With the new cards offered by the Planetfall cycle, your units can gain powerful new abilities and grow stronger when you fight on planets that support your faction’s overall goals. For example, the Astra Militarum is predominantly interested in finding new strongholds to use in the war against xenos and Chaos, so they naturally gravitate towards the green strongpoint type symbol. Dark Eldar, on the other hand, prefer to take slaves from the planets they attack, so they more motivated to conquer planets with the red material type symbol.
Alongside these new mechanics, the Planetfall cycle continues to expand the play styles available to each faction by introducing new warlords. Each faction, including the Tyranids faction introduced in The Great Devourer, receives a warlord that offers a new style of play. Among the warlords in this cycle, you’ll find a warrior of Khorne, a Black Templars chaplain, an Eldar autarch, and more. In addition to a new warlord, each faction receives new units, supports, attachments, and events to expand their claim over the Traxis sector.
