In addition to a brand new run of the Warhammer board game, Cursed City, GW have included brand new battlescroll updates to keep competitive play interesting. Now, Age of Sigmar will be getting a brand new battlebox.

In an official post on Warhammer-Community, Games Workshop gave further details about this new Age of Sigmar battlebox, Fury of the Deep. in the broadest strokes, it features two armies, the Idoneth Deepkin are escalating their raids against a coastal stronghold called Ryftmar. Said stronghold is controlled by the Fyreslayers. Leading the Deepkin is a new character called an Akhelian Marauder, while the Fyreslayers have a new Auric Flamekeeper.

As for the Idoneth, their numbers include 10 Namarti Thralls, 10 Namarti Reavers, and an Akhelian Allopex. In addition, you'll get a 40-page booklet containing all the background on the war over Ryftmar, rules for a new Aqshyan Region of War called the Vitriolus Reach, and three battle plans covering the events of the raids. Finally, there will be a 56-page version of the core rulebook, warscroll cards for the miniatures, and tokens to help players keep track of their Command Points.
