The Book
An essential, complete toolkit of rules that you and your gaming group can use in any way you like, the General’s Handbook expands upon the rules of Warhammer Age of Sigmar to create a huge array of different gaming styles to suit any tastes.

The Rules
Each of these gives you, the player, massive flexibility and choice in the way games are played – they’re designed to make you and your friends masters of your own gaming tables. The different rules have massive scope for overlap; for example if you want to use the multiplayer rules for a tournament, or Matched Play rules for a narrative campaign, you’re totally free to do so.60040299063_GeneralsHandbookENG03

Open Play
This is the best introduction to Warhammer Age of Sigmar and the wider world of wargaming in general. Open Play allows you to play unrestricted, even team-based and multiplayer games – all you need is your miniatures, their Warscrolls, the Warhammer Age of Sigmar rules, some dice and a tape measure. The General’s Handbook features a number of great examples of Battleplans that are perfect for this play style, which we encourage you to expand upon with your own collections and even your own rules!

60040299063_GeneralsHandbookENG04

Narrative Play
The stories from the Mortal Realms are an important part of Warhammer Age of Sigmar – your collection of miniatures is made even more special by the rich history and thrilling tales told about them in various publications, making the hobby of collecting them an even more exciting venture. Narrative Play gives you a way to recreate the epic battles that have taken place in the Mortal Realms. The General’s Handbook shows you how to theme an army for Narrative Play, contains advice on where to find the inspirational stories that fuel the games – and how to build your own stories and play exciting games within them.

Matched Play
Some hobbyists prefer to test their mettle in an equally-matched battle of strategy and wits, in which no advantage is conferred simply by selecting the biggest and baddest miniature in your figure case. Matched Play is the perfect solution – this provides points values for the units available in the Warhammer Age of Sigmar range, allowing you and your opponent to size each other up, decide on a points limit, deploy your armies and go to war on an equal footing.

 

Alarielle the Everqueen $130

99120204015_AlarielleEverqueen09

Reborn from the land she loved in a soaring crescendo of hope, fury, loss and exhilaration, Alarielle the Everqueen is an ancient and powerful being. She is the goddess of life magic; where she treads, atop her immense wardroth beetle, new blooms scream forth in a riot of colour, strength and passion. She scatters soul amphorae across the Mortal Realms, each containing magical pollens that can coax new sylvaneth from the ground, or choke her enemies. The only match for the courage she instils in her allies is the hatred she feels for her foes – Alarielle the Everqueen burns with a fierce need for vengeance, and her enemies would do well to run.

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components needed to assemble Alarielle the Everqueen, riding her gigantic wardroth beetle – a living battering ram covered in moss, fungi and decorated with soul amphorae and other trinkets. She wields the Spear of Kurnoth in one hand, and her other arm ends in the dreaded Talon of Dwindling. 79 components in total, with an appropriately huge Citadel 160mm Round base. 99120204015_AlarielleEverqueen07

99120204015_AlarielleEverqueen08

Drycha Hamadreth $60

99120204017_DrycaHamadreth09

Said to be a truly ancient spirit, one who fought at the end of the world-that-was, the daughter of Alarielle known as Drycha Hamadreth has named herself the Regent of the Outcasts, leading them into battle while screaming her discordant songs of hatred for all who are not sylvaneth. Her lack of control and bloody-minded genocidal urges make her a frightening foe – wavering between crushing depression and white-hot rage, she makes no distinction between orruk and Stormcast, gor-kin and duardin. She is an agent of violence who will fight on and on until her twisted dream of sylvaneth dominion is achieved.

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the parts necessary to build Drycha Hamadreth. Her body is the host for either a colony of Flitterfuries or a swarm of Squirmlings, and she is armed with slashing talons and thorned slendervines. She comes supplied with 12 spites and one Citadel 105x70mm Oval base. 99120204017_DrycaHamadreth06 99120204017_DrycaHamadreth07 99120204017_DrycaHamadreth08

Kurnoth Hunters $58

99120204018_KurnothHunters09

One of the few deities worshipped by the sylvaneth alongside Alarielle, Kurnoth represents nature’s wildness and hunger. The Kurnoth Hunters are living embodiments of his wrath. Nearly twice the size of a Dryad, masters of sword, bow and scythe, they are strong enough to tear a Chaos warrior in two and tough enough to shrug off the hardest blows. Agile, graceful and stoic, they display little of the whimsy of some of their kin – they display absolute purpose, calm as ancient oaks, deeply focussed on their battles.

