Invoke Sigmar's Wrath to Smite Your Foes 27
Faith of Sigmar, a Print on Demand expansion for WFRP, is now available

The life of a priest of Sigmar is a life of war – an endless war waged against the Empire’s many foes.
    –Tome of Blessings

Priests of Sigmar, rejoice! Your prayers have been answered. The Empire’s patron deity has not forgotten his people in their time of greatest need. While Beastmen and bands of Chaos marauders threaten the Empire’s borders, cultists summon daemons, foment rebellion, and sow corruption within its cities. Against these threats, devout Sigmarites take arms, lifting their warhammers and preparing for battle, and Sigmar grants them new powers to smite their foes.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce that Faith of Sigmar, a Print on Demand supplement for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, is now available through our webstore to bolster your campaign and the Empire.

Sigmar’s wroth!

Though Sigmar is not renowned as a god of prophecy, the Empire’s commoners tend to find omens of his will everywhere they turn. So synonymous with the Empire is Sigmar, that commoners find his prophecies in virtually every aspect of mundane life–the overcast sky, a nagging injury, or the sound of a hammer hitting an anvil. Amidst so much confusion, it becomes difficult to read true signs, but some signs now show so clearly as to be unmistakeable. Sigmar’s Empire stands threatened, and he is wroth!

Faith of Sigmar introduces fifteen new blessings and two new items full of righteous wrath!

Whether you’re confronting your first heretic or preparing to answer the Hero’s Call in epic battle, Faith of Sigmar gives your Sigmarite new ways to bolster your allies, inflame their passions, and convey your hatred of your enemies into powerful and decisive action. The fifteen blessings in Faith of Sigmar run from Rank 1 to Rank 5, and its two new items easily mark their bearer as one of Sigmar’s most favoured.

What is Print on Demand?

Originally debuted with our announcement of expansions for Space Hulk – Death Angel: The Card Game, Print on Demand is an exciting new process that allows Fantasy Flight Games to produce professionally finished cards on a made-to-order basis, which opens up new opportunities for expanding existing games.

This process (not to be confused with Print and Play), results in smaller print runs of professionally manufactured products, allowing publishers to provide fans with content that would otherwise not be commercially viable. If you’re a retailer interested in carrying our Print on Demand products, visit our Professional Zone website to learn more.

Why Print on Demand instead of a traditional product?

These Print on Demand products are not a substitute for normal Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay releases. Instead, we use this unique form of direct manufacturing to augment our regular support for the game. Print on Demand enables us to provide special content that otherwise would likely not have seen the light of day. This is the awesome proposition of the Print on Demand format, and we're excited it enables us to provide players with cool material.

Order yours today

Whether your priest invokes just one new blessing from Faith of Sigmar, or you aspire to use them all, Faith of Sigmar gives you exciting new ways to enjoy Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. Learn more from our detailed description page, or place your order through our webstore. Then, assail your foes with the might of Sigmar’s wrath!

Note: Due to variations in the printing process, cards from Print on Demand expansions will be subtly different in appearance and texture from base game cards.

Smite your foes with the Faith of Sigmar!

How's this for totally out the blue, awesome news!

My wallet is cringing at the thought, because I'm CLEARLY gonna be buying these when they hit the shores of the UK, but I'm all over it like white on rice.

I would LOVE them to continue this vain - as mentioned below, it's a good way of providing niche products.  A generic equipment set would be great in my opinion for starters!  :)

I wonder if it's possible to do a PoD (or Cast on Demand?) coin set....

I want more runes, more Engineer and Runesmith Action Cards and more Dwarf Careers! And the POd give the opportunity to produce niche stuff without a box.

GIMME MORE POD DWARFS!!!!

Thanks for replying Christian. Though you know for obsessive completists like me all new material is must-have material. :) Who would have a Priest of Sigmar without wanting these extra abilities?

Anyway, glad to hear that regular WFRP releases and support are still a priority! Cheers.

Universalhead,

The WFRP POD products are not a substitute for regular WFRP releases. Instead, we use this unique form of direct manufacturing to augment our regular support for the game. POD's feasibly enables us to provide special content that otherwise would likely not have seen the light of day. This is the awesome proposition of the POD format, and we're excited it enables us to provide players with cool material.

In fact, I've posted the above paragraph into the actual article, as it's a point that should be made broadly. Thanks for the well-worded objection, I hope my answer allays your concern.

Cheers,

Christian

Thumbs up from me, as I've posted more detailed reasons for in a discussion thread on WFRP forum.

@bigty:

I have the Death Angel PoD cards and the subtle difference they speak about is that the PoD cards don't have the 'linen' look.  They're the same size/shape/colors.  You just can tell them apart from the base cards.

This isn't a problem when the look of the cards isn't important (ie, you're not shuffling the cards together).

I don't understand all the negative feedback this new format is getting. I for one am stoked about WH products being available via POD. If they decide to continue to release cards in small departmentalized batches like Faith, or Spell School, or any other particular theme, that's fantastic. At $7 for around 20 new cards, I don't see how this is detrimental to cost. If you only need additional Bright Order spells, then just buy that particular pack, etc.

Here's to hoping that locations, melee and ranged, and support actions all get the same treatment.

I'm not sure what to make of this:

 

Note: Due to variations in the printing process, cards from Print on Demand expansions will be subtly different in appearance and texture from base game cards.

 

 

 

 

I'm also kind of torn on this.  I'm hoping eventually these POD things would get boxed up and sold as a regular, boxed, supplement at least.

I personally don't think that POD is appropriate for WFRP. POD for boardgames maybe, but not RPGs. Please give us proper WFRP supplements, not trickles of new cards that are expensive and difficult to get overseas. I'm a long-term WFRP supporter, but sadly I'm really disappointed with this approach to getting us new material.

Well Beren, for me it's the opposite.

The card quality is fine. Pretty much in line with some boxed games.

The fact that it's compartmentalized by faith/order is not a bad thing.  I'd rather get those than pay for another $50 boxed set for spells and blessings that won't get used. Economically, this works for me and FFG.

There are a few on line retailers that stock the print on demand at a reduced price, making it an even better deal.
