Cities of Sigmar: Post-Vedra Reformation Military Dynamics

In the aftermath of the Realmgate Wars, the Cities of Sigmar, also known as the Free Cities, emerged as bastions of Order. These cities, strategically built around Realmgates, serve as focal points in the ongoing conflict, marked by a profound transformation post the Vedra Reformation.

Vedra Reformation and Tactical Evolution

The Vedra Reformation stands as a pivotal moment, reshaping the military landscape of Cities of Sigmar. Tahlia Vedra’s innovative defense tactics, born from the crucible of the Battle of Glosson, became the linchpin of the Cities’ resilience. However, the sustainability of this strategy faced challenges due to its labor-intensive nature.
