Warhammer News – Codexes, Warqueens and Skaven, oh my!

Hot off the presses from Blood and Glory comes an exciting splatter of Warhammer news! We’ve got enough here to cover all of the big systems right now; 40K, Sigmar and the new Shadespire!

First up, for all your fans of the grim far future, Games Workshop has announced the next run of new codex releases. Codex Adeptus Astartes: Blood Angels and Codex Adeptus Astartes: Dark Angels will reportedly both be out before Christmas. They’ve also confirmed that 2018 will be ushered in by a new Chaos Daemons Codex, too!


Next up for all you fans of swords and shields over bolters and power fists. Games Workshop have teased some sort of dark transition in the Age of Sigmar. In their words “Something dark is gathering and the age of hope is drawing to a close.”. Well, isn’t that quite foreboding?! They’ve backed this up with a very small teaser video as can be seen below.

They’ve also shown off a brand new model that may or may not have something to do with the gathering darkness. You can see below the new Darkoath Warqueen. Seemingly the boss of the Darkoath Chieftain from the Silver Tower box, she looks simply fantastic.

Finally, *phew*, they’ve rounded it all up by announcing the brand new Shadespire faction – Spiteclaw’s Swarm! This release of five new Skaven models into the City of Mirrors will likely have many of you excited. Not just for the new fighters but also due to them coming with new power and objective cards for your existing Shadespire warbands. Such skittering, many claws.

Well, that’s the crux of all the latest Warhammer news, folks. That’s quite a healthy offering of news. We’ll be sure to keep you lot in the know if anything else most noteworthy drops. But until then, we’ll see you on the tabletop. Remember to stop by our Facebook for our latest posts and news.
