Miniature-Heroes sale extended and first miniature release

Unnamed DragonMiniature-Heroes are extending their summer sale and have also released their first miniature.

From their announcement:
As its proving so popular the Miniature-Heroes Summer Sale is being extended for the whole of July. So that’s still 15% off all the pre-owned stock. 10% off Reaper, Mirliton and Shadowforge, and still 35% off the GW stock I have in the shop.

Also I’m pleased to be able to say I will shortly have some Reaper Master Series Paints and Triads in stock for sale in the UK and Europe. Not the complete range yet, but what we don’t have you can pre-order.

The first MH miniature has also been completed. Sculpted by the talented John Pickford who has done a wonderful job making this little painting dragon. Should be on sale in the shop late July early August depending on how the moulding goes.

He needs a name though so I’m running a competition to find him one. Pop along to my forum, register and post as many suggestions as you like. The one I like best at the end of July will win a Master Casting of the Dragon.

New Flames of War spotlights and articles

The Flames of War website has been updated with several new articles and product spotlights.

Articles
Firestorm Q&A
We provide some answers to the questions you asked in regards to Firestorm.

Kaukopartiojoukot 1942-1944
When the Soviets invaded Finland during the Winter War of 1939, the intelligence department of the Finnish military recognised the need for specialized long-range reconnaissance patrols to raid and gather intelligence deep behind Soviet lines.

Point Of The Spear: Airborne Commanders of Operation Market Garden
Operation Market Garden was a tricky undertaking. No other airborne operation in history compares to the size and scale of Market Garden. Two American and one British airborne divisions and a Polish brigade would be involved. They would drop behind enemy lines into Holland and capture several critical crossings along a highway that stretched from the Belgian border to the city of Arnhem, positioned on the Rhine River.

Italian Armour in German Service
With the release of the Semovente 105/25, Wayne has updated the Italian Armour in German Service article, showing how to field them in Flames Of War outside of Dogs and Devils.

Battlefoam v. Outrider case dismissed

There has been no official word from either party but we have been informed that Outrider Hobbies have been successful in getting the case against them by Battlefoam, filed in New Hampshire, dismissed and closed.

From the court order:

As currently developed, the record in this case contains some suggestion that Battle Foam’s evidence of consumer confusion regarding the parties’ respective marks may be suspect. And, there is a reasonable basis to question why this suit was filed in this forum. At a minimum, a bit of sober reflection by Battle Foam and its counsel would seem to be in order. See generally Fed. R. Civ. P. 11(b).

For the foregoing reasons, as well as those set forth in Wade’s submissions, defendant’s motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction (document no. 5) is granted. The Clerk of Court shall enter judgment in accordance with this order and close the case.

Update: The Living Dice also has a post about the dismissal of the case with a bit more detail as well as links to the original filings.

Bolt Action Fallschirmjager Support Packs available

Warlord Games now have support packs for their 28mm Bolt Action Fallschirmjager figures.

The Fallschirmjager (German Airborne troops) performed the first airborne invasion when they assaulted Denmark on the 9 April 1940. They followed this success up with further successful air landings of Norway and the pyrrhic victory of Operation Mercury in taking Crete.

Ensure your German troops are well equipped with Warlord Games’ range of support packs, including the 81mm mortar and MG 42.

As the old adage goes “Soldiers find things…”. True to form, the Bolt Action Fallschirmjager with Looted Weapons have…ahem…liberated some arms from their defeated enemies.

All of these support packs are now available to order from the Warlord Games Webstore, or on the shelves of your nearest quality independent games store.

New Web of Spiderman previews posted

WizKids have posted a series of new previews from the upcoming Marvel HeroClix Web of Spiderman set

From their website:

In my post last week, I showed off two new figs from Web, Cardiac and Carnage.  Given the fantastic reaction that I received on FaceBook and through email, I think we chose two good figs to start off the previews.  How do you top those two figures?  Well, today, I’m going to show you FOUR figures.

Why show you four figures?  Today’s preview article (and I hope the others that I write as well) is intended to give you a look through our eyes as we create a HeroClix set from the ground up.  Last week, I illustrated how a set’s theme is selected, and the “blue sky” thought-process that goes into initial set design.  Once we arrive at a theme, a new set of challenges and opportunities await the design team.  We know what theme we want to explore, but we need to make the setlist sing.

Witch Hunters and Daemonhunters codex clarification posted

Games Workshop have used their What’s new blog to post a clarification on their recently released 40K Witch Hunters and Daemonhunters codexs. Emphasis below was added by TGN.

From their website:

We recently made the Witch Hunters and Daemonhunters codexes available to download as PDFs. Since then, we’ve received a spate of emails asking questions about the difference between the PDFs and the original, printed copies. Rather than reply to you all individually, I thought I’d try to answer your questions here. Firstly, the rules for allied Space Marines and Inducted Imperial Guard were originally written to reference books that have since gone out of print, so we streamlined the rules required to allow players to collect an army of Daemonhunters or Witch Hunters. The Daemonhunters army list uses the Standard Force Organisation chart, which you’ll find on page 87 of the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook.

The other point that seems to be causing the most confusion is whether or not the PDF versions supersede the printed versions. They don’t: you should feel free to continue to use whatever resources you have available to play your games with; the PDF does not overrule or invalidate the printed Codex book. Yes, this may mean that you and your opponent are using what are essentially different army lists for the same army but not every Inquisition force will comprise of the same elements (highly specialised and secretive forces that they are). And if you’d rather use the same one as your opponent, why not simply decide which version you collectively want to use and share the rules between one another? As for tournaments and gaming events, it’s entirely up to the organisers to decide which version to use; it is after all their event.

Warlord: The Savage North available soon

Warlord: The Savage NorthReaper Miniatures have sent their Warlord: The Savage North expansion to the printers. You can also purchase a poster of the cover.
