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....

I mean, it’s the Underworld. You can’t really expect there not to be undead running around all over the place. And such will be the case, as a new undead faction will be coming to Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire. Check out the preview video below the cut....

The work week continues along. We’re halfway home (“home” in this case being the weekend, of course). If we’ve made it this far, there’s a good chance we’ll make it the rest of the way. But just to make sure, we should bulk up on some bite-size gaming stories. Toda...

With a library of miniatures going back literally decades, Games Workshop couldn’t realistically keep everything they’ve ever made in stock. That’d be ridiculous. But since they aren’t made regularly, some older pieces can be really hard to find. Well, occasionally, GW will di...

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&...

Blood for the blood god! Even if you’re not a regular GW-player, there’s a good chance you know that call to arms. Khorne, the Chaos god, is fairly well known for the battle cry of his followers. And those followers are getting bolstered in Age of Sigmar by a new Battletome and set of War...

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)....

On just about every Blood Bowl team, you’ll have “the big guy.” You know, that one player who literally towers above the rest, daring the opponent’s players to try and tackle them. For many, that “big guy” comes in the form of a Troll, and Games Workshop has starte...

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 Worl...

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 t...

The Hobbit is getting a couple more releases over on Forge World’s website. It’s two ends of the scale this week. You’ve got the industrious but short dwarves. And you’ve got the nearly-mindless and rather monstrous trolls. So, whether you want little-smashy or big-smashy, the...

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 ...

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 cha...

Forge World is once more letting you expand your Blood Bowl rosters. This time, it’s the Skaven that are getting some love in the form of their Rat Ogre (you’re gonna need a bigger mouse trap). And an old fan favorite once more returns to the pitch. Griff Oberwald has a new figure that yo...

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 o...

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....

Just the other day I got the new Blood Bowl box set and put it together. It’s been funny to see how the models have gotten bigger over the years. I know there’s even more extreme examples out there. So if you’ve got yourself an Ogre for your team, your older figures might not be [&h...

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 Ter...

Games Workshop has been expanding out their board game lines as of late. But other than maybe some special shoulder pads or something, none have really gotten big, full expansions. That’s not the case anymore, as Warhammer Quest is getting the Shadows over Hammerhal. There’s also some new...

The Stormcast Eternals are getting a bunch of new releases over on the Games Workshop website. These defenders of order versus the seemingly unending waves of Chaos are getting a new Order Battletome book as well as 7 new units. That includes the Gryph-Hounds, who look like they just want to be pette...

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 ...

The situation in the galaxy in the 41st millennium is certainly in flux right now. The Gathering Storm series is showing that new things are afoot and it might actually have some lasting impacts on the story. The next book, Fracture of Biel-Tan, is up for pre-order now, along with some new minis to g...

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 ord...

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!...
