Games Workshop Previews New 40k Starter Set

Games Workshop has a new 40k 2-player starter set in the works. It's called Eldritch Omens and it pits the forces of Chaos versus those of the Eldar. The big thing about the box: 15 of the 16 minis that come in it are new. Have yourselves a look.

From the article:

After a month of portents, divinations, and, well, omens, the Advent Engine has succumbed to warp-borne corruption.

As the light within it twists and dims, it summons the energy for one final prognostication – Eldritch Omens.

Fate has conspired to bring the forces of the Asuryani to battle with the Heretic Astartes, in a new battlebox for Warhammer 40,000. This is huge news for fans of pointy ears and spiky galactic despots. Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside.

This battlebox contains 16 miniatures, a whopping 15 of which are all new. The 16th is a mighty, smoke-belching Forgefiend – the forces of Chaos can never have too many daemon engines. You also get a 32-page Eldritch Omens booklet that outlines the narrative of the battle for Daethe in the war-torn Nachmund sector.
