The cold legion is an army of dwarf-like creatures that rose from Élivágar – the primordial rivers of ice. They worship Ymir, the first giant, and seek to extinguish all life from cold lands such as polar regions. As such they are only found in such climates. Soldiers in the cold legion are immortal, and those slain rise again by drawing on elemental energy from the icy lands. When the army moves, it unrelentingly destroys all settlements in its path through attrition. The advance of the horde has been halted in the past only through defeating its ranks in a single day, in fearsome battles at great cost of life, and then imprisoning the horde before midnight.

A cold legion veteran has grown larger and tougher than the legion minions. They have pale blue skin and piercing blue eyes. They fight with a warhammer of ice which spreads frost against the foes it strikes. They ably command minions across the battlefield.
