GW has revealed quite a bit more information about the Malign Portents for Age of Sigmar, and what it actually is. Read on to find out!
So as you can see in the above video, the Malign Portents is a new story arc for Age of Sigmar that will seem to aim to flesh out the realms a bit to give us some hard info on what they’re really like. The focus is on Death at first as Nagash has been plotting and scheming while the forces of Order have been battling with Chaos.
There are going to be some stories to create the feel of the realms, some new rules and characters for actual game play and of course, new models, too. It looks pretty cool as the story of Age of Sigmar has been pretty much all at 30,000 feet above the realms, dealing with big picture stuff. I am looking forward to learning more about what’s actually going on in the realms and what they are, etc. Watch the video below featuring Phil Kelly (aka: Street Fighter II hustler!) and it gives you a pretty clear idea of what’s going on.
To that end, they define some of the realms as nearly enormous, mystical places with more order in parts and more raw magic in others. Each of the realms has a theme of sorts which defines what it is like. They also give a history of the Age of Sigmar universe, from the Age of Myth through the Age of Chaos to where we are now: the Age of Sigmar.
We also get a little bio on the 4 characters in this story arc:
