 GW Announces Three New Board Games On The Way!

Space Marine Adventures: Rise of the Orks

Going against Orks in some hostile territory, it’s the same tiled format that we’ve seen previous Space Marine Adventures games use.

In the box, you’ll find everything you need to play exciting games, each lasting just a half hour or so – once you learn the rules. 

Keen-eyed readers will notice these models are from the Space Marine Heroes range. Each of them is cast in coloured plastic for ease of gameplay, but if you’re looking for an awesome set of Terminator models to paint, this is a great way to pick them up

Note: It doesn’t look like all of the models inside the Space Marine Adventures game encompass every Space Marine Heroes Terminator model. For example, the Captain and lightning claw veteran look left out.

Age of Sigmar: Crypt Hunters

The other player creates the dungeon and commands an unending legion of Chainrasps, desperate to stop Sigmar’s servants in their tracks.
