New Age of Sigmar boxed set revealed

This isn’t just a new boxed set; it’s also a new edition of the game. The first edition featured Order versus Chaos, the second featured Order versus Death. So it’s not surprising to see the third edition box feature Order versus Destruction.

For those unfamiliar with Age of Sigmar terminology, destruction is the group name for armies of orcs, goblins, and ogres. And giants.

Here are the new box contents:

Some of the models in the box have already been previewed, but I do like the new orc warlord:

There’s plenty of other hero models in the box for both sides. The article also previewed some models which will come out following this new edition release, including this one:

    The Stormcasts look pretty decent, but they’re not really my thing and I don’t think I’ll be giving myself a stomach ulcer trying to snag a copy of the box in the 12 seconds it’s available when I can wait and get the orcs later. Those orcs though – god damn, I love every one of them! Add that to all the new 40k orks that are on their way as well and I am a very happy Warboss right now. If anyone needs me I’m off to paint myself green and yell “Waaaagh!” at anyone who walks past my house.

      I wasn’t expecting to like the new orcs but some of these look great and I would love to paint some up

    Not wanting to be a voice of dissent here, but I really don’t like that Ork boss at all… I think it is the aesthetics rather than the actual miniature.. he doesn’t look like an Ork any more (well to me anyway)…it’s a bit like the goblins in the Lord of the rings and the Hobbit, total chalk and cheese difference….plus who is driving that chariot 🤣… cor I am being a miserable get tonight!

      Funnily enough I think I like it for the same reasons you mentioned! It looked to me like an interring blend of lord of the rings and the older Warhammer models.

        I spent ages trying to work out what they looked like… then it came to me…the indigenous people on Pandora in Avatar… he looks just like the wise woman.
