WizKids reveals a New Printing of Warhammer 40K Relic!

Warhammer 40,000 Relic

WizKids has announced the upcoming release of the iconic Warhammer 40,000 board game Relic!

A classic adventure game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, this 2-4 player game has players venturing forth to protect the Antian Sector, shielding it from certain doom. Each player will choose one of 10 unique characters, each of whom has a unique set of attributes that can fluctuate throughout the game. Each character also has an affiliation, representing a variety of different memorable groups in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. A scenario is then chosen randomly, which dictates the special rules and objective for the game.

At the beginning of their turn, a player will navigate the board by rolling a six-sided die and then progressing that many spaces. Players will then discover what threats they will face in this location by drawing the number and type of Threat cards indicated on the space. Players will then engage the threats by resolving events, battling enemies, and resolving encounters. At the end of their turn, a player may gain levels, acquire relics, or discard cards if their hand limit is exceeded.

A player wins when they complete the unique requirements of the Scenario’s confrontation in the Inner tier. Players who have entered the Scenario space in the inner tier may not move and must resolve the Scenario’s confrontation during their future turns. Will these intrepid heroes succeed in bringing the Antian Sector to safety, or will their mission end in failure?

Some of what we can expect in Chapter Approved 2018 for Warhammer 40K has been teased but Games Workshop has released more details and a teaser trailer.

The index will include rules for Loot Wagons for Ork armies but it’s also been revealed that rules for Commander Farsight’s elite bodyguard will also be included. There’ll be new datasheets for them to be used in games including matched play.

Adepta Sororitas, aka Sisters of Battles, will be getting a beta codex in the book. Yes, it’s a full codex and include rules for various Orders, Stratagems, and more.

Realm of Chaos: Wrath and Rapture Pits Khorne against Slaanesh

At Blood & Glory, Games Workshop revealed a brand new boxed set “Realm of Chaos: Wrath and Rapture” that pits the Daemons of Khorne against their Chaos rivals, the Daemons of Slaanesh.

The set will include lots of new miniatures and GW has revealed new Flesh Hounds and Fiends of Slaanesh. There’s lots more to come!

This sounds like a box set that’s a must for Chaos players for both Age of Sigmar and 40K.

Ork Looted Vehicles are Coming for Warhammer 40K

With the Ork Codex being released this week, Games Workshop has been busy with previews as to what we can expect in that new release.

We’ve seen details on all of the Clans and some of the vehicles but there’s been something missing… looted vehicles.

Well, we’ll only have to wait a few months for Chapter Approved 2018 to be able to field the fun.

Like Chapter Approved 2017 which featured rules for customizing Land Raiders, this year’s edition will contain rules and guidelines for fielding “pretty much any kind of Looted Wagon.”

Guess we can dust off our Looted Chimera, Landraider… and Landspeeders!?

Games Workshop Begins to Tease Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress

Games Workshop has teased it and later this year we’ll dive into the mystery that is Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress their newest board game and first edition of Warhammer Quest to be set in the Warhammer 40K universe.

Around the Blackstone Fortress lies a midden of shattered fleets – the graveyards of those foolish enough to try to take this ancient citadel by force. From the ruins of these failed ventures came a space station – a waypoint for those looking to venture into the fortress themselves.

Teasing the new game, Games Workshop has released a video bringing us the first details as to the story behind the game.

Who’s that talking in the video? That’d be Rogue Trader Janus Draik – an intrepid explorer drawn to the Blackstone Fortress in search of glory. He’s the first of what will be many new miniatures promised in the game, which will be out before the year is up.

Waaargh! The Orks Have Arrived for Warhammer 40K

Games Workshop latest pre-orders are up and it’s Ork-tastic as the latest army has been released for Warhammer 40K.

You can now field the Ork army you always dreamed of, complete with new Stratagems, rules for the Clans, new datasheets and much more with the new codex, available in print, enhanced and strictly limited collector’s edition of Codex Orks.

Spearhead your new Ork vehicles with the Deffkilla Wartrike – a fast-moving HQ option that crosses a mighty Warboss with a jet-powered buggy.

Capable of blasting enemies with no fewer than FOUR deadly varieties of Squig, the flexible Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy has a spot in any army.

Combine the firepower of a Dakkajet, the speed of a buggy and the insanity of an Ork in the armour-destroying Megatrakk Scrapjet, a grounded Ork Flyer armed to the teeth with guns and explosives.

Few vehicles boast as much firepower as the Boomdakka Snazzwagon, specialized in annihilating enemies in a single burst of it’s “mek speshul”.

Available to all Ork armies, the Mekboy Workshop is a terrain piece can repair anything from buggies to Stompas – as well as providing them with all sorts of Orky enhancements.

Blessed by Gork and Mork themselves (okay, not really), these dice have been specially designed to match your Ork army.

If you’re facing Orks, you’ll need an Ork hunter. Did you miss Sly Marbo last year? Here’s your second chance to grab the infamous one-man army for your own Astra Militarum collection.
