Warhammer Age of Sigmar Stormbringer Delivery 1: Issues 1-2 Review – Introduction

Warhammer 40.000 Imperium hasn’t even finished yet, but Hachette Partworks and Games-Workshop have come out swinging with another magazine subscription service. Over the last few years, these partworks have come to form an integral part of the hobby – particularly during the Covid-19 Lockdown periods, where having a bunch of models dropped on your doorstep by a masked-up postman was far easier than going out to your FLGS for your model fix.

Hachette and GW turn from the grimdark 40K sci-fi setting to the (also fairly grimdark at times) fantasy setting Age of Sigmar setting in the new magazine run. Bolters and blasters are set aside for swords and spears, psychic warp-magic is replaced with regular old wizards wielding mystical powers, and swole dudes in big armour trade places with…well, different swole dudes in big armour.

Focussing on the principal factions of Age of Sigmar Third Edition – that’s the Stormcast Eternals and the Orruk Kruleboyz – the new Warhammer partwork promises big things. There’s a great deal mehr on offer in this magazine than previous partworks subscribers might have expected. See, subscribers will be receiving not just their Stormcast Eternals and their Kruleboyz, but also a spread of other models from other factions within both Grand Alliance Order and Grand Alliance Destruction as part of a standard subscription. This means we’ll be seeing some Sylvaneth, Kharadon Overlords, Ironjawz, Gloomspite Gitz – and even more!

And don’t forget, for all the information on this partworks subscription, be sure to check out our Warhammer Stormbringer Magazine Contents List and our Warhammer Stormbringer Magazine Full Collection Savings Breakdown!

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Stormbringer Delivery 1: Issues 1-2 Review – Contents

So, in a pattern that anyone familiar with these releases will be used to, Warhammer Age of Sigmar Stormbringer kicks off with a reasonable-value pair of issues at a knock-down price to get you hooked and invested.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Delivery 1 All

There are 12 models scattered across these two magazines, as well as a host of other bits and pieces to get you interested. Read on for a full breakdown of everything!

The Magazines

First off, we’ll have a spoiler-free look at the magazines. Issue 1 comes packed with all kinds of extra bits too – this is likely not going to be the standard magazine you get with each Stormbringer delivery.

First up, we have the magazine itself. Serving as an introduction to the setting as a whole, there’s loads of information in this magazine about the wider Age of Sigmar mythos, as well as introductions to the Stormcast Eternals and the Kruleboyz Orruks. There are also character sheet-style pull-outs for the miniatures included in this magazine that provide templates for personalising your miniatures with names and backstories. There’s an introduction to painting, and then a good few sides dedicated to learning some basic rules by having your two new miniatures fight.

But there’s a lot more in this magazine, too. First, there’s the poster. I haven’t included a picture of this because the poster is A) huge and B) depicts one of my favourite bits of AoS art ever and I don’t want to ruin the effect for you with a crummy picture here. The reverse of the poster also contains lots of information about the ongoing collection, so take a look at this too.

However, what’s really interesting about this magazine is the foldout. This foldout not only contains a complete list of everything available in the collection, but also gives you the opportunity to record all the names of your miniatures – should you engage with the character sheets mentioned above. It also comes with trackers for building, painting, and playing with each model or unit.

We’ve had a sneaking suspicion for a while that this collection is going to be about constructing narratives and personalising your armies far more than any previous partwork. Whilst in Imperium we were encouraged to name our units, this takes it to the next level by encouraging you to establish lore for your entire army. An interesting inclusion that will strongly appeal to some.

Issue 2 is comparatively slender compared to Issue 1.

Issue 2 continues more or less where Issue 1 left off. The background and lore offered in this magazine keeps it simple still, gently introducing readers to more areas of the Age of Sigmar setting and providing you with more ways to name your units – including a table to roll on for the Gutrippaz you will have received with this issue.

A large part of this magazine is dedicated to getting your Gutrippaz onto the tabletop and stikkin’ ‘Umies with their poisoned spears. You’ll be able to further expand your budding knowledge of AoS rules by having a showdown between your Gitrippaz and the Knight-Arcanum.

Miniaturen

Now, onto the Ja wirklich good stuff – and I’m pleased to say that Issues 1 and 2 get things off to a decent start.

First off, we have the Killaboss and Stab-Grot, and the Knight-Arcanum from Issue 1.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Delivery 1 Issue 1 Models

These guys first premiered when Age of Sigmar: Dominion was first released a couple of years back. Both are designed to be easy to put together and not require all that much glue. Do be aware, however, that there are some pointy and otherwise fragile bits on both these minis, so watch yourself as you’re assembling them else you might break something (like I broke off one of the Killaboss’ helmet horn-things).

Issue 2 unites the Killaboss with his cronies, netting buyers no fewer than 10 Gutrippaz. These models are very easy to assemble: once again, they’re designed to be largely push-fit, though we would always recommend using a few pots of glue here and there just to ensure things stay where they are supposed to.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Delivery 1 Issue 2 Models

A note with these miniatures: whilst contact seams are designed to be as subtle as possible, you will find there are a few gaps and seams on some of these miniatures where one or two of the parts may not go together as nicely as you’d like. If you find this happening to you, check out our How to fill Gaps & Seams on Miniatures Artikel.

We’ve covered Age of Sigmar Third Edition quite extensively since it dropped, which means that we can show off a couple of our painted models to give you all a sense what they may look like when they’re all finished off. Looking at grey plastic is all well and good, but it’s always nice to see what other people have done with their minis by way of inspiration.

I happen to have painted versions of all these minis already, so have a look below for some ideas as to what you could do with yours.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Delivery 1 Knight Arcanum Painted

I kept things simple with my Knight-Arcanum and followed the standard Stormcast Eternals colour scheme.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Delivery 1 Killaboss and Stab Grot Painted

With my Krulebioyz, I decided to go a bit off-piste and painted them a sickly purple/grey colour to mimic the Warlords of Draenor-era Shatterered Hand Orcs from World of Warcraft. I’d previously painted a load of Ironjawz ion a colour scheme loosely inspired by the Mag’har Orcs and decided to double-down on it with these guys. For the Hobgrot’s flesh, I decided to stick with the box art-style yellow.

Kriegsgerät

There are a couple of extra bits included in Issue 1 to get you playing Age of Sigmar. First of all are a six dice.

Warhammer 40.000 Imperium Delivery 3 Würfel

These are fairly standard dice. Nothing fancy here, but they will get the job done.

The double-sided gaming mat, on the other hand…

One side is bereft of any markings but is printed to look like a desert wasteland. This side will likely be sued for larger-scale battles and engagements in future issues of the magazine. The other side, however, is printed to look like a swamp and some Sigmarite ruins (complete with lightning) and is covered in circles. This side will be used in tutorial battles in order to help you ensure you’ve got your models set up in the right spot.
