Warhammer 40.000: Neue Vorschau
Games Workshop präsentieren auf der Warhammer-Community eine neue Vorschau zu Warhammer 40.000 und Kill Team.
Viglius stands on the precipice. War has shaken it from without and within, as Genestealer Cults wage a shadowy war against the Space Wolves and the Adeptus Mechanicus, while Ork warbands patrol the wastes between cities. This planet – a fragile thread that joins the sundered halves on the Imperium – is on the verge of collapse.
A mission of salvation by the warriors of Saim-hann has turned into a blood feud between the Imperium and that craftworld – and now, upon the streets of Vigilus, the Ultramarines prepare for urban war with the vengeful Aeldari…
Wake the Dead is a new battlebox that continues the developing story of Vigilus, as the guerrilla war beneath the planet’s surface tilts into global conflict. Inside, you’ll find two armies – a conclave of Craftworlds warriors and an elite strike force of Primaris Space Marines.
Each of these armies is led by a brand-new plastic Character, with a Primaris Lieutenant and a Spiritseer:
Thanks to the campaign book in the box, you’ll be able to play through this chapter in the developing story of Vigilus yourself with a series of narrative missions, datasheets and matched play points included in the set. If you’re looking to get a friend started with Warhammer 40,000 or want to learn yourself, this is a great way to begin.
Like the Tooth and Claw and Forgebane battleboxes before it, Wake The Dead will save you a huge chunk of money compared to getting the models inside separately, making it a great way to expand your collection or begin a new one.
That’s not all! For Kill Team, next week you’ll be able to order a new Killzone, plus two new Kill Team Starter Sets.
The Wall of Martyrs Killzone gives you another new battlefield to fight over, letting you duke it out in brutal trench-line skirmishes. With defence lines, emplacements and a double-sided gaming mat, you’ll have a cracking Kill Team setup right out of the box, complete with an environment card, missions and Tactics for your games. From offering narrative campaigns a dramatic backdrop for their battles to providing matched play players with new tactical challenges, all while saving you some money on some great terrain, this Killzone has a little something for everyone.
You’ll also be able to kick off your xenos kill teams with two new Starter Sets, focusing on the T’au Empire and the Necrons. Like their predecessors, these boxes are the best way to get involved with a new Faction, offering Tactics cards you won’t find anywhere else, models to build your kill team with, terrain to expand your Killzones and some nifty token sheets – all at a lower price than getting the contents separately.
You’ll be able to pre-order Wake the Dead and the latest Kill Team expansions next weekend – that’s the 29th of September – while we’ll be previewing them all this week on Warhammer Community. In the meantime, let us know what you’re looking forward to most on the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page.
