Carroburg Greatswords End of Times

The Carroburg Greatswords, a unit of Greatswords hailing from Reikland, are one of the most storied and famous regiments in the Empire.[1a]


The fame of the Carroburg Greatswords dates back to the Age of Three Emperors. In 1865, they successfully defended the city of Carroburg, then under the control of Reikland, from the count of Middenland. Throughout the course of the battle, their white uniforms were stained red with blood. Since then, they have worn crimson uniforms in remembrance of that day.[1a]

Today, they fight in the service of Reikland, despite the fact that Carroburg has been reclaimed by Middenland.[1a]

The End TimesEdit

Perhaps the most famous infantry regiment in the Empire, the Carroburg Greatswords had fought to defend the realm for centuries. Ruthless killers, the Carroburg men have felled minotaurs, trolls, giants, even daemons in their storied history. Those fighting under the same colours in Karl Franz's reign were seconded to General Aldred's army, a stout backbone to his force.[2a]

As part of Aldred Van Carroburg's relief troops after the Battle of Marienburg, the Greatswords were utterly destroyed by enemy troops inside the city.[2a]
