Check Out 40K’s Latest Incarnation

June 25, 2012 by dracs

Are you guys excited about the latest edition of the 40K rules? Want to get your hands on it? Well now you can head over to Games Workshop and pre-order your copy. Let the excitement commence!

The art style of the cover is very different to the previous iterations of the 40K rulebook, this time going for the full depiction of all out war. It is also refreshing to see Games Workshop using a chapter other than their usual poster boys, the Ultramarines.

The Dark Angels definitely appear to be receiving a lot of love from Games Workshop here which can only be good news for my favourite chapter.

The book will be 452 pages of full colour, detailing all the rules and background you need to get to grips with the world of 40K, including rules for:

“dynamic close-combat, flyers, psychic devastation and interactive scenery.”

As with the previous release of the latest edition of Warhammer Fantasy, Games Workshop are releasing some new accessories to go along with the new rules, from decorative templates to a pack of psychic power cards.

“This set contains 35 large-format cards and come stored in a plastic fan-opening case, which bears the Aquila. There are 7 cards for each Psychic Discipline, each of which is represented by distinct artwork. There is also an instruction leaflet that classifies which powers can be used by the main Psykers in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.”

Hmm, from the video (see above) it’s obvious that there have been some pretty substantial changes made to the rules. How these shall play out, only time shall tell. I just can’t wait to read the fluff.

If you want to pre-order this then please form an orderly stampede to the Games Workshop website.
