Warhammer snuck in a couple of surprises on us in the last couple of weeks.
They re-released an updated Kill Team rules set. If you buy the new starter, you can pick up a Space Marine tactical squad, a Tau fire warrior squad, the new Kill Team rules booklet, and the small book version of the Warhammer 40,000 rules. That’s a stupendous value for $65. If you’re interested in getting into Warhammer 40,000 but are overwhelmed by the options, this is an excellent starting point for two people.
Traitor’s Hate opens up a new set of army choices for the Chaos Space Marines. This looks like it could be a lot of fun and may introduce the army to new players. We like introductions, and this looks like it could be another good start.
The full Deathwatch release is out, and it looks like it could be a lot of fun for people looking for a finely tuned, precision army. With incredibly small units that don’t break the bank, you can put a lot of specialists together for exactly what you want your army to do. Looks like fun, we may tinker with it next week.
New Chaos Psychic powers. THey’re not new, but they are skinned a little differently from their loyalist psychic powers. The deck is very helpful for people who want to be able keep track at a glance, and we think that’s pretty sweet.
Theoretically, next week has a Blood Angels rules update, but we’ll have to see what the future holds for that.
All right game fans, that’s our quick looks at what is new in the Warhammer 40K universe.
