New 40k Kits Available To Order From Games Workshop

Cold and Flu season is coming, and by that, I mean that the forces of Nurgle are amassing and will soon be spreading their virulent pestilence all across the galaxy. … Best stock up on orange juice, Kleenex, and Baneblades.

New Death Korps of Krieg Sets Available to Order From Forge World

One of the more-popular Imperial Guard groups is the Death Korps of Krieg. I’ve always loved how they look, with their trench coats and gas masks. It’s a very WWI-feel to me, which I think is awesome, since I think that war gets overlooked a lot more than it should. Anyway, there’s some new units, some new cavalry, and several new artillery companies available to order for your 40k games from Forge World.

New Transports Available to Order From Forge World

I tend to repeat myself around here. It’s just in my nature, really (you should hear my dad tell the same story a dozen times). Two things I’ve often said is that walking to battle is for suckers. Also, the Legio Custodes have some of the best janitorial equipment I’ve ever seen. This post combines the two, as they are getting a new Assault Dropship. There’s also the Imperial Arvus Lighter. It’s a transport ship, too. Not something to light your cigarettes (and whiskey and wild, wild women… Whoah, got off on a tangent there). Both of these are available to order now from Forge World

Trust me, I’ve come across many, many, many things in those previous jobs that made me go, “Kill it with fire!!!” *shudders at the memory of coming across a trashcan that’d been missed when closing down the football field at the end of the year, only to be rediscovered next summer when we were cleaning up for the start of the next season* Anyway, you can order your Legio Custodes Aquilon Terminators with Infernus Firepikes now.

Review Roundup

Usually, I’m all like, “hey! It’s Saturday! Go get your gaming on!” and, in a way, I’m still that. But I’m also, “It’s the Saturday before Gen Con… … … I Have So Many Things I Still Need To Do!!!” A couple people have asked me, “are you ready for the show?” My answer is, “you’re never ‘ready’ for Gen Con. You’re where you are in your attempt to be ready, and then the show starts happening, whether you got all you needed done or not.” But I am doing my best to have as much done as possible. That includes getting you your reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

This week we have: Nerdy Inventions, Incantris, Anachrony, Lucky Dogs, Wordsy, Deckscape: Test Time, A Dog’s Life, Titan Tactics, Frantic, Have at Thee, Upon a Fable, Sopio, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Shadow War: Armageddon, Massive Darkness, Oh My Goods, Nimbee, Pandemic Legacy Season 1, and The Lost Expedition.
