Warhammer Fest Day One – The News So Far

Honestly, there’s far too much to write about in detail, and it’ll be mostly just copying from the Warhammer Community blog, so I urge you to go read that afterwards, at https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/05/11/warhammer-fest-live-blog-2gw-homepage-post-1/

In summary, though:

  • 2nd Edition of Age of Sigmar – June 2018
    • existing Battletomes should remain compatible, the new rules will be posted online, along with rules for any new miniatures as usual.
    • new starter set with Stormcast Eternals and Nighthaunt
    • new “cinematic magic” with miniatures representing spells
    • more background info on the Mortal Realms, including maps, maps, and more maps! (I’m thinking this may have something to do with the upcoming Age of Sigmar Roleplaying Game by Cubicle 7, too)
    • A new Stormcast Extremis Chamber – the Sacrosant Chamber, with engineers, magi, and priests.
    • The Hammerhal Herald, which looks like the AoS counterpart to 40K’s Regimental Standard.

  • Preview of Sisters of Battle for 40K – an advance miniature will be available at some point, before the main releases.

  • Adeptus Titanicus – this is the one I’ve been waiting for specifically.  Release set for August!

  •  Necromunda – next gang up is Cawdor.

Undoubtedly, there’ll be more news over the rest of the weekend!
