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 Cavalier-Marshal

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.

Freeguild Marshal & Relic Envoy

The Freeguild Command Corps are an eclectic bunch of characters each with their own specialisation.

Freeguild Fusiliers

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.

Riding withered steeds, Harbingers of Decay are morbid soothsayers who herald the arrival of Nurgle’s decaying legions.

Harbingers of Decay

Old allies from the earliest days of Warhammer Age of Sigmar lore reunite for a grudge match against Khorgos Khul.

There’s new twists and turns as the narrative continues with new rules for the next chapter.

Continue your Cities of Sigmar Path to Glory campaign with The Twin-tailed Crusade: Chapter 2 – Against the Odds, which includes setbacks, blessings, treasures, and eight separate battleplans.

There are four new Armies of Renown. The two new headline characters have their armies represented by The Evergreen Hunt – a cadre of Sylvaneth enthralled by the harmonies of the hunt – and the Draconith Skywing, a force of mounted Stormcast Eternals.

He comes with two head options: helmet or glorious, flowing beard.

From Black Library is Genefather by Guy Haley. The finest minds in the Imperium have come together at the behest of Belisarius Cawl to unlock the secrets of the Necron pylon network and heal the great wound torn across the galaxy.
