On Ashen Soil (Age of Sigmar)


On Saturday the 12th of September, with the help of local author Justin MacCormack, we will be running our first Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Event. The event will consist of three simultaneous battles which will be narratively driven with specific objectives. When players have completed one battle, they are allocated a new opponent and play a second battle. Points are awarded for success during these two battles, and at the end of the second battle the player with the most points in total is the victor.

 Tickets will cost £5 and will be available in store or on our Website
(https://www.afistfulofdice.co.uk/event)

Army composition
- Your army is divided into command, and troops. Your command can include units/warcrolls with the HERO, WIZARD and MONSTER keywords. Your command is capped at 20 wounds.
- Your troops may not include units/warcrolls with the HERO, WIZARD and MONSTER keywords. Your troops can be as many models as you like, up to your army's wound cap total. No single unit/warcroll can exceed 20 wounds (ie, a unit of 20 clanrats is cool, a unit of 10 ogres would need to be broken into two seperate units).
- Your army's wound cap total, including your command, is 100.
- A max of only 1 named character per army.
- Each player can field units/warcrolls from any Warhammer Fantasy / Age of Sigmar armies, as long as they are from the same Grand Alliance (ie, you can field an army of elves and dwarves as they are both part of the Order alliance, but could not field dwarves and skaven as the skaven are part of Chaos)
- Each warscroll you feature must appear in the relevant compendiums (ie, no homebrew units)
