White Dwarf Sneak Peek! Blood Angels Tackle Tyranids

November 25, 2014 by brennon

Much like with Stormclaw Games Workshop have both a new campaign book called Shield of Baal: Deathstorm on the way alongside a new boxed set with both Blood Angels and Tyranids inside. Another new injection of fun for Warhammer 40,000?

Sheild of Baal WD

The first few leaks came through showing off the new Blood Angel Captain who has himself a name much like Krom Dragongaze did in the Stormclaw box and it comes with a few other additions too…

Blood Angel Vs Tyranid Preview

It sounds like a neat looking set which you can see in the image above. Not exactly the best way to start off an army for Warhammer 40,000 in my opinion since it doesn’t come with what you’d assume would be the standard troop choices like Tactical Marines and ‘Gants of some description. However, since this is a fluff based set built for a campaign it’s understandable. I guess it would have been rather boring to just include what you see in every other faction.

Once again this WILL be limited edition so once it’s gone it’s gone.

Will you be keeping an eye on the webstore come Friday?
