New Warhammer 40k Assassin Game From Games Workshop? [Updated]

April 20, 2015 by brennon

A sneaky trailer has popped up from Games Workshop showing off Officio Assassinorum member (Vindicare, Callidus, Eversor and Culexus) artwork and what appears to be a grid-based board that could be the start of a new board game style experience for Warhammer 40,000.

Update: It seems like this is going to be a self contained product that will lead on to the release of the new plastic Assassins later on down the line. Rumoured contents are…

  • 4x Assassins (one for each of the houses below)
  • Chaos Sorcerer in Terminator Armour
  • 3x Chaos Space Marines
  • 15x Chaos Cultists
  • Tiles, Counters, Dice & Scenario Booklet

…and all of this is remoured to retail for around $100 or so. You can see the new Assassins in all their ‘leaked’ glory HERE.

Callidus

Vindicare

Culexus

Eversor

So, let’s have a think. It would make sense to take these really cool characters from the Warhammer 40,000 fluff (and some of the best models) and then use their very different abilities and styles to make a team of Assassins that has to go up against a cult of Daemon worshippers on some dark and foreboding planet.

Could we see this become something of a Space Hulk type affair where you have one player controlling the Cultists while the other player(s) look after the Assassins?

I could see this being quite the winner if they do go down this route!

What do you think?
