Games Workshop’s Global Campaign for the new Warhammer 40,000 has been launched across the world and Warhammmer World is taking part to decide the fate of the Konor system.
To take part you will be able to record the results of your games as normal but in addition we will be kick starting our campaign with two free Campaign Days – one a Doubles and the other a Singles.
Below are the details of the Doubles Campaign Day – The Battle for Astar Minor.
The Story so Far..
The forces of Chaos have launched a vicious assault on the Hive City of Astar Minor, leaving thousands dead and many more injured. The Imperium has been quick to respond and large quantities of troops have been sent to reinforce the city.
The stage is set for a bitter siege as the onslaught of Chaos Space Marines and their deranged allies attempt to capture the city for their own nefarious ends. Can the Imperium cast the force of darkness back into the Abyss, or will the Dark Gods’ champions emerge triumphant?
Only you can decide, so grab your army and dice and make your way to Warhammer World this summer!
