Adepticon 2023: Warhammer 40K 10th Edition Revealed along with new Termagants and Terminators

As expected, a new edition of Warhammer 40K was revealed at Adepticon 2023. The new edition takes place during the fourth Tyrannic invasion with Hive Fleet Leviathan ready to strike again, this time from the galactic west!

The new edition simplifies the game but doesn’t make it simple. Complexity, like too many stratagems, has been cut down. Everything has been worked on including turn structure, army selection, morale, terrain, missions, how characters work, and more.

Datasheets have the biggest change with every unit receiving new stats.

Warhammer 40k 10th edition Stats

The biggest news is that every datasheet and rules will be free to download on the first day. You’ll also be able to buy them as card decks as well. Codexes will return over time though but its promised complexity won’t increase.

Army selection as been simplified. You pick a faction, a warlord, and the units you like (just no more than three of any type with some exceptions). There’s no more force organization chart.

A new way to play was also revealed, Combat Patrol! This will feature small present and balanced forces to allow for a quick way to get armies to the tabletop.

With a new edition comes new models and what’s more appropriate than new Space Marine Terminators! These new models are larger than Primaris Marines but aren’t Primaris Marines as rumored. Veterans of all types don this armor for battle.

Also revealed are new Termagants for Tyranids!

Warhammer 40K 10th Edition will be released Summer 2023.

Commander Dante crosses the Rubicon Primaris and gets a new figure

After a leak yesterday, Games Workshop has officially revealed the new Commander Dante figure for Warhammer 40K. He now sports Mark X armor in his classic gold complete with a new sleek jump pack.

Dante features his classic equipment including the Death Mask of Sanguinius, laurel wreath, and Iron Halo. There’s also the Perdition Pistol and Axe Mortalis, both upscaled to fit the larger figure.

Dante is just the start of what’s to come as Warhammer 40K heads into the rumored 10th edition which will focus on the Blood Angels initially.

Games Workshop begins to tease Warhammer 40K 10th Edition?

Rumors for the 10th edition of Warhammer 40K have been swirling for months now and it looks like Games Workshop might have begun the tease for it. With a video and an image, we get a hint at something coming for the miniature tabletop game. As can be seen in the image below, a Terminator is reflected in the eye of what appears to be a Tyranid. Space Marines, with new Terminator models, and Tyranids are the two forces that are expected to be in the box set.

With Arks of Omen currently playing out, there’s not much left as far as new codex releases for the current edition of the game. Arks of Omen is halfway over and there are no new codexes teased after. Previous editions have ended with a storyline event.

Thoughts? Guesses?
