WizKids Announces Warhammer 40,000: Relic Board Game

Feb 19, 2019

WizKids is releasing Warhammer 40,000: Relic, a game for 2-4 players set in the WH40K universe in June 2019!

In Relic, two to four players each assume the role of a powerful individual from the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and bravely venture forth to shield the Antian Sector from certain doom. By completing missions and claiming victory over enemies, characters gain rewards and experience, including mighty artefacts called Relics, furthering their chance at defeating whatever evil lies beyond the Warp rift.

Based on the classic Talisman system, each turn, a player rolls a single six-sided die before moving their playing piece that number of spaces around the board. That player then draws a card or cards to see what they’ve encountered, pitting their heroic persona against foul enemies, dangerous locations, and fantastic strangers. And all the while, these intrepid heroes rise in power, as they work their way toward the ultimate goal at the center of the board, which could be anything from confronting Kairos Fateweaver, the two-headed Oracle of Tzeentch, to fighting for control over the Lost Flagship of St. Antias.

The new WizKids edition features improved and expanded highly-detailed busts of the ten available player characters, as well as upgraded punchboard player and scenario cards.

Will you save humanity or fall to the powers of Chaos?

Enter the Sol System – Halls of Terra expansion available for Relic

June 3rd, 2015

Fantasy Flight Games have released their new Halls of Terra expansion for Relic, the board game.

A bloody interplanetary battle against heresy and Chaos rages in the besieged Antian Sector, threatening untold billions of innocents with unspeakable doom. In Halls of Terra, your quest to defeat the powers of darkness ravaging the Antian Sector takes you to the Sol System. There, you have the rare opportunity to earn the favor of the Imperium’s great ruling powers. You may even perhaps even stand at the foot of the Golden Throne and be named a champion of humanity by the God-Emperor himself. But you’ll find that Terra, too, is filled with perils and will test your Cunning, Strength, and Willpower to the utmost.

In addition to the Sol System side board, Halls of Terra introduces a host of new Threat cards, Missions, and Corruption cards to Relic. Three characters equally adept at combating the horrors of the Antian Sector and navigating the ruthless politics of Holy Terra join the game, along with a powerful new nemesis from one of Chaos’ deadliest legions, the Iron Warriors. Rules for initiating vicious skill duels against apotstate characters are introduced for the first time in the rulebook, downloadable from the Relic support section of Fantasy Flight Games’ website.

Halls of Terra expansion for Relic released

April 19th, 2015

Fantasy Flight Games releases the Halls of Terra expansion for Relic, the Warhammer 40000 board game.

In the unending war for the Antian Sector you have battled plague-bearing daemons and warbands of feral Orks, tainted Imperial bureaucrats and the Striking Scorpions of the Eldar. Now, the Halls of Terra expansion for Relic takes you on a mission to the sacred birthplace of humanity to garner the support you need to save untold billions of human lives.

Yet enemies to mankind thrive even in the ancient heart of the Imperium, and the Chaos emanating from the Antian Sector’s Warp Rift spawns heresy and corruption throughout the galaxy. In Halls of Terra, a new orange Threat deck brings to life the obstacles you may encounter on Mars and Terra, from ruthless Inquisitors to painful ritual purifications. Today’s preview introduces the perils of this Threat deck, along with two new scenarios in which Chaos and corruption spread beyond the Antian Sector, endangering the Sol System and your character’s soul.

February 4th, 2015

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Halls of Terra, a side board expansion for the Warhammer 40,000 board game, Relic.

The Antian Sector is on the brink of succumbing to heresy and Chaos. In Halls of Terra, your quest to save the Antian Sector takes you to mankind’s homeworld, where you must persuade the ruling powers of the Imperium to endorse you as an Imperial Champion. Not only the fate of the Antian Sector, but also your life and honor are at stake in your negotiations with the devout Adepta Sororitas, the ruthless Inquisition, the cold-blooded Adeptus Arbites, and even the God-Emperor himself. You’ll soon find that politics and diplomacy can prove as deadly as any battles inside the Warp Rift, and that corruption haunts even the Imperium’s capital.

Relic: Halls of Terra features a side board depicting locations in Holy Terra and nearby Mars. A new orange Threat deck brings these worlds to life and challenges players as they strive to gain affiliations and prove themselves worthy to appear before the God- Emperor. Three new characters and another terrifying Nemesis enter the game, while additional scenarios reshape the struggle against the forces of Chaos.
