New army for Age of Sigmar, Duardin Sky Pirates:



Introducing the Kharadron Overlords, a brand new faction of duardin for the Mortal Realms.

From the skies come the airborne armadas of the Kharadron Overlords – sky-fleets of iron-clad warriors aboard fantastical machines of war armed with powerful aetheric weapons.

They are a proud people and masters of strange alchemical powers. Guided by their Kharardron Code, and long-hidden from the rampaging forces of the Dark Gods, they did not merely survived the Age of Chaos, they thrived.

With the dominion of Chaos receding, they venture forth once more to seek plunder and riches among the realms.

This new Duardin faction is a force unlike any you have seen before. These are not the descendants of Grungni who hid in their mountain holds or fled to Azyr, and neither are they the firebrand berzerkers of the lodges that worship the fractured god Grimnir. The Kharadrons have become a race unto themselves, separated from their kin through the centuries.

You won’t see a single scrap of flesh on them – every inch of their bodies is clad in armour or complex suits, so as to protect them from the harsh environments found in the magic-infused skies of the Mortal Realms. Their weapons are powered by strange chemical processes, and their airships, while bearing some similarities to the gyrocopters of their ancestors, are clearly powered by a far more powerful and possibly arcane mechanism.

They've also got something coming for competitive players:
This is a new game, set in the Mortal Realms during the Age of Sigmar. It has been designed specifically for competitive, organised play, to support our growing community of gamers out there. For the moment, pretty much all we have in terms of detail is the cryptic video above, but you’ll be hearing much more about this new game, and seeing some of the new miniatures, very soon…

So... are they, like, Dwarf Marines?
Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Steampunk Squats :P

They do have several visible nods to the Space Marines there, kinda like a fantasy parody of them.

Can't see that Shadow War set being less than £150 from the sounds of things.

That reminds me, I still have an unopened Dreadfleet set around somewhere.

News from GW's event at Adepticon today:

Death Guard minis!



The next edition of 40K will see the return of movement values, armour save modifiers, charging units will strike first, morale works like AoS (individual models run away and are destroyed rather than the whole squad running off), and there'll be Open, Narrative and Matched Play too, with Command Points bonuses for playing with a thematic army.

They're also introducing an interactive FAQ platform for questions and voting on rulings, and the community built AoS army builder is being made official and will brought to GW's website where it will remain free to use.

Additionally, they're releasing what they're calling a new core product line with Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire - it's a brand new collectible cards and miniatures board game, with fast-paced highly competitive rules. It'll have a continual stream of expansions covering a variety of factions, and every model will be playable in AoS too with new Warscrolls.

It also has the first female Stormcast mini:

Warhammer Underworlds is a new tactical arena combat game on its way later this year. This is a system designed for balanced, small-scale tactical games, that can be played quickly and easily by anyone, but which even experienced players will find challenging to master. The game rules are designed with competitive play in mind; matches can be played in under 45 minutes, on a smaller surface than our larger-scale games, and will be ideal for club or tournament play. And not only that, we’ll be fully supporting an organised play system for this game, right from day one.

While the format of the game is a big departure from the game of Warhammer Age of Sigmar, Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire is still firmly set in the Mortal Realms. The game is set in the Shadespire – an ancient and damned city, cursed by the Lord of Undeath to eternally sit in limbo between the realms of Light and Shadow – a haunted metropolis of mirrors, unquiet spirits and ever-shifting chambers.

The forces you can use in this game will be drawn from races across the Mortal Realms, including some for factions that have not received any new miniatures since we first ventured into the Age of Sigmar. Each of these sets will be composed of a small band of easy-to-assemble, push-fit miniatures in the style of our single-pose heroes to represent a specific band of warriors from that faction. These are provided in coloured plastic, and clip together, so you can quite literally be playing with them within minutes of opening the box with no glue or paint needed! (Though they do look great painted, and your dice will roll better – probably.)

The first two factions showcased in detail are iconic adversaries: organised Eternals Liberators and Khorne Bloodreavers. You can see from the poses of these models already that these are really dynamic and impressive miniatures. And yes, that is a lady Liberator in the video, organised, with a classic hammer and shield combo – for those of you who might have doubted whether Sigmar was an equal opportunities employer.

The game is played using unique dice and card decks, and these will, to an extent, be unique to each faction. Both decks of cards used in the game are fully customisable – meaning you can choose to create all manner of combinations of overlapping abilities to use and objectives to achieve. This can be a really rewarding part of the game – and means that even the same faction can be played in wildly different ways. We’re expecting to see all sorts of combinations tried out at game stores, clubs and in tournaments.

So, in summary, a new game set in the Mortal Realms with easy to learn, difficult to master rules, combined with deck-building mechanics and multiple factions makes this a game that will be simple to start, but offers near limitless tactical challenge and replayability.
