Realmgates are portals connecting the Mortal Realms. At the start of the Age of Chaos, Sigmar closed all Gates of Azyr; when the Stormcast Eternals were created, their first job was to reopen these Realmgates.[1] Some Fyreslayers believe that the opening of the Gates of Azyr are a sign of Grimnir's return.[2] The Flesh-eater Courts make their camps around Realmgates, knowing there will be a constant supply of food.[3]

Types of Realmgates

Baleful Realmsgates

Unstable and flickering, these gates have been cursed by the dark gods. Anyone that travels through them runs the risk of being devoured by daemons. Powerful wizards and priests can stabilize these portals for some time.

Gates of Azyr

Portals connecting Azyr to one of the other Mortal Realms. The most famous is the Whispering Gate located in Aqshy in the Brimstone Penninsula. Its conquest was the first objective of the Sigmar's recovery of the realms.


Unique Realmgates that connect to the realm known as Allpoints. Each Mortal Realm contains only one Arcway, which are heavily guarded by fortresses called All-gates. Prior to the Realmgate Wars, all the Arcways save the Arcway to Azyr remained open and their All-gates were occupied by Chaos forces.

  • Brimfire Gate - The Arcway of Aqshy. Closed by the Stormcast Eternals.
  • Genesis Gate - The Arcway of Ghyran. Closed by the Stormcast Eternals.[4]
  • Endgate - The Arcway of Shyish. Controlled by the forces of Chaos.
  • Mercurial Gate - The Arcway of Chamon. Controlled by the forces of Chaos.
  • Mawgate - The Arcway of Ghur. Freed from Chaos by the Ironjawz, but remains open.
  • Penumbral Gate - The Arcway of Ulgu. The fate of this Realmgate is currently a mystery, as all forces sent there do not return.
