Warhammer Underworlds Organised Play 2019

These sets are available to stores as event support sets, and the content should be used as prize support for instore events, like tournaments or […]

Warhammer Underworlds Restrictions – Could Your Deck Be Affected?

The revelation has unfurled as of yesterday revealing the very first Warhammer Underworlds restrictions and bans for cards within the game. In a game that will soon feature a card roster nearing a thousand in number, this was only inevitable. Pegged as “the ultimate competitive miniatures game”, Warhammer Underworlds continues to sweep into hobby circles across the scene. Blending card play tactics with skirmish miniature warfare, it continues to rope in hobbyists by the boatload. You may have missed it, but we’re still enjoying it since launch. These changes are interesting and exciting indeed, but how could these bans and restrictions impact you? Might they hinder or bolster your deck or warband? Let’s do a little digging… The bans and restrictions will work in different ways. Firstly, these limitations only apply at official organised play events. You are, of course, welcome to play these cards in friendly games and more ‘structured’ events with the discretion of

Returning to Warhammer Underworlds

I return to Nightvault, or better said, the Warhammer Underworld series. I did an unboxing of the Organised Play 2018 boxed set for the first season Shadespire a couple of days ago. As these were re-packed for the several waves, I could only show you the alternate artwork cards for Steelheart's Champions and Garrek's Reavers. […]

Speculating Nightvault Warbands in Warhammer Underworlds

Now that the cavernous doors of the Nightvault have truly swung open, I find myself itching to learn of the upcoming combatants. We know what they are, as you can see in our previous article, but we don’t know how they’ll work. How will they inspire? What sort of gimmicks will they have? How much magic will they be slinging out across the hexes? All we have to go on are the images released by Games Workshop. Well, I’ll take what I can get! Let’s go over what we have and see what we can take away from these images. Find within this article a list of things that may (or may not) be possible for the upcoming Nightvault warbands. We certainly can say one thing with boundless glee, bar the Stormsire’s Cursebreakers, there appear to be no more Stormcast on the way. Maybe someone at Games Workshop has been reading our wishlist? Darkoath Warband The Darkoaths are a funny one. They’re Chaos and, despite their clear barbarism, aren’t strictly just fighting for Khorne and bloodshed

Venturing into the Nightvault of Warhammer Underworlds

Nightvault landing on my doorstep sprang the initial question of “Where am I going to keep all these cards?!”. I remember the very same thought trawling through my mind when Shadespire appeared within my clutches. When the first season of Warhammer Underworlds landed, it relentlessly became my most-played game for months to come and brought with it untold enjoyment. Nightvault follows it including new warbands, new cards and the inclusion of magic to the game. Do these tarnish the refined formula that Shadespire ushered in? Or does it bring with it a new era of card-focused skirmish that my table will quickly be overwhelmed by? The answer to these questions are not as clear-cut as you’d might hope. There’s a number of factors to consider here. Whilst it’d take a sizeable chunk of time to go into detail for each of them I’ll summarise as best I can. The first key thing to acknowledge is that it’s impossible to fully bring judgement to Nightvault until all cards are re
