Total War: WARHAMMER Wiki

Fortress Gates are a special type of settlement used by High Elves on Ulthuan and the Empire in the Old World.

The Fortress Gates have an extra large garrison and only one building slot. While besieging Fortress Gates, the attackers don't have the option to construct Siege weapons, effectively resulting in the siege being more in the defenders' favor.

The garrisons of High Elven Fortress Gates have a special unit called the Gate Guard, similar to Lothern Sea Guard, who cannot be recruited into armies.
