A new battlebox, codex, and a pair of expansions for Warhammer 40,000 are coming next weekend.
Faith and fire meet agility and sadism in the new Warhammer 40,000 battlebox, Piety and Pain.This fantastic set includes two armies – Adepta Sororitas and Drukhari – alongside a 32-page campaign book packed with datasheets, missions, Crusade rules, and Theatre of War rules for urban arenas. There’s also the story behind the campaign, as Lelith Hesperax murders her way through Battle Sisters, which you can find out more about in our suitably grisly preview.The Adepta Sororitas army includes five heavy-weapon toting Retributors with a pair of Armorium Cherubs, a heavily armoured Immolator, and a Palatine – a new hero with head and weapons options.The Drukhari force is a swift Wych Cult warband led by the legendary duellist Lelith Hesperax. The stunning new plastic model of this beloved character is joined by ten Wyches, five winged Scourges, and a Venom.
Pre-order Piety and Pain from Saturday, alongside a shiny new codex for the Drukhari.
Combat Patrol: DrukhariThis boxed set contains 18 plastic models, making up a force that’s perfect as an army for Combat Patrol-sized games or the start of a Crusade force. Top tip: adding the Drukhari half of Piety and Pain would be an awesome move. Combat Patrol: Drukhari is themed around the Kabals, with an Archon leading 10 Kabalite Warriors and five Incubi into battle. Every raid needs speed and firepower, and that’s where the Raider and Ravager come in.
The datacards set includes all 41 Stratagems for your army, including seven from the Core Rules. The dice are a deep turquoise – as dark as a Drukhari’s soul – with off-white pips and the sigil of the Kabal of the Black Heart in place of the 6. The set includes 20, which is enough to drown your opponents in volleys of splinter fire.
Designed to work with the rules in The Book of Rust, this expansion includes 24 Crusade missions – six for each game size – along with rules for playing Plague Purge Crusades and a suite of Agendas, Requisitions, and Stratagems. It also includes the basic rules for Warhammer 40,000, making it a handy reference guide while you play.
