New release Pre-Orders are on the way! Games Workshop just let us in on all the new releases that will be going up for pre-order this coming Saturday at 1PM eastern here in the states.
Now let’s look at next week’s Pre-Order line-up from Warhammer Community.
Chapter Approved: War Zone Nachmund Grand Tournament Pack and Munitorum Field Manual 2022
Get ready for a new season of competitive and matched play in the first instalment of Chapter Approved 2022, which contains the current Grand Tournament Mission Pack.
Plus, make sure you’re building valid army lists with the up-to-date points found in the Munitorum Field Manual 2022.
Chapter Approved comes with 18 missions – nine each for Incursion- and Strike Force-sized games – as well as new and updated secondary objectives, letting you flex your tactical skill against worthy opponents on an equal footing.
Before War Zone Nachmund, the battlefields of Octarius were one of the major flashpoints in Warhammer 40,000. As a catastrophic conflict between Tyranids and Orks spilled out of its zone of confinement,* the Imperium was forced to commit its own troops – and now it’s even easier to get in on the action.
Chapter Approved is always an exciting release as it can help shake up the 40k meta and help move multiple factions up and down in the meta while also changing how people play the game.
Kill Team: Starter Set
This Kill Team set is designed for new players who want to jump into a fantastic game of secret missions and sci-fi skirmishes. It features two kill teams, the grimly determined Veteran Guardsmen of the Death Korps of Krieg, and a motley crew of kunnin’-but-brutal Ork Kommandos, who we last saw tearing chunks out of each other in the incredible cinematic Kill Team trailer.
This was released a few months back and is now the official new Kill Team Starter, giving new players some iconic and newly revamped minis!
Kill Team: Veteran Guardsmen
The largest and most diverse arm of the vast military forces of the Imperium, the Astra Militarum is by necessity a brutal meat grinder. To become a Veteran Guardsman requires incredible talent, unbelievable luck, or more likely both – and that goes double for those who hail from the post-apocalyptic world of Krieg.
This box contains a squad of 10 of these tireless troopers, who can either be built as a group of specialists for games of Kill Team or deployed with your brave regiments in games of Warhammer 40,000.
Just like WHC said, from a lore standpoint, these guys are the real deal! Plus, they also just kinda look dope as shit, so there’s that too. They were previously only inside the Kill Team box, but now you can pick them up as an individual kit!
Kill Team: Kommandos
Orks are well-known for loving a straightforward scrap where brutal is the order of the day. A rare few Orks develop a dash of Mork’s kunnin’, however, and these sneaky boyz become Kommandos.
This box includes a mob of 10 Kommandos, plus a trusty Kommando Grot and volatile Bomb Squig. The unit can be built in a variety of ways, to wage a covert Waaagh! on special operations or the larger-scale battlefields of Warhammer 40,000.
Similarly impressive are these Kommando Orks, who are now available separately as new individual releases for all the Ork fans out there.
Kill Team: Octarius Book
This tome covers all the key Kill Team rules for both the Ork Kommandos and the Veteran Guardsman, detailing rare equipment, tactical ploys, and a range of battlefield roles.
It also squeezes in nine bespoke Shadow Operations missions, each with its own special rules, unique loadouts, and distinct objectives, letting you play out a campaign of skirmish missions across the Octarius sector.
If you are looking to re-live last year’s Kill Team Octarius scenario and lore, this is a great way to do it!
Kill Team: Kill Zone Octarius
Now that you’re kitted out with Kill Team goodies, why not set up somewhere suitable to play out your tactical operations? Kill Zone Octarius contains a veritable shanty town of ramshackle Ork constructions – the perfect playground for cut-throat covert operations.
This highly modular scenery set is also great for games of Warhammer 40,000 and even comes with its own double-sided, foldable battlefield board.
Similarly, this terrain kit will help make the board even resemble Octarius and make it just that much easier to get fully into the atmosphere.
