Announced on Thursday, the first day of 2021’s Gen Con tabletop games convention, Warhammer Underworlds: Harrowdeep will be the game’s fifth season – following Shadespire, Nightvault, Beastgrave, and Direchasm. GW has whipped up a dramatic launch trailer for the new season, showing off its design, colour schemes, and, of course, the new core set board, cards, and miniatures – give it a watch below.
This fifth season is set “deep beneath the seas in Ulgu”, in a “forgotten dungeon”, and its core set pits the Stormcast Eternals of Xandire’s Truthseekers against a Kruleboyz Orruks warband, Da Kunnin’ Krew. In the box, you also get the customary stacks of new cards – decks for the two warbands, universal cards, and Grand Alliance-specific cards – as well as the introduction of a new ‘Rivals’ game mode aimed at newcomers to the game, which uses pre-built and pre-balanced decks.
As per usual for Warhammer: Underworlds content, all the models come with Age of Sigmar rules, too, so you can field them as part of ordinary Age of Sigmar armies.
Warhammer Underworlds: Harrowdeep is the first of several new model reveals planned for this year’s Gen Con, and accounts for one of the three silhouetted figures teased in a recent Warhammer Community hype article; the blue figure on the left is certainly the lantern-bearing Stormcast Eternal from Xandire’s Truthseekers.
The Warhammer Underworlds: Harrowdeep reveal was closely followed by GW revealing a brand new, repackaged Kill Team starter set – we’ll have more for you on that very soon.
