Big pre-orders for Saturday, March 20th. Although, Drukhari is grabbing the headlines, there are Black Library and Warhammer Underworlds releases as well.
The big one this week is the Piety and Pain box set.
This great set includes two armies - Adepta Sororitas and Drukhari, along with a 32-page campaign book that includes: datasheets, missions, Crusade rules, and Theatre of War rules for urban arenas. This box is heavily allocated, so make sure to pre-order yours early. This box also brings a whopping $141 in value.
The Adepta Sororitas side of the box includes five Retributors, two Armorium Cherubs, an Immolator, and a Palantine. The Palantine is a new Battle Sisters hero only available in this box set.
The Drukhari side of the box comes with a fast Wych Cult group lead by an updated Lelith Hesperax (only available in this box). She is joined by ten Wyches, five Scourges, and a venom.
The new Codex: Drukhari brings some awesome new rules changes that Drukhari players new and old won't want to miss.
One of the new rules changes is the ability to easily mix Kabals, Wych Cults, and Haemonculus Covens in the same army. That allows you take the Wych Cult focused Piety & Pain box, and mix it with the Kabal focussed Combat Patrol: Drukhari.
