Each card is based on a character from Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000, and includes stats which reflect how that miniature plays in the tabletop game.
The more powerful a card, the more points it costs to include in your deck.
As you upgrade cards you increase their Wounds, and their ranged, melee and psychic attack stats.
Upgrade them enough and you unlock the card’s ‘trait’, adding more depth to the combat with special powers, like Distract, Furious Charge and Fear.
Build decks from every Warhammer 40,000 army, grouped into eight factions:
Superhuman defenders of the Imperium, Space Marines are tough, powerful cards with a balance of all attack types, and include warriors from all the major Chapters!
This faction includes the subtle Craftworlders, the murderous Drukhari, the enigmatic Harlequins and the resurgent Ynnari, making Aeldari decks enormously varied.
Fight for the glory of the Greater Good with mighty battlesuits supported by warriors and hordes of drones. T’au Warlords specialise in a final, attack to sweep aside weakened opponents.
Including Orks from every clan, their decks are brutal but cunning (or is that cunning but brutal?) and sweep opponents aside with overwhelming damage and a mass of Boyz.
Including Hive Fleets and Genestealer Cults, Tyranid decks are hugely adaptable, and can be built to dominate each attack type. Their Warlords grow more dangerous as the battle continues.
With Chaos Space Marines fighting alongside Chaos Daemons, these decks are hard hitting. Chaos players understand when to deploy their Warlord and who to sacrifice to secure victory.
With relentless warriors backed up by powerful war machines and the mighty C’Tan, Necrons are the toughest faction and achieve victory by out-surviving their opponents.
Servants of the Emperor
The most varied faction, Servants of the Emperor include Astra Militarum, Assassins, Adeptus Mechanicus, Adeptus Custodes, Inquisitors, Adepta Sororitas, Rogue Traders and more.