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components necessary to assemble three Kurnoth Hunters, armed with a choice of greatswords, scythes or greatbows. One model can be assembled as a huntmaster, with a special head crest and weapon, and the kit contains seven additional spites. Supplied with three Citadel 50mm Round bases. 99120204018_KurnothHunters06 99120204018_KurnothHunters07 99120204018_KurnothHunters08

Tree-Revenants $37

99120204016_TreeRevenant08

Merciless, fast and graceful, Tree-Revenants have a number of duties in a sylvaneth Household. Patrol, defence, conquering and crushing; huge bands of Tree-Revenants, with their sombre outlook and delicate limbs make the bulk of a Household force. Everything they do is reminiscent of the Protectors of ancient days – their intention is is to uphold and strengthen the memory of those beings.

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components necessary to assemble five Tree-Revenants, armed with a variety of enchanted blades (swords, scythes, an axe and a pick are included.) One model can be assembled as a Scion, wielding a Protector Glaive, one can be assembled as a Glade Banner and one can be assembled with Waypipes. Supplied with five Citadel 32mm Round bases. 99120204016_TreeRevenant07
This kit can also be used to assemble five Spite-Revenants.

99120204016_SpiteRevenant01

Branchwych $23

99070204002_SylvanethBranchwych01

Druidic practitioners of sacred life magic, protectors of the clans’ soulpod glades, Branchwyches are greatly respected for their abilities as commanders and sorcerous advisors. The sombre responsibility of harvesting their fallen comrades after battle is theirs, lending them infamously short tempers and stunning ferocity when roused to anger. Branchwyches are accompanied by Bittergrubs, creatures of voracious appetite whose powerful jaws can cut through flesh and bone with ease.

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components necessary to assemble a Branchwych, armed with a Greenwood Scythe and accompanied by a Bittergrub. Comes supplied with one Citadel 32mm Round base. 99070204002_SylvanethBranchwych04

 

Battletome: Sylvaneth $49.50

60030204006_SylvanethBattletomeENG01

The spirit­song rises, and the sylvaneth march to war!

The air sings with glorious life magic as the children of Alarielle surge into battle. The reborn goddess of war leads from the front as glorious Wyldwoods burst forth from the heaving ground, called into being by ancient spirits. Determined to protect the Realm of Life, mighty Wargroves advance, crushing enemies with the inexorable strength of nature. Outcasts and Free Spirits strike suddenly and without warning, slaughtering the foe mercilessly to cleanse the tainted land. The sylvaneth’s rebirth will be remembered as a harbinger of absolute vengeance.

Chaos Dreadhold: Crucible $100

99120299032_ChaosDreadholdCrucible09

The forces of Chaos are known as fearsome conquerors, maddened champions of fear and fury who slaughter remorselessly and without mercy, with no regard for morals or respect for the fallen. Even the weapons of their bested foes are scavenged, and put to dread purpose – feeding the Crucible, a terrifying reminder of the Blood God’s dominion. A vast cauldron atop the towers of the Chaos Dreadhold, the Crucible melts down the weapons and artefacts of the fallen with the rage of Khorne, using the resulting magical energies to loose powerful bolts upon the battlefield.

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components necessary to build a Crucible, fiery basin of the Chaos Dreadhold. Designed to fit in with the rest of the Chaos Dreadhold scenery pieces, this kit can be added to a massive fortress or used on its own as a centrepiece for exciting battles in the Age of Sigmar. Full rules are included: the Crucible doesn’t just look cool, it can be used as a weapon, but beware the potential backlash from the daemonic spirits within… 99120299032_ChaosDreadholdCrucible06 99120299032_ChaosDreadholdCrucible05 99120299032_ChaosDreadholdCrucible08 99120299032_ChaosDreadholdCrucible07

Lots of goodies this week for Age of Sigmar – Have at it folks!

  • dave long island

    Boy I could really go for a Branchwych right now on rye with extra mayo and a pickle on the side.

    • Countdiscount

      “The most evil sandwich ever created. Forged in darkness from wheat harvested in hell’s half acre. Baked by Beelzebub. Slathered with mayonnaise beaten from the evil eggs of dark chicken force-fed to dogs by the hands of a one eyed mad man. Cheese boiled from the rancid teat of fanged cow. Layered with 666 separate meats from an animal which has maggots for blood.”

