Games Workshop has announced a wave of exciting pre-orders set for this Saturday, unveiling epic planetary conflicts across the battlefields of the Warhammer universe.
Kill Team: Ashes of Faith
The first of the new releases, Kill Team: Ashes of Faith, introduces an expansion for Kill Team with a narrative twist. The game portrays a race against time as the Inquisition seeks to eliminate a growing Chaos Cult before it consumes an entire planet or sector.
Included in this box are two full Kill Teams, consisting of 23 miniatures for the Chaos Cult – including the Dark Commune and numerous Chaos Cultists – and seven new models for the Inquisitorial Agents Kill Team. The latter offers multiple build options for figures such as an Interrogator, Questkeeper, Death World Veteran, Gun Servitor, and more. Additionally, five Tempestus Scions and five Sisters of Silence are included for Ancillary Support.
The Kill Team: Ashes of Faith box also contains a 72-page book detailing the rules and background for both Kill Teams, as well as a 40-page Ashes of Faith Campaign Rulebook that provides comprehensive narrative campaign rules. Accompanied by tokens, tiles, cards, reusable stickers, and a game board, players can experience a tense shadow war between these rival factions.
Classic Space Marine Miniatures Return
In addition, Games Workshop is reviving past characters, including the Primaris Company Champion, on a made-to-order basis. This figure, previously an event-exclusive miniature, is now more widely available for a limited time. Various classic Space Marine miniatures are also available for order until May 29th.
The Siege of Cthonia: A Horus Heresy Narrative
Simultaneously, Games Workshop is introducing the first campaign book for the new edition of Warhammer: The Horus Heresy – Campaigns of The Age of Darkness: The Siege of Cthonia. The 240-page narrative supplement details the history and key missions of the Siege of Cthonia. This epic conflict saw the Sons of Horus attempt to reclaim their homeworld from an entrenched Loyalist garrison of Imperial fists.
The book also introduces full rules for playing games of Zone Mortalis, a new campaign system, fresh core and narrative missions, and more. For those preferring digital format, The Siege of Cthonia is also available to pre-order in ePub format.
New Warhammer 40,000 Figures
A collection of new Warhammer 40,000 figures is also available for pre-order. This includes Lord-castellan Evander Garrius, known as the Tyrant of Cthonia, and Vheren Ashurhaddon, Master of the True Sons. Other new additions include the Infernus Abomination, an inhuman living weapon, and the Despoiler Squad Upgrade Set for Legion Tactical Squads.
Several new Contemptor Dreadnought Upgrade Sets are also available for pre-order, including Ultramarines, Thousand Sons, Word Bearers, Salamanders, Raven Guard, and Alpha Legion torsos.
