Dark Age of Sigmar, also known as AoS28 is a modeling and painting aesthetic that focuses on the grim, gritty, horrifying shadows of the Mortal Realms. The Dark Age of Sigmar is a story about the tortured hero who has been tainted by the dark magic they loathe, ravenous cultists prepared to give their lives to an uncaring god, or the villagers huddled in the darkness afraid of what might knock on their door.
The Dark Age of Sigmar is inspired by old renaissance paintings of revelers writhing before an onslaught of horned and bearded devils. The Dark Age of Sigmar can be found in Ray Harryhausen’s weird sculptures and uncanny special effects. Of course, the true father of the movement is John Blanche, the artist to whom Warhammer owes much of its grimdark appeal. Finally, the Dark Age of Sigmar is what you make of it, because it is above all else a collective art project for you to kitbash and paint and write and share your work with the world. So get out there, and make your own Dark Age of Sigmar.
This book contains a collection of battleplans, artefacts, campaign rules, quests, and fluff to help theme your battles and give them that little extra narrative push. Everything in this book is compatible with the Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Skirmish
rules. Basically every piece of this book is modular, so feel free to use as much or as little of it as you like. There is no wrong way to play Warhammer: Age of Sigmar!
