A brand new boxed game has just been announced by Games Workshop at the Gama Trade Show; Shadow War: Armageddon.
Some of the Warhammer Community team are currently at the huge trade show in Las Vegas, and are showcasing some of the exciting new releases on the way over the next few months. The first of these is Shadow War: Armageddon.
Right now we don’t have a huge amount of detail on this set (though we will, very soon), but what we do know is that it is a squad-level game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. The specific setting is the hive cities of War Zone: Armageddon, and the two forces pitted against each other are Space Marines Scouts from the Blood Angels Chapter and ferocious Ork Boyz.

Games Workshop has a new vehicle available for your Horus Heresy army; the Mechanicum Macrocarid Explorator! Preorder now, shipping next week.
Uniquely crafted to the needs of the Magos leading the expeditionary force, Macrocarid Explorators first saw use as frontline combat and mobile command vehicles in the early days of the Great Crusade. Heavily armoured and equipped with the Mechanicum’s signature technologies and weapons, they are now pressed into service on both sides of the cataclysmic battles of The Horus Heresy.
Macrocarid Explorators can transport Magos’ or their units of deadly automata across the battlefield, cutting through any opponent foolish enough to come close with powerful weapons enhanced by augury scanners. Their heavy armour makes them as durable as the Legiones Astartes Land Raider, with the addition of extensive self-repair systems.
The Mechanicum Macrocarid Explorator includes optional weapons for the vehicle’s sponsons and hull mounting points. A pair of lascannon or two irradiation engines may be fitted to its sponson mounts, whilst a mauler bolt-cannon and a graviton imploder are available as hull mounted weapons.

With Burning of Prospero, Games Workshop gives the boxed game treatment to another battle in the Horus Heresy saga (last year at about the same time, the company release Betrayal at Calth). This one pits the Space Wolves, Sisters of Silence, and the Custodian Guard against the psychic Thousand Sons for control of the city of Tizca.
Included in the box are 47 miniatures, alternative weapon pieces, tiles, dice, a rule book, and a story book for $150.
The Horus Heresy: Burning of Prospero is a game of running battles set in a city torn apart by a fiery cataclysm, featuring six scenarios designed to stretch the strategic nous of two players. One player controls the Space Marines of the Thousand Sons, reality-twisting psychic superhumans, and one controls the Space Wolves, Sisters of Silence and Custodian Guard. It’s a fast-paced game full of strategic decisions, with the strengths and weaknesses of both sides meaning tactics and foresight are just as important as lucky dice rolls.

ForgeWorld have new 28mm resin models for Games Workshop’s Age of Sigmar miniatures game available to order now. You can get one of the fantasy lizardmen Fimirach Nobel, or both the nobel and a set of Warriors.
Leading units of Fimir Warriors, Fimirach Nobles are even more ferocious combatants than the loathsome reptilians they lead. Lead into battle by Fimirach Nobles, Fimir Warriors are loathsome, one-eyed reptilian creatures, infamously degenerate and malign and possessed of dark powers. Armoured with plates of spell-forged bronze fitted to their hunchbacked bodies, Fimir wield Baleglyph weapons in combat.
This collection includes three sets of three Fimir Warriors and one Fimirach Noble, totalling 10 multi-part resin models.

ForgeWorld have opened up preorders for the massive (and pricey) Sokar pattern Stormbird on their webstore for your Horus Heresy 30k Marines.
The Sokar Pattern Stormbird is a dedicated attack lander. It has served as a high-durability orbital assault craft, a mobile bastion and firebase which could land a Space Marine strike force and withstand heavy ground fire while its cargo or troops and war machines disembarked to press the attack. One of the later patterns developed, the Sokar was the design precursor to the smaller Thunderhawk Gunship.
The Stormbird’s standard armament is four turret-mounted twin linked lascannon, three twin-linked heavy bolters, and a complement of six dreadstrike missiles. It is also equipped with particularly dense composite armour plating, and is further protected by a series of void shield generators which it can extend to protect disembarking troops and war machines.
Its cavernous transport bays can hold 50 fully armed Space Marines. Alternatively it can carry up to 5 Dreadnoughts, including the mighty Leviathan; Jump-pack equipped infantry; Rapier batteries; bikes; jetbikes; a Rhino armoured transport; or a mixed force of all of the above.
The Sokar pattern Stormbird is the largest Imperial aircraft we have produced. Weighing 6 kg and measuring over half a meter from nose to tail, it’s so large, a Deimos pattern Rhino can be loaded inside it and disembark by the rear hatch. Its interior includes extensively detailed transport bays and cockpit, and six Space Marine crew: two pilots and four turret gunners. Optional quad heavy bolters and twin-linked lascannon to be mounted on Stormbird’s four ball-turrets are included.
Rules for using the Sokar pattern Stormbird in Horus Heresy games can be found in The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Army List. Rules for using the Sokar pattern Stormbird in standard games of Warhammer 40,000 can be downloaded from the rules tab on this page.
This huge, multi-part resin kit builds one complete Sokar pattern Stormbird.
