Games Workshop: New Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Skirmish Game, Sigmarite Mausoleum and Skirmish Warbands

Games Workshop announced the long-awaited pre-order for their new highly anticipated Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Skirmish Game along with cool plastic Sigmarite Mausoleum scenery and skirmish warbands.

Lying forgotten in the Desert of Bones, the ruins of the spectacular ancient city Shadespire are brimming with untold riches and power, ripe for the taking. Though it is now a mere skeleton after being put to the torch by Nagash, the city's treasures remain, a morbid hint at the splendour that existed before Shadespire’s soul was torn away…

Take command of a small warband of warriors and put your skill, wit and determination to the test with Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Skirmish: a book containing the information and rules needed to fight Skirmish battles – including a hard-fought campaign amidst the ruins of Shadespire! Assemble a small warband of single models and take to the gaming table, building renown and adding to your warband with every glorious victory.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Skirmish

Skirmish Rules

A set of simple modifications for the core rules of Warhammer Age of Sigmar that introduce skirmish battles – small-scale, intense fights between anything from a trio of models to a marauding band of fifteen models and upwards; Details of battling in skirmish formation – models fight as individuals, rather than groups, meaning each model is treated as a single unit. This alters the way certain effects and abilities work in a subtle way, and emphasises fast, aggressive, tactical gameplay; The General: each player chooses a general from the Heroes in their warband, who can use a command ability, artefact of power, and three new wizard spells from the tables supplied in the Skirmish rules; Battleshock: again, tweaked from the core Warhammer Age of Sigmar rules to encourage fast, brutal gaming, Battleshock can turn the tide of war in a single dice roll – you better hope your general is stoic in the face of slaughter! All-new command abilities, artefacts of power and mysterious terrain rules; Clarification regarding summoning and generation of extra attacks and hit rolls in Skirmish games.

The Shadespire Campaign

Included in the book is a linear narrative campaign, pitting two - or with some judicious tweaking, more – players against each other in a series of brutal skirmishes as your warbands fight bitterly over the incredible treasures of Shadespire. This campaign comprises six Battleplans representing a story from the murky dawn of your warbands’ first day on the outskirts of Shadespire, through to the climactic battle that decides the outcome of the whole campaign. Between games, your warbands can earn and spend renown – the more renown earned, the more glory-seekers will join your general on his quest for treasure – and discover Rewards of Battle: charms, glyphs and relics that enhance the abilities of your warband in new and interesting ways.

Skirmish Matched Play

The true test of a general’s mettle is the meeting of equally-matched warbands, where tactics and strategy outweigh sheer numbers when deciding how the battle ends. This book contains a guide to putting together your own Matched Play Skirmish battles, with included points values allowing you to assemble matched warbands from models representing each of the four Grand Alliances. Any Battleplan from the General’s Handbook can be used in a Skirmish Matched Play game. Please note, you’ll need a copy of the Warhammer Age of Sigmar core rules (available as a free download) to use this book.

New Warhammer Age of Sigmar Sigmarite Mausoleum

A great addition to your Warhammer Age of Sigmar scenery collection, this is a set of grim, dark, foreboding and ineffably mysterious plastic tombs, walls, gates and statues that bring an air of the sinister to your gaming table. The set includes six mausoleums; classic examples of gothic tombs, two statues of Morr and a series of walls and gates that surrounds them. These walls are of course studded with many, many skulls of the unfortunate, along with their wrought ironwork and mossy stones… While they can be set up together, they also work well as individual terrain pieces that can be set up across the battlefield, perfect for Skirmish games. This plastic kit comprises 84 components or two Garden of Morr sets in one!
