Forge World Taking Orders For Coronus Grav-carrier

As I’ve said, space janitors in the 41st millennium have all the coolest things. The Legio Custodes get these cool Coronus Grav-carriers to get from place to play.

Games Workshop Taking Pre-Orders For Gangs of Commorragh Game

One of the types of games that people want to see come back from Games Workshop (from just chats that I have with my various gamer friends) are the skirmish games that allow a campaign system that lets your grow your characters as you go along. You know the couple classic titles where you could do that. Well, those old ones aren’t exactly back, but GW is offering a new one: Gangs of Commorragh. Take to the skies with your gang of Dark Eldar Reavers and Hellions.

Review Roundup

It’s another beautiful day here in Atlanta. The clouds are out. It’s raining. There was dense fog this morning.
What? You don’t think that’s beautiful weather?
You know what they call a place that has nothing but “beautiful, sunny days”? The desert. Relatively few things live there.
You know what they call a place that has rain all the time? The rain forest, some of the most bio-diverse and bio-dense areas of the planet! So there!
Ok… that got weirdly antagonistic for no reason. Maybe I should just go check out some game reviews. Yeah. That’s a good idea.

Today we have: Everzone, Portal, The Captain Is Dead, Triumvirate of the Imperium – Inquisitor Greyfax, Triumvirate of the Imperium – Belisarius Cawl, Raise Your Goblets, The Three Little Pigs, Concordia, Adrenaline, Hands in the Sea, Neuroshima Hex iPad Edition, 7 Wonders: Duel, Klask, Rise of Mafia, and Cavern Tavern.

New Legio Custodes Releases Available To Order From Forge World

I was a custodian for a while. I worked at a grocery store, a college sports arena, and a hospital (not at the same time). I tell you what, though, I never got to use any cool equipment like dreadnaught suits and grav tanks. Man, space-janitors in the Warhammer universe get all the cool gear!

New Dwarves, Knight Heads, Contest From Forge World

We’ve got a little bit of everything from Forge World today. For those that are Lord of the Rings fans, there’s a new Hill Dwarf Unit and Command.

Finally, if you’re wanting a reprinting of the original Rogue Trader rules, they have a contest going where you could win one.

New Acastus Knight, Bloodthirster Available From Forge World

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.

Codex: Imperial Agents Available to Order From Games Workshop

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 has to be those that are willing to root out that dissent and get rid of it (usually via bolter). That’s where the Imperial Agents come in, their new codex of which for 40k is available to order from Games Workshop.

New Blood Bowl, 40k, Lord of the Rings Releases Available From Forge World

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.

New Horus Heresy Book Collections And Legio Custodes Tank Available From Forge World

Macrocarid Explorators Available From Forge World

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 weapons platform. Heavily armed and armored, this vehicle is a way to get you to the fracas in style.

Friday Snippets

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 a ton of stuff done. So I dunno. I do know that I’m possibly going to be playing some Guild Ball this evening and then some D&D tomorrow. So that’s cool. Better pack myself full of energy with some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Imperial Knight Heads From Forge World, Knight Models Previews Suicide Squad Dice, Kromlech New Release: Legionary Shotgun, Angels and Demons join Flatminis 2D miniatures range, Shadows of Esteren Announces Partnership with Syrinscape, Talisman is Free to Play This Weekend Only, Comrades in Battle Reaches Funding Goal, 15mm Naval Crews Range is Back From Capitan Games, and Final Days for Tavern Masters Kickstarter.

New 40k and Hobbit Releases Available To Order From Forge World

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 couple of 40k releases as well. Told you it was two ends of the spectrum.

The Burning of Prospero Game Available From Games Workshop

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 area that’s been heavily shielded and must thus be attacked via a ground assault. Who will prevail in the Burning of Prospero?

New Limited Edition Space Marine Mini Coming From Forge World

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 you can get for your very own.

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-packed full of gaming. I’m really looking forward to it. Hopefully your day is likewise scheduled.
But before we get there, we should fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

New Sokar Pattern Stormbird Available From Forge World

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 some pretty heavy support going on.

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 might throw in something a little special…
That being cayenne pepper. You know, I’ve heard a lot about mixing “heat” with “sweet” and am finally gonna give it a go. I’ll let you know about the results.

Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy some gaming. Tomorrow’s the monthly gaming day at my friend’s library, where I’ll be getting a couple games in. Hopefully you have roughly similar plans. If I’m going to make it through a marathon gaming session, I need to bulk up on some bite-size gaming stories. Good thing that’s just what I’ve got here.

Forge World Taking Orders For Mastodon Heavy Transport

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 only hold a relatively small squad of guys. If you really want to get a bunch of Marines to where you need them, you might want to check out the Mastodon Heavy Transport.

New Legion Tactical Squads Available To Order From Forge World

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 here to help, as they’re taking orders for dozens of new Legion Tactical Squads in their webshop from all sorts of different chapters.

Novamarines Charity Auction Up Now

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 always running their charity army auctions. They’ve currently got one up and going for a Space Marine army with the proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders.

New Tau Available To Order From Forge World

Dun na-na-nun na-na-nun na-na-nun na-na-naaa-naaa, Barracuda!
Even if you’re not a fan of classic rock, you might be a fan of taking out your enemies from up in the sky. Or maybe you just want some giant robots (we all know my thoughts on giant robots). The new Barracuda flier and a set of “experimental” Battlesuits is available to order from Forge World.

Forge World Taking Orders For The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Army List Book

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 rule you might need. It can be rough. Thankfully, they will occasionally put out a compilation book that brings together all those rules in one place. The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Army List book is just such a tome, and you can order yours now.

New Mechanicum Ursarax Available To Order From Forge World

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’s exactly what the Mechanicum Ursarax are for, and they’re available to order now from Forge World.

Stormcloud Attack Aerial Combat Game Available From Games Workshop

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 model I have. Well, now I can actually play a new game from Games Workshop called Stormcloud Attack.

The Horus Heresy – Crusade Imperialis Available to Order From Forge World

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 three of them and put them all in one place. And they’re taking orders for the book now.

Games Workshop Taking Pre-Orders For Lost Patrol
