Added background, more maps, rules changes like ... not being able to shoot out of combat ... seems like it could be an improvement.

The new edition is designed to consolidate on everything you love about Warhammer Age of Sigmar, while refining gameplay, adding depth and darkness to the lore of the Mortal Realms, and transforming magic into something very special indeed.

You may have cast a Purple Sun before, but never like this Ė get ready for roaming, predatory spells, fantastical enchantments and summoned sorceries that arenít just words on a warscroll but active (and very deadly) participants in your games.








There will also be a webcomic to help kick it off.

The new starter box seems ideal to me since I was intending to get Stormcast anyways.

Every time I turn around they're adding something new to that log.  I couldn't even find the new starter set.

Enjoyed seeing the new sisters of battle figure on there though.

I know I saw them talking about the new starter set, but I don't think I saw a decent picture of it myself. Just a partial. Did they put up a list of contents somewhere yet?

There hasn't been any official announcement of start box contents yet.

Though having said that, on the Warhammer Community site, they haven't put up full detailed pics of all the miniatures that were on display at Warhammer Fest, so speculation is that the stuff they have shown is starter box contents

I can't believe that I am saying this, but the undead models look very good (for the most part)! They are the first AoS models that I like.

Magic in the new edition:
https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/05/22/22nd-may-magic-casting-and-unbindinggw-homepage-post-2/

the 2 standard spells Arcane Bolt and Mystic Shield are getting toned down




unbinding now at 30" instead of 18"

each realm will get specific spells much like the winds of magic from old.. something tells me that you have to make sure to choose a realm before battle some way



and in a new article they will talk about endless spells and predatory spells

Summoning adressed
https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/05/24/24th-may-rules-preview-summoning-for-freegw-homepage-post-2/

Every army gets a way to earn points for a faction specific resouce in which they can then use to summon units.. this is cost free
So now you build your 2000 point army as a 2000 point army and any summoning you can get during the game is bonus

I'd have to see the full rules to see if this is workable, and fair.  Bringing back a unit of 30 grave guard, or Mortarch isn't the same as summoning a unit of 10 zombies.

I agree. I like being able to summon some zombies or maybe some units of demons without having to preplan the points. I'm not fond of the thought of anything getting summoned.

It sounds like all armies will get some form of summoning.  It could mean games drag on a lot longer, if everyone can summon.

Shooting: When in combat (read when within 3" of an enemy unit) you can shoot but only at a unit within 3"

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/05/28/28th-may-rules-preview-shooting-in-combatgw-homepage-post-2/



But still ok on free units able to shoot at a unit that is in combat..
