Grimdark take on dice-building series due out next summer
Warhammer 40,000 Dice Masters, the upcoming addition to Eric Lang and Mike Elliott’s dice-building game originally teased in October, has its first details.
The new spin-off series will launch with a campaign box called Battle for Ultramar, ICv2 reports, which will include Ultramarines and Deathguard armies, plus the basic action dice, sidekick dice and dice bags needed to play.
Some of the dozen or so named characters in the set will include Primarch Roboute Guilliman and Chief Librarian Tigurius on the Ultramarine side, battling against Typhus and Mortarion of the Deathguard.
Releasing alongside the main box will be two team pack expansions, adding the Ork and Space Wolves factions into to the mix with 16 dice and 24 cards apiece.
Players can build their team from a single faction, or combine different sides – Warhammer 40,000 Dice Masters will also be compatible with other Dice Masters entries, opening the doors for even more mash-up action.
As well as some extra characters, the Space Wolves: Sons of Russ pack will include a Venerable Dreadnought mech, while the Orks’ ‘WAAAGH!’ line-up includes Boyz and Warbikers.
The main box will be $40 (£30) in the US, with the team packs $13 (£10). The first wave of Warhammer 40,000 Dice Masters releases are due out in July 2018.
