Rejoice ye Warhammer Age of Sigmar players, later this week Games Workshop is opening pre-orders for a new Age of Sigmar set and it’s no slacker. The new set is called Blightwar and it focuses around the war between Nurgle and the Stormcast Eternals. This isn’t just a fancy start collecting box either. It has some great stuff inside.
Blightwar Inside the Box
Inside each copy of Blightwar, you will get 2 armies (Stormcast Eternals and Daemons of Nurgle), new battleplans, fluff progressing the Age of Sigmar story, brand new rules, and 2 exclusive figures.
The new figures included in the Blightwar set are Neave Blacktalon and Horticulous Slimux. From the official Warhammer Community post:
Neave Blacktalon is a new kind of Stormcast Eternal, of the Knights-Zephyros. Armed with Whirlwind Axes, Neave can cut down characters in a flurry of blows, or she can weaken them at range with her Boltstorm Pistol – she’s a powerful new option for any Stormcast Eternals army.
On the other side, Horticulous Slimux commands the forces of Nurgle. Slimux is Nurgle’s Grand Cultivator, helping to seed and maintain the plagued gardens of his realm and beyond. On the tabletop, Horticulous has several powerful benefits that improve your Nurgle units, and he’s more than capable of holding his own in close combat.
The full box should cost $160.
The complete box content includes:
- 40 pages of rules including Warscrolls and Battleplans
- 32 Miniatures
10 Plaguebearers, 3 Nurglings, 3 Plague Drones and an exclusive Horticulous Slimux riding his mount Mulch
- Stormcast Eternals
3 Vanguard Raptors, 3 Vanguard Palladors, 5 Vanguard Hunters and an exclusive Neave Blacktol, a Stormcast Eternal Knight Zephyros
