Helped unite the Empire against a common threat.
Creator of Necromancy and Vampire Counts.

Works to advance all orc kind rather than single tribe.
Prophet of Gork and Mork.
Leads Greenskins into battle, conflict is main theme of greenskins. Also has a comedy aspect
(Already a lord but FLC and no other god associated character, Skarnsik and Grimgor are already in game and only avat of one of the two gods.)

Believed he was emissary of the gods to combat the spread of man, talked to gods in trance after fight.

(he dead but chaos champions can be resurrected by gods)
Skreech Verminking (Skaven)
Created by Horned rat merging all of the council of 13 into one being, including all great clans
Given horned rats power
Described as the ultimate scavenger and constantly plotting whcih is Skaven theme.
(Thanquol also has potentially since he has ordered all clans and his actions are more agent like than lord like).
Tullaris Dreadbringer/ Ritual to become Avatar of Khaine? (Dark Elves)
Khaine is god of Murder, sword of khaine led to the sundering and the creation of the Dark Elves. Works iwth Helebron but not loyal to her over Khaine who sis true master.
Malekith claims to be mortal avatar of khaine but Tulaaris true herald of Khaine.
The theme of murder and bloodshed is Dark Elves theme. Also not loyal to Hellebron or Malekith so theme of betrayal?
(shadowblade not associated with god, can buff shades as lord aswell)
Caledor Dragontamer (High Elves)
Not dead, just stuck in Vortex which is centre of Ulthalon and important for all world.
Proclaimed Anarion champion of Asuryan (head god) and used vauls anvil (another god) to help make armour for him.
Asociated with magic and dragons, themes of High Elves. Also rejected sword of Khaine unlike Anarion and tried tos top him using it.
(Anerion could be used as a legendary hero but he is dead, that said since he used the sword of khaine and was morathis husband and Malekiths father he could even be a Dark Elves legenary hero.
Apophas (Tomb Kings)
Prince of Numas, has worked with other lords such as Settra attacking Chaos.
