It's all going on for Warhammer 40,000!
It’s the perfect time to be a Warhammer 40,000 fan, as new releases and information seem to be cropping up everywhere. Of course, we have the 9th Edition coming soon, but that’s not all.
Firstly, Games Workshop has confirmed it will be releasing information as to what will be in the Starter Box for Warhammer 40,000 this weekend. It’s toted to be the biggest and most impressive Warhammer 40,000 box ever. It’ll officially reveal the latest of Primaris Lieutenants, and some Necrons too.
This does raise the question, as many of you did when the news of it was released, as to the price point – bigger and better does often mean we’ll be looking at more and more expensive. Hopefully, this weekend we’ll find out why it’ll be worth it!
In addition, we now know that the table sizes for Warhammer 40,000 will be changing. There’s four recommended sizes of battle Combat Patrol, Incursion, Strike Force and Onslaught, which tell you how many detachments (one to four in the order listed), the battle size (one to four hours in the order listed), and the minimum battlefield size. For Combat Patrol and Incursion, that’s 44” x 30”, for Strike Fore it’s 44” x 60”, and for Onslaught it’s 44” x 90”. It comments that most dining room tables should accommodate Strike Force, a measurement of value that really should be included in dining room table sales adverts.
Not only that, but there’s also been some amazing new artwork shown, which are for the new rulebook. There are scenes from across the Imperium, but also “an abundance of glorious, grim, dark art” to come within the rulebook.
And of course, we talked about the exciting new book series coming soon.
All in all, there’s a lot to see for Warhammer fans, and we’re excited to see what happens this weekend!
