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 ...

Just about every day I see someone posting about the new Blood Bowl set. I really have been meaning to pick it up. I’ve just never gotten the chance. Perhaps this weekend. We’ll see. If you do have it and are looking to add a new Star Player to your lineup, Forge World has one […]...

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...

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 Tzeent...

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!...

Seems Forge World is continuing on with their Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit releases this week. Last time we got some dwarves. This time we go for something a bit bigger. There’s a new pair of Gundabad Ogres available to order. You can get them as a pair, singles, or as part of a unit […]...

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 ...

That could be the forces of Chaos. That could just be a disgruntled employee down at the local coffee shop. That means there ...

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 [&h...
