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!

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.

One Page Rules provides yet another option for your miniatures gaming needs. They have updated their rules sets to bring you new units that have been coming out that had not yet been represented in their games. One Page 40k got the biggest update of the bunch, bringing you several new units, as well as making a new army all on their own. Several other units also got a bit of a balancing.
In terms of the new army, that would be the Harlequins. They’re no longer part of the Eldar army list, but are one on their own. All of the new units have also been added to the roster. Tyranids also got a bit of a bump in force numbers, with 5 new additions.
General changes include things like vehicles only rolling once on the damage table, even if they take multiple wounds at once, a rewording of Waagh! for the Orks, Space Marine Captains gain Tactics and their Chaplains now have Tough. Taking a trip over to the Fantasy side, Vampire Counts had their Blood Knights point cost fixed.
