New Warhammer 40,000 Combat Patrols Make Your 2022 Army Building Easier

Games Workshop has revealed new Warhammer 40,000 Combat Patrols for 2022 to help build out your forces or start a new one!

T’au, Grey Knights, Adeptus Custodes, Genestealer Cults, and Thousand Sons are all getting new Combat Patrol releases.

Combat Patrols have retailed for $140 and featured pretty decent savings. If things remain the same, how do these stack up?

  • T’au: ~$218 retail separately, the Ethereal figure currently is only in the Start Collecting box.
  • Grey Knights: ~$175, the box features a five man Strike Squad making the value a little less than others.
  • Adeptus Custodes: ~$218, the box has a nice mix and is one of the more intriguing releases and the box’s value will really be determined by what units you can make out of it as is.
  • Genestealer Cults: ~$258, if this one keeps the regular retail price for the boxes, it might be one of the best values out there and as far as a force, this one looks like a really solid way to start.
  • Thousand Sons: ~$178, the character included isn’t currently offered on its own so this one’s a bit of a guess. The inclusion of so many Tzaangors and no Rubric Marines is a bit odd.

Warhammer 40K Goes from War Zones to Seasons

Since the launch of Warhammer 40,000 9th edition, Games Workshop has regularly been releasing themed War Zones that feature War Zone books featuring new rules, new mission packs, and recently a tie-in for Kill Team. Enhanced with articles in White Dwarf, this was a great way to keep things focused and create new narrative campaigns. That themed War Zone release schedule is going away for seasons… which is the exact same thing.

Each season will last six months which is the big difference between the previous plan which lasted more over the actual release schedule as opposed to a time frame.

Each season will focus on a corner of the galaxy and the happening there, pivotal flashpoints, a concept that has become popular with the latest edition. Each new season will feature new miniatures, rules, and more.

The first season is a return to Vigilus which sees the Imperium holding the planet but that’s on an edge. War Zone Nachmund will play out with a new campaign book that features new army rules, an Army of Renown, and a Codex Supplement, as well as legendary missions, and Crusade rules to link games together.

War Zone Nachmund

There will also be a new Crusade mission pack. The pack will feature 24 new missions, extra Requisitions, Agendas and Battle Traits, and a War of Faith campaign system. This sees armies casting down false idols and their worshippers for greater rewards.

Crusade Mission Pack Wars of Faith

Finally, a new Grand Tournament Mission pack will be released which sets up the next six months of competitive play. This includes new missions, new secondary objectives, and updated points costs for armies.

Grand Tournament Mission

For miniatures, the Eldritch Omens box set which pits Aeldari and Chaos against each other is set in the Nachmund Gauntlet.

Eldritch Omens

Finally, the next Kill Team boxed set will be set in the Nachmund Gauntlet. It’ll feature two new kill teams to battle it out allowing smaller skirmish games to enhance the narrative campaign.

Kill Team

While not a ton has changed, the themed and coordinated releases sees a tighter focus on what has been built up since the launch of the newest edition of Warhammer 40,000. There’s synergy between game systems allowing for grand campaigns and storytelling from big battles to small skirmishes and missions and extending the play from the local tabletop to grand tournaments. 2022 is looking like an exciting time to be a Warhammer 40,000 player.
