When the partnership between Wizkids and Games Workshop was announced, one of the things mentioned was the creation of a new dice game set in the Warhammer 40K universe. People, me included, speculated that it would be a dice masters game given it’s success and ease of re-theming. Well now we have confirmation, Warhammer 40K Dice Masters is coming in July of next year. This will come in the form of a new starter set based around the battle for Ultramar campaign in the 40K universe, easily enough called Warhammer 40K Dice Masters: Battle for Ultramar Campaign Box. Included in the set will be the Ultramarine faction and the Deathguard faction along with all the basic action cards and dice you will need to field a two player game. Also being released at the same time will be two team packs, one called Orcs WAARGH! which brings in the uncontrollable Orcs, and the other called Space Wolves, Sons of Russ that brings in the Space Wolves Space Marine fighting force. Each team pack comes with cards for that faction and all the dice for those cards, but they will have to be combined with the base game in order to play the game as they don’t have any basic dice or action cards. One final thing to note, they did mention that these are compatible with all the other Dice Masters sets, meaning you can live the crossover dream and have Superman lead a team of space marines and ninja turtles into battle together!
You can find out more about the Dice Masters game on Wizkids’ website, through the many Youtube reviews of different sets from the Dice Tower, or just patiently wait 7 months for their release.
