The Realmgate Wars are pushing ahead and it looks like the Plaguefather is getting help from some allies from below…
Games Workshop Released some new pictures earlier this week but with all the Rabid Wulfen coverage they got swept under the rug…until now!

We already covered some of the major spoilers from this week’s White Dwarf. The Realmgate Wars: Balance of Power certainly looks to be a great addition and campaign book for Age of Sigmar. It’s interesting to see some attention given to the Skaven this time around in the painting section. The Nurgle Warscroll is also an interesting concept – it’s got a “named” character and his body guard that’s got some special rules. Maybe this will be a new thing for Age of Sigmar moving forward: More “named” units and warscrolls that use the “generic” model and rules in addition to a special rule.
I’m also liking all the extra Ice Magic! It seems appropriate this time of year for those of us north of the equator.
New powers arise in a massive, desperate series of quickly-escalating battles in the Mortal Realms.
The Realm of Life is falling apart. Athelwyrd has been destroyed. Alarielle and the sylvaneth flee, as Chaos begins to exert its festering grip; Realmgates are corrupted and even the Stormcast Eternals may not be enough to stop the putrefaction. In the Realm of Fire, the Skaven make their move against the Fyreslayers. In the Realm of Metal, Vandus Hammerhand leads a Stormhost in an attempt to stop the Lord of Change Kiathanus gaining indescribable power. And if these threats were not enough, the Exalted Grand Marshal of the Apocalypse himself makes his presence felt…
The Realmgate Wars: Balance of Power is Book 2 in the exciting Realmgate Wars saga! This book contains, alongside dramatic narrative advancing the story of Sigmar’s Stormcast Eternals’ attempt to restore Order to the mortal realms:
Four new Time of War sections – rules that anyone with any army can use for fighting in fantastical locations that wildly change the way Warhammer Age of Sigmar games are played;
Ten new Battleplans – any Warhammer Age of Sigmar army can be used to play out these scenarios, including desperate defence, a surprise assault and a special four-player Battleplan!
Forty-one Warscrolls and nine Warscroll Battalions covering the Stormcast Eternals, Nurgle Rotbringers, Sylvaneth, Fyreslayers, Deathlords, Skaven and Slaves to Darkness;
An awe-inspiring showcase of Citadel miniatures, with step-by-step painting guides for Skaven, Seraphon, Skeleton Warriors, Slaves to Darkness, Chaos Warriors, Stormcast Eternals and Fyreslayers;
Incredible artwork showing off the power and awe of the events sundering the Mortal Realms!
The Realmgate Wars: Balance of Power is a full-colour 304 page hardback.
Looks like we have a pest invasion…Gonna need more than just Rat Traps for this one.
