Next Week – Beastgrave Ogors and Nurgle and Wrath of the Everchosen (with new mixed Daemon Allegiance!)
We have 2 new Beastgrave warbands incoming for preorde next week – The Wurmspat and Hrothgorn’s Mantrappers! Also the new book detailing the Bonereaper seige of the Varenspire Wrath of the Everchosen is also up for order and features a new combined daemon allegiance! Here’s all the details from Warhammer Community!
This week sees not one, but two new warbands enter Beastgrave, while the deathless legions of Katakros enter the Eightpoints. We hate to spoil it, but there might be a dust-up brewing… Let’s have a look, shall we?
Make sure you’re up to date on your immunisations, because a foul sorcerer of Nurgle is coming to Beastgrave along with two bloated champions from her retinue, and she’s bringing her cat… Nurgling… hybrid… thing. Their deck includes a new card type, so The Wurmspat play like nothing else in the game, and the models are loaded with all the disgusting details you’d expect to find on faithful followers of Nurgle.
We’ll let you know more about how The Wurmspat play in your games – including the new cards – later in the week, so check back to learn all about them.
You’ll definitely want to pick up these sickly green and bruised pink dice, and grab some matching card sleeves to keep all your cards for The Wurmspat safe from any stray squelching ooze or foetid ichor.
Next week also sees a very hungry Ogor Icebrow Hunter making his way to Beastgrave in search of something to fill his aching belly. Hrothgorn brought his trusty pet Frost Sabre, Thrafnir, while a handful of enterprising Gnoblars have tagged along hoping for some scraps. Hrothgorn is an impressive brute, for sure, and the diminutive Gnoblars are incredibly fun and full of character.
Watch out for a set of themed dice to go alongside your new warband, this time in a very fetching ice blue and bronze colour scheme. Grab a pack of card sleeves with matching iconography to keep your cards in good shape through the harsh Everwinter blizzards.
The Mortal Realms have seen a lot of shake ups over the last few books, including the Shyish necroquake and the arrival of the Ossiarch Bonereapers. Now, Wrath of the Everchosen builds on these events as the forces of Death invade the Eightpoints, home to Archaon’s murderous followers and his nigh-impenetrable fortress, the Varanspire. The clash between two of the greatest generals in all the Mortal Realms, leading two of the mightiest armies, is a spectacle to behold for every fan of Warhammer Age of Sigmar, and is sure to have lasting ramifications for the rest of the realms.
If you play a Chaos army (or want to start) this book is a must-have, detailing a new combined daemon allegiance. Included in the book are loads of new and exciting rules, as well as scenarios to represent some of the 13 unique sub-factions and wild battles of the epic war, with full campaign details if you want to recreate it yourself. You’ll also find updated rules for conducting sieges, plus using roaming monsters and even wandering endless spells in your games.
Next week, you’ll be able to preorder the 104-page book in standard hardback and digital editions. We’ll be previewing this action-packed tome in more detail, so watch out for more information soon.
From the Black Library next week, J C Stearns’ new Warhammer Horror novel, The Oubliette, centres around the daughter of a Lord Governor, who must learn to navigate the complex social and political structure she’s thrust into when she takes command after her father’s murder. She soon learns that in order to survive the power struggle, she may have to make some dangerous allies of her own… Pre-order it from Saturday in both hardback and audiobook editions.
Soon available to order in paperback, Knights of Macragge by Nick Kyme reveals the fate of Captain Cato Sicarius and his warriors, last seen cast adrift on the tides of the warp. They now find themselves on a world plagued by a terrible enemy – they’ve survived despite the odds, but if they remain to defeat the enemy, what will be the cost?
Heroes of the Empire by Chris Wright is a massive 880-page paperback omnibus (it’s also available as an eBook, if you’d prefer pixels to pages) containing three novels and three short stories exploring stalwart heroes of the world-that-was. Besieged on multiple fronts, facing down everything from vicious greenskins, relentless undead, and sinister beings that lurk in the shadows, brave men and women stand against the tide to protect the Empire.
All of this will be available to pre-order this Saturday. Sign up for our email newsletter to make sure you know as soon as they’re up on the website!
And one more thing…
Looking for a fun way to spice up your office, painting area, display cabinets or shelves? Our partners at Bandai are releasing the first wave of amazing 2-inch, pre-painted collectable Warhammer 40,000 figures. These officially licensed products perfectly capture the weapons and markings of warriors of the Imperium – rendered with exaggerated, chibi-style proportions.
They’re sold in blind packs, meaning you won’t know which one you’re going to get until you open it! Trade them with your friends to build a full set. They’ll be on sale online and in Warhammer stores from the 8th of February with no pre-order period, and we expect them to go fast! Once they’re gone, they’re gone, so don’t hesitate if you want them!
Really looking forward to Wrath of the Everchosen. Waiting to see how it takes the AOS story forward from Soul Wars.
