Warhammer 40,000 Wrath & Glory Cover and Pre-Order Goes Live!
  • Warhammer 40,000 Wrath & Glory Cover and Pre-Order!


    The much-anticipated Wrath & Glory Warhammer the 40,000-roleplay game, as announced in August 2017, is on preorder now, and we can also show you the core book’s cover wrap! The RPG is crafted by award winning game designer Ross Watson and published by Ulisses North America.


    The adventures in Wrath & Glory take place in the new era of Warhammer 40,000 that was introduced with the 8th Edition of Warhammer 40,000 miniatures game.

    This is a galaxy torn asunder by a great warp storm that altered reality itself forever bringing the great rift.

    Pre-Order Campaign - What You Get
    The Wrath & Glory preorder campaign is not a Kickstarter or crowd funding. This campaign gives fans the opportunity to purchase bundles of the new products at significant savings. They are the first to get the new game, expansions, and supplemental items, months before they become available in stores for the general public. Along with the preorder, Ulisses North America is adding bonus material for fans plus other spiffs on the Pre-Order Campaign.

    What's New?
    Wrath & Glory is first and foremost a role-playing game. What’s new and different about the Wrath & Glory RPG from other RPGs? Lots! Here are some examples.

    Simple yet Satisfying
    Wrath & Glory game mechanics are easy to grasp but detailed enough to make characters clearly distinct for other characters.
    Baked right into the game are rules and benefits for doing things that your character is particularly good at that gives great opportunities for role-playing. For example a commissar may have the objective of threatening someone with execution for being a coward while a priest must bring up a famous martyr and the effect of his death on the players.
    Wrath & Glory is built to be encompassing to different styles of play, different type of characters (both archetypes and races). Unlike the previous version of Warhammer 40,000 there will be no new systems or rules to learn as new campaigns and settings come out. While the system is simple and effective enough for a novice to learn, it offers the expert an opportunity to face varying degrees of challenge and adventure.

    Character Spotlight
    Warhammer 40,000 has spawned countless novels, novel series, board games, video games, hundreds of miniatures, incredible artwork. In total more than any other game setting published. Players can create their own stories in this grim and dark far future. The character design and play style of the Wrath & Glory RPG makes every character player a key to the success of any scenario.

      A lower price point may be more exciting, like just the core rulebook for pre-order? Just saying.

      Not being a 40k follower, I'm getting this one and the C7 warhammer rpg confused when I see anything warhammer rpg threads. Same universe, different eras, different companies and different rules. Same time frame to be coming out or pre-order. Anyone picking up both or leaning toward one or the other for those who play warhammer? I'm still picking up the C7 version, just curious is the serious fan grabbing both.

      Hiya!

      No. Just...no.

      RANT BELOW!

      Price isn't the issue. They lost me at the first sentence on the 'back' of the book in the top image: "This accursed Age needs heroes more than ever before". It SHOULD have read something like "This glorious Age needs untold billions of souls bred to sacrifice themselves against the never ending tide of Chaos". That should have followed up with the idea of how ultimately pointless your PC's life is going to be in the grand scheme of things, and that sacrificing your meager soul in service to the Emperor is why you were born. The world should have been described as dark and uncaring, where a hundreds of millions of people live and work in subjected servitude to provide everything the military of the Emperor needs to keep humanity safe. There should have been mention to the hundreds of people who's lives are sacrificed daily to the Emperor's Machine that keeps the savior of humanity from dying.

      But no. We get "You can play a hero and go into icky-bad places to fight mean aliens! When you beat them up, you can return home to cheering crowds and the appreciation of millions! You're great, wonderful and special! You're awesome! Go go team Space Hero!". The art doesn't help; it's clean. I couldn't make out any gore, or see one skull or corpse decorating a wall or gate. The cloths on the woman Commissar look like she just picked them up from the laundromat. There are THREE, count 'em, THREE whole splats of blood (and the one on the left might not even be blood).

      "Grim Darkness"? o_O If by "grim" they mean "sanitized" and by "darkness" they mean "no LED lights", then maybe.

