DreamForge-Games Two new releases and a crazy good Memorial day sale

Been a while since we heard from the DreamForge-Games crew. But that doesn’t mean they’ve been sitting around doing nothing. They’d taken back over distribution of their products and that can be quite a busy time. They’ve also got a pair of new figures available. Plus, they’re having themselves a sale this weekend.

The Gang’s All Here: A Review of the Valkir Heavy Troopers Set

Well, I’ve had a review of a Leviathan (and then the evil Leviathan), an APC, two different heavy troopers squads, but that still only came out to 13 total models. Time to bulk up my numbers a bit. So I’m going to more than double the number of figures I’ve got put together by assembling a Valkir Heavy Troopers box.

The kind folks at DreamForge-Games once again supplied me with a set.

So I hope you brought enough gum for everybody, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time it’s the Valkir Heavy Troopers box set from DreamForge-Games.

What a Big Sword You Have: A Review of the Valkir Assault Troopers

Well, we had a review of the “Battery” (meaning a grouping of artillery weapons), we should probably have a review of the Assault as well. It seems only fitting. As such, I’m here with another of the plastic kits from DreamForge. This time around it’s the Valkir Assault Troops.

As before, DreamForge was kind enough to send me a box to let you know about.

Bring Out the Big Guns: A Review of the Valkir Support Weapons Unit

I’ve always been a fan of “heavy weapons units.” The Lootas for my Orks would always have lascannons and plasmacannons and all that sort of stuff. Obviously, my Dark Angels would have Devastator squads all armed up with the big guns. Well, DreamForge has their own heavy weapons unit for the Valkir.

They sent me a box and I’ve put them together and am here now to tell you about it.

So grab an extra belt of ammo, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time it’s the Valkir Support Weapon Squad from DreamForge Games.

They See Me Rollin’: A Review of the Eisenkern APC From DreamForge-Games

One of my first review projects ever for TGN is still one of my favorites. DreamForge-Games had recently come out with their Leviathan Crusader and I got one for my very own to assemble. I eventually named him Friday in honor of the day I put him together. Later on he would get an arch-nemesis in the form of Monday. Well, DreamForge hasn’t only made Leviathans, they’ve made other kits as well. Today I’m here to take a look at the Eisenkern ‘Keilerkopf’ APC.

DreamForge-Games Previews Eisenkern Command Squad

DreamForge-Games has their Eisenkern troopers boxes available, but a trooper without good leadership is not going to be anywhere near as effective. As such, they’re coming out with their new Eisenkern Command Squad set. But it’s not just command, there’s other additions to your possible Eisenkern units that are also in this box set.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

It’s Saturday! Hope you’re getting in some gaming. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m currently getting my arm repeatedly jabbed and ink permanently applied to it. It’s fun!… Really!…
Actually, it’s not so bad, honestly.
And I’m sort of a wimp when it comes to needles. So if I can do it, you can, too (if you want).

But anyway, as usual, we’ve got our regular feature of collecting all the review articles we found all week and have them here for you now.

Included this week are reviews/previews of: Eggs and Empires, Meteor, Summoners Wars Aliiances Master Set, Dreamforge Valkir Assault Troopers, D&D Miniatures Ancient Silver Dragon, New Mars Attacks Terrain Sprues, March of the Ants, Bill Shakespeare Is Dead, Lords and Ladies, Find my Monsters, and Ion.

DreamForge-Games: Eisenkern Panzerjäger – 10 Female Tank Hunters

DreamForge-Games is showing off the artwork and renders for their Eisenkern Panzerjager Female Tank Hunters unit they’re working on.

Source

From the preview:

All of the components can be used with the male Stormtroopers, so you can mix your squads and equipment. The original intent was to make a specific squad, the Black Widows. It seemed appropriate to use this opportunity to create a military Special Forces branch that could represent not only the Black Widows but Special Forces within the Eisenkern faction.

DreamForge-Games posts Box art renders for the Eisenkern APC and the Thor

DreamForge-Games has new renders posted that they’re gonna use for the boxes for the vehicles.
I can’t wait for these things to come out.

From the website:

Just some eye candy for the upcoming releases.

