Coming Soon: Blood of Baal, Battleforces and Beyond

Buckle up. It’s almost time for some Christmassin’. Next weekend, we’re bringing you a host of goodies for Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar, kicking off December with new Battleforces, the Psychic Awakening and more! Here’s what you’ll be able to pre-order next weekend…

New Battleforces!

Looking to start a new army this Christmas? Or just to give your Warhammer-playing friends or family the perfect gift? Look no further than a Battleforce! These jam-packed boxed sets are filled with models, all for less than you’d pay by getting the kits separately.

This year, we’ve got Battleforces on offer for Chaos Space Marines, Drukhari, Blood Angels, Tyranids, Space Wolves, the T’au Empire, Stormcast Eternals, Gloomspite Gitz, Nighthaunt, Skaven and even Adeptus Titanicus Knights. 

Psychic Awakening: Blood of Baal

Who wears red, comes down your chimney and punishes the naughty? Why, Mephiston attacking a manufactorum full of traitors of course! Next weekend, we turn our gaze to Baal’s place in the Psychic Awakening, with a new campaign supplement and a stunning new rendition of the Lord of Death.

This book is part lore, part double-pronged codex update, and all awesome! Inside, you’ll see the Blood Angels face the Tyranids once more as part of their desperate ongoing defence of their homeworld. New and updated datasheets give your Blood Angels access to extra army rules, Vanguard units, Stratagems, psychic powers, Litanies and more! There’s even some extra stuff for Flesh Tearers fans – ideal if you like your Blood Angels successors extra bloody.

That’s not all. The Tyranids are getting some very exciting updates to help you bring this army to life on the tabletop as never before. Extra bio-artefacts allow you to create particularly notable gribblies armed with unique and terrifying weapons. A suite of Stratagems let you change your strategy on the battlefield to better hunt your prey. You’ll even be able to build your own hive fleet with your choice of traits. And that’s not all…

Adaptive Physiology is a new system, bespoke for the Tyranids, that lets you represent the myriad adaptations of the Great Devourer. A Carnifex with Synapse? A pack of camouflaged Tyranid Warriors? It’s all possible thanks to Psychic Awakening. We’ll be previewing these systems in more depth soon, so stay tuned!

Just who could stand before such a tide of horrors? We can think of no one better than Mephiston, the Lord of Death! Reborn (again) after crossing the Rubicon Primaris, the new Mephiston is an exemplar of the terrifying grace of the Blood Angels – not to mention a great presentation piece for a painter.

Chapter Approved 2019

Whatever Warhammer 40,000 army you play, you’ll want to get a copy of this year’s Chapter Approved – the essential annual update for all gamers in the 41st Millennium. This year, we’ve separated Chapter Approved into two bundled books for your convenience. 

Try new missions and ways to play with Chapter Approved 2019 itself, then build your matched play lists with the Munitorum Field Manual – a reference guide with points for everything currently in Warhammer 40,000. The Field Manual doesn’t just contain updated points, but unchanged ones too, meaning you’ll only have to look in one place when writing your lists! 

Kill Team: Annual 2019

Love Kill Team? Then make sure to get yourself the Kill Team Annual 2019! This rules supplement is like Chapter Approved, but for Kill Team, bringing together points updates, content previously only printed in White Dwarf and brand-new rules for another great year of skirmish gaming.

Try the Adepta Sororitas, gear up your Heretic Astartes with new guns, forge a narrative with dozens of missions – this gaming toolbox is packed with resources that’ll make your battles more fun however you prefer to play.
