Man, space-janitors have all the cool gear. There’s a new laser cannon available for the Legio Custodes’ dreadnaughts over in the Forge World webshop. Oh how helpful that’d be after a football game… Also available to order is the huge Tau Tiger Shark. Having a problem with ene...

It was a pretty big announcement when Fantasy Flight Games and Games Workshop parted ways. At the time, it seemed as though it was going to be Games Workshop that was going to be making all of their board games. But we’ve just gotten a new announcement from WizKids that they are now partnered w...

Cold and Flu season is coming, and by that, I mean that the forces of Nurgle are amassing and will soon be spreading their virulent pestilence all across the galaxy. … Best stock up on orange juice, Kleenex, and Baneblades. Yes, along with some new Nurgle releases, Games Workshop is taking pre-...

One of the more-popular Imperial Guard groups is the Death Korps of Krieg. I’ve always loved how they look, with their trench coats and gas masks. It’s a very WWI-feel to me, which I think is awesome, since I think that war gets overlooked a lot more than it should. Anyway, there’s ...

We’re not quite to cold and flu season, but it’s certainly on its way. And what do you use to fight against it? Why, the power and fury of the Imperial Army, of course! Well, that’s what happens in 40k when you’ve got Plague Marines on the rampage; the Imperial Guard steps in ...

I tend to repeat myself around here. It’s just in my nature, really (you should hear my dad tell the same story a dozen times). Two things I’ve often said is that walking to battle is for suckers. Also, the Legio Custodes have some of the best janitorial equipment I’ve ever seen. Th...

As I’ve said with pretty much every Legio Custodes release, I wish I had that kind of gear back when I was a janitor. This one, in particular, would’ve been nice. Trust me, I’ve come across many, many, many things in those previous jobs that made me go, “Kill it with fire!!!&#...

In the grim dark of the far-off future, the line between man and machine has certainly blurred. Cyborg implants help the servants of the Emperor with their everyday tasks, from filing things in the grand libraries to taking on the Heretic. The machine-makers are highly revered as they walk off to war...

Over the next three days, high school, then college, and then pro football players will be hitting the gridiron to see who is the best. I’m sure that there are many of you out there that will also be hitting the tabletop gridiron to prove much the same in games of Blood Bowl, as well […]...

One of the games that’s been around seemingly forever is Warhammer 40k. Hell, for most of you reading this, it might as well have been around forever, since it’s probably older than you are. To celebrate 30 years of the game, Games workshop has created a commemorative Primaris Space Marin...
