GW: Wochenvorschau mit Kragnos
Am kommenden Samstag werden die Reiche der Sterblichen erzittern, wenn sich Kragnos, The End of Empires erhebt um Zerstörung zu bringen, gemeinsam mit weiteren alten und neuen Helden und neuen Büchern.
Sunday Preview – The Mortal Realms Quake Beneath the Tread of Kragnos
Brace yourselves – the big guy’s a-comin’. He’s been imprisoned since before Sigmar took up the mantle of God-King, and the Mortal Realms will soon feel his full fury.
Broken Realms: Kragnos
If you joined us for Day 1 of Warhammer Fest Online, you’ll no doubt have been looking forward to book 4 of the Broken Realms saga ever since. This chapter takes the action to Ghur, the Realm of Beasts, where the indomitable Sigmarite city of Excelsis lies.
Having been inadvertently freed from imprisonment, Kragnos, a primordial beast of terrible power, unleashes his wrath upon the city in a seismic battle, with the forces of Destruction following in his wake.
The stage is certainly set for an epic encounter, but the thrilling narrative has more far-reaching implications for the future of the Mortal realms than a mere siege could possibly determine. This is must-read lore for any fan of Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
What’s more, there are loads of new rules in the book, from warscrolls for the miniatures introduced below, to warscroll battalions and other updates for existing battletomes. You can also find six battleplans that let you refight the epic clashes described in the narrative.
Kragnos, The End of Empires
He’s huge, he’s mean, and the thunder of his mighty hooves can cause earthquakes. The thing is, he’s not entirely happy about having been confined for such a long time, so he’s looking to vent some serious anger. Worse still, anyone who gets in the way of this rampaging behemoth faces a potential 36 mortal wounds on the charge, even before he swings his Dread Mace! Yes, really.
Whether you’re a fan of greenskins, ogors, or gargants, you’re going to want to get your hands on Kragnos, as he can join any Destruction army, regardless of the faction. After all, as a literal god of earthquakes, nothing symbolises a living avatar of destruction quite like this fella.
Despite no longer being alive in the conventional sense – in fact, he was long dead even before the razing of the World-that-Was – Lord Kroak’s indomitable spirit remains bound to his mortal coil. The venerable slann is the oldest and most powerful of his kind, and his unbidden arrival and mastery of the highest form of magic have saved the forces of Order more times than even the gods can remember.
Lord Kroak’s stunning new model is as much a feat of structural engineering as it is miniatures design. Whether you’re looking for Kroak’s peerless sorcery to ensure your Seraphon never let the Great Plan go awry, or you’re simply after an incredible miniature to paint, you can pre-order this kit from next weekend.
Dexcessa and Synessa, the Talon and the Voice of Slaanesh
Birthed in the wake of Morathi’s ascension to godhood, Dexcessa and Synessa are among the most powerful of Slaanesh’s daemonic servants, each gifted with a portion of the God of Excess’ unnatural allure. Dexcessa uses the hypnotic effect of their multifaceted wings to confound and distract while they dance and cavort a slaughterous path through their enemies. Meanwhile, Synessa’s manipulative whispers reach the ears of even the farthest quarry to bring their darkest fears and desires to light.
This kit builds either Dexcessa, the Talon of Slaanesh, or Synessa, the Voice of Slaanesh, so if you want to swell the ranks of your hedonite host with both of these formidable daemons, make sure you pre-order two sets next weekend.
The enchanting pipe music played by Warsong Revenants is a balm to the Sylvaneth, but a harrowing mental onslaught to their enemies. These lithe forest sprites drift alongside their kin, bringing the land itself to life about them with Alarielle’s song.
Warsong Revenants are consummate all-rounders who make fantastic additions to all Sylvaneth armies. As well as possessing the ability to enhance the Bravery of friendly units while reducing that of your enemies, they’re no slouches in combat. The fact that they’re Wizards is an extra bonus too. Add their song to your wargrove by pre-ordering these pipers of Alarielle from next weekend.
Galen and Doralia ven Denst
We introduced this dad and daughter duo of Azyrite witch hunters back in March, and you can employ their magic-busting skills in your Cities of Sigmar armies soon. The ven Densts play a key role in the events of Broken Realms: Kragnos, so you’ll definitely want to get this pair if you’re looking to recreate the epic battles that take place in the narrative.
Warhammer 40,000 may only have one new item up for pre-order next weekend, but it’s a real game-changer.
