The raids are made easier because Nurgle has waxed greatly in power, even poisoning Taal and allowing him to fuck the Old World over harder than he ever has before.

Don't listen to these negative comments the book is superbly written and keeps you on your feet the whole time. The reason the negative comments is because you know how it is This is a DARK book you have been warned as this one is coming from the point of view of bad guys which most people find disturbing or are too wimpy to comprehend it all.
Love this book. This is a terrific read and the writing is skillful and believable. I loved the character development of both the antagonists as well as the protagonists and I felt sad for the deaths of some of the characters as you just want to like them and hope they survive but know their demise is integral to the plot of the story.
Really fun and tight read. Of all the End Times novels, this one actually works and does justice to the source material. Well crafted and excellent read. Amazing title. Despite many in the community disliking the end times series it has been epic as ever. Highly recommend. I was disappointed in the quality of writing. The characters were one dimensional. I admit i only made it around pages in put i can only deal with so many characters that are big and strong and the best at everything.
Immortal characters that make stupid decisions as if they are children. I put it down it failed to grab me. I liked all of the prior Nagash books. If you like brain candy then i guess that is what this is.
I have been reading really good authors lately so maybe that is the hang up. I might try it again over the summer.

To try and keep up the narrative and let Chaos gain some ground GW decided to write their own version where Archaon somehow managed to appear outside the gates of Middenheim despite having not been able to break out of his starting area while the Tomb Kings apparently just screwed off back to Nehekhara.
Even THIS battle he lost. Rather than have the Empire triumph over the Warriors of Chaos, GW wrote a story in which a single Orc warboss sneak attacked Archaon with a headbutt to the dick and thereby defeated the entire chaos army. For End Times GW selected more characters as movers and shakers while in Storm each faction was more or less represented only by a few characters some like the High Elf leader Sea Lord Aislinn just being an excuse to get the army into the event and every faction was fully involved in at least one book ALMOST down to the last named character many most ALL of whom die.
Major characters were killed constantly some people believe George R. Martin to be the new writer for GW the way most characters die, but we're not sure if GW is Awesome to do something like that , others resurrected or brought back into modern fluff for the event. Butthurt and excitement was known throughout the land at each reveal.
On the chopping block was every special character from 8th edition who did not have a model and even some who did right up until the finale where rocks fell and everyone died. Asuryan, Isha, Kurnous, Lileath, Khaine, and others those being the only confirmed ones escaped the destruction of the last world, and in their own ways sought to protect this one.
Where the Old Ones fit into the whole thing is unknown, as are deities like Morr and Shallya. After the death of literally every other Elf god a few by her design , Lileath sets her plan in motion to create the next world by sending her favorite mortal and lover Araloth to become the new Asuryan as well as their children to be the rest of the pantheon as well as Eldyra who may or may not be an Elf Vampire now who begins by establishing a proper Elf afterlife with souls of Elves from this universe to keep the next world safe from Slaanesh to a degree we NOT Eldar , and sent all the Bretonnians she showed favor on because-SURPRISE-Lileath is the Lady of the Lake to become the next human pantheon.
She then shacks up with the former king of Bretonnia love CAN bloom, but only in the face of death and prepares to rip Slaanesh's throat out on the way down This world however may have been destroyed, as Lileath loses contact with it before the final battle of the old world.
The books add new stuff to the game, from special scenarios to new rules, even new units or completely new armies. Nagash a part of vanilla Warhammer Fantasy, making the combo armies and all new rules and rule updates legitimate. End Times: Khaine also included the detail that any player in possession of a copy of End Times: Khaine may force the players to use the magic rules from the book, making you hate people with dosh to throw around even more.
Archaon, as previously stated, made the rules a complete free-for-all in terms of what models you can afford. The Chaos Gods ravaged the world until they became bored and focused on other Warhammer worlds, and the Warhammer Fantasy setting ended with a "mysterious figure" taking hold of the last speck of light and finding the core of a new world.
With that on the very last page, every army in Warhammer Fantasy at once was squatted until further notice. Each End Times release made sweeping changes to both the lore and rules of the game.
The competitive scene were particularly divided at the time of release: It was assumed that official GW events would use the End Times rules though that was barely the case, as a new setting and game soon replaced it. Non-official events shrugged and kept using the basic rules for he most part - the End Times books were expensive and unwieldy, and, if you ask some people , filled with issues and inconsistencies.
Which, as you probably know, never happened. If you got beaten over the head with a mallet and suddenly got the idea to play End Times nowadays Well good luck at least. Most people have moved on to either Age of Sigmar or to one of the several fanmade Warhammer Fantasy rulesets, with none of them wishing to look back to these rules.
