Games Workshop Pre-Order Preview: Black Library and Warhammer Heroes Series 4
It’s an intriguing light week for next week’s Games Workshop pre-orders with multiple releases from Black Library being the highlight.
Creed: Ashes of Cadia picks up decades since the Fall of Cadia. Ursula Creed heads to the shattered remains of the Cadian homeworld, a broken hellscape of deadly secrets. The book by Jude Reid will be available as a regular hardback, eBook, and audiobook formats as well as a fantastic Special Edition.
The Special Edition is embossed with a cloth cover with shining gold foil and includes the extra short story Creed: Chains of Command. Each of the 1,750 limited copies is individually numbered and signed by the author.
Valdor: Birth of the Imperium by Chris Wraight takes us to the beginning of the Unification Wars, where the warlords of Old Terra have fallen and questions on the fate of the Thunder Warriors must be answered. Change rarely comes bloodlessly in the 31st Millennium, and Valdor has a web of intrigue to navigate if the nascent Imperium is to claim its destiny among the stars.
Blood of the Emperor is an anthology of short stories from Graham McNeill, Nick Kyme, David Guymer, Andy Clark, Mike Brooks, and Chris Wraight each taking on one of the Primarchs. It’s getting an audiobook release.
The Horus Heresy Collection expands in French and German for the first time. Collection X includes the novels Scars by Chris Wraight, Vengeful Spirit by Graham McNeill, and The Damnation of Pythos by David Annandale, while Sammelband XI collects Legacies of Betrayal and War Without End – each a compilation of many separate short stories – and Deathfire by Nick Kyme into one convenient place. Both are getting a hardbook and eBook edition.
Warhammer Heroes Series 4 is getting a release in the United States, Germany, Japan, China, and Australia but you won’t be able to get it from the Games Workshop webstore. Series 4 comprises seven new miniatures from a variety of Space Marine squads, featuring Intercessors, an Assault Intercessor, a Heavy Intercessor, an Eliminator, and a Captain.
Unlike the previous series, this one is focused on Kill Team as a unique faction. Each figure comes with a Kill Team datacard with full rules and a ploy for the team to use. All you need is six of the seven operatives to start playing the game!
Dubbed Strike Force Justian, it’s fully Matched Play legal and designed for new players to easily start playing.
White Dwarf 492 shows off the new Terminators, battleplans for four-player games of Warhammer: Age of Sigmar and more.
