeds and names remembered by the God-King himself. Those individuals canonized as saints are fondly remembered and often venerated by the Devoted.[9a][10a]
