AOS FAQ: Every Faction in 5 Words or Less

We’ve got the Core Rules. We’ve got the General’s Handbook. And now we’ve got the third pillar: the FAQ.

We know what we’re working with, so let’s dive in and pick the bones out of it.

We’re gonna bash through everything in alphabetical order, snarking over analyzing the key takeaway for each faction with a rate of fire that Arrow Boys would be proud of, and a similar degree of precision.

Ready? Let’s go.

BOSH how easy was that! Thanks to all the artists who gave permission to use their minis (including Sado for the cover image) – go check them out and give them a follow on Twitter – as well as Dan for reminding me about the Soulblight change. Thank yoooo!

The site has been a bit quiet recently as I’ve had a lot on outside of Warhammer (how rude!), but I’m aiming to crank it up again over the coming weeks.

In the meantime, there’s plenty of great coverage out there, and I’ve been particularly enjoying Goonhammer for the writings, and Warhammer Weekly for the talkings. So go check them out.

Next article should be a feature on Battle Tactics, going into a little more depth on how I’ll be going about winning games in this brave new world. Or getting drunk and tabled, but hopefully the winning thing. See you then!
