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?

Games Workshop has released a new expansion for Kill Team, Killzone: Sector Fronteris Environment, a terrain and rules set for your WH40K Kill Team games.
At the farthest reaches of space, the boundaries of the Imperium change almost daily as new worlds are discovered and settled and others fall to predations of aliens or rogue factions seeking freedom from of the crushing yoke of Imperial oppression. Open hostility is a common occurrence on such lawless worlds, yet with fewer resources to call upon, many such conflicts are resolved as guerrilla or shadow wars.
The Sector Fronteris Killzone Environment is an expansion for Kill Team – in the packed box, you’ll find a gameboard, scenery, and exclusive rules that use the unique nature of the Sector Fronteris terrain to introduce dangerous new missions and powerful effects to your games. Included:
– A double-sided Kill Team gameboard measuring 22” x 30”, printed on heavy, durable card stock. One side depicts a sand-blasted wilderness, while the other represents a more industrialised border region
– An 8-page booklet describing the sorts of wild frontier worlds that loosely make up the borders of Imperial territory, and where the influence of Terra is seldom felt.
– 12 Sector Fronteris Tactics cards – these can be used by any Kill Team Faction, with 4 cards providing interactions with the Sector Fronteris scenery and 5 being used specifically by Scout, Comms, Sniper or Medic Specialists
– A Sector Fronteris Environment card, which provides 6 different rules that interact with the scenery
– 4 Sector Fronteris Mission cards – designed to be used in conjunction with the gameboard and scenery, this is a set of 2 matched play missions and 2 narrative play missions, which are split between attacker and defender
– 4 Ryza-pattern Ruins plastic frames – including two brand sets of frames that include 2 slot-together walls, raised barricade, 3 armoured window covers, 1 large section of flooring, 3 small sections of ruined floor, and one connector that resembles a light. If you combine these 2 new frames, you can build a complete STC Ryza-Pattern building with a roof. There are also 2 plastic frames of STC Ryza-Pattern Ruins, each containing 3 slot-together walls, 3 ruined wall sections, and an Inquisitorial crate.

Vaunted as a high honour among the Legio Custodes, the role of Custodian Venatari is reserved for a scant few – those with proven skill and mastery of the rare, sophisticated flight system and archeotech weapons they wield. The Venatari are specialists in hunting direct threats to the Emperor amidst the sprawl of the Palace walls and its spire-tops. While shield companies patrol the vast hallways and cavernous rooms of the Imperial Palace, the Venatari are elevated above, making their domain among the rooftops and spires, overseeing and assessing the threat of all who enter or leave. Their predatory instincts have earned the Venatari the nickname of ‘the Emperor’s Hunting Eagles’, standing as immobile and vigilant as the birds of prey of Old Earth atop the mountain peaks before swooping into a killing dive.
A Custodian Venatari Squad is an Elites choice for a Talons of the Emperor army list. The unit’s rules are available as a free pdf download from the Forge World website.
The Legio Custodes Custodian Venetari Squad includes three complete miniatures, each cast in finest-quality resin. Each Custodian Venatari may be equipped with a Venatari lance or an archeotech kinetic destroyer and Tarsus buckler, and the set includes the components to assemble all three miniatures with either weapon option.

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;

– 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;

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.
