Today I wanted to take a quick look at the new book from Games Workshop - Age of Sigmar: Skirmish! We were lucky enough to have been sent a copy, which I received a couple of days ago, and we have been hammer and tongs trying to get a nice board together so that we can show a couple of games over the next week.
First of all, let's take a look at what has been released:
This is a cool piece of kit, made up of 2 Garden of Morr sets which retail at £30 each so immediately you are making a saving. The kit is quite flexible and can be used in a large number of ways. One of our authors has 3 of these which you will hopefully see really soon on top of this...
Necropolis Battle Mat:
Again, this is a lovely product with some nice detail without going too over the top. Personnally mats are usually quite hit or miss (not a big fan of the other mats GW has created as there is too much going on) but this one is a big hit for me at a nice price of £50. Looking forward to getting one for the blog!
Let's take a look at the gang sets that have been released:
All of these are great value at £40 and are a great way to start getting into the AoS system without a large outlay for a force. Very cool!
Lastly is the book itself.
Age of Sigmar: Skirmish:
At 41 pages the book is great value for £6, introducing readers to a whole new way to play, campaign system, command abilities, artifacts and spells specific to this style of game as well as 6 battleplans to play over (although it states you can actually modify any AoS battleplans to work too). I will be going into more detail over the next week, including a look at a couple of the scenarios we have played.
Stay tuned and stay fluffy!
