Hello everyone !!

Today go on pre-order the season 3 starter for the excellent Warhammer Underworlds game: Beastgrave! Third season and the games have become a staple for competitive play in the Warhammer Franchise.

To review this box we are going to look at the content of the box, the Backstory of Beastgrave, the models, the rules changes and the cards.

Beastgrave Content

The starter provides everything you need to start playing right away. 2 warbands, 3 sheets of tokens, 2 double-sided board, Rules, assembly instruction and a learn to play mini-book. Everything is of good quality and well made.

Beastgrave Fluff

The fluff is: A mystic mountain in Ghur got infected with the Katophrane curse and call different warbands and bind them into an eternal fight ( until season 4^^ )

Some mysterious shadows are hanging around, Also one of the board sides is named after them.

Silent People
warhammer underworlds beastgrave review

Interesting and could serve the development of realm fluff in the future. Sadly there is no page showing all the different warbands.

But there is 2 fluff snippet for Rippa's and Grymwatch

Also are mentionned :


  • Ogor of Voracia (Hungering gullet)

  • Athmora of the Fanged steppes (follower of the one that lurk below

  • Fushola (no more info)

  • StoneSpeaker peoples

  • Ghanua

I guess that next 2 warbands are Rippa and Watchgrave and the rest will come after.

Beastgrave Models

Excellent quality, easy to build a bit smaller than I imagined but that's me. The Beastmen models are so damn good, I want my fingers to be like them now (and good).
Centaur is also great and I can't wait for the centaur army! ;)
note: Now that I have the model in hand, I think, that, satyrs are a lot better than on the pics.

Beastgrave Boards



Good quality, good design, Double-sided, hard cardboard (like the old one). The finish is a bit more mat that older board and I prefer the look and the touch of this one. Red hex is for lethal and white of scenery.

Beastgrave Rules Changes

This was already covered but :


  • Guard action buffed, now prevent push

  • Both player get to place a lethal hex before the game start

  • Feature hex : Now objectives counter are double sided with Lethal on the other side, some card transform them

  • Hunters/Quarries keywords : Cards can give you one of the two keywords for exemple this card

  • warhammer underworlds beastgrave review

    It's a good themed mechanism in Beastgrave and allow to threaten the super buffed character the opponent plan to build.

  • Superaction / Charge nerf

  • warhammer underworlds beastgrave review

    Now the combination of two actions is called a superaction and are treated as a single block! For checking is the Inspire condition is met or not.

  • Surge Objective

  • It's not in the book but if you play tournament format the Surge Objectives are getting limited to 6 per deck.

    Note: A surge objective is one that you score immediately when the conditions are met.

  • The Stack in underworld

  • The stack is a priority management concept used in Magic the Gathering and other good cards game. Beastgrave have some lines on it in the Reactions section. Good first step

  • Combat sequence

  • Gw included an amasing flow chart for resolving actions :

Beastgrave Cards

The different online deck builders are already updated and the all of the Beastgrave cards are here

https://warhammerunderworlds.com/deck-builder/

Conclusion

Solid core set, love the Ghur Theme and I'm eager to see more info on the realm and is habitant.
The Season 3 comes with a rotation on all the common seasons 1 cards( they chose to keep the season 1 warbands) so for sure it's going to create some interesting meta.

The game is great and it's a good time to play it!

/Cheers

Shadespire Season 1 is no longer available to Order by Retailer

Tags : beastgrave underworld age of sigmar shadespire

Small thumb 70510495 500002747482789 1500928273511612416 n

Hello everyone !!!

Underworld Season 1 Shadespire is getting phased out. Retailers can no longer order these.
At first, it was a weird rumour and It's been in the air for quite some time now.


The 6 Shadespire Warbands (Sepulchral Guard, Chosen Axes, Ironskull’s Boyz, Magore’s Fiends, Farstriders, Spiteclaw’s Swarm) are no longer available to order.

Some of your customers may have questions about what this means for their existing decks, warbands, and games. We will soon be publishing a Warhammer Community article about the future for Warhammer Underworlds. For now, be assured that all current warbands will be playable in Beastgrave!

So this is it, Rotation but what is rotating Warband ? Deck ? Objectives ?

If you think about it Season 3 removing season 1 is very close to the Standard Format by Magic The Gathering :


Once a year, with the release of the new fall set, the two oldest blocks still legal in Standard rotate out of the format. Because of this, no set is Standard-legal for more than two years. For example, When Ixalan set released in fall 2017, Battle for Zendikar, Oath of the Gatewatch, Shadows over Innistrad, Eldritch Moon, and Welcome Deck 2016 (which counted as a part Shadows over Innistrad in rotation) rotated out of Standard.

With the introduction of Three-and-One Model, Since 2019 (or effectively in 2018), the four oldest expansion/core sets in Standard, as well as any other Standard-legal set released during that period will rotate out. For example, fall 2019 rotation will cause Ixalan, Rivals of Ixalan, Dominaria, and Core 2019 (as well as regional exclusive set Global Series: Jiang Yanggu & Mu Yanling) to leave Standard.

