Warhammer 40k Conquest is new game from Fantasy Flight Games. I am a big fan of many of their games, and this one is definitely on my list to check out and possible get for my month Game Nights that I host. Conquest is a 2 player card game where you will try to capture planets to control the sector.



As a fan of the quality of Fantasy Flight's board games, this will be eagerly awaited as it is not set to be released until the third quarter of this year. Here is a link to the games information on Fantasy Flight Games.

Deep in the Ultima Segmentum, precious resources and lost artifacts have been found in the recently explored Traxis sector. In order to secure these treasures, the Imperium of Man wages a bloody conflict, desperately holding back tides of traitors, Daemons, and Xenos alike. The foul forces of Chaos plunder and corrupt, furthering their own goals of conquest and madness. Meanwhile, alien races of all kinds build their own empires, casting out all who would challenge their dominance. Blood will be spilt. Champions will rise. The only certainty is that there can be only one victor.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Warhammer 40,000: Conquest, a brand new Living Card Game® that casts two players into a head-to-head battle for the Traxis sector!

In every game, you take the part of a warlord, leading your armies into battle against your opponent in a bid to claim glorious victory. Even as you lead your bravest warriors into battle, you must plan for the future, establishing a presence on planets before the tides of war consume them in blood and fire. You must conquer the Traxis sector by strength of arms, for in the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war.

  1. A Warhammer 40,000 TCG? I'm sure past experiance leads to the conclusion this is going to end well X3

    1. Actually, it's the LCG format, so you don't have to chase rares and you already know what's going to come in a booster pack when you buy it so you can build your deck based off what you want and not on random chance.

      The Star Wars LCG is a lot of fun, so I hope that the 40k one will be just as good.

    2. @Chris - Not what I meant.

      There's been a Warhammer 40,000 CCG in the past. It did not do very well. And that is probably understating things.

    3. Ah, sorry about that,. I was only vaguely aware of that game so my mind went straight to the TCG portion of your sentence.

    4. FFG has a really good reputation for making solid, fun games. X-Wing came out of them, after all, so I have decent hopes for this.

    5. And the buzzword here is LCG. It's a FAR superior format to the CCG format such as magic.

      Since each month a cycle pack comes out, and about one ever 6 monthsa deluxe expansion, everyone has the same cards. This makes the game more about skill rather then Bank accounts. Also, this is by FFG, of you don't know who they are, then your not much of a gamer, because they are a giant in the gaming industry.

      I play star wars LCG competitively and the netrunner LCG casually and both are amazing games.

      Without going into much detail, I've pretty much given up on table top 40k after 15+ year's of playing. I love the fluff and universe so to be able to get back into the universe with incredible new original art without spending months painting and 4 hours playing a single game, I'm totally stoked for this!!

    6. @kevin - "Also, this is by FFG, of you don't know who they are, then your not much of a gamer, because they are a giant in the gaming industry."

      And you lost me. I know perfectly well who FFG are. I've also been on the receiving end of their Starcraft tabletop game.

      And yet people claim 40K is littered with convoluted rules that make no sense X3

    7. And you lost me.... Because if your talking about the StarCraft game that came out 7 years ago, that is a far cry to the company today. On top of which, I don't care what company you are, your going to have some bad products from time to time. Who knows, maybe this will be terrible, but with Eric Lang as the designer and the quality of games FFG puts out today, I'd say there is a really high probability that this is successful, as is nearly all their other LCGs.

    8. @Kevin - Possibly, I don't know, all I know is that the simplest of actions for that nightmare required a spreadsheet.

  2. I love fantasy flight! Their h.p Lovecraft games never fail to be enjoyable! But I think I'll pass on this game. Tired of the ultra pansies.

    1. They're just one faction, you'll also be able to play as Eldar, Dark Eldar, Orks, Tau, Chaos, and Guard. Looks like the base game will be Ultramarines but I have to imagine further boosters will feature other chapters.

    2. It's too bad GW couldn't learn a thing or two about FFG's ally chart here.

      Delete
    3. what, and allow orks to ally to guard? Theirs doesn't make sense either...

      Delete
    4. Yeah, the IG/Ork alliance is...perplexing, to say the least.

      Delete
    5. I'm sure the ally chart for this was born of the need for simplicity, and balance... Sometimes a necessary evil.

      Delete
    6. Actually, Ork and Guard allies makes a little sense, even if the team up is unusual. In Retribution, it's mentioned offhand by Inquisitor Useless that Captain Bluddflagg and his crew occasionly worked as mercenaries for the nobles of Meridian. Also, one tribe (the Blood Axes) serve the possibility.

      Guard and most other Ork Klans though? Definitely weird X3

      Delete
    7. Do you guys think it makes more sense to switch Orks and Chaos? So you have IG with Chaos and SM, Orks with Dark Eldar?

      Delete
    8. Phantom beat me to it but yeah, radical Ordo Xenos inquisitors and blood axes pretty much cover Guard-Ork alliances.

      Delete
    9. Another thing you have to take into account isn't that these are"alliances". Often times a race like orcs aren't allied with, they are aimed. So you could say other factions manipulated an "ally" into attacking another faction.

  3. The LCG format has been getting rave reviews. Will have to take in a demo of this game when my FLGS gets it.

  4. Ah the Space Marines! Oh wait Just UltraMarines... ill pass...

    1. Did you even look at the link? There are ask sorts of factions. Also LCGs allow gradual introduction of me factions, splinter groups etc.

  5. I'm a big fan of FFG's Game of Thrones LCG, so I can't wait for this!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. FFG LCGs are generally solid and also deep in expansions so there is little doubt that if the game is successful we'll see different space marine chapters, other armies, etc.

    Also, FFG does a good job with GW's intellectual property (ork-IG alliances aside). I have Relic which is really big fun and really captures the spirit of the 40k universe.

    1. Relic is freaking awesome, played a game last night! If we can't be bothered with a 40k game we pull out either that or zombicide!

      Delete
    2. Relic is great, a bit longish, but lots of fun and full of theme. They are releasing an expansion coming up that adds in more PvP to the game. So rather than everyone play as a "good guy", you can be a chaos marine, various eldar and more
