Christmas may be over – but a new Warhammer year is just about to begin. Next week, 2020 will kick off in style with not one, but two armies getting a revamp and a new battlebox…

Aether War brings you to the heart of the Spiral Crux in a battle for profit, plunder and arcane secrets. Like other battleboxes, this jam-packed set contains two armies, brand-new Heroes and lore, alongside rules for gaming with it all. But unlike other battleboxes, Aether War has a twist – everything in the box can fly, and all the games you play use the updated airborne battles system found in the box.
This set contains a vast array of Kharadron Overlords and Disciples of Tzeentch models, including two new champions available for the first time in this set! The Endrinmaster with Dirigible Suit is ideal for accompanying your Endrinriggers into battle and keeping pace with the ships he’s assigned to repair, while the Magister on Disc of Tzeentch allows you to flit around the battlefield zapping enemies into Chaos Spawn. Aether War is brilliant for starting or expanding a Tzeentch or Kharadron Overlords army – just in time for…
Tzeentch and Kharadron Overlords have long been some of Warhammer Age of Sigmar’s most popular armies. With ambitious battletomes from the first edition of the game they helped lay the groundwork for mechanics now available to every army, like sub-factions, customisable allegiance abilities, as well as innovative and thematic army-wide mechanics.
Now, both factions have seen a significant update, bringing them in line with the latest edition of the game and making them more rewarding, thematic and fun to play than ever before.
We’ll be previewing both of these in depth next week, so stay tuned! Each battletome will be available in standard, eBook and limited edition versions. The latter feature soft-touch covers, gilt-edged pages and ribbon markers. They’re limited to 600 numbered copies each, making them wonderful collector’s pieces and a great way to show your devotion to your favourite faction.
And don’t forget the warscroll cards! These invaluable quick-reference cards make checking your rules mid battle simple – just grab the ones for the warscrolls you’re using, and you’ll have a super-simple way to keep on top of your skyvessels, Magisters and what-have-yous.
For Tzeentch fans, there are even more goodies on the way for your army. The Endless Spells: Disciples of Tzeentch set allows you to use the God of Magic’s most powerful summoned sorceries, containing the sinister Tome of Eyes, the fire-spewing Daemonic Simulacrum and the flesh-twisting Burning Sigil of Tzeentch. We’ll be looking into just how these work with your army later in the week.
And, last but not least, we have dice – the perfect way to show your devotion to the god of fate himself! This pack of Tzeentch-themed dice comes in three colours, representing the three types of Horror – Pink, Blue and yellow for Brimstone Horrors. Use them for key rolls, track your Destiny Dice, yell at them when they roll 1s – it’s up to you!
We’ll be previewing the armies of Tzeentch and the Kharadron Overlords, so check back here soon! In the meantime, if you can’t wait to pre-order the latest goodies on Saturday, you can start your Tzeentch or Kharadron Overlords army today.
Just a note for all you users of the fantastic and free Warhammer Age of Sigmar app – all the warscrolls for these new releases will be coming to the app in an update on Saturday the 11th of January.
