Tags : underworld chaos warcry







Hello again !!

The Warhammer : Age of Sigmar seminar for this Warhammer Fest is done and here what we have learned :

Warcry

Warcry is the new game by Games Workshop in the Mortal realm (Age of Sigmar universe). It's a Skirmish game inspired by both Necromunda and Kill Team, where Chaos Warband fight each others to the death or Glory in Varanspire the Archaon Citadelle. Games Workshop already announced that Non Chaos warband would be playable at start.

Warhammer : Warcry is set for release in July. It's a new game that will be supported my multiple future release (no details Yet).

To increase the Hype, warhammer tv team made a LARP video ^^

The SplinteredFangs

New Chaos Warband for Warhammer : Warcry

These guys might hail from the Realm of Life, but they’ve got nothing but death for their foes! And snakes – lots and lots of snakes. These guys show off facets of Chaos rarely seen on the tabletop, as one of the insidious murder cults who use cunning as much as brute force to claim victory. Just like with the Iron Golems and Untamed Beasts, the Splintered Fang show off new aspects of Chaos – there’s even an aelf amongst them!




Underworld Season 3

Shadespire Underworld, is the Games Workshop card game in the Age of Sigmar world. he's continuing his successful existence with loads of events around the globe. The season 2 is coming to an End and they already announced the season 3.

Also they spoiled a model :

General Handbook 2019

The General Handbook is the ultimate Game Supplement for Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
The Edition 2019 is split into 2 books.

Open Play
This year’s essential guide for gaming in the Mortal Realms is packed with content for every kind of player. For open play, a new Open War army generator means you’ll be able to rally your forces in moments, while close-quarters battles and Hidden Agendas offer fresh challenges for you to get your teeth into.

Narrative
For narrative players, you’ll be able to get stuck in with an in-depth set of rules for fighting in the cities and ruins of the Mortal Realms in Streets of Death. New mercenary companies allow you to add a selection of narrative-led, thematic units to your army. Perhaps you’ll employ the Maneaters of the Gutstuffers, or a Gargant from the notorious Grugg Brothers. Meanwhile, characterful name generators for loads of factions mean you’ll never be with our an appropriately epic moniker for your favourite Hero!

Matched Play
Matched play won’t just be receiving new battleplans, but rather a whole new way to play, aimed at making smaller games viable for tournaments and competitive events. Balanced around the 1,000-point mark, Meeting Engagements offer key twists on normal Warhammer Age of Sigmar gameplay, is fast to play and takes up a smaller space than a fully fledged game. This makes it ideal if you’re building up an army, fancy a new challenge or just want to squeeze as many gamers into your club as possible!

It's really interesting to see small points battle for Age of Sigmar getting focus. A lot of Small FLGS or Warhammer store do one day small Age of Sigmar tournaments but the game balance is always a bit meh. Now if we get Battleplan and "sutff" to play good games at 1k points sign me in !

Conclusion

-Warcry is going to be an Awesome Skirmish game in the Age of Sigmar setting.
-Shadespire Season 3 announced (never doubted it)
-Age of sigmar 1000 pt small tournament format
-General Handbook 2019 is 2 books instead of 1

/Cheers.