      • dave long island

        lol… well ya put it like that, heck I’ll have two! 🙂

      • Pedwidge

        The most evil part: claims it is a foot long, but it’s only 11 inches. bwahahahaha!

  • Loki Nahat

    doesnt look like anything we can use in 40k, pass

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      You can’t use a Chaos Tower?

    • Darth Bumbles

      I was thinking of calliing them counts as daemons and using thrm in my Chaos army.

  • JP

    The Crucible is the size of a Bastion and it’s $100? That’s truly obscene.

    • Gunsheeplol

      “© Games Workshop Limited”

      Hrm, must totally mean its a limited, one-time only release then.

      • JP

        “Limited” is only stamped onto models that will be produced for a limited time. Every limited edition model has it, regular production models do not.

        • Gunsheeplol

          Some of the Stormcast and Bloodbound eg. the knight heraldor have it. They’ve been out for almost a year now. It doesn’t mean what you think it means.

          • JP

            Weird. Why have some models with it and some without? This only confirms what I’ve always believed. That the only thing consistent about GW is how inconsistent they are.

          • Countdiscount

            So your speculation confirms your suspicion …. got it

          • JP

            Prove me wrong.

          • Countdiscount

            You’re making the claim, so the burden of proof is on you, and you’ve provided none.

          • JP

            Passing the buck , eh? [Shrugs] Okay. How is GW inconsistent? Let’s count it off.

            1. “We’re not a rules company.” Pushes model sales with rules creep.

            2. They claim to want to grow the hobby with face time. Yet they make their own stores basically unusable as places for people to meet and play and make the rules for Independent Retailers so oppressive that it’s very difficult for them to sell or promote the product.

            3. Their point system is intended to balance the game, yet the only thing they do with it is constantly unbalance the game by giving hideous advantages to a select few armies.

            4. Every time they introduce a new core mechanic, they create advantages for some armies, but then totally f*ck over other armies. (Ala new Flyer rules and Tyranids or the new Psychic Phase and highly psychic armies or Overwatch and shooty armies) And do NOTHING about it. (“Yeah, f*ck those nid players cause they haven’t bought anything in AGES anyway.”)

            5. Their “solution” to fixing problems – “If it’s already broken, BREAK it some more.” Ala Eldar Craftworlds. Meanwhile, when something really needs attention, they just ignore it. Ala Tyranids. (They really like using Nids as a punching bag don’t they?)

            6. Here’s a model bundle. No Discount.

            7. “We’re not a rules company.” Pushes out so called “Limited Edition” books for triple the price and gives practically nothing to justify it. Deja vu.

            8. Number eight. Khorne is pleased. “Durr, we raised the prices, but our profits keep shrinking… what’s wrong, hyuck?” (Okay, this one’s just a straight jab.)

            9. “We give you lots of options in the codex entry.” But the model kits don’t have all the options. Or even their default options. OOPS. Like the poor dreadnought that STILL doesn’t come with a Multimelta, and that’s his base loadout.

            10. Producing units that can’t even fufill their intended function. “Here’s the Tyranid’s new shiny AA unit, the Crone!” Can’t shoot a flyer down to save it’s own life. (They seriously hate nids.)

            11. Making rules for things, then making new rules that negate those, and not going back to correct the contradiction. “Here’s a rule to make it so Leman Russes can fire all their guns at full BS!” OOPS. Ordnance and Snap Shots makes all their other guns useless anyway. Now we’ve got a slow vehicle that only fire one weapon effectively. GREAT JOB F*CKNUGGETS!

            I could go on, but I’m tired and need to sleep. Maybe I’ll continue this tirade tomorrow if I’m bored enough.

          • Countdiscount

            Oh good lord. You spent a lot of time typing out your bitterness and didn’t even touch your speculation. You know, the thing I was actually talking about, and you never provided proof of.

            You claim- Limited means limited production on a model, and them putting limited on some line models like Stormcast is an inconsistency.

            The truth- unless you work for GW or know someone in the know that you trust, we don’t know why they put “Limited” on anything since it’s on some things and not others.

            The term limited after the GW name and year could just as easily have something to do with some legal consideration that isn’t always in play for every model they produce.

            It’s just speculation, and you can’t confirm anything from speculation.

          • JP

            HA HA HA! This is HILARIOUS! We’re not even on the same page in this debate! You totally missed my point where this started! The post you responded to was NEVER about the stupid stamps on the sprue. It was about how GW can’t keep their ducks in a row! And you thought it was still about the sprues! If you wanted it to be about the sprues you should’ve responded to a post that was ACTUALLY about the sprues! That was a good laugh. I needed that today. Thanks!

