"You must learn to be cunning, for the slow-witted will be defeated by clever tacticians. You must be ruthless, for the honour-bound will lose the battle before it starts. But above all you must learn to be merciless, for we cannot allow weaklings to thrive while traitors still hold our ancestral lands."
–Warhammer: Dark Elves
Deep in the Worlds Edge Mountains, the Dwarfs prepare for battle. Their underground strongholds once ran the length of the Old World, but the cataclysmic earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that devastated their empire also erased their greatest glories and left them beset on all sides by armies of Orcs, Goblins, Skaven, and Daemons. Still, the Dwarfs are a proud and hearty race, and they are master fighters within tunnels in which they live.
Glory of Days Past introduces a new legend to lead the armies of these doughty and venerable soldiers. It also features a new support to boost the Dwarfs’ early Kingdom-building, a new quest that reinforces their position as the Old World’s pre-eminent miners and engineers, and a new Engineer unit that comes ready to launch Ambushes on unsuspecting foes.
Fans of the game’s other races will find that Glory of Days Past offers them plenty of reasons to cheer, as well. Elite Greenskin Warriors and Cavalry surge forward in an endless tide of violence. Men of the Empire ready to meet them with both Spells and steel, though the forces of Chaos seek to corrupt every army’s mightiest heroes. High Elf Mages seek to protect themselves and their armies by harnessing the Eight Winds, even as their dark kin, the Dark Elves, draw strength from their hatred and malice.
