New Releases and Pre-Orders Available From Warlord Games

Yeah, that headline’s a bit vague. But Warlord Games did one of their “here’s a whoooooooooole ton of stuff!” releases. And so, either it’s put a whole bunch of their mixed games together, or have almost half of today’s posts just about the new stuff. There’s lots of new Viking/Saxon pieces for Hail Caesar. There’s a Test of Honour set. A new tank for Bolt Action. And a new drone for Beyond the Gates of Antares.

New Axemaidens for SAGA Available From Brother Vinni

Most of the time, the figures from Brother Vinni are system-agnostic. But, in this case, they’re for SAGA, the dark ages game of combat and might. They have released a new set of 4 Axemaidens. And I’m guessing they’re not just waving those axes because their Viking husbands forgot to take out the trash again.

New Ninja Sets Available For Test of Honour

Even though ninjas never really wrapped themselves in black like we see in pop culture (that was a kabuki theater thing. Ninjas dressed like everyone else so they didn’t stand out), it’s still fun to have ninja figures running around on our battlefields in their iconic look. Well, if you’re a Test of Honour player, you can grab a bunch of different ninja sets for the game. There’s a big set, a blister, and the Dojo Assault bundle.

New Normans Available To Order For Hail Caesar

I’m not sure how easy it would be to control an entire army where everyone is named Norman. I mean, you’d get into, “Hey! Norman! … No… the other Norman! … No, the other-other Norman!” … It’d soon turn into a Monty Python skit. Thankfully, the Normans weren’t actually all named Norman. I just wanted to make a terrible joke. Either way, there’s new Archers, Cavalry, and Heavy Infantry kits available to order from Warlord Games for Hail Caesar.

Warlord Games Previews 10th Anniversary LE Figure

Over the past week or two, I’ve been watching through my collection of Terry Gilliam movies. He is, easily, my favorite director, and his commentary tracks are always awesome. As such, it was just a couple days ago I saw, “Listen you stupid bastard, you’ve got no arms left!” “Yes I have!”
Well, if you head to Warlord Games’ 10th Anniversary celebration, you can pick up this figure and say that line over and over to your friends at the gaming shop (as if it’s not already said an average of 2.5 times per day at your shop, anyway).

Bandits and Brigands Available to Order For Test of Honour

In any society, there’s going to be those who don’t want to follow society’s rules and would rather just forge their own path. This often means taking from others, leading to a rough life of banditry. Certainly, there were those types in feudal Japan, and Warlord Games is letting you control your own outlaw group with their Bandits and Brigands sets for Test of Honour.

Friday Snippets

Friday is here! Gateway to the weekend that it is, I hope you’ve all got some sort of plans for gaming over the next couple days.

New Releases Available for Test of Honour

Warlord Games is bringing a new faction, as well as some new cavalry options to Test of Honour, their new far-Eastern miniatures skirmish game. The new faction is Ch?bei’s Renegades. They’re based on a real figure from Feudal Japan. Ch?bei is seen as a Robin Hood type of character, who would protect the peasants from bandits and wandering samurai who might wish to do them harm. The other new unit is the Daimy?’s Retinue, which gives new options for cavalry in the game. Rounding things off, to help keep everything straight, there’s new sets of tokens, as well as some scenery pieces.

New Pike & Shotte Releases Available From Warlord Games

One thing about Historical games is that you often get to play characters that were actual people and had actual lives. … I guess it’s a bit different if you play a young version of them and they get killed off in a fight… Ah well, that’s half the fun. Anyway, Warlord Games is expanding their Pike & Shotte line with some new Landsknecht units and a couple characters to lead them into battle.

Midweek Snippets

Well, this has been quite a week. Monday had the site down for reasons that are still not 100% identified (it blipped again a little earlier today, but was once more fixed by our outstanding IT guy, Lucas). Tuesday was busy playing catch-up. Plus, there’s been article-writing and such behind-the-scenes for other stuff around here. Just a busy week. I know I could use some extra energy. And I think a bunch of bite-size gaming stories can do that very thing.

Armageddon War: Armored Combat in the End War Up On Kickstarter

Most of us could see it coming. Corporations running amok. Diseases spreading through the land. Weather going all crazy. Society basically collapsed and there’s little left except those nations that hung on going to war with one-another over what resources are left.

Midweek Snippets

Amazing what a difference a week makes. Last week, I was lamenting how long it was all taking. This morning, I woke up and was like, “Whoah… it’s already Wednesday!” That certainly works for me. Faster to get to the weekend, the better. But if we’re going to be going along at this break-neck pace, we should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Monday Terrain Corner

It’s President’s Day here in the US and we’ve got the day off here at TGN Industries. So why am I making posts? Because the news doesn’t stop, and with all the announcements that’ve come in from various places, especially what’s going on in New York this past weekend, I can’t really afford to just sit on all that for an extra day.

Anyway, over the weekend I did get in most of a game of Guild Ball as I’d hoped. The game was called on account of lunch, unfortunately. But waddyagonnado? Well, download Vassal and maybe play some games online. But that’s beside the point.

As for right now, let’s get your gaming tables looking good.

In the Terrain Corner today we have: Heroic Maps Discover: Hollowild Gorge & Caves Map Now Available, Brigade Models Release Harbour defenses, Time Warp Printable Scenery Up On Kickstarter, Woodland: Pwork Wargames Gaming Mat Now Available, and Heroic Maps Foxtail Hills: Goblin Caves Available Now.

Review Roundup

Hey there, everyone. I hope you’re all having a great Saturday. I just got back from the grocery store (I’m typing this up a decent amount earlier than it is set to go live) so I can get ready to have some company over for a low-key Halloween party. I’m making cookies, chocolate-coated peanut butter balls, and gumbo. Should be a good time. I’m sure a lot of you have somewhat similar plans.

As for the moment, though, before I dive into a bit of last-minute cleaning and then work on cooking, let’s get you those gaming reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

This week we have: Bankers and Robbers, Dungeon Saga, Harry Potter Deck-Building Game, Conquest Games’ Medieval Archers, Mysterium, Aeon’s End, Love Letter: Premium Edition, Mortem Et Gloriam, The Networks, Eclipse: Shadow of the Rift, Tumult Royale, Necronomicards, Cthulhu Crusades, and Loony Quest.

Battle for Britain: Wargame 1066 Available From Warlord Games

The British Isles certainly have seen their fair share of conflict over the centuries. Seems everyone wanted that piece of land to call their own. Rather rich in various resources, it’s no wonder that armies have almost constantly been plundering it. Now you can recreate some of those conflicts with Battle for Britain: Wargame 1066. Using paper armies, this is a rather economical way to create really big battles.
