Games Workshop will soon be releasing Storm of Magic a Warhammer Fantasy expansion that focuses on monsters and magic.Someone just shared a link on the Battle Reporter Facebook group. I don't have a lot of time tonight to investigate further so I'll just share the pics and give a brief round up.
The photos look as though they are from White Dwarf (due to be released soon for July 2011) and they were posted on Bugman's Brewery which got them in turn from Warseer so I recommend you check those out for more info. It looks like the emphasis is on big magic ("powerful Cataclysm spells" and a dark elf sorceress on a whirlwind) and big monsters, so far I've seen a Black Dragon, a Cockatrice, what I presume is a Chimera and maybe a Manticore.
There is also mention of cantrips (usually used to mean minor spells in role playing), ancestor runes (?) and quite a bit of focus on terrain and scenery which looks as though it could be an extension of the current mysterious terrain concept (named, I think, Arcane Fulcrums). The new scenery does look pretty hot, I like it a lot (see Dreadfire Portal, Eternity Stair and some kind of Scull throne below). It looks like we might be seeing a few new spell-casting miniatures too :)
It could be a good Fantasy Battle White Dwarf month !
Anyway, here you go... (images courtesy of Warseer)
