Age of Sigmar Second Edition: New Artefacts of the Mortal Realms

With the new edition of Warhammer Age of Sigmar come new artefacts for personalising and equipping your forces.  In this page, I cover everything we know about the artefacts and what they are likely to mean for your battles.

If you want all the news on Age of Sigmar Second Edition, check out my compilation page.  There are also specific coverage pages for the General’s Handbook 2018Sacrosanct ChamberNighthaunt, and Malign Sorcery.  So check those out too.


Every army can now select from a set of common realm-specific artefacts tables.  There are 84 artefacts available (each of the seven realms has 6 magical weapons and 6 trinkets, artefacts, or pieces of armour).  At the list-writing stage, you select the realm for your army and can choose to take one of the realm-specific artefacts instead of the ones that you would usually have access to.

These artefacts are available in the Malign Sorcery expansion set.