End Times fluff was thought to be the last that "Ward Save" had ever written for Games Workshop prior to his departure, though he has since returned.
In particular the bulk of End Times: Khaine was written by him, using the 8th Edition buildup in the new trinity of Elf Army Books he wrote. As one would expect, Skub has been flying non-stop.
Nagash book, arguably the best received and least skubtastic of the set. Note that there are many contradictions between the novels and the core events in the army books. The Black Library books were meant to cover another side or other plots from the army book, and thus it's difficult to know what is canon and what is not; for example, the writer of the Khaine novel assumed that Eldyra had become a Vampire and had Mannfred refer to her as his kin, when in actuality she had become the avatar of Ereth Khial, the Elf goddess of death.
Gav Thorpe said in interviews that the Black Library writers are given bare bones summary of the events of the army book and expected to make up the rest. When further pressed about why Elves, a race on the verge of extinction, can lose what amounts to millions of lives while still having a sizable army he revealed that Games Workshop lore does not utilize number logic explaining the constant "all the Dark Elves deplete their forces against the High Elves but are ready to attack again one generation later at full strength" lore ; there is as many casualties as the story needs to sound impressive, and do not reflect any concrete lore about population.
Deaths in the books of the End Times. Those with an asterisk are only introduced in the books, so don't worry too much about them.
Some are explained by new GW author Josh Reynolds. However Games Workshop, displaying their usual tact, grace and regard for the fans, have declared everything Josh says outside the novels and armybooks non-canon and made him shut up. Regardless, in lieu of other answers, consider what Josh says canon until proven otherwise.
Note it's unclear how "permanent" death is for these ones, since the usual fluff is "kill a daemon in the mortal realm, they get thrown back to the Realm of Chaos", hence banishment is a more appropriate word. By book V everyone dies aside from those who have fled the world or ascended to daemonhood, except for one single being who was once a man i.
Sigmar , who manages to come to a new world and performs a miracle of some sort. And this story shall also be told With 3 of the incarnates as confirmed survivors despite having their magic ripped away, it is revealed that the others survived as well and became gods in the new realm. In case you haven't already notice, The End Time has a pretty big collection of character's irony end as well as the usual irony.
In fact, this entire event might as well be a lulzy dark comedy play directed by Cegorach. The End Times was released over time as a set of ten books. The odd-numbered books are the plot ones, explaining the narrative and the campaigns involved as the world progressively goes further to hell.
The even-numbered books have rules for new environments, new characters, new armies, and missions based on events in the story. The first of the End Times saga, it lays down the general basis of how bad it's going. Archaon's making another push and plowed Kislev, the Fire Mouth and every other volcano in the Ogre Kingdoms erupted at once, Skaven stopped backstabbing mostly to start gathering, and Arkhan and Mannfred are busy gathering ancient relics and sacrifices of divine personage to resurrect Nagash while battling both each other over Mannfred's attempts at manipulation and Gelt's Wall of Faith.
Kemmler tries early on to convince Arkhan to join Chaos so he can actually take control of his destiny, but Arkhan's loyalty literally transcends death, so Kemmler gets blown to bits. They all fail, for various reasons, except for Eltharion's party. They put the hurt on Mannfred's forces but just arrive too late and Eltharion gets turned to dust by Arkhan right before the latter offs Aliathra.
Nagash himself returns to the world and rips the Wind of Death from the vortex to bind it to himself, but fails and binds it to Sylvania with the side effect of raising the dead across the world and giving everyone the ability to use Necromancy.
Mannfred realizes he underestimated Nagash and reluctantly bends the knee.
When Nagash returns, he realizes that he has the Curse of Aenarion on him Since Aliathra isn't really Finubar's daughter but Tyrion's , and thus can't be a god He still has enough power to resurrect Vlad and grant his Mortarchs the Dread Abyssals and Morghasts. While this is happening, Neferata takes a leaf from Lara Croft and decides to go robbing a Dwarf stronghold to get something to keep her hide out of the fire when Nagash comes calling.
It doesn't end well as the Goblins who are also robbing the place prove to be real sneaky and Neferata's gotten rusty as a front-line commander. Her underestimating them and a rogue chimera attack leads to her almost getting killed. She only gets saved thanks to Nagash's resurrection releasing a massive shockwave of dark magic that heals all her injuries and Krell arrives with an army to keep an eye on her so that she doesn't go traitor.
They eventually get through to the loot and only retrieve it after Thorek Ironbrow overloads his anvil and blows up the entire stronghold. Neferata and Krell survive but much of their armies are destroyed.
