Next week we’ve got a big AoS release with a new boxed set and two new Battletomes: the Ogor Maw Tribes and the hotly anticipated Ossiarch Bonereapers! You can pre-order these form Frontline Gaming this weekend through our web-cart.
This article was originally published on the Warhammer-community page.
A new faction is on the march! This weekend, you’ll be able to secure yourself the first of the terrifying Ossiarch Bonereapers by pre-ordering Feast of Bones. These models aren’t mono-pose, but full, multipart kits with options, customisation choices and plenty of bitz besides, lovingly designed to be a pleasure to assemble, paint and crush all who oppose you. Today, we’re taking a closer look at the kits with the sprues, tips and an interview with the team behind these magnificent models. Speaking of which…
Thanks, folks! Let’s take a closer look at those sprues…
Mortek Guard is a cracking kit designed to let you build truly massive legions of these relentless warriors in no time at all. The main part of their bodies is cast in a single piece, with full interchangeability for weapon arms, heads and shield. This perfect balance of ease of assembly and customisability means that you could build hundreds of them and never repeat a pose!
The kit comes with two main weapon options. If you’re fielding huge regiments, you’ll want to grab nadirite spears, while nadirite blades are the go-to choice for smaller units.
Distinctive, eye-catching and simple-to-build – we can’t think of a better unit to form a nigh-impenetrable battleline!
The next Ossiarch Bonereapers kit in Feast of Bones is the Necropolis Stalkers! These elite warriors are the army’s trouble-shooters, problem deleters and all-round menaces, dealing damage while your Mortek Guard hold the line. Their kit is rewarding and intricate, featuring a number of customisation options that allow you to personalise each to an impressive degree. Take their four-sided faces – you’ll get to mix-and-match these from a varied set of options, representing the distinct mixes of personalities and souls that go into making these elite hunters.
With blades, armour plating and more, you’ll be able to field sizeable units of these warriors while giving each their own style. Does it get any better? Yes, yes it does! The kit also builds another unit for your army – the elite Immortis Guard.
Like their kit-siblings, these indomitable destroyers are pretty easy to customise. What’s more, if you build one unit, the spares you’ll have leftover from the others are brilliant for your conversions on other models – or for grisly war trophies to give to your friends.
Vokmortian, Master of the Bone-tithe
Vokmortian, Master of the Bone-tithe is an eye-catching character, morbid and sinister even by the standards of the Ossiarch Bonereapers. Bedecked with ghastly detail – including the heads of those who previously refused to pay the tithe – he’s a great painting project, too.
While the Mortek Guard and Necropolis Stalkers will be available separately the week after the release of Feast of Bones, Vokmortian will initially only be available in this set. If you want to add him to your collection, make sure to pre-order yours this weekend!
You’ve seen the models – check back later this week for a look at the rules! Meanwhile, if you’re looking to bolster your forces from Feast of Bones before you’ve got your set, you can grab yourself Nagash, Arkhan and some Morghasts today, which are all usable in the army.
Next week’s pre-orders are a veritable buffet of new models, rules and more! Let’s take a look at the menu…
Feast of Bones
Whether you’re looking to start an army of Ossiarch Bonereapers, Ogor Mawtribes, or both, you’ll want to get yourself Feast of Bones! Don’t take our word for it – here are Peachy and Nick with an unboxing video…
Feast of Bones is a truly epic boxed set, packed with miniatures that let you fight fierce battles between the Ogor Mawtribes and Ossiarch Bonereapers. On the ogors’ side, you’ll find six Ogor Gluttons, two Leadbelchers, an Ironblaster, and a brand new Tyrant, while the Ossiarchs march to war with ten Mortek Guard, three Necropolis Stalkers, two Morghast Archai and Vokmortian, Master of the Bone-tithe.
This set is your first chance to get your hands on the Ossiarch Bonereapers with Vokmortian currently only available in this set and the Necropolis Stalkers and Mortek Guard being released shortly after. It’s also your first opportunity to grab the Ogor Mawtribes Tyrant!
Feast of Bones is your first step into the necropolis, but for any aspiring Liege-Kavalos looking to conquer the Mortal Realms, Battletome: Ossiarch Bonereapers is a must-have. This tome of dark and forbidden lore is your guide to the Mortal Realms’ newest army – an unstoppable legion of warrior-constructs forged from bone to subjugate all reality!
Inside, you’ll find the background and sumptuous art that bring their dark world to life, along with top painting tips and a new set of rules with which to unleash the Ossiarch Bonereapers on the tabletop. This is a force unlike any other in Warhammer Age of Sigmar, featuring new game mechanics that reward you for grand strategic thinking and clever positioning – we’ll be reviewing it in more detail next week.
No Ossiarch Bonereapers force will be complete without the Bone-tithe Nexus. This terrifying monolith doesn’t just make any tabletop it stands upon 120% more awesome – it also has some cracking rules. With one of these on your side, you’ll be able to smite enemies, punish Wizards, weaken key monsters and more – and it doesn’t even cost any matched play points.
For those of you who’ve already fallen for the Ossiarch Bonereapers, don’t miss out on their special dice set or the nifty quick-reference warscroll cards.
You’ll also be able to harness the malevolent magics of the Ossiarch Bonereapers with a new set of endless spells. These sinister sorceries can be cast by any Ossiarch Bonereapers Wizard as well as Nagash and Arkhan, and add new tactical options to your army. We’ll have more on how they work soon, so keep an eye out.
The servants of Death aren’t getting things all their own way, though. It’s been a cracking year for Destruction fans so far, with Gloomspite Gitz, Orruk Warclans, and now, Battletome: Ogor Mawtribes – a new army book that forges the Gutbusters and Beastclaw raiders into one glorious (and gluttonous!) army.
Available in standard, Limited and eBook editions, Battletome: Ogor Mawtribes transforms the ogors into a deadly fighting force, with updated allegiance abilities, spell lores, sub-faction rules and much more besides. New lore, meanwhile, explores the distinct culture of the ogors, from explaining just what happened to the Everwinter to why they tolerate Gnoblars in their presence. We’ll be getting our teeth into the new book with some tantalising tasters next week, so stay tuned.
Don’t forget the accessories! Aspiring Tyrants of the Mawtribes will be able to grab some (extra large!) custom dice as well as lay their hands on some invaluable quick-reference warscroll cards.
For Middle-earth fans, we’ve got another useful set of profile cards to round out your collection. The Isengard and Moria Profile Card Pack is an essential resource for any Evil general, giving you rules for the denizens of these dreaded factions. For Good players, the Free Peoples Profile Card Pack covers a vast range of factions – The Fellowship, The Shire, The Rangers, Numenor, Arnor, Wildmen of Druadan, Fangorn, and The Misty Mountains, while the Elves and Dwarves cards give you everything you need to know about (you guessed it, Elves and Dwarves.
A set of Middle-earth card sleeves are ideal for keeping your profile cards safe, and when combined with a dry-erase marker, they are perfect for tracking Might, Will and Fate.
You’ll be able to pre-order everything above on the 26th of October – in the meantime, keep checking back here and subscribe to our newsletter for the latest previews and updates.
