More detail would be nice... Seriously, please give us more detail, this stuff is awesome to read.


LotN
Nagash, after sucking the magic from the dwarf ancestor Valaya, invades Nehekara, he plans to return to the Black Pyramid to regain his power and more. A lot of battles are fought, with the Nehekarans on the losing side most of the time, they only win one battle in general and that is when Khalida forces Nefarata to flee from Lahmia again. All of nagash's armies converge on Khemri where Settra is making a stand, he's brought about every construct from the rest of the land of the dead to help defend.

They destroy tons of Krell's army until Arkhan turns up and opens a great chasm which stops them from bringing their greater numbers to the bear. However just as Arkhan shows up, Krell who had been battling from the beginning suddenly gets cut in half as a tomb scorpion bursts from beneath him, he kills it but at the same time also loses his head (believe it says he's in the process of returning)

Several bridges are made and the battle starts properly as Settra takes to the field, he tries to bring down Arkhan several times, but Arkhan avoids him. Until Arkhan's mount gets hit by a great bolt shot at him by a Ushabti I think. He falls to the floor and Settra runs him over, he ends up cutting Arkhan in half, ties both parts up with chains and drags him into the city so the mourtary cult can full on destroy him so he can never return. It's at this point Mannfred and and the Vampire Pirate Captain finally show up.

Settra gives Arkhan over to the mortuary cult and leaves where he is confronted by Khatep the exiled high priest, who tells him about the Destroyer of Eternities, however whilst Settra listens he still takes Khatep's head off but then goes looking for the blade, when he arrives at it's burial place it's gone, because earlier on a skaven assassin sort out Apophas and told him of the sword (because it's the only weapon other than the fellblade which was used to resurrect Nagash and thus destroyed that they know of that can destroy him.

Whilst all this is happening though the mortuary cult is in the process of dispensing of Arkhan, unbeknownst to them though, the master embalmer is a traitor and he begins to read from one of the books of Nagash, sealing their souls in the jars as at the same time, he draws nagash forth from Arkhan's body. Nagash had hid himself within Arkhan's body so that he could bypass the cities wards.

Nagash heads to the the Black Temple and summons Dieter Helsnicht to help him perform a ritual, the ritual involves Dieter reading out the books of Nagash as Nagash descends into the spirit world where he ends up fighting Usirian, as Deiter fiinishes the incantations a great wave of souls batters the god of death and Nagash beats him down before eating him. Nagash has no pretty much because a god of death.

He comes forth and confronts the army, he turns units to his side, he wipes out units at a whim, suddenly Apophas ambushes Nagash he stabs the sword into Nagash's back, but it's not enough any more, Apophas being fails and is smited by Nagash.

Settra tries to defeat Nagash but his amulet that wards against magic no longer works because Usirian is no more, Nagash picks him up by the neck and gives him one more chance to submit, but he refuses going "Settra does not serve! Settra Rules!" Nagash tears him asunder and throws various parts on the floor, Settra is not dead though, his head is still animated.

Nagash proclaims his new godhood destroys Khemri and demands all bow down to him, King Phar goes down fighting, whilst Khalida eventually bows before him, if only so she can eventually take revenge on Nefarata. Deiter is now Guardian of the underworld and only with his leave may souls be raised from the underworld. Nagash heads north back to Sylvania with the intent of finally confronting the Chaos Gods and defeating them.

However right at the end four voices speak to Settra, his body reforms with new magic and he becomes whole again. The voices say "The battle is only over if you wish it, you can be king again" Settra gives no reply and looks out silently across the sands.

I don't think I'm doing justice, it was quite a good read, a lot of detail with unit names etc and other minor lore changes like the Herald of Settra being killed.

The Slayer King is back in his hold licking his wounds as the army he command, which although won the battle was also almost destroyed. As for Gotrek, I don't remember him coming up, but I may of missed it or not put two and two together sorry. :/

Nagash has now pretty much become a god of death.
Dear god...

Still he won't win. The Skaven made sure he was killed once, they'll do it again.

Think they tried to do that with the Destroyer of Eternities but it didn't work out. I don't think the Skaven will be the ones to bring his downfall this time.
It will either be Archaon, Settra, or Valten who slays Nagash. My money is on Settra since he still lives, classic revenge scenario. But I do think the Skaven will have a hand in his ultimate defeat, they made one Fellblade so... whose to say they couldn't make another.

