6 New Age of Sigmar 3.0 Battletomes: Rumors & Previews

kruleboyzBefore diving into the announcement, let’s cover some rumors about what battletomes might also be among the first releases for this new edition.

 

 

Maggotkin

We’ve also seen some Rumor Engines that hint toward some Nurgle-looking hints. So, if you play them, be on the lookout for an announcement soon.

Gloomspite Gitz

We’re not sure what new minis they will get, as their model line isn’t that old. Still, they will probably get a new champion or two, or at least a couple of reworks.

Ogors

A large portion of their units is from before the change over to AoS, meaning they haven’t been touched in years and years. This could be a massive overhaul, or if GW doesn’t feel like it, maybe they just redo a unit or two. Let’s just hope that’s not the case!

Beasts of Chaos

So, yeah, they need a rework and new minis! Maybe they and Ogors can come in a new starter box together with all new minis! One can dream, but according to these rumors, we don’t have that long to wait until we know for sure

With the rumors out of the way, the actual 2 books announced are Orruks and Stormcast. With all the new minis they are receiving and being in the Dominion box, they will be grabbing the first two books. Now that it’s confirmed, let’s check out the details!

New Age of Sigmar 3.0 Battletomes Announced

aos 3.0 orruk and stormcastAs well as the warscrolls for the units in Dominion, these books contain sumptuous new artwork and lore that delves deeper than ever before into each faction. They also expand on the awesome Path to Glory narrative campaign rules from the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Core Book.

Both books include new subfaction rules, and best of all, every battletome in the new edition contains a code that lets you access its rules in the upcoming Warhammer Age of Sigmar app, which is due to head into beta later this year.

The confirmation of digital codes is huge! No longer will you have to pay for separate digital licenses, which if you use both or just like having the option, is a huge new boon.

On another hand, looking at the covers we can see a slight redesign as is normal for new editions, making it easy to spot a current or previous edition book simply by that very clear solid-red spine.

What do you think about these confirmed and rumored factions for updated battle tomes? Did you pick up a Dominion Box?
