Warhammer Community Sneak Peeks

They might be expert raiders themselves, but even the Drukhari can’t stop Warhammer Community from rummaging through their upcoming codex and stealing away 7 of our favourite things we found. Don’t worry, we’ll put them back before the book’s released.

1. Lords of Commorragh


Sometimes* an Archon avoids being stabbed in the back long enough to become a true master of their craft, making good use of their long lifespans to hone murderous skills to a razor-sharp edge. By spending a few extra points you can upgrade yours to a Master Archon, unlocking new abilities and a powerful Relic for the taking.

That’s not to say that your Succubi and Haemonculi can’t also reach the heady heights of their own respective disciplines, but sadly we didn’t have time to steal their rules, so you’ll just have to wait for the codex to arrive.

2. Favoured Retinues
While sneaking through the dark and deadly city of Commorragh, we had to evade several bands of elite bodyguards which seemed to be hanging around the aforementioned Master Archons. No doubt the Master Succubi and Haemonculi had their own retinues too, but we were lucky enough not to see any.

3. Raiding Forces


The Drukhari are known for their lightning raids into enemy territory, with many small warbands clustering together in the hope of acquiring more loot and slaves than their rivals. Now it’s easier than ever to build your own wildly varied raiding force featuring all the Kabals, Cults and Covens you could shake a very pointy stick at.

DrukhariFF Mar16 Image5lafi

One in a blue moon, a particularly capable Archon is able to enlist the services of their fellow Drukhari directly with promises of plunder on an unseen scale. These united hosts of dark Aeldari act with a degree of coordination rarely seen among their piratical race, and are thankfully a rare thing to behold.

4. Kabal of the Poisoned Tongu

We had a good chance to spy on one particular Kabal, and we’re quite worried about what we found. You may have seen from the new Drukhari boxes that splinter weapons are back in all their venomous glory, but wouldn’t it be a mite concerning if their poison was even more potent?

DrukhariFF Mar16 Image6mexp

Perhaps even more worrying than that is their ability to suddenly pop up where you least expect them. That Ravager you swear was sitting in plain view? It’s now on the other side of the board getting well acquainted with your prized vehicles.

5. Power From Pain


Perhaps the weirdest part of Commorragh’s soul-eating denizens is the supernatural power they get from inflicting pain on their prey. Far from just a matter of sadistic satisfaction, Drukhari warriors get more and more dangerous as the agony they inflict hypes them up into an ever greater frenzy.

6. Combat Drugs


Not content with being extremely fast and dangerous even on their worst days, the Drukhari’s Wyches take all manner of skill-enhancing substances to spur their abilities to even more ridiculous heights. We didn’t touch any of them – that stuff is seriously bad news – but we did spy a few details that you might be interested in.

DrukhariFF Mar16 Image11nbgl

No longer covetous of their favourite stimulants, multiple units of Wyches can now take the same drug if they so desire. Some are even so battle-crazed that they will take two random Combat Drugs at the same time, although as you might imagine this can lead to some unexpected results.

7. Relics

As befits a race with long lifespans and the natural artisanal talents of the Aeldari, the armouries of the Drukhari are resplendent with equipment far surpassing the quality you’d find in the hands of a regular Kabalite. We managed to pinch a couple of them on our way out, so make sure you get a good look before we have to put them back.

Pouring from their Raider transports in search of slaves and plunder, Kabalites have always looked to close with their prey, and now they’re even more capable of swift and bloody close combat than before. A quick glance at their digested datasheet shows a crucial extra Attack in their profile, which if you ask us has been a long time coming for these agile and wickedly sharp raiders.*

As well as the warriors themselves, the guns they carry are also seeing a few changes. Chief among them is the fearsome splinter cannon, which now deals 2 Damage, making it a powerful deterrent to any would-be defenders of Humanity.**

The Drukhari codex may have been delayed in the webway, but will soon be descending on Mankind as the first xenos codex release of 2021. We know aeldari players of all stripes (and their Battle Sister opponents) will be eager to see how the denizens of Commorragh have changed, so make sure you stay tuned to Warhammer Community for more information as we get closer to the pre-order.

The dreaded Drukhari blast back into realspace later this month with a new codex, which features new ways for them to terrorise their enemies. Here are a few of our favourites.

1. Better, Harder, Faster


We’ve already seen that Kabalite Warriors are getting better in the new codex. It’s not just the Kabals that are improving, though – most units in the army are getting an extra Attack. So whether you like to field Wyches, Hellions, or even a Cronos, you’ll be dishing out even more pain.

2. Friendlier


Okay, “friendly” isn’t a word that we usually associate with the Drukhari, but the new codex makes it easier than ever to mix Wych Cults, Kabals, and Haemonculus Covens without spending all of your Command points. Now you can build the realspace raiding party of your dreams (or should that be nightmares?).

