AoS Shorts: Your Essential Guide to Age of Sigmar

Moonclan Grots

So Moonclan Grots will be the next battletome for Warhammer Age of SIgmar.  As with all Games Workshop releases, we can expect to see a number of previews, teasers and articles as the release approaches.  I’ll pull together all the information that we know, as and when we know it, here.   Just what you need to know.

Check out the Gloomspite Gitz page (now we have the battletome name). I’ll shift this information across after Christmas.

Before you get there,  check out Dark Fantastic Mills for great 3D printed terrain perfect for wargaming, including some awesome mushrooms that would be perfect for Moonclan (you can see pictures at the bottom of the page).  The DFM terrain is super versatile and light so worldwide shipping is inexpensive.  Use the “aos shorts” discount code for a further 10% off the already decent prices.

Moonclan Grots New Models

Now, we don’t have any more details to go on at this stage, but the Malign Portents Harbinger and the Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault warband both represent the new design aesthetic for Moonclan.

Fungoid Cave-Shaman Snazzgar Stinkmullett

The mushroom-gobbling grot maniacs known as Cave-Shamans are not right in the head. To these greenskinned nutters, to get lost in a brain-mangling vision is to grow closer to the side of Gorkamorka that epitomises cunning and trickiness over brute strength, which is the side that all grots like the best. Whether these hallucinogenic visions of carnage are gifted by Gorkamorka, or simply the side effects of ingesting deffcap mushrooms, doesn’t matter to his followers – so long as they lead to a good scrap. The Fungoid Cave-Shamans were the first to lead the hordes of Destruction into Shyish, the realm of Death, in search of the Waaagh! to end all Waaaghs!. 

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components to assemble Snazzgar Stinkmullett, a Fungoid Cave-Shaman. He’s an… interesting figure, clearly quite mad, and has enhanced his already pointy features to more closely resemble the Bad Moon with some impressive metal prosthetics attached to his nose and jaw. You may think that he’s wearing a mushroom-shaped hat – the truth is much worse. He’s consumed so much hallucinogenic fungus that spores have burst through his brain, and an enormous fungus is growing from the top of his head. Further spores and mushrooms are dotted about his cloak and staff – which bears a caterpillar familiar – and he carries bags of potions and deffcaps on his belt. He’s armed with a moon-sickle, and on his base you’ll find an accompanying spore squig, which belches clouds of thick spores to hide Snazzgar from the foe. Topping off the whole ensemble is the spine of some unknown creature, which runs down the back of the cloak to trail behind Snazzgar like some dismal trophy.”‘  (GW site)

Zarbag’s Gitz – Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault


The Moonclan Shaman Zarbag and his scuttling band are an infestation spreading through the heart of the Mirrored City. While looting the ruins of Shadespire, Zarbag sniffed out a tantalising aroma indeed – towering clusters of deffcap mushrooms! The Shaman has taken it upon himself to spread this noxious fungus far and wide, drawing more and more of his numberless kin into the Mirrored City.” (GW site).
