Games Workshop has been showing off the new pre-orders for two new warbands in Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire as well as some accessories which might fit the bill for those looking to add some bling to their games.
The Sepulchral Guard and Ironskull’s Boyz are the next warbands to be added into the game. By now we’ve talked about them a lot and you can find out more about them through our Unboxings which we’ve posted here on BoW.
Both warbands are certainly interesting and bring new mechanics to the game on the tabletop as well as plenty of additional options for going forward into the meta.
Dice To Meet You
As well as the new models for the warbands some specific sets of dice have also become available for pre-order which focus in on the four different factions.
The Stormcast Eternals from the original set as well as the Khorne Bloodbound are getting their own dice. Each set comes with some semi-translucent dice as well as three black dice for your own personal set.
In addition, the two new warbands also have their own themed dice with green for the Ironjawz…
…and purple for the Deathrattle selection; the shambling undead always gets the best colours.
While this is a simple colour change for the dice, it’s nice to see Games Workshop adding a few ways to add some personality to your faction of choice.
Sleeve Your Cards
A similar approach is taken to the new card sleeves for both the Sepulchral Guard…
…and Ironskullz Boyz. So, if you want to add to your collection and keep all of the cards for your deck safe then these are now certainly an option.
Whether or not this game is going to actually be a hit is certainly something we’ll find out in short order, but with tournaments planned by Games Workshop very soon, it will be interesting to see how it settles down within the gaming community.
