- Gotrek & Felix Timeline :
- I am, as probably many other Warhammer “people”, a great fan of Slayer Saga. Adventures of slayer Gotrek Gurnisson and his human companion Felix Jaeger (who just tries to survive with the slayer and record his mighty doom one day). Those who haven’t read these books I recommend reading them very much. They have great background information and also good Warhammer “feeling” in them.There is always the BUT – But, when does these adventures actually occur? Well, there are many mistakes in the books because changes done by the GW during the course of time. Warhammer world and it’s history have changed since the time the original author William King started with the Trollslayer (first book) stories. I think William King actually mentioned in some forum that he could do some changes to the books when they were published again (new versions). But these changes were not done by The Black Library. Some of these mistakes are later corrected by Nathan Long in his books. Either way. I started my own little “Timeline” fan-project to but these adventures in the current Timeline. The idea is actually make MOST of the things right. So, here’s that project. Also – There isn’t really any ages given to the characters (or years they were born) so I made them myself. But there are couple of exceptions, like Gotrek. I found from various locations, that his birth-year might have been 2370, but few facts in Orcslayer make this one little difficult (check from the notes more). There is one mention about Felix age in the Orcslayer also. There he wonders how many years has he traveled and is he now actually 40 or 42. In the Elfslayer his father, Gustav, says that his age is 42. Also idea of Ulrika’s age is given in Manslayer. Some other dates (years) in the books are not that accurate either (like: “They were on their expedition some twenty-years ago…”).

- Additional information Wikipedia : Gotrek & Felix.
- And also from Wikia : Warhammer.
- Gotrek & Felix Timeline (Revised)
This timeline is my own invention and that why I call it “revised”. Original novel timeline given in White Dwarf dates Trollslayer to end of 2400 and the Chaos-invasion against Praag 2500 or 2501. Another mistake or variation is in Children of the Horned Rat (WFRP2 sourcebook) where Skaven-invasion against Nuln is told to happen in 2514.Important note! In 2004 Games Workshop published Storm of Chaos -campaign. Gotrek & Felix novels Orcslayer, Manslayer, Elfslayer, Shamanslayer and Zombieslayer are based on that event. In 2014 Games Workshop published The End Times -campaign, which reboots Storm of Chaos events. So, these books may have little different information, what happens in The End Times timeline (like Archaon’s attack to Middenheim, which doesn’t happen in 2522).

- Notes About the Timeline:
Things that are correct here:
1): First publishing year of the Felix books is wrong. In the books it is 2505, but with this timeline adventures hardly have started in that time. But it is mentioned [Elfslayer] that when Felix actually checks his books, he notices also this mistake. Books have been published by Otto Jaeger without Felix approval [Manslayer] and probably Altdorf Press made little mistake when printing the first book, and maybe the publishing year is actually 2515 (as it is marked in the timeline). Second publishing year of Felix books is right.
2): Karl Franz is emperor during the “Window Tax Marches”. Crowned 2502. Probably just before this accident [Trollslayer].
3): Countess Emmanuelle von Liebwitz is Elector Countess and ruler of Nuln during the Skaven-invasion in 2504. Takes the title 2503. Also she is 19 years old [Skavenslayer].
4): Leos von Liebwitz is alive and well-known deadly blade during the happenings in the Skavenslayer which happens in this timeline 2504. Maybe little young, but still. [Skavenslayer].
5): Games Workshops WFB: 6th Edition Vampire Counts (Army Book) has small mention about Gotrek & Felix. Pair has “little” meeting with Mannfred von Carstein in 2503 (Felix records this in his journals). Bad-Old Mannfred is resurrected again during this time? This actually fits nicely in my timeline. But, in later editions of Vampire Counts, the year is now 2505. 2505 is common mistake in the published journals of Felix, so it could be mistake also that many believe that Gotrek & Felix (have claimed to) meet Mannfred von Carstein in the year 2505 and in the Drakenhof Castle, where they actually fought with another vampire, Adolphus Krieger.
6): Genevieve novels (by Jack Yeovil): Characters are mentioned both ways. Felix Jaeger knows famous Detlef Sierck, which in here is very much possible. Drachenfels date is based original Warhammer Companion (WFRP1 Sourcebook) information:
Detlef makes Drachenfels in 2505 and before that is allready famous for his Sigmar play (because that play he is thrown to Mundsen Keep) and probably some other plays.
