Objective: Become the Champion Of The Gods by defeating all other player’s Chaos hero models

Story: Several weeks ago you began feeling a desire to leave your tribesmen and travel into the east. As the weeks passed the compulsion grew to a point where you could no longer resist the urge. As you walk eastward away from your tribe you begin to feel a tingle of something powerful growing within you. Several days you wander towards the horizon as snow storms batter your cold skin, but something deep inside feels warm… hot even, to the point where you can’t even feel the winter around you. As you close on the mountains that used to be so distant, you notice colorful lights dancing in the sky over a desolate snow-covered ruin. You step up to the open arch of the ruin and notice several pairs of fresh snowy footsteps on the stone floor inside. Stepping through the doorway you feel a sudden burst of power explode through your veins as a voice in your head echoes “There can be only one!”
