Shadespire is up for Pre-order!

via Games Workshop

Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire $60

Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire is an action-packed combat game for two players. Build your warband, construct your deck, and defeat your rivals.

Shadespire was once a city of wonder and magic, a mercantile metropolis whose rulers defied death, to the fury of Nagash. This fury was made manifest in something worse than destruction – drawing upon the mysterious power of the shadeglass that gave the city its power, Nagash tore away the light and glory of Shadespire, leaving it a twisted reflection of its former splendour. Those adventurers foolish enough to set foot within its walls are trapped, with all hope seemingly lost. Yet not all will accept their fate without a fight…

The Game

In Warhammer Underworlds, you and your opponent pick a warband – 2 are included in this box – and build a deck of power and objective cards. After placing your warband on the hex-tiled game boards, you take turns making actions – movement and attacks – until 3 phases are played. Between actions, you can use the power cards to introduce effects and reactions that can swing the battle in your favour; building the best deck you can and using cunning to deploy these abilities at the perfect time is the secret to mastering the game and dominating your foe. Merely vanquishing your opponent’s warband does not guarantee victory – capturing objectives, standing your ground, making the best tactical choices and deploying the right cards at the right time will gain you the glory points you need to win!

Once you’re familiar with the rules, games will take around 30 minutes – you’ll always have time for a rematch.

In The Box

Everything you and a friend need to play games of Warhammer Underworlds is included in this box. Contained within:

– A Stormcast Eternals warband, made up of 3 push-fit, blue plastic Liberators (Angharad Brightshield, Obryn the Bold and their leader Severin Steelheart);
– A Khorne Bloodbound warband, made up of 5 push-fit, red plastic Bloodreavers (Karsus the Chained, Blooded Saek, Targor, Arnulf and their leader Garrek Gorebeard.) Both of these warbands are Easy To Build, with no glue necessary and a comprehensive, easy to follow construction guide;
– A 32-page rulebook, including the story of Shadespire’s rise and fall, and all the rules you need to play; – A quick-start sheet, featuring a brief introduction to the game;
– 2 double-sided game boards, featuring hexes and objectives;
– 2 pre-built decks of power and objective cards, for use with the included warbands;
– 8 double-sided Fighter cards, providing the stats and information needed for the fighters in each warband at a glance;
– 5 attack dice and 3 defence dice;
– 9 double-sided objective tokens;

Extra Rules

Warhammer Underworlds has an intense, fast and fun core ruleset, but the book contains a host of extras – new game modes, competitive and multiplayer rules:

– Matched Play: designed for competitive play, this is a set of rules that level the playing field to the finest degree – perfect for fast, friendly rivalries and tournaments;
– Capture the Artefact: use the included Katophrane Artefact token as a discovery to battle over – glory points are awarded for holding it, but your opponent will be sure to take it by force;
– Multiplayer games: extra rules that allow you to combine 2 core sets of Warhammer Underworlds to create 3-or-4-player games, with clarified rules for resolving attacks and adjustments to victory conditions.

Book 46: Ruinstorm $30

The Horus Heresy Book 46

With Imperium Secundus a failed dream, the primarchs of the Triumvirate swear to reach Terra and defend the Imperium’s heart. But danger awaits them, and their destinies are in their hands…

READ IT BECAUSE
It’s an explosive end to the Imperium Secundus storyline and sees the march to Terra and that final battle begin in earnest.

THE STORY
Imperium Secundus lies revealed as a heretical folly. Terra has not fallen, though it remains inaccessible. Sanguinius, Guilliman and the Lion El’Johnson, the primarchs of the Triumvirate, must reach Terra at all costs. They seek to defend the Emperor, and to atone for their sins. But the Ruinstorm, a galaxy-wide maelstrom of chaos, hides the Throneworld from the primarchs. Now the fleets of three Legions depart Macragge, and the primarchs will stop at nothing to overcome the Ruinstorm. Yet an insidious enemy watches their every move, and plots against the weaknesses of the errant sons of the Emperor. Each has his own inner storm, and each marches towards his own ruin.

  • DoctorBored

    After watching some more games, I think I will be getting this.

  • ZeroTheHero

    Having tried the game now a few times i like it alot. I really hope underworlds is supported for the long term it has so much potential.

  • Kociamber

    Give me that game in LOTR setting! 😀

  • I_am_Alpharius

    All looking like a pretty sweet product (s). From all the WH-Com articles on the various bits of follow up support (models and competition), it would seem GW is hoping this game (which is quite a departure for GW) will have some legs in it. No doubt if the style of game is a success then GW will consider a similar game for 40K; it could easily be set in the Eye of Terror, sealed of Webway section or some kind of Necron Necropolis.
