Magic: The Gathering Goes Beyond with its Warhammer 40,000 Collaboration

Wizards of the Coast revealed a lot of what’s coming soon for Magic: The Gathering and we’re excited for the collaboration with Games Workshop. Yes, Warhammer 40,000, Age of Sigmar, and Blood Bowl are all coming to Magic: The Gathering!

The two games combined with four 100-card Commander decks and three Secret Lair drops. But, you’ll also be able to use those cards in Commander, Legacy, and Vintage.

As part of Magic: The Gathering’s “Universes Beyond” the four commander decks are:

  • Tyranid Swarm (green-blue-red)
  • Forces of the Imperium (white-blue-black)
  • Necron Dynasties (mono-black)
  • The Ruinous Powers (blue-black-red)

There’s a regular edition and “Collector’s Edition” which comes fully foiled with never-before-seen special surge foil.

The three Secret Lair drops go further into the worlds of Games Workshop:

  • Secret Lair x Warhammer 40,000: Orks
  • Secret Lair x Warhammer Age of Sigmar
  • Secret Lair x Blood Bowl

Previews of the cards begin on July 26 with the Secret Lair Drop running from August 12-22. A worldwide release for the set is August 12 with the Launch Weekend Event taking place August 12-14.

With the announcement, we also got the first previews of cards being released.

Since the commander format is all about legendary creatures and big plays, it should be no surprise that Abaddon, the Despoiler is getting a card. He’s the “face” of “The Ruinous Powers” deck.

You’ll scream your loyalty to Khorn with Blood for the Blood God! Appropriately the cost to cast the card drops the more things die on the battlefield.

Blood for the Blood God!

Space Marine Vanguard Suppressors are a 3/2 creature and allows you to create a squad of them when the creature enters the battlefield through the token-related mechanic “Squad”.

The promo card Fabricate can be yours if you go to your local game store on launch day. The card features Belisarius Cawl and allows you to search your library for an artifact card and put it in your hand.

The Horus Heresy’s Plastic Sicaran Revealed

With The Horus Heresy: Age of Darkness releasing next month, Games Workshop has been revealing many of the releases we’ll be seeing for the game. Some are plastic takes on formerly resin kits. The latest reveal is the Sicaran!

Designed by Roboute Guilliman and Ferrus Manus, the Sicaran is a high-speed destroyer tank. It’s a complement to the Predator and Land Raider. With its speed it can outflank the enemy’s slower vehicles attacking weaker armor.

The plastic kit comes with a giant autocannon, and your choice of heavy bolters, lascannons, heavy flamer, or volkite culverins as sponson weapons. There’s also a choice of combi-weapons, a havoc launcher, a multi-melta, a heavy bolter, or a heavy flamer as a pintle-mounted weapon.

Even better, the tank can be used in games of The Horus Heresy: Age of Darkness as well as Warhammer 40K for both Space Marine and Chaos Space Marine forces. Expect this to be a popular kit when released!

Burn the Galaxy with the new Combat Patrol: Chaos Space Marines

Chaos is coming with a whole new codex and a lot of new miniatures to help burn the galaxy! To help you crush the loyalist scum, a brand new Combat Patrol: Chaos Space Marines is one the way.

A Dark Apostle and his two Dark Disciples lead the way and delivering blessings to your Core force.

Joining him is a squad of Legionairies which will feature a variety of wargear allowing you to be flexible for your playstyle. Also included are Havocs delivering death from a distance as heavy support. Finally, a Helbrute backs them up with an array of weaponry.

It all comes together for a base force of (currently) 745+ points.

While none of the miniatures look new, there’s about $218 worth of miniatures in the box and the new Combat Patrol boxes have retailed for about $150. It’s a nice base of miniatures to get started with and broad enough to be able to be used in multiple legions. Overall, it’ll be interesting to see how the set fits into the upcoming codex.

Warhammer Fest 2022 – War Zone Nephilim Kicks Off a New Season of Warhammer 40,000

A new Chapter Approved will kick off a new season and shake up matched play for the rest of the year. Chapter Approved: War Zone Nephilim is the next book and it will change things in a big way.

  • Command Points – Armies will now have about half as many. That makes using them much more strategic. You’ll also gain an extra CP each battle round allowing to be used as the game progresses.
  • Secondary Objectives – They’ve been rewritten and balanced. Some are now harder and some easier with some completely new. There’s also secondary objectives for armies whose codexes aren’t out yet.
  • Points Updates Will Be Free – You’ll be able to get updated points on the Warhammer 40,000: The App as well from the Warhammer Community website. They’ll be removed from the book!

Warhammer Fest 2022 – Chaos is Coming for 40K!

The 2022 Warhammer Fest kicked off today with reveals for Warhammer 40K. Chaos was the spotlight of the reveals with lots of all new miniatures for forces when Codex: Space Marines releases.

New Possessed were revealed and they’re supersized. Now, the size of Space Marines in Gravis Armor, they’re filled with the power of Chaos. Their corruption are perfect for any Chaos force.

Chaos is also getting a lot of new fodder to offer up to the Dark Gods. Cultists are getting new miniatures, lots of new ones it looks like. The new miniatures look like they’ll fit in perfectly with the already released ones for Blackstone Fortress as well as even the classic metal miniatures!

We say there’s a lot of Cultists coming because there’s also Accursed Cultists featuring all sorts of Mutants!

Or how about Torments who have been even further twisted by dark rituals and daemonic influence!

And Cultists need some leadership… enter the Dark Commune! The priestly Cult Demagogue leads the congregation, accompanied by the psychic Mindwitch and inspiring Iconrach, all guarded by two Blessed Blades, whose sword skills keep unbelievers at bay.

Chaos is also getting a new Daemon Prince! The miniature looks impressive with a massive amount of options to make it a unique leader for your force. Did we mention you can also build the kit for Age of Sigmar? This one looks really cool and a must get!

Finally, the World Eaters are getting their own codex! The force won’t be a part of the new Chaos Codex and instead will be a force by themselves like the Death Guard and Thousand Sons. The release will feature new Khorne Berzerkers! Expect a return of old favorites and new weapons of war!
