[Lore Excerpt] The spirit of a dead Bretonnian could have killed Archaon...

"Baron Lucus of Brilloinne was a sacred Grail Knight of Bretonnia who founded the great Castle of Brilloinne.

Lucus earned great renown as a pious Questing Knight. Travelling across the length and breadth of the Old World, he recovered many cursed items, trinkets and dark artefacts of sorcerous power. Lucus secured these unholy weapons within a sacred Grail Chapel near the shores of Couronne, about which he built a great Castle. For preventing the evil-hearted from wielding these powerful relics, Lucus was found worthy to sup from the Grail, joining the ranks of the Grail Knights and becoming a living saint. Meanwhile, his deeds as a mighty warrior had become legendary as far away as the Empire. Even after the Baron's death, an entire army of Battle Pilgrims attended his chapel night and day.

When the hordes of Archaon arrived in Bretonnia, the Everchosen led his armies to Castle Brilloinne. Archaon had heard of the mighty Lucus as a child, and wished to capture the dark artefacts hidden within his great chapel. During the bloody siege, Archaon duelled against Lucas's young and arrogant grandson. Lucus the Younger was far less skilled than his ancestor, but still managed to survive against Archaon thanks to his Hippogryph. However, the young lord was later slain by a monstrous Slaughterbrute, causing his peasant army to flee in terror and the castle to fall.

When Archaon finally entered Brilloinne's sacred chapel, he realised that he was in a dangerous place. The holy power of Baron Lucus had long infused its grounds, draining Archaon of his potency. The Everchosen felt himself burning with the fires of absolution. His eyes burned to open. His flesh burned within his plate. His mind burned with the hallowed nature of the place. He was only saved when the Slaughterbrute demolished the chapel's foundations with its monstrous fists, reducing the holy place to rubble. Shaking off the draining fury of the chapel's consecration, Archaon left the Baron's legacy as a desecrated ruin..."



One single Slaughterbrute ensured the End Times and all that was to follow. Though imagine what would've happened if Archaon had died there, purged from the world in the light of saint...

    Random evlen godess power >Four chaos gods powers.

    Anyway, I always wonder why people prefer keeping evil artefacts instead of breaking them.

    Not quite what happened, the curseling laid a teap for him and clouded his mind then blasted him into the Chapel with a spell.

    It burned him just like the church of sigmar does and any holy ground, it doesn't stay that he was going to die or that the slaughterbrute saved him.
