The Shadow of the Warmaster brings a new balance patch!


“So comes the beginning of the end.”

– Ezekyle Abaddon, First Captain

Balance changes herald the arrival of the Warmaster! As the defenders of Terra and the Imperium stand ready to repel the forces of Chaos, both sides take preparations and resupply for the next stage of the siege! 

Multiple factions receive balance changes in preparation for the Shadow of the Warmaster expansion going live, adapting them to the new competitive scene after many cards from the Isstvan III set become exclusive to the Legacy game mode.
