About this deal

Having larger units is reinforced via two key rules that all Skaven can benefit from. Overwhelming Mass sees Skaven units get +1 to melee hit rolls when they have 20 models in a unit, and gain +1 to wound rolls when they have 30 models in a unit. This turns any middling Skaven unit into an absolute beast in combat, and means your opponent will have to whittle your units down if they want to stand any chance at surviving the onslaught. There’s a bit of a mix in here, whilst you get some great units like the Screaming Bell and Stormfiends. The Clanrats and Plague Monks are multitudinous, but they are also ancient kits! The sprues don’t even have part-number on. that’s how old they are. The new plastic Curseling was originally available in the Arcane Cataclysm boxed set, facing down the learned Lumineth. They arrive solo next week – or at least as solo as this mighty warrior-wizard can be, given the spell-slinging Tretchlet that sprouts from their side. Scinari Enlightener

For Skryre Science Wizards, their best spell is undoubtedly More-more-more Warp Power!. This spell lets a Clan Skryre unit within 12” re-roll hit and wound rolls until the next hero phase. If you’re wanting to do one big turn of devastating damage, either ranged or in melee – or both! – then this is the big hitter you’re looking for. The only downside is that, after it’s all done and dusted, the target unit will suffer D3 mortal wounds – but who cares, if the damage is already done? Another year another set of battle boxes. this time with more boxes available than we’ve seen before. last year we had 4 and this time we have 7. Worth noting for fantasy fans: GW also announced a range of eight Warhammer Age of Sigmar Battleforces for 2022. Kavzar was a rare thing in the world of Warhammer: it was a near-utopia. Man and dwarf lived in harmony for many years until they decided to raise a colossal temple of thanks to their gods. Unfortunately, their ambition outstripped their abilities, leaving the structure’s giant spire unfinished. One day, a stranger appeared and promised to finish the temple in a single night – with one condition: that he be allowed to hang a horned bell from the top. The citizens of Kavzar agreed and went to sleep for the night. The next day, to their amazement, the temple was complete. The stranger, however, was nowhere to be seen.


The Clawmaster of Clan Verminus can take the Shield of Distraction, making them only targettable by one enemy unit in combat per turn. Stage dive into a castle and fight with near impunity. This Daughters of Khaine battleforce is literally a bit of a mixed bag. There’s a bit of everything going on, which is either a good think of bad thing depending on what you’re looking for. The value of this one is going to be in the eye of the beholder. Planning a DoK specialist army? probably not for you. Prefer a generalist force? This could well be the foundation you’re after. Skaven in Warhammer Age of Sigmar, like many other Games Workshop armies, play in a way that reinforces their fiction, with many aspects that define their particular role on the battlefield. The first of these is that, as a Skaven army, you’ll want a lot of bodies to throw at the enemy. Skaven are most often seen as a ‘horde’ army; compared to many other factions, you’ll be able to cover the board with bodies for comparatively few points. Here are the named Skaven characters with models you can get your hands on when building your own fledgling ratling empire:

To his dismay, Thanquol has found that he’s not the only survivor from the World-That-Was. His arch nemesis, Gotrek Gurnisson, has also survived, and is set to foil Thanquol’s plans all over again as part of their never-ending vendetta.

Endless Spells

Like the command traits, there are 3 artefacts for each clan, which is a lot so let’s just go through the hits. First, Masterclan with their Gnawshard can stab an enemy unit and deal 1 mortal at the end of every turn for the rest of the game. Get in a stab early and do incremental damage over time after running away. Firstly, you’ve got Overwhelming Mass and Strength in Numbers, which can transform even a humble unit of Clanrats into a fairly terrifying fighting force. function rScreenWidth(){var e=0;return self.innerHeight?e=self.innerWidth:document.documentElement&&document.documentElement.clientHeight?e=document.documentElement.clientWidth:document.body&&(e=document.body.clientWidth),parseInt(e)}
