T’au & Orks Clash In New Warhammer 40K’s Arks Of Omen

March 20, 2023 by brennon

Games Workshop are moving the Arks Of Omen storyline forward with the pre-orders for Farsight going live this weekend. You'll be able to dive into a new Warhammer 40,000 clash between the T'au Empire and the Orks and take a step away from the Imperium and Chaos battle for a moment.

Commander Farsight has found himself embroiled in the War Of Dakka where the Orks are looking to "outshoot" the T'au. I don't think that will go quite as they think but you never know with those pesky Orks!

Of course, you won't be able to avoid the interference of the Imperium and Chaos forever as Farsight's war will be threatened by the coming of the Unhallowed space hulk and a new Balefleet. Suddenly, the T'au and Orks will face a distinctly more dangerous threat.

The new Arks Of Omen book will come in two flavours (as you can see above) and will also come with more expansion content for Boarding Actions. Dark Depths missions mix up your games and you'll also find rules for playing games with three and four players. Use this for team games or free-for-all battles.

Last but not least, you're also going to find additional rules for T'au Empire, Asuryani, Drukhari, Harlequin and Adepta Sororitas Boarding Patrols. It will be fascinating to see where the lore goes as the Arks Of Omen reaches its conclusion.

Considering that Games Workshop said they weren't going to spread rules for a new game mode over multiple books, it sure seems like they're doing that. I would really hope that we get a collected set of rules for Boarding Actions when Arks Of Omen is done and dusted.

New Boarding Patrols

As well as the new book, you'll also be able to pick up the two new Boarding Patrols that come with the new miniatures for both Commander Farsight and Snikrot.

Boarding Patrol - Tau Empire - Warhammer 40K

Boarding Patrol - T'au Empire // Warhammer 40,000

Boarding Patrol - Orks - Warhammer 40K

Boarding Patrol - Orks // Warhammer 40,000

These will be the first places where you're able to get your hands on the new plastic miniatures for these dramatis personae in Warhammer 40,000. You'll also get enough miniatures to build up your 500-point armies for use in Boarding Actions.

There will also be additional Boarding Patrols for plenty of other factions too. Make sure to check out the Warhammer Community Article to see what else is on the way.

Fancy Dice!

Last but not least, you can also get your hands on some fancy themed dice for Commander Farsight and the Arks Of Omen.

These very nice red dice come with the Farsight Enclave marker on the side showing a six. I think these would be rather awesome to pick up, especially if you're someone who wants to shrug off the shackles of the T'au Empire and play as the renegade known as Farsight!

Will you be looking at the new goodies for Warhammer 40,000 this weekend?
