The universe of Warhammer, known for its vast and intricate worlds, is set to expand further with the addition of three new board games, taking players on an exhilarating journey of battles, strategy, and survival. Perfect for both newcomers and experienced hobbyists, these games offer easy set-up, push-fit models, and gameplay time of approximately 30 minutes.
Firstly, in anticipation of the upcoming Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2, the tie-in board game, ‘Space Marine: The Board Game’, is set to hit the shelves. A preview of this exciting game shows that it will offer a thrilling skirmish between Lieutenant Titus and a horde of Termagants. The game kit comes with 23 push-fit miniatures, dice, a ruler, a game board, and a 40-page rulebook filled with engaging backstory and missions. North American fans can pre-order their copy now on the Target online store, with worldwide availability coming later this year.
Second on the list is ‘Combat Arena: Lair of the Beast’, a game that takes two to four players on an adventure into the den of a deadly alien Ambull. Players can choose from ten diverse characters, each equipped with unique skills and talents, and fight their way to victory against the Ambull and other players. Besides providing fast and fierce gameplay, Combat Arena also offers a fantastic collection of classic Warhammer miniatures. The game is set to be released later this month at Barnes and Noble in North America, and at Müller, Thalia, Elbenwald, and GameStop in Germany.
Lastly, the new ‘Warhammer Underworlds Starter Set’ throws players into the heart of the dark and gloomy city of Shadespire, where deathless warbands battle for glory and shadeglass. Combining the detailed miniatures that Warhammer fans love with strategic card game mechanics, this two-player game offers exciting gambits and the chance to upgrade fighters for victory. The starter set includes two full warbands, two 32-card Rivals decks, over 100 gameplay tokens, and two complete rulebooks to guide you through the game. More details about this comprehensive set will be released soon.
