    INTRODUCTION Welcome to Warhammer: Albion, your indispensable guide to the Misty Isle. This book

    provides all the information youll require to play with an Albion army in games of Warhammer.

    WHY COLLECT ALBION? The mysterious, mist-bound isle of Albion is a

    dangerous place. On the one hand it is a land of endless

    opportunity, the battle-hungry eager to carve a niche

    for themselves into its hallowed ground. On the other it

    is a bleak expanse of moorland full of pitfalls for the

    unwary.

    The army of Albion is filled with barbarian warriors

    and mystical creatures. The core of any Albion army

    comprises nobles in chariots and warbands of warriors

    on foot, screened by youths armed with slings and

    javelins led by the local chieftain. Poorer nobles and

    richer warriors are mounted on hardy native ponies and

    form the cavalry used to both scout and to support the

    noble chariot warriors. Ranks of spearmen and woad-

    painted heroes, droves of scythe-bladed chariots and

    enormous mastodons bred for war emerge from village

    and from dun to follow the Sun Banner of the old High

    King.

    HOW THIS BOOK WORKS Warhammer army books are split into sections, each of

    which deals with different aspects of the titular army.

    Warhammer: Albion contains:

    The Misty Isle. This section introduces the Gaels and their part in the Warhammer world. It includes

    their society and history. You will also find

    information on the island of Albion, the Misty Isle.

    Warriors of Albion. Each and every troop type in the Albion army is examined here. You will find a

    full description of the unit, alongside the complete

    rules for any special abilities or options they

    possess. This section also includes the Artefacts of

    Albion magical artefacts that are unique to the army along with rules to use them in your games.

    Albion Army List. The army list takes all of the characters, warriors, monsters and war machines

    from the Warriors of Albion section and arranges

    them so that you can choose an army for your

    games. Units are classed as characters (Lords or

    Heroes), Core, Special or Rare, and can be taken in

    different quantities depending on the size of the

    game you are playing.

    FIND OUT MORE While Warhammer: Albion contains everything you

    need to play the game with your army, there are other

    books and updates to be found. For the other books in

    THE MISTY ISLE

    From time beyond memory, the isle of

    Albion lay shrouded in mists so dense and

    disorienting that many sailors said they

    were not ordinary drizzle and vapour but

    mists of pure sorcery. Some people, and

    many fine sailors amongst them, said that

    the isle of Albion was nought but mist and

    that the cloud and chill concealed only

    miserable grey water.

    Yet all that time, and it was a long while

    even as Elves reckon time, Albion stood

    amongst the sullen seas hidden beneath its

    vaporous cloak. For century after century

    the sky was not seen, and neither tree nor

    plants grew, except the stubby bog grasses

    that cling to mire and mud. The land was

    sodden beneath a perpetual drizzle, and,

    because the sun's rays never reached the

    ground, it was cold and damp and always

    grey.

    Thus was the ruin of Albion - a land

    polluted by sorcery in the distant Age of

    Magic. A land whose immense menhirs

    and arcane stone circles once served to

    control and contain the gateways between

    the worlds, which to this da
