Warhammer 40k: Shadow War Armageddon Update
Games Workshop enthüllen ein neues Spiel, Shadow War Armageddon, das wohl in den Ruinen der Makropolen von Armageddon spielen wird und Orks gegen Scouts der Blood Angels in den Kampf führt.
New Game Announced at Gama Trade Show
Breaking news from the Gama Trade Show, a brand new boxed game has just been announced – Shadow War: Armageddon.
Some of the Warhammer Community team are currently at the huge trade show in Las Vegas, and are showcasing some of the exciting new releases on the way over the next few months. The first of these is Shadow War: Armageddon.
Right now we don’t have a huge amount of detail on this set (though we will, very soon), but what we do know is that it is a squad-level game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. The specific setting is the hive cities of War Zone: Armageddon, and the two forces pitted against each other are Space Marines Scouts from the Blood Angels Chapter and ferocious Ork Boyz.
We think the idea of close-range combat amongst the sprawling ruins of Imperial industry sounds pretty ace.
We’ll have more news for you on this game, as well as other new releases, over the next several hours, so stay posted!
Auf Bell of lost Souls gibt es weitere Infos direkt von der Gama Trade Show.
Here’s the basics from our BoLS reporter on site at the GAMA trade show:
Necromunda will re-released in a new reimagined edition.
Titled Armageddon Shadow Wars
Rules will be almost identical to the original.
Organized Play support will accompany the new game.
Unlike Killteam, there is a point-based system for buying your gang.
The game does NOT use the 40K rules, stats, etc at all.
The game will ship with 12 factions.
The core box will contain Blood Angels Marine Scouts and Orks
Auch von Games Workshop gibt es mittlerweile weitere Informationen.
We did say you wouldn’t have to wait long to find out more about this game.

So, it’s a new, self-contained game set in the hive cities of Armageddon, with Orks against Space Marines and the option to add almost a dozen more factions? Sounds pretty cool to us.
Those veteran gamers out there will be keen to learn that much of the ruleset is based off of the classic Necromunda game, including some in-between game advancements and earning experience that can see your small recon-force grow to become an elite unit of honed killers.
The terrain is perhaps the star of the set though. Never before has the tangled structure of an industrial hive been better represented. Your warriors can hide behind chimneys, sprint along walkways, gain higher ground, duck under arcane mechanisms, and generally make full use of this great new set.
The kits are, of course, also suitable for Warhammer 40,000 games, and it is fully modular, meaning you can combine kits in all sorts of unusual ways to create some truly huge and awesome terrain pieces.
You’ll be able to expand your game with extra models for the two squads in the box, or even add whole new races. The Kill Teams are all designed to be built around squads in an army you might already have, or can pick-up in a single boxed set. Here are a few of the units that you will be able to use, in case you wanted to get started building and painting now:
- Skitarii Rangers
- Chaos Space Marines
- Dark Eldar Wyches
- Dire Avengers
- Eldar Guardians
- Harlequin Troupe
- Grey Knights Strike Squad
- Necron Immortals
- Necron Warriors
- Tau Empire Pathfinder Team
- Tyranid Warrior Brood
- Neophyte Hybrids
- Scouts with sniper rifles
- Cadian Infantry Squad
- Ork Boyz
