Announce Your Age of Sigmar Army With New Pre-Orders From Games Workshop

Historically, armies weren’t really known for their stealth. A couple thousand soldiers marching together, with trumpets, drums, banners, and all other sort of kit doesn’t generally go unnoticed by others. In fact, they’d make it a point to stand out. Maybe by putting on a big, flashy show, the enemy would surrender, or at least not fight as well because of intimidation. Well, now your Sigmarite forces for Age of Sigmar can get some of that pomp and circumstance.

New Age of Sigmar Pre-Orders Available from Games Workshop

You are the wind beneath my wings!
And you’d need a lot of wind to keep these guys airborn. And I’m not sure how aerodynamic those wings that they have really are. There’s not a lot of surface area. Oh well, I’m sure a wizard did it. Anyway, several new airborn troops are available to pre-order from Games Workshop for the Sigmaraite faction.
Just be careful, or you’ll be singing, “Take… these broken wings!…”

The Sigmarites have been getting almost all the limelight since the release of Age of Sigmar. Well, you can’t have good without evil.

Age of Sigmar seems to be getting an overall positive response. No, it’s not for everyone. But it seems just about all my friends have ended up with at least a starter set. That includes players who haven’t really played much in the way of Games Workshop games before.
Well, a new set of troopers is available to pre-order. This one will let your opponents fight in the shade.

A New Age for Games Workshop: A Review of Age of Sigmar

Well, kids, the time has come. It’s our review of Games Workshop’s Age of Sigmar. Let’s get right to it, shal we?

The first miniatures game I played was Warhammer 40k. My LGS in St. Louis (The Fantasy Shop, St. Charles, for any of you that might know of it) had a demo of 2nd Edition’s two-player starter set up. My friend Jared and I, who frequented the store in order to play the Star Wars CCG from Decipher had always walked by it, and occasionally looked at it, on our way to the card gaming tables. One day we tried it out. We liked it, so we split a box. That started a roughly 10-year period where 40k was my main game of choice. I stopped just as 4th edition was coming out. During those years, I never played Warhammer Fantasy Battles, but I certainly watched plenty of games of it. Back in those days, at the Shop, it was just as popular as 40k. So I’d watch giant formations of High Elves and Lizardmen in their nice, neat regiments duel it out on the tabletops. Fast-forward all these years and now Games Workshop (GW) has taken Warhammer Fantasy Battles (WHFB) and come out with something new. WHFB is no more. Now there is just Age of Sigmar.

Terrain Corner

Did anyone else’s weekend just fly by? Heck, all of last week seemed to just rocket by. I usually end up with the same checkout clerk at the grocery store, since I go fairly early on Saturdays and there’s only a couple lanes open. I remember saying, “… didn’t we just do this?” Her week had gone by pretty fast, too. So it wasn’t just me.
But whether or not it’s gone by in an instant, or leisurely strolled its way by, we’ve made it once again to Monday.
… yay?

Well, one thing we can celebrate is a good-looking gaming table. That’s what this post is all about. It’s today’s Terrain Corner.

In this batch we have: Acheson Creations Releases the Alpine Trench Section #4, New Heroic Maps: Wardenhale Public Spaces Released, Games Workshop Taking Orders for New Age of Sigmar Terrain, Novus Design 28mm Medieval Range Now Available, ProMatz – The worlds first customizable industrial grade gaming mat on Kickstarter, and ModelEarth posts latest terrain releases.

New Age of Sigmar pre-orders available from Games Workshop

Over the weekend, I assembled my Age of Sigmar starter set that was sent to me. Simply being the gamer that I am, looking over the various warscrolls, I found myself immediately starting to think about what I would want in order to expand on the forces. Granted, my immediate plans didn’t really have “buy grand Age of Sigmar forces,” I simply couldn’t help at least hypothesizing about what sort of things I’d add. Well, if I were to expand, Games Workshop’s put up some new stuff for pre-order that might be up my alley.

Some aren’t very happy with the new rules, while others thing it brings back some of the “campy fun” of Games Workshop days gone by.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Rules and Warscrolls Posted

Well, it’s the 4th of July and Britain has sent the US a present. That being Games Workshop has posted up the rules for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar on their website, for free, along with all the Warscrolls (I.E. – the unit rules) for all the armies. I’ve mentioned recently how game companies are more and more embracing the “free rules online” method, so you can see how a game works before you buy it. Well, Games Workshop has jumped into that bandwagon. What do you all think?

