So what exactly is Shield of Baal?
2 volume hardcover narrative campaign set.
Covers the invasion of the Sheildworlds of Baal by Hivefleet Leviathan
The initial set is only the first volume detailing the invasion.
It involves Tyranids vs Astra Militarum, Tempestus Strikeforces, Adepta Sororitas.
Volume 1 is 152pp, narrative campaign book (no rules) detailing this phase of the invasion.
Volume 2 is 64pp of rules including:
– 6 narrative scenarios
– Cities of Death campaign expansion
– Fighter Aces rules for games of 40k ~OHH NEAT!
– New Tyranid detachments, units, formations, and more.
With no Blood Angels in sight, it’s a good bet this campaign will have at least one more set, and let’s not forget the Blood Angels codex itself floating out there somewhere in the near future.
