Getting the Miniatures and Cards for the various Warbands
Each Warband in Warcry have a specific set of models that they can use in the game. Those models will be listed on the back of the warbands ability card.
The ability card will list the special abilities of the Warband.
Each fighter in a warband will also have a separate card detailing the stats of that fighter.
Some warbands have a dedicated box where you can buy several different miniatures (about 8-10 minis a box). If you buy that box, you will get all of the cards you need to play that warband.
If there is no dedicated box for that Warband you need to buy the models from various Age of Sigmar miniature boxes.
I am making guides for each Warband and in those, I will go over what options you have with regards to buying the various warbands.
You can buy a card pack for each warband, at least if you can find a copy. Once they are sold out they are not getting a reprint.
If cannot find the warband cards you can find them in the Tome of Champions.
Building a Warband
When you build a warband for pick up and play in Warcry, you just have to follow a few simple guidelines:
- You need 1 leader, but you cannot have more than 1
- You need between 3 and 15 fighters
- You can have a maximum of 1000 points
Sadly, it is not looking like GW will update it with anything released after the core book.
Luckily for us, Tim over at Fantastic Friday has created a sweet interactive pdf (remember to donate a few monies if you like what he has made)

The Untamed Beasts is one of the two Warbands for Warcry that comes in the current starter set. Post-release GW has also released a box for the warband (as the starter set will disappear at some point) and box for the Slaves to Darkness (which is basically two warband boxes but without the warcry cards).
- The Warband consists of 9 miniatures out of the standard box
- The 9 minis in the box come to a total of exactly 1000 point
- They have a very classic marauder/barbarian look with quite a lot of beast aesthetic
Miniatures available for the Untamed Beasts
Preytaker with Fanged Axe
The Iron Golem is the other of the two Warbands for Warcry that comes in the starter set. You can also buy them separately in either a Warband box with the cards or double the miniatures but without the cards.
- The Warband consists of 8 miniatures out of the standard box
- The 8 minis in the box come to a total of exactly 975 points

The Cypher Lords is a standalone box available for purchase the day Warcry is released. Like the other first wave chaos warbands, you can get a Slaves to Darkness box with double the sprues from the normal box.
- The Warband consists of 8 miniatures out of the box (1 Thrallmaster, 1 Luminate, 3 Mirrorblades and 3 Mindbound)

Note on image: most of the images are lifted from various social media posts and some are also submitted. Thanks for people for sharing. The above image is stolen from Anon on 4chan. I could have easily cropped out the small message in the image, but I just agree so much I left it there (even though I had to blur out some of it).
Scions of the Flame
If you want to play a non-chaos faction in Warcry, you currently have 9 options.
Do note that no new miniatures or “boxes” of Warbands are being released except for the chaos stuff. Instead, 9 non-chaos factions are getting one ability card and fighter cards for the miniatures that are usable in Warcry.
So if you want to play with one of the factions below, you need to get the pack of cards and get your hands on the miniatures from the different boxes they are in.
This means that the following warbands are really easy to start if you have the models (all you need is the card pack), but if not if you have to go hunting for those minis.
Note: the card pack are selling out on quite a lot of sites, and GW is notorious for not reprinting cards once they are sold out. Get them while you can!
