Pirates of Sartosa is a Vampire Coast faction introduced in Total War: Warhammer II, led by Aranessa Saltspite. Originally a minor faction, Pirates of Sartosa was expanded and made playable with the release of Curse of the Vampire Coast. They are a mix of human and undead pirates who make port at Sartosa, and raid the seas south of the Old World.

Background[edit | edit source]

Queen of the Tides, Aranessa Saltspite is one of the most respected and feared pirate captains of Sartosa. Some say she is the daughter of the sea god Manann himself and he whispers to her to take control of all the world’s oceans. Now, many a sea-bloated corpse washes up against the Swordfysh’s hull, and so the Vampire first mates breathe unlife into them, creating a vast rabble of loyal crew, ready to serve at Captain Saltspite’s command. As part of the living realm rather than the undead, she commands a human pirate crew known as the Sartosa Free Company, otherwise reluctantly sharing control of the denizens of the Vampire Coast.

Crest Design[edit | edit source]

Their crest design comes from the Swordfysh, a ship captained by Aranessa Saltspite in the Games Workshop game Dreadfleet.

Before the DLC[edit | edit source]

The old crest.

Prior to the release of Curse of the Vampire Coast, the faction used Empire units and was led by a generic lord named Gregor Solmann. They were classified as a Southern Realms faction and controlled Sartosa in the Eye of the Vortex campaign (but did not appear in Mortal Empires).
