The newest faction for Warhammer: Age Of Sigmar is going to be available to pre-order this weekend as Games Workshop introduces the Lumineth Realm-lords into the mix. Teclis has arrived and his army is on the march to reclaim their portion of the Mortal Realms from the clutches of Chaos.

Leading the way we have Teclis himself who has now ascended to godhood and seeks to remake the Aelves in a new way. Teclis here is shown floating here next to the mighty Celennar who is no doubt the equal to the powerful mage in her own way. I'm still not entirely sold on the look of Teclis here as he seems like a little bit of a bolt-on rather than being connected to the rest of the miniature. It also seems like another massive headache to transport to your next game...

When it comes to more transport-appropriate heroes you've also got The Light Of Eltharion who is a take on a classic character from The Old World who has been reborn in the Mortal Realms to keep fighting for his kin.

The miniature is bloomin' awesome and I love the way this has been sculpted to show off the negative space in such a lovely way. Whilst Games Workshop might have a few missteps here and there I think this is possibly one of their best miniatures in the last few years.

Building on the sorrow and tragedy of the Aelves in Age Of Sigmar you've also got the Scinari Cathallar. She draws on the sadness of her race in order to cast her spells and ruin foes with magical power.

Much like how The Light Of Eltharion is a rather fantastic sculpt, the Scinari Cathallar is a miniature which painters are going to have a lot of fun with. Are you going to be able to attempt painting that transparent look to her veil which falls gently across her features? Or, will you try something different?

Building Your Lumnieth Realm-lord Army

As well as the characters that lead the way, you've also got the core of your army becoming available this weekend. Spearmen and Archers, core elements of any Elf army, are going to be available to help expand upon what was available in the original launch set that came out a few months ago.

Vanari Wardens - Age Of Sigmar

Vanari Wardens // Age Of Sigmar

Whatever you might think about some of the other miniatures in the Lumineth Realm-lords range, the consensus seems to be that the core options available to the army look awesome. A lot of people are fully on board with these Vanari Wardens and the Sentinels who rain down fire from above.

I think that the sculpts here bring together a lot of what people liked about the classic Elves from Warhammer Fantasy and updates them just enough for Age Of Sigmar and the Mortal Realms. They remind me a lot of the Lothern Sea Guard from The Old World as an example.

Lumineth Realm-lord Books, Spells & Dice

As well as the miniatures you'll also finally be able to crack open their Battletome and start making full armies.

As always, this will feature all of the information you need to build an army of Aelves in Age Of Sigmar plus lots of background on them and how they fit into the Mortal Realms. I am interested to see how this book explores Teclis' relationship with the other forces of Order and what plans he has for his portion of the Aelven race.

As well as the rules you'll also be able to buy some accessories like their Endless Spells and summoned sorceries which seem like they are both defensive and helpful in offering buffs to your troops.

Also, if you want to get zany you can also pick up this set of limited edition barrel-shaped dice which feel very Aelven and just what you'd want to help add a bit of glamour to your Lumineth Realm-lord force.

Watch out for lots more in the coming weeks for the Lumineth Realm-lords as they have cavalry waiting in the wings, heavily armed and armoured infantry plus those massive spirits who inform a lot of the designs that appear throughout the army as a whole.

Are you going to be picking up these new miniatures?