In Beast in Velvet -novel the battle of Praag is well-known. Cathay ambassadore Dien Ch’ing was in Praag and saw Gotrek there. Beast in Velvet happens 2508 winter in my timeline (in novel it is stated both three or four years after Drachenfels – I’ll go for three). So, basicly attack against Praag has just happened couple of years ago and possible in this timeline.
Warhawk story fits here also (happens year after Beast in Velvet –novel). Gotrek & Felix are back in Altdorf after some adventuring since Albion [Giantslayer].
7): Gotrek was member of infamous Prince Vastariens Vastarien’s Vanquishers. It is not said when this happened or how long he was among them, but Prince Vastarien died 2477, so it probably was somewhere around 2460-2477. I’ll go for 2470-2477 [Jack Yeovil’s Warhawk story].
8): Snorri is telling about “Grim Winter” in the beginning of Giantslayer. I use year 2448 for this one, because that is one of the only harsh winters mentioned in the official source (there is mention about that in the Sigmar’s Heirs and Marienburg: Sold Down the River) [Giantslayer].
9): Some stories, like City of the Damned are hard to fit in. Yet, for example City of the Damned is in My Travels with Gotrek, Vol.VI and it seems to happen after the attack of Azhag the Slaughterer. So, I place it to year 2513 and just before Gotrek & Felix depart from the Empire for a long time [City of the Damned].
10): In Orcslayer and Manslayer Felix notes that he has followed Gotrek couple of decades or that some thing have happened twenty-years ago (few times actually). Well, Felix has followed Gotrek in this Timeline since 2502, so in 2522 it has been 20 years. Other things are more or less about twenty-years ago. One thing that must be noted here is that pair has been in the Empire in 2509 (Warhawk story). That may have been short visit altough. We don’t really have much details of pairs movement after Giantslayer, even many stories seem to happen between Giantslayer and Manslayer [Orcslayer, Manslayer].
11): Gustav (younger) Jaeger is 17 years old in Manslayer (2522), and he was born year after Skaven Invasion in Nuln. So, this is now right also [Manslayer].
12): Heinz, keeper of Blind Pig Inn in Nuln, was originally Halberdier and rose to the rank of Captain during Karl Franz’s campaigns. He retired after he was stamped on by a Bretonnian charger (leg was crushed) at the Battle of Red Orc Pass. I’ll assume his career as soldier ended right before Skavenslayer (was few years Captain during the reign of Emperor Karl-Franz) and then he started his inn. Also it seems both Gotrek and Hamnir were old companions to him and served same units even Gotrek and Hamnir were not anymore friends [Skavenslayer, Manslayer].
13): In Manslayer Felix mentiones, that last time they saw Ulrika she was 21 or 22 years old. But it is Ulrika that mentiones actually later, that she was 19 years old. This probably was during the time of Daemon-, Dragon-, and Beastslayer [Manslayer].What is still wrong:
1): Graf of Middenheim is Berthold Todbringer (Boris father) in 2506, not Stephan Todbringer. But also same year power changes and Boris becomes the Graf [Daemonslayer].
Explanation: Maybe Old Boris is actually Boris Stephan Todbringer or his father is Berthold Stephan Todbringer.
2): Ice-Queen isn’t Tzarina in 2505 (her father dies in 2517)! She is actually very young (12 years old). Kislev is ruled by her father Tzar “Radii Bokha” Boris Bokha [Dragonslayer, Beastslayer].
Explanation: It is possible that future Tzarina is all ready (even her young age) famous for her natural magical powers and actually joins the fight in Praag, while her father “Radii Bokha” is somewhere else and joins Praag little later (actually after the invasion). Easiest way would be actually adjust her age little (add three or four years).
3): In Orcslayer Gotrek tells other Slayer that he has been seeking his doom for eighty years. Well, he hasn’t been Slayer that long. In Daemonslayer we are told that first expedition to Chaos Wastes (the unsuccesful) was done 20 years before and Gotrek wasn’t yet Slayer. So, he has been Slayer during the Orcslayer about 35 years.
Explanation: Maybe just mistake, or maybe Gotrek’s been little suicidal for longer than his Slayer career. He seems to have lived very long time mercenary life.
4): In Manslayer (which happens during SoC) Malakai Makaisson mentiones that Gotrek & Felix have been away for 17 years. Well, in this Timeline, after my little changes based on the Manslayer, this actually fits. But next, in Manslayer, Ulrika mentiones few times that it has been 18 years.
