Physical copies of June’s magazine are sleeved, and come with a poster for Warhammer 40,000 PC game Dark Tide, as well as a transfer sheet with enough bespoke Tome Keepers decals to outfit an entire demi-company of Space Marines!
If you’ve started a collection of your own Tome Keepers, this issue is an absolute must-have. But there’s more – check out our top pick for Warhammer 40,000.
Crusades of a Chapter
Narrative players rejoice – in this article, the Tome Keepers get the full Crusade treatment, from their own Agendas, Requisitions, and Crusade Relics, to a name generator and even a special form of Crusade progression called the Pursuit of Knowledge. The Tome Keepers will feel every bit like the Blood Angels, Dark Angels, and Space Wolves – who each have their own codex expansions – when it comes to playing a Crusade campaign.
Ogor fans are also in for a treat in June’s issue – they’re getting a Tome Celestial dedicated to them, though it’s not exactly your typical Ogor tribe that’s featured.
Flashpoint – The Siege of Excelsis
If you’ve been keeping up to speed on the major plot points of the Broken Realms saga, you’ll no doubt be aware that the city of Excelsis in Ghur is bang in trouble. Not only is Waaagh! Gordrakk very much on its way, but so too is a certain god of earthquakes, and it’s fair to say he’s not a happy bunny.
Well, the heart of this issue’s Flashpoint is a four-part mini-campaign that enables you to relive the key battles of the Siege of Excelsis. As well as the four battleplans themselves, there are bespoke Realms of Battle rules that represent the challenges and dangers of fighting within the war-torn city, as well as guidance on how to play the campaign with alternative armies for added replayability.
