Start Your Warhammer 40,000 Army @ Store.OnTableTop

When you start playing as a Crusade force in Warhammer 40,000, you'll begin with a set of greenhorns and eventually work your way towards a band of veterans who have plenty of battlefield experience. Characters, troops and vehicles will be able to level up between games, unlocking access to new weapons and wargear but they could also find themselves being mortally wounded due to the fierce fighting on the frontlines.

This means as well as unlocking additional options for your army you might also find yourself with a character who been battered and bruised. They'll still be a good commander on the battlefield but they'll carry the scars of your previous encounters, a nice way to forge a narrative link with your friends and their armies.

How To Start Your Warhammer 40K Crusade Force

When you get started you'll make a list of units, an Order Of Battle, based around one of the different factions in Warhammer 40,000; Imperium, Chaos, Aeldari, Tyranids, Orks, Necrons, T’au Empire totally Fifty Power. Since the whole idea is that you're creating a cool narrative-focused force, they are making things simpler with the aid of the Power system rather than specific points.

From there you'll then decide how you want to build your army and subsequent battles (against other Crusade armies or normal points-based armies) will allow you to unlock more options for your force and tailor the way you want to go with your army.

Each unit you have in your army will come with a Crusade Card for you to track the way it has changed between games. Plus, this will allow you to track all the Battle Scars and such a unit has accrued over their time in the field.

Start Collecting Sets seem like a good place to begin for this game so maybe consider picking one up and preparing for the new edition?
