Well, it’s been a while since we’ve gotten something from the fantasy side of Forge World. Most of their releases tend to focus more on the sci-fi side of things. But such is not the case today. Age of Sigmar is getting a new mini in the form of Skaarac the Bloodborn. And he’s certa...

Once more Forge World has new ways that you can customize your Space Marine miniatures. This time around, if you’re wanting to play Alpha Legion, or if you’ve been itching for some more options for your Cataphractii terminators, you’ll want to see what they’ve got available fo...

As many people that play 40k know, a lot of people play some form of Space Marines. It makes sense since there’s numerous chapters, even before you get into Chaos and the various marines that they can put on the battlefield. So making your army stand out from your buddy’s army can be a bi...

Forge World is making it easy to pick up some of their collections over on their website by bundling together some popular items and offering them at a single price. Makes it a lot easier to just click a couple buttons and order like-items than to have to hunt around for each one individually. Also, ...

Fly like an eagle… into the fuuuutuuuuuuure! Though eagles don’t tend to need jetpacks to get around, and in the grim darkness of the future there is only war. But either way, there’s a bunch of new releases over at Forge World that you can put in orders for. Well, it’s a coup...

With all the Space Marine chapters out there, lots of players can play “the same army” but have wildly different backstories for their forces. Thankfully, a Space Marine model is pretty modular. There’s a lot of bits you can swap out to easily distinguish your chapter from your frie...

Sometimes you just need a gun so big it needs its own set of tank treads to move it around. Sometimes, even one set of tank treads isn’t enough. You need multiple sets of tracks in order to get that thing around. Well, the Mechanicum Ordinatus Ulator is one such beast of a weapon....

Yes, a story today that’s not just a sale. Well, I mean, something if for-sale, but it’s not necessarily on-sale, if you know what I mean. I mean, you can go and buy it, but there’s no special sort of dis… oh nevermind, here’s a new mini from Forge World you can go order...

I’m fairly equal-opportunity when it comes to liking giant robots. Lately we’ve been getting them for both humans and Tau from Games workshop (as well as a few other companies. Well, robots for humans, anyway. I don’t think any other companies have put out Tau robots recently). Well...

Well, the Betrayal at Calth set seems to be getting a lot of attention, as one would expect. Heck, I spent much of Saturday morning typing about it. Unfortunately, as I was feeling rather under the weather yesterday, I didn’t get a chance to put the rest of the set together. That’ll be ev...

I have to say, the look of various Games Workshop/Forge World models sometimes leaves me scratching my head. I tend to not really like it when things are overly-flashy or models are in really awkward poses. Neither of those are the case with the new Solar Auxilia Veletaris Storm Section unit thatR...

As Forge World continues their track away from giant Tau robots, they continue to work their way toward the Ravensguard new releases. This time they’ve got the Mor Deytahn Strike Squad as well as some new waterslide transfers. This is the “one shot, one kill” sniper squad in full po...

Programs! Programs! Can’t tell a Knight from a Day without a program! Love that joke. Anyway, Forge World is stepping away from giving you new Tau giant robots to give you an Imperial giant robot. Seems legit. They’ve started taking orders for their new Cerastus Knight-Atrapos over in the...

Forge World isn’t letting just the main GW site get all the fun of releasing new, giant Tau battle suits. They have started taking orders for the new KX139 Ta’unar Supremacy Armor. They come with Fusion Eradictors, but it’s up to you to decide if you want to get the Tri-Axis Ion Can...

And we’ve arrived. Friday. Such a great feeling. The weekend is just ahead with all the possibilities that it brings. I hope you’ve got some gaming lined up for yours. It is the perfect time for such things, after all. Friday also brings us a new batch of bite-sized stories. This group in...

Long-time readers will know I’m a big fan of large minis. Titans, Gargantuans, Leviathans, Huge Dragons, I love them all. 40k has a couple really big minis as part of the game, the most iconic of which are the Titans. Forge World has started taking orders for their new Mars-Alpha Pattern Warlor...

Recently we’ve had some stories about anime-related items and some mecha games, well, Forge World is taking orders for a new Tau release for 40k, and as usual, it has some anime stylings as part of it. I could certainly see Shinji crying like a little girl and not wanting to pilot it, anyway. S...

Everyone likes to have their army stand out from the rest. Using a different paint job than the standard is one way to do it, but so does using different, ornamental bits to create your figures. Forge World is here to help out with that second thing. This time it’s for Blood Angels players....

Looking at the scientific papers, you can see that humanity is getting ever-closer to true bionic people. Fully-functioning robotic arms and legs are becoming more common and more lifelike all the time. Though we’re not quite to the phase where people are doing this sort of stuff voluntarily. H...

One of the downsides to buying online is having to factor in shipping costs to your order. Sure, the price may be reduced somewhat (in some cases), but when you tack on shipping costs, the final total can end up being more than if you’d just picked up an item at a store. Well, for […]...

Forge World hasn’t had a fantasy release in quite some time. Now that Age of Sigmar is out, though, it seems they’re getting back into it. They have a new figure available to order. Granted… that dragon looks pretty familiar… but hey, you gotta start somewhere. For those that ...

Forge World is your source for premium Games Workshop bits. If you want to customize you army, they’ve got you covered with new torsos, shoulder pads, weapons, heads, tank bits, and more. You probably know all that. What you might not’ve known is that they got themselves a facelift over i...

Sometimes a single mortar tube doesn’t quite do it. That’s where things like the Nebelwerfer come in (it’s from WWII. Also, makes a good addition to a snowball fight. I.E. – “Every good snowball fight needs some werfed Nebels.“). In the grim dark of the 41st millen...

Everyone likes to personalize their army, but not everyone wants to have to green stuff their own special torsos, helmets, or shoulder pads. That’s where Forge World steps in with their upgrade kits. In this case, if you’ve got a White Scars force and you want to add a little flair to you...

Forge World continues their Horus Heresy character line with a trio of new figures this week. They are happy to bring you Zardu Layak and the Anakatis Kul Blade-slaves (that’s quite a mouthful). Zardu was once an ardent believer in the Imperium and how it was the greatest thing since sliced bre...

Forge World once more expands their Primarchs line with Perturabo, the Primarch of the Iron Warriors. This one certainly has the feel of a Primarch to it, with some rather specialized armor and weaponry on the figure. Sure, it still looks like Terminator armor, but, at least to me, it looks like it&#...

Since ancient times, Mars has been the Bringer of War. And for those of you music aficionados out there, one of Holst’s best works (love me some 5/4 time goodness!). Well, Forge World is really bringing the war with this new release. They’ve started taking orders for the Mars Pattern Warl...

Primarchs. They are a triumph of genetic engineering. They are paragons amongst an already-impressive group (the Space Marines). They are unmatched in combat, with only other Primarchs able to stand against them (unless you’ve got an army or fleet or two to throw at them). For the Ultramarines ...

Sometimes an Imperial Fist is just an Imperial Fist. But that’s not the case with Sigismund. As the First Captain of the Imperial Fists, his ability in battle matches all but the original Primarchs. His Black Sword has bested an innumerable list of adversaries. He plans on adding all of the Tra...

It’s hard to think that, since it’s June, technically, Gen Con is next month. Yeah. How much of a shock was that to your system? I’m still just sort of letting it process. But yeah, Gen Con starts July 30th this year. Forge World will be in attendance and they want to make sure you ...
