Associate Editor Enrico Nardini pulls out a pernicious problem present in Games Workshop’s latest press announcement. See what has him piqued! There are times when I feel like Games Workshop is in a position where they can do no right. 2014 did show improvement in some areas. Did you ever think you w...

Forge World has a trio of new releases up for pre-order on their website. The first is the next in their line of Horus Heresy characters. Sevatar was the First Captain of the Night Lords. Rather nasty fellow, it would seem. Next up are a new Imperial Fist Legion Command. You get a banner bearer [&hel...

Forge World has started taking orders for their new Deredeo Pattern Dreadnaught and the first couple weapon systems for it. I know I’ve lamented the look of some of Forge World’s dreadnaughts before, but this one I like. Granted, I think it’s because it reminds me of Mechwarrior (ki...

Games Workshop and Crooz Inc., have a new, free, video game app that you can download and play. This one’s The Horus Heresy: Drop Assault. Seems GW’s really letting the IP fly in terms of video games lately. I’ve been making a lot of announcements of this sort recently. Though, as t...

TGN Associate Editor Enrico Nardini speculates on the rumors of dynamic change in the world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles. Yep. It’s a cliched title. Sue me. If there is one thing Games Workshop (GW) fans have been conditioned to accept (much like victims of Stockholm Syndrome), it’s recei...

Forge World has begun taking orders for their new Castellax-class Battle-Automata (no modern kitchen is complete without it!) over in their webshop. I must say, I like the look of the Mechanicum line (I won’t be starting an army any time soon, but I do like the way they look, at least). It̵...
