Warhammer 40,000 – 40k 7th edition – Maelstrom of War Missions
Jervis returns with part 2 of the Warhammer 40,000 – 7th edition rulebook previews – Maelstrom of War missions. You can view the video here.
The new edition of Warhammer 40,000 – 7th edition, introduces 6 new missions under a new type – Maelstrom of War. These are in addition to the previous 6 missions.
Maelstrom of War missions use “tactical objectives”. Each player picks one or more of these at the start of the game. If you achieve these objectives, you score the victory points for it immediately and get a new tactical objective to replace it – not unlike various board games!
This is an exciting addition to 40k, as it is something healthy in a LOT of other games. The option to mix up your objectives and even acquire new ones throughout the game offers the potential for a evolving game and perhaps even push into a storyline.
There’s the usual promise of more missions – something GW have been doing since time began.
