Games Workshop is now taking pre-orders for a brand new stand-alone board game over in their webshop. Assassinorum: Execution Forces is a fully-cooperative game where players take on one of the Empire of Man’s greatest assassins on a mission to kill off a powerful Chaos Lord before he completes a terrible ritual. The four Assassin minis in the box are exclusive to that product. If you want them, you’ve gotta get the game. You can check them out below the cut.

From the preview:

A brand-new boxed game, Assassinorum: Execution Force gives four Imperial Assassins an incredibly important mission – slay Chaos Lord Drask before his dark ritual brings about the end of the Imperium itself! A fast-paced co-operative game for one to four players, it blends stealth, tactics, subtle forward-thinking and outright blazing violence into a fantastic, tense, action-packed experience that is accessible to board game players of any level.

Included in the box are four beautiful, exclusive Imperial Assassin miniatures – the Vindicare Assassin, armed with an Exitus Rifle and pistol, clad in a stealth suit; the Callidus Assassin, wielding a C’tan Phase sword, neural shredder and poison blades; the Eversor Assassin, with Executioner pistol and Neuro Gauntlet and the Culexus Assassin, with his psyk-out grenades. On top of these, you get fifteen Chaos Cultists, three Chaos Space Marines, a Chaos Familiar and a Chaos Space Marine Terminator Sorcerer. All of these can be deployed in games of Warhammer 40,000 – rules for the Assassins are included in White Dwarf 65.

On top of these incredible miniatures, there’s a set of detailed board tiles on heavy card stock, a deck of gorgeous Event Cards, counters for various events in different shapes, sizes and designs and included dice.

This is available while stocks last – given the quality of the game, and that this is the only place to get the Imperial Assassin miniatures deployable in Warhammer 40,000, we don’t expect these stocks to last long at all! Order Assassinorum Execution Force now to avoid missing out.

    I think that GW has produced some of the best stand-alone games ever: Space Hulk and Blood Bowl come to mind. But this one does not look like one of those games. When I think of 40K I think of squads and armies, not individuals. The super-ninja theme is tired. The character models look like Madonna concert back-up dancers. Maybe I’m missing something, but I’m going to pass on this one.

      Looks like GW is jumping on the co-op bandwagon, and trying to entice the 40K players by offering exclusive stuff in the box.
      Not a bad marketing idea, but I’ll pass.

        Ghool – I think that you hit it right on the head. It does seem like more of a marketing idea than a game… very well put.

  • This is just an excuse to sell new assassin models. Otherwise they should have let Fantasy Flight make it and it would be a better game with more stuff and for a considerably cheaper price. Just another cash grab trying to cash in on the booming boardgame market.

    The Vindicare is one of the worst anatomical sculpts I have ever seen! The others are possibly just as bad but the poses hide it. He has a terrible pose for a sniper anyway and it emphasises the chunkiness of the sculpt.

    I really don’t need any help making fun of you GW.
