Current TBC 40k releases (updated Feb 1)

  • Four Combat Patrol sets for Custodes, GK, GSC, TSons
  • Codex: Aeldari plus models (likely 2+ waves)
  • Fronteris-style terrain set
  • Unspecified Tyranids release


  • https://www.warhammer-community.com/2021/12/28/warhammer-40000-seasons-are-going-to-change-the-way-you-conquer-the-galaxy/

    There’s a new concept coming to Warhammer 40,000 in 2022 – seasons. They’re a new way to explore the vast setting of the war-torn 41st Millennium in much greater detail.

    Each season will last six months, focusing on a different corner of the galaxy and all the fighting that’s happening there – we’ll be witnessing pivotal flashpoints where the outcome of battles will have major consequences for the grim, dark future. Each season will be supported by the release of new miniatures, rules, and more – it’s an exciting time to be a Warhammer 40,000 fan.

    We’ve got Stu Black from the Warhammer 40,000 design studio to explain exactly what seasons are and how they’ll work.

    The first season returns us to Vigilus,* where the fighting is far from over. The Imperium has a fragile hold on the planet – and therefore the narrow corridor of space that acts as a safe corridor into Imperium Nihilus – but it’s a single speck amidst a rising tide of Chaos.

    Your return to War Zone Nachmund** will play out with a new campaign book. Similar to the War Zone Octarius books, it will feature new army rules, including an Army of Renown and a Codex Supplement, along with legendary missions, Crusade rules for fighting on Vigilus, and ways to link your games together in a campaign so you really feel like you’re fighting for control of the gateway to the other half of the galaxy.

    Along with the campaign book, there will be a new Crusade mission pack, featuring 24 new missions, extra Requisitions, Agendas and Battle Traits, and a War of Faith campaign system that sees your army casting down false idols and their worshippers for greater rewards from your own deities.

    The first season introduces a new Grand Tournament Mission pack, which provides the framework for the next six months of competitive play. There will be new missions, new secondary objectives, and updated points costs for the armies in Warhammer 40,000.

    It’s not just the Imperium and Chaos fighting, though – the Aeldari are coming to the party. We revealed the new Eldritch Omens boxed set on Christmas Day, which is also set in the Nachmund Gauntlet.
    Behind the scenes, the Nachmund sector is full of special operatives undertaking deadly missions behind enemy lines. Yes, the next Kill Team boxed set will also be set in the Nachmund Gauntlet, and includes two splendid new kill teams.

    Hmm.

    Interesting.

    Wonder if these might be 6 month long global campaign equivalents? As ever the proof will be in the pudding, but my interest is piqued.

    While I see how this can thematically tie releases together as well as provide more churn for different War Zone releases, I wish there were also some sort of global campaign to tie things together. They just need to make it so that the stakes for the campaign, regardless of any outcome, don't ruin whatever plans they have down the line. Otherwise for example for Vigilus I just personally just feel another sense of "ho hum, I can see the scripted story template already. Chaos attacks. Things look dark. Craftworld Eldar intervene and dispense fortune cookie words of wisdom. Designated Imperial hero of the story rides in with the reinforcements and yet again wins "against the odds" in a altogether expected miracle of the Emperor, and Chaos retreats, shaking their fist and vowing next time."

    Things like the old Eye of Terror campaign brought surprises because despite event cards laying out a similar template, player action caused significant divergence from that. Things like the Orks taking over a forge world were not planned for and came about as a result of emergent behavior from the global Ork players.

    Cynical me thinks this is just an excuse to churn out rule supplements that are then only accepted by the general player base for 1 season, outside of one's immediate circle of gaming friends.

    They're as likely as taxes and death sadly. It's an odd one, the vocal competitive chunk of the community wanted objectives and missions reviewing more frequently so this is the natural outcome, but for anyone else I think this is a questionable situation.

    Interesting concept. I guess this is the release avenue for models outside of the Codex release cycle? Unless GW decide to crowbar Tau into Vigilus(to be fair I think they were the only faction that doesn't have forces present or existing plot hooks)
    But the rules turnover is pretty rapid these days, so my main interest for this is in the background. While I did enjoy that side of the original Vigilus books, the current Warzone supplements(the few I have read) have personally been a bit disappointing on the fluff front.

    I’m really considering moving on from Warhammer at this point. The churn is getting pretty exhausting to keep up with.

    The concept of focusing releases on a zone is pretty cool. Can theme terrain packs, army and kill team releases. However, every 6 months is a lot if it actually impacts tournament rules in a big way.

    Privateer press did something similar, and it was terrible, with new theme armies every 6 months, which is not enough time to actually build and play it before it is outdated again.

    We already know it's Corsairs for Eldar. The question is who's the opponent.

    This doesn't sound any different from what they've already been doing. It's just different branding. I don't like it, but it's just more of the same of what they've been doing for 9th edition, just with different packaging.

    But please don't tell me they're going to release this before the new CSM codex. And are they really recycling the cover from that codex? *spits*

    Did they say anything about a new CSM codex ? No, they didnt. So you will play a campaign with an old codex against eldar with a new codex.

    Ok, thanks! I hope that this discord source is mistaken because for me Scorpions are more shiny than Corsairs
