If you’re new to Warhammer Warcry or want to know what it’s all about, this post is for you. Here we’ll go over the basics of the game, what you need to get started, and some things that make Warcry unique.
So let’s jump in and take a look at Warhammer Warcry!
What is Warcry?
Warcry is a fast-paced skirmish miniatures game set in the Age of Sigmar universe. In Warcry, players take control of small warbands made up of incredibly detailed Citadel Miniatures. These warbands battle it out in brutal arena combat, using their wits, skill, and luck to come out on top.
The game is set in the fantasy world of the Warhammer universe. It features two warring factions, the Stormcast Eternals and the Forces of Chaos. The game aims to capture objectives, slay your enemies and emerge victorious!
Warcry is played with miniatures called “minis” for short. Minis are plastic or metal figurines representing the game’s various troops and characters. Each player assembles an army of minis from their collection (or purchases one ready-made) and creates a battle plan with their opponent before battle commences.
The Setting of the Game
The Warhammer Warcry game is set in the Age of Sigmar when the forces of Chaos have been defeated, and the world has been plunged into an age of peace. However, this age of peace is threatened by a new force: the Skaven. The Skaven are a race of rat-men who dwell in the shadows, plotting to overthrow the humans and take over the world.
The Best Way to Learn Warcry
The best way to learn Warcry is by playing it. There is no substitute for experience.
However, you can do a few things to give yourself a leg up:
- Read the rulebook thoroughly.
- Watch videos and streams of people playing Warcry.
- Find someone who knows how to play and ask them to teach you.
- Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
Use Warhammer Models in Warcry
Any model from the Age of Sigmar range can be used in Warcry. However, there are some caveats:
- Your models must be assembled, apply decals, and painted according to the Warhammer Age of Sigmar rules.
- You will need to use the appropriate Warscrolls for your models. These can be found in the Warhammer Age of Sigmar rulebook or online.
- Keep in mind that Warcry is designed for smaller-scale battles than Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
As such, you may consider using only a portion of your army.
The Warhammer Warcry game pits players against each other in fierce battles using miniatures. The game can be played with two players but is best played with four. Each player takes control of a Warband, which comprises six models. The warbands can be of any race or faction but must be led by a hero.
The game is played on a square board divided into nine squares. Each square represents an area of the battlefield. The battlefield is littered with terrain, which can be used to cover your Warband from enemy fire or to provide cover for your charges.
The Goal of the Game
The game’s goal is to score more victory points than your opponent. Victory points are earned by completing objectives, such as holding certain battlefield areas or slaying enemy models. The first player to reach ten victory points wins the game.
