Games Workshop has been delving deeper into the Aether War Set which is going to be available this weekend from Games Workshop for the world of Age Of Sigmar. The Disciples Of Tzeentch are clashing with the Kharadron Overlords in the skies above the Mortal Realms.

Aether War Set - Age Of Sigmar

Start Collecting Age Of Sigmar @ Store.OnTableTop

As you can see the new set focuses on releasing a bunch of models from the existing collection plus the two new heroes which we saw back during the previews over Christmas. All of these models are focused on combat in the skies and the clash between magic and mechanical engineering.

I think this is a fun little set which gives you a rather unique start to a force. I imagine if you split the contents of this box with a friend and then used the extra money to pick up their applicable Start Collecting Sets for the Kharadron Overlords and Disciples Of Tzeentch you'd end up with some fun armies.

New Battletomes

As well as the release of this set which focuses the narrative around these forces you've also got the two new Battletomes. In standard fashion, they'll come with the fancy full art cover and the standard options which you can see here below.

The new books will come with updates rules for both of these factions and give you lots to play around when it comes to building more themed armies. Within the new Battletomes, you'll find a lot of ways to build towards specific subfactions which grant you an array of additional bonuses and such when you use the right troops in-game.

I always like seeing Games Workshop put something extra into their cover art design and here they've been continuing the trend of showing a regular foot soldier as the core focus. It looks very stylish and also means that if you're one of those people who collects all of the Battletomes then you've got a nice consistent collection.

Sinister Spells

It wouldn't be an army of Tzeentch without the use of Endless Spells and thankfully you've got some new ones from the team at Games Workshop.

Tzeentch Endless Spells - Age Of Sigmar

This collection of three spells gives you the Tome Of Eyes, the Daemonic Simulacrum and finally the Burning Sigil Of Tzeentch. Games Workshop are going to be focusing on how each of these work in more preview articles for the factions from Aether War in the near future so watch this space.

Are you tempted by this set and these new armies?
