Stormcast, Sylvaneth & Bloodbound NEW Battalions



5 Start Collecting boxes are out for Age of Sigmar and last two unseen NEW Battalion Warscrolls are here!

The Start Collecting boxes are perhaps the most successful product series GW has put out in years.  Just a fantastic baragin and the perfect gateway drug into the game.

Think that to start playing Age of Sigmar you can purchase the $25 General’s Handbook and the $85 Start Collecting faction box of your choice and get playing.

This week saw new Start Collecting boxes for the following:

  • Sylvaneth
  • Stormcast Eternals
  • Flesh-eater Courts
  • Ironjawz
  • Khorne Bloodbound

And the following two Warscrolls are doing the rounds all over the tubes. The other three are here.

We will have to wait a tad longer on the Sylvaneth and Bloodbound Battalions, but they should be along soon enough.


~Come on, what’s your favorite Grand Alliance? Order, Chaos, Death, or Destruction?

  • Loving these battalions, all very fluffy. It is true they can’t be used in games with points? I haven’t read through the Handbook yet but apparently these cost 0 so can’t be used.

    • Blight

      Yeah only battalions with a pitched battle profile can be used in pitched battles. Suppose it makes sense these are starter boxes and people just starting out would be playing open anyway.

    • Randy Randalman

      There are battalions in the General’s Handbook with points costs listed. I imagine these ones will eventually get points, too, though the Start Collecting boxes are meant to be starter boxes to get people playing quickly.

    • Jamie Kelly

      Be nice if they keep up to date with points values for these. Shouldn’t be hard for them to include a points value on release (it’s not like they haven’t done this before…)

      • Matt Razincka

        Hoping for semi-regular updates with point values for these. Kinda disappointing that the book is already sort of out of date.
