Valnir the Reaper is one of the original Chaos Champions from the earliest editions of Warhammer Fantasy Battles. A sworn servant of Nurgle, he once led the Marauders known as the Tribe of the Crow and became the soul-gathering Champion known as the Reaper of Nurgle before the Great Chaos War. Cut down by Tzar Alexis of Kislev during the final melee of the battle for the Gates of Kislev, he staggered back to his followers and asked to be buried in his homeland. Two centuries later, Nurgle revived Valnir as a twisted unliving abomination, a rotting corpse sustained by Nurgle's dark power. Taking up the Gatherer of Souls again, his very presence bringing pestilence, plague and famine, Valnir the Reaper has stalked the lands of mortal ever since, the Breath of Nurgle made manifest.
