The Warhammer-community team brings us a preview of what’s coming out in the GW hobby!
It’s time to reveal all the details of next week’s exciting pre-order releases, articles, and Warhammer TV shows! First up, let’s get an overview of what you can look forward to.
That’s right – Warcry’s going underground! Let’s kick things off by heading over to the Eightpoints to catch the latest scoop.
Warcry: Catacombs is a stunning new core set that allows you to battle in the underground dungeons of Varanthax’s Maw, deep beneath the Skullpike Mountains – get ready for the Warhammer-iest game of ‘the floor is lava’ ever! The ancient, trap-filled dungeons stretch on and on, populated by monsters and blood-hungry savages, so muster your warbands and prepare to venture into the abyssal darkness…
In addition to everything you need to play – including a core rulebook, dice, terrain, and a double-sided, fold-out card gameboard – the set includes two warbands: the Khainite Shadowstalkers and the Scions of the Flame! The Shadowstalkers are soul-bound to Morathi and imbued with incredible powers that make them a threat unlike any other. After all, it’s hard to escape the Shadowstalkers when they can blink between shadows in an instant and command your own reflection to stab you in the back!
Meanwhile, the Scions of the Flame are Aqshy-obsessed fanatics in service of Archaon, who they believe will scour the Mortal Realms clean in a fiery apocalypse. If Warhammer Age of Sigmar is your jam as well, the box even includes warscrolls for using the new warbands in larger-scale battles too!
Warcry: Catacombs Board Pack
If you want to mix it up by adding some variety to your surroundings, you can also pick up this supplementary board pack which features two more double-sided gameboards to use, each depicting a unique location – the Lair of the Sphiranx, Temple of Nagendra, Cinder Warrens, and the Halls of Velorum.
Warcry Starter Sets
Four other Warhammer Age of Sigmar factions will also be getting Warcry starter sets. These boxes come with everything you need to start a ruthless warband with your favourite faction, from the miniatures themselves to all the Grand Alliance tokens and ability cards you’ll need.
Warcry Carry Case
Carry your warband in style with this red, hardened-foam carry case with the Warcry symbol emblazoned on its side. The Citadel squad foam tray inside can safely store up to 36 miniatures – more than enough to transport a warband or two to their battlefield destination!
Make sure your warriors have some flaming torches at the ready – it’s gonna be dark in the catacombs!
It’s just as dark in the underhive, too, so let’s check out what the (very near) future holds for Necromunda.
House of Iron
It’s time for House Orlock to rise up! Another glorious supplement for Necromunda is on its way – House of Iron. This book focuses on the scions of House Orlock, expanding upon their long history with exciting new lore and introducing thematic rules – including brand-new fighters, wargear, Gang Tactics, and more – that capture the methods they use to control their territory in the underhive. As usual, this book will be available in hardback or ePub format.
Orlock Dice and Tactics Cards
If you serve the House of Iron, you can show your allegiance with a set of Orlock dice that bear its mark in place of the 6. Similarly, a set of Gang Tactics cards will make it easy to keep track of the sneaky tricks at your disposal as you battle rival gangs.
Orlock Arms Masters and Wreckers
This expansion also comes alongside brand-new models for your Orlock gang, from tooled-up Arms Masters and their accompanying Cyber-Mastiffs to jetpack-wearing Wreckers eager for thrilling vertical plays in the underhive! Check out our rules preview to see how much fun they’ll be to use!
Zone Mortalis: Gang Stronghold
Home is where the gang is! Protect your hard-won turf with this fully modular terrain kit for Necromunda. Designed to work seamlessly with the Zone Mortalis range, you can either use it to expand your existing collection or create your own bespoke gang HQ that will really show your rivals you mean business. It even comes complete with new rules to help defend your turf!
It’s time to move from gang wars to engine wars, with Adeptus Titanicus.
Crucible of Retribution
Prepare to wage war in the Belt of Iron in a new Adeptus Titanicus expansion, Crucible of Retribution. This narrative expansion explores the war for the Belt of Iron and brings a plethora of new scenarios and rules for Adeptus Titanicus players, including the famous Legio Ignatum. This unmissable expansion will be available in hardback and ePub formats.
Adeptus Titanicus: Open Engine War Card Pack
Get ready for engine war in no time with this handy pack of cards that enables you to choose or randomly generate your Deployment Map, Primary and Secondary Objectives, as well as any Planetary and Battlefield Effects in a matter of moments. You need never play the same mission twice!
Fans of the Horus Heresy can also look forward to some hotly anticipated reinforcements for the Dark Angels Legion…
Dark Angels Legion Deathwing Companions
The finest warriors of the Deathwing join the fray. If you wield the I Legion in battle, you’ll soon be able to recruit your own Companions for your army. Not only will they keep your valuable Characters alive at all costs, but they’re incredible models to paint, too!
These mighty warriors of the Deathwing will be available to pre-order from Forge World this Friday. But regardless of whether or not you’re a fan of the Dark Angels, Black Library have some fresh offerings this week, including a novel about one of the I Legion’s most controversial characters…
Luther: First of the Fallen
Did he fall to Chaos? Is he little more than a glorified renegade? Perhaps the most burning question is… was he right? This limited edition novel by Gav Thorpe poses these questions and more, but you’ll have to read it for yourself if you seek the answers!
Horror returns to Black Library in the form of The Reverie by Peter Fehervari – just in time for Halloween! The novel weaves a complex tale in Fehervari’s inimitable style and delves deeper into the transhuman psyche of the Space Marines than ever before.
Inferno! Volume 5
In the next instalment of the action-packed short fiction anthology, you’ll discover new tales from across the Mortal Realms and the grim darkness of the far future.
And, with all the excitement that’s coming with the launch of Warcry’s new core set, it would be rude not to mention the action-packed tie-in novel, Warcry: Catacombs – Blood of the Everchosen, which reveals much more about the setting as the story unfolds.
Next Week on Warhammer Community
Over the coming days, we’ll have loads of great articles for you on warhammer-community.com, including the next instalment of Metawatch!
Similarly, Warhammer TV has another packed week of live shows for you to tune into while you paint – here’s the upcoming schedule.
