AoS Shorts: Your Essential Guide to Age of Sigmar

Sydney GT 2019

Hey all, the Sydney GT 2019 is coming on 12 and 13 October 2019! One of Sydney’s premier Warhammer Age of Sigmar events. This year, the Sydney GT is offering something different to the usual matched play Age of Sigmar tournament by setting the points level at 2,500 points. With 500 more points to play with, creative players can unlock whole new lists around little-used battalions or get a super-sized monster out onto the board that they would not usually.
