Sunday Preview – The Cities of Sigmar Muster
There’s a lot to get on with this week, so grab your Coin Malleus and check out everything you can pre-order next week.
Battletome: Cities of Sigmar
The question of how the regular people of the Mortal Realms live and wage war is answered with Battletome: Cities of Sigmar. This comprehensive battletome covers the history and background of the Cities of Sigmar, a detailed painting guide, a gallery of gorgeous miniatures, and all the rules you need to play them, including 50 warscrolls and Pitched Battle Profiles. Also included is a token board containing nine Order Rules Tokens and 32 Order Tokens.
Ardent supporters of the Cities of Sigmar can purchase this battletome in a numbered limited edition version, which features a red ribbon marker, gold gilt page edges, and gold foil text.
Tahlia Vedra, Lioness of The Parch
A skilled mercenary whose keen strategic mind has seen her rise through the ranks of the Freeguilds – and revolutionise them in the process – Tahlia Vedra remains first and foremost a warrior of the people. Leading from the front lines, she rides her manticore Infernadine and inspires her fellow soldiers to fight with Aqshian ardour.
Pontifex Zenestra, Matriarch of The Great Wheel
While Tahlia encourages the troops through inspiration, Zenestra appeals to their faith in the God-King Sigmar. Uncompromising and unknowable, Zenestra is carried into battle on the back of a sacred palanquin, a curious skeletal double in tow, as her battlefield sermons whip allies into a frenzy.
The Freeguild Cavalier-Marshal is a general who can galvanise even the most beleaguered soldier into action. Though they often accompany Freeguild Cavaliers on line-breaking charges, these Marshals carry the weight of the logistics of the Dawnbringer Crusades, hence all the gear.
Freeguild Marshal & Relic Envoy
Freeguild Marshals are not just master strategists, they’re also more than handy in a fight. These veterans prefer a ground-level view of combat, sending orders down the line of battle via their Relic Envoys. The Marshal themselves has a wide array of build options, including three different heads, options for a shield in either hand and a choice of weapons.
Freeguild Command Corps
Freeguild Marshals know how to delegate, and so call on their Command Corps, an eclectic bunch of characters each with their own specialisation. The group consists of a powerful Arch-Knight, a flag-waving Great Herald, an ever-watchful Whisperblade, a grim War Surgeon, a morbid Soul Shepherd, and their loyal Mascot Gargoylian, with a bevy of cosmetic customisation options.
The Cities of Sigmar aren’t equipped with soul-stealing scythes or armour that thrums with magical lightning – instead, they make do with humble gear forged in city smithies. However, the Alchemite Warforgers can imbue base metals with powerful Chamonic energy, turning regular swords and axes into blazing weapons, and magically reinforcing shields and breastplates.
Fusil-Major on Ogor Warhulk
The Cities of Sigmar make great use of the Castelite formation in battlem, and the mobile watchtowers of this living fortification are Fusil-Majors riding atop Ogor Warhulks. The Fusil-major snipes enemy targets and relays their manoeuvres, while the Ogor Warhulk hefts a towering shield and hefty club to defend their allies.
The Freeguild Cavaliers are not born to their station – they prove their worth as veterans of many battles. These mounted fighters carry fine gear that they have either earned through lengthy service, or carried from their ransacked ancestral homes. This kit features a myriad of options for you to create units of uniquely majestic knights.
Although the Mortal Realms are packed with horrors beyond imagination, there is little that cannot be felled by a concentrated volley of fire from the Freeguild Fusiliers. Should a target somehow survive to attempt a retaliatory charge, this defensive line will form up behind their heavy pavises, reload, and unleash hell once more.
Along with the Freeguild Fusiliers, the Freeguild Steelhelms make up the defensive walls of the Castelite formation. With discipline, determination, and unwavering faith in Sigmar, these humble men and women go toe to toe with hulking orruks, gibbering daemons, and undead fiends to secure their place in the Realms.
Ironweld Great Cannon
The gate of the Castelite formation is the Ironweld Great Cannon. Protected by a thick shield, this mighty artillery piece is manned by an expert crew who ensure it fires a constant barrage of cannonballs, shells, and grapeshot. Firing only ceases when the cannon wheels forward to allow Freeguild Steelhelms and Cavaliers to sally forth from within their living fortification.
Dawnbringers: Book III – The Long Hunt
The current major focus in Warhammer Age of Sigmar is the Twin-Tailed Crusade now marching across Aqshy and Ghyran. After a disastrous clash with grots, troggoths, and the Sons of Behemat, both prongs of the Crusade trudge on, bowed but not broken, in Dawnbringers: Book III – The Long Hunt.
Now powerful new allies join the Dawnbringers, as the Aqshian tail meets the Goretide, and the Ghyranite tail battles starving Ogor Gorgers. This supplement continues the epic narrative and includes rules for four new Armies of Renown and the second part of the Cities of Sigmar Path to Glory campaign with branching paths, boons, and setbacks.
Celebrate the next leg of your glorious campaign with the limited edition of The Long Hunt, which features soft-fouch full cover art with gold foil lettering, a blue ribbon marker, and gilt page edges. This edition, displaying Ionus Cryptborn and his regal steed Cthorak in all their glory, is limited to just 300 individually numbered copies.
Neave Blacktalon is Sigmar’s foremost assassin, head of a specialist group of elite warriors. Neave, Hendrick the Silver Wolf, Rostus Oxenhammer, Shekinah Goldenblade, and the mysterious Idoneth Soulscryer Lorai, Child of the Abyss, are heroes who starred in the Warhammer TV show Blacktalon, now immortalised as five characterful miniatures.
Rules for using these Stormcast special operatives as a Regiment of Renown are featured in Dawnbringers: Book III – The Long Hunt, just in time for Neave’s full-length Black Library novel.
Ionus Cryptborn has returned in a menacing new form as the Warden of Lost Souls. Mounted atop the mighty draconith Cthorak, this living legend soars through the skies, calling down scouring maelstroms with prayers to Sigmar. This box pairs Ionus with two Stormdrake Guards – one of which can be built as a Knight-Draconis – making it the perfect start to a Draconith Skywing, a new Stormcast Eternals Army of Renown which can be found in The Long Hunt.
The Blades of Belthanos
Perched atop his Carnelian Greatspite, Belthanos is a herald of the dormant Sylvaneth God of the Hunt. The First Thorn of Kurnoth strikes from the trees, and rides out in this boxed set containing Belthanos himself, alongside three Kurnoth Hunters with a variety of weapons, and three Revenant Seekers, which can also be built as Spiterider Lancers. They make a perfect core for the new Sylvaneth Army of Renown in The Long Hunt, the Evergreen Hunt.
When magmaholds fall, lone survivors known as Grimhold Exiles carry on their legacy. Wielding weapons imbued with the embers of their magmahold’s sacred flame, they battle on as bloody-minded agents of retribution. Some hope to found new holds, while others simply pit themselves against the toughest foes they can find.
Harbinger of Decay
Riding withered steeds, Harbingers of Decay are morbid soothsayers who herald the arrival of Nurgle’s decaying legions. Dour and humourless, they directly invoke Grandfather’s pestilent power, saturating battlefields with rot and disease. The worst of these maladies is the Shudderblight, which causes the doubts and insecurities of its victims to manifest as weeping black boils.
