The Warhammer Community team is attending the UK Games Expo today, and as well as talking about the new edition of Warhammer 40,000 (available to pre-order tomorrow, if you didn’t know) Andy Smillie and Pete Foley also showed off some more exciting stuff – with news on a new vehicle, a new Global Campaign and new books on the way later this year.
Let’s start off with this ceramite-armoured monster…
This new tank is one of the new armoured vehicles that accompanies the Primaris Space Marines to war. Like their arms and armour, it was forged on Mars, and is recognisably of the same STC origins as its predecessors. Could this be ancient technology long lost and uncovered once more, or has Cawl been “tinkering” with Omnissiah-blessed technologies? This new war machine stands ready to crush its way to war alongside the tried and tested Predator and Land Raider tanks of the Space Marine Chapters.
The Repulsor is on its way soon. Stay posted for more details.
Next up, we revealed a new global campaign:
The Fate of Konor is a massive worldwide campaign that will decide the fate of one of the primary planets in the 500 Worlds of Ultramar. You’ll be able to battle at home or in stores across a variety of planets and war zones in the system, and your games will decide the eventual fate of one of the strategically important worlds in the segmentum and the Imperium.
The campaign kicks off in July – so you’ll have plenty of time to get your head round the new Warhammer 40,000 rules and paint up some new units for your army.
Last up, we got our first look at Chapter Approved 2017, a new book on its way later this year.
We’ve said right from the start that the new edition of Warhammer 40,000 is one that we’d work to make even better over time. This is one of the ways that will happen. Each year, you’ll have a new Chapter Approved, expanding your gaming options and making what we think is already the best Warhammer 40,000 ever, even better.
Expect the first Chapter Approved book in time for Christmas.
