Your collection starts here! When you get your Citadel Crusader folder, it includes the first three cards in the set – Welcome Citadel Crusader, and two Welcome to our Worlds cards, for Age of Sigmar and Dark Vengeance. These cards represent the first steps in the Warhammer hobby, learning some of the history of our worlds.
The Crusader cards are all about celebrating your hobby progress, so let’s look at the first cards and what you have to do to add them to your collection!

There is a card for everything almost:

Card 4, The Age of Sigmar. This card is earned by taking part in an introductory game of Warhammer Age of Sigmar, taking your first steps in commanding warriors in the mighty struggles of the Mortal Realms.

Card 10, Armies On Parade. Once per year, we host the worldwide event Armies On Parade, where literally hundreds of thousands of models are put on display in Games Workshop and Warhammer stores. Each hobbyist who enters can claim this card to celebrate taking part!

Card 13, Heralds of Heldenhall. Like the God-King’s Blessing, this card can only be earned once per year – on the anniversary of the store itself!

Pretty neat little way to entice new folks into the hobby for sure. Between this and the new Battle For Vedros units I would expect there to be a ton new hobbyists world-wide this holiday season.
