The Free City of Tantalum was a city located in the Ironwoods of the Realm of Ghur, before it was destroyed by a combined assault by undead risen by the Necroquake and Beastmen.[1a]

History

Age of Sigmar

When the Necroquake sent a wave of Necromantic energy across the Mortal Realms the people of Tantalum found themselves under assault both by their own reanimated dead. When the defenders of the city's walls left their posts to fight the undead, the Beastmen of the Ironwoods, longtime enemies of the city, took advantage of the disarray and invaded. Despite the best efforts of the city's defenders, the city was brought to ruin by these dual invading forces. During this siege Jaqlyn Kouslo accidentally created an Endless Spell in the shape of a fiery bull, which went on to devastate settlements in the surrounding regions. Devastated by this she would go on to lead a unit of Freeguild in anb attempt to stop it.[1a]

Military

The city was long defended by its Freeguild regiments and the Magisters of Tantalum, these wizards had been considered the city's greatest defense.[1a]
