Six new races have arrived to contest the blood-soaked battlefields of Warhammer: Diskwars !

The Hammer and Hold and Legions of Darkness expansions are now available at your local retailer and online through our webstore. Each comes chock full of heroes and units for three new races, as well reinforcements for the four Core Set races. You’ll also find new keywords, command cards, terrains, and tokens.

The Old World will quake!

Hammer and Hold

Hammer and Hold bolsters the forces of Order with fifty new disks, including heroes and units for the Wood Elves, Lizardmen, and Dwarfs.

In our previews, we’ve looked at many of these disks and the regiments they can form. We saw how the Wood Elves and Lizardmen can lend their strength to any Order army, and we looked at the ways in which the expansion’s three new races make use of the new keywords – Poison, Guard X, and Stalwart. We also reviewed the reinforcements that High Elf and Empire players will be able to call into their ranks.

Of course, the Dwarfs are the stars of Hammer and Hold , and you’ll be able to muster as many as three full regiments from the expansion’s heroes and units. Fueled by a host of ancient grudges, these tough and stalwart warriors guard their holds and press the fight to their enemies with axes, hammers, runes, and war machines. Dwarf troops stand among the game’s toughest units, and their heroes’ abilities and command cards allow them to rise to the challenges of any fight.

Legions of Darkness

Legions of Darkness introduces a terrifying array of fifty-one new heroes and units, as well as new command cards and other resources designed to bolster the game’s forces of Destruction.

Spearheading these tides of evil, the Vampire Counts harness powerful necromantic magic and march to battle with hordes of Undead . In our previews, we’ve looked at how the Vampire Counts can summon the dead back to battle with their Reanimate X keyword. We’ve also looked at how the Vampire Counts, as well as the other forces of Destruction, can use the Fear keyword to sow panic among their foes.

Though the Vampire Counts are clearly the pre-eminent race in Legions of Darkness , the expansion presents a good number of options for any Destruction player. The Dark Elves and Skaven each gain heroes and units enough to form regiments that you may add to your armies. Meanwhile, you’ll also find new units and command cards for the Core Set races . The Orcs gain the ability to launch malevolent, little Goblins into battle, and the forces of Chaos continue perverting the game’s basic rules by squelching opposing units’ counter-attacks and stripping their units of key abilities and defensive tokens.

Charge into Battle

Both Hammer and Hold and Legions of Darkness greatly expand your options within Warhammer: Diskwars . You gain new races, new terrain, new command cards, and reinforcements for the existing races. Moreover, each expansion comes with three of each non-unique small disk, two of each non-unique medium disk, and one of each large disk, so you’ll immediately be able to assemble a wide range of new regiments.

The war rages on, but the ultimate prize has yet to be claimed… Head to your local retailer today to pick up your copies of Hammer and Hold and Legions of Darkness . Then command your forces into battle!

Warhammer: Diskwars is an epic game of heroes, armies, and brutal warfare for 2 - 4 players. At the game's heart art its disks, which represent heroes and units from the Old World. These maneuver across the battlefield by flipping end over end, and if any two disks overlap at the end of the round, they must fight!
