Warhammer Age of Sigmar Is Reforged For An Incredible New Edition




The Mortal Realms are in turmoil. Sigmar’s Dawnbringer Crusades teeter on the precipice between survival and disaster, even as the forces of Chaos, Destruction, and Death grow in power. But you know who’s been suspiciously absent from the titanic struggles that have come to dominate the eight realms? The Skaven hordes.


So that’s what they’ve been up to. A billions-strong tsunami of fur and teeth and malice is boiling up through Aqshy and beyond, as a scheme centuries in the making comes to vile fruition – and brings with it an all-new edition of Warhammer Age of Sigmar.


That’s right, the most exciting fantasy tabletop wargame in the world has been rewritten from the ground up, building on a decade of rich storytelling and bringing with it legions of new miniatures, new rules, an entirely new game mode, and a harrowing new chapter in the existential battle for the Mortal Realms.

After a long period seemingly at the periphery of the action, the Skaven have returned with a rataclysmic bang. The realms have gotten too used to a world where verminkin keep to the shadows, and the consequences are dire. All that skulking around was time spent plotting the greatest scheme of all – the Vermindoom, blossoming much of the foetid sub-realm of Blight City directly into the Realm of Fire, and opening up festering rents in reality across the rest of the Mortal Realms.

At the same time, the Great Horned Rat has struck a deal with Archaon himself, and ascended to his rightful place as a full fifth member of the Chaos pantheon – somewhat to the chagrin of the erstwhile four.

In the face of such calamity, the Stormcast Eternals of the Hallowed Knights chamber stand as the foremost bulwark against an ever-expanding tide of rodents. But the horrors they face in combating a continent-sized outbreak of Skaven are so overwhelming that they have been forced to call upon the Ruination Chamber.

These are the most grizzled veterans of the Stormcast, heroes of a thousand battles dating back to the Soul Wars and before, brave men and women who have died over and again in the service of the God-King. The innumerable reforgings have taken a heavy toll – these heroes have been sequestered in monasteries for years now, clinging to the last vestiges of their humanity.

Now they have been called upon once more – the only forces hardy enough to enter a warzone blighted by the corrupting force of the warpstone. For these mighty warriors, this may be the final time they step into battle – at least, as themselves.

I love the models, but I just don’t enjoy tbe AOS ruleset. Especially now that Old World released. I’ve always been a WHFB guy, from the 90’s. 40K to a lesser extent. 

but man, some of those Skaven heroes are definitely going on Square bases.
