Ancient Space Elf Enemies Clash In 40K’s Blood Of The Phoenix

October 7, 2019 by brennon

Games Workshop has been showing off the contents of the new Blood Of The Phoenix set which is going to be coming up for pre-order this weekend. This marks the start of a new selection of releases for Warhammer 40,000 charting the course of a Psychic Awakening!

Blood Of The Phoenix Front - Games Workshop

The new set will see the Drukhari clashing with the Aeldari and doesn't include a single Space Marine! The focus here is on telling the story that is unfolding between these warring factions that, whilst are essentially the same, have taken very different paths.

Blood Of The Phoenix Back - Games Workshop

Inside the set, you're going to get yourself a set of Howling Banshees, Jain Zar, a Viper and also a Falcon Grav Tank. This is then pitted against the new Incubi, Drazhar, Scourges, Hellions and also a Venom for good measure. You do get quite a lot of cool stuff, especially if you pick up the Drukhari, although the Aeldari no doubt have the more hard-hitting force with that Falcon on their side.

Of course, you have to try and get Jain Zar and Drazhar to have a clash on the battlefield whilst the rest of your force clashes in the background as is only fitting.

Jain Zar - Games Workshop

New rules have been included within the set for using the new Phoenix Lord Jain Zar and her deadly foe Drazhar. You'll also find datasheets for all of the other models in the set so you can get playing games right away.

Drazhar - Games Workshop

Mix that with a forty-page campaign book and you're going to have a nice mix of different missions to play through as the ancient grudge is rekindled on the battlefield. Both forces are looking to try and stamp their authority on the galaxy and prove that their way of life is superior.

Howling Banshees - Games Workshop

Beyond this, we're also seeing things unfolding on a monumental scale with the addition of a new book which begins the Psychic Awakening proper...

Incubi - Games Workshop

The book, Phoenix Rising, will chart the start of a cataclysmic event which is set to change the Aeldari race and it's fate. You're going to find the forces of the Aeldari, Drukhari and Ynnari joining forces to try and stop the ultimate doom befalling everyone of their kin.

Phoenix Rising

A full set of Ynnari rules is included within the book, taken from the pages of White Dwarf, and you'll also find additional rules for the main players in this massive narrative event. You can also get your hands on a set of rules for making your own Craftworlds, Cults and more!

This is similar to the way they created rules for making your own Successor Chapters in the new Space Marine Codex.

Make sure that you pick up this new boxed set and book if you want to find out what happens to the Aeldari!
