2 Minute Read
Apr 12 2011

Games Workshop pulled the cover off a new release window for Warhammer Fantasy coming this July. All the details are within…

Here’s the juicy bits of the press release:

Announcing the impending arrival of Storm of Magic, the latest and largest Expansion for Warhammer, the Game of Fantasy Battles. Launched in July 2011, Storm of Magic describes what happens when great eldritch maelstroms roil across the lands. Magic becomes far more powerful and there is a whole range of Cataclysm spells to cast, unleashing untold devastation on the enemy. Arcane Fulcrums burst from the ground, not only acting as loci for the swirling energies that pervade a battle fought amidst the Storm of Magic, but changing the way a Warhammer tabletop looks and interacts with your armies. With such things so crucial to your Storm of Magic games a new range of Warhammer scenery and Wizards will soon be released in time for you to wage cataclysmic battles.

Then there are the monsters. When the Winds of Magic blow with such strength, the fell creatures of the world gravitate towards the tempest, slithering from deep tunnels or emerging from mountain lairs.

With the new Expansion allowing you to use so many different creatures there are a whole host of new monstrous plastic kits on their way.

And there are the two teaser pics of kits.

~So, basically this sounds like an expanded Magic ruleset for Fantasy accompanying a set of monster kits. I’ll let you folks figure out what the two beasties are, and I’m getting a “planetstrike/spearhead” vibe from this whole thing.  More comments and details in the Lounge here.
