Iron Golem

From Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

The Iron Golems are worshippers of Chaos whose Dreadhold can be found in the Ferrium Mountains in Ayadah, a continent in Chamon's Spiral Crux.[1a][1d]

They favour heavy plate armour and carry weapons that in turn crumple and penetrate the toughest armour such as spine-crusher mauls - crafted with spikes on the striking surface of the hammer to maximise the power of the strike.[1c]

Beliefs

Metal is eternal but flesh is impermanent, unable to reshaped through the sacred foging fires. Enemies who are defeated are taken to the flames, heaped upon great pyres - their armour and weapons melted to become obelisks. [1a]

They believe that they are chosen to create weapons for Archaon and his numberless hordes, [1a] trading with many Chaos aligned kingdoms who recognise the quality of their work.[1d]

History

Their ancestors enslaved the Sun Dragon Axrantahos within their mountain and which still is harnessed for its magama blasts that power their forges.[1a][1d]

The Ash War: In the Age of Sigmar the dragon broke free of is bindings and there is a fearsome battle to recapture it. [1d]

Locations

Onyx Fist: The Dreadhold stronghold built over an active volcano, [1a] with a vast forge complex that constructs large numbers of weapons and armour with the branded serf class and prisoners providing the basic labour. It is guarded by the Onyx Guard. [1d]
