40k: Das Psionische Erwachen beginnt
In einer ersten Vorschau zeigt Games Workshop die neuen Eldar Banshees aus Kunstoff, die im Rahmen der nächsten großen Erweiterung für Warhammer 40.000 erscheinen werden.
Psychic Awakening: The First Prophecy… And an Exarch!
Last week, we unveiled the Psychic Awakening map and revealed the name of the first instalment. Today, we’re revealing the first part of a prophecy that may yet define the very future of the 41st Millennium itself…
Sounds ominous, right? The Aeldari have been battling their doom ever since the birth of Slaanesh. Could things be about to get even worse? Does the awakening of Ynnead offer hope of salvation to a dwindling race or will it be their final death knell? So many questions, but not enough answers – yet…
Anyway, the Psychic Awakening isn’t all about the (super-exciting, mind-blowing and game-changing!) developments to the background of Warhammer 40,000 – there are loads of awesome new miniatures coming too, such as this amazing new PLASTIC Howling Banshee Exarch.
Cool, huh? What’s more, Psychic Awakening: Phoenix Rising includes loads of additional rules that will make this incredible new model even cooler! For example, you can swap out your Exarch’s War Shout ability with one of six different Exarch Powers that are exclusive to the Howling Banshee shrine. For example, if you’re expecting to face some elite infantry such Terminators or Custodian Guards, try taking Piercing Strike, which will enable you to forsake one of your 3 Attacks for hugely empowered killing blows.
In fact, if you want your Exarch to represent one of the most dedicated champions of their order, you can use the Exemplar of the Banshee Shrine Stratagem to augment them with an additional Exarch power without having to sacrifice War Shout!
There’s another crucial element to the new Howling Banshees kit – check out this variant Exarch.
Wait a minute… is that an Exarch without a mask on? Yes, indeed! The kit comes with a maskless head option for depicting an Ynnari Exarch, for they walk a very different path to their Craftworld cousins. We’ll have more on this incredible new kit and its variations soon.
The coolest thing is that this is just the first prophecy and miniature reveal for the Psychic Awakening!
