Warriors of the storm

The Stormcast Eternals are Sigmar’s most powerful warriors, his wrath made manifest and his final gambit against the dark forces of Chaos. Once mortal heroes, they were plucked from the devastation of countless battlefields by Sigmar and reforged both in body and mind. They are the ultimate warriors, pure of heart, strong of arm, clad in unalloyed sigmarite and, above all else, immortal.

The most common of all Stormcast Eternals are the Liberators, every one of them a mighty warrior even before their reforging. The Warhammer Age of Sigmar starter set includes 10 of these fearsome warriors. It is their duty – one they undertake with grim satisfaction – to lay low the commanders of the enemy army with their mighty warhammers before crushing them underfoot.

Liberators are led into battle by Liberator-Primes who can be recognised by the plumes on their helms and leonine pauldrons. Liberators are led into battle by Liberator-Primes who can be recognised by the plumes on their helms and leonine pauldrons.
The starter set also includes three Prosecutors, the winged heralds of Sigmar’s vengeance. Armed with a pair of crackling celestial hammers, they descend from the sky on rays of light to smite Sigmar’s foes.

In less than a week’s time many of you will be painting these incredible miniatures, so Duncan Rhodes – Sigmar’s chosen painter – has created a series of painting videos to show you how:

Fighting alongside the Liberators and the Prosecutors are the Retributors. Wreathed in lightning, they can crush several foes with a swing of their lightning hammers, every impact like a peal of thunder.

There are three of these mighty warriors in the Warhammer Age of Sigmar starter set and one of the missions in the book pitches them against a horde of Khorne Bloodreavers.

Also in the starter set is a Lord-Relictor. These sinister figures safeguard the souls of the Stormcast Eternals and ensure that when they ‘die’ their souls are kept from the underworlds.

The story presented in the Warhammer Age of Sigmar starter set features a Lord-Relictor known as Ionus Cryptborn, though you can, of course, paint the model to represent a Lord-Relictor of your own creation.

One video not enough for you today? Here’s a second showing you how to paint the Retributors and the Lord-Relictor.
