Next Week – Warhammer 40k 9th Edition, Indomitus, Chapter Approved and Battlezones
Next week the eagerly anticipated Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus Launch Box is up for pre order alongside a host of other goodies! We have been checking out this new set over the last few days so make sure to check out our Unboxing and Full Review!
Here’s all the details from Warhammer Community!
Indomitus is a phenomenal set. The culmination of some of the best work our miniatures, rules, lore and art teams have ever made, this box takes everything that makes Warhammer 40,000 incredible and puts it in one place. Two huge collections of amazing, brand-new models are packaged with the full Core Book – everything a 40K hobbyist needs to hit the ground running in the new edition.
Indomitus is limited, but, in expectation of high demand, we’ve made absolutely loads of boxes. As an additional measure to ensure that every faithful fan gets their copy, we’ve limited orders to 6 sets. So, if you want to have over 5,000 points of new Necrons on launch day, we’ve got your back, while also giving you a better chance at securing your set.
The Core Book
Warhammer 40,000 rulebooks are treasured tomes. They’re not just repositories of rules, but rich grimoires that players keep forever. We bet you still remember your first! The Core Book is your complete guide to the new edition, containing reams and reams of incredible lore and art that bring the Era Indomitus to life. Plus, it contains the rules – and we mean a LOT of rules. As well as the basic tenets required to play a game, you’ll find expansion content for open, matched and narrative play, along with tips and army showcases to help you get started. A version of the Core Book is included in the Indomitus boxed set, making this a great tome to pick up if you’re splitting the set with a friend!
The Limited Edition Core Book
It’s not every day you launch a new edition of the world’s best sci-fi wargame. To celebrate the dawn of a new era for Warhammer 40,000, our team has produced a gorgeous limited edition featuring cloth binding, gilt edges and some truly stunning cover art. Strictly limited to only 2,000 copies, this is your way to commemorate this monumental moment in Warhammer history.
Open War Cards
Open War Cards are the secret weapon for gamers who are hunting for awesome, fresh missions that’ll both challenge and delight. Draw up your cards, randomise your missions and ensure no game is ever the same with countless possible combinations!
Chapter Approved, or to give it it’s glorious full title, “Warhammer 40,000 Chapter Approved: Grand Tournament 2020 Mission Pack and Munitorum Field Manual” is your gateway to awesome matched play games. We’ve re-engineered Chapter Approved this year to be purely about matched play, giving you a host of new content for Grand Tournaments, as well as new missions Incursion and Strike Force engagements. Additionally, Chapter Approved comes with the 2020 Munitorum Field Manual, a massive update that brings every army’s points into line with the new edition of the game.
Every army tells a story – what will yours be? The Crusade Journal is designed to be the ideal companion to your journey through narrative play in the 41st Millennium. As you play Crusade games, your forces will grow, change and develop, and this journal will let you track them, making for both an invaluable reference book, and a permanent record of your games.
Battlezone: Manufactorum – Battlefield
Get your table game-ready in minutes with these durable card battlefield tiles! Simply unfold and combine, and you’ve got an appropriately war-torn place to fight, particularly when combined with some scenery. This set is perfect for playing Combat Patrol or Incursion games, but grab two of them, and you’ll have a large enough play area for a 2000 point Strike Force game!
Also available at launch is a selection of essential gaming accessories – a combat gauge for those key mini-measurements, and a themed carrying case! These will only be available while stocks last, so make sure to grab them while you can.
Your Phalanx Made Easy
Love the new Szarekhan Dynasty Necron colour scheme but don’t know how to replicate it yourself? Some superb new paints are entering the range next weekend, making getting your legion Battle Ready easy. From rich metallics to vibrant technicals, these paints aren’t just for Necron players but anyone looking to upgrade their collection. We’ll also be releasing a spray version of Runelord Brass later in the year – so keep an eye out for it!
Indomitus: The Novel
This weekend also has the Indomitus novel by Gav Thorpe, available in hardback, eBook and MP3 audiobook editions. Gav is the legendary loremaster behind some of your favourite armies and a number of incredibly popular Black Library books covering the Horus Heresy and beyond – we can’t wait to read his take on this new era of battle. The English-language version of Indomitus will be also available in two limited editions, letting you choose a copy that matches your favourite faction – Space Marines or Necrons.
Books from Black Library
While not strictly Indomitus related, Black Library has some other cracking releases out next weekend, including a new anthology of Warhammer 40,000 stories in hardback and two novels from Warhammer Age of Sigmar now in paperback.
We’ll be helping you count down to Indomitus next week with our last daily Warhammer 40,000 shows on Twitch, plus a series of in-depth How To Play videos and more! Find out when to tune in with our full timetable.
