Goldjacket is a term used to collectively refer to certain Freeguilds of Hammerhal Aqsha, including the Golden Lions, Leaden Bulls, and Sun Seekers, who so prolific among the God-King's campaigns that they are who most folk in the Mortal Realms picture when they think of the Freeguilds.[3a][5a]


The people of Hammerhal are a proudly militant people and their Freeguilds are among the best equipped among the Cities of Sigmar. The Goldjackets are fiercely proud of their heritage and are famed for their unwillingness to retreat even in the face of impossible odds.[1a][3a]

They are an inspiration to the peoples of Hammerhal, who view them as potent symbols of the Dawnbringer Crusades on par with that of the Banners Heraldor.[5a]


Though the Goldjackets are wildly renowned as line infantry, the term refers to a vast array of different formations and soldiery operating out of Hammerhal Aqsha.[1a][3a]


It is the gleaming breastplates that they wear into battle that earned the Freeguilds of Hammerhal Aqsha the nickname of Goldjackets.[3a]

Notable Goldjackets

  • Broran Jeth: Greatsword veteran of the guild tasked with hunting down a warband that captured the son of an Azyrite noble household. [2a]
  • Trovan Joth: A Marksman Sergeant who is deeply proud of the Goldjackets reputation.[4a]
