Gen Con – A Shadowy New Season of Warhammer Underworlds Revealed

Games Workshop Gen Con – A Shadowy New Season Of Warhammer Underworlds Revealed 1

The doors have opened at Gen Con 2021, one of the biggest tabletop gaming events in the world. As the crowds pour in, they’re getting a first glimpse at the future of Warhammer.

Obviously, we couldn’t let them have ALL the fun, so we’ll be here over the next few days sharing the massive reveals with you, and we’ve got some really BIG things to show you.

So grab a torch as we’re kicking things off with a peek at the shadowy core set for the new season of Warhammer Underworlds.

Let’s take a deeper dive to discover what’s coming in the new season.

Games Workshop Gen Con – A Shadowy New Season Of Warhammer Underworlds Revealed 2

Harrowdeep is the biggest ever core set for Warhammer Underworlds. With all of the boards, cards, tokens, and dice you need to get started, it’s the ideal way to jump into the new season.

Wait, did we mention that the two warbands in the box are new and incredible? Reflecting the matchups in Dominion and the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Starter Sets, Harrowdeep pits Kruleboyz orruks against the Stormcast Eternals. Each of these stunning models is a classic example of what makes their faction unique.

Emerging from the swamps are Da Kunnin’ Krew…

Think that they’re just going to be kunnin’? Don’t worry – if those extra nasty weapons are anything to go by, they’re plenty brutal too. Just look at the gnarly details in these models. We’re not going anywhere near that grabby stick – and caw, check out that raven.

Facing off against them are Xandire’s Truthseekers, a warband dispatched on a righteous mission by the God-King himself.

We don’t know exactly what Sigmar has sent them to do, but we know it’s going to be bad news for Da Kunnin’ Krew and any other warband that gets in their way.

This is the first Thunderstrike unit that we’ve seen in Warhammer Underworlds, and the dynamic poses of the models show just how ready they are to bring Sigmar’s light to the depths of Ulgu. The miniatures are absolutely packed with glorious details – did you see the celestial boar on that fella’s armour?

If you also enjoy venturing out of the underworlds into the wider Mortal Realms, Harrowdeep has you covered – these models come with rules for Warhammer Age of Sigmar too.

Games Workshop Gen Con – A Shadowy New Season Of Warhammer Underworlds Revealed 11

After two years of battling it out in the shadow of the living mountain known as Beastgrave, Warhammer Underworlds: Harrowdeep moves the action to a new shadowy location. Deep beneath the seas in Ulgu lies a  forgotten dungeon where darkness reigns supreme. There are even rules to reflect fighting in the Realm of Shadows that can shroud parts of the battlefield in gloom.

The upcoming season also introduces a new play style that lets you join in the fun straight out of the box. The new Rivals format makes Warhammer Underworlds more accessible than ever by using pre-made decks – you’ll be able to pick up a warband and jump straight in, safe in the knowledge that your deck is just as good as your opponents.

For players that enjoy toiling over the creation of the perfect deck, don’t worry – the Championship format isn’t going anywhere. Rivals is just an additional way to play that makes Warhammer Underworlds even more fun for everyone.*

Speaking of deckbuilding, Warhammer Underworlds: Harrowdeep also includes a whole host of new cards. Along with decks for the two warbands, there are universal cards and some Grand Alliance-specific ones too, which open up all sorts of new ways to construct your decks.

We’ll have more information about Warhammer Underworlds: Harrowdeep as we get closer to its release.

* Maybe we should call the new season Warhammer Funderworlds.

Gen Con – This New Kill Team Box Is the Perfect Way To Get Started

Games Workshop Gen Con – This New Kill Team Box Is The Perfect Way To Get Started 1
It’s Day One of Gen Con, and we’ve been busy enjoying the fun and treating all those who’ve attended to some exclusive reveals. Well, now it’s your turn, as we’re going to show you one of the new boxed sets that’s been on display today at the event – the Kill Team Starter Set.
Games Workshop Gen Con – This New Kill Team Box Is The Perfect Way To Get Started 2
This beauty brings you all of Kill Team’s key elements to make learning the principles of the game easy. In addition to a double-sided card gameboard and a variety of Orky scatter terrain, it also contains the full complement of Kill Team miniatures for the Orks and Death Korps of Krieg.

