Patsy, you're thinking of Erengrad, the Kislevite port, which was indeed besieged and then assailed by troops from land and sea, as Marauders came from the waters and Hellcannons battered down the walls.  Those events took place in the recent past, during the Storm of Chaos.

The city of Praag came to fame for falling (after a long siege) during the Great War Against Chaos, two hundred years (and change) past.  It was those events that led to the city being corrupted by Chaos, etc.  The army of Asavar Kul then moved on, was defeated at Kislev by Magnus the Pious, and the force of Chaos driven north of Praag again.  The city was so corrupted that it had to be razed to the ground; the Kislevites rebuilt the city atop it, but still experience problems from time to time, and so occasionally portions of the city are destroyed and rebuilt.

During the Storm of Chaos, Praag was besieged by the forces of Archaon, but Kislevite and dwarven forces held the city and it never fell.  Sometime after Archaon was driven out of Sokh, near Middenheim, the Chaos forces at Praag began to break up and the siege was lifted.

The Empire had employed Kislev units within their ranks for many years, but suddenly some years ago this practise was discontinued in some idiotic edict originating from the city of Nottingham.



I thought this was hillarious :laugh:

Hmmmm... Thinking of making a Kislev army but do not have enough information about heraldry. Who do the Kilsevites worship? What colours are their flags?  What colours are their uniforms? What symbols are common in their army?

Thanks for any help.

Hiya Redhammer,

I've emailed you info from the GW Kislev booklet from a few years ago.  That was for a 'contingent' idea GW had which died a death, but it gives a fair amount of fluff.

You can use 'true' Kislev units as allies still in friendly games, or you can use the standard Empire List and just make/convert your minis with a Kislev theme ...........

PS. Watch out for Dannyfave - he's a Kislev fanatic and may start stalking you ............  :icon_wink:

Thank you so much Midaski, but I am thinking of playing my Kislevites with Empire rules.

i would expect that they are a legion of them. With each legion having 5,120 legionaries by late roman terms.

There no true fluff discussing a solid number, but i would say there's around 5000

Im not sure numbers are the right measurement for fluff, but all I have read suggests that there are many of them, more like a knightly order than a regiment of renown.
