Come see the new starter releases for getting into Games Workshop’s Age of Sigmar on the CHEAP!

If you have been wanting to checkout Age of Sigmar, but were feeling the burn at the register GW has you covered.

This week we have the smaller starter set that features at least $60 in miniatures if you compare them to the other four easy to build kits (far below) that they contain.

The new kits feature newly rendered sprues containing the “easy to build” models from the Age of Sigmar Starter from last year.

Plus the new “mini-starter” comes with some very cool warscroll printouts for tabletop use, plus a mini rulebook for the Age of Sigmar that contains 4 scenarios for play.

Overall I think this is a great product for anyone looking to try out Age of Sigmar on the cheap.

Containing everything you need to get started with exciting games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar, this box is the perfect starting point. Two powerful forces – the heroic Stormcast Eternals and Khorne’s unstoppable Bloodbound – meet in savage combat to control the destiny of the mortal realms!
In this box, you’ll find all the items you need to start playing games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar:

Miniatures

  • 3 Stormcast Eternals Liberators: steel-souled heroes of Order, hurled down from the skies to meet Chaos head-on;
  • 2 Stormcast Eternals Retributors: clutching weapons forged of ensorcelled sigmarite, they call upon bursts of violent sky magic;
  • 3 Khorne Bloodbound Blood Warriors: muscled, aggressive fighters who shrug off even the most powerful blows, such is their bloodlust;
  • 5 Khorne Bloodbound Bloodreavers, mortal followers of the Blood God, eager to prove their worth through slaughter.

Gaming Content

The box comes with a guidebook containing:

  • an introduction to the world of Warhammer Age of Sigmar – who are the Stormcast Eternals, who are the Khorne Bloodbound, and why are they sworn to destroy one another?
  • all the rules you need in order to play games right away, in an easy to follow format;
  • 4 Battleplans – scenarios for your games, featuring special rules and new ways to play: destroy all your foes, protect a specific miniature or fend off waves of increasingly powerful enemies, with victory conditions, objective and tips simply explained;
  • 4 large-format Warscroll cards – these are handy reference cards featuring the rules and abilities your miniatures can call upon, featuring striking artwork;
  • a rangefinder printed on the back of the book, and 7 dice to make the fateful rolls that will decide who is the victor and who will be annihilated;
  • hints and tips on where to go next – how to expand your Stormcast Eternals and Khorne Bloodbound armies, where to get Citadel paint sets with which to paint them, and which books from the range will help you to bring the mortal realms to life on your gaming table.

The box also contains a construction guide designed to make assembling your miniatures easy to assemble, and enough Citadel 32mm and 40mm Round bases to stand them on.
