What is Warhammer: Age of Sigmar?
Warhammer: Age of Sigmar (often abbreviated as Age of Sigmar or AoS) is a fantasy, tabletop miniature wargame from Games-Workshop which simulates battles between armies of miniature plastic figurines. Games are typically played with two players on a relatively flat surface such as a dining table, bespoke gaming table, or an area of floor. The playing area is often decorated with models and materials representing buildings and terrain. Players take turns selecting their models and making actions such as moving, charging, shooting ranged weapons, fighting and casting magical spells, the outcomes of which are generally determined by dice rolls.

Aside from gaming, a large part of Age of Sigmar is dedicated to the hobby of collecting, assembling and painting said miniature figurines.

Whereas some other wargames recreate historical warfare, Warhammer Age of Sigmar has a fantasy theme, heavily inspired by the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien and Michael Moorcock. The armies fight with medieval-era weaponry and magical spells, and the warriors are a mixture of humans and fantasy creatures such as Elves, Dwarves, and Orks (the races of Warcraft look and act the way they do because of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, the pre-cursor to Age of Sigmar).
