New Age Of Sigmar Terrain: Unboxed

  • Posted by

Check out two of the most affordable Age of Sigmar terrain pieces – the Magewrath Throne & Balewind Vortex.

These two kits are very affordable and their rules make them very desirable for nearly any Age of Sigmar army out there.



It’s not quite the high quality plastic we have gotten used to from Games Workshop but still a decent quality. Plus for the price point you can’t argue with it IMHO and the parts come already cut off the sprue which is kind of strange, but I think we can deal with it.


Ascend to the Throne is a special rule for the Magewrath Throne that allows any of your heroes within 15″ to use a command ability even though they are not your general, as long as your general is seated on the throne. That seems pretty good, time to shuffle around your general now?


The Balewind Vortex seems to be a must have if you have any wizards in your army. Models can not move within 3″ of the Vortex and the wizard can not be charged while on top of the Balewind Vortex. So that leaves the Wizard only able to be targeted by ranged attacks. While on top of the Balewind Vortex the caster doubles the range of it’s spells! That is just incredible! Summon bombs incoming?

A swirling, violently swaying vortex of fell energies that can be summoned by the most powerful wizards in the mortal realms and used as a platform from which to cast their spells, a Balewind Vortex is a terrifying sight to behold on the battlefield. When summoned, its howling gusts push any aggressors away from the wizard who called upon it, leaving him unmolested to blast away with the amplified magical abilities he gleans from the Vortex.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Balewind Vortex, a scenery piece for your games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar. Rules can be found in the tab on the right.


Magewrath Throne: $15

Constructed in an ancient time by powerful and insane wizards, these mighty thrones are highly sought after. A warlord who takes the throne can use the magic imbued within it to wreak wrath and ruin upon his enemies, amplifying the bravado and strength of his troops while demoralising and weakening the resolve of the foe.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Magewrath Throne, a scenery piece for your games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar. Rules can be found in the tab on the right.

Head over to Games Workshop to get your hands on these two must have pieces of terrain for any Age of Sigmar army!

    I dig the throne.

      Would look awesome inside a castle. Might pick one up at some point.

      They’re new to a lot of people, because there are a lot of new warhammer players now because of AoS.

    Bought the throne yesterday, decent sized kit for £10, but inferior quality to the minis. While simple to assemble there are no instructions (hey I’m thinking of the younger gamers!) and you have to remove the 2 pegs on the bottom of stone plinth or it wobbles on the table top

    • Aezeal

      lol yea those slotted into the skull pillar.. which isn’t there anymore 😀

  • EnTyme

    Death list idea:
    Necromancer (general)
    Wight King w/ Black Axe x2
    40 Skeletons
    Magewrath Throne
    Park the Necromancer on the throne and send in the skeletons. At 30+ skeletons, you’re looking at +2 attacks. Add in the command abilities of the Wight Kings and you have another +2, so 5 attack per model. Necromancer casts Vanhel’s Danse Macabre, and those skellies are piling in and attacking twice each combat phase. Under perfect conditions, you’re looking at 400 attacks per combat phase!!! Realistically, you’ll be lucky to get 30+ skellies into combat, and only a couple dozen will actually be in range of anything, but it’s just fun to think about.

    • Kritarion

      Great idea, except the thone is just regular terrain, and not summonable like the vortex.

      • EnTyme

        You could always just set up the throne as standard terrain and then race your opponent to it (or fly a Zombie Dragon over to block it until your Necromancer can get there).

  • Rhaen

    When they made the small update to the Magewrath Throne they could’ve at least removed the winged skull on the backrest for anything else so that it’d be usefull to anything other than VC as well…

  • Theik

    If these are new, I must be a time traveler because I have had those two standing in my display case for over a year.

  • Aezeal

    I wanted to ask wether the the throne fits better on the skulls now… but the skull pillar isn’t there anymore. Which explains the 2 pegs mentioned below since those slotted into the skull pedestal pillar
