Games Workshop have not forgotten about the other Warhammers across their little multiverse, and to prove that, they are hosting a “Not Warhammer 40,000” preview event that will go down on July 1st – talk about a July Morning event.
With all the Warhammer 40,000 10th Edition news and special events recently, this comes as a much-needed breath of fresh air to the miniature wargaming world, and the event promises to feature all the other less-talked-about Warhammers, like Warhammer Age of Sigmar, Warhammer: The Horus Heresy, Warhammer Warcry, Warhammer Underworlds, and Warhammer: The Old World.
The above-mentioned titles will receive all the focus on the event, and Games Workshop will likely look to elaborate on some of the announced roadmaps earlier this year. The reveal of the new Age of Sigmar cities certainly brought eyes to the franchise, which continues to impress with its high-quality product line and innovative gameplay – so much so that even the mighty Warhammer 40,000 borrowed some rules from the Age of Sigmar in the 10th Edition.
An Event to Celebrate Nostalgia and High-Warhammer Fantasy
Even the Horus Heresy line is expected to receive some love, as players have been hyping the possible reveal of a new Imperial Knight line, which fires were stoked with the reveal of the Knight Lancer earlier this year. Indeed, the model was very impressive and made an instant impact among Horus Heresy fans and players alike.
Warhammer Warcry has a lot of potentials to be a hidden gem in the Warhammer world, surprising fans with awesome models and combinations previously unheard of. For instance, did you know that there are now apparently human worshipers of Chaos Dwarf deity – Hashut, The Father of Darkness? Indeed, the Horns of Hashut made quite the buzz upon their reveal. How can Games Workshop do something so controversial, yet so brave… This has naturally caused fans to speculate what could come next, and this “Not Warhammer 40,000” event may have the answers we seek.
The event will be streamed live on the Warhammer Twitch channel so that it can attract as many eyes as possible. There will be glorious models to be displayed, roadmaps to be covered, and not to mention all the possibilities for announcements and surprises. Games Workshop certainly has plans for all of its universes and it’s always good to see a publisher putting love and attention into its more niche products.
