After the initial box set release, Warhammer: Age of Sigmar‘s Cities of Sigmar is getting a full, proper release. It’s a big week for Age of Sigmar with a lot of releases. Check out everything you’ll be able to order soon!
Battletome: Cities of Sigmar provides all the rules, background, and more you need to muster your force. It covers the history of Cities of Sigmar, features a detailed painting guide, a gallery of gorgeous miniatures, and all the rules you need to play them. That includes 50 warscrolls and Pitched Battle Profiles. Also included is a token board containing nine Order Rules Tokens and 32 Order Tokens. You can also get a limited edition version which features a red ribbon marker, gold glit page edges, and gold foil text.
Tahlia Vedra, Lioness of The Parch is a skilled mercenary whose keen strategic mind has seen her rise through the ranks of the Freeguilds – and revolutionize them in the process – Tahlia Vedra remains first and foremost a warrior of the people. Leading from the front lines, she rides her manticore Infernadine and inspires her fellow soldiers to fight with Aqshian ardour.
Pontifex Zenestra, Matriarch of The Great Wheel appeals to the faith in the God-King Sigmar. Uncompromising and unknowable, Zenestra is carried into battle on the back of a sacred palanquin, a curious skeletal double in tow, as her battlefield sermons whip allies into a frenzy.
The Freeguild Cavalier-Marshal is a general who can galvanize even the most beleaguered soldier into action. Though they often accompany Freeguild Cavaliers on line-breaking charges, these Marshals carry the weight of the logistics of the Dawnbringer Crusades, hence all the gear.
Freeguild Marshal & Relic Envoy are veterans who prefer a ground-level view of combat, sending orders down the line of battle via their Relic Envoys. The Marshal themselves have a wide array of build options, including three different heads, options for a shield in either hand, and a choice of weapons.
The Freeguild Command Corps are an eclectic bunch of characters each with their own specialisation. The group consists of a powerful Arch-Knight, a flag-waving Great Herald, an ever-watchful Whisperblade, a grim War Surgeon, a morbid Soul Shepherd, and their loyal Mascot Gargoylian, with a bevy of cosmetic customization options.
The Alchemite Warforger can imbue base metals with powerful Chamonic energy, turning regular swords and axes into blazing weapons, and magically reinforcing shields and breastplates.
Fusil-Major on Ogor Warhulk snipe enemy targets and relays their maneuvers, while the Ogor Warhulk hefts a towering shield and hefty club to defend their allies.
Freeguild Cavaliers prove their worth as veterans of many battles. These mounted fighters carry fine gear that they have either earned through lengthy service, or carried from their ransacked ancestral homes. This kit features a myriad of options for you to create units of uniquely majestic knights.
Freeguild Fusiliers deliver a concentrated volley of fire. Should a target somehow survive to attempt a retaliatory charge, this defensive line will form up behind their heavy pavises, reload, and unleash hell once more.
Freeguild Steelhelms make up the defensive walls of the Castelite formation. With discipline, determination, and unwavering faith in Sigmar, these humble men and women go toe to toe with hulking orruks, gibbering daemons, and undead fiends to secure their place in the Realms.
The Ironweld Great Cannon is a mighty artillery piece manned by an expert crew who ensure it fires a constant barrage of cannonballs, shells, and grapeshot. Firing only ceases when the cannon wheels forward to allow Freeguild Steelhelms and Cavaliers to sally forth from within their living fortification.
Dawnbringers: Book III – The Long Hunt is the next leg of the glorious campaign. Now powerful new allies join the Dawnbringers, as the Aqshian tail meets the Goretide, and the Ghyranite tail battles starving Ogor Gorgers. This supplement continues the epic narrative and includes rules for four new Armies of Renown and the second part of the Cities of Sigmar Path to Glory campaign with branching paths, boons, and setbacks.*
You can also get a limited edition of The Long Hunt, which features soft-fouch full cover art with gold foil lettering, a blue ribbon marker, and gilt page edges. This edition, displaying Ionus Cryptborn and his regal steed Cthorak in all their glory, is limited to just 300 individually numbered copies.
Neave Blacktalon is Sigmar’s foremost assassin, head of a specialist group of elite warriors. Neave, Hendrick the Silver Wolf, Rostus Oxenhammer, Shekinah Goldenblade, and the mysterious Idoneth Soulscryer Lorai, Child of the Abyss, are heroes who starred in the Warhammer TV show Blacktalon, now immortalized as five characterful miniatures.
Rules for The Blacktalons as a Regiment of Renown are featured in Dawnbringers: Book III – The Long Hunt, just in time for Neave’s full-length Black Library novel.
Ionus Cryptborn has returned in a menacing new form as the Warden of Lost Souls and you can get him in Cryptborn’s Stormwing. Mounted atop the mighty draconith Cthorak, this living legend soars through the skies, calling down scouring maelstroms with prayers to Sigmar. This box pairs Ionus with two Stormdrake Guards – one of which can be built as a Knight-Draconis – making it the perfect start to a Draconith Skywing, a new Stormcast Eternals Army of Renown which can be found in The Long Hunt.
The Blades of Belthanos is a new box set to expand or start your Sylvaneth army. Perched atop his Carnelian Greatspite, Belthanos is a herald of the dormant Sylvaneth God of the Hunt. The First Thorn of Kurnoth strikes from the trees, and rides out in this boxed set containing Belthanos himself, alongside three Kurnoth Hunters with a variety of weapons, and three Revenant Seekers, which can also be built as Spiterider Lancers. They make a perfect core for the new Sylvaneth Army of Renown in The Long Hunt, the Evergreen Hunt.
When magmaholds fall, lone survivors known as Grimhold Exiles carry on their legacy. Wielding weapons imbued with the embers of their magmahold’s sacred flame, they battle on as bloody-minded agents of retribution. Some hope to found new holds, while others simply pit themselves against the toughest foes they can find.
Riding withered steeds, Harbingers of Decay are morbid soothsayers who herald the arrival of Nurgle’s decaying legions. Dour and humorless, they directly invoke Grandfather’s pestilent power, saturating battlefields with rot and disease. The worst of these maladies is the Shudderblight, which causes the doubts and insecurities of its victims to manifest as weeping black boils.
Warhammer: The Horus Heresy gets a new release in Fulgrim Transfigured! Fulgrim’s metamorphosis is dramatic indeed – a serpentine daemonform with vast wings and additional arms. A deadly duellist before this transfiguration, Fulgrim is closer to perfection than ever, but still seeks to attain even greater glory in one-to-one combat.
This showstopping Forge World resin miniature is befitting for one such as the Primarch of the Emperor’s Children. His rules are contained in Warhammer: The Horus Heresy – Exemplary Battles of The Age of Darkness: Volume I.
