This is an overview of all the Warbands and Factions for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Warcry.
A note on the links used (Affiliate Links)
When I mention a product and link to it, I will direct you to a webstore depending on your location. If you buy something from that store, I will get a small percentage of that as income. This is how the site is kept running.
The stores I link to are:
Goblin Gaming comes with my highest recommendation. Their prices are good (about 20% normal GW prices), their reviews are great (5 star on Trustpilot with +10.000 reviews) and their speed and customer service is top of the game.
The best thing about Goblin Gaming is that they really care about the community. They have reached out to a number of content creators to create partnerships beyond just a simple affiliate scheme. What does this mean? They want to help build the community. So support those guys with buying from their site!
For some weird reason, shops cannot send Warhammer from the UK/Europe to the UK (GW policy). So if you are US based you have to buy your Warhammer from a US store.
I have tried making a deal with some US store regarding sending my traffic there, but nothing has really worked out. Also, it seems the that most people support their local store and buy from there.
So, I am just going to send you to Amazon, because I have no idea where you really want to buy your Warhammer products and I have found no consensus on what online stores are good in the US.
If you like this content, feel free to show your support by buying your next Warhammer purchase after you have clicked on a link. It will help me produce new content and keep everything up to date.

Overview of all Warcry Warbands
On release 3 different unique chaos warbands where available. We know the models and name for 4 more. Also, we know of two more Warbands already being confirmed for future release. The Warcry website says that there are 9 Warbands, so there is at least one more chaos Warband we do not know the name.
Besides the Chaos Warbands, 9 factions from Age of Sigmar can make a warband. So far, we will have no unique miniatures for other than the chaos warbands.
The Chaos Warbands for Warcry are:
- Untamed Beasts (in the starter set). Check out the guide for them here.
- Iron Golems (in the starter set)
- Cypher Lords (available as a standalone box)
- Corvus Cabal (available as a standalone box)
- Splintered Fang (available as a standalone box)
- The Unmade(available as a standalone box)
- Spire Tyrants (future release, no release date yet)
- Scions of the Flame (future release, no release yet)
The non-Chaos Warbands for Warcry are:
- Stormcast Eternals
- Daughters of Khaine
- Idoneth Deepkin
- Legions of Nagash
- Flesh-Eater Courts
- Gloomspite Gitz
The non-chaos warband do not have any dedicated Warcry box, but are made up if miniatures from units from Age of Sigmar. So if you want to play those warbands you have to buy the Warcry card pack for the faction and get the minis somehow.
Building a Warband in Warcry
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 maximum of 1000 points
I suggest using the Warband builder GW released, as it is pretty good and covers what you need for a quick build but can also do the campaign stuff. You can find the Varanscribe builder here (note that some browsers do not show the builder).
If you are a bit more the pen and paper kind of person, Guy_De_Lombard over on Reddit made a sweet Warband Roster you can print out (there is one in the book, but you would have to photocopy it).
Untamed Beasts Warcry Warband
The Untamed Beasts is one of the two Warbands for Warcry that comes in the starter set.
- The Warband consists of 9 miniatures out of the 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

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!
