Warhammer Underworlds is a hybrid arena combat game, where players battle it out in the Mortal Realms with warbands of models, using decks they’ve built to swing the balance in their favour. Each battle sees fighters grow in power and skill, combining elements from Warhammer, RPGs and card games into one awesome experience – the ultimate competitive miniatures game.
Warhammer Underworlds is now on it’s third core box. With each core box more warbands are released that are playable in every edition. It’s a nice quick game that gives you a few models to paint if you find a full army a little daunting. With regular tournaments it can be competitive or a game you just play with friends.
In Warhammer Underworlds, victory is secured by scoring the most glory points! How you gain these is up to you and there are several strategic options. Maybe you’ll slay your enemies in brutal combat. Or perhaps you’ll build a deck that rewards you for careful positioning and holding objectives – the choice is yours.
A warband is a collection of fighters, drawn to battle in the underworlds of the Mortal Realms through fate, circumstance or a hunt for glory. They fight for their own goals, whether that is to escape the city, slay their hated rivals, or find treasure of incalculable worth. Each warband has its distinct character and always consists of the same fighters, identified by their fighter cards and represented by their miniatures.
As well as a warband, each player needs two decks of cards to play a game of Warhammer Underworlds – an objective deck which consists of 12 unique cards, and a power deck which consists of at least 20 unique cards. You can choose which cards go into each deck – this is an important and strategic part of the game.
