AoS Shorts: Your Essential Guide to Age of Sigmar

Age of Sigmar Rumours, Teasers and Previews

Here you will find the current Warhammer Age of Sigmar rumours, teasers and previews. Games Workshop now have a consistent approach of teasing, previewing and revealing new releases for Warhammer Age of Sigmar – from studio previews at big events through to Black Library, Facebook, Hammerhal Herald and the Warhammer Community page. I’m pulling them all together here.

Blades of Khorne

Blades of Khorne are getting a new battletome after the Skaven and Flesh-Eater Courts battletomes as well as a new Skulltaker model and “Endless Prayers”. I presume the Endless Prayers will be summoned by Blood Tithe points. Despite everyone still waiting for Slaanesh, it is good to see some tweaks to a faction that hasn’t really seen much play in AoS2 (outside of Gore Pilgrims – well done again Matt Campbell, champion of CanCon 2019).

Hosts of Slaanesh

Hosts of Slaanesh are definitely coming. We have had the Wrath and Rapture box and a new battletome is pretty much guaranteed (to complete the set of four main Chaos Gods). In terms of new kits, everyone expects a new Greater Demon as the Keeper of Secrets definitely needs the pleasure of a new plastic kit like the Great Unclean One and Lord of Change.

Hosts of Slaanesh were not teased at the Las Vegas Open reveal so the wait may be longer than initially expected.

Forbidden Power – More Soul Wars

The Souls Wars will continue to be the main narrative arc for Warhammer Age of Sigmar in 2019. We’ve been promised a look into the consequences of the Necroquake – a released Slaanesh anyone?

We also now have a title “Forbidden Power: A Warhammer Age of Sigmar Expansion” and a teaser video with lots of cogs and a statement that the “Stormvaults open”. Expect a new Stormcast chamber to be opened this year as well as another Malign Sorcery type book.

New Endless Spells

More generic Endless Spells available for all Warhammer Age of Sigmar armies are coming in 2019.

Darkoath / Slaves to Darkness

Darkoath / Slaves to Darkness / Everchosen is a solid pick for an update in 2019. We have now had new releases for 3 of the 4 Malign Portents Harbingers and the Darkoath have a warband coming to Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault later this year.

Warcry – a new Age of Sigmar game

Probably the most intriguing and unexpected Las Vegas Open reveal was for Warcry, a new game for Warhammer Age of Sigmar that draws on elements from Warhammer Underworlds and Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team. Don’t expect Mordheim, but something completely new. Really interested to see what the Studio have come up with.

This artwork is just so atmospheric – can we expect small warbands of heroes in the wastes of Age of Sigmar?

Sylvaneth and Kharadron Overlords

We know that Sylvaneth and Kharadron Overlords warbands for Warhammer Underworlds are coming this year. And the Sylvaneth warband was previewed at the Las Vegas Open. Now the rumour, inference, wild guess, is that these warbands will also be accompanied by a new AoS 2 style battletome for these factions complete with Endless Spells and maybe a terrain piece for Kharadron Overlords. I’d love to see a skyport or refuelling station designed by Ray Dranfield!
