This weekend sees more re-packaging for Age Of Sigmar by Games Workshop but also two new products which include the next campaign book, The Quest For Ghal Maraz, and the Khorne Bloodreaver which have a lot more options…
A Mighty Quest
The first of these new products is the book called The Quest For Ghal Maraz. This seems to be the next step in the story which sets up the new Age of Sigmar universe in the Warhammer world and seems to feature the Stormcast looking for the mythical hammer while running into the Daemons and more.
“The whereabouts of Sigmar’s sacred hammer, the weapon of legend known as Ghal Maraz, has been discovered. Limited is the foremost goal on the mind of the God-King, who sends twelve Stormhosts to the Hanging Valleys of Anvrok, determined to retrieve it at any cost.
Meanwhile, in the foetid reaches of Rotwater Blight, the search for Alarielle’s Hidden Vale continues apace. Can the Stormcast Eternals forge an alliance with the Sylvaneth before the pestilent tide of Nurgle’s foul magic consumes their world entirely?”
Of course as always there is a Limited Edition version of the book coming out as well. While I like the idea of these big background books to help build the universe having one so soon seems like a bit much, especially with another £45 investment.
The bloodthirsty warriors of Khorne have banded together once more with the Bloodreavers. This set of models featured in the Age of Sigmar big box but now come with additional options and continue to look epic in my opinion.
It will be interesting to see if we get alternative ‘Marauder’ types for the other factions when they come out or if these fur clad warriors will remain in the service of Khorne.
The rules for them are HERE.
Last but not least the Skaven get a big boost with Clan Pestilens having a bunch of their models be redone including the Plague Monks, Censer Bearers, Plagueclaw, Warp Lightning Cannon, Plague Furnace plus a Priest and Grey Seer on Screaming Bell.
It looks like Games Workshop are converting over the ranges they need to see continue in Age of Sigmar at the same time as developing new factions. Eventually I wouldn’t be surprised if the old range vanishes from stores and goes online only.
What do you think about the story for Age of Sigmar?
