With the Warhammer 40K: Leviathan box coming out next weekend, the upcoming Games Workshop pre-orders continue the 40K releases for those that missed or didn’t want the box set.
Kicking things off, you can get your Warhammer 40,000 Core Book. The 280-page hardback book contains everything you need to start your journey into the grim darkness of the far future.
It contains dozens upon dozens of pages of lore and artwork detailing the history that underpins Warhammer 40,000, faction focus sections with background info, and also miniature galleries. You’ll get the core rules for the game, plus rules for playing Combat Patrol games – including six missions.
If you own a copy of Warhammer 40,000: Leviathan, you already have a tome that contains everything in this book.
Also coming is the Warhammer 40,000 Core Book (Limited Edition). It features the art of the Emperor on the Golden Throne. It also features six metal objective markers, two double-sided rules reference sheets, and five double-sided art prints in an envelope. It’s limited to just 1,600 copies.
Crusade: Tyrannic War gives you what you need to run campaigns for the new edition. The 184 page-page book features new Crusade rules as well as rules and missions set during the Fourth Tyrannic War. Bespoke Battle Traits, Crusade Relics, Crusade Blessings and Agendas feature alongside traits for Monster Hunters and Striding Behemoths – usable by any faction – along with 15 Tyrannic War Crusade Missions that tell the story of the Galactic West under attack by numerous Hive Fleets.
Note that the printed contents of this book are the same as the Crusade section in the Warhammer 40,000: Leviathan Core Book – if you already bought Leviathan, you already have these rules and lore.
There’s also the Crusade: Tyrannic War (Collectors’ Edition) which features gold foil blocking and a black ribbon.
Chapter Approved: Leviathan Mission Deck contains 66 cards to help generate and place Chapter Approved missions, plus rules for using them and a sheet of six cardboard objective tokens. Five Deployment cards work with nine Primary Mission cards and 12 Mission Rules cards to create over 400 different missions for you to play. Mix things up mid-game with 16 Attacker and 16 Defender Secondary Mission cards, as well as 4 Attacker and 4 Defender Gambit cards. These cards first appeared in Warhammer 40,000: Leviathan.
For the first time, you can get printed Warhammer 40,000 Index Cards. Every faction gets a set and these feature datasheets for the faction as well as army rules and a themed Detachment. You can get these for free as downloadable PDFs.
Black Library has a lot of books to enjoy.
The Martyr’s Tomb (Special Edition) is limited to 2,000 copies and features a leather-effect cover, rounded spine, foil text, gold ribbon bookmark, and gold gilt page edges. By Marc Collins, it continues the Dawn of Fire series with the sixth installment. The Order of Our Martyred Lady and the Black Templars are all that lies between legions of plague-ridden cultists and the complete and utter defeat.
You can also get the book in French and English as a paperback, eBook, and MP3 format.
Void King by Marc Collins is a tale of three Rogue Trader dynasties entwined by secrets, tragedies, and betrayals.
The King of the Spoil by Jonathan D. Beer is the latest Warhammer Crime book. The fragile of alliance of thugs and narco-pushers previously held in balance by the Sorokin are falling into open warfare, while schemers move in the shadows, and all of Varangantua lies on the precipice of chaos.
