Ghal Maraz, the Skull Splitter, comes from the mythic ages that predate the awakening of the realms. It is a great weapon of war and trails a twin-tailed comet when swung with sufficient force. Grungni himself mined the starmetal of which Ghal Maraz was forged. Struck with runes of justice, the hammer is bane to Chaos, and only the most powerful of the Dark Gods’ minions can bear to look upon its radiant nimbus. As legends tell, Sigmar first used his hammer to raise mankind from barbaric squalor, wielding its might to unite a kingdom. Foes untold have fallen beneath its mauling blows, and while wielding Ghal Maraz Sigmar was never bested in combat. Yet during the Battle of Burning Skies illusionary magics – and his own impetuous rage – tricked Sigmar into hurling Ghal Maraz into the void, where it was lost for many centuries. Now, at last, the warhammer has been returned to Sigmar, who in turn has passed it on to his greatest champion.
