Leviathan Book Spews More 40k Tyranids! [Updated!]

November 11, 2014 by brennon

It looks like the Tyranid swarm hasn’t finished it’s attack yet from Games Workshop. More leaks have popped up showing off a campaign supplement for Shield of Baal called Leviathan…

Shield of Baal - Leviathan

Leviathan Sneak Peek

This means you’re getting some rules and some background in this slipcase set for both Tyranids and Blood Angels (hence the Baal bit). I imagine we’re going to see this follow the same line of thought they had with Sanctus Reach and that means we’re going to get a lot of Warhammer 40,000 over the next few weeks and probably the whole of November.

According to the background in the leaked White Dwarf images you’ll be taking on a series of scenarios for the Cryptus System involving Astra Militarum and Militarum Tempestus forces alongside the Adeptus Sororitas but there’s little mention of the Blood Angels themselves.

There will also be rules for Cities of Death, Fighter Aces in the skies and a supplement following the Hive Fleet Leviathan giving you new rules for using them.

Invasion Swarms Painting Guide

As well as the book there will be a new painting guide for dealing with your Tyranid swarm and some of the miniatures we’ve seen in leaks from last week including Venomthropes and Neurothropes.



So could this essentially mean we’re getting a focus towards the Tyranids, Imperial Guard and Sisters of Battle but no such luck for Blood Angels? Maybe they’re actually going to appear in whatever campaign boxed set comes out following this book release?

Are you looking forward to more Blood Angels?
