Games Workshop Pre-Order Preview: Arks of Omen begins with new 40K Battleforces

Games Workshop is kicking off 2023 with a bang! Warhammer 40,000 gets the spotlight with a lot of releases that might shake up the game in the new year.

Arks of Omen begins with its first volume “Abaddon“. The book will be available in standard and collectors’ editions and kicks off a new story. The Despoiler is teaming with the daemon Vashtorr the Arkifane for his latest scheme.

It introduces new rules and missions for Boarding Actions, a new way to play the game.

But, to play a game that’s supposed to take place on a spaceship, you’ll need a board to play on. The Boarding Actions Terrain Set allows you to do that quickly. It features two double-sided game boards and 68 pieces of modular terrain.
