GW: Neuheiten vom New Year Open Day 2020
Games Workshop starten das neue Jahr direkt mit einem Open Day in der Warhammer-World in Nottingham und zeigen eine Vorschau auf kommende Neuheiten.
Reveals from the New Year Open Day 2020
Warhammer Age of Sigmar
The big news of 2019 was the rise of the Ossiarch Bonereapers – Nagash’s new legion, ready to bring war to every corner of the realms. 8 of those corners lie within the Eightpoints, the heart of Archaon’s empire of Chaos. So, now the forces of Death are making a play for the most strategically valuable citadel in creation.
Prepare for the ultimate Evil vs Evil mega Chaos-Death fight in “Wrath of the Everchosen”.
This new book tells the story of the Ossiarch Bonereaper invasion of the Eightpoints and the battle for the Varanspire. It’s just as well a lot of you have recently started new Chaos forces, as you are going to have lots of undead to kill in 2020.*
There will be loads of fun stuff for every gamer in the Age of Sigmar too, with new rules for wandering monsters, roaming endless spells and even siege warfare!
Chaos players will get especially spoilt, with a host of new army options to represent the myriad forces under Archaon’s command – mortal, monster and daemonic alike. It’s a good time to be bad!
Warhammer Age of Sigmar – Warcry
Speaking of the Varanspire and its monstrous denizens – today’s attendees are also getting their first chance to see the forthcoming Warcry monsters in the (plastic) flesh. Here are the brutal Fomoroid Crusher, the elegant but deadly Mindstealer Sphiranx and the gladiatorial Ogroid Myrmidon in all their glory.
Your warband will definitely want to break the spirit of one of these beasts and add them to your menagerie as you seek glory in the Bloodwind Spoil, and you won’t have to wait long as they’ll both be available in the next few weeks.
Warhammer Underworlds – Beastgrave
Fighting for a different type of glory is the newest Warhammer Underworlds warband. Hrothgorn’s Mantrappers are coming to Beastgrave and are looking hungry.**
Ooh, let’s take a closer look at Hrothgorn, his Frost Sabre Thrafnir and his Gnoblar followers.
It doesn’t matter how big you are or how small – everyone in Beastgrave is going to be prey when Hrothgorn arrives.
Think you’ve already seen everything there is to see from the Adepta Sororitas? Think again!
Wow! Zephyrim, Retributors, and that Battle Sanctum! Get another view of the individual miniatures.
Providing both a fitting centrepiece for your collection and a thematic focal point for your battlefield is this impressive statue of a living Saint. Even if you don’t have a Sisters of Battle Army, any battlefield will look 50% more “Warhammer” with this angelic and wrathful addition.
The models are spectacular and adorned with numerous characterful features. We’re especially fond of the Cherubim carrying a spare melta-reload for the Retributors and the dove accompanying the Zephyrim, dutifully clutching that all-important ecclesiarchy scroll.
Alongside the tanks and characters we’ve seen already, these models complete the Sisters of Battle range – fully plastic and everything we could have hoped for. The Adepta Sororitas will be with us in full very soon – stay tuned to warhammer-community.com for news.
All these new Imperial models are great, but isn’t it about time we got a mega xenos hero in plastic?
Yes, yes it is.
O’Shaserra, better known as Commander Shadowsun, is getting an awesome new model!
Her newly up-gunned battlesuit now comes equipped as standard with an arsenal of weapons, from a flechette launcher to light missile pod, and the choice of tank-busting high-energy fusion blasters or Space Marine-melting dispersed fusion blasters. Shadowsun is also accompanied by her trusty pair of high-tech drones which bring with them a suite of handy tactical abilities.
Best of all, as befits this iconic hero of the empire, she can now lead any Sept, not just those of her homeworld, so she can take command of any T’au Empire collection***. We think she’ll look right at home at the head of a strike force of Stealth Suits and Ghostkeels.
Shadowsun drops in alongside the release of book 5 of Psychic Awakening, titled “The Greater Good”, but we’ll have to wait a little bit longer before we find out who the T’au will be up against.
* We can get into the philosophical debate about whether it’s actually possible to kill the undead later.
** For power, for glory, for food. Ogors are always hungry!
***She’s not a big fan of Farsight though…
Whisperings from Hysh
Welcome back! We’ve been hearing some rumours about someone who will be coming soon to the battlAELFields of the Mortal Realms…
Wow, so Teclis and his “proper” aelves are on their way this year! Can’t wait to see what he brings with him…
