Review Roundup

Ah, Saturday.
Don’t know about you, but I’m going to be putting together a pair of Guild Ball players (Granite and Veteran Siren) that Ray picked up for me at LVO. Then I’m gonna make my own protein bars (like Clif bars, for those that know about them) since I’m trying to get from the 110 stone that I currently am down to maybe an even 100. I also finished watching Black Books, so I need to find something else to watch. But that’s as may be. What you all want right now are reviews. Let’s get those to you.

Today we have: Multiuniversum, Multiuniversum: Project Cthulhu, Hero Realms, Hero Realms Character Packs, The Mountains Rise, Legends of Andor: Journey to the North, Band Manager: Backstage Clash, Age of Sigmar, Imhotep, Cavern Tavern, Superhot, Forged in Steel, The Civilized Guide to Tabletop Gaming, Pirate Lords, and Steel Arena.

New Tzeentch Models Available To Order From Games Workshop

The forces of Chaos are relentless in their war against the mortal realms. They have vowed to not stop until the world all around them matches their home of twisting, shifting, changing landscapes. There’s one group that excels in twisting reality to their whim. They are the followers of Tzeentch, and they’re getting a bunch of reinforcements for Age of Sigmar.

New Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Spire of Dawn Box Set Available

This time of year, there’s lots of talk about elves helping out in Santa’s workshop. There’s also talk of rats, if you’re a fan of ballet. So it seems fitting that Games Workshop would be releasing a new box set for Age of Sigmar that features their versions of elves and rats (those being Aelfs and Skaven, respectively). You can get your orders in for the Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Spire of Dawn box set now.

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.

Fimirach Noble and Warriors Available To Order From Forge World

Much of the time, Forge World focuses on the sci-fi half of Games Workshop’s catalog. We get new marine transports or some new Primarch. But this week they’re heading to the Age of Sigmar side of things. Now, I didn’t know that there were cyclopian lizard-men in the world, but I know now. They’re the Firmirach.

Games Workshop Releasing Gorechosen Arena Combat Game

Blood for the Blood God!
Just about every gamer knows that call. It means the champions of Khorne are out looking to revel in the glory of slaughter and kill in the name of their chaotic god. Khorne’s elite champions are called Gorechosen and have spilled much blood and taken may skulls in the name of Khorne. But if it’s mighty skulls that bring the most glory to Khorne, than the skull of a Gorechosen must be one of the best, right? The Gorechosen certainly think so, and so they have decided to see which of them is the strongest. That’s the story behind Gorechosen, a new arena combat game from Games Workshop releasing tomorrow.

Beastclaw Raiders Available to Pre-order For Age of Sigmar From Games Workshop

It’s hot outside, folks. Be sure you’re drinking plenty of water and getting in from out of the heat for a while. And to even add more to cooling off, why not imagine you’re on some wind-swept, snowy plane? Games Workshop is here to help with that last bit by taking pre-orders for their new Beastclaw Raiders.
Continue reading

New Bull Centaurs Available To Order From Forge World

It’s been a while since Forge World has gone for the Fantasy side of things. Usually, we’re getting new Horus Heresy characters or giant robots (not that I mind giant robots, of course). But this time around, they’ve got something new to order for Age of Sigmar. They’ve got a new Bull Centaur unit as well as Shar’tor the Executioner character.

New Sylvaneth And General’s Handbook Available For Age of Sigmar

They are the Sylvaneth. They speak for the trees.
Mostly because a lot of them are trees. Or, at least, they’re partially-trees. You know, dryads and other things like that. And they’re certainly marching to war with a whole bunch of new releases over in the Games Workshop webshop.

Sunday Snippets

Well… you know that Battle Chef I talked about a couple times last week?
Uh… you see… wha-ha-happen wuz… Crits from ogre-sized lizardmen hurt, y’all.
But this is just an opportunity to create a new character. I’m thinking I’m gonna go with a TV-preacher style Cleric. We’ll see how it goes.

Anyway, before I dig into rolling up a new character, let’s dig into some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: Brigade Models Releases New Merchant Spaceships, Last hours to support Saltlands post-apocalyptic desert adventure game on Kickstarter, and New Bases and Paints Available to order from Games Workshop.

Total War: Warhammer Now Available

Ok, so I know the vast majority of you are probably playing Overwatch right now. That’s cool. That’s cool. I don’t blame you. But for those that prefer something a bit more fantasy as opposed to sci-fi, Total War: Warhammer is now available.

