Specialist Games Warhammer Preview | Underworlds Direchasm Contents Revealed! Blood Bowl Refs! Warcry Content! Kill Team Teaser!

We’ve been treated to yet another online Warhammer Preview this afternoon! This one focuses on the more specialist games.

So what was discussed and show off?

Blood Bowl: Season 2

We’ve already seen the new models for the Humans and Orcs for the next season of Blood Bowl, however on today’s preview we got to see the full contents of the starter box, which includes the following content!

Yes! The starter box comes with both star players for the Humans and Orcs (Griff Oberwald and Varag Ghoul-Chewer) and referees! You can check out all of the images from the starter box below:

Alongside the release of the new box will be the Necromantic Horror team, of whom will have a Spike! magazine with all the rules they need.

Blood Bowl season 2 lands in December!


Next up is Warcry. With the latest starter box on the horizon, Catacombs, Games Workshop are releasing books for each of the Grand Alliances so that you can play Warcry with your current model collection. These books would also potentially inspire you to pick up a few models from a faction you don’t have and building a warband for them.

These books will feature all of the below content.

The Warhammer Community article offers a teaser than Catacombs, the next box for Warcry, will be announced as next weeks preorder.

Warhammer Underworlds: Direchasm

We’ve known for a little while now that the next season of Underworlds was going to be called Direchasm, and would feature Lumineth Realm-lords and Hedonites of Slaanesh warbands in the starter box.

Well today we finally got to see images of the warbands, and they look amazing! You can check out a preview of them below, as well as full shots of the content included in the Starter Box.

They are some of the coolest warbands we’ve seen for Underworlds so far.

Warhammer Storyforge

Whilst not a specilast game system, we were treated to another trailer showing off the really cool shows coming from the Storyforge teams. The trailer included unseen footage from some of the Hammer and Bolter animated shows, as well as the gritty Angels of Death. We also got to see a sneak peek at a new show, with Sin City vibes, called Interrogator. Still no word on a release date, or how the shows will be available.

And finally…

Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team

We had a brief teaser for something new coming for Kill Team. The trailer depicts a dead Assault Intercessor, before cutting to a Flayed One.

Could we be getting a new starter box for Kill Team perhaps? We’ll probably find out soon enough.

And that’s a wrap! If you would like to find out more about today’s previews, along with more images from each of the new starter sets check out this link.
