Warhammer 40K Chapter Approved, Tabletops & Objectives On The Way

July 7, 2020 by brennon

Games Workshop has been talking about more of the options coming out to support the release of Warhammer 40,000 9th Edition in a few weeks. The big first thing that you'll need is a gamer is the new set of Chapter Approved books.

The most important of these two books is the Munitorum Field Manual which has points values for all of the armies currently available in Warhammer 40,000. If you're planning to get playing sooner rather than later then this is a good resource. You've also got the Grand Tournament 2020 Mission Pack which is helpful for those wanting to dive in and play in a more competitive sense.

Warhammer 40K Tabletops & Objectives

Another of the new options that is available for those diving into Warhammer 40,000 is this Battlezone: Manufactorum Battlefield set.

This set is sized for you to play quick Combat Patrol and Incursion games but if you pick up two of these sets you'll end up with a play area big enough for full Strike Force games. Once you drop a bit of terrain on top of this you'll have some suitably grimdark tabletops.

You will also be able to pick up a new set of Battlefield Objectives which you can fight over. These are both Imperial and Necron related so they would be good for use alongside the new Space Marine and Necron armies from Indomitus.

I do particularly like the look of the Necron which has been suspended in an energy matrix. Every time that someone captures something ancient and tries to study it, it always goes well right? You could set up some fun battles with that in mind, perhaps aboard an Imperial ship rather than on a traditional battlefield.

Also previewed as part of a recent preview was the introduction of new paints, game aids, a journal for mapping your games out and Open War Cards which will help randomise your missions on the tabletop.

Are you tempted to dive in and check out what's new when Warhammer 40,000 9th Edition hits?
