No one could say that Warhammer's transition into Age of $igmar was an easy one.
The feeling of many of the more vocal members of forums and blogs was not a positive one!.
That being said, there were also those of use who saw it as an exciting time of new beginnings.
New beginnings also seemed to be a by-word for massive prices mind you, thus the moniker on this site, Age of $igmar.
In more recent times though, Age of $igmar has started to gain ground. Games Workshop stores are reporting a rise in sales and many of those first skeptical are now wanting to get in on the action.
This provides a bit of a conundrum for Games Workshop - how do you get all these players back on board without stopping and starting again.
By the looks of things, they are going about this in a few interesting ways and this week's White Dwarf gives us a glimpse at that.

As you know, Seasons of War is starting this weekend and sees a massive worldwide campaign begin - this is what people want to get on board! Games Workshop have done a great job of selling it and now they just need to get people ready to go, especially those who may have left..
Storm of Sigmar is a small starter set with some of the miniatures from the Age of $igmar starter set. At 1/4 the price of the full set, this is a pretty good way to get in, or maybe even get a few more minis!
This is the perfect primer if you just want to catch up, take part and then continue to follow the story.
Of course if you have the cash, then the original boxed set is definitely the way to go... and also conveniently pictured just to the right!
There is no content apart from sales pitch! No Paint Splatter, nothing of real substance.
Frankly it's a catalogue and a boring one at that!
The worst issue for a long time!
