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...

Blood for the Blood God! Just about every gamer knows that call. It means the champions of Khorne are out looking to revel in the glory of slaughter and kill in the name of their chaotic god. Khorne’s elite champions are called Gorechosen and have spilled much blood and taken may skulls in the ...

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...

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 ...

We all know that I love gaming. I’m sure you all here do, too (otherwise, this is really an odd website to have on your surfing list). I’m sure most of you, like me, also like helping others. The people that run the NOVA Open certainly love helping others. That’s why they’re a...

It’s hot outside, folks. Be sure you’re drinking plenty of water and getting in from out of the heat for a while. And to even add more to cooling off, why not imagine you’re on some wind-swept, snowy plane? Games Workshop is here to help with that last bit by taking pre-orders for t...

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 ...

Games Workshop has a tendency to sometimes post rules for similar armies, or new units for similar armies, across a wide range of publications. As such, it can sometimes be tough trying to play those armies, as you’ve gotta carry around a bunch of books and flip through all those pages to find ...

They are the Sylvaneth. They speak for the trees. Mostly because a lot of them are trees. Or, at least, they’re partially-trees. You know, dryads and other things like that. And they’re certainly marching to war with a whole bunch of new releases over in the Games Workshop webshop....

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&#...

One of my favorite models I’ve put together in a long time was the DakkaJet from Games Workshop. When I saw one at my LGS when it came out, I picked one up immediately, even though I didn’t play 40k at the time. I still have the model, even though it’s currently the only 40k [&helli...

Some board games can seem a bit intimidating in terms of “moving parts” for it. And while they might really be all that complicated, having a digital version that does some of the bookkeeping for you is pretty handy. Such is the case with the digital version of Talisman. There’s als...

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...
