    Not normally TGN news fare but given their position in the industry it is interesting to see that Upper Deck has been found guilty of selling and distributing counterfeit Yu Gi Oh cards and may be hit with some serious fines.

    Matt Wilson has an interesting post on the Privateer Press forums about the changes made to the stats of several units after the last beta release.

    From their website:

    Forgive me for being out of the loop, I’ve had my head down in some other projects that are consuming all of my attention. Also, wading into the forums is kind of like trying to walk across ‘no man’s land’ between two opposing trenches. It’s not some place I relish going. Keep that in mind here and consider going easy on our staffers from time to time. They have to weather a lot of fire, some of it legitimate and rational, but a whole lot of it is bunk, trolling bull****, so they tend to get a bit defensive.

    I have not personally read any of the forum threads on this, so I’m still kind of getting up to speed. It’s come to my attention that some of our customers felt mislead by some specific ability and stat changes that occurred on a few models between the ‘locked’ PDF and the actual release of MkII. The most honest and forthright response I can offer you is that I am sorry that we mislead you. There was no intention to deceive and those changes that were made after the fact were not motivated by anything other than our continued fervor to perfect the game. How you view those changes may bias you towards agreeing with this statement, but I assure you that there was no duplicity in play here.

    Scibor Monstrous Monsters have sent along a preview photo of some work-in-progress Minotaur miniatures.

    WIP Minotaurs

    WIP Minotaurs

    From their announcement:

    3 days ago I saw pictures of new GW Minotaurs. I decided that I would like to try and sculpt my own vision of Minotaurs as dynamic and aggressive.

    I like my Minotaurs as they look like real creatures without crocodile tusks and with head and legs similar to real bulls. In my vision Minotaur is dangerous because he is strong, big and fast like bull.

    It is only 2 days of work and I will change some parts, other are unfinished, but I hope that overall conception is clear.

    More photos are available on their website.

    TRLRP.jpg

    From their announcement:

    Ironhalo has just released a new set of bases. We have made a new size of base to fit a gap in our range. This base is slightly larger than a 60mm round, but not so big as to overshadow the model. They are ideal for Attack bikes, larger models, and as an alternate flying base.

    We have made a generic version so you can create your own design and have also added a version to 12 of our current ranges, with the remaining coming soon.

    Here is one of my old attack bikes on the Generic base. All the bases can be seen on our online store.

    Games Workshop have announced the upcoming release of a new Blood Angels Codex for 40K.

    From their announcement:?

    This April the Blood Angels will be re-launched with an all-new Codex and range of plastic and metal miniatures. One of the oldest and noblest of all Space Marine Chapters, the Blood Angels have stood fast against the enemies of the Imperium since the Great Crusade and it was their Primarch Sanguinius, who laid down his life to aid the Emperor against Horus in the final hours of the Warmaster’s rebellion. The new Codex explores the background and history of these superhuman warriors like never before, and contains new artwork depicting some of their greatest battles and most powerful champions.

    The Blood Angels have always been a powerful close combat army and have been made even deadlier thanks to a range of specialist wargear, the ability to field Assault Squads as Troops choices, and more Dreadnoughts than any other Space Marine Chapter, including a Death Company Dreadnought and the fabled Furioso Dreadnought. The Sons of Sanguinius will be deep striking onto a tabletop near you this April – now’s the time to practice painting red.
