Games Workshop has made a hell of showing at GenCon 2021, with two new major products revealed earlier today. Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team and Warhammer Underworlds both received updates in the form of an expansion, and a brand new season starter kit respectively.
New Warhammer: Underworlds & Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team Content
If you're not already familiar, Warhammer: Underworld & Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team are two side games set in the Warhammer universe. Underworlds is a hybrid between a card game and a miniatures skirmish game where different teams battle it out in an arena to win the most points. Kill Team is a more traditional skirmish title, that uses the same models as 40K but takes much less time and requires much smaller teams of miniatures.
The new Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team content is an expansion that adds a new setting to the latest edition of the game, as well as another option for a starter set, this time featuring the T'au Hunter Cadre and Human Ecclesiarchy as the combatants. These teams have both been designed from the ground up with Kill Team in mind, so it's a good day to be a fan of either faction.
Similarly, the new content for Warhammer: Underworlds brings a new starter set for the game's latest season, this time featuring a band of Orruks vs the Stormcast Eternals. According to the information page for the new release, this will also be the biggest core set for Underworlds of all time. Now might be the perfect time to think about getting into the game, if you haven't already.
More to Come at GenCon 2021
Today hasn't been too shabby for fans of Games Workshop and the Warhammer universe, but the fun is far from over. In a recent community post, the company promised that we would be seeing some pretty sizable announcements for a number of games. This includes updates for both original Warhammer: 40,00 and Warhammer: Age of Sigmar, not to mention more side games like Necromunda and Blood Bowl.
Who knows. If we're lucky we might even get a sneak peek of the promised return of Warhammer Fantasy that was teased back in 2019, Warhammer: The Old World. Then again, you probably shouldn't hold your breath on that one.
