Games Workshop is previewing each faction in the Age of Sigmar once per day and while I am catching up from yesterday, here is the Stormcast Eternals.
1" coherency is very close to each other.
A table size of 44” by 60” is recommended for armies ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 points. The Stormcasts’ larger base size and ability to spread out and control board space on the new size of battlefield is very much a boon.
Sigmar’s chosen are as varied as the Realms themselves. The God-King only chooses souls with the strength and determination to further his cause, and there’s a wealth of Black Library fiction to enjoy covering their backstories and heroic deeds in service of Sigmar. Of course, you can always create your own Stormcast Chamber and create stories of your own.In battle, the Stormcast Eternals have always been a versatile army, and the addition of new units over time has allowed them to cater to an even wider variety of play styles. Their infantry troops are stoic and hard to shift, their heavy hitters ride fanged Dracoths and mighty Stardrakes, and Sigmar grants their Wizards the power to call down meteors. What’s more, they’re a joy to collect, and they look fantastic on the table.The rules in the Dominion box add a new allegiance ability for the Stormcast, representing their heroic sacrifice and their explosive return to heavens.
Biggest WinnersThe updated rules in the Core Book have subtle but powerful effects on existing units. We asked Chuck to pick out three Stormcast Eternals units that enjoy a nice boost from the new edition.RetributorsChuck: Retributors have been a punishing unit ever since Sigmar unleashed them upon the Mortal Realms, and are set to make a strong impact in the new edition. The new board size means their prodigious damage output will be in range of the enemy faster than ever before, giving you even more opportunity to strike hard with their lightning hammers.JudicatorsJudicators with Skybolt Bows are a staple of most Stormcast Eternals armies, and this isn’t likely to change in the new edition. Their ability to deal quality damage at range is a great way to soften up your enemy before your slower-moving foot troops finish them off in melee.Knight-VexillorThe ability to re-roll charges for nearby units will be handy, as you’re more likely to be rolling to charge in earlier Battle Rounds with the new board size. The Pennant of the Stormbringer is also a great way to help reposition your slower-moving units, like Retributors, to secure your victory.
