21 January 2023
General’s Handbook 2022-23 Season 2
For Season 2 of this 2022-23 edition, the new Matched play battlepack and rules will move the attention to small foot heroes.
Slaves to Darkness release
The Slaves to Darkness release was split in two waves. The first one, in December 2022, included a limited edition box with battletome and some of the new miniatures. In January 2023, the entire army was finally available with the standard battletome and a new Vanguard box replacing the previous Start Collecting.
This box contains a Chaos Lord, a Chaos Chariot, 5 of the new Chaos Knights and 10 of the new Chaos Warriors. With the new Vanguard box replacing the old Start Collecting, the Chaos Lord on Karkadrak is finally available as a stand-alone kit.
The Daemon Prince, 2nd classified with his promotion box in the best miniatures of 2022, is now available with several customization options to get him closer to your Chaos God of choice.
We have seen already Ogroids fighting for Chaos forces, we now have some background information about their story (they call themselves Goroans and their empire fell to Bonesplitterz) and some new heavy infantry for Slaves to Darkness in the form of the Theridons. The kit comes with 2-handed weapon or blade and shield option and with a musician and standard-bearer kit.
Eternus, Blade of the First Prince
Eternus was a Vanguard loyal to Archaon before renouncing him and be cast in the Cursed Skies where Be’lakor reforged him as his servant in his upcoming rebellion against the Everchosen. Alternatively the kit can be assembled as a generic Chaos Lord on Daemonic Mount.
Multi-part Chaos Knights
The new Chaos Knights are finally available with multi-part options that allow to assemble a Champion, a Standard-Bearer and a Musician.
Multi-part Chaos Warriors
Finally available with a multi-part sprue the Chaos Warriors can choose between murderous weapons or ensorcelled halberds. The kit contains also options for an Aspiring Champion, a musician and a standard bearer.
Chaos Chosen and Exalted Hero of Chaos re-sculpt
The Chaos Chosen are another kit to get a new sculpt in this Slaves to Darkness wave as well as the Exalted Hero of Chaos.
4 February 2023
Gloomspite Gitz release
Same cover, but new battletome for the Gitz that brings them to the third edition. Apart from the battletome and the usual on foot hero, they received also warscroll cards, a new vanguard box and a new unit of wolf-riding grots.
We have already seen the Snarlfang Riders in the Gitz warband Rippa’s Snarlfang few seasons back and now they got a full unit. They can be armed with spears or bows, but their profile allows you to use both, so it’s up to personal taste which one to use.
Squigboss with Gnasha-squig
The new little hero it is immediately an auto-include in all squig-based armies with his ability to buff one unit of squigs per turn with his stash of mushrooms.
Gloomspite Gitz Vanguard box
Their Start Collecting is now gone, replaced by a Vanguard box that contains a good mix of units with 1 Loonboss, 20 Stabbas that can be assembled as Shootas, 10 Squig Hoppers that can be assembled as Boingrot Bounders, and 3 Rockgut Troggoths.
Beasts of Chaos release with new Beastlord
The Beasts of Chaos also got a battletome for the third edition (although they were scoring quite well with a White Dwarf update) that really improves few units. Their Beastlord got an updated sculpt together with new more interesting rules.
Their Vanguard box, replacing the existing Start Collecting contains a Great Bray-Shaman, 3 Dragon Ogors, 10 Gors, 10 Bestigors and 10 Ungors (that can also be assembled as Ungor Raiders).
15 February 2023
Hachette Partworks launched its latest subscription magazine on Age of Sigmar called Stormbringer. While focussing on Stormcast Eternals and Kruleboyz, the subscription, currently available only in UK, will allow also to add other armies. As part of the releases there will be also an exclusive model representing a Stormcast Praetor-prime.
18 February 2023
The new Warcry box set pits the vampires of the Askurgan Trueblades, warrior-monks that sate their thirst hunting big beasts, and the Claws of Karanak, savage and bestial Khorne followers that worship the Flesh Hounds. Once again in Ghur, with a set full of Gnarloaks and bridges.
11 March 2023
Kharadron Overlords battletome, Vanguard box and accessories
Kharadron Overlords battletome was joined by warscroll cards, specific dice and a brand new Vanguard box that replaced the previous Start Collecting. The new box contains an Arkanaut Admiral, one Arkanaut Frigate, 3 Endrinriggers, which can also be built as Skywardens and 10 Arkanaut Company.
The battletome was joined by a new hero model: the Codewright. Able to use a heroic action to apply footnotes and amendments for the entire battle, it will surely pique the interest of the flying duardin fans.
Regiments of Renown
Six new mercenaries bands roam the Mortal Realms. They can only be used in the same Grand Alliance they belong to, but not in the same army. For example Veremord’s Shamblers can be used in any Death army except a Soulblight Gravelords one. The rules are available online for free.
The six regiments of renown are:
- Elthwyn’s Thorns – Order (Arch-Revenant, 5 Gossamid Archers)

Khorne new battletome and accessories
Khorne finally got a new battletome to launch the army in the third edition, accompanied by a new Vanguard box containing a Slaughterpriest, 10 Bloodreavers, 10 Blood Warriors and 3 Mighty Skullcrushers, warscroll cards and dice.
The battletome was joined by a new hero, the Realmgore Ritualist. She is able to carve blood runes on objectives or terrains that provide a once per battle bonus to friendly Khorne mortals in range.
Slaanesh battletome and accessories
If an army was in more dire need for a battletome, that was Slaanesh. Finally joins the fray in the third edition, together with a brand-new Vanguard box containing a Shardspeaker of Slaanesh, 3 Slaangor Fiendbloods, 10 Blissbarb Archers and 5 Slickblade Seekers which can alternatively be built as Blissbarb Seekers, plus warscroll cards and dice.
Lord of Hubris
As often happens nowadays, the battletome release is followed by a new hero. In this case the Lord of Hubris is a magnet for enemy attacks, with a ward of 4+ and forcing an enemy unit to attack him while conceding them strike-first as well.
15 April 2023
Ossiarch Bonereapers battletome and accessories
The Ossiarch Bonereapers long awaited battletome arrived, together with warscroll cards and a new hero: the Mortisan Ossifector, the one responsible to create most of Ossiarch constructs.

