Age of Sigmar Wiki

Sigmar, the God-King of mankind and former mortal man himself.

Humans, also called humanity, men or mankind, are a relatively short-lived but highly dynamic humanoid race who are one of the most populous intelligent peoples of the Mortal Realms.

They could be found in every realmsphere and served both Order and Chaos. Both the Incarnate deity Sigmar and the Chosen Archaon were once mortal men who lived upon the World That Was eons ago.[1]

When Sigmar came upon the Mortal Realms during the Age of Myth, there were already primitive tribes of humans in existence. He raised them up from savagery, and helped them build vast civilisations.[1]

When the Age of Chaos began, Chaos-corrupted men were sent against the other nations and cities of mankind.[1] Most of the survivors who did not choose to serve Chaos were known as the "free peoples of humanity" or the "Free Men."[2][3]

Suffering from starvation from the war, some humans turned to cannibalism, eventually becoming Crypt Ghouls under the Abhorrant Ghoul Kings.[4] During the Age of Chaos, Sigmar took human warriors and reforged them into the Stormcast Eternals.[1]
