Lost Patrol Up on the GW Webstore

Lost Patrol, the tile board game we have been hearing about is now up on the GW webstore under Blood Angels. You can see it here (assuming it has not been removed). The interesting part is that the game is listed as available for pre-order in the on the listing, but temporarily out of stock under Blood Angels.

However, under the description it says that it will be available June 11th and released June 18th, with a button as shown above to "email me" when it becomes available. Imagine if GW did this with their products. That would be cool.

Here is the Lost Patrol board game as shown on the site.

Moraz III – a deadly jungle world filled with danger and fear, populated by ferocious aliens who wait in the undergrowth to pounce on the unwary and mercilessly kill anyone who stumbles across them. Even the plant life itself is malignant here, constantly twisting and growing in unnatural ways to trap its prey.

A dropship containing vitally important surveillance files has crash landed on this hostile planet. It’s up to you and your squad of Space Marine Scouts to retrieve these files, activate the dropship, and hopefully escape with your lives.

A fun and compelling two-player challenge, Lost Patrol is a boxed game set on a hostile jungle world full of sinister hidden danger! Players assume the roles of a Space Marines Scout squad and a fierce swarm of cunning Genestealers eager to end their lives. The Genestealers of Moraz III have every advantage on their home turf and will make every attempt to quickly despatch the human intruders.

The Scouts will almost certainly all die. But how far can you get? Will you ever see the drop pod tile? And each game becomes a challenge to try and get further – and because you can turn games around in 10 minutes when you get into it, you can play loads of it, and swap sides and make it a competition with your mate.

Inside the box, you’ll find five Space Marine Scouts, twelve Genestealers, six Infestations (the markers of imminent Genestealer appearance),thirty hex tiles and the full rules for play.

This game will be available from 11th June 2016. Click ‘email me’ on the right, and we’ll notify you as soon as pre-orders open.
