Boundless Hate Is Now Available for Warhammer 40,000: Conquest
“Now, where’z we gunna get enough red paint ta make a sumfing as ‘uge as dis Kill Kroozer go fasta?”

The battle for Sacaellum intensifies! What began as a simple conflict between the Tau Empire and the Astra Militarum has become a battle on four fronts. The space hulk Kaerux Erameas has crash-landed, spilling forth hundreds of Chaos Space Marines devoted to Khorne, even as a Dark Eldar raiding party appears and begins taking slaves from the havoc of battle. The true war on Sacaellum has only just begun: Boundless Hate is now available at your local United States retailer and online through our webstore.
Like the other packs of the Planetfall cycle for Warhammer 40,000: Conquest, Boundless Hate brings new significance to the reasons behind each faction's war by increasing the importance of the planet type symbols. As you’ll soon see, when you fight on a planet that aligns with your faction’s goals, your own units become much more dangerous. In addition, Boundless Hate introduces two new warlords with their signature squads, bringing new options to Chaos and the Dark Eldar in the fight for the Traxis sector. Prepare for a new era of war, and take a closer look at the Ork cards from this pack below!
Ride wit da Boyz
Though the Orks have not yet joined the fight for Sacaellum under the command of their new warlord, Gorzod (Deadly Salvage, 41), Boundless Hate adds some new Ork armies to your warbands. The Orks are always eager to throw themselves into a fight, and the Front Line 'Ard Boyz (Boundless Hate, 39) are no different. This unit boasts two command icons and five HP, but it only offers two ATK. Ordinarily, your opponent might choose to concentrate his attacks on more immediately dangerous targets, but the Front Line ‘Ard Boyz force your opponent to choose them as a defender whenever able. Ultimately, your enemies will have to cut through your Front Line ‘Ard Boyz if they want to get to the rest of your troops, and that may just buy you enough time to decimate the enemy position.
One of the army units that benefits most from the protection of the Front Line ‘Ard Boyz is the Ramshackle Trukk (Boundless Hate, 40). This Elite unit has two command icons and a massive ATK of seven—enough to bloody most warlords with a single hit. However, under normal circumstances, the Ramshackle Trukk has only three HP, which can mean it falls apart quickly. Fortunately, you can protect the Ramshackle Trukk with the Front Line ‘Ard Boyz or use the Ramshackle Trukk’s own ability to soak up your opponent’s attacks.
The Ramshackle Trukk has an ability that falls under the Goes Fasta! specialization, meaning that it triggers whenever your opponent has the initiative. In this case, while your opponent has the initiative, your Ramshackle Trukk gains four additional HP, making it much more resilient. Unfortunately, it might fall apart when initiative passes back to you and it loses its extra HP, but before then, the Ramshackle Trukk can certainly destroy some of your enemies’ units.
If you’re running units like the Front Line ‘Ard Boyz in your army, your opponent will need to spend numerous attacks punching through your defenses before moving onto your other units. Boundless Hate offers a way to capitalize on those extra attacks with Rok Bombardment (Boundless Hate, 41). This event allows you choose any planet where a battle is taking place. Until the end of that battle, whenever a unit attacks, it must suffer a damage! Moreover, if the battle is taking place at a red material planet, the effect only deals damage to your opponent’s units. Even if you are damaging your own units, Orks serving under the command of Nazdreg (Core Set, 3) can turn damage into an advantage.
