Hochland is a minor Empire faction introduced in Total War: Warhammer.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Grand Barony of Hochland is a major and founding Imperial Province that lies to the north-central lands of the Empire of Man. The lands of Hochland, like its neighbor Ostland, has within its boundaries parts of the Middle Mountains and vast tracts of untamed wilderness. Because of this, is often compared to its larger and wealthier northern neighbor. "Ostland's little brother" is a term often used, although not in Hochland.[1a]

Despite their backwards reputation, the people of Hochland are no less sturdy nor skilled than their neighbors in terms of military capability, with many of the best archer and marksmen regiments with the Empire's military having been born within the province itself. Like their brethren in neighboring provinces, the Hochland people are also quite resourceful, a trait that is often learned from a young age to all sons of a Hochland family. As well as being resourceful, the people of Hochland are also amazing hunters and trackers, a trait that originated from their former tribal traditions as the Cherusen people.[1]
