News: Monstrous Arcanum

Even more news, now from Warhammer Forge and their next coming book Monstrous Arcanum. After reading through Tamurkhan I must say I'm quite excited for this book as well even if I feel that it probably won't be as useful (like having an official Chaos Dwarf army list. But non the less it seems like they continue to have really high quality on their books with beautiful illustrations. Will wait with buying it though as the new Empire stuff will eat through my already starving wallet. Down below you can see what they say about the book on the Warhammer Forge webpage.

This is the eagerly-anticipated first book in a new series from Warhammer Forge, and as its name suggests Monstrous Arcanum deals with a veritable carnival of monsters both arcane and bloodthirsty. Within this 113 page, full-colour hardback book, you will find 32 new monsters – nightmarish horrors and noble beasts, creatures of magic made flesh and the victims of terrible curses inflicted by dark powers – presented in the form of Binding Scrolls for use with any Warhammer army. 

These are not limited to just Storm of Magic games, however, as the book contains nine scenarios and special rules to allow these deadly creatures to be fielded in regular Warhammer battles, and a helpful appendix chart to allow you to theme your monsters to your army.

Lavishly illustrated throughout with some of the finest artwork yet produced by Rhys Pugh and Sam Lamont and presented in gold-inlaid leather effect binding, Monstrous Arcanum takes the form of a detailed bestiary of these infernal and terrible creatures, and also contains new magic items and artefacts alongside a short narrative campaign. Our Visual Feed channel on youtube also has an interview about Monstrous Arcanum with Alan Bligh.

This fantastic book will be on sale in limited numbers at the Forge World Open Day on Sunday 1st April, and is also available to pre-order now for despatch from the 10th April.


  1. Simply cannot wait for this - pre-ordered straight away!

  2. If I had more money I would have pre-ordered this one as well. Looks like an really nice book, just as the Tamurkhan book.
