Start Competing! Your Guide to Getting Better at Warhammer Age of Sigmar

Age of Sigmar Logo

Welcome to Start Competing! Age of Sigmar Edition, our series of useful information and resources for starting and improving your Age of Sigmar (AoS) play. This series is intended for everyone, whether you’re brand new to AoS and wondering how and where to start, a former Warhammer Fantasy Battles player who left after the “World that Was”, wasn’t, and has since come back to see what all the fuss is about, or a pro who’s looking at how to start a new faction/extend their Grand Alliance.

As with the excellent sister Start Competing! 40k edition, this is continuing work in development, so as we write more, more will appear here. Keep checking back for more Sigmar goodness (or Chaos, Destruction and Death).

Warning: At this time, the guides are from 2nd edition. While some information is still useful a lot of it is out of date. As they are updated we will mark them appropriately.
