Warhammer World, Nottingham
Throne of Skulls is a gaming event all about fun, friendly battles in a relaxed atmosphere. You’ll get to play some great games against other like-minded players in the unique atmosphere of the spectacular Warhammer World Event Hall.
No matter whether you’re a seasoned player or if this will be your first step into playing our games, the focus for this event is on camaraderie and playing in the spirit of the game; that is to say non-competitive and fair play are the order of the day.
The Damned of Shyish
When the Realm of Death came into being, it is said, the other Mortal Realms shuddered to have so much death magic unleashed upon them. Even the glow of Azyr’s stars dimmed for a moment and the firmament shook as the chill game from Shyish pushed through the realms. In the aftermath of this terrible event, rotting corpses across the length and breadth of the realms stirred from their muddy graves and gore-soaked battlefields. These were the first of the Deadwalkers.
Little more than mindless beasts of death, they staggered through the ruins wrought by war, adding misery and misfortune to empires and continents already suffering under sword and flame. Relentlessly, the Deadwalkers grew in number until not even the remotest part parts of the Mortal Realms could boast freedom from their rotten grasp.
And so began the fight back. Armies of freed peoples, warriors of Chaos and all others who wished to not be overcome by the growing tide of shambling zombies that now plagued their lands raised arms against the Deadwalkers. Determined to vanquish the realms of the undead disease, you now march. Tread carefully, brave warrior… do not let them take you alive.
In this Throne of Skulls event, battle an endless horde of the undead . Earn Laurels of Victory as you desperately try to stay alive in the wake of the most horrifying uprising in the history of the Mortal Realms. The Deadwalkers are here to feast on your flesh and their hunger is never sated…
