Games Workshop releases Pandorax supplement book for 40k Apocalypse

Games Workshop has released their next supplement for Apocalypse 40k. This one’s called Pandorax.


From the release:

Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse: War Zone Pandorax is the third War Zone supplement to the Apocalypse rulebook. Each War Zone is based on a famous campaign from the history of the Warhammer 40,000 universe and describes the course of the war, the famous battles that were part of it, and the combatants that took part. It also includes all the special rules, missions and formations required to replay the campaign in games of Apocalypse.

  • Is that a bit like anorax?

    I know… it’s what a ninja panda carries πŸ™‚

    Next they’ll be looking for unobtanium πŸ™‚

    … OK…

    …I’m done dow πŸ˜‰

    • …Now… not dow πŸ˜€

      • Daniel36

        Are you done? πŸ˜›
        Unobtanium… You know, I am pretty sure GW was truly and royally ticked off that they didn’t come up with that one themselves.

        But that’s part of the charm I suppose.

        • Lemminkaeinen

          But “unobtanium” is a generic term for fantastic material. Has been in use since the fifties:

          • odinsgrandson

            Yeah… it means exactly what it sounds like.

            As in, no one can actually fight over unobtanium, given that it is impossible to get any of it.

            Of course, none of this makes it sound less stupid as a fantasy term.

            … Anyway, I don’t remember Pandorax from 40k fluff. Has it shown up before?

          • 4tonmantis

            I just looked through the 3rd edition rulebook, old Imperial Guard codex, and Eye of Terror listing of planets. I am too lazy to look elsewhere but none of those sources had a mention of Pandorax.

          • n815e

            That wouldn’t keep GW from trademarking it…

        • 4tonmantis

          Since when does GW come up with stuff themselves?

  • The Beast Rampant

    Isn’t Unobtanium what most of their minis are made of? That would explain a lot.

  • AccessDenied

    Unobtanium? It’s on the shelf over there, next to the handwavium.

    • 4tonmantis

      I can’t believe I spent good badwidthium on that joke πŸ˜›

  • Hexenjaeger

    Watch out for GW’s Ceaseandesistium.

    • 4tonmantis

      looks for trace elements of likebuttonium
