Once your name’s on that list, it’ll be a 2-week wait until you get your game, as the official release date is June 17th.

New Grav Tank And Chariot Available To Order From Forge World

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 you today with their new releases. There’s the Iron Hills Chariot as well as the Legio Custodes Caladus Grav-Tank Annihilator.

New Thousand Sons Kits Available To Order From Forge World

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.

New Releases Available To Order From Games Workshop

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 assuming longer than most of you reading this now have been around). They’ve made a special mini in honor of the occasion.

Thousand Sons Contemptor Dreadnaught Available To Order From Forge World

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 put into one of those? Well, you get something like the Thousand Sons Contemptor Dreadnaught, now available to order from Forge World.

New Dreadnaught, Hobbit Miniatures Available to Order From Forge World

Two ends of the spectrum, of sorts, with new figures over in the Forge World webshop this week. On one side, you’ve got a new Space Wolves Contemptor Dreadnaught (with and without weapon arms). On the other side, you’ve got some new characters available for The Hobbit.

New Blood Bowl Team, Automata Available To Order From Forge World

Once again, we’ve got two very distinctly different releases available from Forge World on the same day. Whether you’re looking for a new Blood Bowl team to put onto the pitch or some giant battle robots, they’ve got you covered.

New Gyrfalcon Pattern Jetbikes Available To Order From Forge World

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’t get to use them, you will be able to, as Forge World is taking orders for Gyrfalcon pattern Jetbikes over in their webshop.

New 40k Releases Available To Order From Forge World

Those super-soldiers, the space marines, are getting some more releases next week, thanks to Forge World. They’ve started taking orders for Iron Warriors Siege Terminators as well as Legion Moritats, armed with either plasma pistols or volkite serpentas (… whatever those might be).

New Blood Bowl, 40k Kits Available to Order From Forge World

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 World has tanks for both games available to order (ok, so the Deathroller isn’t really a tank, but it’s as close as you’re gonna get in Blood Bowl). There’s also a new Legio Custodes unit and upgrade kit.

New Adeptus Custodes Miniatures Available to Order From Games Workshop

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 to fill out your forces from those couple of bits, the home base of Games Workshop has come out with a box set, as well as individual kits that you can now pre-order.

New Fantasy Race And Box Game Announced by Games Workshop

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 new boxed game that’s kinda… well… it’s Necromunda (but not).

New MkIII and MkIV Marines From Games Workshop

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 changed around. Same for the terminator suits. Well, if you’re looking to go “old school” with some of your figures, Games Workshop is taking orders for MkIII, MkIV, and some older style terminator guys over in their webshop.
Continue reading

New 40k Miniatures Available To Order From Games Workshop

Well, seems that the “home base” was getting a bit jealous of Forge World getting all the Primarchs to themselves. Games Workshop has started taking orders for several new miniatures, including Roboute Guilliman (or “Bobby” to his friends) who is part of a “Triumvirate of the Primarch” set. Or you can go with a big Deathwatch set. There’s also the new book, The Gathering Storm: Rise of the Primarch. All of them are available to order now.
Continue reading

New Contemptor-Achilles Dreadnaught For Legio Custodes Available From Forge World

Back when I was a custodian, the coolest things I thought we had were the big floor scrubbers or the portable, electric power washers. Space Marine Custodians get a lot cooler gear. One such piece is the Contemptor-Achilles Dreadnaught, available for pre-order from Forge World now.

New Imperial Fist Terminators From Forge World

With my love of giant robots, I’ve always loved Terminators in 40k. I know. I know. They’re a guy in a suit. But considering the suit-to-guy ratio there, they’re basically giant robots (I mean, Gundams are “a guy in a suit, too”). I’ve just always loved the way Terminators looked. If you’re a Terminator fan, like me, and you also like Imperial Fists, you’ll want to check out the new unit and bits available to order from Forge World.

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. Best we had was a couple gators (like, not actual alligators, but those 6-wheeled vehicles) back at the Arena. Ah well, you can order your Grav-carriers now from Forge World.

New Blood Bowl, 40k, Dice Available From Forge World

Forge World’s hitting a couple different bases with this latest set of releases. For you Blood Bowl fans, you can get one of the most famous star players, The Mighty Zug.

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. Those that love their Imperial Knights have some new heads to choose from, as well as some waterslide transfers. 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

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.

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.

Friday Snippets

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.

Today on the platter we have: New Tau Heavy Rail Cannon Array From Forge World, Iris Coming To Kickstarter in January, Purgatory Kickstarter is close to another stretch goal, New Mk IV tank From LaserCutCard, Two New APC Turrets Available From Kromlech, and Q’thulu Mini Up On Kickstarter.
