An army’s gotta have a leader. Otherwise, you just have an unruly mob. A highly-armed unruly mob. Way at the head of the Sigmaran army is the Celestant-Prime. This figure is now available to order from Games Workshop....

Looking at the scientific papers, you can see that humanity is getting ever-closer to true bionic people. Fully-functioning robotic arms and legs are becoming more common and more lifelike all the time. Though we’re not quite to the phase where people are doing this sort of stuff voluntarily. H...

Aaaaaand it’s Monday and we’re back in the office. Hopefully your job isn’t one where the above statement is a tragedy. You can always reminisce about the gaming that occurred over the weekend. You did get some gaming in, right? Hopefully you did. And hopefully if you were a minis g...

One of the downsides to buying online is having to factor in shipping costs to your order. Sure, the price may be reduced somewhat (in some cases), but when you tack on shipping costs, the final total can end up being more than if you’d just picked up an item at a store. Well, for […]...

The Sigmarites have been getting almost all the limelight since the release of Age of Sigmar. Well, you can’t have good without evil. Those Sigmarites have to fight against someone, right? … Ok, so yeah, they could fight against themselves, but where’s the fun in that? Well, Games W...

Forge World hasn’t had a fantasy release in quite some time. Now that Age of Sigmar is out, though, it seems they’re getting back into it. They have a new figure available to order. Granted… that dragon looks pretty familiar… but hey, you gotta start somewhere. For those that ...

Sometimes a single mortar tube doesn’t quite do it. That’s where things like the Nebelwerfer come in (it’s from WWII. Also, makes a good addition to a snowball fight. I.E. – “Every good snowball fight needs some werfed Nebels.“). In the grim dark of the 41st millen...

One interesting story I heard about while at Gen Con was the apparent deportation of the Games Workshop staff that’d come to town for the show. Apparently, when they said, “We’re here to work at Gen Con,” the customs official said, “Oh? Here to work? Where’s your w...

Warhammer 40khas always had various cards and extras to pay attention to during a game. I remember hidden objectives from back in the 2nd edition days. Plus, there were the various tactical cards to deal with as well. Even though I’ve not really kept up with 40k, apparently they’ve kept u...

Back here in the office after Gen Con. Hopefully you, too, are getting back into the regular swing of things. I know I could use another day or so to rest, but the news doesn’t stop and that means I can’t, either. For example, there’s a new set of Paladins available to pre-order fro...

Everyone likes to personalize their army, but not everyone wants to have to green stuff their own special torsos, helmets, or shoulder pads. That’s where Forge World steps in with their upgrade kits. In this case, if you’ve got a White Scars force and you want to add a little flair to you...

Age of Sigmar seems to be getting an overall positive response. No, it’s not for everyone. But it seems just about all my friends have ended up with at least a starter set. That includes players who haven’t really played much in the way of Games Workshop games before. Well, a new set of t...

Forge World continues their Horus Heresy character line with a trio of new figures this week. They are happy to bring you Zardu Layak and the Anakatis Kul Blade-slaves (that’s quite a mouthful). Zardu was once an ardent believer in the Imperium and how it was the greatest thing since sliced bre...

Well, kids, the time has come. It’s our review of Games Workshop’s Age of Sigmar. Let’s get right to it, shal we? The first miniatures game I played was Warhammer 40k. My LGS in St. Louis (The Fantasy Shop, St. Charles, for any of you that might know of it) had a demo of 2nd [&helli...

Did anyone else’s weekend just fly by? Heck, all of last week seemed to just rocket by. I usually end up with the same checkout clerk at the grocery store, since I go fairly early on Saturdays and there’s only a couple lanes open. I remember saying, “… didn’t we just do ...

Not too long ago, it was announced that Total War, the popular video game of military combat, was getting a Warhammer version. People were pretty excited, and rightly so. Well, they’ve now posted up an in-engine trailer for the game, and we figured you’d like to see it. Check it out below...

Continuing their Horus Heresy Character Series, Forge World has started taking orders for Cor’bax Utterblight, Demon Prince of the Runestorm. This isn’t your standard “guy in power armor” sort of model. No. This is a new Nurgle miniature in all its pustule-ridden glory. With t...

Over the weekend, I assembled my Age of Sigmar starter set that was sent to me. Simply being the gamer that I am, looking over the various warscrolls, I found myself immediately starting to think about what I would want in order to expand on the forces. Granted, my immediate plans didn’t really...

Forge World once more expands their Primarchs line with Perturabo, the Primarch of the Iron Warriors. This one certainly has the feel of a Primarch to it, with some rather specialized armor and weaponry on the figure. Sure, it still looks like Terminator armor, but, at least to me, it looks like it&#...

We’ve had the Age of Sigmar rules for a couple days now. It seems to be dividing the gaming community pretty heavily. Some aren’t very happy with the new rules, while others thing it brings back some of the “campy fun” of Games Workshop days gone by. Well, for those that like ...

Well, we’re getting close to the new version of Warhammer Fantasy Battles from Games Workshop. There’s been lots of rumors and half-heard things being passed along for quite a while. Well, you know that we here at TGN don’t deal in rumors. That’s a disservice to you, the reade...

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 ...
