Rain Down Lightning With Stormcast Judicators For Age Of Sigmar

July 25, 2015 by brennon

The Judicators are finally here for Age of Sigmar and Games Workshop has once again split the community when it comes to whether or not these units are loved or hated. See what you think of these bow-wielding Stormcast Eternal below and let us know your thoughts…

Bolt From The Blue

The boxed set of Judicators allows you to either make a unit armed with Skybolt Bows or Boltstorm Crossbows. The bow option allows you to fire a little further (twenty four inches) and has a rend value of minus one. The leader of the unit also carries a Shockbolt Bow which, when fired, can split into a hail of lighting bolts (pretty epic) which rains down on the enemy…

Judicators (Bows)

…by comparison the Boltstorm Crossbows (how similar a name to something else…) have a shorter range but can fire twice. They also have the added Rapid Fire rule which gives them another attack on top of their normal two for peppering the enemy with lightning energy.

Judicators (Crossbow)

The Thunderbolt Crossbow which is the special weapon within the Crossbow arrangement is used for hunting down monsters. This weapon blasts monsters and if it is able to get below the wounds of whatever creature it hits it will do D3 mortal wounds to it instead.

I was with everyone else when these first popped up online. I thought they looked a bit stupid. Now however after looking at them a bit closer I think they are awesome. The complete switch of aesthetic within Age of Sigmar was jarring at first but viewing it as an entirely different game I’ve come to love the huge hulking paladins waging war against Chaos on the various planes of reality. Very Diablo…

You can get a hold of the Warscroll for this unit HERE so if you want to try them out on the tabletop before you buy them you can.

Next week should see the Paladins/Retributors for the Stormcast and then Chaos soon after so we shall be waiting with baited breath…

What do you think of the Judicators?
