Well, it’s been almost a week. So, I’m sure all of you are all extremely tired of 40k already and want to play something else… I’m kidding. But if that actually is the case, and you want to play some The Hobbit, well, Forge World has some new figures you can order for the game...

It goes without saying that Games Workshop has been making miniatures for quite a long time now. Many sculpts have come and gone, thought to be never seen again. Well, occasionally, they’ll grab some molds from a bygone time and whip up some figures if you ask them nicely. For Blood Bowl coache...

Forge World is hitting two ends of the timeline spectrum this week with their releases. On one side, they’re in the far off and mythical past of Blood Bowl with some new goblin secret weapon figures, plus a new pitch to play on, as well as bundling those in with teams and the base box […...

I know. I know. This was supposed to go up yesterday. Well, WordPress has been flaky lately and it missed its posting window. Hence why it’s going up now with a reworded opening talking about it not being posted on Saturday instead of saying, “I’m going to the LGS and gonna pick me ...

It was hard to decide which item to feature here for this latest set of releases from Forge World. They didn’t have anything last week, but they’ve certainly made up for it this week. There’s a new version of the famous Thunderhawk Gunship, a pair of new Imperial Armour books, and a...

By now, I’m sure you’ve probably heard about it. I mean, we mentioned it last week. But there’s a new edition of Warhammer 40k available to pre-order from Games Workshop. 8th Edition brings familiar mechanics that you’ve seen before with some new twists and ways to put forces ...

A little different item for you today from Games Workshop. They’ve not come out with a Hobbit release for a bit, but you can get two kits from their webshop. One’s the main crew, being Thorin Oakenshield & Company. The other is the Goblin King & Retinue. There’s also some ...

Continuing their Primarchs Series, Forge World is now taking orders for Magnus the Red. As usual, he’s available in several forms. You can get him on his own, with a retinue of troops, or as a diorama set along with Leman Russ (the primarch, not the tank)....

The new edition of 40k isn’t the only thing going on with that particular universe. Devil Pig Games is taking their game system used for Heroes of Normandie and sending it into the far future and far from Earth. Heroes of Black Reach will be a new game set in the grimdark future where there [&h...

June 3rd. That’s not that far away, really. A week and a half. That’s when you’ll be able to get your name on the list to get the newest edition of Warhammer: 40k from Games Workshop. Once your name’s on that list, it’ll be a 2-week wait until you get your game, as the o...

You know, as I’ve gone on in my gaming career, I’ve more-and-more found myself drawn to skirmish games. Not that I think there’s anything inherently bad or wrong with large-army games. They’re just not really for me, anymore. So when I see that Games Workshop has started takin...

Whether you’re on the fields of Middle Earth or on some planet far off from Terra, nobody likes having to walk to battle. Better to get someone or something else to deliver you to the action. I.E. – Drive closer so I can hit them with my sword! Well, that’s what Forge World has for ...

The new season of Blood Bowl is now available to order from Games Workshop. If you were hoping for some of the teams from the older version of the game that weren’t there in the latest version (for example, Lizardmen for me), you’ll be happy to see that they’re here, as well as some...

Some people see rats as pests. Others see them as pets. Still others see them as a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield or pitch. That last group are Ratling players. They should be excited about a new Star Player for Blood Bowl and a Verminlord for Age of Sigmar being available to […]...

I was over at the LGS the other day, picking up some minis, and happened to watch several games of Age of Sigmar. One guy was using the new Kharadron Overlords. I have to admit, steampunk-style dwarves are pretty cool. If you’ve got a force, or are thinking of starting one, Games Workshop’...

The space-Egyptians are getting more love from Forge World. This time around, regular Tactical squads have an upgrade kit (or you can buy just a whole, full squad) and there’s some new Terminators available to order as well....

This could easily double as a Terrain Corner piece, since there’s quite a lot of new scenery that is available to order this week. Along with that, Games Workshop is celebrating quite a prestigious occasion for White Dwarf, the publication now being around for 40 years (I.E. – I’m a...

We all know that a Dreadnaught is a very old Space Marine that went above and beyond the call of duty during his regular service, but their body has been mostly blown to bits, so they’re tossed in a giant robotic body to keep them in the fight. But what happens when a Librarian gets […]...

You know, when you normally think of dwarves, you think of them down in some mountain keep somewhere. You might not think to look up and see them floating overhead. But that’s just what they’re doing in Age of Sigmar, and you can order the new Kharadron Overlords airship, along with some ...

The work week continues along. We’re halfway home (“home” in this case being the weekend, of course). If we’ve made it this far, there’s a good chance we’ll make it the rest of the way. But just to make sure, we should bulk up on some bite-size gaming stories. Toda...

With a library of miniatures going back literally decades, Games Workshop couldn’t realistically keep everything they’ve ever made in stock. That’d be ridiculous. But since they aren’t made regularly, some older pieces can be really hard to find. Well, occasionally, GW will di...

Still miffed that when I was a custodian (including at this place), I never got to play with anything as cool as powered armor or a jetbike. Though riding around in the gators was always cool. Though emptying out the parking lot trashcans on a jetbike would’ve been cooler. Anyway, while I didn&...

Blood for the blood god! Even if you’re not a regular GW-player, there’s a good chance you know that call to arms. Khorne, the Chaos god, is fairly well known for the battle cry of his followers. And those followers are getting bolstered in Age of Sigmar by a new Battletome and set of War...

On just about every Blood Bowl team, you’ll have “the big guy.” You know, that one player who literally towers above the rest, daring the opponent’s players to try and tackle them. For many, that “big guy” comes in the form of a Troll, and Games Workshop has starte...

One expects to see tanks out on the battlefield when playing a game of 40k. There’s all manner of them around. And normally you might not expect to see one when playing Blood Bowl. Well, if you’re playing for or against a Dwarven team, that might not be the case. And this week, Forge Worl...

So, a while back, Forge World was coming out with a bunch of Adeptus Custodes miniatures. I remember lamenting how cool those space janitors had it while all I ever got was a kinda neat portable pressure washer for after basketball and football games at the Arena. Well, if you’ve been wanting t...

The Hobbit is getting a couple more releases over on Forge World’s website. It’s two ends of the scale this week. You’ve got the industrious but short dwarves. And you’ve got the nearly-mindless and rather monstrous trolls. So, whether you want little-smashy or big-smashy, the...

I really wish I was at GAMA. Yesterday we had quite a few really important announcements. Of course, those weren’t the only ones made at the show. Games Workshop also had a couple of announcements. One’s in the form of a steampunk-esque Dwarf faction for Age of Sigmar. The other is for a ...

In the 40k universe, Space Marine armor has gone through quite a few changes over the centuries. Though game-wise it’s all come down to that 3+ armor that we all know (and maybe love, but that depends on what side of the ceramite your figures are on). But aesthetically, it’s certainly cha...
