How does Warhammer+ work?
Warhammer+ is a bundle subscription that gives you access to a variety of Warhammer content. It costs £4,99/$5,99 a month, with the option to subscribe for a whole year at once and get two months subscription for free.
To sign up, go to MyWarhammer.com, create a profile and proceed to the Warhammer+ subscription page.
Content on Warhammer+ (updated every week)
Warhammer+ is updated with new content every Wednesday, and we’ll keep updating this complete list of content every week as well. As often as we can, we’ll also add small reviews of select pieces of content, such as animated episodes we like or books that are especially great.
One of the main attractions of Warhammer+ is the ability to stream original Warhammer animation series exclusively available with the subscription. It can all be streamed on Warhammer TV.
Hammer and Bolter (Warhammer+ Exclusive)
Hammer and Bolter is an anthology series of animated Warhammer short stories. Warhammer+ launched with 3 episodes of the series, but more will be added regularly. The animation quality isn’t impressive at all, and if you’re not into Warhammer at all the stories will probably also feel cringy, but the series leans heavily into an 80’s/90’s cartoon style with plenty of ominous synthesizer tracks, campy dialogue, supernatural horror and gory combat scenes, so if were a nerdy kid in those decades, chances are you’ll have a great time with this series.
Episode 1: Death’s Hand
In this episode, an Imperial Inquisitor anticipating investiture on Terra runs into trouble on the way there.
Episode 2: Bound for Greatness
In this episode, an Imperal Scribe is tempted by the lure of Chaos through the presence of a book that’s not supposed to be there.
Episode 3: Old Bale Eye
In this episode, an Ork Runtherder tells the tale Old Bale Eye – the Imperial Comissar so good at fighting, the Orks see him as their favourite foe.
Angels of Death
Angels of Death is a Warhammer 40,000 animated series following the Blood Angels Space Marines. It is released episodically.
This used to be a fan project, which then became supported by Games Workshop. It features a unique CGI style with a monochrome+red color scheme that gives it its own personality. The story and acting is 280% Space Marine madness with melodramatic dialogue and a very grimdark atmosphere.
Episode 1: Blood and Duty
This first episode introduces viewers to the crew and inhabitants of the Blood Angels Flagship Sword of Baal.
Episode 2: The Silent City
In the second episode, the Blood Angels get into a fight with Genestealers and Hybrids, while their fleet in orbit is infiltrated.
Episode 3: Trail of Blood
In this episode, the carnage continues.
Episode 4: Awakenings
In this episode, the Blood Angels squad get into serious conversations, and the Genestealer Cults employ even stronger forces against them.

Warhammer TV features battle reports, split into two series – one for Age of Sigmar and one for Warhammer 40,000. These are condensed battle reports with very high production values and lots of explanations for new players. They might not be as tactically advanced as those battle reports you can find on Youtube, but they’re good for beginners, and the models and terrain look amazing.

- Ultramarines vs. Necrons
- Orks vs. Blood Angels
- Ultramarines vs. Death Guard

The Warhammer Vault also contains older Warhammer magazines. There are some recent White Dwarf issues there, of course, but the real treat so far is the digital re-release of Warhammer Visions, an older magazine dedicated entirely to painted models rather than rules and stories. It’s great for painting inspiration.

A Warhammer+ subscription gives access to several Warhammer Apps:
This is the app for watching streamable content such as animated series, battle reports and painting videos. The app is free, but much of its content is exclusive to subscribers.
Warhammer 40,000: The App
A Warhammer+ subscription comes with a subscription to the Warhammer 40,000 app, which gives you access to rules and an army builder for the tabletop game. Be aware that you still have to buy physical rulebooks to use their rules in the app.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: The App
This app is a part of the subscription, and is currently available in a beta version that basically does what the Warhammer 40,000 app does, but for Age of Sigmar.
The subscription also comes with several extra bonuses.
If you subscribe for an entire year, one miniature of your choice will sent to you. This will be either an Imperial Assassin or an Orruk Ironjawz Megaboss.
When you subscribe for one month, you also get a £10 Voucher for the Games Workshop Webstore.
