Games Workshop Pre-Order Preview: Dive into the Nethermaze with Warhammer Underworlds
This feels like a really quick announcement to release but Warhammer Underworlds is going from Harrowdeep into the Nethermaze with a new starter set. The boxed set features the Shadeborn consisting of four Khainite Shadowstalkers taking on Skuttershank’s Clawpack, Skaven from Clans Eshin.
The new core set contains everything you need to get going with Warhammer Underworlds, including a rulebook, 11 dice, 114 tokens, two double-sided boards, and a mammoth number of cards. These include fighter cards and a complete 32-card Rivals deck for each of the new warbands, as well as a set of 48 entirely new universal cards, and 36 Grand Alliance cards split evenly between Order, Chaos, Death, and Destruction.
Also coming are the Exiled Dead. Necromancy and forbidden technology raise the dead and harness the power of electricity… as well as dark magic. The set features 32 Exiled Dead cards, the set also comes with 20 universal objective, upgrade, and gambit cards, as well as three more cards for each Grand Alliance.
That’s not all for Warhammer Underworlds! Harrowdeep‘s two forces will be released on their own. You can get Xandire’s Truthseekers and Da Kunnin’ Krew, along with their complete Rivals decks.
Black Library is packed with releases.
Throne of Light is the fourth installment of the Dawn of Fire series by Guy Haley. Throne of Light brings an ancient enemy to the fore – one that Roboute Guilliman himself has reason to dread. The Word Bearers, led by Kor Phaeron, have their sights set on the Segmentum Solar.
There’s a special edition that’s signed and numbered with leather-effect binding, ribbed spine, gilt lettering and page edges, plus a gold ribbon bookmark. It also features an additional short story and map.
Gotrek Gurnisson: Soulslayer by Darius Hinks features Gotrek and his companions march to war in Chamon – only for their plans to be ruined when a band of aquatic aelven raiders decide his soul, burning brightly as it does, is too good a prize to pass up.

There are new French and German editions as well. Flesh and Steel arrives in French while Skavenslayer and Sons of the Emperor: An Anthology gets a German release. All are available in paperback and eBook editions.
