40K: Enhanced Shadow Wars Rulebook Coming!

2 Minute Read

GW is working overtime on a new enhanced version of the Shadow Wars Armageddon rulebook. It’s coming very soon.

Every Grimdark fan out there is trying to lie, cheat or steal to grab a copy of the Shadow Wars Armageddon – but the demand is just outstripping the supply. We all know GW wont let a potential mega hit fall down on the job, so they are rushing a new product to market to sate customer demand.

“Following the unprecedented demand for this game, our book team have thrown themselves into creating a new rulebook you’ll be able to order separately. Not content just to make the book a copy of the one that appears in the boxed game, though, they have also added in all the extra content too: all the factions that have had their rules published as PDFs will be included. And, following numerous requests we’ve received from the community (that’s you), we’ll be adding in two new factions – the Battle Sisters of the Adepta Sororitas and warbands from the Inquisition.”


Warbands Included

So it will include the following factions:

  • Space Marines
  • Astra Millitarum
  • Orks
  • Ad Mech – Skitarii
  • Chaos Marines
  • Craftworld Eldar
  • Dark Eldar Wyches
  • Harlequins
  • Tau Pathfinders
  • Necrons
  • Grey Knights
  • Deathwatch
  • Genestealer Cults
  • Tyranids
  • Sisters of Battle
  • Inquisitorial Warbands



They must be doing a rush job at the printers – GW says to look for the new book April 22nd (in 2 weeks)!

No word on prices but I’m hoping it’s cheap and clicks in at about the price of the General’s Handbook.

~Get ready for the underhive folks!
