Jump to: navigation, search

The Hearthguard is one of the Freeguilds responsible for defending and keeping the peace in the Free City of Izalend.[1a]

History

Age of Sigmar

With the Everflame and the Gate of Martyrs acting as a deterrent to most would-be invaders, the Hearthguard have on occasion become lax in their duties. Such was the case when Arika Zenthe and her companions snuck into the city on their quest to find the Heart of Winter.[1a]

Duties

They defend the Gate of Martyrs, the immense gate in the bay outside the city of Izalend, only assailable break in the Everflame. That giant wall of flame that encircles the region.[1a]

Uniform

Members of the Hearthguard wear conical fur hats, hauberks made of silver chain, and well-forged breastplates made of gold.[1a]

Wargear

The Hearthguard tend to employ long-barrelled muskets and billhooks as their favored weapons.[1a]
