Orks Take On Tau & Deathwatch On The Horizon In 40k

February 20, 2016 by brennon

Games Workshop have been showing off some more additions to the world of Warhammer 40,000 this week. First off we have a new Start Collecting set for the Orks. This is then supported by some additional books…


This will help you get going in Warhammer 40,000 with Orks. Inside you get a Painboy, five Nobz with an Ammo Runt, eleven Boyz and also a massive stomping Deff Dread.

Start Collecting Orks

Of course as with all of the Start Collecting sets this also comes with a data sheet which allows you to play with this combination of troops on the tabletop.

Forces Collected

On top of that we also have two books which lead the way for all manner of upgrade sets. First off we have Waaagh! Ghazghkull…

Waaagh Ghazghkull

“This 80 page softback book holds the details of the savage splendour of the most famous Ork invasion force to ever take over a planet. From the strange tale of how Ghazghkull took his first fateful steps towards his unlikely destiny as ultimate overlord of the largest Waaagh! in the galaxy, to the rules that allow you to arrange your collection of Citadel Miniatures into Formations and Detachments from Ghazghkull’s army.”

…and in addition the Farsight Enclave book too.

Farsight Enclaves

“This revised and updated supplement to Codex: Tau Empire allows you to tailor your collection of Tau miniatures into a force from the Farsight Enclaves, armed to the teeth and ready for battle.”

There are also a whole bunch of other sets you can look at picking up from Games Workshop including huge armies and character sets which allow you to tailor your force in a particular way.

Deathwatch Coming

On top of that there was also the teaser video you saw at the top of the page. It looks like the Deathwatch are coming to Warhammer 40,000 with a new set. It’s seemingly time to purge the xenos!

Will you be picking up that new Ork set?
