GW: Wochenvorschau mit viel Chaos
Der kommenden Samstag steht bei Games Workshop ganz im Zeichen der Anhänger des Chaos, mit einem großen Schwung an Slaves to Darkness Neuheiten für Warhammer Age of Sigmar, außerdem bringt Forge World eine neue Variante des Primarchen Horus auf dem Höhepunkt der Horus Heresy.
Sunday Preview – The Slaves to Darkness Pour Forth Across the Mortal Realms
It’s the first month of Warhammer releases in 2023, and things are kicking off with a bang – a new season of Matched Play is unleashed upon Warhammer Age of Sigmar, while Archaon and Be’lakor muster new Slaves to Darkness, and the Warmaster steps foot onto the battlefields of Horus Heresy in a terrifying new form.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar
General’s Handbook – Pitched Battles 2022-23 Season 2
Galletian Champions take centre stage in the new season of Matched Play with the General’s Handbook – Pitched Battles 2022-23 Season 2. This 96-page spiral-bound book contains a new Battlepack, which focuses on super-charging your unmounted heroes. Alongside a slate of fundamental changes, there are new battleplans, grand strategies, and battle tactics to mix up your games. This is a must-have for anyone who enjoys Matched Play events in Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
Battletome: Slaves to Darkness
A dark storm coalesces over the Mortal Realms as Battletome: Slaves to Darkness arrives. This tome is 128 pages of Slaves to Darkness goodness, covering all the lore and rules you need to know to field your own dark legions under the watchful Eye of the Gods.
This battletome* will also be available in a beautiful limited edition version, which features gold gilt page edges, a soft touch cover, and a red ribbon bookmark.
Vanguard: Slaves to Darkness
Raise a warhost and run roughshod over the Mortal Realms with this Vanguard box, which contains 17 miniatures including a Chaos Lord, 10 iconic Chaos Warriors in full multi-part glory, five Chaos Knights with the new upgrade sprue, and a chariot which can be pulled by horses or a savage gorebeast for line-breaking charges.
The grand prize at the end of the Path to Glory is to be transfigured and granted immortality by becoming a Daemon Prince. This kit is a true banquet of options, including a range of heads with one for each of the Chaos Gods, a choice of weapons, and more. It even transcends game systems, with wargear options to use this unholy champion in games of Warhammer 40,000.
Chaos Lord on Karkadrak
With the new Vanguard box replacing the old Start Collecting! box, the Chaos Lord on Karkadrak has been unchained and now roams free, grazing his reptilian beast on the corpses of his slaughtered foes. This bruiser is a solid choice for any Slaves to Darkness list.
Eternus, Blade of The First Prince
Archaon’s prime shock troops are known as the Varanguard. From this elite cadre his eternal rival Be’lakor has plucked Eternus, and imbued him with the souls of Stormcast Eternals, creating a champion for his own armies. This kit builds Eternus, Blade of the First Prince, or a generic Chaos Lord on Daemonic Mount.
Exalted Hero of Chaos
With the action in Gallet favouring heroes in the new General’s Handbook, daemonic mounts are out, and comfy boots are in. This murderous champion will make an ideal pairing with a unit of Chaos Chosen in a Galletian Command detachment.
Chaos Chosen are elite warriors who love nothing more than using their soul splitter weapons to free their foes from the burden of the mortal coil. They are the hammer, crushing all before them.
Chaos Warriors are the iconic mortal bruisers of the forces of Chaos. Imbued with dark blessings and clad in hellforged armour, these imposing warriors march to battle with hand weapons or ensorceled halberds, hacking away at foes from behind their hulking runeshields.
There are fewer sights as terrifying as Chaos Knights thundering across the horizon, lances down, ready to skewer their foes. This standalone release comes with an upgrade sprue including command options to adorn your Knights with appropriately terrifying accessories such as banners, instruments, and champions’ paraphernalia.
Slaves to Darkness armies feature no shortage of ways to pulverise their opponents, but if you’re looking for a unit with just a little extra oomph, the savage Ogroid Theridons are just the ticket. These hulking brutes tap into their bestial nature to lay their enemies low.
Slaves to Darkness Dice Set
Add the final piece to your dark panoply with this Slave to Darkness Dice Set. Consisting of 20 dice cast in black and white and featuring an eight-pointed star of chaos on the six face, they’re perfect for invoking the gods to bless your warriors with gifts, rather than spawndom.
Warhammer The Horus Heresy
Horus Lupercal has drunk deep of the power granted by his dark patrons to become Horus Ascended. The next release in the Horus Heresy Character Series is the Primarch of the Sons of Horus, the Emperor’s traitorous Warmaster, at the peak of his powers.
This mighty warrior is outfitted with the Serpent’s Scales, Warmaster’s talon, and Worldbreaker and comes with an optional scenic base that is covered in the skeletal detritus of war. He will be available globally from the Forge World webstore, but for those of you in the UK, Europe, and the USA he will be on sale on the Games Workshop webstore too.
White Dwarf Issue 484
The first instalment of White Dwarf for 2023 is a bumper issue full of Boarding Actions content that sheds new light on this game mode and introduces missions and rules to fight battles on a warp-touched space hulk. There are also plenty of extra rules and articles covering your other favourite Warhammer games in this action packed issue.
* These Battletomes are the same as the Army Box version, apart from the cover, and the day-one errata applies to both the standard and limited editions.
