Games Workshop has revealed what’s going on pre-order next week. They’ll be on pre-order for two weeks maybe signaling a change in the process we’ve all come to expect!? It’s the second week in a row for that… On to what’s coming!
Warhammer Underworlds: Deathgorge takes you to the icy depths of Andtor, a network of frozen tunnels and caves that has entombed untold treasures – not to mention the souls of unlucky adventurers. There you’ll find both Idoneth Deepkin and daemons of Slaanesh. Deep in the boreal depths of the Deathgorge, Cyreni’s Razors and the Thricefold Discord are locked in a bitter battle.
The new core set for Warhammer Underworlds features two new warbands, two new Rivals decks, two universal Rivals decks, and everything else you need to play the ultimate competitive miniatures game.
Warhammer Underworlds: Starter Set is a great way for beginners to get into the game. It’ll be available from select retailers. It’s on sale from Saturday the 7th of October, and differs slightly from the current Warhammer Underworlds: Starter Set. It contains two warbands – Ironsoul’s Condemnors and the Sepulchral Guard – as well as their Rivals decks and everything else you need to play. The set is made for new players, running through how to play with an example game before you tackle a full game yourself.
Warcry: Hunter and Hunted is a new type of release for Warcry. The Wildercorps Hunters are currently following the ogors’ foul scent with the aid of their loyal Trailhounds – but unluckily for them, they’re perfectly snack-sized for the Gorgers. This new Warcry set features two warbands and an eternally hungry Mawpit.
Warcry: Kruleboyz Monsta-killaz kill, and capture these savage beasties to keep the stinking stables of the Beast-breaka tribes stocked. When out on the hunt, they employ tamed Gnarlwood Howlaz to flush out their quarry and dispatch surreptitious Klutcha-grots to steal the goodies.
Warcry: Vulkyn Flameseekers have no mercy to those who threaten to harm the free-roaming Magmadroths– though they won’t hesitate to put down any ‘droths that have become unstable.
Ravaged Lands: Scales of Talaxis is new scenery for Warcry. These ruins are dire reminders of the catastrophe that once struck this place, and still pulse with cosmic power, setting the mire around them alight with crackling arcane energy. They’re also just right for fighters to leap off and dramatically stab unwary foes.
You can use this set to build a new Warcry battlefield or expand your Gnarlwood Watchcamp with new pieces of ruined stonework and strangling briars, plus a double-sided gaming board, terrain cards to help you decide on a layout, and a Warcry token sheet.
Originally released for Warhammer Underworlds, these warbands all have rules in Warhammer Age of Sigmar, and are getting a standalone release in grey plastic without their cards. The warbands are the Gorechosen of Dromm, Hexbane’s Hunters, The Shadeborn, Blackpowder’s Buccaneers, Da Kunnin’ Krew, Skittershank’s Clawpack, The Exiled Dead, and Xandire’s Truthseekers.
White Dwarf 493 features new rules for a Warhammer Age of Sigmar narrative campaign, as well as new scenarios, and painting and gaming advice. The Warhammer 40,000 Tale of Four Warlords continues alongside Crusade rules for the Tome Keepers, while Warcry gets a dose of Courage and Cruelty with quests and artefacts for the Vulkyn Fyreslayers and Kruleboyz Monsta-killaz, and you can whet your appetite for the upcoming Legions Imperialis in an early battle report.
Kiroth Krakeneye comes to the Blood Bowl pitch. Krakeneye is a skilled runner who once per game can squirt Black Ink and fully remove one player’s tackle zone, leaving opposing players grasping at thin air as his sea dragon cloak flutters behind him.
From Black Library comes Realmslayer: Legend of The Doomseeker by David Guymer. A long time ago, Gotrek Gurnisson swore an oath to die in battle – but he somehow survived the death of his entire world. Not one to let failure get in his way, Gotrek arrives in the Mortal Realms with only two things on his mind – completing his oath, and trying to find out if his former friend Felix also survived the apocalypse.
Realmslayer: Legend of the Doomseeker is a novelisation of the audio drama which introduced Gotrek into the Age of Sigmar, and it will be available to pre-order in hardback, eBook, and audiobook format.
In the dark and dangerous streets of the hive city of Varangantua, law enforcers and vigilantes live alongside crime lords and gangers, and violence is only ever a moment away. Once a Killer is a paperback collection of eight short stories by Black Library authors including Nick Kyme, Denny Flowers, Jude Reid, and more. Each tale is packed full of bloodshed, corruption, and betrayal, and together, they paint a grisly picture of this teeming city of thieves.
The Lord of The End Times comes to audiobook. Only the last heroes of men, elves, and dwarfs stand between Archaon the Everchosen and the city of Middenheim, which is the key to his ultimate victory for Chaos. With things looking bleak, eyes turn to the unlikeliest of allies – Nagash, the Undying King.
You can find out how this tenuous alliance was resolved in Josh Reynolds’ The Lord of The End Times, which will be available to pre-order in audiobook next week for the first time.
