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 the new Khorne and Stormcast warbands for Shadespire. Let’s take a look at what they had to say and see what’s coming our way next week.
Next week sees a pair of new warbands walking the twisted streets of the Mirrored City – Magore’s Fiends and the Farstriders have arrived to do battle in Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire.
Magore’s Fiends are Blood Warriors, the elite troops of the Khorne Bloodbound. Their desire to spill blood and reap skulls is shared with Garrek’s Reavers, but their methods are very different. In Magore’s Fiends, you will find four models – a trio of Blood Warriors called Magore Redhand, Ghartok Flayskull and Zharkus the Bloodsighted, and Riptooth, a daemonic Flesh Hound of Khorne. Each is a powerful fighter, heavily armed and armoured, and ready to bring ruin to their foes and honour to the Blood God. As with every Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire warband, Magore’s Fiends come with 60 new cards to add to your collection, including a host of universal cards to use with any warband.
Also coming with 60 new cards are the Farstriders. Stormcast Eternals from the Vanguard Chambers, these fighters are swift, well armoured and carry ranged weapons, giving them a playstyle quite unlike any other in the game. Sanson Farstrider and his comrades Almeric Eagle-Eye and Elias Swiftblade are in the City of Mirrors in search of a cure to the loss of personality that comes with Stormcast being reforged – but the hunters have become as trapped in Shadespire as the fighters of the other warbands, and now they seek only to survive.
Whether you choose to help them, or to use Magore’s Fiends to slaughter the foolish Stormcast Eternals, you’ll be able to pre-order both new warbands, along with packs of card sleeves styled after both warbands, next weekend.
This week we’re seeing the release of the Stormcast Fastriders and Khorne Magore’s Fiends warbands for Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire. Both of these kits will contain 60 new cards to help build your perfect deck, but make sure you pick up the new card sleeves while you’re at it to help keep your deck safe from wear and tear.
Check back in with us tomorrow for the full list of releases coming out later this week, as well as their prices.
What do you think about the new release preview? Are you going to be picking up either of these new warbands?
