Phoenix Rising is a Campaign book that kicks off the Psychic Awakening series. As the Aeldari, Drukhari, and Ynnari rush headlong towards their doom, we get a look at things to come. Is this the start of 40K’s End Times and the beginning of the Age of 40K? Well, the Sisters of Battle are soon due to come out…
The first in an upcoming series of Psychic Awakening books, Phoenix Rising recounts the seismic events that may well change the future of the Aeldari race forever. Desperate alliances will be forged against ancient enemies. Hope and despair will become entwined. The mightiest champions of the Asuryani, Drukhari and Ynnari will fight as one to prevent their ultimate doom.
In addition to a trio of exciting Echoes of War missions, Phoenix Rising includes rules for two Theatres of War – High Altitude and Maiden World – that you can apply to any of your battles. There are also the updated datasheets for all of the new miniatures from Blood of the Phoenix, as well as a number of other key Characters and units from the narrative.
And that’s just the start! There are loads of new rules and abilities for the Asuryani and Drukhari – an entire codex expansion’s worth of content! These include Exarch Power options for each Aspect temple, a third psychic discipline in the Runes of Fortune and new customisable Craftworld Attributes that work like the Successor Tactics in Codex: Space Marines! You’ll also find rules for Drukhari Obsessions (specifically for the Kabals, Wych Cults and Haemonculus Covens), and the full set of Ynnari rules first featured in May’s issue of White Dwarf.
But that’s hardly all you can be expecting. Let’s get to those minis, which are releasing in the new Blood of the Phoenix Battlebox!
And of course their big psychic sword-fighty leaders, Drazhar and Jain Zar.
And you’ll get a 40-page campaign book that adds some back story to the conflict, as well as introducing new rules for Jain Zar and Drazhar, turning them into combat cuisinarts if they get into contact with your enemies.
n addition to the miniatures, Blood of the Phoenix includes a 40-page campaign book telling the tale of the ancient grudge between those who fled the Fall aboard the space-faring Craftworlds and those who arrogantly continued the dark practices that first damned their race.
The action then follows Drazhar’s quest to cement his place in legend by slaying a Phoenix Lord in combat, and you can refight each stage of his bloodthirsty journey with three Echoes of War missions that are inspired by the narrative. Finally, the book features all of the datasheets for the models in the battlebox – including the awesome new rules for Jain Zar and Drazhar, both of whom are now utterly terrifying!
All this is due out next week, so stay tuned for more exciting previews as we head towards a Psychic Awakening!
