In the north of the world the forces of Chaos gather, awaiting their moment to strike. At their head is the Everchosen, the warrior who will lead the final, cataclysmic assault that will usher in the End Times and the reign of the Ruinous Powers. But he was not always thus - he was once a man, a devout servant of the warrior-god Sigmar. What could cause such a soul to fall to the worship of the Dark Gods? What dark events could have put a knight of the Empire on the path to becoming the harbinger of the world's end? And just who was the man who will become known to all as Archaon?

It's a truly epic saga that brings all the forces of the Adeptus Mechanicus – from the humble Skitarii Rangers to the towering Titan God-Machines – into a massive conflict with the fate of worlds in the balance. And there's a scene involving robots and a Thunderhawk that has to be read to be believed.
Archaon - the former templar of Sigmar now dedicated to the Ruinous Powers - continues his quest to claim the six great treasures of Chaos and bring death to the world as the Everchosen of the gods. As he travels the world - from the southern Chaos Wastes to the verdant lands of Bretonnia - Archaon faces unimaginable perils and devastating betrayals. And all the while, Be'lakor, the first daemon prince, plots and awaits his chance to destroy the would-be Everchosen and claim his mantle as Lord of Chaos and harbinger of the End Times.
Archaon really knows how to put on a show. And that show is the End Times. He's got killer weapons and an attitude to match. Astride the steed of the apocalypse, and at the head of the army to end all armies, it's no wonder that he's the ultimate Warhammer villain.