The Kill Team Starter Set is the easiest way to learn the game, as it’s been designed specifically for new players. It comes with a Recruit Edition booklet – a 56-page how-to-play guide including a series of tutorial missions – as well as a compact version of the game’s full Core Book and all the tokens you’ll need to play.

What’s more, this set is a great-value way to get started with skirmish battles in the 41st Millennium, saving you money on picking up all the individual parts separately.

No, we weren’t teasing you – by popular request, the Death Korps of Krieg and Ork miniatures from Kill Team will indeed soon be available separately (around the same time that the Starter Set hits the shelves).

Gen Con – T’au Pathfinders Rumble With All-new Novitiate Sisters in the First Kill Team Expansion

Games Workshop Gen Con – T’au Pathfinders Rumble With All New Novitiate Sisters In The First Kill Team Expansion 1

This year Warhammer is back at Gen Con, the longest-running tabletop gaming event in North America, and we’re already in the convention mood with a chilling new season of Warhammer Underworlds and the reveal of Kill Team’s next starter set.

You may remember from our recent roadmap that Kill Team: Octarius is only the first major release for the brand new edition of the game, and now seems like an excellent time to lift the lid on the upcoming expansion.

Games Workshop Gen Con – T’au Pathfinders Rumble With All New Novitiate Sisters In The First Kill Team Expansion 2

Kill Team: Chalnath leaves the mayhem of the Octarius Sector for a maligned corner of Imperium Nihilus, where benighted worlds trapped behind the Great Rift lose faith in the Emperor and turn to xenos allies for salvation.

A wayward Adepta Sororitas fleet from a passing War of Faith finds itself in the Vedik System largely by chance, discovering a core world rife with xenos corruption. Among the kill teams deployed to the surface are bands of Novitiates, zealous Battle Sisters in training looking to prove themselves worthy of advancement.

These lighter-armed and armoured teams train aspirants for many of the Adepta Sororitas’ minor Orders, and they carry a wide variety of holy relics into battle.

This is a totally new kit for a Battle Sisters unit we’ve never seen before. As with the Ork Kommandos and the Death Korps of Krief before them, the Novitiates have been designed specifically for games of Kill Team, and they come with immense flexibility in terms of loadout and posing.

After being chased out of the system, the T’au return with a fleet of their own. Kill teams of specialised Pathfinders form the vanguard, using new equipment and advanced technology to undermine the Imperium’s military strength.

Pathfinders are experts at infiltration and reconnaissance. They carry high-powered weapons – which they use to spring ambushes – while drones provide accurate support at the hands of a specialist controller.

This is an update to the existing T’au Pathfinder kit, which comes with a comprehensive upgrade sprue to add a great number of options to an already-flexible squad. There are new heads, weaponry, upgrades, and all the gadgets a high-tech team of incredibly skilled operators could need.

As well as being perfect for skirmish games in the far future, you’ll also be able to deploy both of these units in full games of Warhammer 40,000.

Speaking of which…

Kill Team: Chalnath contains a full complement of Imperial ruins to fill your killzone, with plenty of Vantage Points and Obscuring terrain.

Inside the box, you’ll find a Rules Manual that includes nine new missions, covering everything from broadcasting propaganda to launching missile strikes against your opponents. The book also contains expanded rules for both squads in the box, with a whole host of bespoke Strategic Ploys, Battle Honours, and more – like we saw for the two factions in the Kill Team: Octarius launch box.

We’ll have more intel on Kill Team: Chalnath shortly.

  • Ich mag die neuen Orks und SCE und fange jetzt mit KT an, aber das gezeigte löst bei mir nichts aus.
    Wenn KT bei uns aktiv gespielt wird und Spaß macht, wird die Erweiterung gekauft, mal schauen.

    Ich hoffe für Blood Bowl wird mehr als ein Starspieler gezeigt.

