The first expansion for Games Workshop’s skirmish-scale fantasy miniatures game Warcry will be the Monsters & Mercenaries book.

Monsters & Mercenaries includes new rules for Warcry that allow players to add specialist mercenary characters to their warbands, including powerful beings like Darkoath Warqueens and Knight Heraldors.  It also features rules for large monsters, with special “challenge battle” scenarios in which players can attempt to overcome monstrous beasts and force them into service.

Details about the new book, including released dates and MSRP, have not been announced.

Warcry was launched this summer (see “Games Workshop Teases Upcoming Releases at GAMA Trade Show”).
