Sigmar be with you! WH_The Empire_1280

It’s the Events Team here bringing you some hot-off-the-press news about our Age of Sigmar Campaign Weekend – The Battle for the Realmgates. Not got your ticket for September 19th & 20th yet? Better get one fast from here.

Today we are talking about the Mortal Realms.

Over the weekend you will playing games on seven out of the eight Mortal Realms. The ones we won’t be playing in are the Celestial Realm as there is currently no fighting going there, and of course the Realm of Chaos is off-limits, as we wouldn’t want any of your models to turn into spawn while you are here.

That’s right – Realm of Fire tables, Realm of Metal and so on. It’s going to be a sight to see.

In order to benefit from the power of the Realm you are fighting in, your Faction needs to control it completely from game to game. So if Order have control of the Realm of Fire, then that benefit is made available to you. You gain control of a Realm if your Faction wins the most games there in the previous round. To begin with, the Realms are divided up evenly.

To whet your appetite, here are some of the Realms and their effects on your troops should your Faction win enough games there:

In all the battles, in all the infinite Realms, one thing is always true – life will find a way.

Once per turn you may restore a lost wound to a model if it has the colour green somewhere on it.

The power of Nagash imbues every relic of death in this realm, driving them forward with relentless energy.

Every model in your army with a skull or dead body on it may charge an extra 1”.

Primal fury courses through those who can tap into the merciless energy of the magic of Beasts.

If you own a pet and have a photograph of it (or any animal), once per game choose one unit; it may add +1 to it’s to Wound rolls this turn as they are overcome with feral anger.

That’s all for now but keep your eye out, as on Wednesday we reveal the remaining Mortal Realms and their powerful effects! If all these extra details are getting you excited, then you can get your ticket for this great weekend here.

See you soon,
