Games Workshop announced six new Age of Sigmar Regiments of Renown bundles on the Warhammer Community website on Wednesday. These bundles of existing kits represent mercenary forces that can join other armies from the same Grand Alliance, bringing their innate capabilities and some extra special rules.
The Warhammer Community article explains that you’ll be able to add these regiments to Age of Sigmar armies from the same Grand Alliance, though it doesn’t explain how this will work.
It does explain that they will join a new ‘Regiments of Renown Battalion’, consisting of a hero and at least one unit. The battalion has the ‘unified’ benefit, which grants one-drop deployment (allowing you to deploy all the models at once) but requires you to place the units within 6” of the battalion’s hero.
According to the WarCom article “full rules for these Regiments of Renown will be included in next month’s issue of White Dwarf and will also be free to download from the Warhammer Community site when the boxes go on sale” – though it doesn’t clarify when that will actually be, or how much they will cost.
We’ve compiled the recommended retail price of the contents of each box. See if you can spot a bargain when they go on sale!
