Forge World is hitting two ends of the timeline spectrum this week with their releases. On one side, they’re in the far off and mythical past of Blood Bowl with some new goblin secret weapon figures, plus a new pitch to play on, as well as bundling those in with teams and the base box […...

I know. I know. This was supposed to go up yesterday. Well, WordPress has been flaky lately and it missed its posting window. Hence why it’s going up now with a reworded opening talking about it not being posted on Saturday instead of saying, “I’m going to the LGS and gonna pick me ...

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...

By now, I’m sure you’ve probably heard about it. I mean, we mentioned it last week. But there’s a new edition of Warhammer 40k available to pre-order from Games Workshop. 8th Edition brings familiar mechanics that you’ve seen before with some new twists and ways to put forces ...

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)....

The new edition of 40k isn’t the only thing going on with that particular universe. Devil Pig Games is taking their game system used for Heroes of Normandie and sending it into the far future and far from Earth. Heroes of Black Reach will be a new game set in the grimdark future where there [&h...

June 3rd. That’s not that far away, really. A week and a half. That’s when you’ll be able to get your name on the list to get the newest edition of Warhammer: 40k from Games Workshop. Once your name’s on that list, it’ll be a 2-week wait until you get your game, as the o...

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 ...

The space-Egyptians are getting more love from Forge World. This time around, regular Tactical squads have an upgrade kit (or you can buy just a whole, full squad) and there’s some new Terminators available to order as well....

This could easily double as a Terrain Corner piece, since there’s quite a lot of new scenery that is available to order this week. Along with that, Games Workshop is celebrating quite a prestigious occasion for White Dwarf, the publication now being around for 40 years (I.E. – I’m a...

We all know that a Dreadnaught is a very old Space Marine that went above and beyond the call of duty during his regular service, but their body has been mostly blown to bits, so they’re tossed in a giant robotic body to keep them in the fight. But what happens when a Librarian gets […]...

Still miffed that when I was a custodian (including at this place), I never got to play with anything as cool as powered armor or a jetbike. Though riding around in the gators was always cool. Though emptying out the parking lot trashcans on a jetbike would’ve been cooler. Anyway, while I didn&...

Those super-soldiers, the space marines, are getting some more releases next week, thanks to Forge World. They’ve started taking orders for Iron Warriors Siege Terminators as well as Legion Moritats, armed with either plasma pistols or volkite serpentas (… whatever those might be)....

One expects to see tanks out on the battlefield when playing a game of 40k. There’s all manner of them around. And normally you might not expect to see one when playing Blood Bowl. Well, if you’re playing for or against a Dwarven team, that might not be the case. And this week, Forge Worl...

So, a while back, Forge World was coming out with a bunch of Adeptus Custodes miniatures. I remember lamenting how cool those space janitors had it while all I ever got was a kinda neat portable pressure washer for after basketball and football games at the Arena. Well, if you’ve been wanting t...

In the 40k universe, Space Marine armor has gone through quite a few changes over the centuries. Though game-wise it’s all come down to that 3+ armor that we all know (and maybe love, but that depends on what side of the ceramite your figures are on). But aesthetically, it’s certainly cha...

Well, seems that the “home base” was getting a bit jealous of Forge World getting all the Primarchs to themselves. Games Workshop has started taking orders for several new miniatures, including Roboute Guilliman (or “Bobby” to his friends) who is part of a “Triumvirate o...

Back when I was a custodian, the coolest things I thought we had were the big floor scrubbers or the portable, electric power washers. Space Marine Custodians get a lot cooler gear. One such piece is the Contemptor-Achilles Dreadnaught, available for pre-order from Forge World now....

With my love of giant robots, I’ve always loved Terminators in 40k. I know. I know. They’re a guy in a suit. But considering the suit-to-guy ratio there, they’re basically giant robots (I mean, Gundams are “a guy in a suit, too”). I’ve just always loved the way Ter...

The situation in the galaxy in the 41st millennium is certainly in flux right now. The Gathering Storm series is showing that new things are afoot and it might actually have some lasting impacts on the story. The next book, Fracture of Biel-Tan, is up for pre-order now, along with some new minis to g...

As I’ve said, space janitors in the 41st millennium have all the coolest things. The Legio Custodes get these cool Coronus Grav-carriers to get from place to play. Best we had was a couple gators (like, not actual alligators, but those 6-wheeled vehicles) back at the Arena. Ah well, you can ord...

I was a custodian for a while. I worked at a grocery store, a college sports arena, and a hospital (not at the same time). I tell you what, though, I never got to use any cool equipment like dreadnaught suits and grav tanks. Man, space-janitors in the Warhammer universe get all the cool gear!...

That could be the forces of Chaos. That could just be a disgruntled employee down at the local coffee shop. That means there ...

Even if you’re a heavily-modified Mechanicum trooper or officer, walking your way across open terrain in battle is a great way to get yourself a one-way ticket to seeing the Emperor in the afterlife. As such, the Macrocarid Explorators were designed as a transport, command vehicle, and heavy we...
