Warhammer Albion - Buddug of the Toulenii



Original Fan Content not GW

Before I begin on the lore I wrote for Albion, I have to say that it is a tremendous amount of thinking going into two things I love. That is, the original Warhammer Fantasy universe, and La Tene culture.
There are many difficulties going into designing Albion so I hope you bear with me and enjoy what is and may be for some time, a work in progress. (and excuse my misspelling of Albion as Alboin as I am a history nerd who mixes names with a Lombard king). The most important aspect I wish to note however is that I have to make them on par, that is, able to fight with some of the other races of the Warhammer world and that is a difficult task.  I designed La Tene plate armour, and wrote in some interesting metals like Archbronze.

Some people don't like that they are on a level as able to fight against other races of the WH world, but I see it as important. Hypothetically if they were made into miniatures this would obviously need to happen, but of course I can only do it lore-wise.

The Toulenii are an Order aligned Albionic tribe that occupy the oppidium of Toulenos' Roost high in the Beast Peaks of Albion. They are most associated with the Great Eagles their elite ride into battle and patrol the Beast Peaks for armies of the (now departed) Chaos demon Belakor marching South from the Citadel of Lead, of course when they are not fighting among the other tribes. Buddug is their chieftain and rides upon the greatest of Great Eagles the Golden One: Andarta (see what I'm doing here). But is sure not to stray West into the homeland of the Giants of Albion. She weilds a spear steeped in magic, and fires magical arrows which are willed to their target.
