Warhammer Underworlds: Direchasm and Warcry Invade Games Workshop’s Pre-Orders Next Week
Descend into Direchasm as the latest season of Warhammer Underworlds goes up for pre-order on December 5. Warhammer Underworlds: Direchasm features everything you need to play including two warbands and two read-to-play decks, boards, dice, and tokens. You’ll be able to do battle with Myari’s Purifiers, a band of Lumineth Realm-lords who are trying to calm the mountain to prevent it from fully awakening. The Hedonites of the Dread Pageant are searching for Slaanesh but have found enjoyment from feeding on the mountain’s primal emotions.
There’s also more to customize your games including Order and Chaos themed dice packs, a set of tokens, and a deck box to protect your objective and power cards.
You can also dive further into the world of Direchasm with a short anthology from Black Library. The book features 11 tales of nightmare clashes in the depths of the the mountain. The hardback edition of the anthology also features three power cards to use featuring alternative-art of cards from the Core set.
There are more fantasy clashes ahead for the weekend pre-orders. Warcry gets new books, dice, and sets to do battle with.
You’ll be able to order four brand-new books that dive into the Grand Alliances and their warriors. Each includes lists of the leaders, fighters, and monsters available to the factions. They also feature thematic background tables for each warband, and campaigns to help test your skills in battle. You can choose from:
- Agents of Chaos
- Bringers of Death
- Harbingers of Destruction
- Sentinels of Order
There’ll also be new themed dice for each book in colors for each Grand Alliance.
