During its NOVA Open 2023 presentation, Games Workshop revealed new Ironjawz units to smash your opponents with.
Zoggrok Anvilsmasha taps into the maelstrom of raw anarchic energy of the Waaagh! to boost nearby Orruk weapons. He’s accompanied by Klonk, a squig and anvil with legs. Zoggrok can also be equipped with a pair of Grunta-tongs, which he uses to further imbue the power of the Waaagh! into the weapons of nearby orruks.
Brute Ragerz are Brutes who have suffered defeat and double down and become even more arrogant, getting rid of their armour and weilding two-handed weapons.
Weirdbrute Wrekkaz are whipped up in the Waagh! and have gone wonky. To stop that, the Shamans hammer bone and iron masks on their skulls which is really painful and turns them into maniacal killers.
Ardboys are armoured shock troops and hardened veterans with an appetite for violence. They’re more than capable with their stikkas that keep the enemy at a distance and their shields and beaten iron covered tusks and spikes.
All of those new units will be available in Battletome Supplement: Ironjawz, a free online battletome supplement.
Trugg, the Troggoth King is coming to the Mortal Realms and Warhammer: Age of Sigmar with an amazing miniature revealed during Games Workshop‘s NOVA Open 2023 preview.
Trugg has finally roused due to the rambunctious caterwauling and clanging. There just so happens to also be an arcane engine stuck to his back.
That alter influences him and he’s been drawn to the magical ley lines in the Mortal Realms. Trugg just wants that all to stop and will smash anything magical to make that happen.
Following this ornery behemoth are a huge horde of Troggoths: Fellwater, Rockgut, and Dankhold.
You can find out about Trugg in Dawnbringers: Book II – Reign of the Brute, which continues the story of the Twin-Tailed Crusade as they wind their way forth through Aqsha and Ghyran. Not only does the book advance the story but also contains rules to support Trugg and his entourage, a great stomp led by King Brodd, and a Waaagh! spearheaded by pugnacious greenskins seen riding wild hogs of prodigious girth. That includes Matched Play Armies of Renown, as well as an Army of Renown for the Kharadron Overlords themed around the Grundstok Expeditionary Force.
It’s a big week for Seraphon players and Warhammer: Age of Sigmar as next weekend’s Games Workshop pre-order is filled with a new battletome and new miniatures.
The Battletome: Seraphon is now available after its initial release in the Seraphon Army Set. The book has everything you need to play including new and updated rules, warscrolls, pitched battle profiles for every unit and sub-faction, and fresh Path to Glory rules. You can also get a limited edition copy that features gilt page edges, gold foil blocking, a red ribbon page marker, and a soft-touch cover. It’s limited to just 400 numbered copies.
The Seraphon operate under the Slann Starmaster. Created by the Old Ones, the ensure the cosmic equation known as the Astromatrix is not unbalanced and that the Great Plan comes to pass. They bring cosmic energy and spellcasting to the Seraphon host.
Skink Starseers are the most powerful Skink wizards, second only to their Slann superiors. They predict the future and bestow blessings upon their allies.
The Saurus Scar-Veteran on Aggradon head into combat on the back of alpha predators. They attack with a ferocious roar.
The Saurus Astrolith Bearer act as conduits for heavenly energies to help empower the Serapon armies.
Aggradon Lancers are vicious and become frenzied when they taste blood helping to carve through enemy lines.
Kroxigors bring brute strength and this kit also helps build Kroxigor Warspawned, a more savage variant.
Raptadon Hunters are Raptadons ridden into battle by Skinks. You can also make Raptadon Chargers.
Saurus Warriors are the mainstay of Seraphon armies.
Spawn of Chotec are living artillery belching flaming gobs of corrosive saliva at the enemy.
For Warhammer: The Horus Heresy comes to Librarian Consul. They tap into the warp to wield psychic powers against their enemies. The resin miniature is equipped with a force axe and comes with a choice of helmed and unhelmed head.
The Imperial Fists used the Decurion Saggitar as tank commanders in their vehicle combat. They help tank crews split fire to destroy multiple critical targets in a single engagement. The resin upgrade kit is designed to be fitted on a plastic Deimos Pattern Predator, Sicaran, or Kratos.
With Siege of Cthonia here, get Imperial Fists and Sons of Horus Shoulder Pads and Torsos to upgrade your figures. These will be available to order on Friday, and will go off sale at 8am UK time on Monday the 5th of June. There are six sets available, all cast in resin: Imperial Fists MKIV Shoulder Pads and MKVI Shoulder Pads, and Sons of Horus MKIII Shoulder Pads, MKIV Shoulder Pads, Cataphractii Shoulder Pads, and MKIV Torsos.
