Age Of Sigmar Campaign Weekend: Descent of the Overlords

Descent Of The Overlords is a Warhammer Age Of Sigmar Campaign Weekend. Players will be able to immerse themselves in the narrative of the Mortal Realms, and this time the spotlight will fall on the Kharadron Overlords, a brand new faction to the Age Of Sigmar! Each mission you play will be narrative driven and will tell the story of this campaign. You won’t be fighting for a faction this time, but instead you are your own warlord with your own goals, battling in a thematic setting. There will be plenty of twists and turns along the way, decisions for you to make, and some surprises thrown in there for good measure. It’s also a great chance for your existing armies to get involved with the current Age Of Sigmar setting and be part of the exciting Kharadron Overlord arrival.

An exciting part of this event is a trade mechanic we will be using. Each player will be given a bag of coins upon arrival. You can then use these coins to ‘trade’ with the Overlords and purchase assistance to use in your games. This might be a bombing run from an Arkanaut Frigate, re-deployment aboard an Ironclad, or upgraded weapons and armour courtesy of Kharadron Aether-Khemists and Endrineers! Just remember that the Overlords will help you, but it will cost you, as they will want something in return!

Each player will get a chance to meet with Guild emissaries (also known as our event staff) to spend their coins. This will be via formal trade meeting before each game, but equally our Guild agents will be open for negotiation throughout the weekend. You don’t have to wait for a formal trade meeting to strike a lucrative deal! That means you can approach our Guild emissaries at any point during the event, and indeed they might approach you with tempting offers!
