The release of Warhammer Underworlds: Harrowdeep this weekend, players from all types of tabletop medium enjoy the release of the new boxed set. Myself, I am incredibly keen on getting my hands on the new set, as a card and board gamer in my core - this feels as if it will be the catalyst of my Warhammer adventure!

Warhammer Underworlds Roadmap // Games Workshop

However, if you are anything like me and before you enter a game system (especially one that plans to be as expandable as Warhammer Underworlds!), you will want to be assured that there is a breadth of life in the game.

Prior to the official release date of the Warhammer Underworlds: Harrowdeep card game this weekend, Games Workshop has released its roadmap for the game going forward, until the middle of the way 2022.

After this week, players can expect a brand new Warband to join the fray. And we can expect this to be an exciting one giving the first Warband release to add diversity to the core box. With a cheeky little hint at what we can be expecting above - it looks like we are heading into some pirate-themed chaos in the direction of the water?

With a little teasing to this next Underworlds release, Games Workshop has released a preview into the Mortal realms and promised things to be "a little weird".

Any ideas what could form as part of this Warband? As I am seeing a parrot joining the team, and don't think either the Stromcast Eternals or the Kruleboyz have a cracker to hand over!

Along with the release of a brand new Warband in Q1, GW is set to release a new Rivals Deck for players to bolster and equip their hands with a new set and arrangement of cards.

I found it interesting that Warhammer seems to have changed things up in terms of how they are used to releasing Warhammer Underworlds. Adding and providing players two core sets of release each year, with a bulk of cards, new board designs and of course two warbands worth of beautiful miniatures.

Also in the first half of the year, we are seeing another Warband entering the fray, bringing a lightning theme to the tabletop.

Warhammer Underworlds Preview // Games Workshop

It seems that a lot of players were excited for Warhammer Underworlds, as a means to access a Games Workshop title without spending an arm and a leg. But since the pre-order going live last weekend, players seem to be more concerned at the entry point of the title, listing at £65 on the Games Workshop website.

But do not fret! The entry point does seem to be a little more expensive, especially when you compare the pricing to the Direcasm release, however, players will get their hands on 50 more cards than there would have been in Direchasm, meaning the addition of one card pack has been added to the release.

It is interesting to see two new core sets coming out in a year. I wonder if this would mean two new seasons coming a year, or used as a way to expand the universe further. It seems interesting that Games Workshop is only releasing particular Warbands within the core sets. Meaning players will need to spend a bit more buck to get hold of their chosen Warband if contained within a core box release.

A lightning and pirate-themed Warbands? Whoever could they be?