The Eisenkern Keilerkopf (Boars head) APC.
The Eisenkern Thor (Stuka Zu Fuss)
We are still shooting for a November 2014 release for all stage 3 Kickstarter items, just keep an eye on the blog and I will post an exact date when it is available.

DreamForge-Games previews Valkir Heavy Troopers and a peek at the Eisenkern StuG

DreamForge-Games gives us a look at the Valkir Heavy Troopers box as well as a preview of the Eisenkern StuG mini they’ve been working on.

Source

From the post:

I chose to render the box art with the rear skirt only option ‘Hoth style’ as I felt it helped differentiate them from the Assault and Support Valkir in appearance. This image also débuts the Eisenkern StuG, this version is the grav assist but there is also a tracked version for you tread heads. (More on that in another update).

DreamForge-Games posts Valkir Support Trooper Preview

DreamForge-Games continues their Valkir previews, this time with a look at the Support Trooper unit.
I still want these guys.

From the preview:

When the Valkir need some extra muscle, they call on the Valkir Support squads to do the heavy lifting.

From the post:

Today I had an opportunity to assemble a five man Valkir Assault Squad. My apologies for the out of focus guns on a few images but my camera skills are wanting. I think I will try manual focus next time and see where that gets me.

Enjoy!

DreamForge-Games previews assembled Valkir Assault Trooper

DreamForge-Games posted up some photos of their first preview of the Valkir Assault Trooper minis they’ve been working on.
I might have to get a squad to stand guard around Friday on my desk.

Preview Valkir Assault Trooper

From the post:

In the last update I showed you shots of the sprues that China kindly provided me.

This afternoon I received A few copies of the T1 shots and dove right in. This was the first figure I assembled because I have a test print available for comparisons. It went together with no fussing and I can honestly say it is better than my dusty test print.

I was so pleased with the early T1 that I needed to take some shots and post an update.

Valkir Assault and Support Trooper Sprue Shots posted by DreamForge-Games

DreamForge-Games is showing off some preview shots of the Valkir Assault and Support Trooper sprues they’re working on.
I need to get a squad of these guys to run around Friday and attack Monday.
They’re also having a sale in their webshop this weekend.

Valkir Assault Troopers

From the post:

I am very happy to show you some previews of the Heavy Trooper ‘Valkir Assault’ and ‘Valkir Support’ sprues. These are T1, so there will be some cleanup and adjustments made before they are production ready.

Wargames Factory China is sending me some T1’s for assembly so I hope to have some shots late next week of some assembled Valkir heavies.

The 20 man Valkir set is still in milling. The APC add-on kits, the Command Squad and the female Stormtroopers are still in engineering for mold split.

Big update from DreamForge Games

DreamForge Games posted up a big update on their progress with new models. They’ve got 3D renders of Heavy Support troops, female troopers and some painted shots of their APC.

From the preview:

Today I have the great pleasure of sharing with all of you the Keilerkopf Eisenkern APC. This kit is the first DreamForge product to take physical form without ever having been produced in either metal or resin.

I am also excited to preview the Command Squad set for the Eisenkern Stormtroopers.

Eisenkern APC/Gun Carriage Zeus and Loki renders previewed

DreamForge-Games is showing off some new renders of their Zeus and Loki armored troop carriers.

Source

From the preview:

Here we have the Eisenkern APC variant Zeus and Loki.
Zeus the god of thunder is a fitting name for the APC equipped with a large caliber siege gun.
The second variant, named after Loki the god of mischief seems equally apropos.

This kit was offered to the Kickstarter backers and I am pleases to say the Loki variant will be included in the Zeus APC kit.

Estimated release Q2 2014

Knights vs. Leviathans

Pins of War is wondering which you guys prefer, the new Games Workshop Knights or the Leviathans from DreamForge Games.
I know which one I prefer. *looks on desk*

Source

From the article:

Ever since word got out, that Games Workshop was doing a plastic kit for an Imperial Knight, debates have raged on whether gamers should opt for the model from GW themselves, or opt instead for a surprisingly fitting alternative, the Leviathan Crusader from DreamForge.

Time for … a poll!

Leviathan blowout happening now

DreamForge Games is offering both their 28mm and 15mm scale Leviathans at a special price over in their webshop.
My two are more than just models, they’re treasured possessions.

