It is a dark age. An age where mighty armies from powerful nations clash to carve out empires on the field of battle. An age where alliances can be fleeting, and today’s friends can be tomorrow’s foes. It is an age where the Winds of Magic must be mastered, and where brave soldiers clash against endless hordes of enemies. And for those who are victorious, it can be an age of glory, no matter how fleeting.

 
Warhammer: the Old World is a game unlike any other, in which you command mighty armies of Citadel miniatures, relying upon your own tactical ingenuity to achieve victory.
 
This book contains all the information you need to get started in this engaging game and become the conquering general of a fantasy army.
 
Inside this 352-page hardback book, you will find:
 
The World of Legend: A comprehensive history of the Warhammer world and an introduction to the many races and armies that wage eternal war for dominance over it.
 
The Core Rules: From the general principles, through movement and manoeuvre, to unleashing hails of arrows at your foe and, finally, smashing your enemies aside in deadly close combat.
 
The Advanced Rules: Rules for rare and potent troops such as war machines, chariots, monsters, and mighty heroes, each adding even more depth to your games.
 
Realms of Magic: An explanation of the Winds of Magic and rules for wielding a wide range of devastating and devious spells.
 
Armies of the Old World: A showcase of beautifully painted armies from the talented painters of the world-famous ’Eavy Metal team.

  • Death Charmer Jaga Jaga Minion Gatorman Warlock

    Jaga-Jaga Hordes Minions Warlock has risen to prominence as a high priestess of the Blindwater Congregation. In her talons writhe the spirits of death drawn from the swamps, each eager to comply with her designs. She is an enigmatic creature, whispering into the darkness to converse with ravening things of shadow. Around her the unseen spirits bubble close to the surface, drawn to her as leeches are drawn to disturbances in the water.

  • Minion Gatorman Soul Slave

    Soul Slave Gatormen bokors do not loathe death, as other creatures and their dark arts are sacred rituals. The dank powers of death rise steaming from the swamps and can be bound into dead flesh, harnessed to augment the cold-blooded warlocks leading the Blindwater Congregation. Bereft of thought and suffused with necromantic power, the Soul Slave serves as a conduit for the will of its master.

  • Gatorman Husk Minions

    Gatorman Husk have disgusting and bloated bodies stuffed near to bursting with all manner of venomous insects, and each new generation adds to the swarm wriggling within to distend the body ever further. Bokors direct these undead carriers at their enemies, hoping that a bullet or blade will puncture the husk’s swollen flesh. Even a small rupture causes the husk to burst into a grotesque, stinging cloud of swamp flies and worse that sows panic and disease among the enemy’s ranks.

  • Kingdom Of Bretonnia: Knights Of The Realm

    Knights of the Realm make up the bulk of Bretonnia’s nobility and its armed might, and command great respect for both their high station and the deeds they performed to attain it. Knights Errant, however, are the youthful sons and daughters of Bretonnian nobles, bold young warriors who seek any opportunity to earn their spurs under the chivalric code. Heavily armoured, mounted on fine warhorses, and assembled into an unstoppable lance formation, a charge of Bretonnian Knights has the power to shatter enemy hordes like kindling under a woodsman's axe.

     
    This multipart plastic kit builds 12 mounted Knights of the Realm or Knights Errant, bold heavy cavalry from the Kingdom of Bretonnia. Each Knight is a noble warrior, carrying a lance with a sheathed sword at their belt. They're protected in battle by heavy armour and shields, and their warhorses are similarly clad in flowing barding. This kit provides all the command upgrades you'll need – musicians, standard bearers, and champions – whether you choose to field your Knights as a lance of 12 models or two units of six.
     
    You'll find a variety of helmeted heads, which are topped by heraldic devices befitting Knights of the Realm, such as dragons, unicorns, and antlers, or decorated by streaming ribbons and other tokens of favour for Knights Errant. The kit also offers bare heads, lance poses, knightly adornments, and horse heads, to really personalise your Bretonnian Knights. Note that the horse heads provided in this kit are a random selection, and may differ from those pictured.
     
    This kit contains 180 plastic components, 12x Citadel 30x60mm Rectangular Bases, and a Bretonnian Transfer Sheet containing 176 high-quality waterslide transfers.
     
    These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
