Warhammer: Age of Sigmar is getting its next major expansion, Broken Realms, which will advance the miniatures game’s story with new narrative scenarios, rules and models.

Broken Realms will comprise a series of books featuring lore and rules, with the first focused on the Shadow Queen, Morathi.

The 60-page tome will include story details and battleplans based around five factions during the end of the Mortal Realms setting’s Soul Wars, as well as introducing new gameplay rules for the Stormcast Eternals, Daughters of Khaine, Cities of Sigmar, Slaves to Darkness and Idoneth Deepkin.

The rules include the new Zainthar Kai allegiance for the Daughters of Khaine, as well as new keywords for the Slaves to Darkness and the ability to field Misthåvn and Har Kuron as Cities of Sigmar.

Launching alongside the core Broken Realms: Morathi book will be a new box set, Shadow & Pain, featuring 38 models for Hedonites of Slaanesh and Daughters of Khaine led by new hero miniatures - a Lord of Pain leading the Slaanesh units and a Melusai Ironscale heading up Morathi’s troops. The starter set will include everything needed to play out of the box - minus dice - plus a 40-page booklet featuring narrative concerning the armies’ battle.

Four additional boxes will be released, each featuring a warscroll battalion featuring in the Morathi book: The Bloodsurf Hunt, Gresh’s Iron Reapers, Van Brecht’s Black Watch and Kraeth’s Shadowpact.

Broken Realms: Morathi is yet to have a release date confirmed. There are no announced details on future books and miniatures in the rest of the series.
