Edit: And it’s been removed, about 4 minutes after it went up. .. the video consisted of the title “Rogue Trader”, a tagline of “Skirmish Combat in the 41st Millennium”, and a few seconds of new miniature and scenery images (sorry, but I don’t remember any specifics) along with a release date of “Late 2018”. And it’s back, looks like there may have been a typo in the original, although who would ever misspell “Rogue” as “Rouge” 😉
The Warhammer 40K Facebook page just released this video a few minutes ago:
So what is Rogue Trader? Well, in the past it was the subtitle for the 1st edition 40K rulebook, and part of the 1st edition 40K role-playing game. But, what is it now? The video says “Skirmish Combat in the 41st Millennium” – but is it Shadespire for 40K? The new name for Kill Team? Something else entirely? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Edit: now the video is available again, we can see a number of new miniatures including what’s almost certainly some new chaos champion-types, and a board with doors and various scenery pieces. The board looks to be a ship, with consoles and a command throne… a Rogue Trader crew being boarded by Chaos?
