Free Nations Live Launch Weekend Starts Tomorrow

Time Zones are a funny thing. When it’s an hour or two, it’s just kinda like, “yeah, whatever.” But then you hit that point where there’s people already in tomorrow when you’re still in today. As Battlefront is over in New Zealand, they’re well ahead of those of us in the US and UK, and are often in the next day when many of us are just getting going with our regular routine. This means that they’ll begin their Live Launch Weekend for Free Nations tomorrow (well, tomorrow for most of us, 2 days from now for them, which is still just tomorrow, but… You know what, never mind. Just go to their site, damnit).

Fantasy Flight Previews 1.4 FD Laser Cannon And E-Web Blaster For Star Wars: Legion

The Battle of Hoth scenes in Star Wars introduced a lot of new elements to the universe. In the opening salvos, we saw the Rebels defending their base using the 1.4 FD Laser Cannon (even as its shot did basically hit an AT-AT in the knee and seemingly do nothing at all). It then blows up. Then, a little later, when the Falcon is trying to take off, we see the Imperials setting up their E-Web blaster. Again, this gets blown away before it really has a chance to do anything. Well, hopefully their on-screen appearances are not indicative of what they’ll do on your Star Wars: Legion battlefields.

Privateer Press Previews New Warmachine/Hordes Releases

As the temperature continues to rise here in Atlanta, I know I wish it was actually getting closer to winter. Granted, I’m not sure I want a winter like a Khador winter (because Khador winter don’t stop), but they also have giant Man-o-War suits to keep them warm. Also used to those Khador winters is the Legion of Everblight, since they hail from the same region of Immoren. Privateer has posted up previews of a bunch of new Men-o-War units, as well as one more Legion preview for you.

Fantasy Flight Previews Baron Zachareth For Runewars

The kingdoms of man are fighting against elves, undead, and demon-creatures from the wastes. In these times, some morals are lost, or at least, past deeds are glossed over. Such is the case of Baron Zachareth. To some, a saint. To others, a demon (though different from the demon-creatures). Either way, he’s coming to the tabletop for Runewars.

Bolt Action has been Warlord Games’ flagship game for quite some time now. And a mainstay of the game is the average, American G.I.

Games Workshop Taking Pre-Orders For Imperial Knights Codex

Onna-bugeisha of Asakura Available to Pre-Order For Test of Honour

Fantasy Flight Previews Spined Threshers for Runewars

The Runewars previews just keep a-comin’. This time around, we get a look at the Spined Threshers. I mean, I certainly wouldn’t mind some extra mouths. Though having such long tongues right near all those sharp teeth and pinching claws seems like a recipe for a bitten tongue.

Color Quest Alpha Game Up On Game On Tabletop

A company that you’ve seen pop up on here for a long time is Fluo Craft. Their Color Wars universe is one I looked at back in a review many years ago.

Well, they’re back with Color Quest Alpha, their new miniatures skirmish game set in that same universe. The game is up on Game On Tabletop (a crowdfunding site, in case you didn’t know. We don’t get many campaigns from there).

Warlord Games Releases Infanterie schlepper UE (f) mit wurfrahmen For Bolt Action

The Germans, early in the war, had quite a lot of successes out on the field where they were able to grab enemy arms and armaments.

German commanders in Bolt Action can now at it to their forces, too.
