The product was unveiled at the Munchkin Tavern last night, where popular series artist John Kovalic was meeting fans for a signing. Munchkin Line Editor Andrew Hackard was also on hand to sit down with ICv2 to share extra information about the product.
In Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 players choose an army (Ultramarine, Necron, Aeldari, Ork, Death Guard, or Tyranid) and wade in to the dark apocalyptic future where they will meet Sloppity Bilepiper, a Horror of Tzeentch, and Mortarion. There are Chaos Monsters as well, and they stack – just like the undead. Kovalic shared memories of frequenting the game store in Hammersmith, London in the late 1970s that would become the first Games Workshop store. Kovolic has amassed a respectable collection over the years, and freely admitted his favorite army is the Orks.
The Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 Deluxe release will include 168 cards, a rulesheet, custom die, and a mounted level tracker. MSRP is $29.95. It will be followed by two 112-card expansions ($19.95) later in the year.
