Not to be out done, Age of Sigmar is getting a new starter box on 24 June called “Thunder and Blood” shortly after the massive launch of Warhammer 40K 8th Edition with the goal of making it a breeze to get into Warhammer Fantasy.
According to the posts and mailer that Games Workshop has been sending out, the kit features:
– 44 stunning citadel miniatures cast in coloured plastic and easy-to-build
– 96 pages of rules, background and painting – get involved in the Mortal Realms right away
– Play right out of the box with scenery, a playmat and dice.
– Amazing value of two full armies for the price of a Start Collecting! box
Not only do you get a ton more models for the price of two Start Collecting boxes, but you also get a playmat, some dice and a sweet book that doesn’t just cover rules; it will also get you started on painting and includes plenty of lore driven goodness for those of us who love the fluff that comes with the Warhammer universe.
On top of the starter box, there are also two new sets of miniatures sold separately that are being released to coincide with Thunder and Blood include:
