Well, this is interesting. Many of you that know LGS owners know that there’s some… tension at times between shop owners and Games Workshop. That usually has to deal with required ordering numbers and minimum purchases and such. Well, one shop owner has decided that the way it’s don...

As usual for a Friday, Forge World has a new model in their webshop that you can order. This time around, it’s Gabriel Angelos, Master of the Blood Ravens. I honestly know nothing about the Blood Ravens. I just know that the mini’s pretty cool-looking with a big-ass hammer....

Forge World once again has two far ends of the spectrum available to order from this week. For you 40k (or, I guess, technically, 30k) fans, they’re expanding their Horus Heresy Characters range with Magistus Amon of the Thousand Sons Legion. Meanwhile, on the Blood Bowl pitches, Skaven players...

I’ve got a lot of friends that’ve picked up the new 8th edition of 40k. They all seem to be enjoying it. Mostly, they seem to like the new Primaris Space Marines. Well, as disciplined and such as those guys are, they still need strong and capable leaders to get the job done. Thankfully, G...

Many times I have shown my envy at the Custodians of the 40k universe. There are certainly times I’ve had to go into a bathroom to clean it and wish I had dreadnought armor to protect me. For those really big jobs, the Legio Custodes have the Telemon Dreadnoughts. You can order yours now from [...

Well, it’s been almost a week. So, I’m sure all of you are all extremely tired of 40k already and want to play something else… I’m kidding. But if that actually is the case, and you want to play some The Hobbit, well, Forge World has some new figures you can order for the game...

It goes without saying that Games Workshop has been making miniatures for quite a long time now. Many sculpts have come and gone, thought to be never seen again. Well, occasionally, they’ll grab some molds from a bygone time and whip up some figures if you ask them nicely. For Blood Bowl coache...

It was hard to decide which item to feature here for this latest set of releases from Forge World. They didn’t have anything last week, but they’ve certainly made up for it this week. There’s a new version of the famous Thunderhawk Gunship, a pair of new Imperial Armour books, and a...

Continuing their Primarchs Series, Forge World is now taking orders for Magnus the Red. As usual, he’s available in several forms. You can get him on his own, with a retinue of troops, or as a diorama set along with Leman Russ (the primarch, not the tank)....

You know, as I’ve gone on in my gaming career, I’ve more-and-more found myself drawn to skirmish games. Not that I think there’s anything inherently bad or wrong with large-army games. They’re just not really for me, anymore. So when I see that Games Workshop has started takin...

Whether you’re on the fields of Middle Earth or on some planet far off from Terra, nobody likes having to walk to battle. Better to get someone or something else to deliver you to the action. I.E. – Drive closer so I can hit them with my sword! Well, that’s what Forge World has for ...

I was over at the LGS the other day, picking up some minis, and happened to watch several games of Age of Sigmar. One guy was using the new Kharadron Overlords. I have to admit, steampunk-style dwarves are pretty cool. If you’ve got a force, or are thinking of starting one, Games Workshop’...
