I always love it when GW does this. I almost would say that if they did not say this I would be disappointed and concerned about a bad change in the wind. So with that said, lets take a look at a preview of the core rules for the new edition for the Age of Sigmar.

Is this not a meme yet?

The core rules have been rewritten from scratch to create the most concise and elegantly explained ruleset ever. Great care was taken to retain the feel of the game while adding clarity and making it easier for new players to pick up. Veteran gamers will recognise everything they love about Warhammer Age of Sigmar – but it’s been broken down, analysed, updated, and reassembled in a ground-breaking new layout.

Let’s have a peek at a section, so you can see for yourself.

All of the rules have been given a number for easy referencing, and the key sections are clarified with additional points to make everything crystal clear. You’ll also find margin notes which call out referenced rules, points to note, and examples. We asked the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Studio for an interview to give you some insights into their thought process – take a look.

With these new rules creating the best battle system yet, those taking their first brave steps into the Mortal Realms can quickly get comfortable with the basics, before drilling down to learn more about each phase.

As an added bonus, when you’re in the thick of battle and need to check a rule, the new layout helps you find the section you need so you can get back to rolling dice fast.

If this leaves you eager to learn more about what’s on the way for Warhammer Age of Sigmar, you’re in luck. Catch up with the Dominion unboxing event to see what’s in the launch box, then check back here tomorrow for another look at the new edition.

If you haven’t already, visit the Warhammer Age of Sigmar website to find out everything there is to know so far, and watch the unbelievably awesome cinematic trailer (trust us – it’s worth rewatching a few times).
