Gotrek The Slayer Returns To Seek His Doom In Age of Sigmar

February 15, 2018 by dracs

That's right, the greatest Slayer the World That Was ever saw is once again taking up his axe and entering the Age of Sigmar in a new audio drama Realmslayer.


Back in the days of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, Gotrek, together with his companion Felix journeyed the world in search of a great death for the slayer, facing the most dangerous monsters and evil villains there were.

Gotrek and Felix

Gotrek finally met his end with the World That Was, stepping into the Realm of Chaos to fight the demons that dwelt there... or so everyone thought!

Here is the statement from Black Library:

"Fabled hero of the Warhammer Old World, Gotrek Gurnisson is reborn and cast into the Age of Sigmar for a brand-new, feature-length audio adventure.

Gotrek Gurnisson was the greatest monster slayer of the age, who met his doom at the End Times. The heroic Duardin stepped forth into the Realm of Chaos to fight the daemons gnawing at the world’s ending and satisfy his death oath, leaving behind his companion Felix Jaeger. Now Gotrek has returned, having outlived the old gods and the Old World. Spat from the ruinous depths with his redemption unfulfilled, he emerges into the Mortal Realms, a strange new world where gods walk and dark forces are ascendant. Nothing is as he remembers. His oaths are dust, and the lands are torn asunder by Chaos.

Yet when Gotrek learns of human champions being elevated to immortality for Sigmar’s fight against this darkness, the so-called ‘Stormcast Eternals’, he knows why fate has brought him into this new age. To find Felix. For only then can he find the peace in death he seeks. But is there more to Gotrek’s apotheosis than even he can fathom? Has he truly been chosen by Grimnir and for what purpose?

This audio drama boxed set contains a four-part story read by a stellar cast, recounting the much-anticipated return of Gotrek Gurnisson."

I am really excited to see Gotrek returning and I am happy it is the same Gotrek, not a reboot to fit with the new background. It will be really interesting to see how this character, thoroughly entrenched in the traditions of the old world, will take to the new.

Are you happy to see Gotrek return? What do you hope to see happening to the great slayer in this new series of adventures?
