Mammoth Nick Bibby 3rd Edition illustration

A Mammoth from Norsca, by Nick Bibby.[1a]

Mammoths are animals very much like elephants, although larger and somewhat hairy.[1a]


Mammoths were once common creatures in the world, before the Old Ones brought the planet closer to the sun, warming the climate and driving back the frozen wastes. Today, only a few of these huge and majestic monstrosities survive to roam the northern world.[1a]

In Norsca, Mammoths are occasionally hunted, and their mighty tusks presented in tribute to awestruck ambassadors.[1a]

Due to exposure to the raw magic of Chaos, many of the Norscan mammoths have mutated into larger and more aggressive forms, with extra tusks. These creatures are captured as infants and raised by the Norse to serve them, and unleashed on the battlefield as Chaos War Mammoths.[1a]

In the Old World, mammoths exist only within menageries and circuses, where they attract huge crowds.[1a]

The Sky Titans once herded mammoths as domestic animals, on the lower slopes of the Ancient Giant Lands. These herds were slaughtered by the migrating Ogres during War in the Sky.[2a]