          • Countdiscount

            I’m glad you can gain some enjoyment from your confusion. Most people would just argue their point, but I guess if you don’t have one, this is the best you can do.

            You were specifically implying your speculation about the word limited on the sprues, and it not being consistently applied to just limited models, confirms your belief that GW is always inconsistent. We both know this. You’re not stupid, just trying to win an internet argument, when you know I’m right. You don’t know the purpose of putting limited on some sprues and not others, therefore this fact supports nothing you said. You believe GW is inconsistent, go right ahead, but your speculation doesn’t support the conclusion.

            Now we come to the thrilling conclusion of this conversation… will JP admit I’m right and that he doesn’t know why GW puts limited on some things and not others. Will he continue to deflect and play ignorant, as if he can’t comprehend the course of this conversation, or will he actually try to prove why GW puts limited on some sprues and not others when he has no real clue.

            Stay tuned intrepid readers….

          • JP

            My not understanding was pretty clear when I asked the question before you even showed up. And you trying to rub salt in it is just a d1ck move. So you can stop being a troll and just leave it be.

          • Countdiscount

            Me? You’ve been d1ckish in every reply to me starting with that passing the buck comment.

            It just boils down to you know I’m right, but won’t admit it. Don’t start s*** you can’t finish, or be a big enough person to admit when you’re wrong.

          • JP

            Is asking the question not an admission of not understanding where you’re from? And no, you’re not right. Because you’ve been seeing what you want to see, inferring things I never even said. Seriously. I make one off-handed comment and everything you’ve said about it since has been fabricated from thin air with no basis whatsoever in anything I’ve actually written. There’s no wrong doing to admit to when this whole exchange has been a one sided farce because you’re somehow convinced I was talking about one thing when I was actually talking about something completely different. If you can’t get past that, it’s your problem, not mine. My self-esteem isn’t so low that I’m going to give in to attempts by a stranger to badger me into admitting guilt over something that was never an issue in the first place.

          • Countdiscount

            I didn’t fabricate a thing. First you say you weren’t even talking about the sprues, then when I pointed out that you were, it’s time to get offended and butt hurt someone called you out for it. Stop being a d1ck and I wouldn’t even need to continue this.

          • JP

            If you feel the need to pound your chest and browbeat a stranger into saying uncle over something as petty as the topic of this thread knock yourself out. Obsess over it as much as you want. I’ll no longer respond to such brutish provocation, and I’ll forget you ever existed in about ten minutes. Goodbye.

          • Countdiscount

            Aww… but I love you 🙁

          • ZeeLobby

            Or they really are limited. Wasn’t the original AoS rumor that they’d be phasing out models and adding new ones throughout the course of AoS?

    • Koschei

      Limited as in the descriptive name of the company, ‘A limited company’ as opposed a limited edition, Games Workshop Limited is part of Games Workshop Group.

  • hobdoglin

    Are those new terrain trees in the background?

    • Aezeal

      hmmm that would be nice.. if decently priced since they seem to have much weight in plastic

  • Admiral Raptor

    I’ll be picking up that Generals Handbook, it’s got a nice price point on it.

    Does anyone know if those dice are wooden, or just designed to look that way?

    • doughouseman

      Absolutely – The General is priced to sell, they want people to buy it, love the rules and get hooked again.

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      I thought so too, since I have some wooden dice that look exactly like those but the description says plastic 🙁

      • nuggy

        I think they reference the plastic container, because the dices really look wooden.

  • Jared van Kell

    In All-Gates only the Genesis Gate is sealed by the Sylvanrth and the Stormcast Eternals all the other attacks on the other six Chaos held gates are pushed back.

  • Shiwan8

    So, can I play genestealers in this?

  • Randy Randalman

    The Sylvaneth release would be perfect if Drycha didn’t have honeycombs on her Ghostkeel armor. Otherwise fantastic stuff!

  • Jay Shepherd

    Game is really looking out there anymore. Wow.

  • When will you guys learn to not always only post $ prices?

  • vlad78

    I only like the dices. (I really like them, they would have been perfect for a wood elf army) Every thing else shows GW lack of talented designers. Technically those kits are top notch but Alarielle seems practically impossible to carry without breaking it and bad taste is the order ot the day.
    Only the giant treeman is fine and his lesser brothers (to a certain degree, I don’t like the archers)

    Everything else is ugly imho.

