The rumor drips are turning into full on leaks. Get in here and find out the backstory, pricing and more for the new Age of Sigmar!
Via Captain Citadel
Age of Sigmar will be rather large gents. No armies will be phasing out, no army books for that matter. It will be a bit like chess, easy to learn but difficult to master. It can be played to any scale almost, small or large.
Rules will be free and releases this Saturday the 4th.
The story revolves around Sigmar’s disappearance from the Fantasy world as he set up kingdoms of warriors to battle Chaos in this new age.
The starter will cost $125 and contain the two factions that has been rumored previously. The models will all be on round bases to be more dynamic (similar to 40k’s stance).
New Age of Sigmar Sale Sheet. Checkout these highlights folks;
“Don’t worry. Warhammer Fantasy miniatures stay relevant. Old miniatures can still be used, however how you will play them has changed.””On the 4th of July all the new rules will be available digitally on the GW website for FREE – It will explain to you how the new game works”“The new rules for each miniature will also be in the newly rebranded boxes.
Square bases and movement trays are gone.”“The new and rebranded products will now come with oval and round bases. However don’t worry, as you can play the game with any base shape”
We have been informed the Age of Sigmar rules will include rules for EVERY EXISTING WFB miniature. So there will be zero miniatures that become obsolete.
Well that certainly clears up a bit of confusion. $125 doesn’t seem to bad for the goods you get either. Plus Games Workshop promise to support this release for ‘years’ helps create consumer confidence as well. I like the idea of dynamic posing sorta like Mordhiem I suppose, but on round bases. Looks like the movement tray may be departing us after all, but don’t scrap your bases and trays yet folks!
This release keeps looking better and better everyday!
