Black Spine Mountains is a province introduced in Total War: Warhammer II. It is found in the Naggaroth region in Mortal Empires. The playable faction Exiles of Nehek start here as well as two minor horde factions.

In the Eye of the Vortex campaign, there is a province called Red Desert, and another province called Plain of Spiders where Exiles of Nehek start.


The Blackspine Mountains divide the centre of the dread continent of Naggaroth. It is said that high within their peaks the oldest and most powerful creatures of the world still dwell. Ancient dragons that stalk the skies, and mighty giants that rock the ground with their footsteps, each ruling over domains they have dominated since the dawn of time.[1a]

Many other creatures inhabit these mountains, from harpies through to the mighty manticores and chimerae. As well as these, a strange breed of scaled biped can sometimes be seen in the caves and crevasses. About the height of an Elf and covered head to foot in craggy scales, these creatures are primitive, and war amongst themselves with their stone axes and clubs.
