Warhammer Age of Sigmar unleashes the Endless Spells with Forbidden Power and Malign Sorcery!
With the release of Warhammer Age of Sigmar Third Edition and the General’s Handbook we saw new stats for our favorite Endless Spells, followed by a rerelease of Forbidden Power and Malign Sorcery! Prior to this release my only experience with Game Workshop’s Endless Spells was simply knowing they existed and to remedy that issue our friends at Games Workshop supplied us review copies of both sets. After the Necroquake ravaged the lands of the Eight Realms, summoned magics we unleashed and went out of control. These spells can be summoned to help lead you to victory but some may hurt you just as much as your enemies.
The beauty of the Malign Sorcery box is that these Endless Spells are not specific to any one Grand Alliance or army. The trick will be to properly gauge timing and placement of your spell to maximize it’s effects and limit the damage you receive yourself. You have a couple options when controlling these spells, you can send them towards your target, send them off the board or try to dispel them. There are variations that are army specific like the Stormcast Eternals or Daughter’s of Khaine for example.
I used the spells for the first and second time recently. The first attempt the Malevolent Maelstrom was reversed by my son and ravaged my front lines. Our second match I used Suffocating Gravetide and drove it off the map before he could hit me with it again. These spells added a whole new dynamic to our games that I’ve never experienced prior and they were a hell of a lot of fun, even when they killed my own troops. Using the links above you can order your own set of each- Malign Sorcery is the more universal of the two and Forbidden Power’s models look amazing, you can even use some of the pieces to kit bash an evil bone bridge as well (I’m trying to justify a second set for this reason alone).
