Games Workshop Pre-Order Preview: Gallowfall, Kill Team, Adeptus Titanicus, and Blood Bowl
Kill Team: Gallowfall is the final boxed expansion for this season of Kill Team. A deep-space salvage team from the Leagues of Votann battle with a braying band of Beastmen for possession of long-lost Ironkin cognitive units. This boxed set contains parts and rules for both of these kill teams, as well as a set of Gallowdark terrain with exciting new bells and whistles to play nine new missions.
The Fellgor Ravagers are bestial abhumans that have come to call the Gallowdark home, creating profane sites of worship around headstones carved from chunks of hull. Unruly masses of flesh, fur, teeth, and horns, each one is a skilled hunter and depraved killer. Their savagery stands in the way of the calculating technological might of the Hearthkyn Salvagers, who reclaim valuable relics and resources from the dark corners of the cosmos.
The Beastmen are an all-new kill team, with 10 models who can be built as Fellgor Warriors or a range of fiendish specialists – including an Ironhorn, a Shaman, a Fluxbray and more. The kit also includes loads of interchangeable heads and horns, for that full custom Chaos experience.
The Leagues of Votann kill team comprises a set of Hearthkyn Warriors with an additional sprue of new upgrade components, allowing you to build operatives such as the Kognitâar, Lugger, and Jump-pack Warrior.
The set also contains Kill Team: Gallowfall, a 120-page tome containing full rules for using both teams and the new terrain pieces in a set of nine linked missions. As for terrain, you get a full set of Gallowdark corridors and hatches, plus 18 new pieces including escape pods, autopsy tables, surgical chairs, stasis pods, medical supply tables, and iron lungs. On top of that, there’s a double-sided game board and a sheet of Leagues of Votann transfers!
The Adeptus Arbites get their first standalone release for roughly two decades with Kill Team: Exaction Squad, and this Exaction Squad is very flexible. The kit can build an Exaction Squad kill team of 10 Arbitrators and a loyal R-VR Cyber-mastiff, with plenty of specialists trained to track down the Imperium’s most wanted.
Those who want to bring the law to the battlefields of Warhammer 40,000 can also build a whole Subductor Squad armed with shock mauls and assault shields, or a full Vigilant Squad armed with combat shotguns and heavier weaponry – both of which get a R-VR Cyber-mastiff of their own.
Killzone Upgrade: Soulshackle helps to add some variety to your killzone. It includes four breach points – with pop-out damaged wall action – and additional terrain details like a holoith dias, augur displays, and hatchway jammers. You can use these upgrades to build your dream killzone, and to augment your Boarding Action games with the new Breaching Operation missions found in Arks of Omen: The Lion.
The Kill Team: Fellgor Ravagers Dice Set will help gain favors with the Chaos Gods. They’re cast in black with orange pips and the Fellgor Ravagers logo on the six face.
The ever-useful Stratagem cards return in four themed packs, previously available for a limited time only. Loyalist and Traitor Princeps each get a pack of their own handy reference cards, containing seven Stratagems unique to their chosen allegiance, nine Legio-specific cards, and 10 general cards usable by any side.
The Defence of Ryza card pack grants access to Experimental Warfare and Tricks and Tactics Stratagems, alongside 15 Legio-specific campaign cards usable with the rules found in the Campaign Compendium. Knight Households also get their own Stratagem cards, with universal Knight Stratagems and House-specific options like their larger Legio cousins.
Whip up a Titan-sized battle in moments with the Open Engine War Card Pack – a selection of 50 cards that make setting up your games a doddle. Randomly selected cards give plenty of Deployment Maps, Primary and Secondary Objectives, and optional Planetary Effects to ensure no two battles are quite alike, and all you’ll need is the base Adeptus Titanicus Rulebook to use them.
Leave the opposing team battered and bruised with Dribl & Drull, a pair of low-down dirty players to add to your Lustrian Superleague teams. Dribl and Drull are a pair of infuriatingly sneaky skinks who will work in tandem to tackle and stab their way to victory while dancing beyond reach of reprisal. This pack contains two resin models.
Withergrasp Doubledrool is a heavily mutated Beastman with two heads and tentacles aplenty. He/they employs his/their god-given gifts in “Favoured of…” teams, proving difficult to take down, and even harder to escape from when they take up residence on the line of scrimmage. Withergrasp Doubledrool will be available in resin.
The Great Devourer: The Leviathan Omnibus is a collection of stories featuring these ravenous xenos by Black Library authors Guy Haley, Josh Reynolds, Braden, Campbell, Joe Parrion, L J Goulding, and Nick Kyme. This hefty collection will be available in paperback.
The Order of Our Martyred Lady is filled with the most battle-hungry and renowned warriors across the Adepta Sororitas. Sister Helewise and her fellow Sororitas will have their faith tested as they follow in the footsteps of the legendary Saint Katherine in a mission fraught with disaster. Justin D Hill’s Pilgrims of Fire is the first story in a series covering the major Orders, and will be available in hardback, eBook, and audiobook formats.
Meeting your heroes is never a good idea, and it might be an even worse prospect in the 41st Millennium. Ace pilot Lucille von Shard is set to star in a cinema-pict about the air war on planet Bacchus, but the hero Imperial Propagandist Kile Simlex expects to find turns out to be an arrogant misanthrope… who just so happens to be the only thing between the approaching Green Storm. Outgunned is a high-flying tale by Denny Flowers, and will be available in paperback.
Colonel Haskell ‘Hell Fist’ Aldalon and the Catachan 57th Jungle Fighters have been dispatched to Gondwa VI to help prise it from the grip of an ever-growing ork threat. Their plan is to go on a full offensive and retake a strategically vital stronghold, but there are complications afoot – among them, a hapless rookie tagging along… German readers can enjoy Catachan Devil by Justin Woolley for the first time in paperback and eBook.
The T’au Empire has shot down a Valkyrie carrying an Astra Militarum general on the besieged planet of Dasht i-Kevar. The secrets they will gain may imperil the entire war effort – unless Captain Bharath Obeysekera and his squad of elite Kasrkin can weather the hazards of the desert wastes and get the general back. Kasrkin by Edoardo Albert will be available for French readers in hardback and eBook.
French readers can continue their exploration of the Horus Heresy as the Mark of Calth anthology, Vulkan Lives by Nick Kyme, and The Unremembered Empire by Dan Abnett are brought together in one volume for the first time.
