As with other upcoming sets, this set will be divided into one campaign box and two team packs. I have no information, at this stage, on how the card and dice distribution will work for the campaign box (since, as I recently noted, they seem to be moving away from the standard format 3 cards and 3 dice per character in campaign boxes), but I’d expect the team packs to continue using the same format of 8 characters, with 3 cards and 2 dice per character.

Since my knowledge of Warhammer is very limited, I’m not very educated on what we can expect here. The names are quite telling however.

The Fracture of Biel-Tan is apparently a battle where the Eldar played a central role; it’s quite likely that they will be one of the new factions who will make an appearance. I am not sufficiently educated on this battle to know what the other faction will be, however. I also have no clue on what specific characters will appear. Perhaps some of you Warhammer fans can clue me in?

For fans of space marines, we will certainly be seeing more of them in the Blood Angels and Dark Angels team packs (since both refer to specific Space Marine factions).

As a side note, I’m certainly glad to see that Wizkids is doing something more with the Warhammer IP; it is a universe with a deep lore and tons of factions to work with. I’ll certainly be looking forward to seeing what they do with this. And honestly, I’m just excited to see that they have more sets in the pipeline after X-men Forever.

I’ll be sure to keep this article updated with any information I can find out. Stay tuned!

  1. Basically Biel-Tan is a craftworld – massive spaceship of another Warhammer race – Eldari and in the book the conflict was between Eldari and demons (!) of Slaneesh and Khorne – so look forward a bloody demon – religious high elf conflict in the 41st millenium 🙂

    1. Only one thing I see – chapters are not Imperium of Man affiliated anymore, what kills the chance to have them on Themed team 😭 Still, looking forward a lot, they look totally awsome and hope to have them on time! 😊

        1. Also possible cards you can read from the Blood Angels are:
          Commander Dante (with new ability)
          Death Company Dreadnought (supposedly becouse of the dice and letters)
          Sanguinary Priests (chalice die)
          Sanguinary Guard (supposedly becouse of the yellow die – though combat guys)
          Tactical Marine (reiver knife die supposedly)

  2. Wow! Warhammer in Dice Masters, that is something new! I was not looking for the dice since I left our local scene becose of really bad mood in it , but I should look up for the new Warhammer stuff, as long as I am very big fan of it!

    1. The new Warhammer camapign box (with Ork and Space Wolves teampacks) are really fun to play, including new mechanics and also very nice art (as a former W40.000 player I also looks mostly forward this) so totally would reccomend You to (at least) have a look, buy and try it 🙂

      1. Thank You DanBell a lot! 🙂 As a fellow player, I’m totally looking forward Blood Angels this year, hope to find somebody to play with (last time I went for a tournament, it was a Civil War draft in our city and a guy was very angry that he was second because of that Wizkids system and he didn’t win some Squirrel promo – that was the moment I quit), maybe should try our old group and see if they still play and if things have changed 🙂
