Games Workshop Pre-Order Previews – Death Guard and the Japanese Malignant Plaguecaster, Warhammer Underworlds, and more

It’s a pretty light week for Games Workshop‘s pre-orders next week with some new releases and as well as a much-in-demand reprint.

Highlighting the week are the Space Marine Heroes 2023 – Death Guard. Games Workshop’s “blind box” range continues with the Death Guard featuring seven figures that were previously available as blind boxes but… the much-wanted Malignant Plaguecaster that was only available in Japan is now a part of the box! If you get an entire case of eight boxes you’re guaranteed to get all seven figures or roll the dice and pick them up individually. Each miniature comes with a detailed base and doesn’t require any glue to assemble.

The box includes step-by-step instructions to help guide players through their first games, and it steadily introduces new rules and game mechanics until pure novices become seasoned veterans.

Games Workshop Pre-Order Preview: Kill Team: Ashes of Faith, Horus Heresy, Made to Order Space Marines and more!

While we wait for the release of Warhammer 40K 10th edition in June, Games Workshop has some releases to get you ready with Kill Team, some made to order Space Marines, and releases for Horus Heresy and Necromunda. Check out everything coming to pre-order next week.

Kill Team: Ashes of Faith bridges the gap between the previous season of releases and the next. It falls to the clandestine warriors of the Inquisition to lead the charge against these forces of sedition. Kill Team: Ashes of faith provides a lengthy narrative campaign focused on a group of these operatives and their attempt to purge a whole planet of a malignant Chaos Cult. There are 40 miniatures, 23 for the Chaos Cult, and 17 assorted Inquisitorial Agents. Seven of these are brand-new dual-build miniatures that allow you to build a rag-tag band of hyper-talented weirdos. The set also contains the Ashes of Faith Campaign Rulebook with all the rules for playing out this planet-spanning narrative, and dozens of accessories.
