Age of Sigmar: Mortal Realms Issue One. Hachette Partworks

Here is my look at the very first issue of Age of Sigmar: Mortal Realms from Hachette Partworks, in conjunction with Games Workshop. 

Like its sister magazine Warhammer 40,000: Conquest, Age of Sigmar: Mortal Realms will build up week by week and allow you to collect two mighty armies over the course of the magazines eighty issue run.  Will you collect the magnificent Stormhosts, loyal to the God King Sigmar, or will you side with death incarnate with the servants of the dread Nagash Lord of the Undead and his Nighthaunt?

Issue One comes with 6 six-sided dice, a plastic ruler, a battlemat, 3 Stormhost Sequitors and 10 Nighthaunt Chainrasps, as well as the weekly magazine, and a huge poster that previews what is coming over the next three issues, with some fantastic artwork on the reverse side! All of this for the bargain price of just £2.99 which is a huge saving on regular retail prices!

The Sequitors come in a gold plastic, that really makes them stand out and is in keeping with the Stormhost models, while the Chainrasps are molded in a teal coloured plastic for some reason which looks okay but would have perhaps been better in a green colour or grey!

As I point out in the video, I am new to Age of Sigmar, having only played a handful of games so this is a learning curve for myself and I will take a more indepth look at the magazine in future videos.

The magazine is well laid out and simple to follow and each week will build upon the lore of the game, its characters and history, as well as expand the rules for you to learn.  While aimed squarely at new players, this weekly magazine will offer something for everyone, most importantly a huge saving when compared to regular retail prices!

Following the same format as its sister magazine Conquest, each issue will focus on the models provided, and give clear instructions on how to get the best from them, including assembly and painting and what tactics work well with them during games.

Age of Sigmar: Mortal Realms is available now in all good news stockists or directly from Hachette Partworks via subscription.

If you subscribe you will be eligible for a host of free gifts that will come with the issues, but you will need to subscribe from issue one to receive any of the bonus gifts, something that I found out sadly to my cost with the subscription to Conquest.

Over all a great looking new magazine that will help introduce new gamers to the hobby and once again well thought out and executed by Hachette Partworks!

Issue 2 comes with  4 easy-to-build Banshees, Corax White paint and brush.

Issue 3 comes with 4 easy-to-build Castigators with Gryph-Hound and Retributor Armour paint.

Issue 4 comes with 4 easy-to-build Glavewraith Stalkers, Nihilakh Oxide paint and battle mat.

I plan on covering each issue in the same way as I did with Conquest but will try to go more in-depth with my weekly written reviews.