From the sales sheet:

I am running a deep discount sale on the Leviathan Crusader; 15mm and 28mm through February 28th
The 28mm scale Crusader $75.00
The 15mm scale Crusader $33.00
* The additional weapons arms for this kit are expected in Q2 of this year.

DreamForge Eisenkern Valkir Preview

DreamForge-Games has a bunch of 3D render previews up for their upcoming Valkir units as well as various weapon options.

Source

From the preview:

Estimated retail release Q2 2014

When we last saw the Valkir, they were nothing more than a base concept. I knew I wanted power armor troops for the Eisenkern faction that represented the mid-point of advancement through the Eisenkern Ranks. A soldier that was superior but still very much a part of the core army, unlike the Knightly households ‘Ritterorden’ which operate with much more autonomy, where you find the Assault Troopers and Support Troopers.

DreamForge-Games previews renders for Stuka Zu Fuss armored vehicle upgrade kit

DreamForge-Games is showing off some 3D renders of their Stuka Zu Fuss upgrade for their APC.

Source

From the preview:

Q2 2014 anticipated release

Primarily an anti-infantry or anti structure weapon. It can fire six extremely large high explosive or incendiary charges. Spin stabilized, the rockets are not as accurate as conventional artillery and reloading is time consuming due to the rocket’s weight. Rockets are ripple-fired in large numbers where feasible to quickly saturate a target.

TGN Review: Leviathan Mortis from DreamForge-Games

DreamForge-Games is still a growing company, and if they keep making kits like this, they’re going to be a force to be reckoned with in the very near future. Putting together a Leviathan Crusader earlier this year left me with a feeling of being on top of the world. I felt like a spaceship was going to land and tell me I was The Last Starfighter. But I knew another challenge would come calling: The Leviathan Mortis. The yin to the Crusader’s yang… or is it hang to the Crusader’s yin? … Anyway, I knew it was coming and I was ready. But an extra challenge was thrown at me along the way. Would I survive? Would my sanity remain… intact isn’t the right word since I’m not totally here to begin with, but… now I’m rambling. Read-on and check out the assembly photos as I put my new Leviathan Mortis (named Monday, as he is the sworn enemy of Friday, the name of my Crusader) together.

As before, there’s a video down at the bottom showing off the movement capabilities of the model.

So let’s dive into another TGN review with assembly of the Leviathan Mortis from DreamForge-Games!

DreamForge Games previews Eisenkern Assault Troopers renders

DreamForge-Games is showing off the renders for the new Eisenkern Assault Troopers they’ve been working on.
Stay tuned for more DreamForge-Games news this evening with the final look at the Leviathan Mortis I’ve been working on all week.

Source

From the preview:

First on the list if the Eisenkern Assault Troopers. This will be a five man box set and like our Stormtroopers, they are of multipart, posable miniatures. In the next sneak peek I will go over the box contents and give some insight as to the customization and options that will be provided with this set.

DreamForge-Games previews Heavy Assault Trooper model

DreamForge-Games is showing off the first print of their Heavy Assault Trooper.
Personally: I love how they look. It’s like the armor from FFXII.

Source

From the preview:

Here are some shots of an Assault Trooper, warts and all. I did not spend much time cleaning up the print because it was not going to be used as a master, just to test fit components such as the shoulders, tasset and tabard; so there are some very rough spots on the outside of the shoulders, the sword blade edge and a few other places where the built lattice was attached.

DreamForge-Games website gets facelift, opens webshop, will hold Cyber Monday sale

DreamForge-Games has updated the look of their website and opened up a new webshop. They’ll also be holding a Cyber Monday sale there. Go get some sci-fi minis.

Source

From the update:

www.dreamforge-games.com just got a major face lift… and product. Yeah that’s right for the first time in a few years… things you can buy ;P I know, strange right?

It has been a very long time since I had a workable storefront. I have relied on the freeware shopping carts to get things done but sadly I am no HTML expert and it was sorely neglected.

This time around I went with a much more user friendly back end and a snazzy theme with all the bells and whistles. You should be able to view and use this site on your phone or PDA, which is a huge improvement over the old website.

I hope you enjoy the look and feel as much as I do, so stop in, pick up some plastic crack and have a look around.
