GW Announce: Spearhead for 40k


Today I received Games Workshop’s newsletter with some interesting news, it seems a new expansion is on the way hot on the heels of the Battle Missions release. See copypasta below;

Gather your tanks and ready your lascannons – in June the pages of White Dwarf magazine and games-workshop.com join forces to bring you a whole new expansion for Warhammer 40,000: Spearhead.

Spearhead is a new way to play Warhammer 40,000 that enables you to unleash exciting tank battles and daring breakthrough missions on the table top, bringing the full mechanised fury of the 41st Millennium to bear in your games. June’s White Dwarf will contain the main part of the supplement, including new rules, missions and plenty of inspirational hobby advice. Alongside this, games-workshop.com will feature additional material for registered members such as details for how to assemble your Spearhead formations along with even more painting, modelling and collecting tips.

As if a whole new Expansion wasn’t exciting enough, it’s going to be accompanied by a range of new miniatures including some stunning new plastic kits – more details of these kits, and the Spearhead Expansion, will follow in May’s issue of White Dwarf and on games-workshop.com in due time.

The whole thing even comes with a spangly new picture of guess who…..

So, is this going to be a cool new way of playing 40k? or a marketing ploy to try to get people to buy over-priced tank kits?

I’ll leave that up to you!

    1. I couldn’t help but think with this expansion that it is playing into the hands of the Tyranids. Popping high armour vehicles is something a Nidzilla list has no problems with. Obviously we’ll need to see the rules to assess the balance but I think Nids have a great advantage in an all armour environment.
