Games Workshop just gave us a big teaser on what’s due to come out next week. It looks like we’re going to be seeing more Idoneth Deepkin releases for Age of Sigmar, Necromunda Gang War III, and a new team for Blood Bowl. Let’s take a look at what they had to say and see what’s coming our way next week.
Firstly, following on from Lotann, Warden of the Soul Ledgers come three Isharann heroes – vital support units for any Idoneth Deepkin force. Isharann heroes fill an essential role in the Idoneth Deepkin army, each designed to open up new tactical possibilities and allowing you to customise your style of play.
The Isharann Tidecaster, for example, gives you access to the powerful Lore of the Deep, and can be used to reverse the Tides of Death table:
Isharann Soulscryers, meanwhile, are Priest units that let you make sudden ambushes from the board edge with your Idoneth Deepkin units, as well as making unlucky enemy units easier to charge:
Finally, the Isharann Soulrender can steal the souls of enemies and use them to regenerate your Namarti units – pretty nifty, eh?
Gang War 3, like its predecessors, is a gamer’s toolbox designed to expand your game of Necromunda and introduce new rules, weapons, units, missions and more to make your battles in the underhive better than ever. From expanded weapons options for every gang, to rules for bringing hulking Brutes like the Ambot to your games, to all manner of quality-of-life improvements, you’ll find Gang War 3 the perfect expansion regardless of how you play.
The new edition of Necromunda gave the Specialist Games studio the chance to realise the Van Saar more richly than ever before, fully living up to their reputation as masters of technology. Every part of the kit, from the lasguns to the bodysuits, is sleek and tactical, while weapons like the rad cannon and wargear like the Hrystrar pattern energy shield offer all sorts of options for arming your gangers. You could even use the kit to kick off your own elite regiment of the Astra Militarum…
Alongside the Van Saar, you’ll be able to pick up a specially themed set of dice to match your gang, as well as gang cards – single-use tactics that you can use to gain a key advantage on your foes in your games. The gang cards set also features a set of fillable fighter cards, perfect for keeping tabs on your Leaders and Champions.
Meanwhile, for fans of Blood Bowl, a new team enters the fray next week with an exciting new format for rules and lore for the game of fantasy football. The first of these is the hotly anticipated Chaos Chosen team – the Doom Lords.
To add the Doom Lords to your games, you’ll want to pick up a copy of Spike! Journal – the essential periodical for coaches everywhere. In Spike! Journal, you won’t just find rules for your team, but dispatches from the strange world of Blood Bowl.
To help you keep track of your Doom Lords, we’re releasing a new set of team cards – a 44 card deck which contains profiles for your players, Star Players and blank cards for keeping track of your roster and advancements as well as your special plays. There’s also a set on the way for the Skaven, as well as a deck of Star Player cards, both of which should prove invaluable for any budding manager.
This week we’re seeing the releases continuing for the Idoneth Deepkin, the new Van Saar gang coming out for Necromunda alongside Gang War 3, and a new grip of Blood Bowl releases to finish it off! We can’t wait to get our hands on these hot new releases!
Make sure you check back in with us tomorrow for the full list of releases coming out later this week, as well as their prices.
