Seems Forge World is continuing on with their Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit releases this week. Last time we got some dwarves. This time we go for something a bit bigger. There’s a new pair of Gundabad Ogres available to order. You can get them as a pair, singles, or as part of a unit […]...

This time of year, there’s lots of talk about elves helping out in Santa’s workshop. There’s also talk of rats, if you’re a fan of ballet. So it seems fitting that Games Workshop would be releasing a new box set for Age of Sigmar that features their versions of elves and rats ...

Two rather opposite ends of the spectrum for the couple releases available from Forge World this week. But, if you’re a fan of really big models, you’re in for a treat. That’s because they have the new Acastus Knight Porphyrion as well as a new Bloodthirster....

The enemies of the Empire of Man are legion. Pretty much ever corner of the galaxy has something creeping around that wants to undo everything. That could be dangerous aliens. That could be the forces of Chaos. That could just be a disgruntled employee down at the local coffee shop. That means there ...

A bit of a scatter-shot set of new releases from Forge World this week. There’s some new pieces for Blood Bowl. You’ve got some new bits for your 40k armies. And there’s a new unit for The Hobbit. Pretty much all we’re missing is an Age of Sigmar release....

While playing Guild Ball and cooking Thanksgiving 2: Thank Harder, I missed the new Legio Custodes tank release from Forge World. Well, I’m here to rectify that, as well as tell you about the new Horus Heresy book collections they’ve got for order....

Well, it’s been the one people have been clamoring for. Ever since Games Workshop stated that they were once again going to be backing their specialty side-games, this is the game everyone’s been anticipating. Sure, Calth and Quest and Overkill are cool and all, but they’re not the ...

Even if you’re a heavily-modified Mechanicum trooper or officer, walking your way across open terrain in battle is a great way to get yourself a one-way ticket to seeing the Emperor in the afterlife. As such, the Macrocarid Explorators were designed as a transport, command vehicle, and heavy we...

Time has been playing weird tricks this week, I feel. The first several days flew by. Thursday took an eternity. Now, today’s doing a little bit of both. I feel like it should be later than it is, so it feels like it’s been a long time since this morning… but I’ve also gotten ...

Well, sort of two ends of the spectrum in terms of new releases from Forge World this week. It’s rare enough that we see even releases for Age of Sigmar on there. But a Lord of the Rings release? I can’t remember the last one of those. Along with some new dwarves, there’s also a [&h...

Games Workshop has started taking orders for a new board game set during the days of the Horus Heresy. This time, we find the voracious Space Wolves against the magic and psycher-enhanced Thousand Sons. The battle for the 31st millennium heats up once more as the planet is bombarded, except for one a...

Never suffer the witch to live. So the saying goes. But you gotta find those witches. What we need is a Witchfinder. Thankfully, Games Workshop is here to supply us with one. They’re taking orders for the new Lord-Veritant for Age of Sigmar....

We’ve once more made it to the weekend. Well, almost to the weekend, anyway. We’ve still gotta finish today. But hopefully that won’t be too painful to get through. Then… Yeah, I just love weekends. And as I’ve mentioned a couple times, tomorrow’s going to be cram-...

Much of the time, Forge World focuses on the sci-fi half of Games Workshop’s catalog. We get new marine transports or some new Primarch. But this week they’re heading to the Age of Sigmar side of things. Now, I didn’t know that there were cyclopian lizard-men in the world, but I kno...

While the US in WWII had to rely on just dropping troops out of a plane, the Empire of Man has a bit of extra technological advantage in order to land squads of marines. That comes in the form of the Sokar Pattern Stormbird. They’ll get your Marines to the battlefield in style and with [&hellip...

The worst way to try and get your troops into battle is just having them walk there. Tac. Marines, Terminators, and Dreadnaughts aren’t known for breaking any land speed records, and they’re vulnerable to enemy fire as they approach. Sure, there’s Rhinos and Land Raiders, but those ...

Ah, the Tactical Marine. The Swiss Army Knife of the 40k world. Pretty much every Space Marine player, as well as quite a few Chaos players, will have a couple units of them around. But with all those players using basically all the same figures, what’s to keep them apart? Well, Forge World is ...

It’s hot outside, folks. Be sure you’re drinking plenty of water and getting in from out of the heat for a while. And to even add more to cooling off, why not imagine you’re on some wind-swept, snowy plane? Games Workshop is here to help with that last bit by taking pre-orders for t...

It’s been a while since Forge World has gone for the Fantasy side of things. Usually, we’re getting new Horus Heresy characters or giant robots (not that I mind giant robots, of course). But this time around, they’ve got something new to order for Age of Sigmar. They’ve got a ...

Games Workshop has a tendency to sometimes post rules for similar armies, or new units for similar armies, across a wide range of publications. As such, it can sometimes be tough trying to play those armies, as you’ve gotta carry around a bunch of books and flip through all those pages to find ...

They are the Sylvaneth. They speak for the trees. Mostly because a lot of them are trees. Or, at least, they’re partially-trees. You know, dryads and other things like that. And they’re certainly marching to war with a whole bunch of new releases over in the Games Workshop webshop....

One of my favorite models I’ve put together in a long time was the DakkaJet from Games Workshop. When I saw one at my LGS when it came out, I picked one up immediately, even though I didn’t play 40k at the time. I still have the model, even though it’s currently the only 40k [&helli...
