GW: Wochenvorschau und Cursed City Auftragsfertigung
Kommenden Samstag kehren aus den Tiefen der Meere die Idoneth Deepkin in die Reiche der Sterblichen zurück, während die Fyreslayers sich ebenfalls den Konflikten von Warhammer Age of Sigmar stellen, für Blood Bowl gibt es Waldelfen Zubehör und Warhammer Quest: Cursed City kehrt als Auftragsfertigung zurück.
Sunday Preview – Nautical Aelves and Fiery Duardin Sweep the Mortal Realms
Not so long ago, the Idoneth Deepkin and Fyreslayers were at each other’s throats in Fury of the Deep – but next week they’ll be diving into pre-orders together with two new battletomes, as well as faction-themed dice, handy reference cards, and newly available heroes.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar
Battletome: Idoneth Deepkin
First up are everyone’s favourite fish-wrangling aelves, the Idoneth Deepkin. Shunned by their sorcerous creator, these aquatic outcasts conduct bloody soul-raids to keep their waning civilisation alive. Battletome: Idonethfeatures all the lore and rules you need to bring them to the tabletop, including traits for different Enclaves such as the sea turtle corralling Nautilar, as well as Path to Glory rules for conducting a grand campaign of soul-raids.
The battletome is also available in a limited collector’s edition with a soft-touch cover and gold foil blocking to show off that sublime artwork, as well as gold gilt page edges and a red ribbon marker.
Idoneth Deepkin Dice and Warscroll Cards
Let opponents know of your proud Akhelian descent with a pack of Idoneth Deepkin dice. These aqua-gem dice are styled after the ethersea, with white pips and an Idoneth logo on the 6.
Plus, make sure you’ve got all your eels and allopexes in a row with a pack of Warscroll Cards that make referencing your units a doddle, even in the midst of battle. It also contains tokens for each of your primary abilities, letting you focus on the bigger picture.
From foam to flames, Battletome: Fyreslayers is blazing right out of the gate, bringing a whole host of changes and improvements to these short-tempered soldiers of fortune. This book is full of background and rules for fielding Grimnir’s chosen sons, giving you all the tools to make the most of your muscular mercenaries and mighty Magmadroths, including Path to Glory rules for filling your vaults with the gleaming spoils of war.
You’ll be able to get it in a limited collector’s edition with a soft-touch cover and gold foil blocking. With its gold gilt page edges and red ribbon marker, this book is a treasure fit for any magmahold.
Auric Runefather on Magmadroth
Magmadroths are the scaly offspring of Vulcatrix, Mother of Salamanders. Grimnir slew that terrifying god-beast at the cost of his own life, so it’s fitting these volcanic monsters are now born and bred to fight alongside the Fyreslayers.
Now you can pick up your own outside of Start Collecting! Fyreslayers, and build them as a Runefather, Runeson, or Runesmiter. That’s especially useful if you fancy running a whole army of Magmadroths, as lizard-mounted Runesons are now Battleline units for the Lofnir lodge.
Fyreslayer Dice and Warscroll Cards
Hollering a duardin battle cry isn’t the only way you can show your allegiance to the Fyreslayers in your games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar. You can also opt to represent yourself with these fiery orange dice – no less attention-grabbing, but perhaps a bit easier on the ears.
Make sure you pick up a pack of Warscroll Cards, too, so you can tell your Hearthguard Berzerkers from your Auric Hearthguard in the raging heat of battle. It’s also full of tokens to track your prayers and abilities, such as your ur-gold runes
While the Mortal Realms are getting scorched and drenched, the gridirons of Blood Bowl are in full bloom thanks to a trifecta of Wood Elf releases.
Most Blood Bowl pitches are some variety of mucky, from the vomit-inducing stink of a Nurgle game field to the boot-churned grave dirt of an Undead stadium. By comparison, the Wood Elf home ground is quite pleasant and welcoming – at least, until the mystical pollen floating around drives players to acts of violence.
Thankfully, the autumnal waning in the second half of the game – and the reverse of this double-sided game board – gives everyone a chance to heal up.
The Wood Elf Team Card Pack will help you blossom on the pitch with reference cards for the team’s Players, Star Players, Special Plays, and more. Throw in a set of themed dice, and you’ll have Orion himself cheering at you from the stands – and staring up at your opponent each time you roll a 6.
Cursed City Returns this March – Made to Order For Two Weeks
In fact, you’ll be able to order the full game on a Made to Order basis from Saturday the 5th of March. There’ll be a two-week window to place your orders, and this time stock won’t run out – everyone who orders a copy during those two weeks is guaranteed to get one.
What is Warhammer Quest: Cursed City?
This wildly popular instalment in the Warhammer Quest series is the biggest to date, with an incredible 60 Citadel miniatures – that’s 8 unique heroes, 42 undead enemies, and 10 morbid objective markers for them to battle over.
You’ll also find a variety of gorgeous, modular board tiles to ensure each adventure into the haunted city streets unfolds differently, aided by fiendish cards, striking tokens, and ominous trackers that put a twist in the tale for every game. All that, plus a bespoke 40-page rulebook and a 56-page quest book with plenty of adventures for you to stick your fangs into.
The atmospheric setting and grim narrative are perfect for fans of Warhammer Age of Sigmar who love a gothic story, stunning miniatures, and exciting gameplay. And if you’re a Soulblight Gravelords enthusiast, the undead residents of Ulfenkarn will provide you with the core of your army in a box.
You don’t need to be an existing fan to play, though – with its own self-contained rules and quests, Cursed City is a perfect tabletop experience for up to four players, whether they’re looking for a board game fix or just want a fun evening of staking vampires. The co-operative nature of the game means everyone can win!*
This rerelease of Cursed City will be Made to Order, so those who missed out the first time around can guarantee they’ll receive a copy first, this time. Sales will be open for two weeks, from the 5th March to the 20th of March. Every order placed within this timeframe will be fulfilled, and the game will cost the same as it did on its first launch day.
Most folks should receive their copy by May, though the wait may be a little longer for certain regions.
Don’t think you’ll be able to grab a copy this March? There’s no need to worry – Cursed City will be receiving a full relaunch later this year, along with some juicy new expansions. Whether you pick up the box now or take your time to prepare for Ulfenkarn’s salvation, there are many more creepy quests and frightful foes waiting in the game’s future,** as Radukar’s bloodthirsty ambitions cause the streets to run even redder.
* Or get horribly slaughtered together, for a heartfelt group commiseration session.
** Just ask Cleona Zeitengale – she was right the first time…
