Seems Forge World is continuing on with their Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit releases this week. Last time we got some dwarves. This time we go for something a bit bigger. There’s a new pair of Gundabad Ogres available to order. You can get them as a pair, singles, or as part of a unit […]...

We’ve got a little bit of everything from Forge World today. For those that are Lord of the Rings fans, there’s a new Hill Dwarf Unit and Command. Those that love their Imperial Knights have some new heads to choose from, as well as some waterslide transfers. Finally, if you’re want...

Two rather opposite ends of the spectrum for the couple releases available from Forge World this week. But, if you’re a fan of really big models, you’re in for a treat. That’s because they have the new Acastus Knight Porphyrion as well as a new Bloodthirster....

A bit of a scatter-shot set of new releases from Forge World this week. There’s some new pieces for Blood Bowl. You’ve got some new bits for your 40k armies. And there’s a new unit for The Hobbit. Pretty much all we’re missing is an Age of Sigmar release....

While playing Guild Ball and cooking Thanksgiving 2: Thank Harder, I missed the new Legio Custodes tank release from Forge World. Well, I’m here to rectify that, as well as tell you about the new Horus Heresy book collections they’ve got for order....

Even if you’re a heavily-modified Mechanicum trooper or officer, walking your way across open terrain in battle is a great way to get yourself a one-way ticket to seeing the Emperor in the afterlife. As such, the Macrocarid Explorators were designed as a transport, command vehicle, and heavy we...

Time has been playing weird tricks this week, I feel. The first several days flew by. Thursday took an eternity. Now, today’s doing a little bit of both. I feel like it should be later than it is, so it feels like it’s been a long time since this morning… but I’ve also gotten ...

Well, sort of two ends of the spectrum in terms of new releases from Forge World this week. It’s rare enough that we see even releases for Age of Sigmar on there. But a Lord of the Rings release? I can’t remember the last one of those. Along with some new dwarves, there’s also a [&h...

Games Workshop has started taking orders for a new board game set during the days of the Horus Heresy. This time, we find the voracious Space Wolves against the magic and psycher-enhanced Thousand Sons. The battle for the 31st millennium heats up once more as the planet is bombarded, except for one a...

I know how much people tend to love getting “limited edition” versions of things. They feel special and unique. There’s only maybe a couple out there and you want to get one for yourself. Well, starting tomorrow, Forge World will have a new, limited edition Space Marine mini that yo...

We’ve once more made it to the weekend. Well, almost to the weekend, anyway. We’ve still gotta finish today. But hopefully that won’t be too painful to get through. Then… Yeah, I just love weekends. And as I’ve mentioned a couple times, tomorrow’s going to be cram-...

Much of the time, Forge World focuses on the sci-fi half of Games Workshop’s catalog. We get new marine transports or some new Primarch. But this week they’re heading to the Age of Sigmar side of things. Now, I didn’t know that there were cyclopian lizard-men in the world, but I kno...

While the US in WWII had to rely on just dropping troops out of a plane, the Empire of Man has a bit of extra technological advantage in order to land squads of marines. That comes in the form of the Sokar Pattern Stormbird. They’ll get your Marines to the battlefield in style and with [&hellip...

Friiiiiiidaaaaaaay! The gateway to the weekend. Hopefully you’ve got some gaming planned for the next couple days. I don’t have anything specific lined up, but there’s still plenty of time. At the very least, I’m thinking I want to make some brownies this weekend. Though I mig...

The work week is drawing to a close. … … … Wooo! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy some gaming. Tomorrow’s the monthly gaming day at my friend’s library, where I’ll be getting a couple games in. Hopefully you have roughly similar plans. If I’m going to make...

Seems just about everything is going on this weekend. PAX, Nova Open, and Dragon*Con are all happening… well, right now, actually. If you’re at one of the shows, awesome. I hope you’re having a blast. If you’re not, well, at least we still have Friday going for us, which is ni...

The worst way to try and get your troops into battle is just having them walk there. Tac. Marines, Terminators, and Dreadnaughts aren’t known for breaking any land speed records, and they’re vulnerable to enemy fire as they approach. Sure, there’s Rhinos and Land Raiders, but those ...

Ah, the Tactical Marine. The Swiss Army Knife of the 40k world. Pretty much every Space Marine player, as well as quite a few Chaos players, will have a couple units of them around. But with all those players using basically all the same figures, what’s to keep them apart? Well, Forge World is ...

Dun na-na-nun na-na-nun na-na-nun na-na-naaa-naaa, Barracuda! Even if you’re not a fan of classic rock, you might be a fan of taking out your enemies from up in the sky. Or maybe you just want some giant robots (we all know my thoughts on giant robots). The new Barracuda flier and a set of R...

It’s been a while since Forge World has gone for the Fantasy side of things. Usually, we’re getting new Horus Heresy characters or giant robots (not that I mind giant robots, of course). But this time around, they’ve got something new to order for Age of Sigmar. They’ve got a ...

The Mechanicum are not generally known for their assault units. They’re just happy to sit back and lob plasma blasts and other various ordinance at their foes. But that’s not to say they don’t have units designed to run into enemy formations and just start shredding stuff up. That&#...

Forge World’s got quite a bit going on today with their pre-releases. There’s a new Horus Heresy character available. You can get him both as a single and as a two-pack. Then, to make sure your mini looks nice, there’s a couple paint kits as well as some transfer sheets available....

When rules get released for armies, they can sometimes be spread out across a couple publications. Or, at the very least, you can have different publications that each have a different army in them. Carrying around all those books can get tedious, so the folks over at Forge World have consolidated th...

When it comes to giant robots, it’s tough to get bigger than the Warlord Titans from 40k. Being Games Workshop, there’s plenty of options in how you outfit your titans. But there’s not always an actual piece to use for that. Well, Forge World is helping out with a new Titan head, as...

All good things must come to an end. In order to make room for new figures in their warehouse, the folks over at Forge World have decided to discontinue making certain other items. These pieces are never going to be made again. So if you want any of them, you’d better hurry....

Gamers are a competitive lot. It’s sort of there right in the name. If you’re gaming, you want to win. Even casual gamers, such as myself, still want to do well and hopefully win the games we’re playing. That extends out to adding colored goop to your minis. For those who are intere...

Battlefield medics have a very rough job (putting it mildly). Everyone out there is looking to tear each-other to shreds. They’re looking to put people back together again. Solar Auxilia Surgeon-Primus Aevos Jovan was a great surgeon before some of his “experiments” were discovered ...

Though my main force back when I played 40k was Orks, after a while I kinda wanted an army that had an armor save, so I bought some Dark Angels, because I still wanted something green, apparently. But then I realized I missed melee. So I went with some Space Wolves for a while. Since […]...

Forge World was busy trying to give away a set of Titans. Chances are you didn’t win one. It’s ok. I know I didn’t win one, either. But if you find yourself in the position that your 40k opponent did win one (or you just want a gigantic gun on tracks on your side of […]...
