Steve Jackson Games and Games Workshop announce the biggest, back-stabbiest, most loot-filled heavy-weapons bonanza of the year: Munchkin Warhammer 40,000, coming in 2019 to a game store near you!
Since the original Munchkin card game hit the market in 2001, the Munchkin brand has sold over 9 million games and accessories worldwide. Warhammer 40,000, now in its eighth edition, is one of the longest-lasting classic games of miniatures combat. Now these two popular games are merging into a storm of carnage and weirdness guaranteed to satisfy armies of gamers.
As with all Munchkin games, Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 will combine easily with the rest of the extensive Munchkin line, including Munchkin Zombies, Star Munchkin, and Munchkin itself.
Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 is illustrated by principal Munchkin artist (and extreme Warhammer fanboy) John Kovalic, and designed by Munchkin Line Editor Andrew Hackard, in consultation with Games Workshop.
“I have never seen a game store without a Warhammer 40,000 section,” said Hackard. “It’s a pleasure to get to play around in a setting that has such a rich history and so many dedicated fans around the world!”
Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 will launch in 2019 in premiere Deluxe format ($29.95), followed by two 112-card expansions ($19.95) later the same year. That’s almost 400 cards of explosive Munchkin Warhammer fun!

For sixty million years the Necrons have slumbered, their tomb worlds filled with dormant armies and inactive war machines. Now they are awakening as if from half-remembered nightmares, and the galaxy shudders at their return. From vast crypt-fortresses, burnished legions emerge into the dying light of the 41st Millennium, a steel sea rippling beneath the crackling energy discharge of esoteric battle engines. Swarming metal Scarabs, talon-limbed horrors and spectral assassins accompany them, their alien minds focused on a single purpose – to reclaim the stars.
Codex: Necrons contains a wealth of background and rules – the definitive book for Necrons collectors. Within this 120-page hardback, you’ll find:
– In the Beginning: the origin of the Necrons, from the Necrontyr race of flesh and blood that existed billions of years ago, their bitter civil war, the pact with the C’tan which doomed them to immortality and the order which set them to their Great Sleep;
– The Great Awakening: the manner in which the tomb worlds are awakening into the 41st Millennium – some early, some late, others not at all – and the Necrons’ first, violent actions upon rousing;
– The Necron Dynasties: descriptions of the complex, rigid hierarchies of the Necrons, with details and icons of the following 8 dynasties: Sautekh, Charnovokh, Nephrekh, Thokt, Mephrit, Novoth, Ogdobekh, and Nihilakh;
– A galactic map featuring both active and (currently) dormant tomb worlds, crown worlds and dynastic territories;
– Domains of the Phaerons: organisation of the tomb worlds, and the manner in which the Necrons wage war;
– Dynastic Markings: illustrated examples of how Necrons use markings on their soldiers, including hieroglyphs used on war machines. Includes colour schemes and background for the following 9 dynasties: Sautekh, Mephrit, Nephrekh, Nihilakh, Novokh, Thokt, Charnovokh, Nekthyst, and Ogbobekh;
– A New Epoch Begins: a timeline of significant events and battles in Necron history during the 41st Millennium;
– Background on each unit available to a Necrons army;
– A showcase of beautifully painted Citadel miniatures, with example armies featuring everything from individual images of models to battle scenes on terrain.
Everything you need to get a Necrons army primed for games of Warhammer 40,000 is in here:
– 36 datasheets providing rules for using every Necrons unit in your games of Warhammer 40,000;
– Army abilities that reflect Necrons’ methods of war on the tabletop.
– Armoury of the Ancients: profiles for all weapons and wargear of the Necrons, ranged and close-combat
– Points values for all miniatures, weapons and wargear for use in Matched Play games;
– Code of War: Rules for Battle-forged armies, including:
– 5 Dynastic Codes: special rules for each of the following dynasties: Sautekh, Mephrit, Novokh, Nihilakh, and Nephrekh;
– 27 unique Stratagems, including 5 specific to the following dynasties: Sautekh, Mephrit, Novokh, Nihilakh, and Nephrekh;
– Powers of the C’tan: a choice of 6 powers that can be used for each C’tan Shard unit in your army, generated before battle;
– Artefacts of the Aeons: 13 weapons and artefacts available only to Necrons;
– 6 unique Warlord Traits for the Necrons, with 5 additional Warlord Traits, one specific to each of the following dynasties: Sautekh, Mephrit, Novokh, Nihilakh, and Nephrekh;
– 6 Tactical Objectives unique to the Necrons.

ForgeWorld have released some new Death Korps of Krieg Infantry Units, Cavalry, and several new Artillery Units for PreOrder for use with your awesome Imperial Guard Army in Warhammer 40k!
The true strength of the Death Korps lies in its grim foot soldiers, the ranks of disciplined and relentless infantry that make up the korps of the siege regiments. Their cold hearted courage and sinister aspect have made them among the most famous and feared of all the regiments of the Astra Militarum.
This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble a 10-man Infantry Squad of the Death Korps of Krieg. As the title implies, they’re modelled at ease, with these miniatures eschewing the usual hyper-aggressive tone of the Death Korps for something a little more relaxed (not a state likely to last for long…). Clad in the expected sinister masks and helmets, 8 of them boast a lasgun – some hefting theirs, others leaning on them casually. Numerous details are included – the models feature tarp rolls on their backpacks, entrenching tools hanging from their belts and canisters. 1 model features a flamer slung across his back, and 1 is a Sergeant, distinguishable by his sword and shoulder pad chevrons.
This kit comes as 55 components, and is supplied with 10 25mm round bases. Rules can be found in Imperial Armour – Index: Astra Militarum.

