The Algoryn faction for Beyond the Gates of Antares is getting some beefiness added to it. Warlord Games is taking orders for a new plastic command group, a new heavy weapon, and a new starter force. So you can get your new army, make sure it has a proper command structure, and give it the […]...

You’d think that both being rather mechanical in nature, the Cybermen and the Daleks would get along. Though, (thankfully for most of the rest of the universe) such is not the case. They clash with one-another just like they clash with other races. And that’s just what they’ll be do...

Those Soviets and Germans are at it again, looking to put the biggest piece of armor possible out onto the battlefield. Their incessant arms race (well, it is a war, after all) continues to bring bigger and stronger machines to the conflict. In this case, it’s the Zeus and the Mammoth, both ava...

I’ve always been a fan of a good map campaign for a game. It adds a whole other layer to things. What territories do you want to attack? Which can you lose? Where do you want your forces to go? Well, Warlord Games has come out with a set of map campaign rules for Test […]...

In a way, every time we play a historical wargame, we’re playing a bit of “what if?” with it. We know what happened (at least, roughly speaking) because it’s history. But you can change that up and do things like, “what if the cavalry hadn’t shown up in time at Wat...

We’re continuing our trek through the work week. Actually, in a way, for me it’s sort of like a Friday. I say “sort of” because I’m gonna be working from home tomorrow a bit, but I actually have the day off. Don’t worry, though. I’ll still be bringing you som...

It really is a day for the big guns to come out from Warlord Games. Along with the other releases, they also have their Algoryn Liberator with Plasma Destroyer available to pre-order. This is still a metal and resin version of the kit, as the plastic variant will be due out later this year....

Warlord Games is gearing up for the next supplement book to come out for Pike & Shotte. To Kill a King will be hitting shelves soon, and it’s a good time to bulk up your forces. As such, you can order a new Storming Party with Petards (with which you can use to hoist them), […]...

It’s time to bring in the big guns. During WWII, the Soviets and the Germans were in an arms race to bring the biggest tanks to the battlefield. Well, in the Weird War II setting of Konflikt ’47, that continues on. The Germans have the Zeus Heavy Mechpanzer, while the Russians have the Ma...

Gamers love to be the first ones with the new items available for the games they play. Heck, they can get outright hostile if someone else gets their toy soldiers first. As such, Warlord Games is offering pre-orders on the first wave of expansion sets for Test of Honour, their far-Eastern skirmish mi...

Well, after what seemed like two Thursdays in a row, we have made our way, finally, to Friday. And I, for one, welcome our new almost-weekend overlords. With any luck, your weekend will be filled with gaming. If not, I still hope it’s restful. But before we can get there, we should fill up on [...

I just love that title. “Wheels of Steel.” It fits in well with the classic rock I’ve got going on in the office today. Anyway, if you’re looking to get yourself some armored vehicle kits from Warlord Games, now’s a good time, as you can get 3 for just £40 for a short ti...

When writing rules for a game, you want to do your best to make sure they’re clear and uncomplicated. Sometimes, a part of a rule sounds good, and you don’t necessarily want to cut it, but you find that it’s just not quite in the theme or style you want for the game. That’s no...

I have, on multiple occasions, said how much I love when companies post their rules and stats for their games online. Well, Warlord Games has decided to post up the army lists for the various forces in Beyond the Gates of Antares on their website as free .pdf downloads. This will also allow them to [...

While temperatures are starting to rise here in the Northern Hemisphere, the idea of taking a nice vacation somewhere out in the Pacific still seems like a nice idea. I’ve never been surfing, but I’ve always meant to learn (yes, a surfing polar bear. It could happen). Needless to say, dur...

Doctor Who is getting a couple new games this year. One of them is the miniatures skirmish game coming from Warlord Games. If you’re one of the many Who (see what I did there?) have been wishing they could just jump ahead and time and get it, you’ll be happy to see that there’s a [&...

The most interesting thing about King Charles the I is that he was 5’6″ tall at the start of his reign, but only 4’8″ tall at the end of it (source). … Ok, seriously, that’s the only thing I could hear while reading about this book. Warlord Games has started taking...
