Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Firestorm: $65

60010299011_SeasonofWarENG01

For millennia armies have battled for control of the region known as the Flamescar Plateau, seeking to unearth its priceless treasures and hidden relics. Here lies a weapon of supreme destructive power, sought by armies from across the Mortal Realms. Whoever can harness its might will be gifted the power to utterly destroy their enemies. Yet claiming dominion over this war-torn land will be no simple task…

In The Box

This box contains everything you need to run a multiplayer campaign of Warhammer Age of Sigmar in the war-torn lands of the Flamescar Plateau. Whether you want to play Skirmish games, or massive, epic battles with thousands of points, this set makes it easy to organise, set up and play. It includes a large map of the Flamescar Plateau, divided into 23 regions for your campaign players to fight over – there are 256 map markers in the box, which are reusable stickers that can be peeled off and attached elsewhere as needed. Emphasis has been placed on speed when designing this box – we want your admin to be as minimal and fast as possible, so you can get on with actually playing through your campaign!

In the included 64-page book, you’ll find a brief history of the Realmgate Wars, along with descriptions of important Sigmarite cities and the Flamescar Plateau itself – the expansive region of the Realm of Fire, once ruled over by a magocracy known as the Agloraxi, over which your campaigns will be fought. It also features an extensive, easy to follow guide to actually running your campaigns – challenging opponents, picking a Battleplan, using Time of War Rules, how to use the included campaign cards, building garrisons and mustering your armies in the regions you control, and some special rules. These special rules add secret objectives allowing players to use some initiative and cunning, rules for trade and negotiation, and possible sudden death victories – these rules can drastically change the flow and outcome of a campaign. There are also 9 sets of Allegiance Abilities for use in the campaign – 6 of these represent the major Sigmarite cities found on the map, with one each for the forces of Death, Destruction and Chaos. These include battle traits, command traits and artefacts of power for your armies to use.

There’s also a set of 131 campaign cards – some of these, the Domain cards, are used to define the size of the armies that are fighting, and provide players with resources to call upon, such as points to spend on re-rolls and Stratagems; the others are used for special rules, and for keeping track of your Glory points – acquire these in order to win! The cards players are using are stored in one of the 4 provided card envelopes, coloured to match the 4 Grand Alliances.

A quick and easy way to get started with a Death Guard collection, this bundle gives you everything you need to field a Patrol Detachment, as outlined in the Warhammer 40,000 book. When using this Detachment, the nearby presence of Typhus enhances the abilities of the Poxwalkers, making them far more resilient and likely to overwhelm your opponents on the gaming table.

Foul Blightspawn: $25

99070102002_DeathGuardFoulBlightSpawn03

A revolting stench wafts around the Foul Blightspawn, his corruption clotting the air itself. Breath rattles through pus-slick tubes as he cranks the rusted handle of his malignant churn, bellows wheezing and plague slop roiling in the incubatum upon his back. Some foes stare in bewilderment at this strange performance. Some direct their fire at the Blightspawn, shots rebounding from his armour ot thumping harmlessly through rotten flesh in sprays of effluence. The wise, however, flee for their lives.

99070102002_DeathGuardFoulBlightSpawn02

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Foul Blightspawn. He carries an enormous, sinister tank on his back – the incubatum – brimming with foul and noxious disease, which he squirts indiscriminately with malign cheerfulness. His plague sprayer in his left hand drips this vile concoction with no thought for where it may land. A crack in his armour shows the unpleasant extent of his modifications; the gears and pistons of a malignant churn are forcibly driven into his guts.

99070102002_DeathGuardFoulBlightSpawn01

His armour, as well as being covered in rot, features plenty of icons of Nurgle, skulls and rust. There’s even an optional Nurgling clutching a blight grenade to be added to the base. This kit comes as 8 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base.

