It's a New Year and Games Workshop is looking to get you some new figures. If you've been wanting to get into Age of Sigmar, but there's not been a starter set you've liked, perhaps the new Aether War one will do it. It pits the forces of Tzeentch againt the Kharadron Overlords. Even if you're not in the market for a new starter, there's new Battletomes for both of those forces. You can put your name down on the list to get all of these when they're released next week, along with some other cool items.
From the website:
Enter a battle of madness, aethermatics and magic in Aether War – a massive battlebox that pits the ingenious Kharadron Overlords against the insidious Disciples of Tzeentch in fierce airborne warfare! Discover the lands of the Spiral Crux, assemble your armies, and do battle in the skies above!
This set contains two armies of miniatures, all for less than you'd pay getting them separately and including two characters currently only available in this set – the Endrinmaster in Dirigible Suit and Magister on Disc of Tzeentch. You'll be able to build two armies right out of the box, then play through a mini-campaign with 3 narrative battleplans. Bespoke rules for aerial combat can be used with the models in this set and in your mainline games to add new strategic challenges to your battles, while rich lore explores the ongoing battle for the Realm of Metal. Whether you're starting an army, expanding one or looking for a cracking few evenings of gaming with a friend, this set is for you.
This set contains 18 plastic Citadel Miniatures, including:
1x Endrinmaster with Dirigible Suit, the ideal leader for your sky-fleets and currently exclusive to this set
6x Skyriggers – buildable as Endrinriggers or Skywardens
1x Grundstok Gunhauler – a fast and mobile weapons platform armed with your choice of cannon
Disciples of Tzeentch:
1x Magister on Disc of Tzeentch – an airborne master of magic currently only available in this set
