Do or Don't - Soulblight Gravelords

Key insights


The resurgence of vampires as intriguing and menacing figures in popular culture is attributed to characters like Dio Brando from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and the depiction of vampires in Warhammer.


Vampires in Warhammer's setting hold significant power and command over other supernatural entities, contrasting with their often flamboyant and dominative portrayal in other media.


The concept of the "Soulblight curse" in Age of Sigmar (AoS) introduces a compelling layer to vampire lore, showcasing their struggle against an inner monstrous nature that eventually overtakes them.


Vampires in AoS maintain a semblance of nobility and control, even as they navigate the challenges of living under Nagash's rule and their own ambitions within the complex societal hierarchy of the undead.


The lore emphasizes the strategic and military prowess of vampires, who lead undead armies in battles that shape the fate of the Mortal Realms, highlighting their role as key players in Warhammer's narrative.


Despite their power and influence, vampires in AoS face the existential threat of the Soulblight curse, a narrative device that adds depth to their characters by portraying them as both powerful and tragically flawed.