Warhammer Underworld : Beastgrave

Tags : beastgrave underworld shadespire

Small thumb genconreveals aug1 whuwbeastgravebox12hvjhrs

Hello everyone !!

Beastgrave reveals ! A new season for Shadespire Underworld. (season 3)

The fluff is: Necroquake damaged the mirrored city, and the Katophrane curse is bleeding into a magic mountain in GHUR, the Beastgrave !!!!!
Yea i know the story is a bit limited but they had to find a way to transport everything in Ghur for the Warhammer Underworld season 3 !!!


Beastgrave also brings us to another of the Mortal Realm’s underworlds, as the setting of the game moves to the savage depths of Ghur. The Necroquake has permanently damaged the Mirrored City, causing it to bleed into the ancient mountain known as the Beastgrave.

As the curse of the Katophranes leeches into the long-dormant edifice, savage powers thought long-dead awaken, with streets of Shadeglass jutting from pillars of bone and catacombs of living amber. Just as in previous Warhammer Underworlds games, you’ll discover the mysterious history of the Beastgrave in art and card text, offering you a glimpse of one of the Mortal Realms’ most fascinating locations.

The box pit on the of the best beastmen models in a decade !!! but off course the most interesting reveal is the Kurnothi, Aelf forgotten in Ghur for so long that they started to transform in Beast with satyr bottom or centaurs ! wardancers future is bestial to say the least ^^


Skaeth’s Wild Hunt offers us new insights into the Mortal Realms with our first look at the Kurnothi – aelf-like creatures with a savage style of their own. Offering a fast and highly specialised group of fighters, they’re a deadly and flexible Warband capable of cutting down enemies at any range.

/Cheers.
Bob.

Age of Sigmar Warhammer Fest thread 2

Tags : underworld chaos warcry

Small thumb fest2019 sat15 warcrysf3ikcd 1

Hello again !!

The Warhammer : Age of Sigmar seminar for this Warhammer Fest is done and here what we have learned :

Warcry

Warcry is the new game by Games Workshop in the Mortal realm (Age of Sigmar universe). It's a Skirmish game inspired by both Necromunda and Kill Team, where Chaos Warband fight each others to the death or Glory in Varanspire the Archaon Citadelle. Games Workshop already announced that Non Chaos warband would be playable at start.

Warhammer : Warcry is set for release in July. It's a new game that will be supported my multiple future release (no details Yet).

To increase the Hype, warhammer tv team made a LARP video ^^

The SplinteredFangs

New Chaos Warband for Warhammer : Warcry

These guys might hail from the Realm of Life, but they’ve got nothing but death for their foes! And snakes – lots and lots of snakes. These guys show off facets of Chaos rarely seen on the tabletop, as one of the insidious murder cults who use cunning as much as brute force to claim victory. Just like with the Iron Golems and Untamed Beasts, the Splintered Fang show off new aspects of Chaos – there’s even an aelf amongst them!




Underworld Season 3

Shadespire Underworld, is the Games Workshop card game in the Age of Sigmar world. he's continuing his successful existence with loads of events around the globe. The season 2 is coming to an End and they already announced the season 3.

Also they spoiled a model :

General Handbook 2019

The General Handbook is the ultimate Game Supplement for Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
The Edition 2019 is split into 2 books.

Open Play
This year’s essential guide for gaming in the Mortal Realms is packed with content for every kind of player. For open play, a new Open War army generator means you’ll be able to rally your forces in moments, while close-quarters battles and Hidden Agendas offer fresh challenges for you to get your teeth into.

Narrative
For narrative players, you’ll be able to get stuck in with an in-depth set of rules for fighting in the cities and ruins of the Mortal Realms in Streets of Death. New mercenary companies allow you to add a selection of narrative-led, thematic units to your army. Perhaps you’ll employ the Maneaters of the Gutstuffers, or a Gargant from the notorious Grugg Brothers. Meanwhile, characterful name generators for loads of factions mean you’ll never be with our an appropriately epic moniker for your favourite Hero!

Matched Play
Matched play won’t just be receiving new battleplans, but rather a whole new way to play, aimed at making smaller games viable for tournaments and competitive events. Balanced around the 1,000-point mark, Meeting Engagements offer key twists on normal Warhammer Age of Sigmar gameplay, is fast to play and takes up a smaller space than a fully fledged game. This makes it ideal if you’re building up an army, fancy a new challenge or just want to squeeze as many gamers into your club as possible!

It's really interesting to see small points battle for Age of Sigmar getting focus. A lot of Small FLGS or Warhammer store do one day small Age of Sigmar tournaments but the game balance is always a bit meh. Now if we get Battleplan and "sutff" to play good games at 1k points sign me in !

Conclusion

-Warcry is going to be an Awesome Skirmish game in the Age of Sigmar setting.
-Shadespire Season 3 announced (never doubted it)
-Age of sigmar 1000 pt small tournament format
-General Handbook 2019 is 2 books instead of 1

/Cheers.