At Warhammer Fest 2023, the roadmap for 2023 has been revealed. Dawnbringers is the big announcement, the new storyline for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. Summer, Autumn, and Winter sees the release of four books. The much anticipated Cities of Sigmar gets an Autumn release with Winter featuring another mystery book.
At Warhammer Fest 2023, Games Workshop revealed the next campaign series for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar, Dawnbringers!
Dawnbringers Book I: Harbingers kicks off the series and supports all four Grand Alliances. It introduces the Twin-Tailed Crusade, an expedition that will depart across Aqshy and Ghyran. It follows both crusades and their fates with new background and rules for games, characters, and there’s a new Path to Glory battlepack with new quests, territory rules, veteran abilities, and six battleplans.
Harbingers takes its name from the four heralds of provenance who rise to prominence in the early days of the Twin-Tailed Crusade, each leading a warband of devoted followers.
Phlugoth the Miser – Harbinger of Decay diving Nurgle’s will as pestilent prophets. They lead Rotbringer cohorts known as Shudderhoods bringing the Plague Lord’s name across the land.
Sir Jerrion – Marrowscroll Herald is a vector of madness, spreading and magnifying the delusions that drive them. They’re inspiring warrior-envoys for the Flesh-eater Courts.
Fjori – Grimhold Exile is an avatar of retribution ready to meet foes in battle. The Grimhold Exiles are a rare sight to be seen within the Fyreslayers.
Braggit Big-Talka – Rabble-Rowza is attended by a swarm of bat squigs and can gather hordes of agitated cave-critters that can bring a deluge of destruction.
Each of these heralds will lead a unique Regiment of Renown.
Games Workshop‘s Warhammer Fest 2023 had some upcoming releases to show off for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. The Cities of Sigmar got more teases with the Freeguild Cavaliers.
These horsemen are fitted with heavy armor and shields and weaponry to smash through the enemy.
The Maw-grunta is a pig like no other for the Orruk Warclans. These hulking beasts are a force of nature. One can easily smash through massed infantry. It’s big enough to have two Orruks riding side-saddled and equipped with massive hooked blades.
Both units will be leading the Dawnbringer Crusaders, the next major narrative for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.
The next expansion for Warcry has been revealed, Warcry: Nightmare Quest. The box set contains everything you need to play and features the Questor Soulsworn taking on the Royal Beastflayers. Of course, both factions will wind up in Warhammer: Age of Sigmar with warscrolls of their own.
The Questor Soulsworn are usually solo agents wandering the realm but on occasion gather in warbands to take on perilous tasks.
The Royal Beastflayers act as gameskeepers for their vampiric kings stalking terrible beasts or innocent bystanders. They use Offal Hound to track down their quarry.
The box set also features terrain including the Realmshaper Engine. Nightmare Hunt also contains Might and Madness, a packed warband tome that details all the background information and rules for both warbands and includes quests that your single-minded zealots – both golden and grizzly – can undertake.
It’s a pretty light week for Games Workshop‘s pre-orders this coming week after a packed month. It’s just one release for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar, two for Adeptus Titanicus, and one Black Library release. See what you can get below!
The big release for the week is the Seraphon Army Set. It features 27 brand-new miniatures as well as a special edition of Battletome Seraphon, and reference cards. Included is a highly customizable Slaan Starmaster atop a finely detailed palanquin, 10 Saurus Warriors equipped with either spears or spiked clubs, and 10 Raptadon cavalry, which can be built as Chargers or Hunters. As well as the new battletome, you’ll also find 35 warscroll cards, 53 enhancement cards, and a set of 60 tokens, so all of your rules are close at hand.
It’s been a bit since an Adeptus Titanicus release and next week sees the Adeptus Titanicus: Campaign Compendium. It collects everything you need to play campaigns in a 224-page compilation of every narrative supplement release so far. It includes Titandeath, Doom of Molech, Shadow and Iron, The Defence of Ryza, and Crucible of Retribution. It also features lore for the five Titan Legions’ greatest battles during the Horus Heresy, 27 narrative missions, and a full campaign system. There are also rules for fielding Households of Imperial Knights, up to and including entire armies of them, and options to create your own custom Titan Legion with rules of their own.
Conversion Beam Weapons are destructive weapons on a titanic scale. These resin upgrades will be available from Forge World and will help turn your titans into even more destructive machines of destruction.
From Black Library, William King‘s Space Wolf will be out as an audiobook. It tells the story of Ragnar Blackmane’s induction into the Space Wolves and his early days winning fame and glory on the battlefield, all while the insidious Canis Helix gnaws at the threads holding his self-control together.