Warriors of the Great Cities: Anvilgard: $170

99120299044_AnvilGuard01

Anvilgard is a heavily fortified port city that borders the sweltering jungle of the Charrwind Coast, first founded under the direction of the Anvils of the Heldenhammer. Surrounding Anvilgard on all sides is a dense, sprawling jungle encircled by a series of active volcanoes – the Order Draconis ride out into this wilderness every day, testing themselves against the ferocious monsters that populate the area.

99120299046_TempestsEye01

Tempest’s Eye is a city carved out of the rock of the gigantic Titanspear Mountain, a multi-level metropolis linked together by winch-lifts and cable carriages. The enemies of Order long ago learned to fear the warriors of the Aetherguard, who call Tempest’s Eye their home; as do the Tempest Lords, noble heroes who rule with stern benevolence.

99120299045_Hammerhal01

The Twin-tailed City – a sprawling metropolis that stretches from the ashen plain of Aqshy to the fecund jungles of Ghyran, Hammerhal was founded upon the victories achieved in the Realmgate Wars. Though the forces of ruin and disorder have long sought to despoil this wondrous testament to the will of the God-King, the Twin-tailed City has endured, and only grows in might with every passing season.

Blightlord Terminators: $60

99120102074_DeathGuardBlightLordTerminators06

Blightlord Terminators are relentless and unstoppable, elite Death Guard warriors forever bound to Cataphractii armour. They stalk forward with guns blazing, mercilessly mowing down rank after rank of enemy. Combi-weapons, plague spewers and blight launchers add to the fusilade, reducing infantry and vehicles to slop.

99120102074_DeathGuardBlightLordTerminators04

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a unit of 5 Blightlord Terminators. Resplendent in their cracked, rotting Cataphractii shells, they are bursting with squirming tentacles, covered all over with pustulent signs of Nurgle’s gifts: spikes, boils, grinning toothed maws and vile respirators all feature heavily. Each comes armed with a combi-bolter, and a choice of either a balesword or bubotic axe – there are some other, equally unpleasant weapons included, meaning one model can replace their combi-bolter with either a plague spewer, reaper autocannon or blight launcher, and another can carry a fearsome double-handed flail of corruption.

99120102074_DeathGuardBlightLordTerminators01

The Champion of the unit can take combi-weapon upgrades; there’s a plasma, flamer and melta variant available. There are 8 variant heads available, a mix of helmeted and bare. None of them are especially pleasant to gaze upon…

The Blightlord Terminators come as 64 components, and are supplied with 5 Citadel 40mm Round bases.

Typhus – Herald of the Plague God: $40

99120102076_DeathGuardTyphus03

Typhus, Lord of Mortarion’s First Plague Company and Host of the Destroyer Hive, is the most feared of all Plague Fleet commanders. From his ancient ship, the Terminus Est, Typhus spreads contagion and misery across the galaxy. That Typhus has been truly blessed by Nurgle is indisputable. For ten thousand years he has been a blight on Imperial worlds; in the wake of Typhus’ fleet a virulent plague spreads, creating plague zombies whose bites carry the disease to new victims. Billions have died and been returned to undeath, as the proliferating energies of Chaos distort and mutate this disease to ever-more terrifying vectors.

99120102076_DeathGuardTyphus

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to build Typhus, Herald of Nurgle, Host of the Destroyer Hive. This is an appropriately large model, covered head to toe in rot, pitted Cataphractii armour, skulls, Nurgle icons and spikes – there’s even room for a Nurgling to hitch a ride, clinging to his waist. He holds aloft a master-crafted manreaper, taller even than Typhus himself, which features a host of unpleasant effects of corruption and wear; it’s clearly a blade that has seen a lot of action.

99120102076_DeathGuardTyphus01

The chimney found on his back is belching forth a vile hive swarm with impressive effect – some of the flies bursting forth are the size of a Nurgling. Included is a scenic element to his base, as he stands with a foot resting arrogantly on some toppled Imperial masonry.

This kit comes as 15 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 50mm Round base.
