Come and join the BoLS crew as we take a look through the new Hedonites of Slaanesh Battletome.

Over the weekend, the Slaaneshi Battletome wet up for pre-order, and that means it’s already out in the wild in some places. Like right here on our YouTube channel, where, today we’re taking you through the new Battletome in a fairly in-depth overview. Everything form Lore to new rules and units, come take a look at what awaits the servants of Slaanesh.

We’re pretty excited to see how the new faction plays out. The new daemons are lithe and elegant, the new models are incredible, and the rules present an army that can leverage hard-hitting fast attacks, with some surprising amounts of resilience in key areas, to make the flow of a game feel exciting and active. The Endless Spells have an interesting variety of new options for your army. If you like rolling 6d6, this is the list of magic spells for you.

Of all the evil forces in the realms, the Hedonites of Slaanesh take the most pleasure in the carnage they wreak…

Slaanesh may be imprisoned – but, with this battletome, his powers are yours to master. This 96-page hardback battletome is your complete guide to the armies of the Dark Prince.

Meanwhile, a number of warscroll battalions, three sets of allegiance abilities, magical spells, command traits, artefacts and more allow you to build deadly Slaanesh armies made up of daemons and mortals alike. What’s more, the book contains painting tips and different colour schemes to inspire your collection, as well as bespoke missions and Path to Glory rules that are perfect for organising your first battles with Slaanesh’s hosts.
