Warhammer Preview: Decadence & Decay

Warhammer Preview: Decadence & Decay

There was a new Warhammer Preview on Saturday that showed off some new reveals for Warhammer 40,000, Age of Sigmar, Necromunda, Middle-Earth, and Warhammer Underworlds.

Warhammer 40000 Rust to Rust

First up is the Warhammer 40,000 War Zone Charadon release trailer.

War Zone Charadon is the next big narrative arc for Warhammer 40,000 9th edition. The first book in the series is War Zone Charadon Act 1: The Book of Rust. Typhus, son of Mortarion attempts to conquer forge world Metalica. The Adeptus Mechanicus do not intend to give up their forge world so easy and ready their defenses against the forces of Chaos.

War Zone Charadon The Book of Rust

Not only does this book contain war zone and narrative background, it also has rules for: Death Guard, Adeptus Mechanicus, Imperial Knights, and Drukhari.

To pair with this new book is a new Warhammer 40,000 Crusade Mission Pack called Plague Purge. The first crusade mission pack, Beyond the Veil was a huge hit. I was able to play a few games myself and had an absolute blast. The new Crusade rules in 9th edition really brings the narrative play to life on the table. For me, it even influenced when and how I painted my models.

Codex Drukhari

We were just talking about getting Trey set up with Drukhari. Stabby Dark Elves, yes please! It looks like Games Workshop is tackling some of the weaknesses of Dark Aeldari in their current form. With the new Codex, the Drukhari are going to become more lethal. Also, you now have the ability to mix cults, Kabals and Covens.

Codex Supplement Dark Angels

Dark Angels ascent from the ashes looks to continue with this new codex supplement. From the rules that have been revealed, the Dark Angels are becoming more "Dark Angely?" With more of a focus Ravenwing, Deathwing, and a focus on hunting Fallen.

Necromunda Progress Through Technology

I have not played Necromunda yet, but it is the boxed game that we are most interested in. The terrain is what got me first, and is waiting to be built and painted.

This preview focusses on new releases for the Van Saar, the House most known for its technologically advances.

Necromunda House of Artifice

The House of Artifice includes new rules, models, and background for House Van Saar.

Warhammer Underworlds Desecrate Direchasm

A new Slaves to Darkness warband revealed for Warhammer Underworlds.

 The new warband is helmed by two sisters. One a warrior, one a wizard. Games Workshop was light on the details for this release, but the models look fantastic.

 Warhammer Age of Sigmar The Path to Excess

Age of Sigmar The Path to Excess

Take a look at this amazing new sculpt of Sigvald. I have been debating which army to start with for Age of Sigmar. On the one hand, I have had my eye on Nighthaunt purely for how great the army looks on the table. On the other hand, if I was going to pick a Chaos faction, it would probably be Slaanesh. I like that I can use the daemons in Warhammer 40,000. With the latest Slaanesh releases in Broken Realms: Morathi and now this awesome centerpiece model, I might be picking up Slaanesh sooner rather than later. Take a closer look below.
