Games Workshop are continuing their relentless march against the tides of Chaos with a week of pre-orders focused on the Stormcast Eternals. As well as the Liberators they have the new Lord-Celestant. Oh, and there is a new Age of Sigmar Book out too alongside a Limited Edition version too…
First off we have the books that are coming out. This Age of Sigmar Book is packed with a variety of scenarios for playing your games as well as oodles of fluff and background for the new world of Warhammer. It might not be to everyone’s taste but I quite like the cover art at least!
“…the book contains the first part of the ongoing narrative: The Realmgate Wars. Scenarios, rules and backgrounds for setting your games within the realms, as the Stormcast Eternals and the forces of Chaos fight bitterly over control of the realmgates! Choose your faction and dive into the world of Warhammer Age of Sigmar now!”
Hopefully towards the end of next week we’ll learn more about what is between its pages and how it matches against the free rules that already exist. There is also a Limited Edition version of the book if folks are interesting in diving in even further.
Model-wise I’m a happy bunny as they’re adding to my faction of choice for the Age of Sigmar, the Stormcast Eternals. As we mentioned above they have the new Liberators with a collection of different weapons including swords instead of Hammers.
They also get the epic (in my opinion anyway) Lord-Celestant that I am already planning to paint up like Tyrael from Diablo. I just need to actually get reasonably good at using some green stuff for the hood. I might get a mate to do it instead…
If you’re REALLY into Age of Sigmar they have also got some bits and bobs for you too. Not only are there two Dice Shakers for Khorne and the Stormcast but a Combat Gauge. I don’t really get the point of the Combat Gauge to be honest but if you like having everything then it’s there. The dice are nice though…
There have also been whispers of what else is down the pipeline. The Prosecutors (winged chaps) are getting a kit complete with spears and there are some bow armed Liberators coming too.
Will you be getting any of this new stuff?
