Last year we promised that 2017 would be the best year of Warhammer 40,000 ever, with incredible new miniatures, climactic galaxy changing events, and epic developments in the story of the Dark Millennium to mark 30 years of war in the far future…
It all starts on Cadia, as the fortress world of the Cadian Gate braces itself for the greatest Chaos invasion in Imperial history.
Against the Gathering Storm, stand some of the greatest heroes of the Emperor’s realm, depicted in a few of the most incredible Citadel Miniatures we’ve ever made: the Triumvirate of the Imperium.
Gathering Storm: Fall of Cadia is a an event that any fan of Warhammer 40,000’s lore and background will want to read. In many ways, this is a battle that has been brewing for 10,000 years, since the first Warmaster of Chaos, Horus, fell at the siege of the Emperor’s Palace above Terra itself. Now, his successor, Abbadon, plays his hand*.
For those gamers out there, there are loads of new rules in there too. Naturally, there are datasheets for the three new heroes, all of which are powerful warriors and have rules that can bolster any Imperial force. There are also new rules to form Grand Crusades composed of the combined might of the full Imperium – Adeptus Astartes, Astra Militarum, Adeptus Mechanicus, Imperial Knights, Adepta Sororitas and all the other myriad arms of the Imperial war machine.
Additionally, there are rules for playing games in and around the Cadian Gate at the time of this 13th Black Crusade. Empyric storms ravage the war zone, empowering psykers, creating vortexes of Warp energy, and generally making the battlefield an even deadlier place than usual!
Pre-order all these new releases now from the Games Workshop online store or pick them up from your local shop next weekend.
While Cadia is under attack, and the Imperium’s gaze is locked on the struggle there, xenos are lying in wait across the galaxy to take advantage of the strained defences. The Deathwatch will not be distracted from their cause, however, and their specific skills will be needed as never before. As of today, you can launch right into a collection of these xenos hunters with a Start Collecting! Deathwatch box.
All in, it’s a great time to be a Warhammer 40,000 fan.