I don't think it'll be a tomb king that ends him, he's already fallen to one in the past. I think it'll be Archaon, the whole point of Nagash atm is to make sure Chaos doesn't overrun the entire world so it'll be fitting that he fails in his task, however I tend think Archaon may then be defeated by Valten, who will then disappear like Sigmar did.

Nefarata having wandered the mountains found a secret passage in the past, but didn't immediately access it but used to magic to hide it. Thorek Ironbrow comes a long with a lodestone and discovers it and discovers the unsubtle magics used to disguise it. Neferata now acting under nagash's orders sets out to retrieve what ever is hidden behind the door, they end up clashing with the dwarves, along with krell's forces and some peed off goblins Neferata killed most of on during her journey.

Anyway the outcome is Thorek tries to bring the cavern down and shatters his anvil, the King of Azul is decapitated by Krell and the Undead win the battle, turns out what was hidden behind the door was the domin of Valaya where she supposedly rests. In a throw away comment later on it's mentioned Nagash sucked the magic from her so he could power the great cloud of darkness above Nehekara, it served as a double purpose however as it then weakened him enough so he could hide within Arkhan and all the magic he spewed forth was eventually sucked up by the Black Pyramid, once he gained access to it he retrieved his power and went on to battle Usirian.

Yep, more and more are being killed off, there's barely any elector counts left. Gelt has now become a necromancer in service to Vlad Von Carstein (who had been raised by Nagash with the promise of returning Isabella) because he opened his mind to light magic and holy magic when trying to repair the Auric Wall and humans can only handle one Wind of Magic at a time, it drove him a little insane and Vlad gave him a necromantic book, he used the undead to reinforce his lines but then the elector of hochland found out and rode away to tell the Emperor, gelt intercepted him though and put his hands up to calm the situation however an outrider with the Elector count thought he was casting something and opened fired hitting Gelt which made him lose control, his skeletons guardians tore the outrider apart and was about to kill the elector count when gelt finally gained control but he realised to late the damage is done and he lets the skeleton decapitate the elector count. Btw the idea for the Auric Wall actually came from a Lahmian vampire sent by Nefarata.

Gelt think there's a shapeshifter killing people, it's what caused the original breach in the wall him a long with the Ar Ulric investigate, the Ar Ulric stays close to Valten and Huss, he sends letters to Gelt telling him he thinks Valten is the shapeshifter.

Karl Franz is going to present Valten with Ghal Maraz and Gelt thinks Valten is going to assassinate him, he turns up and warns the Emperor but is ordered away, he raises undead to defend himself and the Emperor, turns out the shapeshifter was atually the Ar Ulric and it was the tzeentch daemon the Changling. He burns half of Ludwig Schwarzhelm and kills a lot of Reiksguard as he attempts to assassinate Karl Franz, however Valten comes out of no where and beats the heck out of the Changling. Turns out the Changeling was always Ar-Ulric, even during the skirmish prior the changling even helped Valten previously to fight the greater daemon of nurgle because the changling didn't want nurgle to get all the reward for his scheme. It was the Changling who suggested to Gelt to construct the wall of bone under the guise of one of his students as well.

Gelt is forced to flee and ends up returning to Vlad Von Carstein. There's loads more like the "nameless" who is mind controlling the eastern line of the Auric Wall and it's defenses to masks the fact Vlad had basically wiped out the defenses and took it's place.

There's just so much. The Auric wall fails as the holy priests under the guidance of the new Grand Theogonist refuse to help power it due to the fact Gelt is not a heretic (most of the gold order get barbecued by the witch hunters) Gelt is replaced by the leader of the Amber Order. The wall comes down and the forces of chaos attack, daemons and mortal servants. Crom descends and ends up fighting Valten and Huss, Valten kills Crom by caving his head in. Vlad and Valten then go on to fight the greater daemon nurgle as does Kurt Helborg who was having dreams that he would die to the creature (He doesn't though). Walach Harkon returns after having been trapped north of the wall, he's turned to Khorne and ends up throwing the Emperor out of the sky and badly wound both him and his mount. Vlad ends up killing Walach by taking over his bone dragon which tears Walach in half. The Empire however lose the battle and are forced to retreat.

I'm getting so muddled up I don't know what I've written and what I haven't lol So many are getting killed.

*Lots of crazy stuff*
... umm... I don't... I don't really know where to even begin.

