The Gates of Azyr is an Age of Sigmar novella. It is the first Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Black Library story. The novella tells the story of the first Battle of the Brimstone Peninsula.


The war is over, and the Mortal Realms have all but fallen to Chaos... Korghos Khul rampages across the fiery Realm of Aqshy, hunting down mortal kind to slaughter or subjugate to Khorne. His Goretide have crushed all resistance... until the storm. From the heavens hurtle paladins clad in gold. Sent by Sigmar, the Stormcast Eternals have come to liberate all the realms from the yoke of Chaos. Their leader is Vandus Hammerhand, Lord-Celestant of the Hammers of Sigmar. After a long age of darkness, there is hope. Vandus must open the Gates of Azyr to unleash Sigmar's righteous fury against the damned. Everything depends on his victory.[1]
