While much of the focus over the weekend was on the fantasy size of Games Workshop, Forge World was working away at a new figure that you can add for your 40k armies. They’re now taking orders for their new Kytan Daemon Engines over in their webshop....

Customizing Space Marines… It’s a pretty popular thing to do. After all, there are so many different chapters out there, all with different rules of some form, that distinguishing one from another can be tough. A squad of Tac. Marines could be used just about anywhere as they are, but if ...

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...

I like green. It’s my favorite color. A nice dark green of an ivy leaf after a morning storm… *wistful sigh* Wait, what happened? I floated away there for a moment. Anyway, back when I played 40k, my two factions were Orks and Dark Angels (so I didn’t have to keep track of as many [...

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 ...

Don’t you know the Dewey Decimal System!?! One thing about 40k that sometimes isn’t focused on as much, is that it really does bring in some fairly diverse concepts to the game. Amongst the starships and laser guns and space elves and whatnot, you’ve also got powerful psychics that ...

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...

Sometimes a bolt pistol won’t cut it. Neither will a bolt gun. Sure, it essentially fires out little rockets, but they’re little rockets. Sometimes you just need a weapon that can put a hole the size of manhole cover in even the thickest armor and then cause whatever you just shot at to e...

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 ...

Space Marines are the elite troopers of the Empire of Man in the grimdark future of 40k. These heavily-genetically-modified warriors (who can spit acid, and have a couple different hearts, just for starters), stand ready to protect the Empire from the forces of any aliens that may be around, as well ...

Games Workshop has started taking pre-orders for some new Cult of Mechanicus units over in their webshop, as well as bundling some of the products together. And, since having the rules for the units is generally a good idea, they’ve got the new codex up for pre-order as well. As per usual, they...

An airbrush is a great way to quickly and efficiently coat several models at a time. It’s also really good for getting very smooth gradients between different colors. I’m… not allowed to use an airbrush. … At least, not after what happened last time I tried to use one… *...

Rolling across the battlefield on tank treads instead of legs, and essentially devoid of anything left that makes them human (except for a few scraps of flesh over some metal frames… which makes me wonder why bother with that bit anyway, but I’m not a Tech Priest), the Battle Servitors wa...

Forge World is here to help you upgrade your marines with some more personality. Sure, they might be known as “Vanilla” marines in many circles, but that doesn’t mean your Ultramarines need to look generic. As such, there are two new torso/head upgrade sets, as well as a set of new ...
