That’s right, guys. As of this summer, you’ll have your pick of 3 great ways to play Warhammer Age of Sigmar. We couldn’t be more excited, and we’re certain you’ll love it too.

We’ll have more details for you soon. For now:

Open Play is probably the most similar to the way you play now, but there are new rules on the way to give you even more freedom, including the option for huge multi-player battles.

Narrative Play is as you’d expect – recreating the great stories and epic encounters from the Age of Sigmar. To help you forge your own stories within the Mortal Realms, there are also some really cool campaign rules and tools on the way as well.

Finally, Matched Play is something we know a lot of you have been keen to see. We’ve put these rules together in association with some of the world’s biggest tournament organisers, to create a new standard for balanced competitive play. And yes, it includes points values.


Okay Internet, go nuts.

Wow! man oh man this is happening. Games Workshop is listening to the community who as we’ve reported over the last few months competitively has turned their back on the system.

So where do we go from here? Anonymous sources have told Spikey Bits that it that the second organized play system (like Tank Shock) for the summer will be for Age of Sigmar, and not 40k.

Look for much much more on this story as we start to digest all the pieces and figure out exactly what this means for the community as a whole.

Is GW “Bringing Fantasy Back”?
