Next week sees a pair of new warbands walking the twisted streets of the Mirrored City – Magore’s Fiends and the Farstriders have arrived to do battle in Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire.
Magore’s Fiends are Blood Warriors, the elite troops of the Khorne Bloodbound. Their desire to spill blood and reap skulls is shared with Garrek’s Reavers, but their methods are very different. In Magore’s Fiends, you will find four models – a trio of Blood Warriors called Magore Redhand, Ghartok Flayskull and Zharkus the Bloodsighted, and Riptooth, a daemonic Flesh Hound of Khorne. Each is a powerful fighter, heavily armed and armoured, and ready to bring ruin to their foes and honour to the Blood God. As with every Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire warband, Magore’s Fiends come with 60 new cards to add to your collection, including a host of universal cards to use with any warband.
Also coming with 60 new cards are the Farstriders. Stormcast Eternals from the Vanguard Chambers, these fighters are swift, well armoured and carry ranged weapons, giving them a playstyle quite unlike any other in the game. Sanson Farstrider and his comrades Almeric Eagle-Eye and Elias Swiftblade are in the City of Mirrors in search of a cure to the loss of personality that comes with Stormcast being reforged – but the hunters have become as trapped in Shadespire as the fighters of the other warbands, and now they seek only to survive.
Whether you choose to help them, or to use Magore’s Fiends to slaughter the foolish Stormcast Eternals, you’ll be able to pre-order both new warbands, along with packs of card sleeves styled after both warbands, next weekend.
If you want to see these two new warbands in action before they hit the shelves, tune in to Warhammer TV this Thursday, the 5th of April, to see them pitted against one another in a struggle for supremacy. And if you’ve yet to venture into the City of Mirrors, you can pick up your Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire core set from the Games Workshop webstore now.
