Games Workshop Reveal Shadow War: Armageddon For Warhammer 40,000

March 15, 2017 by brennon

The Warhammer 40,000 world is being rocked by the announcement of a new game system based in its grimdark future. Shadow War: Armageddon takes ‘Kill Teams’ and expands upon them with Necromunda-esque rules which will add to your skirmishing in the dark twisted metal world of Armageddon.

Shadow War Armageddon

Inside the game box, you’re going to be getting a set of Space Marine Scouts and some Ork Boyz to use as the basis of your Kill Team on the tabletop. This can be expanded using the Warhammer 40,000 range and they are also going to have rules for a dozen other factions too for those not liking power armour or green.

The rules will then expand out to allow you to upgrade and add to your Kill Teams as you fight through missions giving the game a narrative campaign structure too.

Modular Terrain

The real star of the show though is the modular terrain kit which comes in the box.

Shadow War Terrain

This Industrial terrain, based on the designs that would cover the Hive, looks fantastic with plenty of walkways, chimneys and archaic mechanisms for your Kill Teams to fight around. As you’ll see in the video above they can be assembled in a variety of different ways.

This might have been why we saw those 4×4 mats late last year, as a precursor to this game coming to hit the shelves. The terrain looks great and with some of the other plastic kits out there from Games Workshop, you could make quite the dense tabletop.

Will you be joining in and fighting the Shadow War?