    I still have to see something that will catch my eyes in the AOS new range.

    • Gunsheeplol

      Please tell me more about how you hate AoS, I find it fascinating.

      • vlad78

        lol forum jousting is fine.
        I have no hate for AOS, just pure contempt ATM.

        My hate is kept solely for the process and the people within GW who led to AOS.

        Back in the days, warhammer was designed by people who initially put into it what they thought would be cool.

        AOS has been designed from bottom up in accordance to management ideas stating that the game and the lore isn’t important, only the miniatures matters and they need to push away from fantasy stereotypes in order to protect ips and keep a high pricing.

        As an example, think about why did GW abandon ranks and files, because they felt AOS doesn’t need to be a cross over between historical wargame and fantasy games. Abandoning ranks would let them focus ont the minis.

        And the studios has to make a game with those ideas.

        It’s not because it’s GW that it is automatically a good game.

        • Dan Brugman

          Actually as an initial skeptic, I’ve found I really love the way AoS plays, the only thing that kept me from jumping in was the lack of an easy way to play pitched battles. The general’s handbook resolves that for me and I see no reason not to play now.

          I also find we play smaller games since we don’t have ranks and so the cost barrier of entry has actually come down as a result.

          As far as the aesthetic is concerned, that’s just your opinion, just like it’s just my opinion that the new Orruk models look cool. You not liking something doesn’t make it a bad sculpt or “sculpted for the wrong reasons” or whatever. Nor does your nostalgia for a previous edition –one that some people loved and others hated– make the current one bad.

          I personally like the mechanics and just needed a way to balance it, so I’ll play the new system. If you don’t like it than play another game. I don’t mean that to say don’t share your opinion here, I just don’t see why everyone on both sides of this feels the need to deride everyone and be so flippant all the dang time.

          • Aezeal

            Agree, I’d love to play more and I probably will.
            I really love the new models except the orc mega boar boys (I dislike the head of the boar).
            Stormcasts I love.. got a few of them (late I bought the kit after much deliberation last march so wasn’t suckered into it just because it was the new set) and might use them as allies but I like the mega knight look on them.
            I played woodelf so these sylvaneth releases make me happy too.

            I don’t really understand why the handbook is already being praised as a solution when it’s not even released yet. I mean if it’s an unbalanced pile of tosh or is quickly unbalanced by new releases, then did it really do what you wanted it to?

      So I think they look really nice, I wonder what makes our oppinions differ so much.

      I come from a 3d design background, and can appreciate the sculpting and attention to detail. (no obvious mirroring, no sloppy creases, no ‘hard surface’ cliches)

      I really like the insect theme, which I haven’t seen in a GW product before.

      What do you think of the centipedes and bees, and what is it about the tree elves that you dislike?

        They’re too ott for my personal liking. I’m not a high fantasy fan, actually i hate high fantasy.

        • SupPupPup

          Yeah they are very high fantasy. They do have a bit of an Arthur Rackham look to them and I think painted up in more natural muted tones they would look a lot better.

          After painting up the stormcast in ‘natural’ colours they are much nicer.

          The new Sylventh are They are not really to my tastes (don’t really like elvish things) but I can see the appeal.

    If GW would just spell out how many models I should have to play a “normal” game I’d get into AoS.

  • Aezeal

    Could anyone please tell this lazy guy whether these package deals are actually deals or as usual just a package

    • Aezeal

      I checked.. no deals in there.

  • Aezeal

    The new revenants and hunters are kinda expensive? 5 32 mm base units for 29 euro.. instead of 16 dryads for 33 euro?

  • Beyond Boredom

    Too many thin spiky bits on those elves for my liking. Plus, my old (not really od at all) Aralielle model was fine, no need for dung beetles.

  • Kritarion

    Why do they put the icon on the 1 instead of the 6 so often? I want to be happy to see that sign, not groan.

  • jkp

    Is it just me or is there an alternative front piece for the Drycha Hamadreth in the bottom middle of the second sprue? I was hoping there would be an option to cover her chest, since I often paint with my daughters and all-out nudity on a mini seems a little weird in that context.

  • ZeeLobby

    Symbols on the 1? Gotta be like a running joke at GW at this point…

  • Anti-Gravity

    I use Wood Elf bits for conversions for my Chaos forces. The branches on the tree models are excellent ‘tentacles’ or growths for all types of models to Chaos them up.

    Um, that is not a cube.