  • Okay… Der erste Underworld Starter seit drei Jahren, der gekauft wird, wenn der Preis nicht völlig absurd ist. Die beiden Fraktionen mag ich.

    KT schaut auch spannend aus, aber damit fange ich nicht an.

  • Die Tau gehen gar nicht. Wieder nur ein paar neue Köpfe wie bei den Imperialen drauf‘ geklatscht, um das Zeug als neu zu verkaufen. Wie alt sind die Modelle jetzt? 15 Jahre? 18 Jahre? Find‘ ich nicht in Ordnung und wird deshalb auch nicht gekauft!

    • Der Bausatz dürfte von 2013 sein, ist also noch recht modern. Sieht man auch daran dass der Rahmen schon recht dicht ist, aber die Minis trotzdem nich modular aufgebaut sind. Hätte ich schade gefunden, wenn der schon OOP gegangen wäre.

      • Sorry, vergessen.. wo sind den mal die versprochenen Verbündeten der Tau, liest man ja immer…. wo sind sie….!!

      • hm…ich habe die Tau Pathfinder, und die sind nicht Monopose und zumindest mit ein paar Waffenoptionen ausgestattet, also was meinst Du mit nicht Modular in dem Fall?

    • Finde ich auch, nichts neues kann ich so auch selber bauen! 》wo sind neue Kroots!!
      Die im NK auch mal was reissen, mit erbeuteten Waffen usw.
      Schade daraus wird nix!!

  • Ich bin ein großer Fan der Kruleboyz Krieger und hatte mich auf die WHU Jungs gefreut. Die hier gefallen mir allerdings so gar nicht, ich denke das liegt an den Helmen und Waffen 🤔.

    • Nachtrag: Gleiches gilt für die Schwestern. So ne Einheit hätten sich auch gleich in den neuen Dex packen können. Die sind echt gut geworden und eignen sich aufgrund ihres recht mittelalterlichen Designs schon fast als Schwestern für Mortheim.

  • Die Tau-Köpfe und Klimbim find ich gang interessant. Wäre cool, wenn ich meine alten (noch unbemalten) Tau etwas aufpeppen könnte… 🙂 Aber mal schaun wie teuer das wird… 🙁

  • Weiß gar nicht, was manche zu bzw. gegen die Tau-Modelle haben: die sind komplett neu, nicht nur neue Köpfe für den Späherteam-Bausatz. Waffen sind neu (doppelläufig), Equipment ist neu, Posen sind neu. Schwestern finde ich auch genial und ich hoffe, dass für beide auch Datenblätter zur Verwendung in 40k zur Verfügung stehen.
    Und apropos 40k: Dass es die Kollegen des Todeskorps von Krieg nun (in absehbarer Weise) schon in einer separaten Box geben wird, öffnet sich GW extrem eine eigene, weitere Goldgrube – bei den vielen Fans der Truppe und den Wünschen, Imperiale Regimenter abseits der Cadianer und Catachaner aufstellen zu wollen. Da kann man schon mal richtig viel Infanterie vorarbeiten… 😀

    • auch wenn ich deine Grundsätzliche begeisterung teile, nach GW aussage sind dietau nicht ganz neu, aber bekomen einen extra Gussrahmen mit Waffen / Armen / Köpfen. Was allerdings angenehm zum optischen eindruck einer gewissen Vielfalt beiträgt.
      Zuerst dachte ich, da ich schon Tau Pathfinder für ein Fireteam in KT habe brauche ich das nicht, aber zunehmend gefällt mir der Gedanke eines quasi elitäreren Pathfinder Teams, dass ich auch noch stellen könnte, neben meinen „normalen“ evtl mit Farben einer anderen septe experimentieren oder die „harten jungs“ in meinem eigentlichen Schema, mal schauen.
      bei den ssters gleicher gedanke, habe iher genug zum bauen und bemalen für eigentlich alels aus dem Kompendium, aber das dedizierte team wäre schon cool. einzig ob ich bis zum einzelrelease warte oder nochmal eine Big Box samt terrain nehme weiß ich nicht, hängt auch davon ab, ob die wichtigen infos sich auch in den einzelboxen finden.
