So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

I hope they add some rules in White Dwarf for taking Deathwatch, I love squad level games but can't say I'm a fan of the models for space marine scouts. Fingers crossed these might be some new models, the current ones need a good update

Hey, great! A real skirmish 40K game could be a blast. Hope it gets some real support, like Bloodbowl is getting, and isn't just a pump-and-dump release like some of the other games have been.

If there's new scouts & orcs in that box I'm sold. However this is about the same time they announced Lost Patrol from last year, so most likely just a reboxing of older minis.

New Scouts would be really sweet! Especially because BA Scouts are actually pretty viable in regular games. :D

I'm gonna guess this is just old models and will probably just be a one off much like that scouts vs genestealers game a while ago (I forget the name)

Pretty cool.  Might be a portion repack of Lost Patrol but new Orks (new-ish) are appreciated.  This all but confirms that GW wasn't done with Armageddon, though whether this is a new conflict or revisiting the classic 3rd war remains to be seen.

 

Another interesting point is in the comments a poster asked why not IG for this release, given Steel Legion have been one of the primary players on Armageddon throughout the campaigns.  The official post from GW is "So quick to jump to conclusions . . ."

 

Steel Legion plastics confirmed for 8th!  :P  (*SARCASM ALERT ENGAGED*)

Losing 'hope' after 10k years just because of a big warp storm? Doesn't sound like my Blood Angels.

Never had hope to begin with; they had duty, and that was enough.

Roided-up teenagers fight fungus monsters in a post-apocalyptic urban nightmare wasteland.  

Yeah, I'd watch that.  If it gets us new Necromunda-style terrain I'm all over it.  If buying it encourages them to re-release Necromunda I'll buy five.

From what people on the floor at GAMA and the reps on the 40K FB page are saying, this basically is the Necromunda re-release, just for all the existing 40K armies versus dedicated ranges of gangers.

More likely.  Wonder how the "skirmish" rules in Shadow War will stack up with Kill Team . . . huh.png

Via War of Sigmar

"A new boxed game is incoming, 

Shadow War: Armageddon, it's NECROMUNDA with 40K MODELS !! 
yeaaaaaa 
Big plastic box full of multi leveled terrain ! a la necromunda yay !! 
It's necromunda gameplay and rules are close. 
Special ops type warfare. 
Everything is in the box + free download. 
Space marines and Orcs in the starter. 
Release date - very soon!
 
all coming from an interview with the dice tower : "
 
Apparently loads of terrain in the box.

40K FB has said this not a rehash of Kill Team.

It looks like the idea is "here's a couple of cheap things to throw in so a new gamer has something to futz around with" with the larger intent being "Bring your whatevers you want".

Folk've been kludging 40k armies into Necromunda since it's inception, so well spotted Gee-Dub. An obviously marketable thing. I'll probably grab a copy for the concept alone even if I doubt I'll ever get to actually play it.

More interesting.  I guess I got overexcited on new Ork models, eh?  Still, an interesting push for a "skirmish level" product to compete with the other major companies that market at this level.  Sincerely hoping that's all plastic terrain, because if there's any cardboard in there I'm calling foul.  dry.png

Word is all plastic, loads of.

 

And Andy Smilie (?) has apparently said at GAMA this is Necromunda 2.0.
