Two ends of the spectrum available to pre-order from Forge World this week. On one hand, you've got a pair of Necromunda figures, Apollus Kage & Krotus Hark, to add to your gangs. On the others, there's two Middle-earth kits in the form of Ruffian Leaders and Will Whitfoot & Baldo Tulpenny. So, if you like sci-fi gangs or fantasy Hobbits, you've got some options.
I know, a really generic headline, but when it comes to typing out all the different things that are available to pre-order this week from Games Workshop, it'd either be a really short headline that gets you to read on, or a large amount of the story would just be up in said headline. Anyway, Games Workshop has a ton of stuff up for pre-order right now. Arguably, the two biggest are the new Battletome: Sylvaneth and Scouring of the Shire books for Age of Sigmar and the Middle-arth Strategy Battle Game, respectively. There's also new figures for both those games, a new elven Blood Bowl team, new sets for Adeptus Titanicus, 40k, and pretty much everything else you can think of. There's terrain. There's dice. There's... I mean, I told you it was a lot of stuff.
Big pre-order week for Games Workshop this week. Primarily, they've got the 2019 General's Handbook for Age of Sigmar. Those that want to be up-to-date with the rules will want to check it out. There's also a host of Lord of the Rings releases, including Radagast the Brown. Finally, the latest issue of White Dwarf is available to order. And, right there on the cover, a white dwarf. Seems fitting.
All fantasy miniatures for you to pre-order this week from Forge World. Though it's not all the same brand of fantasy. We've got the mounted and unmounted version of Deorwine, Chief of the King's Knights for Lord of the Rings/Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game/The Hobbit. Then, over on the fantasy sports side of things in Blood Bowl, there's Deeproot Strongarm, star player treeman, and a pair of referee figures.
There's just a ton of stuff over in Games Workshop's pre-order page right now. Some of it is still from last week, including the various Chaos figures they had. But there's also plenty of new things, like new Nightvault expansions, a whole bunch of figures for the Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game, and some returning items that are getting another release, like a book for said Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game and Adeptus Titanicus.
Quick one for you today from Forge World. Their latest pre-release figure is Elfhelm (who is neither an elf nor a helmet, but what's in a name, anyway?), a captain of Rohan that you can add to your forces. He's available both on foot as well as on horseback, because who wants to walk to battle, anyway?
For those that have seen the various Hobbit movies, you know about the epic battle between Thorin Oakenshield and Azog. For those that haven't seen the various Hobbit movies... here's a cool dwarf and orc set for you to add to your collection. Orders are being taken now over at Forge World for these two to add to your Middle Earth tabletops.
A shotgun of new pre-orders this week from Forge World. There's new Orcs for your Blood Bowl teams. There's new new House Cawdor weapon packs for Necromunda. And there's Denethor and Irolas for the Lord of the Rings. So, Fantasy Sports, Sci-fi skirmish, and fantasy army game. It's a little for everyone.
Really going for two ends of the spectrum here with this week's set of pre-orders from Games Workshop. On one hand, you have Giant Robot Alert in the form of new kits for Adeptus Titanicus. On the other side, there's a whole lot of stuff for The Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game, including new Gandalf and Theoden kits, plus a new book, as well as a whole host of units.
The glittering white city, Minas Tirith, has many who protect it from all foes. In this set, Húrin and Ingold can be added to your ranks. The forces of Mordor will have their work cut out for them when such stalwart warriors take the field. The Wardens of Gondor set includes 3 figures, and can be ordered now over on the Forge World site.
Goblins. They're everywhere. They're mean. They're nasty. They're coming after Frodo and the dwarves in The Hobbit. They're also available to order from Forge World. There's a Goblin Mercenary set you can pick up, or go all-out and get a whole Horde (goblins are certainly known for traveling in packs, after all).
Two ends of the spectrum over on Forge World's ordering page this week. On one hand, you've got the next set of Nazgul figures for The Hobbit. On the other hand, you've got doors for Rhinos and Land Raiders for a whole bunch of different Space Marine chapters.
The Nazgul are the elite of Sauron's fighting forces. They're his agents out in the land of Middle Earth, seeking out the One Ring, along with whatever nefarious plots Sauron's cooked up. You can now order a new trio of these deadly creatures from Forge World for your games of The Hobbit.
Games Workshop's a little bit of all over with this week's set of pre-releases that you can order now. The biggest one is probably the new Blood Angels codex, as well as a bunch of units for them, including Primaris Marines with Blood Angels insignia. Second would be the Blood Bowl items, which includes a new Elf team, along with an Elf pitch, team cards, and other various and sundry. Finally, there's some new The Hobbit releases, including a Battle Companies book.
Here we are, once more at the threshold to the weekend. I know I'm ready for it. It's been a busy week with a lot of work going on here at the office. I could use a day of just hanging out and playing with my toy soldiers with some good friends. At least, that's the plan for tomorrow. In the meantime, it's time to fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
On the platter today we have: Gundabad Orc Upgrade Set Available To Order from Forge World, Early Achaemenid Persian Immortals Available From Xyston Miniatures, More Really Useful Box Storage Items Available From Sally 4th, and New Iron Reich Warchief Available From Kromlech.
Games Workshop is looking to be all-inclusive with this week's set of releases. There's new Nurgle releases for 40k. There's a bunch of new box sets for Age of Sigmar, as well as a campaign system. There's even a pair of Hobbit releases. Let's take a look.
It's Friday, so that means it's new-order-day over at Forge World. Today's releases could've partially ended up in a Terrain Corner post, too, but since everything's all in one place, we'll put them here. They've got a new set for The Hobbit in the form of Bard the Bowman's Family. They've also got a new bundle for Blood Bowl, as well as some new tokens and a couple new pitches to play on.
A bit all over the map with this week's set of pre-orders from Forge World. In one corner, we've got a new armored vehicle for 40k, particularly the Sisters of Silence. In another corner we've got a Blood Angels Legion Transfer Sheet. And, in the final corner, there's some Iron Hill Dwarves armed with crossbows.
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. They're Gwaihir, the Windlord; and the Troll Brute.
A little different item for you today from Games Workshop. They've not come out with a Hobbit release for a bit, but you can get two kits from their webshop. One's the main crew, being Thorin Oakenshield & Company. The other is the Goblin King & Retinue. There's also some Blood Bowl bases, a new novel, and a game board.
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 you today with their new releases. There's the Iron Hills Chariot as well as the Legio Custodes Caladus Grav-Tank Annihilator.
Two ends of the spectrum, of sorts, with new figures over in the Forge World webshop this week. On one side, you've got a new Space Wolves Contemptor Dreadnaught (with and without weapon arms). On the other side, you've got some new characters available for The Hobbit.
The Hobbit is getting a couple more releases over on Forge World's website. It's two ends of the scale this week. You've got the industrious but short dwarves. And you've got the nearly-mindless and rather monstrous trolls. So, whether you want little-smashy or big-smashy, they've got something for you.
Forge World is once again hitting a bunch of different games with this week's set of pre-orders. Blood Bowl is getting another legendary Star Player. The Horus Heresy has the latest book. And for The Hobbit, the dwarves get a couple different reinforcements.
Seems Forge World is continuing on with their Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit releases this week. Last time we got some dwarves. This time we go for something a bit bigger. There's a new pair of Gundabad Ogres available to order. You can get them as a pair, singles, or as part of a unit bundle.
