“Darktide: The Miniatures Game” invites up to four players to dispense Imperial justice to traitorous Guardsmen and menacing Poxwalkers through a series of dynamic linked missions, utilizing rules inspired by Kill Team.

Tertium, a hive city, is in the throes of a deadly pathogen outbreak that has decimated its defenders or turned them to the dark service of Chaos.

The missions set within the city are perilous, often suicidal, which prompts the Inquisition to recruit from Imperial prison populations—assigning the most hopeless rejects to these dangerous tasks.

In this game, players assume the roles of these desperate individuals, battling against the chaos-infested cityscape of Tertium.

Players can choose from one of four classes inspired by the video game—Veteran, Zealot, Ogryn, and Psyker—each class represented by classic Warhammer 40,000 miniatures.

The adversaries are formidable. The Traitor Guardsmen of the Moebian 6th regiment, equipped with an array of weapons from lasguns and bayonets to specialist gear like grenade launchers and flamers, pose a serious challenge in close-ranged combat scenarios.

In addition, the city is overrun by Poxwalkers, adding to the chaos and complexity of missions aimed at cleansing the city from Nurgle’s corruption.

Inspired by Kill Team Games

“Darktide: The Miniatures Game” includes 20 miniatures—enough for several sessions of intense and gritty spec ops missions.

This game not only serves as a gateway for newcomers to the Warhammer 40,000 universe but also offers seasoned players a fresh way to engage with the tactical skirmish combat reminiscent of Kill Team.