Seraphon Army Set

Warhammer Underworld Season 7: Wyrdhollow
Season 7 continues the storyline in Ghur, moving to another unexplored area of the Gnarlwoods: the Wyrdhollow. The starter set depicts a trio of Knights-Arcanum from the Valedictor Temple in search of magic trinkets against Ephilim, a Tzeentchian Sorceror followed by his cabal of demons.
The new season brings new rules, like Stun, Barge, Hex and Salvage.
20 May 2023

03 June 2023
Seraphon sculpt refresh was released together with a brand-new third edition battletome, available also in limited edition. Surprisingly no warscroll cards (from the army set) nor dice. The Slann Starmaster, Saurus Warriors and Raptadon kit (can be used for Chargers or Hunters) were also released for the first time in individual boxes.
Saurus Astrolith Bearer
The Saurus Astrolith Bearer is another re-sculpt with rules that seems to give him justice.
Spawn of Chotec and Sun Acolytes
Spawns of Chotec are salamanders hailing from the realm of Fire, Aqshy, revered as offspring of the Sun God himself. The Sun Acolytes are particularly heat-resistant Skinks tasked from birth to raise these powerful animals. This kit replaced the old Salamanders and Razordon hunting pack.
The Skink Starseer is a powerful magic caster, second only to the Slann, with an ability that gives a ward save to as many units as the current battle round.
The Aggradon Lancers are a new re-imagined sculpt of the Saurus Knighs (now retired) with 3 models.
Saurus Scar-Veteran on Aggradon
The Saurus Scar-Veteran on Aggradon is the proper leader of the new cavalry, also replacing an older kit.
Kroxigor and Kroxigor Warspawned
Another kit in dire need of re-sculpt was the Kroxigor, now available in two versions with the Warspawn (see image above) being the elite version.
10 June 2023

Harbingers, Dawnbringers Book I and regiments of renown
The Dawnbringers saga will see the development of two grand crusades departing from Hammerhal, one in the Realm of Life, Ghyran, and one in the Realm of Fire, Aqshy. One of this will fail and one will succeed, but we will not know until Book IV. The first book, Harbingers, will focus on the start of their journey and will be accompanied by one herald for each grand alliance.
The re-sculpt of Nurgle Harbinger of Decay is on the cover itself of the first book (a named character called Phlugoth the Miser) and was one of the oldest miniatures of that range in dire need of become a plastic kit. He was released in his own regiment of renown with 2 Pusgoyle Blightlords and 5 Putrid Blightkings.
For Death we have Sir Jerrion, a Marrowscroll Herald from the Flesh-Eater Courts, whose task is to recruit peasants to their glorious quests, while in reality to listen to his words mean to fall to the same madness that all Flesh-Eater are stuck in. He was released with a regiment of renown box with 20 Crypt Ghouls and 6 Crypt Horrors/Flayers with all sort of other assembly options for this kit.
For Order we have a new Fyreslayer hero, the Grimhold Exile (Fjori will be the named version detailed in the book). These warriors wield weapons imbued with a portion of the Zharrkhul, the flame ignited at the moment of Grimnir’s death. His regiment of renown contained 10 Vulkite Berzerkers and 10 Auric Hearthguard / Hearthguard Berzerkers.
The harbinger of Destruction is Braggit Big-Talka, a Rabble-Rowza from Gloomspite Gitz, attended by a swarm of bat-squigs whose duty is to incite his army to even greater deeds of destruction. He was released in his own regiment of renown box with the Gobbapalooza, a unit of 12 Squig Herd and a unit of 10 Squig Hoppers (that can be assembled as 2 units of 5 Boingrot Bounderz).

Trugg, the Troggoth King
Trugg is the latest Troggoth joining the Gloomspire roster. Awaken by the Alarielle rite, the arcane device stuck on his head activated giving him terrible migraines that forces him to pound anything magical to dust in hope to find relief. He comes with his own sub-faction, the Trugg’s Troggherd that reunites Gloomspite Gitz Troggoths.
Dawnbringers Book II introduces a vast array of new Ironjawz units, but their warscrolls are also available for free on Warhammer Community. The Maw-grunta, highlight of Warhammer Fest 2023, comes in three variations. one a hero (the Tuskboss) and two behemoth units that can become battleline (either Maw-grunta with Hakkin’ Crew or Maw-grunta Gouger).
The Ardboy Big Boss is called to lead the new Ardboyz kit that replace the existing one:
When the Brutes receive an embarrassing defeat, they may decide to strip their armour to concentrate on big two-handed weapons, forming the Brute Ragerz. And when they get too entangled in the Waaagh! energy to start vomiting green bile, the Weirdnob Shamans fix it by embedding bone and iron masks to their skull forming the ranks of Weirdbrute Wrekkaz.
Finally, Zoggrok Anvilsmasha is is a legendary Ironjawz smith followed by his loyal ambulatory squig anvil, Klonk.
