GW: Wochenvorschau mit Sororitas, Necromunda und mehr
Der kommenden Samstag steht bei Games Workshop im Zeichen des Glaubens, mit dem Codex Adepta Sororitas für Warhammer 40.000, dem House of Faith Buch für Necromunda und es kommt eine weitere Bande für Warhammer Underworlds.
Sunday Preview – Warhammer Skulls, Adepta Sororitas Pre-orders, and That Crab You Love
As those of you who play some of the phenomenal Warhammer video games on offer may know, every year Khorne himself graces us with his attention and rewards those who reap a hefty tally of skulls in his name. Well, it’s that time of year again, so put on your Slaying Hat,* and take a look at the details on the next Warhammer Skulls event.
* You… do have a Slaying Hat, right?
We also have a massive crop of pre-orders on the way next Saturday, including a High Lord of Terra, Redemptionists in the underhive, and an Idoneth Deepkin warband making their way to Direchasm.
The Skulls for the Skull Throne event returns this year in a new form AND with a fresh name to celebrate the tremendous, ever-growing host of video games set in the Mortal Realms and the 41st Millennium. The week-long Warhammer Skulls festival starts Thursday the 3rd of June at 6pm (BST), and you can join the celebrations as we kick off the event live on Twitch with a Showcase. Enjoy world premieres, exclusive first looks, details of special offers and free-to-keep video games, and new video game announcements.
We’re delighted to announce that Warhammer Skulls features on more platforms than ever before this year. As well as its usual home on Steam, the festival will appear on Xbox, Windows 10, GOG, and Oculus too. Plus, you can find cool deals and game updates over on Nintendo Switch, the Apple App Store, GeForce Now, and many more.
Once you’ve caught the main event, don’t go anywhere as our aftershow delves into the juicy details in search of more nuggets of exclusive info, which you can find here on Warhammer Community as soon as the showcase finishes.
Warhammer 40.000 – Adepta Sororitas
Raise your voice in praise of the Emperor, for His Sisters of Battle are coming next Saturday to cleanse the galaxy of heresy. Codex: Adepta Sororitas includes all of the rules and datasheets you need to bring the armoured fist of the Adeptus Ministorum to your battlefields, as well as page after page of in-depth background information, gorgeous photography, and stunning artwork. For the truly faithful, a luxury collector’s edition is also on the way to really show off your devotion to the Emperor.
Leading the Adepta Sororitas’ newcomers is the mighty Morvenn Vahl, Abbess Sanctorum and a High Lord of Terra. As you might expect from the supreme commander of the Battle Sisters, she cuts an imposing figure, and that golden warsuit of hers is no slouch in combat either.
Joining her in the thick of the fight are the Paragon Warsuits. These elite Sisters are clad in the pinnacle of power armour technology, allowing them to stand toe to toe with the biggest, toughest foes the Adepta Sororitas might face.
Not to be left out, the Celestian Sacresants load up their heavy power weapons and wade into close combat, equipped to soak up the heaviest of enemy attacks with their huge shields. They’re also dab hands at protecting your Characters, which comes in handy when the fighting gets up close and personal.
As if the other new units for the Adepta Sororitas aren’t scary enough, the terrifying Dogmata is here to keep a close eye on her fellow Sisters and galvanise them with her rousing hymns. That’s not to say she’s just a glorified motivational speaker, though – her mace of the righteous might be a ceremonial mark of office, but it’s also still a mace.
Rounding out the upcoming Adepta Sororitas pre-orders are a handy pack of datacards and fetching dice set, invaluable accessories for keeping the faith on the battlefield. We can’t guarantee the dice are blessed by the Emperor, but feel free to thank Him whenever you roll a six.
Necromunda – House of Faith
Set the underhive ablaze with House of Faith, the essential companion for the gangs of House Cawdor. Packed full of lore, rules, and more, it’s the definitive tome for would-be saviours of the hive city’s credence (or just fans of masks and fire).
Included in the book are rules for the ruthless, uncompromising Redemptionists, fanatics who make even the particularly pious members of House Cawdor keep one eye open in case their faith is found wanting.
Just like their spiritual compatriots in the Adepta Sororitas, the House of Faith is also getting its own dice set and pack of Cawdor Gang Tactics Cards to make your time in the underhive that bit more convenient. Less time referencing rules means more time burning witches, after all.
Warhammer Underworlds – Elathain’s Soulraid
The Idoneth Deepkin are coming to Warhammer Underworlds in the form of Elathain’s Soulraid. We have it on good authority that you’re all quite fond of the crab, but don’t forget to keep an eye on those soul-hungry aelves and their fishy companion when they go up for pre-order next weekend.
