Realms of Ruin Roundup - August

Realms of Ruin Roundup - August

Hail Commanders!

The month of August has been as bold as July before it, with particular highlights being the launch of the Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin Pre-order and our dominating presence at gamescom 2023!

And who can forget!?

"The ancient Realmgates in Ghur have begun shimmering with a strange glow as they prepare to open. We’re pleased to announce that Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin will launch on 17th November 2023 and you can pre-order it now HERE!!!"

As the Kruleboyz so eloquently say, "nothing can stop us now!".

Let's dive a little deeper into the Realm of memories on this one and look back at where the month began...


"Discover more about Multiplayer and the Orruk Kruleboyz in the second video of our Faction Focus series."

With trickz n' kunnin', we took you on a journey to learn more about the conniving Kruleboyz and dive deeper into competitive cross-play action from the battlefield, in our first 'Faction Focus' video.

Orruk Kruleboyz Unit Spotlights

With the era then tainted with the stench of the Kruleboyz, came a selection of new units to scour.

  • GutrippazWielding an assortment of jagged spears and cunning tactics, the Gutrippaz are the mainstay of any Kruleboyz force.
  • Beast-Skewer KillbowThe idea of an orruk that can shoot straight seems like a contradiction, but there do exist those who operate portable ballistas known as Beast‑skewer Killbows who can not only bullseye a target but also slay several smaller enemies with a single shot.
  • Breaka-Boss On Mirebrute TroggothThe most vicious of Kruleboyz can bully the mighty Mirebrute into their service. 
  • KillabossThe brute strength of the Kruleboyz' Killaboss is measured only against their vicious cunning. These Orruk leaders will crush all who stand against them.

Crafting The Realm

Alongside the gruesome invitation to learn more about the Kruleboyz, came more insight into some of the exciting gameplay elements coming to Realms of Ruin, in two further instalments of our 'Crafting the Realm' series.

  • Control The BattlefieldsControlling the battlefield is key to seizing victory. Learn more about Arcane Conduits and how they can sway battle in your favour. 
  • ResourcesManaging your resources is imperative to your success on the battlefield. Learn more about 'Command' and how to best strategise your domination to seize victory over your enemy.



Sneaking into the mix also saw the reveal of some key characters you'll be set to face in Realms of Ruin.

Get a little closer...if you dare...

  • Dankfeer - Sadistic and narcissistic Killaboss of the Orruk Kruleboyz...
  • MurkfangA powerful Swampcalla Shaman, Murkfang focuses Dankfeer’s unrelenting ego and cruelty. 
  • Bludstew - The most “kunnin’” of all the Kruleboyz…or so he believes. 
  • Ripklaw - A crafty strategist, though this may be a slight embellishment of his own skills.
