Age of Sigmar: Latest rumors

We grab at every little bit of info now because we still don't know much about Age of Sigmar/9th ed or not etc.

Don't have anything new I'm afraid but here are the latest stuff,

Age of Sigmar box contents

via Steve the Warboss
1x Empire General on Griffin
5x Knights of Sigmar
10x State Troops with Spears
10x State Troops with Muskets

1x Lord of Khorne on Daemonsteed
5x Chaos Knights
10x Chaos Warriors

-No small Rulebook
-Full rules for all Models
-Small Intro of the Fluff (Humans only)
-5 Scenarios to introduce Players
-Text is very childfriendly writen

This rumour don't sound too off contentwise, but could be just an educated guess from Steve (someone among the rumormongers that is much of a hit or miss when coming to rumors if I recall it correctly) 

Next one is from Faet212.

We have some solid information now that looks like it was accidentally put onto the German Games Workshop website. The best part is that we have the screenshots that reveal that the Age of Sigmar will come with Free Rules.

I have checked the website, and this is no longer there, or at least that I could find.

Please take this as a rumor right now, until at least someone can either find it or verify it. I have closely checked the images and the site, and it all seems to line up.

The page reads like this......
"Contained within this free download is the core ruleset needed in order to begin your own adventures within the Age of Sigmar. This four-page PDF is yours to keep, print out and play with, and when combined with a Warscroll Compendium or two-available below, also totally free- is everything you need to know. Grab it, read it, and begin playing right away!"

Here are the images sent in by a reader on Faeit 212
A member of our gaming group send a screengrab of the German webstore with
a pod of Macragge Blue labled as Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Rules (PDF).

Pictures found here.

This sounds plausible as well, GW want's as many people as possible to try out the new game, free rules is great for that. They can bring out a nice Rulebook, with more fluff, scenarios etc. and people can buy that if they want (and if people get's into the game most probably will) or just play with the free rules. This isn't something totally new to GW, they had all the specialist games rule books in free pdfs for a long time, like Mordheim and Inquisitor, but those where on the other hand dead games.

That's it for now, if anyone know more any more rumors please share in the comments, I'm very interested in everything 'Age of Sigmar' right now. 


  1. I´m confused. State troops don´t fit with the idea of "Sigmar barbarians" that I can read in other rumours.
    Are you agree?

    1. Totally, and not with "Sigmarines" either. But I dunno, I do think GW want something like the Imperium and foremost Space Marines in Warhammer. And now they have the opportunity to do that, so maybe we will have something like holy heavily armoured men infused with the power of Sigmar which makes the more an equivalent of Chaos Warriors. And Sigmar who is now building up and expanding the Empire in this new world. (Like the Emperor in 40k did before the heresy and all that) And most probably we will also have statetroops in some form being 'normal' soldiers, like Imperial Guard.

      I just hope they keep the fantasy flavor.

    2. Well I just jave seen the two armies in the box, and no state troops for now, as you have said there are some many Sigmarites "heavily armoured". Not a precise pic, so I can´t say if I like them very much, but for now I like the Chaos Stuff. The human band seems similar to the Mantic Human Stuff, at least, both have "angels".

    3. Yeah they did pretty much exactly like what I thought they would. Just hoping there's more 'normal' humans as well. Not just these supersoldiers.
