Age of Sigmar has a new book available to order. It's called Soul Wars: Forbidden Power, and it pushes forward the Age of Sigmar lore. Giant vaults filled with unimaginable power have been revealed. Of course, everyone and their cousin are trying to get to those vaults first. This new book has a little something for everyone. Along with the book and sets, there's a whole ton of terrain pieces as well. This almost went in today's Terrain Corner post.