So let's uh, tally this up;

Undead
-Nagash has been resurrected by Arkhan the Black and Mannfred von Carstein by sacrifcing several important figures including Aliathra the Everchild and Volkmar the Grim. He then resurrects Vlad von Carstein.
-In order to achieve this resurrection Mannfred and Arkhan gathered the artefacts of Nagash, along the way Arkhan had to kill Heinrich Kemmler who turned to Chaos and Anark von Carstein who tried to murder him, and Mannfred killed Warlord Feskit of Mordkin and Markos von Carstein. Meanwhile Elize von Carstein has killed Cicatrix the Beautiful.
-Once Nagash is resurrected he binds the Undead to his will, including Neferata. He then assaults Karak Azul and is responsible for the deaths of Thorek Ironbrow and King Kazador. He then finds either the tomb of Valaya or the actual Ancestor Goddess herself and drains her magic from her, meaning the Dwarfs are down an Ancestor God.
-Zacharias the Everliving is killed for trying to bargain with Nagash as is Melkhior. Dieter Helsnicht however is smart and bends the knee.
-Nagash and co then march on Nehekhara and wage war with the Tomb Kings. Using Arkhan as a trojan horse Nagash sneaks into the city inside the captured Arkhan, while Krell is possibly killed for good, and manages to get out of Arkhan's body and start causing chaos. Settra meanwhile tries to find the Destroyer of Eternities but can't because the Skaven have told Apophas about it and he stole it. Nagash and Dieter Helsnicht start a ritual that allows Nagash to go into the spirit world and confront Usirian, The Nehekharan God of Death, and kills him and then takes his power, leaving Helsnicht as the Guardian of the Underworld.
-Nagash defeats the Tomb Kings and kills Apophas when the assassin tries to kill him and fails. Khalida bends the knee and Nagash takes his army north to wage war with Chaos, but Settra has survived and someone else is invested in helping him.


The Elves
-Teclis is working with Malekith and is responsible for the Everchild being captured in the first place, in a xanatos gambit to weaken Nagash so that he won't just rush in and get killed fighting Chaos.
-Daemons are swarming all over Ulthuan and Tyrion is leading the defence, he does not know what Teclis has done but it's likely he's going to find out.
-Alarielle is in Athel Loren trying to help Ariel the Mage Queen heal from the dying forest and Oak of Ages.
-Finubar has gone into exile in the Heavenbright tower, trying to figure out what to do about the End Times.
-Eltharion the Grim and Belannaer have been killed by Arkhan the Black and Mannfred von Carstein respectively, and Eldyra of Tiranoc has been turned into an Elf-Vampire by Mannfred.
-Also a Wood Elf raiding party has been teleported to Ulthuan by Lileath herself for reasons unknown.


The Dwarfs
-King Ungrim Ironfist has bested the biggest army of Beastmen in the world led by Malagor the Dark Omen, but 8 out of every 10 Dwarfs in Karak Kadrin are now dead and they must lick their wounds.
-King Kazador and Thorek Ironbrow are dead, and Karak Azul is gone with them. Nagash used this battle to locate either the body of Valaya or the goddess herself and drain her magic. So the Dwarfs are down an Ancestor God.
-Gotrek Gurnisson is in Kislev fighting against the hordes.
-The Underway is apparently filled with Skaven and Goblins, but the Holds have not yet come under attack by them.


Bretonnia
-Mallobaude the Serpent teamed up with Arkhan the Black to unseat King Louen Leoncouer, his father, and killed him in battle. However the Green Knight arrived and killed Mallobaude, then revealed himself to be Gilles le Breton who is now the restored King of Bretonnia.
-La Maisontaal Abbey is gone, plundered by Arkhan the Black. Duke Tancred of Quenelles and Theoderic of Brionne are dead by his forces.
-Morgiana le Fay was turned over to Mannfred by Drycha for reasons unknown, turned into a vampire and ritually sacrificed by Arkhan who has promised to let her rest in peace.
-Bretonnia is still in chaos with half the realm denounced as traitors for supporting Mallobaude and the undead hordes pillaging the ruined provinces.


Wood Elves
-Heinrich Kemmler shattered the Vaults of Winter and let all the bad stuff out. Because of that the Oak of Ages is dying and Ariel the Mage Queen with it. Orion is pissed to hell and taking it out on anything that even comes close to Athel Loren.
-Durthu and the Treekin are walking the razors edge of insanity.
-Beastmen and plague are ravaging the forest, only Orion and the Wild Hunt are holding them back.
-Araloth of Talsyn and his troops have been taken to Ulthuan by Lileath for reasons unknown.


