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...

Good times, Saturday. As you read this, I’m hanging out at a Gundam Model Build day at a shop on the South Side of town. After that will hopefully be some Guild Ball. I’ve already had my tacos lingua. But as you’re here for a review roundup, let’s get you a review roundup. Tod...

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....

Games Workshop has been rolling out the specialist games one after the other lately. Since the announcement that they were going to be expanding that range, we’ve had Betrayal at Calth, which was Marines vs. Marines. Then there was Deathwatch: Overkill, which gave us Marines vs. Tyranids. And now we ...

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...

A friend of mine used to be in the Marines. He served overseas for a couple years. While there, they’d still go on regular training missions. One of them involved having to get from one place to another out in the desert. Well, unfortunately, the guy holding the compass was doing so right next to [&h...

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 […]...

A lot of people that play Warhammer 40k play Space Marines. They’re the iconic army of not just the game but of the entire universe. So it only seems appropriate. Well, with all those players, people are going to want to differentiate themselves from one-another, and the various Codices that ex...
