The final ‘Faction Focus’ trailer for Frontier Developments’ upcoming RTS, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin has revealed that the Disciples of Tzeentch are the fourth faction in the game. The game is set to launch on 17th November, 2023, and has built strong anticipation.
The Disciples of Tzeentch are eldritch warriors and masters of the mystical arts. They use magic and cunning to bend the Mortal Realms to their own ends. In Realms of Ruin, this faction is fully playable in Conquest Mode and multiplayer, while playing a small but vital role in the single-player campaign.
Disciples of Tzeentch
The army of Chaos’ strengths lie in powerful ranged units and the ability to induce status effects in their enemies. While unlocking the full power of the Disciples of Tzeentch on the battlefield isn’t cheap, it’s worth it for their late game prowess and deadly magic attacks. Not to mention the extraordinary spectacle they bring to each skirmish in Realms of Ruin.
Units spotlighted in the trailer include luminescent Pink Horrors, who hurl blasts of unnatural fire across the battlefield. They split into new forms as they are defeated by the enemy, turning into Blue Horrors. These are smaller ranged units. And when they’re done, Brimstone Horrors appear. These explode on nearby enemies.
Tzaangor Skyfires soar over the battlefield, gifted with the ability to see into the future, allowing them to expose hidden and oncoming enemy threats. The greatest of Tzeentch’s daemons, meanwhile, the Lord of Change, shimmers with raw magic. This demon is capable of opening a gateway to Chaos and able to turn the tide of battle single-handedly.

The Disciples of Tzeentch complete the full roster of factions coming to Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin at launch, alongside the previously announced Stormcast Eternals, Orruk Kruleboyz and Nighthaunt. Note that this is ‘at launch’, meaning that we can assume additional factions will be added as post-launch DLC.
