Despite the time frame of it's existence I'd say The Empire, due to how short their lives are, they do so much and so much has occurred compared to older races which have maybe one of two major events which pretty much dominate their fluff.

Sorry bro, didn't mean to antagonise, just my opinion. I think for me "Have" is the word for Lizardmen, they "have" done loads of awesome things, but not much recently. They are basically a race of mindless automotons who have stagnated and like the Dinosaurs haven't realised they are extinct. Although on the side of Order, I would never quote Lizardmen as the "good guys", more like the "only guys" as far as they are concerned.

Actually in the newer fluff of the Vampires, Tomb Kings and Nagash it doesn't quite go that way.



Though I have to say if there is one thing I truly dislike about the Nehekharan fluff it is the fate of Alcadizzar. The greatest Priest King since Settra himself and one of the only people to have slain Nagash (and depending on the fluff source, he's the one that cost Nagash his hand) and ends up dying the most pathetic death ever, half-mad and brokenhearted over the fate of his beloved kingdom he died in a creek in the middle of nowhere. And of course no returning through undeath for him unlike all the other kings.

Where is that from? 7th Edition, or a sneak peak at Nagash 3? Nagash 2 came out after the army book, and most recent is, well, most recent.

Thanks for giving me some background on the Vampire Counts. So far, through all that I've learned from your replies and researching myself, the Vampire Counts, the Dwarves, and the Ogres.

Thanks for all the help. I appreciate it.

Vaz: Which part? The Vampires joining then later abandoning Nagash? Nagash's Curses on them?

Most of my comments are from what I've read in the current Vampire Counts book, the new and old Tomb kings book (the newer one came out long after the second Nagash book) as well as a bit from the Liber Necris and the Nagash books.

Not quite dude, after reading the last Empire book it's a bit different.

Haven't read the Sigmar Trilogy yet. But yeah that was my bad on the Sigmar/Nagash War. It was just W'soran and his followers, the future Necrarchs that remained at Nagash's side.

It's a tie between Vampire Counts and Skaven IMO.
