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....

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...

I know how much people tend to love getting “limited edition” versions of things. They feel special and unique. There’s only maybe a couple out there and you want to get one for yourself. Well, starting tomorrow, Forge World will have a new, limited edition Space Marine mini that yo...

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-...

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...

Friiiiiiidaaaaaaay! The gateway to the weekend. Hopefully you’ve got some gaming planned for the next couple days. I don’t have anything specific lined up, but there’s still plenty of time. At the very least, I’m thinking I want to make some brownies this weekend. Though I mig...

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 ...

We all know that I love gaming. I’m sure you all here do, too (otherwise, this is really an odd website to have on your surfing list). I’m sure most of you, like me, also like helping others. The people that run the NOVA Open certainly love helping others. That’s why they’re 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 ...

The Mechanicum are not generally known for their assault units. They’re just happy to sit back and lob plasma blasts and other various ordinance at their foes. But that’s not to say they don’t have units designed to run into enemy formations and just start shredding stuff up. That&#...

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...

When rules get released for armies, they can sometimes be spread out across a couple publications. Or, at the very least, you can have different publications that each have a different army in them. Carrying around all those books can get tedious, so the folks over at Forge World have consolidated th...

When it comes to giant robots, it’s tough to get bigger than the Warlord Titans from 40k. Being Games Workshop, there’s plenty of options in how you outfit your titans. But there’s not always an actual piece to use for that. Well, Forge World is helping out with a new Titan head, as...

A friend of mine used to be in the Marines. He served overseas for a couple years. While there, they’d still go on regular training missions. One of them involved having to get from one place to another out in the desert. Well, unfortunately, the guy holding the compass was doing so right next to [&h...
