A new chapter has been opened in the ongoing Warhammer Underworlds saga from Games Workshop which charts the adventures of warbands in Age Of Sigmar. Your warriors will now find themselves fighting for survival in the dark and dangerous Beastgrave.

Beastgrave moves the story on and has you fighting in the savage realm of Ghur. The Mirrored City has been utterly rocked by the events of the Necroquake and parts of it are starting to bleed into different realms, and this is where the adventures of Beastgrave begin. Your existing warbands face new foes, more savage and deadly than before.

This new version of Warhammer Underworlds develops the rules and tweaks mechanics here and there to make it a more streamlined competitive experience. New cards for the coming warbands can, of course, be mixed in with your collection to come up with new tactics.

Talking of new warbands, take a look at these Beastmen, Draknar’s Ravagers.

It is great to see some new Beastmen which have been properly tailored to the Mortal Realms. This set offers up a chance to paint new Bestigor, Ungors and Great Bray-Shaman.

No doubt this pack of killers are going to have plenty of savage rules for you to get your head around. I would imagine that a fair few of them, at least the Bestigors, have access to attacks which benefit from charging your opponent. There seems to be a good mix of ranged and close combat weapon options too, giving you a nicely balanced force. Also, this would be very cool for use in Warcry too I bet.

As well as Beastmen we get to see a first look at the Kurnothi. Here we have Skaeth’s Wild Hunt.

These Aelf like creatures are akin to the Wood Elves of the Old World, defending their woodland from the ravaging forces of the Beastmen. I like that they have tweaked the aesthetics of them to include more bestial qualities like the fawn/satyr legs and of course, a centaur! The lion also reminds me of the creatures you used to see roaming amongst the forces of the High Elves back in the day.

Hopefully, we get to see the Kurnothi expanded upon for use in the wider world of Age Of Sigmar.

Could you see yourself getting drawn into Warhammer Underworlds with Beastgrave and if so, which warband would you pick?

Let us know in the comments!
