Battle In The Deathworld Forests Of Warhammer 40,000

February 13, 2017 by brennon

You don’t tend to see many forests on the tabletop when you play Warhammer 40,000. Well, Games Workshop put together quite the alien forest over the weekend with the Deathworld Forest

Deathworld Forest

So what exactly is this?

“Deadly, menacing and bizarre, forest deathworlds are attritional battle zones. When a soldier fights on one, they have to withstand not only the vicious artillery of the foe, but the horrifying cluster-vines, crystal shards and strange relics add an extra layer of unimaginable danger.

Shardwrack spines form impenetrable barriers over the millennia, barbed venomgorse and grapple weed snake insidiously toward any living being, pumping them full of debilitating neurotoxin and eldritch ruins resonate with the psychic energies of their long-passed creators. Where there grows a deathworld forest, nothing is safe.”

The set does come with a variety of different options when it comes to gaming. The various types of plants each have their own special rules and you can mix and match as you like.

I’m not entirely sure that it’s worth £80, however interesting a terrain piece it is. Maybe it’s time for you to break out the hobby equipment and have a go at your own alien forest.

What do you think?
