"Ostermark is like a miniature of the Empire, a league of free and independent towns relying on each other for mutual security. We have to—no one else in the Empire cares a fig about us."

—Chancellor Wolfram Hertwig, Elector Count of Ostermark[1]

Overview[edit]

Ostermark is a minor Empire faction first introduced in Total War: Warhammer. It is led by Wolfram Hertwig and is situated in the north-eastern parts of the Empire.

Description[edit]

The League of Ostermark is a major and late-founding Imperial province that lies at the most north-eastern corners of the Empire of Man. Though having existed during the founding of the Empire, the League itself was formed out of the chaos of the late 19th century, when their former capital of Mordheim was struck by a comet of tremendous size. The resulting destruction of the province's central goverment and the death of the ruling family led the remaining towns and villages of the lands to band together and form a new semi-democratic government which would later become known as the League of Ostermark.

Being the homeland of the ancient Ostagoths of Sigmar's time, the territories of Ostermark, which is often remarked as the Empire's "East March" is considered a highly fertile if not hostile landscape. Ostermark is at the very frontiers of the Empire, surrounded on three sides by Kislev, Sylvania and the Worlds Edge Mountains. Neverthless, the people of Ostermark are a valiant breed, and through determination, Ostermark has survived the onslaught of invasion since its founding.[2]

Confederation Message[edit]

This message is a part of the confederation offer played when their Fealty level with you reaches 10.

A sombre, bleak land to the east, Ostermark has long been an avenue into the Empire for invaders, as well as Imperial armies on the march north or into the World's Edge Mountains. Being so close to Kislev, Ostermarkers are sometimes accused of sharing the Kislevites' binge-drinking customs.
