Sunday Preview – Warcry Goes Underground

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

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!

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.

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!

The Reverie

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.

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.
