Battle Missions expansion in March 2010

Postby Spack » Sat Dec 05, 2009 9:52 am

Another new expansion for 40k is due in March:

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.

The reason for the Blood Angel codex being pushed back to May perhaps?

Also I'm guessing either the new Russ or the Artillery kit for IG, Possibly Plastic Kans for orks, are the Legion of the Damned actually released yet?

EDIT: LotD should be out in January apparently. So what else are SM missing? About the only thing I can think of is a model for the MotF. Perhaps some kind of new honour guard models, as the only ones they have at the moment are very ultra specific?

Wow we already know more about them providing stuff they cut out of the 5th ed rulebook than we do about the tyranids codex.
Meh purchase is meh, I've got the old scenarios and the chapter approved, and the ones in the back of codexs..and the ones from those tournies (inc the low gravity/high gravity ones)..
(I have but don't use apoc, planetstrike and COD)
I won't be paying for it unless its super duper duper duper special..whens the release date for FW IA Apoc 2?
Barely even lurking..

This book can only be a good thing and i would assume that the "battlefield challenges" articles in white dwarf were a test bed for feedback.

With regards to new minis for release alongside this book, Marines - terminator captain in plastic, honour guard? Guard - could be tanks but maybe plastic storm troopers or even psyker battle squad box. As for the Orks, plastic kans is a good shout but what about flash gits, they could go to town on these guys for detail
"Crom, i've never prayed to you before, i have no tongue for it.
No-one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought and why we died.
All that matters is that two stood against many, thats whats important.
Valor pleases you lord Crom so grant me one thing, grant me revenge.
And if you do not listen....then to hell with you!"

Got to agree with KMB. It sounds like an updated compilation of the 3rd ed missions. It will have to be something really good to part with the cash