Explanation: I think it is actually Ulrika that is wrong.
5): In Orcslayer Gotrek and Hamnir have “little” argument and Gotrek mentiones that it all started during the years they travelled together (actually this argument probably ended their travels together and friendship). He actually mentiones it happened hundred years ago in Tilea. Hamnir and Gotrek travelled together about 50 years. That would mean that Gotrek’s & Hamnir’s friendship started about 150 years ago, but Gotrek’s birth-year is 2370, which doesn’t really fit the case. In Manslayer mercenary Heinz (keeper of Blind Pig tavern in Nuln) also remembered Hamnir and fought with both of them. It seems they all were friends and Heinz just can’t be hundred years old!
Explanation: I think Gotrek and Hamnir started their adventures 100 years ago and ended 50 years ago. So, there is mistake in that “hundred years ago” comment.
6): In the WFB:Vampire Counts 6th Edition it is mentioned that Gotrek & Felix meet Mannfred Von Carstein in 2503, but in the 7th Edition this has changed to 2505 in the timeline.
Explanation: I think later Edition timeline is wrong.
7): In the White Dwarf 330 there is legendary story of the Battle of Cragmere where Gotrek Gurnisson, Josef Bugman and Grombrindal (the White Dwarf) meets. Best place, currently, is to place this even before Gotrek meets Felix Jaegar. But one mistake GW made miniatures about three heroes and Gotrek has his eyepatch already even his eye is lost during the Trollslayer.
Explanation: Miniature has mistake (if any other better date doesn’t come by).
8): In Orcslayer, Manslayer, Elfslayer and Shamanslayer there is talk about Archaon’s invasion and Siege of Middenheim (example: Snorri was in Middenheim). This is based on the information of Storm of Chaos -campaign. In 2014 Games Workshop rebooted the SoC events, when they created The End Times -campaign. In this timeline Archaon has not made his invasion against the Empire in 2522 and there has not been any siege against the Middenheim.
Explanation: But, in 2522 there is major Chaos Incursion against the Empire. Based on the The Enemy Within (WFRP3 campaign) this is event known as “the Spring Driving” made by Warlord Surthra Lenk. In this attack there is long siege against Wolfenburg. Snorri and other slayers could have been there.
9): In Zombieslayer there is The Hammer of Judgement, which is said to be carried first by Frederick the Bold, the great-grandfater of our beloved Emperor (which would be Karl Franz). Problem here is, that great-grandfather would be Emperor Matthias. Altough there seems to be that way named hero in the Empire also.
Explanation: Either this “great” title just means older ancestor or the Frederick the Bold is actually great-grandfather of the ruler of Castle Reikguard (which in the book is Graf Falken Reiklander).
10): Battle of Hauptmansburg. Gotrek & Felix travel to Hauptmansburg where the Empire army, leaded by Karl Franz himself, is ready to meet huge greenskin army. Other Dwarf-Slayers are there also, including infamous Snorri Nosebiter. The Empire forces triumph and Karl Franz himself saves the life of Felix Jaeger. Snorri Nosebiter dies in the battle, but Gotrek survives.
Explanation: Well, this is just one of those stories, that never happened.

Age of Reckoning doesn’t happen in the official timeline. It is alternative timeline/event dating about the same time as Storm of Chaos. So, that why it doesn’t appear in the timeline.

Death’s Dark Shadow (1991, WFRP1 adventure). Gotrek & Felix can be optional NPC’s or have some cameo appearance in the campaing. Timeline idea is their adventures in the Border Princes.
Doomstones Campaign vol.3: Death Rock (1990, WFRP1 adventure). Gotrek & Felix can be optional NPC’s. No timeline given. For their own Timeline this adventure fits best end of 2503, 2504 or after 2507. One possibility is (if you want to run adventure closer to SoC), that it happens during their trip to Empire from Karak Hirn in 2522.
Realm of Chaos: The Lost and The Damned (1990, WFRP1 sourcebook). Small story from William King. Gotrek & Felix travel in the far north (close to the Chaos Wastes) and face Chaos Dwarfs.
- Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat: Gotrek is a slayer and thanquol is a grey-seer. So I would put it somewhere in William King’s books. I think before skavenslayer, because Thanquol is in the game and he doesn’t mention Gotrek and/or Felix.
