With a wide array of Warhammer starter sets and high-value collection packs, you can kickstart or expand and Warhammer army! We’ll make sure you’re ready to join the Warhammer community!
Warhammer 40,000 (40k) is the original wargame, set in a dark fantasy future filled with space travel and incredible technology. Age of Sigmar (AoS) was released in 2015 and has a more traditional fantasy aesthetic, with more focus on melee combat and far less firearms.
It’s up to you! Find the models that you like best! Both games are similar enough to appeal to the same hobby, but different enough to justify playing both. With new rules and editions being released frequently, the games and the ways they are played are evolving all the time. There’s never been a better time to join the hobby!
Not at all! The Warhammer community is very accepting of new hobbyists and are always happy to help. While the rules might seem intimidating when you first look, playing the game is quite easy, especially if you have someone to help you learn. You’ll find both Warhammer 40K and Age of Sigmar easy to pick up, but with plenty of depth for you to master.
There’s a bunch of ways! Some people like to start by finding a faction they like the look of, some people like to learn about the deep lore and background to pick an army that way. Otherwise, there are always starter sets available for purchase that provide fantastic value compared to other products in the Warhammer range and are good for getting you into the hobby, or even splitting with a friend so you can learn together.
It depends how much you want to spend! Different faction have different prices, and there are multiple modes of play requiring different sized armies. Generally, a starter set is a good investment, as it gives you a bunch of models for a lower price, so you can experience building and painting for the first time. When you’re ready to step it up, you can build up your army over time with the Combat Patrol and Start Collecting! boxes, or picking specific unit packs to fill in any gaps.
Absolutely! The latest edition of Warhammer 40k offers a range of kits that provide you with models for two separate factions, generally enough miniatures to test out the game. If you’re interested in painting, there are sets available that include paints, brushes, and a few models to get you started. Otherwise, the larger sets can provide you and a friend the models and rules you need to play your first game from scratch!
It doesn’t have to be! There are smaller ‘skirmish’ game modes such as Kill Team or Underworlds that let you try out the game in a more simplified version. Meaning you can try out the hobby with a lower cost and time investment than ever before.
Which ever one suits you best. You can check out the look of each of the faction to find one you like best, or you can read the rules and build the most powerful team you can imagine! Generally, any starter set is a good place to start. Start Collecting! or Combat Patrol boxes are excellent value for expanding your team or starting a new army. Underworld products are a stand-alone game, but the rules and models can be included in full Age of Sigmar games.
It depends on the player! The easier game to play will always be the one you’re more interested in. Both games are similar but have different play styles. While some might consider Age of Sigmar easier, there are just as many who find 40k to be their preferred game.
Warhammer Fantasy is an older version of Warhammer that eventually ended with Age of Sigmar taking its place in 2015. Much of Warhammer Fantasy still exists in AoS, including entire armies and units.
In some cases, yes! While most of 40k and AoS remain separate, there is a few factions that can cross over between the games. Some players prefer to collect these armies as they can play both games with a single army. Notably, the Chaos Gods exist in both games, meaning many units from the AoS factions; Blades of Khorne, Hedonites of Slaanesh, Maggotkin of Nurgle, and Disciples of Tzeentch, can be played in Warhammer 40k under the Chaos Daemons faction.