 3. Brush Up on Your Background


The lore in the codex not only features classic tales of the birth of the Drukhari, the rise of Vect, and the twisted port of Commorragh, it also brings them right up to date with a look at War Zone: Gaban. No spoilers here, but let’s just say that things aren’t looking good for the Adeptus Mechanicus.* 

4. Rule the Dark City


As with all of the new codexes for Warhammer 40,000, the Drukhari one will feature a suite of new Crusade rules. Using the spoils you gain from your raids, you can claim new territories within Commorragh, from weapon forges to Incubi shrines to trading districts. Each one will help your army to grow and will spread your influence – can you rise up to challenge Vect as the master of Commorragh? Would you be fool enough to do so?

5. Terror Tactics

Alongside the pick of those from the current Drukhari codex, the new codex features a whole host of new Stratagems. So, whether you want to dominate the skies with Razorwing Fighters or unleash shambling hordes of Wracks, you’ll find the perfect Stratagem to make them even better. Your enemies will be praying that you don’t take them alive before you know it.

Faith and fire meet agility and sadism in the new Warhammer 40,000 battlebox, Piety and Pain. 

Contestant 2: Lelith Hesperax

The Battle Sisters will have their work cut out for them, as they’re about to face the winner of our Warhammer 40,000 Death Match, who cut down the likes of Sly Marbo and Castellan Crowe to take her crown. Never one to rest on her laurels, it looks like Lelith has been sharpening her skills even further since then.

Piety PainMiniFocus Mar08 Image4ofdti

As a master performer as well as a fighter, Lelith Hesperax knows how to delight her audience with displays of lethal acrobatics and blood-soaked artistry.

This fantastic set includes two armies – Adepta Sororitas and Drukhari – alongside a 32-page campaign book packed with datasheets, missions, Crusade rules, and Theatre of War rules for urban arenas. There’s also the story behind the campaign, as Lelith Hesperax murders her way through Battle Sisters, which you can find out more about in our suitably grisly preview.

The Adepta Sororitas army includes five heavy-weapon toting Retributors with a pair of Armorium Cherubs, a heavily armoured Immolator, and a Palatine – a new hero with head and weapons options.


The Drukhari force is a swift Wych Cult warband led by the legendary duellist Lelith Hesperax. The stunning new plastic model of this beloved character is joined by ten Wyches, five winged Scourges, and a Venom.

14 03 SundayPreview PPDruk8xj3

You can play the missions in the box with these forces, pitting furious firepower against speed, and both armies form the perfect base to expand into larger collections – or add to an existing one. Pre-order Piety and Pain from Saturday, alongside a shiny new codex for the Drukhari.

14 03 SundayPreview DrukCodex7k3

This book lets you use your collection of Kabals, Wych Cults, and Haemonculus Covens in realspace raids across tabletops everywhere. It has everything you’d expect from a codex – datasheets for the entire Drukhari range, extensive background, gorgeous art, army-wide abilities, a miniatures showcase, and, of course, bespoke Crusade rules for your xenos raiders. It’s simply a must-have for any fan of the Drukhari – and it includes a code to unlock all the rules from the book in Warhammer 40,000: The App.

If you want a tome worthy of an Archon, the collector’s edition is for you.

14 03 SundayPreview DrukCodexCE69dk1

This volume includes all the content, plus it features a soft-touch, foiled hardback, coloured page edges, and a marker ribbon. This deluxe codex is sure to sell out fast, so remember to raid the Games Workshop webstore early on Saturday to claim your prize.

If you want to start a raiding force alongside the new book, Combat Patrol: Drukhari is for you.

14 03 SundayPreview DrukCP527ch3This boxed set contains 18 plastic models, making up a force that’s perfect as an army for Combat Patrol-sized games or the start of a Crusade force. Top tip: adding the Drukhari half of Piety and Pain would be an awesome move. Combat Patrol: Drukhari is themed around the Kabals, with an Archon leading 10 Kabalite Warriors and five Incubi into battle. Every raid needs speed and firepower, and that’s where the Raider and Ravager come in.

To go with your new codex and models, you can pick up Drukhari datacards and dice. 

The datacards set includes all 41 Stratagems for your army, including seven from the Core Rules. The dice are a deep turquoise – as dark as a Drukhari’s soul – with off-white pips and the sigil of the Kabal of the Black Heart in place of the 6. The set includes 20, which is enough to drown your opponents in volleys of splinter fire.

The Drukhari are also involved in the latest crisis to face the Imperium in The Book of Rust, the first act in the War Zone Charadon series.
