40k Review- Apocalypse Warzone Pandorax

3 Minute Read
Nov 7 2013

The newest supplement for Apocalypse Wazone Pandorax has just released, and if you’re a fan of the super heavy this book is for you.

Besides being a good book in general, Games Workshop published rules for several “custom” super heavies and Forge World models that have not had an Apocalypse update yet.

Chief among them being the Greater Brass Scorpion, Tower of Skulls, and Plague Reaper respectively.

Warzone Pandorax follows the story of a full scale Chaos incursion into the Pandorax subsector by Abaddon himself to recover some sort of relic of millennia past for a nefarious use by the Warmaster at a later date.
The Dark Angels also make appearance an entire chapter, as well as the de facto Imperial Guard and Navy elements that are seemingly always present at any give time in any system.



You may recognize this piece amazing artwork from this book (above), but had no idea where it came from originally.


The book itself is roughly 68 pages long, and contains about twenty pages of “new” data sheets as well as about eight pages of new scenarios, assets and finest hours for the factions involved.

I say new in quotation marks because this book was actually included in with the Apocalypse Collectors edition back in July.



Rescue the Revenge is the featured battle report which features a rather overly ambitious tabletop playing space consisting of the interior of a starship and various asteroid / void elements around it. They pulled it off great, and it’s featured as the book’s centerfold as well.



Rules of Engagement features all the new assets, scenarios, and other special rules that are unique to this book, and is followed by the Datasheets section when I have summarize below for those interested in what maybe now available for their faction(s).
