“On the Anvil of War are the strong tempered and the weak made to perish; thus are men’s souls tested as metal in the forge’s fire.”
–The Primarch Vulkan

New threats encroach upon the Traxis sector day by day, eating away at the edges of the Imperium. Now, the defense of this sector falls to you. Gather the forces of the Imperium and march to war with The Threat Beyond War Pack, now available for Warhammer 40,000: Conquest at your local retailer and online through our webstore!

In The Threat Beyond, you can take up arms against the dark forces that threaten the existence of Mankind. This expansion provides a new warlord for the Astra Militarum: an Inquisitor dedicated to defending the Imperium at any cost. What’s more, this War Pack continues the main themes of the Warlord cycle, introducing new warlords and lending greater significance to your warlord’s position. Now, you can spread a chaotic cacophony with Noise Marines, explode into battle with Fire Warrior Grenadiers, or watch your enemies cower before an Eldar wraithknight. Alternatively, you may join the Space Marines to help Torquemada Coteaz defend the Traxis sector from xenos threats.

Unstoppable and Deadly

The first new Space Marines unit to help you turn back new threats to the Imperium is the Imperial Fists Siege Force (The Threat Beyond, 55). This inexpensive unit can make a bid for a command struggle or aid in a larger battle, but its Reaction opens up some new tricks for you to hamper your opponent in the command struggle and keep xenos away from the Traxis sector’s vital planets. After you deploy the Imperial Fists Siege Force, you can choose and rout one or more target Ally units at its planet.

Most Ally units aren’t combat threats, but units like the Rogue Trader (Core Set, 171), the Void Pirate (Core Set, 170), or the Eldar Survivalist (Core Set, 129) offer additional resources and cards if you win command struggles at their planets. By deploying the Imperial Fists Siege Force, you can rout one of these units before the command struggle even begins, forcing it to follow your opponent’s warlord. Alternatively, if some of your own Ally units will be slain in the coming combat phase, you can use the Imperial Fists Siege Force to rout them back to your headquarters, saving them from death in the combat phase.

Another Space Marine chapter enters Warhammer 40,000: Conquest with the addition of the first Salamanders unit: the Firedrake Terminators (The Threat Beyond, 94). This formidable defensive unit boasts six hit points and its ability makes it even more dangerous to your opponent. Whenever the Firedrake Terminators are declared as a defender, you can deal one damage to the attacker! Just choosing to attack this unit weakens your opponent’s armies, setting you up to make new assaults on your own turn. You can even combine the Firedrake Terminators’ ability with Crushing Blow (Gift of the Ethereals, 52) to finish off any xenos or spawn of Chaos that survives your first blow.

Naturally, those who defend the Imperium and battle the threat beyond require the most powerful Wargear. The final Space Marines card included in this expansion is the Nocturne-Ultima Storm Bolter (The Threat Beyond, 96), an attachment that dramatically increases the firepower of whatever unit you attach it to. The card reads, “Reaction: After attached unit damages an enemy unit by an attack, deal damage equal to the attached unit’s ATK value to another target unit at the same planet.” The Nocturne-Ultima Storm Bolter essentially allows one of your army units to strike twice in a single combat turn. When attached to a high-ATK unit like the Honored Librarian (Core Set, 14), the carnage caused by this attachment is almost incomparable.

Wage War for the Traxis Sector

As a zealous new Astra Militarum warlord makes his mark on Warhammer 40,000: Conquest, will you confront the threats within the Traxis sector? Or will you embody those threats, calling on daemons and xenos to swell your armies? Choose your faction, and continue the battle for the sector with The Threat Beyond!

  • Eine ordentliche Erweiterung. Die Space Marine und die Eldar Karten fand ich ganz gut. Die Tau Karten haben meinem Kumpel weniger gefallen, da diese hauptsächlich Himmlische betreffen.
    Im Allgemeinen würde ich mir wünschen, dass sich das System bei den Unterfraktionen (z.B. Iron Fists, Himmlische usw) mal ein bisschen mehr in die Tiefe gehen würde anstatt so zu streuen.
