|Chaos in the Old World | Published 26 May 2011||Rating||17 votes|
Far below the raging battlefields of the Old World lies a labyrinth of tunnels, home to a savage breed of creatures determined to bring ruin to the world above. These vermin are considered myth by the unwitting citizens of the Empire, but those who have seen the horrors of the Old World will quickly rebuke such claims. The Skaven are all too real, and they are coming...
The Horned Rat Expansion for Chaos in the Old World is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore! While the four Ruinous Powers continue to compete against each other to become the principle Ruiner of the Old World, the legions of the verminous Skaven have found the opportune time to spread the corruption of their sinister god.
A new player, an old agenda
By adding a fifth player to the game, introducing terrible new events, and including all new upgrade and Power cards for the four Ruinous Powers, The Horned Rat Expansion gives players all new ways of toppling the Old World.
The Horned Rat Expansion includes a new playable power, the Horned Rat, designed to accommodate a fifth player in your games of Chaos in the Old World. Armed with a legion of Skaven followers, the Horned Rat player uses numbers and subterfuge to his advantage, scoring points by spreading the Skaven’s teeming masses across the Old World.
Gifts From the Accursed Moon
But the Skaven are not the only ones to receive favours from their god. The Horned Rat Expansion also provides each Ruinous Power from Chaos in the Old World with all new decks of Chaos cards and upgrade cards, collectively referred to as the Morrslieb set. These new cards will change the way players interact with each other, creating a completely new game environment.
Ready for an even greater challenge?
The Horned Rat Expansion also adds several new expert-level Old World cards, used to create an even more challenging play environment. While these cards can simply be shuffled into your existing deck of Old World cards, experienced players can also choose to play the Realm of Chaos Variant, using only these cards when constructing the Old World deck.

Yay, Miniaturemarket has shipped my version yesterday. Now for the tedious wait till it arrives in Germany... oh, my...
Any word on when it'll be showing up in the UK? Amazon UK has no sign of it yet.
Aarrrg, Maelstrom is only getting it in only the 25 of June! And then a two week shipment period! This is tortuuuuuure D:
Oh boy oh boy oh boy!
I checked my local retailers, none of them have a clue when they are getting it in.
Sadly, my local retailer doesn't have it in yet...
For this price, this must buy, is a steal.
Totally recommend this as expansion of the year.
If you don't own the core game, I highly recommend it.
