If you’re unfamiliar with Warhammer: Age o Sigmar, it’s the newest incarnation of the Warhammer franchise launched by Games Workshop in 2015 after basically destroying the fan-favorite Old World of the popular tabletop miniature wargame and throwing decades of lore and progression into the recycle bin. Good job there.
