Classic Blood Bowl Teams Returning For 1 Week Only

It goes without saying that Games Workshop has been making miniatures for quite a long time now. Many sculpts have come and gone, thought to be never seen again. Well, occasionally, they’ll grab some molds from a bygone time and whip up some figures if you ask them nicely. For Blood Bowl coaches, there’s some classic teams that will be available next week, for one week only, that you can special-order.

New Blood Bowl, 40k Bundles Available To Order From Forge World

Forge World is hitting two ends of the timeline spectrum this week with their releases. On one side, they’re in the far off and mythical past of Blood Bowl with some new goblin secret weapon figures, plus a new pitch to play on, as well as bundling those in with teams and the base box game. On the other side, with the release of the new edition of 40k coming out tomorrow, they’ve created a bunch of different bundles for some of their figures for the various factions, along with the Imperial Armour books to go along with them, available individually or together in a set.

Review Roundup

I know. I know. This was supposed to go up yesterday.
Well, WordPress has been flaky lately and it missed its posting window. Hence why it’s going up now with a reworded opening talking about it not being posted on Saturday instead of saying, “I’m going to the LGS and gonna pick me up a Minx for Guild Ball!”

But anyway, without any further delay, today we have: Great Western Trail, Click Click Boom, Radiant, Potion Explosion: The Fifth Element expansion, Rone: Races of New Earth, Legendary Showdown, Pocket Madness, Quadropolis, Rocky Road a la Mode, Race for the Galaxy iOS, Warhammer 40k: 8th Edition, Warhammer 40k: Dark Imperium, Port Royal, Flying Kiwis, and Magic Maze.

It was hard to decide which item to feature here for this latest set of releases from Forge World. They didn’t have anything last week, but they’ve certainly made up for it this week.

New Edition of Warhammer 40k Available For Pre-Order

By now, I’m sure you’ve probably heard about it. I mean, we mentioned it last week. But there’s a new edition of Warhammer 40k available to pre-order from Games Workshop. 8th Edition brings familiar mechanics that you’ve seen before with some new twists and ways to put forces together, along with some new minis, to give you a new gaming feel.

Continuing their Primarchs Series, Forge World is now taking orders for Magnus the Red. As usual, he’s available in several forms. You can get him on his own, with a retinue of troops, or as a diorama set along with Leman Russ (the primarch, not the tank).

Games Workshop Taking Pre-Orders For Age Of Sigmar: Skirmish

You know, as I’ve gone on in my gaming career, I’ve more-and-more found myself drawn to skirmish games. Not that I think there’s anything inherently bad or wrong with large-army games. They’re just not really for me, anymore. So when I see that Games Workshop has started taking orders for a new skirmish form of Age of Sigmar, I take notice. Along with the book, they’re also taking orders for various warbands.

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.

Blood Bowl Season 2 Available For Pre-Order

The new season of Blood Bowl is now available to order from Games Workshop. If you were hoping for some of the teams from the older version of the game that weren’t there in the latest version (for example, Lizardmen for me), you’ll be happy to see that they’re here, as well as some new teams, as well as expanded league rules, updated general rules, and more.

New Ratlings Available to Order from Forge World

Some people see rats as pests. Others see them as pets. Still others see them as a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield or pitch. That last group are Ratling players. They should be excited about a new Star Player for Blood Bowl and a Verminlord for Age of Sigmar being available to order from Forge World.

New Kharadron Overlords Available To Order From Games Workshop

I was over at the LGS the other day, picking up some minis, and happened to watch several games of Age of Sigmar. One guy was using the new Kharadron Overlords. I have to admit, steampunk-style dwarves are pretty cool. If you’ve got a force, or are thinking of starting one, Games Workshop’s got a couple new sets of figures available to order.

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.
Continue reading

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 Kharadron Overlords Available To Order From Games Workshop

You know, when you normally think of dwarves, you think of them down in some mountain keep somewhere. You might not think to look up and see them floating overhead. But that’s just what they’re doing in Age of Sigmar, and you can order the new Kharadron Overlords airship, along with some other items for them over in Games Workshop’s webshop.

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

New Undead Faction Announced For Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire

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.

Games Workshop Taking Orders For Old Blood Bowl Teams

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 dive into the vault and come back out with some models they’re willing to spin up for you. And that’s just what they’re doing now with certain Blood Bowl teams and players.

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 Khorne Battletome Available To Order From Games Workshop

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 Warscrolls.

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).
Continue reading

New Blood Bowl, Modelling Supplies Available to Order From Games Workshop

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 started taking orders for a new one over on their website. They’ve also got a pack of Special Play cards, plus a bunch of hobby tools with which you can put your team together.

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.

Warhammer Community Posts About Shadespire Coming From Games Workshop

Well, seems Adepticon is getting a bit of announcements coming out of it. This one’s about Shadespire, a new Age of Sigmar-based miniatures board game coming from Games Workshop later this year. Warhammer Community has some preview shots of it up.

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.
Continue reading

New Dwarves and Trolls Available To Order For The Hobbit From Forge World

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, they’ve got something for you.

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.
