The Merciless Planetary Battle Begins with RISK®: Warhammer 40,000® – Available Now

Warhammer 40k Risk

The Op has unleashed your entry to a global opposition, fusing the classic game of conquest with a boundless fight for control over the future. Welcome to RISK: Warhammer 40,000!

It is the 41st millennium – a grimdark future where humanity fights for survival on countless planets across the galaxy, including the Imperial planet Vigilus. Stand by your army of choice in The Battle of the War of the Beasts, as one of five powerful Factions—Ultramarines, Orks, Chaos Space Marines, Aeldari Craftworlds, and Genestealer Cults—each powerful in combat by virtue of specialized vehicles and tactics.

Created in partnership with Games Workshop, this special edition of RISK® allows you to vanquish your foes across an immersive map of the Imperial planet Vigilus. Disseminate custom-sculpted soldiers and tanks representing one- and three-unit threats to dominate key locations across Vigilus, such as Dontoria, Kaelac’s Bane & Dirkden, Megborealis, and Oteck Hivesprawl. 40 coveted territories are at stake, with the aforementioned factions at the charge of their dutiful leaders: Marneus Calgar, an Orks Warboss, Abaddon the Despoiler, a Craftworld Autarch, and a Genestealer Cults Magus, respectively. Each has their own unique ability, structured closely in theme to the attack styles of their armies, be it direct, persistent, or stealthy.

Players will also earn Rewards once Objective Cards have been completed, introducing a streamlined path to victory through the acquisition of supplemental armies and strategic advantages. The “Total Domination” variant gives one conqueror of three objectives control over the entire map and subsequent victory!

Along with the custom game board are 225 Faction Unit tokens, 5 Leader tokens, 5 dice, 40 Territory cards, 20 Objective Cards, 16 Reward Cards, and Rules.