      No. A hard, cold NO effing way!

      ^_^

      There aren't enough skulls! ;-)

      I think the FFG range was/is pretty perfect for my tastes at this moment. I am curious what the reviews will say after release...

      (1) The Cubicle 7 game is the classic Warhammer Fantasy 4th Edition using a ruleset very similar to the very first ever Warhammer Fantasy Role Play edition, so basically a percentile D100.

      (2) Sadly, Ulisses North America is publishing Warhammer 40,000 (call it the very far future of Warhammer) and uses a D6 dice pool, similar to the miniatures wargame.

      So, I get the different design choices for the Warhammer Fantasy vs Warhammer 40,000, but the price of WH40K pre-order is so high due to the special D6 and other cards being bundled, which if you ask me, are not strictly necessary. :-(

      So, $100 gets you a rulebook ($50-60 retail most likely), some decks of reference cards ($20 each probably) and some custom dice ($20 most likely). I don't see the "huge savings" there, unless you count the special edition covers. While those looks cool, I'm not sure they are enticing enough to gamble. There really, really should be a $50ish price bundle, with just the basics, for people to gamble on.

      Also, why aren't the modules avaiable outside of the "everything" pack. Personally, I would like the Rules, some modules, maybe the dice, and GM screen as a packet. Reference cards and fancy pregens don't sell me. I'm sure there are others who will feel the same way.

      There really should be more options and ranges.

      Yes, I know "if I don't like it don't buy it". I would like to buy, but I would like to have better options for the pre-order. As it is, I will probably wait until retail. I would say and get a discount there, but MAP sucks for consumers.

      [small rant]

      i would have really liked to have jumped in with the "everything" box, but I simply cannot justify the cost. Shipping to Canada is $50.00US. this one product would cost me nearly $450.00CAD. that's crazy money for a role playing game!. $290.00 is more expensive than the Torg base game Cargo box from Kickstarter, and that came with way more perks, material and bonus content. the announced "bonus" material for 40k IMO is weak - a sample pdf of a race that's going to be in another splat book, a discount for a t-shirt and the free RPG Day adventure. the all in option was originally announced at $275, but jumped to $290. As much as I want to be a completionist, if I'm going to support both Torg and 40k, recent trends indicate I'd have to be spending more than $500/year. that's simply too rich. so, core books it is without any of the nice extras or just pick up the extras that seem nice if available as add-ons at a later date.

      they need to both pack more value in the "all-in" option and to figure out how to economically ship internationally.

      it kinda makes me sad because I have every single FFG 40k and WH Fantasy product, and I don't think I'l be able to do the same this time around as much as I'd want to. FFG's books were expensive, but 60 bucks is Waaay more affordable than $250.

      [/minor rant]

      I got a chance to play 40k at Origins this year. it was a blast. the system is solid, the mechanics worked! waaaay less whiff as compared to the FFG rules. its a better game. Ironically, the only deck that was being used at the table was the critical hits deck. which suggests to me that the other decks are highly optional.

      The comparison to Torg is an interesting one. I wonder if the differential lies in the cost of the licensing from Games Workshop, or if it's the difference between "taking a chance" on a Kickstarter and doing more things to hype up the game and eating the cost as if it were "advertising" vs. putting it out using a more traditional pre-order model because the setting already comes with a built-in customer base and there's less advertising needed.

      I'm in.

      Seeing this game, the art and the fact its based on the new 8th edition setting of W40k and checking out all the preview stuff they have put out on drive thru and the one shot adventure they did with BoLS has converted me to a W40k fangirl.

      I am now wanting to read the novels of this setting, and I'm more excited to dive into this universe tand I'm even considering giving the minis game a try.

      I am seeing all this as a person with fresh eyes and while the all in preorder might seem a little expensive... I'm looking at it as an experience and something brand new for me to really explore.

      Why is it sad Ulisses North America is doing Wrath & Glory? I think they did a great job on TORG.

      As recently as 3th ed 40K and 4th ed WFB, the Warhammer World was located in an N-space pocket amidst the great chaos storm. The references to this were in odd places, but were there.
