Games Workshop Taking Pre-orders for Seraphon Book for Age of Sigmar

Well, Age of Sigmar is changing a bit more terminology. You can do that sort of thing when the universe explodes and you get to make a new one. So the Lizardmen are no more. However, in their place are the Seraphon. They even use the same models and everything. Though some of the names there, too, have been changed (to protect the innocent?). Anyway, the new book for the army is available to pre-order from the GW webshop.

As usual, there’s a Limited Edition version if you feel so inclined. The regular book is 144 pages long and has the whole backstory of the Seraphon, Warscrolls for all the units, painting guides, and six battalion lists for how you can customize your forces. There’s also all the info about how to play Age of Sigmar. Hey, it’s just a couple pages, so why not have it in there?

    Um… are there really no new minis with this release, or did I miss something?

      GASP! It looks like the new book costs LESS than the previous two War Tomes. This book is 49.50- instead of the $58 that the previous two War Tomes have been.

      The LE version is still $140 (exactly the same as the previous two. All three LE books are still available, it seems).

      And they didn’t lower the page count to do it. The 49.50 book is 144 pages, while the previous books are 152 and 136. Eight pages both more and less.

      It still looks like a high priced book in the current miniatures gaming market, but it means that GW is capable of lowing prices on new products, and that’s a pretty big step for them.

      At a glance, the rules are the same as the ones for the ‘Lizardmen’ -you know, with some of the names changed, and there are pictures on some of the warscrolls now.

        The first wartome was kinda crummy. It was an overpriced introductory book with a lot of fluff. I’m…not entirely sure what it actually wanted to be.

        It was like the Warhammer 40K main book, except (since the rules are a few pages) with very little content. There were warscrolls for a small group of Chaos, Sigmar-wassits, and Eladrin (sorry, I don’t have the book nearby), but that was it.

        It was pretty, but insubstantial.

      It would seem just the new book, no minis at this time.
      Just some renamed items in the webshop. Why all of them have been put into the “pre-order” section of their site, I’m not sure.

        The packaging has changed.

        Plus, round bases.
