Warzone Pandorax is a clash between Abaddon and the Chaos Space Marines against the Imperial Forces, the Dark Angels, Grey Knights, and the Imperial Guard. Lots of fun are in these formations including, the Brass Scorpion of Khorne and the Khorne Tower of Skulls. Lots of fun.
Pandorax was released only the collectors edition release of Apocalypse. So most of us have to wait for several months until the next Warzone comes out. In that spirit, I thought we could take a look at each formation in the warzone, and get an overview of what the unit can do.
