THRONES OF DECAY

NURGLE
TAMURKHAN, THE MAGGOT LORD
Tamurkhan, the Maggot Lord and Champion of Nurgle, is one of the greatest Chaos warlords to ever afflict the known world. A mighty leader to some, and a bloated corpse-worm to others, those that stand against Tamurkhan quickly fall under the banner of this bringer of desolation.
As a hard-hitting tank with the strength of an Ogre and the vigour of Nurgle’s greatest combatants, Tamurkhan rides into battle atop his unique Toad Dragon, Bubebolos, to unleash rot on any that dare oppose the Warlord.
Tamurkhan’s crusade across the land is not merely one of destruction or decay, for he amasses a horde of heroic characters as he goes, absorbing the many strengths of those that could not defeat him. These heroic characters, Chieftains, are added to his ever-growing empire once Tamurkhan has displayed his true dominating power, granting the Maggot Lord a suite of champions and warriors for use in his grand crusade.
With enough devoted Chieftains under his wing, Tamurkhan can pursue ultimate victory.

THE EMPIRE

ELSPETH VON DRAKEN
Elspeth von Draken, the Dark Lady of Nuln, is a respected advisor to the Elector Counts and instrumental at keeping the plagues of Nurgle at bay. As a magistrix of the Amethyst Order, the Graveyard Rose may be all that stands in the Maggot Lord’s way.
As a powerful spellcaster, Elspeth von Draken soars across the skies on her Carmine Dragon, with a strong helping of magical mastery under her belt.
Elspeth von Draken is committed to protecting the Empire by any means necessary, and her alliance with Nuln has allowed her to help support the forces of the Empire in a unique way. The true potential of the Empire’s gunpowder units can be unleashed with Nuln’s Imperial Gunnery School, furthering the weaponry of the Empire. To do this, magic and black powder can no longer be separate entities, and instead must work together to ensure the forces of Chaos are kept at bay.
Elspeth's patronage will go a long way in helping to develop the next stage of technological advancement, as she also offers her unique talents to combine her mastery of Death magic into the munitions of the Imperial Gunnery School, creating a combined arms force of Amythest units the foes of the Empire will regret crossing.

DWARFS

MALAKAI MAKAISSON
Having been ejected from the Engineer’s guild after a series of catastrophic malfunctions that cost the lives of many a Dwarf, Malakai Makaisson took the Slayer’s oath and continues to engineer grand machines to this day, assisted by his entourage of Slayers. One day, he hopes to overcome this shame by seeking a glorious death in battle, so at last he may be seen as a true inventor of incredible works, and a legend of his time.
With a fascination for creating grand machines, Malakai is a ranged support character, damaging from afar with his guns, bombs, artillery, and the most deranged of munitions to whittle down his opponents.
Malakai craves nigh-unwinnable battles and fights with mighty foes. As a Slayer, he seeks out these worthy combatants to atone for his sins, but as an Engineer, he sees it as an opportunity to learn new tricks, advance his equipment, and crush all that stand before him in the name of progress.
With Malakai’s Adventures, Makaisson aims to prove himself in combat, or die trying.

NEW UNITS

Command the battlefield from your throne with additional units for Nurgle, the Empire, and the Dwarfs.
Spread decay with the Toad Dragons of Nurgle, set sail as the Empire with the Marienburg Land Ship, and rain destruction from the skies as the Dwarfs with the Thunderbarge.
Plus, further creations await within the Thrones of Decay.

This new fortification system is also present in siege battles and small settlement engagements, and it's probably the biggest change to the overall Total War formula. Capturing points on the map builds up your resources, which you can then spend on fortifying defensible areas. It's a compelling tactical addition, bringing Total War closer to other real-time strategy games where it's not just about wiping out an army, but capturing points, defending them, and using resources wisely. It does, however, also take away from what Total War battles always seemed to be about: careful, tactical positioning within a semi-realistic environment.

A fitting capstone to the trilogy, the story-heavy campaign and an armload of exciting new factions lead Total War: Warhammer 3 to victory.
