Breaking news from the Gama Trade Show, a brand new boxed game has just been announced – Shadow War: Armageddon.

Some of the Warhammer Community team are currently at the huge trade show in Las Vegas, and are showcasing some of the exciting new releases on the way over the next few months. The first of these is Shadow War: Armageddon.

Right now we don’t have a huge amount of detail on this set (though we will, very soon), but what we do know is that it is a squad-level game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. The specific setting is the hive cities of War Zone: Armageddon, and the two forces pitted against each other are Space Marines Scouts from the Blood Angels Chapter and ferocious Ork Boyz.

We think the idea of close-range combat amongst the sprawling ruins of Imperial industry sounds pretty ace.

We’ll have more news for you on this game, as well as other new releases, over the next several hours, so stay posted!

Shadow War: Armageddon is the spiritual successor to Necromunda and due out VERY SOON. Comes in a MASSIVE (stressed a lot) box full of multilevel terrain, Space Marines, Orks and of course rules. The rules cover 16-17 different factions, so most/all 40k armies are covered.

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/03/12/big-news-coming-this-week/

We’re only just into month 3 of 2017, and already we have had an absolutely awesome year of Warhammer.

In the Mortal Realms, we’ve seen a new faction introduced with the Disciples of Tzeentch, reinforcements for the Stormcast Eternals, and we’ve explored one of the new metropolises of the Free Peoples as the timeline of the Age of Sigmar marches on and new cities are founded. But the galaxy changing events happening in the 41st Millennium makes that looks practically pedestrian – we’ve already seen Cadia fall, a craftworld fracture, a god birthed, and a Primarch rise.


And we are not done yet, not by a long shot.

We promised 2017 was going to be an awesome year for both Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar and we meant it.

Over the next few weeks, the Warhammer Community team will be attending several events around the world, and we’ll be showing off some of the incredible new releases coming in the next few months, as well as a few projects the studios have been working on.

You’ll see the first of these big reveals this week, right here on the Warhammer Community site, so keep your eyes peeled, and follow our Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000 Facebook pages so we can let you know when the news hits.

After that, there will be more news the following week, from the AdeptiCon event.

What’s it going to be?

It’s all very exciting, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Huh. Wonder what that could be. Personally, I would have preferred them not to tell us, since they've been so vague its only asked more questions. One of them has to be Steampunk Duardin though.

GW; please, STAHP. From stopping buying your miniatures because I hated how bloated 40k was and only playing Malifaux, I have been insta-buying all the Gathering Storm books, started Ironjawz, and pray for a revolution with the 8th edition rules. My wallet can't take much more of a beating

I'm looking forward to seeing Steamhead Duardin - simply because I'm typically put off by Steampunk (without judgement of its admirers, I find it a tired, hackneyed trope relied on by writers of limited imagination).

Could GW offer something to challenge my wider prejudice?

They are going to announce AoS Slannesh the reforming of the old world, along with plastic sisters and the return of the squats for 40k, oh and the long anticipated expansions for dread fleet.....

But seriously I am guessing steam dwarves and maybe some Aelf sneak peeks for AoS and something about the upcoming 8th for 40K

As much as I desperately want this, and would be more than happy to drop set aside ~$500 to start building an army the moment the announcement dropped, I know it won't be the case. Sisters (and guard, because I might as well mention them somewhere, we all know GW won't) will continue to do little more than die off in the background, because at the end of the day, they'll never be Ultramarines. Meanwhile, the Sisters of Silence will have totally been around all along as a fully formed army because reasons.

Personally I hope they have the same body type as Greyfax and the Sisters of Silence instead of what Celestine and here Geminae have...


Although I have to disagree here. I love the Celestine/Geminae models, and would love to see an expanded army of them. The only thing is that I don't want any more of those 'toilet paper at the end of the shoe' bits of parchment attached.

Well if it doesn't then I nominate this as their theme song.

Well last year they announced the next five years of AoS were ready and planned out so that'd mean AoS surpassed 40k by two years! (/jk)

Yeah, they're on a roll (in a good way)

I started a 30K army and am eagerly awaiting Adeptus Titanicus. A year ago I wouldn't have considered either, but GW are really showing positive signs in just about every area. Very encouraging to see!

He was a pretty mixed bag, to put it delicately. Alan Merret was nice by comparison.

Sadly, they left so close together that we'll never, outside of a few GW staff, really know how much was Kirby and how much was Alan Merrett.

Kirby, for all his faults, probably saved GW from oblivion back in the 90s, he just lacked the self awareness to realise the company had gone beyond his talent to manage it and the humility to listen to or cede control to people who were better positioned to do that.

Merrett, it seems, was an instrumental force in holding the game and model production back because of his own personal ideas.

It's just good for GW and their fans that both are now gone or sidelined.

Off-topic comment about Kirby:
Spoiler:

I wouldn't say that, he just was really, reallly, bad at the "gaming" side of the hobby. Like every gaming industry, you have guys that know both sides of the business and then you have guys who only know about business and let the game side suffer.

He was the latter.

To his credit he kept GW from going under a couple of times in the past but he was so busy catering to the investors and the "whaling" part of the business that he left a horrible taste in the mouth of the gamers and hobbyists.

So ya know, do a little background checking for yourself and then judge. He'll still be bad but at least not "nuts".

There was a time not too long ago when GW staff / reps would have to flat out deny upcoming releases due that weekend, despite photos being posted online several weeks in advance. The change of priorities has been astounding... a games company that actually has fun with their customers, rather than treating their products like military secrets. Who'da thought that would work?