Games Workshop Announces Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower

New Flesh-eater Courts Battletome Available to Order from Games Workshop

I know a lot of people for whom Halloween is a year-round thing. Well, Games Workshop isn’t waiting for the time of year for ghouls and ghosts to start taking orders for their new Battletome which, coincidentally, is full of ghouls and other things that go “bump” in the night. And along with the book, there’s various sets you can order as well.

New Orks Available To Order For Age of Sigmar From Games Workshop

Orks! Orks! Orks! Orks!
Back at my old LGS in St. Louis, they’d hold quarterly used gaming auctions. The miniatures day ones always ran long. I remember it being 3am or so, with still plenty of items yet to go, Dave (the auctioneer and owner of the shop) would just hold up some Orks and everyone would start chanting, “Orks! Orks! Orks!” over and over. Wild times. Well, these new Orks aren’t available in the used gaming auction yet. They’re available for pre-order from Games Workshop’s site.

Games Workshop Taking Orders For The Realmgate Wars: Godbeasts Book For Age of Sigmar

Seems that J.K. Rowling isn’t the only one that can create a book of beasts set in their setting. Ok, so Godbeasts isn’t just a book of monsters, but is a new supplement for Age of Sigmar that has a bunch of new things inside it for the game. But still, it was the first thing I thought of when I saw the title.

New Chaos Models Available To Pre-order For Age of Sigmar

New Age of Sigmar Pre-Orders Available From Games Workshop

The Stormcast Eternals are, basically, the “Good guys” in Age of Sigmar. They’re the main force who is fighting against the seemingly endless hordes of Chaos that look to sow… well… chaos everywhere, bringing… umm… chaos across the planes.

Forge World Taking Orders for Skaarac The Bloodborn for Age of Sigmar

Well, it’s been a while since we’ve gotten something from the fantasy side of Forge World. Most of their releases tend to focus more on the sci-fi side of things. But such is not the case today. Age of Sigmar is getting a new mini in the form of Skaarac the Bloodborn. And he’s certainly been eating his Wheaties, as he’s a big boy.

New Dwarf Pre-Orders Available From Games Workshop

While I know most of the country is colder than it is here in Atlanta, that’s not to say that it’s not cold here in Atlanta. People are looking for ways to keep warm. I’m guessing, though, if everyone had themselves a giant dragon-thing named a Magmadroth, we’d be able to stay nice and toasty. Well, Magmadroths don’t exist in the real world, at least, not as a real thing. They exist in the world as model kits, and you can order yours from Games Workshop now.
Continue reading

New Dwarfs Available to Order for Age of Sigmar

Any my axe!
And My axe!
and my Axe!
And My AXE!
Well, let’s just say that if you feel your Age of Sigmar forces are lacking in axes, now is the time you can remedy that by getting some new Dwarf miniatures that are available for pre-orders over in the Games Workshop webshop.

New Starter Sets Available for 40k And Age of Sigmar From Games Workshop

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 equivalent?
Well, Games Workshop is here to help with their new “Start Collecting” forces for both Warhammer 40k and Age of Sigmar.

Games Workshop Taking Orders For New Gaunt Summoner

How many of you out there have seen Pan’s Labyrinth? Let’s see a show of hands. *raises hand*
Now, how many of you instantly started thinking of that one creature who had its eyes in the middle of its hands? *raises hand*
How many of you, just now, put your hands in front of your face, mimicking that motion? *puts hands in front of face* *cleans off glasses*
Well, it’s not exactly the same, but when I first saw this new Gaunt Summoner from Games Workshop, that’s what I thought of.
Continue reading

New Varanguard Available to Order From Games Workshop

The force of Chaos are getting themselves some more tools to spread their ideologies across the land in Age of Sigmar. As big as he might be, the Everchosen of Archaon can’t do everything himself. So he’s getting himself some swift-hooved helpers in the form of the Varanguard.

Games Workshop Taking Pre-orders for Seraphon Book for Age of Sigmar

Well, Age of Sigmar is changing a bit more terminology. You can do that sort of thing when the universe explodes and you get to make a new one. So the Lizardmen are no more. However, in their place are the Seraphon. They even use the same models and everything. Though some of the names there, too, have been changed (to protect the innocent?). Anyway, the new book for the army is available to pre-order from the GW webshop.

Games Workshop Taking Orders for Skarbrand

So, what sort of monstrosity do you think you would need to have in order to control chaos? Well, for Age of Sigmar, you’d need some sort of hulking brute who would just pick up and throw any dissenters towards the enemy. Perhaps someone with a really huge axe and even a braided beard that you could whip someone with. You might be thinking just a Bloodthirster. But really, you would need Skarbrand.
