What I meant about Gilles was his original "death" following his 12 great battles and being hailed as the uniter. Although that wasn't really fair - he was still a lord of Bretonnia before and was King for the years in between.

Following the presumed death of Countess von Leibwitz during the 2525 Invasion of Altdorf, that leaves a shattered empire heartland and north coast, the merchant/city of learning (Nuln) without a leader and the only remaining powerful city state being Middenheim, and that is not only cut off at the top of a mountain, but at risk of Skaven attacks from the sewers and catacombs, and Graf Todbringer is a fairly pious follower of Ulric and unlikely to welcome Super Saiyan Sigmar.

In regards to the souls, there is enough individuality there. The Ghoul Knight in the Nagash novel said as much - wanting just the end of everything. Not the end of everything and an eternity of existence under Nagash, but an ACTUAL end to all existence, to see the world barren and lifeless. Meanwhile Settra is reborn, IIRC, and Prince Apophas is scattered into his swarm of constituent bugs. I cannot remember what happened to the Liche character or the Necrotect character, but they were never fun.

Khalida actively gave herself to Nagash.

However, soul-wise, it's kind of cool that this is happening, and seeing it happen and evolve personally - not only being an old throwback to the Undead army, but to have its own character behind it. In regards to the army, the Tomb Kings themselves I found were utter gash, and stuck in the rut of being the grumpy old guy at the end of the lane who shouted "get off my lawn" every once in a while someone tried to rob his strawberries. Now they've got a reason to actually exist, rather than being morbid emo little bitches sat there lamenting what Nagash did nearly 7000 years before.

The countess is not dead she was rescued, she's even one of the counts that's bothering Kurt Helborg.

Notice the location. The invasion has happened. If Helborg died, it's likely she did as well.

It makes me see the Elves differently but they remain my favourite fantasy army. It changes how I would make up an army though. I'm not worried about tabletop prowess but from a fluff standpoint it adds whole new elements. I had enough trouble thinking of how I wanted to theme my army when it was just High Elves (almost as much as trying to pick a Space Marine Chapter), now it's tougher. I'm hoping once I actually manage to get a copy of the book things may become clearer to me.

Before reading this I thought that Teclis may have chosen to return to the Empire and take over from Gelt at the Collages of Magic. If that had been the case I'd have considered an Empire army instead but otherwise they just don't interest me.

On a slightly related note, here's a list of my favourite HE Characters in order and their current status:-

Eltharion the Blind - Retconned
Teclis - Missing
Korhil - Dead
Eltharion the Grim - Dead
Tyrion - Dead

So that hasn't gone too well for me .

Heh, my favourite one was Imrik, was sad he was cut from the High Elves 7th. Was a bit disappointed with his showing as a petulant little bitch in Book 1, but after reading that, I'm liking that he went out with a bang.

For a Wood Elves fan, having just read the Orion series, I hated the Khaine book. It was basically a Malekith monologue. Orion, greatest hero of the wood elves battles Tyrion and dies, but it all happens in one sentence. Not even taking place in the battle. He's just a report given to Malekith, never actually seen in the book. Meanwhile the elves go to Athel Loren because "Athel Loren will welcome us, it always has." Which is... Incorrect. To say the least. It felt like the author had never read or heard anything about Wood Elves, but got to change their entire dynamic. That said I enjoyed the first two End Times books quite a bit.

Some more info from Khaine, regarding Araloth's rescue mission;

Quote:
Originally Posted by 4chan
Lileath sends Araloth and Kalara on a dangerous journey; deep into the Realm of Chaos, to seek out Nurgle's mansion and rescue Shallya. During their travels, they form an alliance with a somewhat crazed human scholar who has evidently been given free reign to roam the Realms of Chaos unmolested - possibly Richter Kless, author of the Liber Chaotica. With his assistance, Araloth makes a brief foray into the Crystal Maze of Tzeentch and rescues an imprisoned sorcerer, who lends his sorcerous powers to their journey. Their group completes itself with the addition of a strangely accented giant-statured human, a knight in brilliant silver armor - this may be Kaldor Draigo. Together, they finally reach Nurgle's mansion, where the knight sacrifices himself to distract the guardian daemons so that the others can sneak into Nurgle's pox-kitchen. There, they rescue Shallya, but only with a sacrifice; Kalara has to remain behind and serve as the poxfulcrum, the daemon tester of Nurgle's plagues, or else Nurgle will realise that the goddess has been stolen from him. As the quartet leave, the sorcerer betrays Araloth, only to be swallowed whole by a beast of Nurgle that Araloth took pity on during their initial travels. The scholar deceives the daemonic beast into leaving without accidentally killing "its friend Araloth", bids the Wood Elf and the weakened deity adieu, then happily wanders off into the Realms of Chaos again, even as Araloth returns to Lileath's side.
Cool. That in itself could be a novel; Araloth , Richter Kless and Kaldor Draigo teaming up to rescue Shallya from Nurgle's realm. I suspect that the author however has mixed up Isha and Shallya. Not sure who the Sorcerer is, but I suspect he is somebody of note, or who the hell Kalara is.
