Hexbane’s Hunters enter the Nethermaze of Warhammer Underworlds

The Nethermaze calls out to warbands from across the Mortal Realms. Hexbane’s Hunters is a band of Witch Hunters led by Haskel Hexbane. They’ve been commanded by the clandestine Order of Azyr to bring the cleansing fires of justice to the abyssal heart of the Nethermaze.

The warband purges the heretics with guns, axes, crossbows, and their faithful hounds. Fast, deadly, and determined, they’re also fragile, so keep your distance!

The set comes with a complete Rivals deck that can be used out of the box or combined with other cards to construct your own deck.

Goliath Gangers go Vroom in Necromunda

Games Workshop has revealed a new way for Goliath gangers to get across the Ash Wastes of Necromunda.

The Goliath Mauler is a light vehicle for the musclebound gang to zoom around the wasteland. Like the gang, these vehicles lean toward raw power over maneuverability and that includes a ram!

It’s a mean machine to smash the enemy with and take on the other vehicles, bugs, and armor of the Ash Wastes.

And… can anyone say Warhammer 40K Ork bike conversions?

The High Clone Executor comes to Para Bellum’s Conquest with an Updated Sculpt

Ignored and often resented, High Clone Executors provide a critical role that not even the most arrogant of the Lineage Highborn can deny: direct battlefield experience and a core of professional officers to lead the troops. While Biomancers and Pheromancers might turn the soldiers into ravening automata and Lineage Highborn might be unstoppable on the field, it is the High Clone Executors who time and again deliver victories across a hundred different battlefields.

In order to advance through the ranks, Executors must have proven and keep proving their ability time and again, both on the field of battle and without. They must secure chances at proving their capacity, provide victory on the battlefield and be able to claim credit for that victory, always vying against backstabbing colleagues, jealous superiors, and ruthlessly demanding masters. The result is that should one encounter a High Clone Executor leading an enemy force, he should know he is facing a ruthlessly competent individual who has no compunctions or limitations on the pursuit of victory.
