Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Fourth Edition release date plans!

Some exciting news from Cubicle 7 today – Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 4th Edition will be out mid-2018!

Check out the full post below!

Release Date
There has been an amazing amount of excitement around Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Fourth Edition – we’re at the beginning of the journey but it’s already been a tremendous project thanks to the energy and enthusiasm of all the Warhammer fans we’ve been talking to since the project was announced. Thanks to you all for being awesome, and thanks for your patience waiting for news!

Design lead Dominic McDowall is on hand to tell us about the game’s development:

“The initial plan was to make some small updates to the awesome second edition, and that would mean we would be able to release the game in 2017. We’re all huge fans of the first and second editions of WFRP, and we wanted to take the game back to those roots.

“When I got into the guts of the game I started seeing more opportunities to add in some of the things we’ve learned over the years. This more creative direction meant a longer development phase. Games Workshop are extremely supportive of us taking the time we need to make WFRP Fourth Edition the very best game it can be, and so that’s what we did. I’m very excited about the way things have come together!

The release date of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Fourth Edition will be set for mid-2018, with a specific date to be set in a few months. Thank you for your patience while we invest the time to make the best game we can.”

We have some exciting events planned around the release date, so stay tuned for the latest new on those!

Also they unveiled some of the new cover art for the core rulebook and starter set!

Myphitic Blight-Hauler – Easy to Build kit on the way!

Any other Death Guard fans missing the Myphitic Blight-Hauler from the Death Guard release? The plucky little daemon engine has some firepower and a save buff for nearby units making it a must have in lists!

 

Well fear not as Kobrakei from over on Bolter and Chainsword has caught wind of the kit finally arriving in the form of an Easy to Build kit glimpsed in a “what next” leaflet in their local Games Workshop!

Coming alongside it are a Lord of Contagion accompanied by some Plague Marine guards

For Primaris Marines we will also get an Easy to Build Redemptor Dread  and Easy to Build Aggressors!

 

Hopefully these will all be out in the coming weeks!