The Skaven
-The Skaven have finally united as a race and have emerged. Tilea and Estalia are gone, devoured and enslaved by the forces of the Under-Empire, and Araby is being besieged above and below by their forces.
-Clan Mordkin has lost it's leadership to Mannfred who killed them and took the Fellblade.
-The Skaven attempted to ensure Nagash's death by informing Apophas of the Destroyer of Eternities but it didn't work out.


Chaos
-Archaon and his forces are kicking ass and taking names all over the planet.
-Vardek Crom is dead, killed by Valten in an ill-fated attack on the Empire.
-Heinrich Kemmler turned to Chaos and has died for it, as did Walach Harkon.
-Valkia the Bloody is besieging Naggarond at the head of a massive army.

-Leitdorf, the Grand Master of the Knights of Sigmar's Blood, is dead along with a good chunk of his order after they attempted to stop Mannfred and Arkhan's ritual.
-Balthasar Gelt has turned to the dark side, attempting to fix something allowed Vlad von Carstein to manipulate him into becoming a necromancer, and an unfortunate incident with the Elector Count of Hochland resulted in him dying so that Gelt's secret can be kept. Gelt then tried to protect the Emperor from an assassin and revealed his new necromantic powers, and has had to flee the Empire because of it. The Witch Hunters went medieval on the Gold Order for it.
-The Changeling attempted to assassinate Karl Franz. Ludwig Schwarzhelm is dead along with half of the Reiksguard, but Valten banished the Daemon. Karl Franz gave him Ghal-Maraz and in battle with Chaos Valten kills Vardek Crom and Karl Franz is badly wounded by Walach Harkon who is then killed by Vlad von Carstein.
-Kurt Helborg is dreaming of his death against a Greater Daemon of Nurgle but has survived an encounter with one during the battle.
-Vlad von Carstein has infiltrated the Empire and is doing god knows what with part of their defences.
-The Amber Order is now leading the other Colleges of Magic since their magic, the Wind of Death, is pretty much ascendant now.


The Beastmen
-The Beastmen under Malagor the Dark Omen have summoned the Great Herdstones across the planet and are just waging war all across the surface of the world for the evulz. But Malagor's own army has been destroyed by Karak Kadrin, Malagor's own fate is unknown.


The Lizardmen
-The Daemons are going medieval on Lustria, and the entire continent is aflame.

The Orcs and Goblins
-Every single Orc in the Badlands has mobilized and they are currently fighting to find out who will be dominant. No word on what the Goblins are doing.

The Ogres
-The Ogres are on the move. No word on where.

Other
-Kislev is gone. The north is ruled by Throgg the Winter King and Archaon's forces, while the south has been annexed into Ostermark. The Tsarina was last seen leading attacks on Chaos forces with her Ungol horsemen troops, but Kislev as a state is dead.


Hell of a lot of stuff is going down. That's for damn sure.

All this happens in this new Nagash book? I don't know much about Warhammer fantasy (I've only read the Black Plague trilogy and a few short stories). This looks like something I would enjoy.

I'll alter the bits that are slightly wrong by adding an edit in bold if that's ok.

... umm... I don't... I don't really know where to even begin.

So let's uh, tally this up;

Undead
-Nagash has been resurrected by Arkhan the Black and Mannfred von Carstein by sacrifcing several important figures including Aliathra the Everchild and Volkmar the Grim. He then resurrects Vlad von Carstein. (Nagash is "cursed" by the curse of Aenarion due to the fact the Everchild is actually the daughter of Tyrion and the Everqueen, this weakens him substantially)
-In order to achieve this resurrection Mannfred and Arkhan gathered the artefacts of Nagash, along the way Arkhan had to kill Heinrich Kemmler who turned to Chaos and Anark von Carstein who tried to murder him, and Mannfred killed Warlord Feskit of Mordkin and Markos von Carstein. Meanwhile Elize von Carstein has killed Cicatrix the Beautiful.
-Once Nagash is resurrected he binds the Undead to his will, including Neferata. He then assaults Karak Azul (Krell and Nefarata make their way to the Gates of Valya's Domin and are confronted by the Karak Azul forces lead by Thorek, he sends help to the king of Azul who arrives as reinforcements) and is responsible for the deaths of Thorek Ironbrow and King Kazador. He then finds either the tomb of Valaya or the actual Ancestor Goddess herself and drains her magic from her, meaning the Dwarfs are down an Ancestor God.
-Zacharias the Everliving is killed for trying to bargain with Nagash as is Melkhior. Dieter Helsnicht however is smart and bends the knee.
-Nagash and co then march on Nehekhara and wage war with the Tomb Kings. Using Arkhan as a trojan horse Nagash sneaks into the city inside the captured Arkhan, while Krell is possibly killed for good, and manages to get out of Arkhan's body and start causing chaos.

