Games Workshop has been busy revealing all kinds of Warhammer and Middle Earth content at NOVA Open 2018! Games Workshop has officially endorsed NOVA as a Warhammer Community savvy event! If you are a Warhammer fan you are sure to have some fun at NOVA!
“NOVA is an example of events at their very best, offering gaming, seminars and great company to all who attend. In our view, it’s a perfect representation of Warhammer at its finest, and we’ll be offering them our full support going forward.”
For Warhammer 40,000 the Whaaag! has their day-and their Codex! Speed Freaks is a racing game taking place in the deserts of Vigilus. Collect high-Orktane buggies and bikes such as the Shokkjump Dragsta and the Kustom Boosta-blasta. Complete with a new Warboss on a Deffkilla Wartrike you’ll soon collect the entire force of ork-tastic vehicles. And the Codex, well let’s hear that in their own words:
“The upcoming Codex: Orks is, quite frankly, the best Orks book ever. If you’re a veteran warboss, this is the book you’ve been waiting for, while if you’ve always been tempted to start a Waaagh! of your own but never quite got round to it, this is your chance.”
Sisters Of Battle is in the works with new holy warriors from all over the galaxy. Games Workshop wants your feedback to make it the best version of Adepta Sororitas possible. Chapter Approved 2018 will include a Beta Codex for you to try.
“You’ll have access to a huge pool of units, Stratagems, Relics and Warlord Traits to represent the orders of the Adepta Sororitas in your games – and your feedback on how you find them will help us make the final codex as awesome as it can possibly be.”
In the Imperial Knights category Sir Hekhtar from the codex is to be released in miniature form in September 2018. Along with his release is the re-release of the (very much asked for) Knight Household Transfers for the knights houses including House Griffith!
Command Roster, a free tool that will help you build matched play kill teams, is going to make creating your many kill teams a breeze. Keep your eyes and computers open for that!
The Webcomic side of Warhammer 40,000 is proud to announce the return of Turn Signals on a Land Raider:

There is also a new webcomic on the horizon featuring the art of Sarah Kaiser: Vahne Glorious.
“Vhane Glorious will follow the quest of Buck Vhane – Rogue Trader Elucia Vhane’s dashing, handsome and completely useless brother – as he attempts to avoid doing any hard work in a universe wracked by war.”
Nightvault is the second season of Warhammer Underworlds.
“The Shyish Necroquake rocks the Mortal Realms, and not even the hidden city of Shadespire is safe. As magical energies wrack the Mirrored City, more travelers are drawn there in search of glory – and so, Nagash has opened the Nightvault, an arcane prison used by the Katophranes of old to perform horrific experiments…”
With eight new warbands, hundreds of cards and new mechanics to the game, it is also fully compatible with the rest of your Shadespire content.
