Anvil Eight Previews More Rhommox Sculpts for Aetherium

The Rhommox are unlike other factions for Aetherium. They’re not out for a particular ideology or simply trying to conduct business in a new form. They only want to spread, infect, and destroy. As such, their tactics are different from how others operate. And their figures are much more alien. Check out the Volatile sculpts below.

AEG Announces That 70s Expansion for Smash Up

The thing about Smash Up is that AEG can pull in references from pretty much everywhere in order to make new factions. In this case, they’re hitting the wayback machine to the time of disco, bell bottoms, platform shoes, and polyester leisure suits. Yes, it’s the 70s.

“You made the Earth move under my feet.” It’s something you say to someone else for really getting you or doing something great.

Fantasy Flight Previews AT-RT For Star Wars: Legion

While we never see the Rebels using the AT-RT in the classic trilogy of Star Wars films, it was a piece of equipment that they could’ve possibly picked up, as we see Clone Troopers using them in the prequel trilogy. Not as heavily armed or armored as the AT-ST, the vehicle still gave some added protection to its rider, as well as some powerful weapons that a regular soldier wouldn’t’ve been able to carry on their own. They’ll be making their way to Star Wars: Legion, and Fantasy Flight is giving you a preview.

Mantic Shows Giant Renders For Kings of War: Vanguard

Big miniatures are my favorites. Sure, I have a fondness for Gretchin and Skinks and such. But the really huge figures are my real favorites. And Kings of War: Vanguard has some huge minis coming with it. Mantic is showing off renders of the giants that you can get as part of the Late Pledge campaign for the game. These figures clock in at 180mm tall, with plenty of alternate parts to customize your kit and create different types of giant.

Draft Packs Now Available For Star Wars: Destiny

I love draft events. Sure, there’s something to creating a deck ahead of time and making sure it’s as tightly-wound as you can. But there’s also something to flying by the seat of your pants, making your deck from a limited set of cards and having to use only your wits and skill to make it through. Star Wars: Destiny has new draft packs that you can use to have some cool events with.

Way of the Fighter Now Available

If your Valentine’s day didn’t quite turn out like you’d hoped, I still hope it didn’t end up with you squaring off with an opponent, prepping your various martial arts moves in the attempt to knock the other fighter into unconsciousness… unless, of course, that was just you and your significant other playing some Way of the Fighter, which is available now from Ninja Division.

It feels like an eternity ago when Star Wars: Legion was announced at Gen Con. You’ve spent many long months waiting, anticipating, reading previews, watching videos.

Well, the wait is getting shorter all the time, and if you want to get a hands-on experience with the game, you’re only 3 weeks (and change) out from doing so if your LGS is one of the lucky ones who will get to start showing demos of the product on March 8th.