Nagash and Dieter Helsnicht start a ritual that allows Nagash to go into the spirit world and confront Usirian, The Nehekharan God of Death, and kills him and then takes his power, leaving Helsnicht as the Guardian of the Underworld.
-Nagash defeats the Tomb Kings and kills Apophas when the assassin tries to kill him and fails. Khalida bends the knee and Nagash takes his army north to wage war with Chaos, but Settra has survived and someone else is invested in helping him. (I personally believe it is the four chaos gods)


The Elves
-Teclis is working with Malekith and is responsible for the Everchild being captured in the first place, in a xanatos gambit to weaken Nagash so that he won't just rush in and get killed fighting Chaos.
-Daemons are swarming all over Ulthuan and Tyrion is leading the defence, he does not know what Teclis has done but it's likely he's going to find out.
-Alarielle is in Athel Loren trying to help Ariel the Mage Queen heal from the dying forest and Oak of Ages.

-Eltharion the Grim and Belannaer have been killed by Arkhan the Black and Mannfred von Carstein respectively, and Eldyra of Tiranoc has been turned into an Elf-Vampire by Mannfred.
-Also a Wood Elf raiding party has been teleported to Ulthuan by Lileath herself for reasons unknown.


The Dwarfs
-King Ungrim Ironfist has bested the biggest army of Beastmen in the world led by Malagor the Dark Omen, but 8 out of every 10 Dwarfs in Karak Kadrin are now dead (It was only 8 in 10 of the army the King had with him, not the hold) and they must lick their wounds.
-King Kazador and Thorek Ironbrow are dead, and Karak Azul is gone with them (They didn't lose the hold, but it is now without a King atm, I don't know if Thorek survived the underground caven the battle was fought in but I'd be surprised). Nagash used this battle to locate either the body of Valaya or the goddess herself and drain her magic. So the Dwarfs are down an Ancestor God.
-Gotrek Gurnisson is in Kislev fighting against the hordes.
-The Underway is apparently filled with Skaven and Goblins, but the Holds have not yet come under attack by them.


Bretonnia
-Mallobaude the Serpent teamed up with Arkhan the Black to unseat King Louen Leoncouer, his father, and killed him in battle (He may yet of survived there is some doubt on whether he was taken off the battle field by his loyal soldiers, or he may be wandering as a zombie). However the Green Knight arrived (in a later battle) and killed Mallobaude, then revealed himself to be Gilles le Breton who is now the restored King of Bretonnia.
-La Maisontaal Abbey is gone, plundered by Arkhan the Black. Duke Tancred of Quenelles and Theoderic of Brionne are dead by his forces.
-Morgiana le Fay was turned over to Mannfred by Drycha for reasons unknown, turned into a vampire (Doesn't say she was a vampire in the book, her throat was cut and blood used for Volmar to stand in) and ritually sacrificed by Arkhan who has promised to let her rest in peace.
-Bretonnia is still in chaos with half the realm denounced as traitors for supporting Mallobaude and the undead hordes pillaging the ruined provinces.


Wood Elves
-Heinrich Kemmler shattered the Vaults of Winter and let all the bad stuff out. Because of that the Oak of Ages is dying and Ariel the Mage Queen with it. Orion is pissed to hell and taking it out on anything that even comes close to Athel Loren.

-The Skaven have finally united as a race and have emerged. Tilea and Estalia are gone, devoured and enslaved by the forces of the Under-Empire, and Araby is being besieged above and below by their forces.
-Clan Mordkin has lost it's leadership to Mannfred who killed them and took the Fellblade. (The fell blade was shattered during Nagash's resurrection. This was because as each time Nagash was resurrected the curse would weaken him more and more, breaking the blade removed that curse and returned his power)
-The Skaven attempted to ensure Nagash's death by informing Apophas of the Destroyer of Eternities but it didn't work out.


Chaos
-Archaon and his forces are kicking ass and taking names all over the planet.
-Vardek Crom is dead, killed by Valten in an ill-fated attack on the Empire.
-Heinrich Kemmler turned to Chaos and has died for it, as did Walach Harkon.

