Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground debuts its playable factions

Crashing headlong into the tabletop’s new Age of Sigmar is the latest Warhammer video game. Meet Storm Ground’s 3 playable factions.

Strategic Storm

As we’ve mentioned in past weeks, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground isn’t your typical strategy game set in the Olde World. Yes, there’s turn-based strategy gameplay, but the setting itself is a new one.

The game takes place in the new era for the tabletop war-game. That of course, is the Age of Sigmar. And on top of that, it also features three playable factions that don’t even sound like they’re from the world of Warhammer.

Nevertheless, the Stormcast Eternals, Nighthaunt, and Maggotkin definitely hail from Games Workshop’s dungeons. Thanks to a series of new videos just out, you can see all of them in action.

You’ll also get a chance to see some more of the gameplay for this turn-based title, as well as an extended taste of its visuals. And being that this is one game that’s looking pretty terrific, that’s a good thing indeed.

The Eternals, Storm Ground’s sturdiest warriors, are worthy of their name. Banding together in tight formations around their hero allows them to withstand tons of damage and shine in long battles.

Nighthaunts, on the other hand, are much more fragile, relying on debuffs to weaken their enemies and summoning units to overwhelm them.

Last, but not least, the Maggotkin compensate their generally sluggish movement with an unrivaled ability to control the battlefield, turning hex tiles into dangerous hazard zones that inflict debilitating effects on the toughest of enemies with ease.
