Fantasy Flight Games announced The Howl of Blackmane, the first war pack in the Warlord Cycle for their new living card game, Warhammer 40,000: Conquest due out later this year. Conquest is designed by Brad Andres, Nate French, and Eric M. Lang who also all worked on Call of Cthulhu together.
In Warhammer 40,000: Conquest, monthly expansions to this Warhammer themed LCG are known as War Packs. Like Android: Netrunner or Star Wars: The Card Game, each pack will contain sixty cards offering enhancements to game play and many deck building options.
The Howl of Blackmane brings your warlords to the forefront of your battles in the Traxis sector. New warlords are introduced in every War Pack, leading bloodthirsty armies, and bringing new strategies for achieving victory. You’ll find more than new warlords, however. Other cards introduced in The Howl of Blackmane and throughout the cycle put the focus directly on your warlord, whether by granting benefits to your other forces, orchestrating army movements, or exhausting to trigger powerful tactics.
FFG introduces new units to assist the Wolf Lord, Ragnar Blackmane in this pack. Blackmane is designed to engage in battle as much as possible and send his Space Marine engineered hunters to track down their opponents.
The base game will be available third quarter of this year and Howl of Blackmane will be available fourth quarter.