The Empire
-Volkmar is dead, sacrificed to resurrect Nagash.
-Countess Emmanuelle von Liebwitz is dead along with most of the nobles of Nuln after the peasants rebelled. (She was saved by a retired dockwatch captain and shepherded away, he gathered a militia rescued her from, the flames as she was about to be burnt and reclaimed the city's old quarter and held it long enough for the Knight's Griffon and reinforcements from Reikland to arrive and quell the riot.)
-Leitdorf, the Grand Master of the Knights of Sigmar's Blood, is dead along with a good chunk of his order after they attempted to stop Mannfred and Arkhan's ritual.
-Balthasar Gelt has turned to the dark side, attempting to fix something allowed Vlad von Carstein to manipulate him into becoming a necromancer, and an unfortunate incident with the Elector Count of Hochland resulted in him dying so that Gelt's secret can be kept. Gelt then tried to protect the Emperor from an assassin and revealed his new necromantic powers, and has had to flee the Empire because of it. The Witch Hunters went medieval on the Gold Order for it.
-The Changeling attempted to assassinate Karl Franz. Ludwig Schwarzhelm is dead along (he's only very badly burnt on one side) with half of the Reiksguard, but Valten banished the Daemon. Karl Franz gave him Ghal-Maraz and in battle with Chaos Valten kills Vardek Crom and Karl Franz is badly wounded by Walach Harkon who is then killed by Vlad von Carstein.
-Kurt Helborg is dreaming of his death against a Greater Daemon of Nurgle but has survived an encounter with one during the battle.
-Vlad von Carstein has infiltrated the Empire and is doing god knows what with part of their defences.
-The Amber Order is now leading the other Colleges of Magic since their magic, the Wind of Death, is pretty much ascendant now. (The Wind of Death caused most of the Amethyst order to die or become close to death, the college itself crumbled to ruin, when Nagash drew all the Death Magic to Sylvania so he could become an avatar of Death, the Amber Order is the Wind of Beasts)


The Beastmen
-The Beastmen under Malagor the Dark Omen have summoned the Great Herdstones across the planet and are just waging war all across the surface of the world for the evulz. But Malagor's own army has been destroyed by Karak Kadrin, Malagor's own fate is unknown.

(Skarsnik, the Warlord of Eight Peaks his gathering his own Goblin Army, Grimgor is gathering his army further north and the Mad Savage Orc Shaman is gathering an army as well)

The Ogres
-The Ogres are on the move. No word on where. (Mostly west)

Other
-Kislev is gone. The north is ruled by Throgg the Winter King and Archaon's forces, while the south has been annexed into Ostermark. The Tsarina was last seen leading attacks on Chaos forces with her Ungol horsemen troops, but Kislev as a state is dead.


Hell of a lot of stuff is going down. That's for damn sure.

There's some bits I don't know about as they don't appear in the book, like Throgg, Cicatrix the Beautiful and Kemmler breaking open the vaults of winter.

All this happens in this new Nagash book? I don't know much about Warhammer fantasy (I've only read the Black Plague trilogy and a few short stories). This looks like something I would enjoy.
Yeah there's two books, the biggest is solely fluff, the second has rules, scenarios and new characters in to help you recreate the battles from the fluff.

I'll alter the bits that are slightly wrong by adding an edit in bold if that's ok.
Perfectly ok. What new information you've added is interesting, especially the part about Countess Emmanuelle, nice to see that one of the Empire's more progressive rulers has survived.

There's some bits I don't know about as they don't appear in the book, like Throgg, Cicatrix the Beautiful and Kemmler breaking open the vaults of winter.
Uh the bit about Throgg is from the new Gotrek and Felix book. Some new lore tidbits are there, but I didn't post them since they are very spoilery. As for Cicatrix dying and Kemmler breaking the Vaults of Winter, also Morgiana le Fay being turned before she was killed, these were all confirmed in The Return of Nagash by Josh Reynolds, though the former two happened off-screen.

is the new gotrek book good? im stuck on decideing between buying that book or return of nagash.
I haven't read it yet, but thanks to some jagweed on Warseer who can't use spoiler tags I learned one of the most shocking twists in the book, so I decided why the hell not learn the others. I know of a few developments regarding Gotrek, Felix, Ulrika, Throgg the Winter King and one or two others.

There's a lot of detail that goes into the battles in Nehekara, even Luthor Harkon gets in on it when he confronts the Tomb Kings Navy.

Goddamn. Everybody is coming back for this. Very old returning characters;

Heinrich Kemmler
Dieter Helsnicht
Walach Harkon
Luthor Harkon
Melkhior
Zacharias the Everliving
Vardek Crom
Tancred of Quenelles
Theoderic of Brionne

GW are digging out every single character they can for the End Times. Really nice to see that nobody will be forgotten.
