In the Drakwald forest, Luthor Huss, warrior priest of Sigmar, battles to free the denizens of the forest from a plague of the walking dead. As their fates entwine, the two warriors confront a threat that will decide their future, while Huss must face a secret from his past if he is to survive and embrace his destiny as the Hammer of Sigmar.
Few warrior priests are as devout – or as feared – as Luthor Huss. When dark forces rise in the Drakwald forest, Huss unleashes the fury of Sigmar on the corrupt servants of Chaos.
