The Knights of Sigmar's Blood have a long and proud history. Led by their Grand Master Hans Leitdorf, brother of the Elector Count of Averland, their ranks are filled with the men of noble houses across the Empire. Their selection process is considered extreme even among the other Orders, as each Knight in training must spend a year in study within the church where he is judged by the priests as to his worthiness. 

OrganizationEdit

The Grandmaster of the order is Hans Leitdorf, brother of the late Marius Leitdorf. His second-in-command is Rudolph Weskar, a tyrannical and stubborn warrior. One quirk about the order is that they contain no inner circle knights. However, the unit known as the Brotherhood of Steel was considered the best in the order and generally looked up to.

AppearanceEdit

The Knights of Sigmar's Blood's heraldry is mainly red, while their armor is silver. Most of their shields are mostly red, with the skull of sigmar wearing a laurel wreath. They sometimes contain a yellow hammer. The Brotherhood of Steel has white shields with emblazoned with the letter S and laurels. All of the Knights of Sigmar's Blood carry white lances with black fire on them.

During The End Times, they were attacked by Undead forces led by Mannfred von Carstein and Arkhan the Black searching for Morhikhane, the Black Armor of Nagash at their stronghold of Heldenhame. The Knights of Sigmar's Blood were almost totally obliterated in the battle and their second in command, Rudolph Weskar was killed by Mannfred Von Carstein himself. Hans Leitdorf and the remaining knights died after being frustrated with the High Elves led by Eltharion the Grim accompanied by Princess Elydra and Belanner of the White Tower, and rushing off into a trap devised by Mannfred and Elise von Carstein and dueling the former to the death.
