Gen Con 2021 New Kill Team & Warhammer Underworlds Reveals From Games Workshop
Kill Team 2021
New Kill Team Starter Set and troop boxes have been revealed at Gen Con!
This is NOT the Ocatarius box, but a new Kill Team Starter. It looks to have the same miniatures (Kommandos & Death Korps of Krieg) but the terrain looks to be a disappointment; I’m just seeing scatter terrain, not ruined buildings, like the ones that are included with Octarius.
We are also (finally) getting separate boxes of the new plastic Kommandos & Veteran Guardsmen (Death Korps of Krieg). This is good, but also annoying. These starter sets don’t contain enough sprues to make every available specialist option. Luckily this will allow people to simply buy one of these boxes along with the starter set, instead of TWO starter sets to make all available specialists.
*Update – Right after I posed this blog and my video Kill Team: Chalnath was revealed!
Kill Team: Chalnath
A new set more like Octarius; Chalnath is a new expansion that will include more, brand new miniatures! Lighter-armed Adepta Sororitas Sisters of Battle, and specialized Tau Pathfinders, which is an updated to the existing T’au Pathfinder kit (new comprehensive upgrade sprue).
Looks like this is the new Warzone and not the Starter Set mentioned above. Chalnath comes with a full set of Imperial Ruins, and a rules manual that included nine new missions and the rules for the new squads that come in the box.
Warhammer Underworlds: Harrowdeep
A shadowy new season that continues the theme from Dominion and Age of Sigmar starter sets – Kruleboyz vs Stormcast Eternals.
Games Workshop is saying that Harrowdeep is the “biggest ever core set for Warhammer Underworlds.” (whatever that means), so that sounds promising. I still only own Shadespire & Nightvault, myself; I guess I should grab Beastgrave & Direchasm soon if I still want them. Let me know if I should buy them!
I wonder what unique rule changes will show up with Harrowdeep?
No pricing or pre-order information is currently available, but check back for updates on this post! What has you excited from Gen Con 2021? New Kill Team? Harrowdeep? Let me know in the comments!
