With the new version of Age of $igmar upon us, Soul Wars is where it all begins. Soul War is meant to point to the Forces of Nagash and their spectral forms, but personally we are hoping it points to the Slaanesh - Devourer of Souls! That being said, there isn't a spikey breastplate in sight yet, so the new Soul Wars boxed set will have to do. Packed with all brand new snap-fit miniatures, this puts a new spin on the look of the Stormcast Eternals and introduces some ghostly forces for Nagash. To supplement the boxed set there are also four additional Easy To Build kits; Castigators with Gryph-hound, Sequitors, Myrmourn Banshees and the Glaivewraith Stalkers - all dynamically posed with scenic bases. Soul Wars also sees the magic ability taken from your imagination and writ large on the battlefield with the Malign Sorcery miniature set. I saw this today and the pieces are huge! Games Workshop have been doing a lot with scenic bases, terrain and the like for a while now and this new edition of Age of $igmar is no exception with the Shattered Dominion Objectives set. Having a look at the sprue pictures, these certainly seem like a step up from the first sets for Age of $igmar.
Soul Wars also sees a slew of books - the new Age of $igmar Core Book (which is a nicely produced hefty tome), the Generals Handbook 2018, plus the Soul Wars novel which comes in standard and also a super deluxe version that I could be highly tempted to buy! "But where are the accessories?" I hear you cry...
There is a new Combat Gauge, Scenery Effects Dice, Command & Status Dice and Wound Counter Dice just to make life complicated. Speaking of which, something to make your life less complicated when painting your ghostly hordes are two new technical paints - Nighthaunt Gloom and Hexwraith Flame - both formulated to just wash over your primer or white base coat. There's also some paint sets - one for Nighthaunt and one for the new Stormcast Chamber, the Sacrosanct. Incidentally, if you do order the Soul Wars boxed set online, you will receive a set of Soul Wars - Warscroll Cards.
Not into Age of $igmar? Well... there are some books to tide you over - Horus Heresy - Master of Mankind is out in paperback, the Yarrick Omnibus, War of Secrets - a Tau vs Primaris Marines story, plus Matyrs of Elysia a new audio drama that chronicles the fateful destruction of the Elysians by the evil forces of Forge World!
