Games Workshop has kept the releases coming fast and furious for the past year. Not just for Age of Sigmar, but Warhammer 40,000 and all their other games like Blood Bowl, Kill Team and now Warcry. As I am a fantasy and steampunk guy at heart, the releases that interest me are the ones of Age of Sigmar and Warcry; although I am really trying to resist Warcry, which is hard as I really like skirmish games.
Anyways, this week Games Workshop gave a preview of the next three releases for Age of Sigmar and two of them are interesting to me; but one is the army I really liked in Fantasy and one that is making it hard for me to focus on my Sylvaneth. Okay, without further ado, lets look at the least interesting release to me.
While I like Destruction armies, I have never been an Ork or Orruk player. I like the army, but it is never one that piqued my interest. However, the fact that you can play Ironjawz, Bonesplitterz, or a mix as Grand Waaagh! makes this a very interesting book. I am really glad that Games Workshop has combined thematic armies back together. I really like the Gloomspite Gitz book and this one looks to be very similar in style, repairing to thematic armies together.
The other release is a bit more interesting to me as it shows the everyday cities in the Age of Sigmar and what they have to do to protect themselves from the Ravaging Hordes of monsters they must face. The fact that it combines the Humans, Aelves, and Duardin into one army makes it a very attractive AoS force to me. If it wasn’t for the fact that I was already painting Sylvaneth and Games Workshop hadn’t released the next preview, I would be even more excited. But it is the next preview that got me excited and makes me hope I have a few months before it is released.
Ogors! I love Ogors! I like the Beastclaw Raiders and I like the original bellowing Ogors with their cannon sized guns and halberd sized hand axes. I am really hoping that this book lets you play the full Ogor range as a united force as I thing that would be an awesome army to paint up and base.
Well, I have done the fanboy for long enough, back to painting for me. See you next post.