Some New Information about New Edition of Warhammer Fantasy

Well, we’re getting close to the new version of Warhammer Fantasy Battles from Games Workshop. There’s been lots of rumors and half-heard things being passed along for quite a while. Well, you know that we here at TGN don’t deal in rumors. That’s a disservice to you, the readers. These, however, aren’t so much rumors anymore. It does look like Warhammer is getting more of a reboot than anyone might’ve expected.

One Week Left to Make Salute Pre-Orders from Forge World

Forge World will be one of the many vendors headed to Salute, the UK’s premier gaming convention. They want to make sure that if you want to buy something from them that they’ll have it on hand (because nobody likes going away disappointed and empty-handed). So to make sure they have what you want, they’re taking pre-orders for the next week. Just tell them what you want and they’ll bring it with them to pick up at the show.

Skarr Bloodwrath Added To Warhammer Pre-Orders

Games Workshop added a new hero to their pre-order page for Warhammer. Well, anti-hero is probably more like it, unless you think that the slaughter of your enemies in the name of your insatiable god makes you a hero. It’s all about perspective, I guess. Anyway, I’m getting off track. You can order Skarr Bloodwrath now.

TGN Editorial – Press Announcement Pique

Associate Editor Enrico Nardini pulls out a pernicious problem present in Games Workshop’s latest press announcement. See what has him piqued!

tgn-editorial_360

There are times when I feel like Games Workshop is in a position where they can do no right. 2014 did show improvement in some areas. Did you ever think you would see bundle deals that had an actual and meaningful discount? How about new starter sets that once again, could be considered a value for your gaming dollar (including units you might actually want to purchase)? Yet, in the age of the $25+ single figure blister, it’s hard to not think that there are still systemic issues in GW’s attitude and business model that may be causing their continuing profit backslide.

TGN Feature – It’s the End of the Old World as We Know It

TGN Associate Editor Enrico Nardini speculates on the rumors of dynamic change in the world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles.

tgn-feature_360

Yep. It’s a cliched title. Sue me. If there is one thing Games Workshop (GW) fans have been conditioned to accept (much like victims of Stockholm Syndrome), it’s receiving news of upcoming releases via leaks and rumors. It’s so pervasive now that , as a conspiratorially minded individual, I often wonder if this pattern of rumor, leaked photos, and eventual confirmation isn’t a calculated marketing ploy to generate buzz. Sure, sites posting rumors and leaked images shut down on occasion, victims of GW’s legal team. But, couldn’t that be done to keep up appearances. Karl Franz doth protest too much, methinks.

Rumor Mill: Big Shakeup to Warhammer Fantasy

Games Workshop’s rumor mill is running hot and heavy with speculation about the upcoming 9th edition. Much of it revolves around the losing of certain factions as well as the creation of new ones (sounds like there might be a “Space-Marine-Esque” one coming). Also, rumor has it that the world, itself, is exploding. Gone is the old map we’ve known for so long. Instead, each portion will be its own “bubble universe” that occasionally bash together and create a place where various factions can battle.

What’re your thoughts? I know these are rumors still, but they’re supposedly from fairly reliable sources.

Eeek! A Rat!

Games Workshop starts off this new year with a new pre-order for all your Warhammer Fantasy players. This one’s the new Verminlord.
It’s… $90. That’s… a lot.
It’s a pretty nice looking model, though, and does come with accessories.
But… $90.
I know I try and keep the editorializing to a general minimum, but … wow.

TGN Feature – Games Workshop’s new APPeal to Customers

TGN’s Enrico Nardini takes a look at Games Workshop’s latest digital marketing push: Warhammer: The App.

tgn-feature_360

Games Workshop is combating their stock exchange woes with an aggressive implementation of new strategies. We have seen a number of bundle deals on miniatures that actually represent a net savings on the per model cost (almost unheard of in recent memory), the rerelease of popular IP (such as Space Hulk), and an aggressive release schedule providing consumers with a plethora of product options. The latest attempt to “right the ship” comes in the form of a new app (application) for the iPhone.
