40K NEWS: Spearhead Arrives

2 Minute Read
May 28 2010

As of Friday, May 28 the new Warhammer 40,000 Spearhead formation rules are available for free download on the Games Workshop website. Further rules and information are available in the June issue of White Dwarf released on Saturday, May 29.

There are twelve types of Spearhead formations with the following names:

– Armoured
– Ambush
– Mechanized Asault
– Tank Hunter
– Archeotech
– Outrider
– Skyfall
– Monstrous
– Mass Attack
– Crusher
– Seek And Destroy
– Super-Heavy

So, after you’ve had the chance to visit the GW website and explore the rules for each of these formations, which ones do you think are the most tactically useful? Which ones do you think will be the most fun and entertaining? How many of you will be adding to your model collections in order to be able to use specific formations and which ones are most likely to get you to buy some new models? Have a blast!

Personally I am quite enthusiastic about Spearhead. Since starting an Imperial Guard army in 2006 and then the release of 40K Apocalypse in 2007 I’ve become quite a “treadhead”. All my armies that have tanks have multiple tanks now as well as copious Walker collections. I’m really looking forward to trying out some of these formations in games. Any expansion to 40K that makes it easier to play with more models suits me and my model collection very well.

On a final note, many of our US readers will be enjoying a three-day weekend as the Memorial Day holiday approaches. Let’s remember why this weekend is a holiday by remembering those to whom the holiday is dedicated. To everyone in the armed forces, thank you for your service. And to all the BoLS readers out there, have a fun, safe, weekend everyone!
