Incoming! Battle Missions
Games Workshop today announced the latest supplement for Warhammer 40,000: Battle Missions. Long hinted by the design team at various open days and events, we finally get explore a whole range of official missions beyond those in the rulebook.
From their newsletter:
Coming in March, Battle Missions is a brand-new supplement for Warhammer 40,000 that expands on the basic missions found in the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook. Each of the thirty-something scenarios detailed in Battle Missions has been designed to allow you to fight the sort of battles normally the subject of Black Library novels. From daring raids and assassinations, to breakthroughs and last stands, Battle Missions will allow your army to play in a way that reflects its background. No matter what Warhammer 40,000 army you collect this exciting new supplement will open up a whole new gaming experience.
Of course it just wouldn’t be the same if there weren’t some great new miniatures to fight through these missions with. Fortunately, there will be new sets for Space Marines, Orks and the Imperial Guard released alongside Battle Missions in March.
New sets are always good news, though those not being visited will likely be a little disgruntled! So far the best guess is the Basilisk pictured as it is different to the current model. A multi-option Artillery set? Hell yes!
