 The land of Cathay is a great and varied mass, from the barrenand sweeping plains of the Eastern Steppes to the hot, humid jungles of the south. Cathay is a capricious and introvertednation, dedicated only to its own survival and the protection of its domains, and the wrath of the Dragon Throne falls fast andfuriously upon any who should threaten it.The Cathayan army is as diverse as its native land. A horde of simple and fairly weak troops is backed up by graceful anddeadly elites. Powerful characters are rallying points in theCathayan army and their fearsome presence in the Cathayan lineis more than enough to strike fear into the heart of most foes.The Cathayan army can represent many forces, from the ill-equipped yet determined militia of Cathayan peasant villages tothe deadly entourage of the Celestial Emperor himself or adiverse mix of both. The martial power of Cathay stems fromwarrior ‘Houses’, martial institutions dedicated to the arts of warand death. Their aspects are as many as the weapons of theworld- from warriors who deal death with mighty blades to litheassassins who disembowel the enemy with razor-sharp daggers.The multitudes of lesser Houses are dwarfed by the three greathouses, the first of the hundred to be created.

 This book is divided into the following sections:
The Empire of the Dragon
This describes the origins and culture of Cathay, its boundariesand the way in which they interact with the other powers of theWarhammer world. It also includes a timeline of events inCathay, stories and other important and interesting pieces of information related to the east.

This sectionalso contains the various special rules that are associated withthe Cathayan army and tactics advice for the budding general.This section also includes conversion guides and a gallery of Cathayan models.
The Army of Cathay
This section contains the full army list of Cathay, includingmagic items and new magic lores, allowing you to create adevastating army of the orient.
Of the East
This section includes some of the mightiest and most exoticcharacters to ever walk the lands of the east as well as a varietyof variant army lists allowing you to field themed armies fromacross the length and breadth of the orient.masters of the blade and martial honor, the Celestial Dragons,inhuman creatures who kill with naught but their living bodies,and the Living Shadows, stalkers of the night and darkness, whoend life with insidious poisons and silent steel. Behind thesemasters of battle come the endless armies of Cathay, teeminghordes of Lowborn commoners and peasants, led and directed bythe mysterious Magistrates, the consort-councilors of theCelestial Emperor himself In battle the army of Cathay is a fragile and temperamental forcethat is difficult control and almost impossible to master yetdeadly when wielded by the subtle hand. The many dark forcesthat threaten it have caused the Empire of the Dragon to developa style of battle that changes with the winds, flowing around theenemy, destroying them with impunity and retreating like thetide. The warriors of Cathay fight in a completely different wayto those of the Old World and their generals cannot rely onsolidity and strength. Cathay does not shatter the enemy with ahammer; it reaches in, subtly, and plucks out the foe’s stillbeating heart with the force of lightning, leaving the still warmcorpses of its foes to sink into the bloody soil.
