It’s a Packed Pre-Order Release Week with Warhammer 40,000, Warhammer Underworlds, Blood Bowl, and Lord of the Rings
Games Workshop has taken a few weeks off for new releases but are back with a week packed with releases that will make the wallet hurt. Check out below for everything you can get starting today.
Expand your Drukhari and Adepta Sororitas with the Piety and Pain box. The campaign box features both armies along with a 32-page campaign book featuring datasheets, missions, Crusade rules, and Theatre of War rules for urban areas.
The Adepta Sororitas army includes five heavy-weapon toting Retributors with a pair of Armorium Cherubs, a heavily armoured Immolator, and a Palatine – a new hero with head and weapons options.
The Drukhari force is a swift Wych Cult warband led by the legendary duellist Lelith Hesperax. The stunning new plastic model of this beloved character is joined by ten Wyches, five winged Scourges, and a Venom.
You’ll be able to take advantage of the new codex for the Drukhari which allows you to use your Kabals, Wych Cults, and Haemoculus Covens. It’s everything you need to play. It comes in a regular and collector’s edition.
Expand your forces with the Combat Patrol: Drukhari. The box set features 18 plastic models that’s themed around the Kabals. It features an Archon leading 10 Kabalite Warriors and five Incubi into battle with a Raider and Ravager.
Along with the new codex you can get the Drukhari datacards and dice.
Also out for Warhammer 40,000 is The Book of Rust, the first act in the War Zone Charadon series.
This campaign book tells the story of the Death Guard invasion of the Charadon sector, home to the vital forge world Metalica. Led by Typhus himself, the followers of Nurgle swarm across the sector, with the Imperium’s defenders standing against them and the piratical Drukhari taking advantage of the anarchy to plunder and pillage.
It features three codex supplements, three armies of Renown, and help to bring together games in a narrative. There’s a regular and collector’s edition.
Crusade Mission Pack: Plague Purge adds rules for Crusade games. Designed to work with the rules in The Book of Rust, this expansion includes 24 Crusade missions – six for each game size – along with rules for playing Plague Purge Crusades and a suite of Agendas, Requisitions, and Stratagems. It also includes the basic rules for Warhammer 40,000, making it a handy reference guide while you play.
The Seraphon debuts in Warhammer Underworlds: Direchasm with the Starblood Stalkers. The warband mixes strong and agile fighters.
Expand your games of Blood Bowl with a new field, team card pack, and dice and with a Halfling theme.
Merry and Pippin and Treebeard enter the battle for the Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game. It’s the largest kit for the game in years.
Middle-earth fans can also grab a dice set themed around the Ents of Fangorn Forest.
Black Library also has a lot of releases for those who want to spend some time reading. Dan Abnett‘s Ravenor Returned gets a limited edition release. Silent Hunters is a new tale of the vicious Carcharodons Space Marines written by Edoardo Albert. Blood of the Emperor is an anthology of six stories from some of your favorite authors. Finally, Josh Reynolds’ Manflayer comes to paperback.
