GW: Wochenvorschau mit Seraphon Verstärkung
Die Seraphon betreten am kommenden Samstag erneut die Schlachtfelder der Reiche der Sterblichen von Warhammer Age of Sigmar, mit dem Battletome und weiteren Veröffentlichungen.
Sunday Preview – The Seraphon Unveil their Greatest Plan YetThe sky is falling! Ah, no, hang on. That’s just giant chunks of celestial debris being flung by sorcerous frogs. No need to panic. The Slann Starmasters love it when a plan comes together, and they’re moving heaven and earth to reinforce the Seraphon hosts with new miniatures next week.
After an auspicious first outing in the Seraphon Army Set, Battletome: Seraphon is being made available to all. This book contains everything you need to play armies of Coalesced reptiles and celestial Starborne. It contains new and updated rules, warscrolls, and pitched battle profiles for every last Seraphon unit and sub-faction, plus fresh Path to Glory rules.
Prostrate yourself before these scaly sentinels by picking up the limited edition, which features gilt page edges, gold foil blocking, a red ribbon page marker, and a soft-touch cover. It is limited to just 400 numbered copies.
All Seraphon operate under the command of the Slann Starmasters. These ancient amphibian augurs were created by the Old Ones to ensure the cosmic equation known as the Astromatrix is not unbalanced and the Great Plan comes to pass. Their mastery of cosmic energies and spellcasting prowess make them powerful linchpins for any Seraphon host.
The skink priesthood are the devoted attendants of the Slann Starmasters, interpreting their croaked pronouncements into prophecy and plans of action, while making certain the temple-cities continue to operate. Starseers are the most powerful skink wizards, second only to their slann superiors, and they read the heavens during battle to predict the future and bestow blessings upon their allies.
Saurus Scar-Veteran on Aggradon
While mages and sages sling spells from the back lines, the Saurus Scar-Veterans launch themselves headlong into combat on the back of alpha predators – like the supremely savage aggradons. Possessed of a barely-restrained savagery, rider and mount alike surge into enemy lines with a ferocious roar.
Saurus Astrolith Bearer
Saurus marked by destiny will carry astroliths into combat – complex devices covered in astrological symbols, with an orb of purest celestite floating in the middle, they act as conduits for heavenly energies to further empower the Seraphon armies.
Few shock cavalry are as effective at throwing entire battlelines collapse in fear than the mighty Aggradon Lancers. Aggradons are a particularly vicious breed that become frenzied at the first taste of blood, and their saurus riders take advantage of this trait to carve right through their enemy’s vanguard units.
Kroxigor are the most physically imposing of all the Seraphon, dwarfing even the ferocious Saurus. Normally used as labourers in the great temple-cities, they wade into battle alongside their skink cousins swinging huge mauls and hammers. This kit also builds Kroxigor Warspawned – a far more savage variant, blessed with crocodilian features by the god Sotek and armed with massive starfang war-picks.
Aggradons weren’t the only breed of lizard awoken by the feral roar of Ghur. Clutches of inert raptadon eggs also hatched, adding intelligent pack hunters to the Seraphon stock of mounts. They are ridden into battle by skinks, who take advantage of their mount’s natural speed and smarts to befuddle enemies and exploit weaknesses.
This set builds either five javelin-throwing Raptadon Hunters or lance-wielding Raptadon Chargers, two units who have natural synergy on the battlefield.
Saurus Warriors are the mainstay of most Seraphon armies. With vice-like jaws, rending claws, and hardy scales for armour, they are living weapons and defenders of the geomantic nexus. Stick a celestite spear or club in their hands, and these furious beasts become an ordered cohort that can go toe-to-toe with the toughest foes in the Mortal Realms.
Spawn of Chotec
The salamanders herded by Sun Acolytes born under the blessing of Chotec are a unique element among the Seraphon. These creatures are essentially living artillery, belching flaming globs of corrosive saliva across the battlefield to weaken the armour and broil the flesh of their enemies.
