‘Battle For Ultramar Campaign Box’ Releasing For ‘Dice Masters’

Partnering with GW, Wizkids will be releasing Dice Masters: Battle for Ultramar Campaign box and Ork and Space Wolves packs.

The campaign box comes with enough for 2 players to play a Dice Masters game with Ultramarines versus Death Guard. The box contains over 12 characters from the Warhammer 40k franchise, including Ultramarines Primarch Roboute Guilliman and Chief Librarian Tigurius, as well as the Deathguard heroes Typhus and Mortarion.

In addition to the campaign box, Wizkids is releasing two separate Team Packs: Orks WAAAGH! and Space Wolves.

The Orks pack comes with the Prophet of Mork and Gork, Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka and enough Boyz and Warbikes for a proper Waaagh!

The Space Wolves pack comes with The Sons Of Russ Chapter Master, Logan Grimnar and the Venerable Dreadnought which is more than enough to ensure glory for Fenris!

    Would have preferred them bring back 40k Conquest. :

      You broke my hear the other day referencing this. Why do you reopen those wounds?

  • dynath

    I had forgotten Dice Masters still existed. Does anyone play collectible dice building games? Are they fun? I mean the part I dislike most of 40k is rolling 90 dice… Just wondering.

    • Xodis

      Apparently Star Wars Destiny is growing pretty big, but I have no local evidence to support that.

      • LankTank

        Are Destiny and Dice Masters very similar? The only thing that really put me off Destiny is the blind blister pack model. That is why I have always gone for LCG’s such Netrunner, Arkham and by beloved and missed Conquest

        • Xodis

          I honestly can’t answer that, I don’t play either.

      Dice Masters is fun.

      • dynath

        What’s fun about it? Not trying to be snarky I am genuinely interested. I’ve never had anyone willing to play these dice games… I take that back my nephew was into the Yugioh one when he was 12. It all seemed to abstract.

        • I loved the game and own way too much of it. Basically, it’s just a deck-building game but with dice and a unique system of dice-given power, actions, and buying of more dice. I did a write-up many moons ago, check it out at http://jaysworkshop-agemmanjw.blogspot.com/2015/01/dice-and-cards-and-dice-and-cards-and.html (not shameless plug, just too lazy to type right now)

          • LankTank

            As I was saying above, I get turned off by CCG market models. LCG are so much better. Any idea if Dice Marsters is going to be blind blisters?
            The fact that they state specific named characters in each pack suggests no?

          • I’m not sure on that. I asked about that myself and my guy said that there are booster packs, but I couldn’t find them on the trade form yet. I would assume so just because, well, that’s how those things work. And I totally understand as that’s what turned me off as well (spending over $200 on boosters for AvX and STILL missing two of the super-rares!). But 40k! 🙂

          It is abstract, Dice Masters is basically craps with wargame/rpg elements in it. It is going to have crazy power creep, like all things Wizkids but if it is like the Marvel or DC versions each character will get their own set of dice, which is a good to balance system. Another thing is that it plays fast too so if you are into an IP but want to get in a lunch hour game, this allows you too without any pressure on time. I hope it does well, I remember really liking High Command but it never took off in a big way. I liked it because it was fast, a break form wargaming, but still allowed me to enjoy the IP without doing a lot of set up.

      Dragon Dice by TSR was a pretty fun collectible dice game from many years ago. Heres the wiki for those interested


      • dynath

        cool. thanks 🙂

    • They seem to sell well st my flgs, I don’t get the appeal but then I don’t get the appeal of magic either

  • marxlives

    Woot woot.

  • Robert Baker

    Welp, we’d have to ask our IG player to play ultrasmurfs, but this is almost the exact faction composition (once you account for secondary factions since I main T’au but have a Death Guard force) of my group of 4 players who are looking for alternative games to play once every four weeks or so when we’re not doign 40k or dnd…..

  • HeadHunter

    When I heard about this partnership I said “I hope it’s not 40K Heroclix”… looking back on that, I’d rather it was.
    Dice games hold no interest for me whatsoever.
