At the end of their preview, Games Workshop teased an update for the Black Templars for the latest edition of Warhammer 40K! Someone has made a vow to wipe out the Orks. Will we see them as a main force in the second book for Warzone: Octarius?
The Orks are coming for Warhammer 40,000 and they’re getting a hell of an update that’s a bit of a throwback to their 2nd and 3rd edition days and twist on the Snakebites Clan. As been teased for some time, A new Ork tribe, Beast Snaggas, is coming relying heavily on Squigs including ones to ride and massive ones that are the size of war machines. Also teased are new Defkoptas which haven’t had an update since “Black Reach”.
Shown off is a new Ork Kill Rig, a massive miniature that features a giant Squig pulling a warmachine and packed with weapons. Think a massive battlewagon but pulled by a Squig. The first option for it features a Wurrboy in a tower and a second option features a massive harpoon. It’s also a transport and solid in close combat!
The new Beastboss is the warboss equivalent for the Beast Snagga Orks. The power klaw has a bit of a more bone styling about it and the miniature features a small squig on its shoulder to shoot.
Mozrog Skargbad is the rider of Chompa the Great White Squig. He’s the biggest, baddest, Beastboss and named character for the army. Also revealed is a Beastboos on Squigosaur which can also be made from the same kit.
New Ork Boyz has been revealed that look like a nice update to the classic Boyz which hasn’t had an update for a long time. They have a similar aesthetic to the classic figures and should match the current range well.
New Deffkoptas are coming! A new multipart kit is coming updating a kit that hasn’t been updated since “Black Reach”. The figures look like they’d fit in well with those older models.
A new terrain piece is coming, a Big’ed Bossbunka. It’s a command center for the army leader and allows them to shout their commands to the army. There’s also a massive amount of shootas bolted on.
The Beast Snagga launch box will be available on July 17 so you don’t need to wait too long to get some of the new models including a new codex!
A new War Zone for Warhammer 40,000 has been revealed, War Zone: Octarius. The first book is called “Rising Tide“. The region is ravaged by a massive Ork Waaaagh and Tyranid attack and the Imperium is doing what it can to prevent both from breaking out.
But, how to do that isn’t so clear. Some Inquisitors feel the Orks should win and they should be helped to defeat the Tyranids. Some feel the Tyranids should be allowed to defeat the Orks. And some think both of those ideas are horrible.
The book is packed with lore and rules for the armies involved including Armies of Renown and Codex Supplements.
During their Saturday preview, Games Workshop revealed a new edition of Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team. Dubbed “Octarius” for the new warzone it takes place the box set features Death Korps of Krieg and Orks. The boxed set is packed with a Kill Team for each faction as well as terrain with an Ork theme. The terrain has a vibe of the Ork fort from the classic Gorka Morka.
The Ork Kommando Kill Team features 12 miniatures including a Grot and Squig with bomb attached. The Death Korps of Krieg Veteran Guardsman Kill Team features 10 miniatures.
Also included is a core book, Octarius manual, combat dice and gauges, tactical op cards, tokens, a 30″x22″ gameboard, and Ork buildings and scrap piles terrain. The gameboard is the same size of previous edition boards.
The boxed set isn’t limited or made to order but will not be around forever. So, when it goes, it goes. Nothing in this boxed set is exclusive and everything will be available separately.
This Saturday is a new preview that’s supposed to be Ork heavy for Warhammer 40,000 and that looks like a new version of Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team! The game has been redesigned “from the ground up” so should be interesting to see what this new version brings.
Check out the cinematic trailer below that features Orks taking on the Death Korps of Krieg. This is sure to be a popular set with collectors of both forces.
Three new figures are being added to McFarlane Toys‘ line of Warhammer 40,000 figures. A new Sisters of Battle variant as well as a new Necron have been revealed and are available for pre-order.
The Order of the Bloody Rose is now represented with a new variant on the already released Adepta Sororitas Battle Sister. The figure looks to be the same as the already released figure but with a variant on the paint job.
Flayed Ones are Necrons who have been infected and succumbed to the Flayer Virus of the C’tan Llandu’gor, a Star god who inflicted Necrons with it as retribution for being obliterated by them. As a result the virus drives them insane with a hunger for blood and gore. The figure has the robotic look of Necrons but are decorated with the skin and body parts of their opponents!