Forge World has released the Legion Sicaran Omega Tank Destroyer for your WH40K and Horus Heresey table!
Retrofitted to allow the Sicaran hull to carry heavier firepower, the Omega is a formidable tank hunter. It utilises the speed provided by the Sicaran’s engines to apply overwhelming short range firepower in battle, racing forwards to ambush and obliterate the lumbering siege tanks of enemy columns.
Its simplified, some might say crude, systems are all capable of being produced by the lesser forges attached to many Space Marine strongholds, allowing them to replace losses of more complex vehicles even as the various Forge Worlds became isolated by war and mistrust at the height of the Horus Heresy.
This is a complete multi-part resin kit, in which you’ll find all the components you need to assemble a Legion Sicaran Omega Tank Destroyer. Sharing a hull with the sturdy Legion Sicaran Battle Tank, the standout feature to this model is the 2 enormous plasma cannon that dominate the turret head. These cannon are fed power by massive arrays of tightly-bound cables and both feature their own ammo feed, as well as 6 plasma flasks. Other features that distinguish this model from the Battle Tank on which it is based are the complex sensor array and window visor; the rest of the kit includes 2 lascannon, 3 heavy bolters and all the gun mounts, tracked wheels and large, brutal-looking exhausts you would expect.
This kit comes as 52 components. Rules for fielding the Legion Sicaran Omega Tank Destroyer in games of Warhammer 40,00 and The Horus Heresy are available as a PDF download.

Celebrate 30 years (no, really, it has been that long) of Warhammer 40,000 with this Space Marine model – a special collector’s edition of the Primaris Intercessor Veteran Sergeant, which you can add to your Intercessor Squads in games!
The Veteran Sergeant is a multi-part plastic model, featuring the same impressive levels of detail as the rest of the Primaris Space Marines – he comes armed with a bolt rifle, a holstered bolt pistol and a sword (which is supplied sheathed), and his Mk X power armour features a crux terminatus and marksman’s honour on the right shoulder. The left shoulder is blank, meaning this model can be painted to represent any Chapter you prefer. The kit features 2 variant heads, one helmeted and the other bare.
The Veteran Sergeant comes as 13 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base and a Primaris Character transfer sheet.
The Changer of Ways, the Master of Fortune, the Great Conspirator and the Architect of Fate – these are just some of the names of Tzeentch. A brother god to Nurgle, Khorne and Slaanesh, and often an ally of the Horned Rat, he is the undisputed master of the arcane arts. His followers, daemon and mortal alike, swarm over the mortal realms in scintillating glory, searing the land with coruscating flames of change.
This pack of 25 large-format cards contains the each of the unit Warscrolls from Battletome: Disciples of Tzeentch, printed on individual cards for handy reference in your battles, along with a selection of double-sided card gaming tokens – use these to indicate terrain effects, spell effects, command traits, and abilities for certain units and characters in games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
Please note, you’ll need a copy of Battletome: Disciples of Tzeentch to use the contents of this set.

ForgeWorld have new 28mm Legio Custodes Aquilon Terminator Squads and Sisters of Sielence Prosecutors available for pre-order!
Within the ranks of the Legio Custodes, Aquilon Terminator Sodalities were employed rarely but as need dictated, particularly on those rare occasions where the Legio Custodes were required to operate under conditions designated as ‘Zone Mortalis’ or required to storm a breach. In such operations, the Legio was loathe to risk unwarranted loss of life, and the superior defences of the Aquilon Terminator armour was relied upon to mitigate the risk as much as possible as well as provide a platform of mobile heavy firepower.
The core of the Silent Sisterhood are its Prosecutors, mercilessly effective both in attack and defence. With this bundle you’ll be able to upgrade a 5-model Prosecutor Squad to represent a Prosecutor Cadre.

Talisman: The Horus Heresy is a digital board game based on the Talisman rule system and set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, during the cataclysmic events of the Horus Heresy. Now you can get your hands on the new Prospero expansion adding more stratagems, locations and incantations.
Up to four players will be able to take control of one or more of the galaxy’s greatest heroes or most notorious villains. Taking the side of either traitor or loyalist, these Warlords will form vast companies of Space Marines, battalions of tanks and battlefleets of Spacecraft. They are the most powerful beings in the Galaxy and their followers are legion.
On Prospero, Magnus the Red and his Legion, The Thousand Sons face the ultimate censure for their forbidden studies of warpcraft. Leman Russ and his Space Wolves are sent to punish them by any means necessary. Fighting alongside the Space Wolves are the Sisters of Silence and the Custodian Guard, elite allies sent by the Emperor himself.
As a loyalist, you can play as the primarch Leman Russ or Geigor Fell-Handed his trusted leader. As traitor, play as Magnus the Red or Ahzek Ahriman for the Thousand Sons. Both factions can also play as a powerful psyker the Legion Librarian.
