    Strategy[edit | edit source]

    Wulfhart begins at war with Tlaxtlan and should continue that goal. From there, his campaign can be drawn in multiple directions. The Vampire Coast and Vampire Coast Mutineers are to the East and will continue to destabilize public order with vampiric corruption (this has the benefit of unlocking Hetwig Van Hal and his missions which are predominantly related to the Vampire Coast). To the West are the Savage Orc tribe, Blue Vipers, who can prove a difficult thorn in the side. Their troops will dumpster Empire troops, but with the right Imperial Supply units, they can be beaten. This will also allow you to link up with the New World Colonies who should be your ally for most of the game. Finally, going South leads to Lizardmen and Skaven, notably Itza and Gor-Rok

    Trivia[edit | edit source]

    • The eye getting pierced by arrows on the faction crest is believed to be the one eyed giant that destroyed Markus' home and family in the lore.
