Seize The Imperial Throne

Get your hands on this climactic final Battle Pack for The Capital Cycle today!


Karl Franz is the ruling Emperor. More than two hundred years have passed since Magnus the Pious reunited a divided Empire during the Great War against Chaos. In these two centuries, the Empire has thrived in stability, wealth and military might, becoming the largest and most powerful kingdom of Men in the Old World.     –Warhammer: The Empire

Control the might of the Empire with The Imperial Throne! This climactic final Battle Pack in The Capital Cycle for Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game is now available at your local retailer and online on our webstore.

The Imperial forces have traditionally excelled at harnessing their mobility to rout their foes, and The Imperial Throne introduces a number of cards that gain power through combinations. Whether you build a deck focusing on Warriors, Mages, loyalty costs, unique units, or mass attackers, The Imperial Throne adds new strength to your Imperial armies. Meanwhile, the Empire’s allies and enemies also gain strength from the cards of The Imperial Throne, with new support cards and units for the Dwarfs, High Elves, Dark Elves, Orcs, and minions of Chaos.

Fortified defenses

The Capital Cycle draws to a close with The Imperial Throne, and with its release, the cycle sees each of the game’s races gains a new Capital Center, Hero, Quest, and loyalty-based unit and tactic. Additionally, The Capital Cycle has introduced a new type of support card, the Fortification. These support cards provide you with cheap means to discourage your opponents from attacking the zones they occupy.

As the Empire seeks to fortify its defenses, it turns toward the use of Boiling Oil (The Imperial Throne, 110). For a mere one cost, Boiling Oil resides in your zone until it’s needed, and then you can sacrifice it to force your opponent to sacrifice an attacking unit. It can be useful on its own to discourage attacks from a rush deck utilizing a solitary unit, like the Blood Dragon Knight (Legends, 53), and it can pair nicely with a Counterstrike unit sent to Protect the Empire (Arcane Fire, 5). Boiling Oil can soften up your opponent’s attacking units, and your unit with Counterstrike can intercept whatever remains, limiting the damage you take to your capital.

Stand fast against the hordes of Chaos

With nearly half of its 60 cards (3 copies each of 20 different cards) dedicated to supporting the Empire and its military might, The Imperial Throne is a fantastic first Battle Pack for a new player looking to represent the armies of Men, and it provides veterans with exciting new ways to approach their collections, double their guards, and rethink how best to utilize their Imperial forces.

The Imperial Throne is now available at your local retailer and online on our webstore. Pick up your copy today!
