What is Age of Sigmar?

After Declan’s great article on getting started with Warmaster, we decided to perhaps turn this into a little series. So today I bring you getting started in Age of Sigmar!

Warhammer: Age of Sigmar is a skirmish tabletop game for two or more players where you command several armies from a huge range that goes from Humans, Dwarves, High Elves, Undead Vampires, Orcs, Beastman and lots of races. This book provides you with all the rules you need to play, and guides you through collecting and painting your own army of Citadel miniatures.


It has been given a rating of 6.7 on BoardGameGeek from 600+ ratings.

Games Workshop has produced a number of videos explaining how to play Age of Sigmar.

1. Introduction

2. Overview

3. Warscrolls

4. Hero Phase

5. Movement Phase

6. Shooting Phase

7. Charge Phase

8. Combat Phase

9. Battleshock Phase

As this is a Games Workshop game, there are tonnes of support and websites out there dedicated to the Age of Sigmar. Some of my favourites include:

Warscroll Builder (Allowing you to make lists quickly)
The Honest Wargamer Scorecard
Cheatsheet
