Embargo: None, update released as of 21/08/19

Leamington Spa, UK - Pixel Toys are excited to announce version 1.8 of Age of Sigmar: Realm War. This update brings two new units to your Warband, alongside a brand new events system which includes two fresh event types.

The first new unit, Warplock Jazzails, are Skaven snipers which cause devastating long-range damage with their Warplocks. Fighting as a pack, they bombard their enemies with deadly piercing shots, dealing damage to multiple targets.

The second new unit, Warp-Grinders, are a pair of Skaven who operate a Warp-Grinder, drilling tunnels beneath the ground before emerging through the surface, surprise attacking enemy structures.

Alongside these two new units, version 1.8 of Realm War includes a whole new event system with two new event types. The first of these events types, Grand Alliance Events, has players compete with specific alliance troops, for increasingly valuable rewards, by climbing our new ladder ranking system.

The second new event type, Spotlight Events, will help showcase brand new units we introduce to the game and allow players to get familiar with their playstyle before adding them to their Warband.

Both these new event types will use fixed decks, so competing players will have even Warbands.

Players can keep up with announcements for any future updates on our Facebook and Twitter
