New Hero Bases & Dice Sets For Age Of Sigmar & Warhammer 40,000

November 5, 2016 by brennon

Games Workshop has been tinkering away on some more hobby material for you this week. We’ll kick off with the new Hero Bases for both Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000.

Age of Sigmar Hero Bases

Each of the bases gives itself over to a full on scenic terrain piece which elevates it to fit in with the themes of the Realm Wars and Age of Sigmar. These would be rather suitable for both Chaos and Order factions of choice but maybe we’ll see different sets too in the future.

The Warhammer 40,000 set is rather awesome too.

Warhammer 40,000 Hero Bases

They look great and would suit all manner of different factions. Interestingly they come with optional skulls rather than simply having them added into the base. I like that little smirking nod to the community that you can add as many skulls as you want…should the mood take you.

Dice & Wound Markers

Additionally, you can also snap up some Wound Markers

Wound Trackers

…which is a great little piece of kit for those who want to use the tried and tested method of using dice on the tabletop. It might be a small thing but I think it’s a neat little set.

They also have this set of regular D6 with a nice design and base material in a variety of colours.

Maelstrom Dice

Named the Maelstrom Dice they have a few swirls built into their patterns and feature very clear looking numbers on them too. Everyone needs more dice at some point in their life!

What do you think of these smaller hobby bits and pieces this week?

Let us know!
