Another bit of Warhammer: Age Of Sigmar news this week as we're also getting some new Games Workshop options for Warcry too. You'll now be able to bring in warbands from across the four different Grand Alliances, not just Chaos, to battle for glory and to have your name etched into the very fabric of the realms.

Sentinels Of Order - Warcry

Each of these books comes packed with all of the rules that you need in order to craft a warband based around your favourite Grand Alliance. If the forces of Chaos hadn't particular appealed to you back when Warcry launched then you now have some ways to bring your favoured faction into the game.

Brings Of Death - Warcry

Within each of the books, you'll also find a big thematic background table to help build up the lore surrounding your warband. There is also a massive campaign for you to play out contained within each book where you can war for powerful artefacts to use in your games.

Harbingers Of Destruction - Warcry

Harbingers Of Destruction // Age Of Sigmar: Warcry

This seems like a nifty idea for those who want to dive in and explore The Mortal Realms without building a massive army. I was personally totally fine with Warcry just being all about the forces of Chaos warring around the Varanspire but it's always nice to see new options presented for a game.

For those people who dipped their toe with Warhammer Underworlds and want something larger in scope to dive into, this might be worth considering. The big question is, which of these factions are you going to be picking?

Agents Of Chaos - Warcry

Agents Of Chaos // Age Of Sigmar: Warcry

I am very tempted to give these a read. I might have a peek at the book for the Sentinels Of Order, perhaps as the Stormcast Eternals or Kharadron Overlords. I can sense myself going down quite a long road with this one...

Getting Started With Warcry Warband Sets

Helping you get started in Warcry, we also have some new Warband Sets which you can snap up. Each of these sets come with the miniatures you need to get started plus a selection of accessories which you need during turn-to-turn gameplay.

Legions Of Nagash - Warcry

Legions Of Nagash // Age Of Sigmar: Warcry

As well as the four sets which were shown off a few weeks ago, we also have two new ones with the Legions Of Nagash who serve the mighty necromancer and also the wild guardians of the Sylvaneth.

Sylvaneth - Warcry

Sylvaneth // Age Of Sigmar: Warcry

I was tempted by the likes of the Stormcast Eternals and Kharadron Overlords but I also really like what that Sylvaneth set offers up too. I have always liked the look of the Kurnoth Hunters in particular and I think they would be nice and easy to paint to boot!

The two warbands previously available as part of the Catacombs Starter Set are going to be up for pre-order separately too.

Khainite Shadowstalkers - Warcry

Khainite Shadowstalkers // Age Of Sigmar: Warcry

This means that you can take on the role of the deadly assassins that make up the Khainite Shadowstalkers and also the fiery fury of the Scions Of The Flame.

There are now many, many, many ways or you to find your way into Warcry and by extension The Mortal Realms. One of the things that often works as a stumbling block for Age Of Sigmar is that the world itself is immense and a little hard to comprehend. By moving away from grand armies and instead focusing in on the engagements between handfuls of miniatures, you allow yourself the chance to get to know Age Of Sigmar a bit at a time.

Tome Of Champions 2020

Capping things off for Warcry we also have the Tome Of Champions 2020 which features new options for narrative, open and matched play.

Tome Of Champions 2020 - Warcry

Tome Of Champions 2020 // Age Of Sigmar: Warcry

Within this book, you'll find options for your standard games plus multiplayer pit fights, a new fated quest, challenge battles and also a sprawling narrative campaign which is set in the city of Soroth Kor. You will find yourselves fighting for territory and artefacts as you seek dominion over the people that make up this damned city.

This sounds to me like the makings of a Mordheim-esque campaign with friends!
