Games Workshop is showing off all the models from the upcoming Warcry: Catacombs! We finally get a look at all the Khainite Shadowstalkers!

It’s been a long time coming and GW has been teasing us all with hints but we finally get a look at the full warband of the Khainite Shadowstalkers and the Scions of the Flame. These two warbands are going to be available in Warcry: Catacombs so let’s take a look at them!

Khainite Shadowstalkers

We got our first look at these models back during Warhammer Preview 3. Now we can see the rest of the Warband. From the looks of things we are gettin 9 unique models from this kit. There is certainly a mix of models pulling from different themes of the Shadow Aelves that we’ve seen in AoS and previous editions of Warhammer. We’ve got Witches, Assassins, and even some element of the Mistweaver Saih. I also like the nod to the old school Dark Elves with their hand crossbows. Nice touch!


Scions of the Flame

Not to be out done, we also get another look at the full Scions of the Flame warband. We’ve seen most of these models before so it’s less surprising – but that doesn’t mean these models are any less impressive. Both of these sets will be in the new Warcry: Catacombs box which looks to have a ton of stuff inside:


Aside from the two warbands, the box includes:

  • A 30″ x 22″ double-sided, fold-out gameboard
  • 37 pieces of dungeon terrain
  • Full Core Book
  • Catacombs book with background and additional rules
  • All the extra game aides to play (dice, range ruler, tokens)

Anyone else think these doors are straight out of a certain board game involving a broadsword?

There is an indoor setting so it does make sense.


I can’t wait to see those Shadowstalkers in person. Catacombs is going up for pre-order this weekend. Get ready for some more Warcry!
