Warhammer Age of Sigmar is Warhammer back to its roots with the spiritual successor to Warhammer Fantasy Battle. This large-scale Wargame allows players to create armies of the different Warhammer factions and battle it out with a wide variety of fantasy races.

With the focus being on fantasy races and historic battles the kinds of large mechs and futuristic armor you might be used to seeing in Warhammer 40,000 are replaced with medieval weaponry and spells. Each faction that you play as in Age of Sigmar is part of one of four super-factions. These are Order, Chaos, Death, and Destruction. Players will experience all kinds of high-fantasy races including elves, dwarves, and orks when building up their armies.

While Warhammer Fantasy Battle was around from 1983-2015 it was in 2015 that it was relaunched as Warhammer Age of Sigmar. Since its release it has had the following editions:

  • Warhammer: Age of Sigmar (1st Edition) - 2015
  • Warhammer: Age of Sigmar (2nd Edition) - 2018
  • Warhammer: Age of Sigmar (3rd Edition) - 2021
