Nighthaunt and Stormcast Preorders! Battletomes, Endless Spells and Reinforcements!
We may be just cracking open out Soul Wars boxes, but there is lots more stuff on the way for Warhammer Age of Sigmar!!
An indomitable new malevolence has stirred an ancient terror. No longer content to hunt civilisation’s edges, phantasmal forces gather into spectral armies. This is no mere haunting, but a shock assault that seeks nothing less than to destroy life itself. From the darkest pits of Shyish, the Realm of Death, comes a storm of ethereal figures. These wraiths fight to send fresh souls screaming down into the darkened realms from whence the dead emerged, taking cruel pleasure in knowing the torments that await their victims below…
This pack of 24 large-format cards contains each of the unit Warscrolls from Battletome: Nighthaunt – including 3 Endless Spell Warscrolls – printed on individual cards for handy reference in your battles, along with 2 sheets of gaming tokens. These include Command Point tokens, 3 spell tokens from the Lore of the Underworlds and a set of Objective tokens.
This is a set of 20 6-sided 16mm dice, coloured turquoise – with a glow in the dark effect! – representing the undead hordes of the Nighthaunt. Each features a Nighthaunt hourglass icon in place of the 6 and a skull in place of the 1.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 3 Endless Spells usable by Nighthaunt wizards in games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar. When used with the Malign Sorcery rules, these can be incredibly powerful tools in your magical arsenal. Included:
– A Shyish Reaper: the ultimate manifestation of finality and death, this is an enormous scythe which swings through the air tearing away mortal souls, sending them screaming into the underworlds;
– A Vault of Souls: this chest siphons away souls – 5 of which are visible as skulls, protruding from the Vault itself – eventually bursting under the pressure, sending forth a lethal explosion that strikes all nearby;
– A Mortalis Terminexus: an hourglass of fate, standing on a column of ethereal energy, which can interfere with the passage of time. This can restore youth and vitality – or wither and age, in the merest blink of an eye.
She is the Mourning Bride, the Unrequited Queen, the Veiled Lady and the Mortarch of Grief. She is despair made manifest, gloom given form. She is Lady Olynder, and in her are bound all the sorrows and anguishes of the realms. Her power transcends the melancholic, for she exudes mind-crippling waves of pure desolation. Mortals in her presence are overwhelmed by a gloom so heavy that only the strongest willed can stay upright. Most fall to their knees, mentally battered by their own utter hopelessness. It is a sorrow potent enough to cause a mother to forsake her child, a warrior to lay down his sword and accept the inevitable, to stop a beating heart.
Spirit Torments such as Crawlocke are entrusted with a duty Nagash considers vitally important – it is their role to capture the souls of transgressors, those who have escaped their due fate. A Spirit Torment draws its victim’s soul into its shacklegheist chains, heavy bonds forged of malefic iron and tempered by fell ritual. The accompanying Chainghasts are such eternally-imprisoned victims, bound to automatically obey every command of their Spirit Torment master, doomed to an inexplicable but impossible yearning for freedom.
In life, those who were to become Grimghast Reapers were careful and meticulous killers. In death, they never cease in their long, sweeping strokes that mercilessly cut the enemy down a rank at a time, and they never tire. Like clockwork, they endlessly repeat their deadly shearing strikes. The grim spectres move quickly, hovering down to attack, doing so with jarring motions antithetical to the graceful movements of the living. They seem to start and stop, travelling in convulsive bursts; but they are fast for all that.
Sigmar’s storm. The heavens roar and the sky crashes, split by searing bolts from above. With an explosion of lightning and a booming thunderclap, the forces of the Stormcast Eternals manifest in reality and plunge into battle. Energised by the magical tempest, they launch their attack, weapons wreathed in celestial energy. Razor-edged blades rise and fall, and heavy hammers swing in an onslaught that batters down all before it. Theirs is the fury of the heavens unleashed
This pack of 53 large-format cards contains each of the unit Warscrolls from Battletome: Stormcast Eternals – including 3 Endless Spell Warscrolls – printed on individual cards for handy reference in your battles, along with 2 sheets of gaming tokens. These include Command Point and Battle Trait tokens, 3 spell tokens from the Lore of Invigoration, 3 spell tokens from the Lore of the Storms, and a set of Objective tokens.

The cataclysmic necroquake of Shyish has flooded the Mortal Realms with the powers of the aether. Incantations summon forth new conjurations of unprecedented power and frightful sentience, but beware – such endless spells can be treacherous, as likely to turn upon their caster as they are to devastate the enemy. From unleashing disembodied gnashing jaws to devour your foes, to raising prismatic barricades to protect your flanks, doing battle in the time of the Arcanum Optimar is unlike anything that has come before. This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble 3 Endless Spells usable by Stormcast Eternals wizards in games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar. When used with the Malign Sorcery rules, these can be incredibly powerful tools in your magical arsenal. Included:
– A Celestian Vortex: this is a whirling tornado of Azyrite magic, which carries a storm of hammers cast in the image of Ghal Maraz, the Great Shatterer. Anyone caught in the vortex’s path is hurled, smashed and broken, into the dirt;
– A Dais Arcanum: this circular platform inscribed with icons of the 8 winds of magic and orbited by 3 twin-tailed comets bears a rider upon the winds of Azry and bolsters their mastery of the arcane arts;
– An Everblaze Comet: a shooting star plucked from the firmament and slammed down into enemy lines, this is a large meteoric rock with a sculpted base depicting its devastating impact.
The Lord-Exorcist is a master at channeling celestial energy to banish daemons and gheists. Even Nagash, in his towering arrogance, has been forced to take note of these figures, for they carry the light of Order, and are anathema to even the most hateful undead spectre. By slamming the heel of their ceremonial staves upon the ground, Lord-Exorcists can send out a wave of crackling null energy that will banish a soul from its body – and drive it far into the wilderness. The Lord-Exorcist also has purview over the lost souls of enemies, able to send them back to Azyr, where those who can be saved begin the long, arduous process of redemption.
Wow, I think you will agree that’s loads of awesome stuff, and I’m sure there will be more to come in the next few weeks!!
