It seemed inevitable that as they joined forces, both Games Workshop and WizKids would be bringing a version of Dice Masters to the tabletop. You’ll be able to get your hands on Battle For Ultramar in the near future…
The set will come with all the cards and dice you need for two players to get stuck into the fighting between the forces of Nurgle and the Ultramarines on the tabletop – just without miniatures! Here’s a taster of some of the cards in the set that have been spoiled so far.
As you can see they’ve got each of the head honchos in the box with Mortarion and Guilliman making an appearance. The artwork seems to be a mix of the work we’ve seen from the Codexes but also some more original pieces too.
This isn’t where it stops either as they also have two sets which you can pick up, adding more forces to the pot. For example, here we have the Orks and Space Wolves.
Dice Masters has the foundations of a good game although you will sometimes find that it devolves into very similar outcomes on the tabletop. Either way, if you liked the Marvel, DC (and more) versions of the game this is a good game to pick up and play.
Could you be tempted by this new tabletop version of Warhammer 40,000?
