Aug 21 2016


 Come see all the new Deathwatch minis in GW latest Starter set bundle deal of savings. Death Masque is on shelves, will you buy it?

Like Stormclaw, and Deathstorm before it Death Masque offers hobbyists the chance to get some new minis that have not been released yet early buy picking up this bundle deal. However this time there is over $250 in savings by doing so right off the bat!

Plus it comes with a Warhammer 40,000 The Rules book which is never a bad thing either. So its a win-win for GW to pehaps get new players to jump into the Warhammer 40k pool, and give veterans the sweet savings they crave to keep supplying their grey legions of plastic!

The rules supplement for Death Masque also contains datasheets that currently are available no where else, so this box fills the savings, new miniature, and new rules prerequisites that seems to entice so many hobbyists into making the purchase.

It’s almost like Games Workshop knows what we want, before we want it…

Warhammer 40,000: Death Masque $150


Eldrad Ulthran, the most skilled of the Eldar’s prophets and one of the most powerful psykers in the galaxy, whose existence has spanned ten millennia, has put into motion a series of incredible events. Descending upon the planet of Port Demesnus, his intention is to seize its crystal moon, Coheria, for a forbidden ritual capable of awakening a slumbering god…

Watch Captain Artemis – born into violence, recruited into the Mortifactors, his talents in the art of detecting and slaying the merest hint of xenos taint saw him plucked from his Chapter and sworn to lead Kill Teams of the Deathwatch. The first to respond to the distress signals from Port Demesnus, and the first to realise Eldrad Ulthran’s motives, he has diverted his strike force to Coheria.


The battle for this moon, and the events that transpire, will send shocking reverberations throughout the galaxy.

In the Death Masque boxed game, you’ll find two forces of Citadel miniatures with which to re-create the tense battles set upon Port Demesnus. The included booklet contains 3 Echoes of War missions which allow you to play through the story, with full background explaining each battle. Full rules for all the miniatures are included, with an exclusive formation for both forces. Also included is a 208-page softback copy of Warhammer 40,000: The Rules with an exclusive Watch Captain Artemis cover.
