*puts on some Ozzy – Bark at the Moon* It seemed the most appropriate song to go along with this news story. Werewolves of London came in a close second. Anyway, the Space Wolves are getting themselves a new codex and also some new models in the form of some new-looking wulfen figures. You can ...

Once more Forge World has new ways that you can customize your Space Marine miniatures. This time around, if you’re wanting to play Alpha Legion, or if you’ve been itching for some more options for your Cataphractii terminators, you’ll want to see what they’ve got available fo...

As many people that play 40k know, a lot of people play some form of Space Marines. It makes sense since there’s numerous chapters, even before you get into Chaos and the various marines that they can put on the battlefield. So making your army stand out from your buddy’s army can be a bi...

Forge World is making it easy to pick up some of their collections over on their website by bundling together some popular items and offering them at a single price. Makes it a lot easier to just click a couple buttons and order like-items than to have to hunt around for each one individually. Also, ...

Well, we’ve had one “popular board game turned into video game” update for today. Why not another? In this case, it’s that Space Hulk: Ascension will soon be making its way to your PS4s (though, currently, I only have a PS2. … Don’t Mock Me!). This is because HR Ga...

Fly like an eagle… into the fuuuutuuuuuuure! Though eagles don’t tend to need jetpacks to get around, and in the grim darkness of the future there is only war. But either way, there’s a bunch of new releases over at Forge World that you can put in orders for. Well, it’s a coup...

Sometimes starting out a new game can be rough. You’re not entirely sure where to begin. What models should you get? What constitutes a good core of a new force? If you and your friend want different factions, what’s a good way to make sure you both end up with something roughly equivalen...

One thing with board games going to a digital medium is that new versions of the game can come out that have new skins and new mechanics and such relatively easily. Such is the case with Nomad Games’ upcoming version of Talisman, which will take place in the grim darkness of a future of only [&...

With all the Space Marine chapters out there, lots of players can play “the same army” but have wildly different backstories for their forces. Thankfully, a Space Marine model is pretty modular. There’s a lot of bits you can swap out to easily distinguish your chapter from your frie...

If Games Workshop gives you anything, it’s options. I’ve known that since I played 40k back in the 2nd edition-3rd edition days. Nothing has changed in the interim years, as I realized when putting together the Betrayal at Calth set and decided to magnetize everything. The Sergeants, alon...

For those that enjoy Warhammer 40,000 and maybe also like MOBA-style video games, this is probably a story you’ll enjoy. The reason being is that Warhammer 40k: Dark Nexus Arena is now available on Steam Early Access. They’ve also got a new play mode and a new hero for you to use....

It’s time once again for Friday. Now, normally, the week after a “short week” (such as last week) feels like they take forever. At least, to me they do. That’s why if given my druthers, I’d have a Monday off rather than a Friday. You get a long weekend and then a short w...

Sometimes you just need a gun so big it needs its own set of tank treads to move it around. Sometimes, even one set of tank treads isn’t enough. You need multiple sets of tracks in order to get that thing around. Well, the Mechanicum Ordinatus Ulator is one such beast of a weapon....

Yes, a story today that’s not just a sale. Well, I mean, something if for-sale, but it’s not necessarily on-sale, if you know what I mean. I mean, you can go and buy it, but there’s no special sort of dis… oh nevermind, here’s a new mini from Forge World you can go order...

Or is it Friday Snippets, because I have the day off tomorrow? (and hopefully you do, too) Either way, it’s some bite-sized stories before we have lots more bites tomorrow for Thanksgiving. And yes, I really am as jazzed about the holiday as it seems. Anyway, today’s bites include: Lead A...

I spent much of my weekend time dealing with the 31st Millennium. But I finally finished magnetizing my Calth set. Why’d it take so long? Well, just counting up the options for the 3 tac squad sergeants, I had to set over 30 magnets in order to make sure I could swap out everything I […]...

I’m fairly equal-opportunity when it comes to liking giant robots. Lately we’ve been getting them for both humans and Tau from Games workshop (as well as a few other companies. Well, robots for humans, anyway. I don’t think any other companies have put out Tau robots recently). Well...

Well, seems a day doesn’t go by that we’re not getting another video game based on the Games Workshop properties of Warhammer 40k and Fantasy. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing, mind you. Seems some people yesterday weren’t thrilled with the idea of a MOBA-type game. Wel...

Confession: I have never played an actual MOBA video game. My computer at home is around 8 years old and wasn’t top-of-the-line when I got it. My work computer I obviously want to just use for work-related things. However, I have a good understanding of the mechanics of them. First from, well, ...

Games Workshop has a brand new stand-alone board game available. It takes place during the tumultuous times of the Horus Heresy, when the various Space Marine chapters split apart, some of them staying with the Emperor, and others following Horus and converting to the powers of Chaos. The wars that w...

Well, the Betrayal at Calth set seems to be getting a lot of attention, as one would expect. Heck, I spent much of Saturday morning typing about it. Unfortunately, as I was feeling rather under the weather yesterday, I didn’t get a chance to put the rest of the set together. That’ll be ev...

Is there anything worse than when a friend suddenly turns their back on you? I guess if that friend then started trying to slice you up with lightning claws, that’d be worse. Or if your friend was a dreadnaught and now they want to step on you. That’d also be pretty bad. Well, that’...

I have to say, the look of various Games Workshop/Forge World models sometimes leaves me scratching my head. I tend to not really like it when things are overly-flashy or models are in really awkward poses. Neither of those are the case with the new Solar Auxilia Veletaris Storm Section unit thatR...

In battle, it’s always best to have a buddy. Someone there to watch your back and make sure the battle goes as according to plan (as “according to plan” as it can, anyway, considering battle). Next month, Games Workshop is running a Doubles Weekend. And you don’t even have to ...
