The Scoop from SPIEL

SPIEL is a truly amazing spectacle – the largest tabletop gaming convention in the world – so of course we’re here taking part!

Even if you can’t join us in person, we’re making some incredible reveals today…

Something sinister has been stirring on Necromunda, festering in the shadows. The authorities have been sent to investigate…

Dark Uprising is a fresh take on Necromunda for both veterans and newcomers alike. The box is bursting with amazing models, including modular Zone Mortalis terrain, two complete gangs – the twisted Corpse Grinder Cult and indomitable Palanite Enforcers – plus a rulebook, cards, dice and rulers.

Whether you’re looking for a new way to play in the underhive, taking the plunge for the first time, or just want to get your hands on that amazing terrain, Dark Uprising is for you. 

That’s not all that’s stirring in the dank corners of the underhive though. The Book of Ruin brings the full ferocity of the cults of Necromunda to bear against the planet’s beleaguered defenders. Form a Genestealer Cults, Helot Chaos Cults or Corpse Grinder Cult gang, or even corrupt your existing house gang!

Keep an eye out for Necromunda news and previews in the coming weeks.


It’s all Ogre

If you already thought Blood Bowl was brutal, get a load of this!

Ogres are a huge part of Blood Bowl, and now they’re getting their very own team. The incredible Fire Mountain Gut Busters will grind their rivals into the Astrogranite, and occasionally they might remember to punt a Gnoblar into the End Zone when it grabs the ball…

Every model in the box is bursting with character – and bursting out of their uniforms in some cases – which will be as much fun to paint as they are to play. Keep your ear to the ground for more news on the Fire Mountain Gut Busters soon.

We’re also showing off this year’s Blood Bowl Almanac! Edited by Lord Borak the Despoiler himself, it contains all of the rules from Spike! Journals 4, 5, 6 and 7, up-to-date Star Player profiles and a comprehensive FAQ for the game. It’s going to be a must-have for coaches everywhere.


The Everchosen’s, uh… Chosen

The champions of the Varanspire’s gladiatorial arenas strike out into the Bloodwind Spoil.

Spire Tyrants are the latest warband to make a claim to the wastelands. Each fighter is a seasoned killer in their own right, having honed their deadly trade in the fighting pits of the Varanspire itself. Arrogant, experienced and disciplined – this new warband is rightly feared by those fighting their way to where the Spire Tyrants came from. 

Not only do we get to explore more of the aesthetic of the Varanspire – first seen in the Varanguard – we also get to see another duardin and a bestigor! You’ve been patiently anticipating the arrival of the Spire Tyrants, and you won’t have to wait much longer before this awesome new warband can be yours.


New Chibi Figures

We’ve shown you the grey renders of the chibi figures Bandai’s been working on, but never before in colour…

The first series will include a Primaris Intercessor, Grey Knight, Sister of Battle, Skitarii Ranger, and an Eversor Assassin. If you’re at the show, stop by the display cases at our booth and check out their adorable little faces with your own eyes! 


One last thing…

Dice Tower is a well-respected name when it comes to tabletop board game reviews. We’re proud to announce they’ve rated Warhammer Underworlds: Dreadfane 9 out of 10 and given it their coveted Seal of Excellence!

On top of that, Dice Tower selected Dreadfane for a spot in their top 3 games at SPIEL! We’re delighted to receive such high praise. If you haven’t tried it yourself, grab a copy of Dreadfane online from select retailers in the USA, Canada and Germany.
