Which faction in the 41st Millennium is most evil? This being the grim darkness of the far future, it’s a pretty tight race, but we doubt many can compete with the wickedness of the Drukhari.
Do you fight for the Dark Gods? These guys gave birth to one of them. By partying. Do you kill your enemies for territory? The Drukhari have almost infinite space in Commorragh and still slaughter anyone that trespasses in their perceived domain (which, to this arrogant race, is everywhere). Next week, these sinister raiders will be receiving a codex of their own, and it’s a particularly special one.
This edition of Warhammer 40,000 has allowed players to customise their armies more than ever before, thanks to a flexible collection of Detachments and in-depth rules for dedicating your army to your chosen Chapter, Chaos Legion, craftworld or other appropriate sub-faction. Stratagems, meanwhile, have opened up all sorts of possibilities and breathed new life into previously overlooked units and tactics.
Codex: Drukhari takes the principles of the codexes so far, and, as with everything else the Dark Kin do, pushes it to a whole new level. Codex: Drukhari isn’t just your guide to one army, it’s your guide to three, featuring in-depth rules for the Kabals, Haemonculus Covens and Wych Cults that inhabit Commorragh. Thanks to a flexible new set of rules, your Drukhari armies will reflect their background better than ever before – a disparate raiding party drawn from several sources with multiple leaders vying for influence.
Next week, you’ll be able to pre-order your copy – in either standard hardback or a Collector’s Edition– along with datacards to help you devise particularly cunning plans – and there’s more!
The new Drukhari codex marks the perfect time to begin your own force of these soul-thirsty raiders, and you won’t find a better way to kick off your army than Start Collecting! Drukhari. Packed with enough units to build a Patrol Detachment and designed to save you money, this set is particularly awesome in light of the new codex, featuring a range of units that have been greatly improved.
You’ll be able to pre-order Codex: Drukhari and this new Start Collecting! Set next weekend, but keep your eyes on Warhammer Community as we’ll be running a series of in-depth previews next week to whet your dark appetites…
