Games Workshop Pre-Order Preview: Slaves to Darkness and more arrive for Age of Sigmar plus Horus Heresy, Necromunda, and more!
It’s a pretty big pre-order week for Age of Sigmar and Horus Heresy next week as Games Workshop has revealed what’s coming.
The Slaves to Darkness Army Set is the big item delivering a new battletome and lots of new figures. It features 14 new miniatures including a Daemon Prince, 10 Chaos Chosen, and three Ogroid Theridons. It also includes a special edition of the Slaves to Darkness battletome featuring rules you need to field your army. There are also Warscroll Cards, 28 Enhancement Cards, and 34 tokens to keep track of special rules.
That’s not the only force to be reconned with. Battletome: Ogor Mawtribes will also be available to order. It features the rules you need to field this force and you can choose between the regular edition or the limited edition that’ll only have 500 copies worldwide.
The Vanguard: Ogor Mawtribes is an easy want to start or expand your force. It features a Tyrant, six Ogor Gluttons, two Mournfangs, four Leadbelchers, and an Ironblaster which can be built as a Gnoblar Scraplauncher.
The Bloodpelt Hunter hunts large creatures in the Mortal Realms. They sneak into position hunting with their skullshatter crossbow, impaling spear, or hacker-axe and meatblade.
Maneaters will actually eat anybody. The mercenaries can be added to Battle with the Ex-mercenary Command Trait.
Keep track of your rules with the Ogor Mawtribes Warscroll Cards that feature 28 cards and 34 tokens.
Ogor Mawtribes Dice features 20 six-sided dice themed around the army.
And if neither of those armies is your thing, Vanguard: Sylvaneth will help you grow your force. It includes a Branchwych, three deadly Kurnoth Hunters, and five Tree-Revenants that can be assembled as Spite-Revenants. Finally, there’s a Treelord that can be a Treelord Ancient or a Spirit of Durthu.
Finally, there’s the Sons of Behemat Warscroll Cards which contains 12 reference cards as well as tokens to help keep track of your game.
