The new box set for 40k heads to Terra, itself, seat of the Imperium and where the Golden Throne keeps the Emperor alive. However, a genestealer cult has managed to infiltrate onto its surface. In this preview of Shadow Throne, we get a look at some new wargear and special rules coming for figures in the set.
From the article:
The secret is out. A new Warhammer 40,000 battlebox, Shadow Throne, is coming soon, and it reveals the rise of a Genestealer Cult on the sacred soil of Holy Terra itself! That’s a late-Halloween shocker right there.
The Cult is opposed by the mightiest heroes the Imperium can muster – the Talons of the Emperor. Both sides bring a new hero to the fight – the Adeptus Custodes Blade Champion, a consummate master of melee combat (more on him later), and for the Genestealers, the crafty demolitions expert known as the Reductus Saboteur.
