Best Start Collecting Age of Sigmar Set: Anvilgard
- Start Collecting! Anvilgard gives you a selection of Scourge Privateers with which to raid the Mortal Realms
The Anvilgard is one of the most effective AoS starter kits for 2 units: the Kharibdyss and the Black Ark Corsair troops. Overall, it has 13 Citadel miniatures: 1 Black Ark Fleetmaster HQ, 10 Black Ark Corsair troops, 1 Scourgerunner Chariot and 1 Kharibdyss. The HQ is decent enough in the field as support but the whole set can fight well even without an HQ. The Kharibdyss and Black Ark Corsairs are powerful enough to bring you to victory but the Scourgerunner Chariot is also a good distraction with cheap unit points. The design of the whole set is amazing especially the Kharibdyss. $100 for this is worth buying. The whole set has total points of 430.

Best Start Collecting Age of Sigmar Set with High Starting Points: Fyreslayers
- For use in the Warhammer Age of Sigmar miniature table top game
- Models supplied unpainted and require assembly. Scenery, glue and paint not included.
If you want to lead a pack of angry dwarves with high points, Fyreslayers are a good start. It has 13 Citadel miniatures: 1 Auric Runefather on Magmadroth, 1 Auric Runesmite, 1 Auric Runeson, and 10 Vulkite Berzerkers. Not only are they a powerful bunch but the fiery details are amazing – perhaps arguably one of the best-looking Start Collecting starter kits ever made. The units you should look out for are the HQ Auric Runefather on Margmadroth where you can swap the rider with another infantry if you know how to handle him.

What I Would Buy
Of the three the Anvilgard is our most recommended for the best Start Collecting Age of Sigmar set, but the Daemons of Tzeentch and Fyreslayers are equally good too depending on how you want to play your game.
That depends. Some may start as low as 260 while others may peak at more than 600 points.
It is the first edition since its launch in 2015.
It is considered to be the better version over the original Warhammer Fantasy but some other players prefer the older one.
According to an answer in Quora, “The main two reasons for why Games Workshop killed off Warhammer Fantasy Battle were first due to the fact that people were buying more models and paying more attention to Space Marines and Warhammer 40k as a whole.”
Most Age of Sigmar miniatures cost around $95 to $150 depending on the quality of the miniatures in terms of combat effectiveness and points value.
