Warhammer: Age of Sigmar is Getting a RTS from Frontier Developments

Warhammer: Age of Sigmar

Coming to PC and consoles in 2023, Games Workshop‘s Warhammer: Age of Sigmar is getting a real-time strategy game from Frontier Developments.

The game was discovered within the investor relations note from the company where it announced they had acquired the licence for the game.

The company has the exclusive rights to develop it for PC and consoles and is expected to release the game fiscale year 2023 which ends May 31, 2023. You’ve got a while.

Games Workshop Reveals a Scinari Cathallar a Lumineth Realm-lord

During their third online preview, Games Workshop revealed Scinari Cathallar, a new figure for the upcoming Lumineth army.

The Scinari Cathallar plays a vital role in Lumineth society. Lumineth use aetherquartz which gives them enlightenment of mind, body and spirit. It has a price though. The Aelves pay by siphoning their turbulent emotions into the aetherquartz.

In battle, Scinari Cathallars weaponise this emotion, drawing it from their allies and turning it against their enemies. Foes are rendered helpless by the overwhelming rush of despair and darkness.

The Lumineth are the reworked classic High Elves army from Warhammer, updated with new units and all-new sculpts and characters.

The Sons of Behemat are Coming to Age of Sigmaer

We got a hint during the last Games Workshop preview, but now we get our first look at the Sons of Behemat.

The giant army will feature Warhammer‘s “biggest plastic monster yet” with lots of details and trinkets from across the various factions and bits of monster.

Sons of Behemat is a brand-new army for Warhammer Age of Sigmar and is entirely made of gargants.

The classic Aleguzzler Gargant and three Mega-gargant variants – Gatebreaker, Warstomper and Kraken-eater – make for an army that’s small on model count and big in every other way – especially the carnage they can cause!

They’re also not just an army on their own, they can also be an ally to every single Age of Sigmar faction.

Las Vegas Open 2020: Teclis and the Lumineth Aelves and Seraphon

The Las Vegas Open 2020 is underway and Games Workshop has a bunch of reveals. For Age of Sigmar, the Aelves, the Lumineth Realm-lords are the big news. The classic High Elves get an update with Teclis leading the charge.

Vanari Auralan Wardens are the classic High Elf Spearmen with lots of details.

Vanari Auralan Wardens

Vanari Dawnriders are formidable cavalry mounted on horses to charge the battlefield.

The Light of Eltharion is a stunning miniature… it’s hollow! WTF!?

And of course, Teclis gets a new model that’s a worthy return for the character to Warhammer. Teclis features Celennar, Spirit of Hysh!

Teclis

There’s even more to come!

That’s not all for Age of Sigmar

The Seraphon are getting a new battletome! You’ll now get allegiance abilities, sub-faction rules, and more.

There’s also an exploration of the origin of the Seraphon including an exploration of the Starborne and how the Seraphon are chaning into the Coalesced.
