As well as all that, there are some cool new minis for each of the grand alliances (Order, Chaos, Death and Destruction) called Harbingers and a brilliant looking campaign book if you want to add some of the special Malign Portents rules into your games.
'The Stormhosts change the fate of the realms with each thunderous strike. Yet next to the innumerable minions of darkness, we are few indeed. We cannot fail, nor lose our way, for we must shape the future with hammer, blade and bolt.'
