[NEWS] Battle Missions incoming!

Pasted from an email from GW:

Incoming! Battle Missions

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.

Not sure quite what's left in the Space Marine codex without a model, since the Legion of the Damned have come out, but here's hoping for some new Ork stuff - Looted Wagon, Big Gunz, Flash Gitz or Warbuggies?

We'll have to wait and see what models appear in the rumour threads on forums, but I'm definitely excited for the missions book, something that was greatly missed in the new rulebook, aside from the odd few examples at the back of the book.

So what do you think about the missions book - and any suggestions what the new sets might be?


  1. Well I think if its Black Novel related i think they will bring out some of the charaters from the various Space Marine Books such as Uriel Ventris, Veteran Sgt Rafel of the Blood Angels etc.

  2. the forums are telling us that there will be new marine, guard and ork models released. Also there will be lots of terrain (xeno based) to look forward to!!!
