Looks like Games Workshop spilled the beans on themselves today as to the upcoming Mont’ka campaign book and what’s in it early.

Games Workshop’s new bundles have a surprise in their descriptions:

A list of new War Zone Damocles: Mont’ka formations from the new bundles on GW’s site today:

 2015-11-14_2148

Emperor’s Shield Infantry Platoon

This bundle gives you everything needed to field the Emperor’s Shield Infantry Platoon, a formation found in War Zone Damocles: Mont’ka. You’ll receive a Cadian Command Squad, two sets of Cadian Shock Troops, two Cadian Heavy Weapons Squads and three Sentinels – thirty-four models in total, for an awesome Astra Militarum strike force!

Tau Rapid Insertion Force

This bundle contains everything necessary to field the Rapid Insertion Force, a Tau Empire formation found in War Zone Damocles: Mont’ka. You’ll receive an XV25 Stealth Team (three Battlesuits and a markerlight Drone), three XV8 Crisis Battlesuit Teams (nine Battlesuits and six accompanying Drones), and an imposing XV104 Riptide Battlesuit with two Drones of its own. Twenty-two examples of the might of the Greater Good!

 

Looks like new these will play a roll in the new campaign book that’s rumored to be headed our way in just one week. Now let’s take a look back at the rumors from just a few days ago, that seem to already be on the right track:

Q: K’Vor do you know if the campaign is set for pre orders next week or is still on the 20th that we are looking at?

A: Pre-orders are that weekend (21st) for Mont’ka. Farsight codex is Feb 2016. Q1\2 next year also sees a bit more for Tau, campaign-wise.

The Friday/Saturday notwithstanding, that pre-order weekend (November 20th) is correct. 

No Tau models, but a mix of Imperial things, notably repackaged black-clad operatives hunting O’Shova.

Mont’ka will be out Nov 20th, and that FSE 7E is on schedule for Q1 2016.

Editor’s note: Imperial forces discussed are are: Assassins, Astartes, Astra Militarum

K’vor’s source had nothing to say other than Q1 and that FSE (Farsight Envclave) was coming.

So if guard is invloved it stands to reason that the assassins from the previous the Execution Force came out last April, will also be making their way to store shelves individual clam-pack form.

Will we get the Heresy Game, then MORE Tau, and the Assassins, before plunging into December?
